Goodbye Disaster

Verse 1:

"Dear me, 
here I am.
And I'll spare the salutations as I get straight to the point. 
You messed up,
You're just debris.
And right now you're left with wandering, wondering what could have been."

Bridge:

"No-one seems to get it right around here,
Everyone complains about the life they've had,
and I could choose to end up just like them, 
But I'd prefer to earn the good than to morph into something bad." 

Chorus:

"It's up to me to wake up from this slumber,
to look inside the mirror,
and say 'Goodbye Disaster'.
It's up to me to move on from December, 
and find the light right at the end of this dark, dark tunnel.

It's up to me to say 'Goodbye Disaster'. 
and 'Hello' to the person whom I'd like you all to remember."

Verse 2:

"Dear me, 
here we are.
And we'd rather complain about this, but it's time to make a change,
and make a new start.
You messed up,
but you're not debris.
You can make a tower again,
from the rubble of the life you held before. 

Bridge:

"I just want to get it right around here,
Everyone complains about the life they used to have,
and I could choose to end up just like that, 
 I'd prefer to earn the good than to morph into something bad." 

Chorus:

"It's up to me to wake up from this slumber,
to look inside the mirror,
and say 'Goodbye Disaster'.
It's up to me to move on from December, 
and find the light right at the end of this dark, dark tunnel.

It's up to me to say 'Goodbye Disaster'. 
and 'Hello' to the person whom I'd like you all to remember."


Verse 3:

""I just want to get it right around here,
I don't want to complain about my life, not anymore.
and I could choose to end up just like that, 
but I would much prefer to look right in the mirror

And say goodbye to what was a disaster."

Chorus:

"It's up to me to wake up from this winter,
to look inside the mirror,
and say 'Goodbye Disaster'.
It's up to me to move on from December, 
and find the light right at the end of this dark, dark tunnel.

It's up to me to say 'Goodbye Disaster'. 
and 'Hello' to the person whom I'd like you all to remember."

 

 

Hypocrite

Verse 1:

"I need to give up this drink,
'Cos right now there's one too many bottles on the floor.
And I'm sick and tired of this hypocrite,
who tells me that I'm fine when the ceiling claims nothing feels alright.

I stare at these empty walls,
and make sure I'm too damn drunk to tell myself I'm stuck right here.
I roam this messed-up halls,
and listen to the voices in-between my ears."

Chorus:

"I'm sick of this, so sick of feeling all of this.
I try to leave but wouldn't that make me my hypocrite?
I say I'm fine but god that's just one painful lie.
I'll stay inside and tell myself...

Verse 2:

"I need to give up this life,
'Cos right now I watch outside and see my life just pass me by.
I need to end this tonight,
but I know damn well that I'll lie down and find the time to...

I need to give up this drink,
but right now there's one too many reasons why I won't.
And I'm sick and tired of what people say,
when they know their life's well-made, perched right on their silly golden thrones!"

Chorus:

"I'm sick of this, so sick of feeling all of this.
I try to leave but wouldn't that make me my hypocrite?
I say I'm fine but god that's just one stupid lie.
I'll stay inside and tell myself I'll be alright...
Yeah, I'm just fine...

Verse 3:

"I need to give up this silence,
I need to give up this stance.
I need to give up this fighting,
I need to give up this chance.

I need to control my anger,
I need to control my mind.
But could you control these issues,
if these problems were no longer mine?

I need to give up this drink.
I need to give up this drink.
I need to give up this drink.
(Oh, oh, oh)

I need to give up this drink,
I need to give up this drink,
I need to give up this drink,
but I'm such a fucking hypocrite!

Chorus:

"I'm sick of this, so sick of feeling all of this.
I try to leave but wouldn't that make me my hypocrite?
I say I'm fine but god that's just one fucking lie.
I'll stay inside and tell myself I'll be alright...
Yeah, I'm just fine...

 

 

 

Everybody Wins

Verse 1:

"How about we settle this,
face to face, kiss to kiss?
How about we throw the world,
out of alignment?

Would you think that we did good,
if you saw me like you should?
Would you rush me if you could?
I'm twitching with excitement."

Bridge: 

"Don't slow me down.
I've been around one too many times before.
Don't stop us now,
Don't settle down.
It's time to burn this fucker to the ground!"

Chorus:

"You have your fill,
I have my claim.
Everybody wins.
You get your shame,
and I get my say.
Isn't that what you wanted baby?"

Verse 2:

"Take me all or all I've got,
I don't mind, pretend it's love.
Leave me while you take the lot.
I don't mind the torture. 

In return I'll beg and rise:
"Be my object! Be my wife!"
We could have the perfect lives,
Until it's all over."

Bridge: 

"Don't slow me down.
I've been around one too many times before.
Don't stop us now,
Don't settle down.
It's time to burn this fucker to the ground!"

Chorus:

"You have your fill,
I have my claim.
Everybody wins.
You get your shame,
and I get my say.
Isn't that what you wanted baby?" (X2)

Verse 3:

"So darling,
What is it you'd like to say?
You knew about me since day 1.

So darling, please!
Be this fantasy that all guys seem to crave. 
Isn't that what you needed, baby?"

Chorus:

"You have your fill,
I have my claim.
Everybody wins.
You get your shame,
and I get my say.
Isn't that what you wanted baby?" (X2)

 

Reason

Verse 1:

"Mistletoe and heavy snow - the season I hate most,
the heavy lights, the blinding sights that make me feel that I should have,
a reason to continue, when I'm solid as a ghost.
More transparent than most.


Couples here and couples there, two plus two, they're everywhere.
Never thought I'd see the day when all I love is open air.
A reason to continue, yet it never hits my mind. 
A reason like an alibi."

Chorus:


"I could be my own damn reason,
Making footprints meant for no-one else,
I could be my own damn help. 
And if I should lose my reason, 
Then I'll find it once again when I look back,
To this melancholic, broken season. "

Verse 2:


"Cheers and jeers and Christmas sneers,
Until the twenty-sixth strikes by.
Memories left along this pavement,
With all my resolve to run tonight.
I can hardly make some sense,
Of where I am and who stands by my side, 
Until the falling snow reminds me why..."

Chorus:

"I could be my own damn reason,
Making footprints meant for no-one else,
I could be my own damn help. 
And if I should lose my reason, 
Then I'll find it once again when I look back,
To this melancholic, broken season. "

Verse 3:


"And then I watch nostalgic times, 
Those wound-up eyes, those flashing smiles.
Sometimes I forget I have those too.
So I retrace my fractured lines, 
And cover back the footprints I left behind,
until I find myself surrounded by the..."

Chorus:


"I will be my own damn reason,
Making footprints meant for no-one else,
I will be my own damn help. 
And if I should lose my reason, 
Then I'll find it once again when I look back,
To this multicolored, dazzling season. "


"Maybe there's no reason, 
But if there is I'll find it in the mistletoe and heavy snow.
The season I love most."

 

Why?

Verse 1:

"We were far from perfect, but I thought it was enough,
But I guess you couldn't say the same.
I had my flaws, and you had none,
but it never gave you the right to walk away.

I figured it out from someone else,
and you could never trick me.
I guess it's time to say goodbye,
but I just want you to tell me..."

Chorus:

"Why did you feel the need to hide,
the secret that we knew?
Why did you lie and tell yourself, that you could live with both of us?
Why did you think you'd escape this unscathed?
You knew I would discover him one day.
Why did you think you could get away?
Well go ahead and run away!"

Verse 2:


I'd never thought I'd see the day,
where I wasted an Hello
I'm far from great, but all you had to do was go and tell me.
You couldn't do that, and any hope I had in myself has torn apart.
I hope he makes you happy, he must have a better heart...

Chorus:

"Why did you feel the need to hide,
the secret that we knew?
Why did you lie and tell yourself, that you could live with both of us?
Why did you think you'd escape this unscathed?
You knew I would discover him one day.
Why did you think you could get away?
Well go ahead and run away!"


Verse 3:

"I remember you smiling and holding my hand like you always did.
Were you lying back then or were you genuine sometimes?
I guess I'll move on, but the hurt and the pain as I'm writing this song,
will never go away, no it will never go away.

I guess that's what I needed to say..."

Chorus:

"Why did you feel the need to hide,
the secret that we knew?
Why did you lie and tell yourself, that you could live with both of us?
Why did you think you'd escape this unscathed?
You knew I would discover him one day.
Why did you think you could get away?
Well go ahead and run away!"

 

 

Hello


Verse 1:

"Don't mind me, I'm sitting here,
with no real reason to make you stop and stare.
Why do you stop and stare right now?
I didn't mean to catch your eye,
but I'd bet you'd say that too,
and I wonder, is this how our story will begin?"


Chorus:

"Maybe you're the one,
But maybe not just yet.
Let's start with an Hello,
and hope we never have to say Goodbye."

Verse 2: 

"I have to say, I never thought you'd take my breath away
but there it goes again, it always goes again. 
I have to say, I wouldn't mind if you wanted to stay,
but I've been down this road too many times before,
but somehow with you I think I'm sure. 
Am I really sure?"

Chorus:

"Maybe you're the one,
But maybe not just yet.
Let's start with an Hello,
and hope we never have to say Goodbye.

Maybe I'm the one,
who thinks before he acts,
But this December night, under these Christmas lights,
I'll take that chance and never feel regret."


Verse 3:

"I hate the word, its counterpart is always waiting, waiting for you to leave.
I've said it so often that sometimes I feel numb, comfortably numb.
But right here, right there, right everywhere, you always make me see.
That this is my last 'Hello'
'Goodbye'
'Hello'
'Goodbye'
'Hello'

Chorus:

"Maybe you're the one,
But maybe not just yet.
Let's start with an Hello,
and hope we never have to say Goodbye.

Maybe I'm the one,
who thinks before he acts,
But this December night, under these Christmas lights,
I'll take that chance and never feel regret."

 

 

Tokyo Lights

Verse 1:

"There's a lot you can hide, under Tokyo lights.
All the truth and the lies, all the fire and the ice.
I know you mean harm, yet I'm wrapped around your arm. 
There's a lot we can hide, behind these broken smiles."

Chorus:

"When I see you chase me down, I'm terrified.
Knowing you control the world, leaves me paralyzed.
And when these harmless lights fade out, so do I.
You have me under your control, behind these Tokyo Lights of yours."

Verse 2:

"You decide where to go, you decide what I know.
The streets are alive with informants and alibis.
You decided my fate, and by now it's far too late to try.
It's far too late to cry,
under these blinding lights of mine."

Chorus:

"When I see you chase me down, I'm terrified.
Knowing you control the world, leaves me paralyzed.
And when these harmless lights fade out, so do I.
You have me under your control, behind these Tokyo Lights of yours."

Verse 3:

"You swept me off my hands and feet, so selflessly.
You promised the weight of the world would fall down yet you'd keep me safe.
Now I'm dying and trying to hold back, what's keeping me pinned down. 
Do you know what I'm talking about?

Chorus:

"When I see you chase me down, I'm terrified.
Knowing you control the world, leaves me paralyzed.
And when these harmless lights fade out, so do I.
You 
have me under your control, behind these Tokyo Lights of yours."

"And at the end of today, there's just one thing I'll say.
I hope you enjoyed your control, but the Tokyo Lights will be mine someday."

 

The Broken Sky

Verse 1:

All I see are stars. They shine so bright, across the broken sky.
Sometimes I stare at mine, and watch as they flicker, watch as they soar tonight.
Why can't I burn as bright as you? Or dance like you? Or inspire like you?
Why can't I join you? And light up this darkness tonight.

*Chorus*

I have some questions. And I need some answers, I need some laughter.
I have conceptions, that sparkle before me, across the broken sky.
I have my nightmares. They tell me I'm broken, they tell me I'm frozen.
But as long as you're shining there, then I'll keep on dancing, along to this heart of mine.

Verse 2:

It's close to midnight, it's close to daylight, and I've yet to close my eyes.
Where the witches departed, the dreamless all started to shine.
And I've yet to join them, but that means that you and I,

No longer you and I.

Will you be alright, burning alone across the broken sky?
I wish I could join you, but I'm needed elsewhere. I'm needed somewhere.
I wish I could tell you, that I'm gonna miss you, across this broken sky of mine.

Chorus:

I have some questions. And I need some answers, I need some laughter.
I have conceptions, that sparkle before me, across the broken sky.
I have my nightmares. They tell me I'm broken, they tell me I'm frozen.
But as long as you're shining there, then I'll keep on dancing, along to this heart of mine.

Verse 3:

All I see is magic. Millions of stars, and millions of broken hearts.
I hope you'll be alright in time. Shining forever, across this broken lie.
All I see is magic. Millions of questions, millions of disasters.
I hope I'll be alright in time. Dancing forever, across this broken fight.
Why can't I burn as bright as you?
I wish I could tell you.

Chorus:

I have some questions. And I need some answers, I need some laughter.
I have conceptions, that sparkle before me, across the broken sky.
I have my nightmares. They tell me I'm broken, they tell me I'm frozen.
But as long as you're shining there, then I'll keep on dancing, along to this heart of mine.

I'm my own broken sky.


You Had Me...I Lost You

Verse 1:

"I morphed into a monster, yet you held on to what I was.
Afraid to see what I've become, afraid to see just what you lost.
Scared about the future, and I ran with all my might. 
I was scared, and you were not..."

Chorus:

"You had me, and I lost your faith.
I'm so far away, and the distance will remain the same.
No matter how much that you think I've changed, I lost you along this alleyway,
and no matter what you want to say.
I guess there's only room for one of me, and the person you see is a monster (A monster, A monster...)
You had me...I lost you."

Verse 2:

"How did I trick you, into throwing what you had away,
When you told me you were there to stay?
I guess I need to keep myself in check, when you turn out just like all the rest.
How did you see me, behind the iron mask, behind the broken melancholic glass?"

Chorus:

"You had me, and I lost your faith.
I'm so far away, and the distance will remain the same.
No matter how much that you think I've changed, I lost you along this alleyway,
and no matter what you want to say.
I guess there's only room for one of me, and the person you see is a monster (A monster, A monster...)
You had me...I lost you."

Verse 3:

"And here we are alone again, when all I needed was to keep you safe,
by running away.
And yet you hold on for dear life, telling me that everything will be alright
But I'm not alright, I'm not fine...
You had me, I lost you, you won me back and I lost track.
I had me, I lost me, so how could I ever earn you back?"

Chorus:

"You had me, and I lost your faith.
I'm so far away, and the distance will remain the same.
No matter how much that you think I've changed, I lost you along this alleyway,
and no matter what you want to say.
I guess there's only room for one of me, and the person you see is a monster (A monster, A monster...)
You had me...I lost you."
