GIVEAWAY

Don’t be scared
We’re open to everything now
Nothing’s wrong
Just ain’t been ourselves for a while
I wasn’t calling
You’ve been down
Selling yourself for the song
Spending time
Saving yourself for no one
I wasn’t falling
But you caught me away
When we fall
Got to give it all away
Can’t hold on
Never had it anyway
When we’re gone
Never really far away
When we fall
There’s nothing left to give away

If you try to show me the world tonight
We’ll get lost
Maybe we’ll lose ourselves
I wasn’t talking but you heard me anyway
When we fall
We got to give it all away
Can’t hold on
Never had it anyway
When we’re gone
Never really far away
When we fall
There’s nothing left to give away
To giveaway
Got to give it all away
You’ve got to give it all away
When we fall
We got to give it all away
Can’t hold on
Never had it anyway
When we’re gone
Never really far away
When we fall
There’s nothing left to give away
To giveaway

THE ONE

Just throw your hands up to the sun
I heard you’re looking for the one
The more you look, the less you’re gonna find it
Your heart is full of holes again
You’re falling through the soul again
You think so much you’re gonna blow the idea
Life… it’s the delicate tiles of life
With its glorious twists and turns
And no matter which way you go
It’s the greatest ride of your life
How we measured those tears we cried
With a bitter hope for the best
When you’re coming back down
What are you falling for?
Every time I close my eyes
I can feel the world in love
Every time I close my eyes
It’s bigger than the whole of us
Something in the atmosphere
Underneath the skies above
Every time I close my eyes
I can feel the world in love
Tell me where do we begin
When every day we start again
And every day we win some and we lose it
If all we are is our mistakes
The world is yours to navigate
When practicing the art of doing nothing
Life… take a very bright look at life
It’s a marvelous thing to know
It’s a marvelous thing
What are you looking for?
Every time I close my eyes
I can feel the world in love
Every time I close my eyes
It’s bigger than the whole of us
Something in the atmosphere
Underneath the skies above
Every time I close my eyes
I can feel the world in love
Are you looking for the one?
For the one
Are you looking for the one?
For the one
Are you looking for the one?
For the one
Are you looking for the one?
For the one
Every time I close my eyes
I can feel the world in love
Every time I close my eyes
It’s bigger than the whole of us
Something in the atmosphere
Underneath the skies above
Every time I close my eyes
I can feel the world in love

STARS

Gonna build a rocket
Anytime you want it
Paint it pretty colors
Gonna light it up and take us to the moon
That’s what I’m gonna do
That’s what I’m gonna
Save up all the paper
Gonna need it later
Maybe take a minute
To get in my head directions of the way
You want to get away
I’m taking you
Through the eyes of the black hole
And the open doors
Through the cracks in the pavement
In conversation
From the top of the empire
To a state unknown
If I say that I’m leaving
Just got to hang on
‘Cause we’re just stars
Trying to get back to where we’re from
One by one, we’re gonna leave this planet
So don’t look back
‘Cause you know that it’s all just time
When you’ve got nothing on your mind
You’ve made it
Somewhere in the future
Talk about forever
Take yourself a picture
Waiting in the rain for a postcard from the sun
The one that never comes
The one that never shows
The one that never…is building something
From the heart of the wreckage
In another zone
Are we losing our balance?
I think we’ve got vertigo
From the top of the empire
To a state unknown
If I tell you I’m leaving
Just got to hang on
‘Cause we’re just stars
Trying to get back to where we’re from
One by one, we’re gonna leave this planet
So don’t look back
‘Cause you know that it’s all just time
When you’ve got nothing on your mind
You’ve made it
From the top of the empire
To a state unknown
Are we losing our balance?
I think we’ve got vertigo
‘Cause we’re just stars
Trying to get back to where we’re from
One by one, we’re gonna leave this planet
So don’t look back
‘Cause you know that it’s all just time
When you’ve got nothing on your mind
You’ve made it
‘Cause we’re just stars
Trying to get back to where we’re from
One by one, we’re gonna leave this planet
So don’t look back
‘Cause you know that it’s all just time
When you’ve got nothing on your mind
You’ve made it

CARNIVAL

Am I loser or a fool?
And everything that I’m supposed to be
Feels like I’ve fallen from grace
And into a place where I belong
I know my body’s getting old
One day we will fall down
But in my heart a drum is beating
A carnival inside my head
Before they turn the music up
Before they tell us to go home again
Can I kiss your face?
And tell you always I love you now
Before we change our minds
Can we go dancing somewhere?
‘Cause in my heart a drum is beating
A carnival inside my head
Oh when we talk in so many words
We’ve got to live this life a bit harder
And when we’re thinking so many words
We’ve got to bring each other together
We’ve got to bring each other together
Before we wake up all alone
Before the rhythm has to start again
Can I watch you climb
Climb over the widths of history
You keep your medals in the drawer
I wonder who they’re for
Can we go dancing under water?
A carnival inside my head
Oh when we talk in so many words
We’ve got to live this life a bit harder
And when we’re thinking so many words
We’ve got to bring each other together (x6)
Together! (x6)
There’s a drum that’s beating in my heart
And inside my head there is a carnival
There’s a drum that’s beating in my heart
And inside my head there is a carnival
And inside my head there is a carnival
Together! (x6)

ANIMALS

Monday, Monday, ordinary
Tell me how your life will grow
Will you walk around in circles
Looking for a place to go
There’s a devil in the detail looking down
Mama’s gonna make you a paper crown
You know it has to happen but you don’t know why
So you’re gonna give the medication one more try
Shout it out! Shout it out!
We could be the animals
We could be the monsters now (now)
And nobody’s gonna take us out
Shout it out!
Waiting for the big Big Bang
Shout it out!
We could be the animals
We could bring the whole place down (down)
And the world is gonna know your name
Shout it out! Shout it out!
Monday, Monday, what’s your story?
Write your headline while you can
Bells of holy, days of glory
Did you ever lay a plan
There’s a battle of selection going on
Daddy’s gonna buy you the morning sun
And we’ll all be looking pretty in a bright white light
So I guess it’s just a matter of death and life
So shout it out! Shout it out!
We could be the animals
We could be the monsters now (now)
And nobody’s gonna take us out
Shout it out!
Waiting for the big Big Bang
Shout it out!
We could be the animals
We could bring the whole place down (down)
And the worries going over me
Shout it out! Shout it out!
Fanfares tearing up the pavement
The spiders spinning the horizon
These fireworks burning up the naked sky
Fly, all the people in your sky
Shout it out! Shout it out!
We could be the animals
We could be the monsters now (now)
And nobody’s gonna take us out
Shout it out!
Waiting for the big Big Bang
Shout it out!
We could be the animals
We could bring the whole place down (down)
And the world is gonna know your name
Shout it out! Shout it out!

US AND OURS

Gold hearts breaking into pieces
I love your singing hallelujah
Earth won’t fall but the mountain’s gonna shake
How we dancing in the waves tonight
Speed lights shooting in the corner
Star by simple little minds
We’re falling like birds from the open sky
Are we heading for the big fire
You said don’t, don’t waste your time on my
Eyes, they’ve got broken
Sight and holes and tears that hide away oh oh
You said please don’t ask me for the last word
The silence starts in full swing
We’re listening ‘cause somebody that hurts is somebody worth remembering
Oh oh oh oh oh
Us and ours
Oh oh oh oh oh
It’s gonna be a bright day someday afternoon
In this whole house you said it
Oh oh oh oh oh
Us and ours
Oh oh oh oh oh
Gonna like those highs and know it’s all flesh and bone
The sun will set and we’ll all start dreaming
Hopes of the promise that I held on my tongue
Lost along the way
It’s hard to lose anything that you never had
Might  have loved the time we make
These days getting something out of your faith
Wrap the words around it
But the true result’s on the perfect sense and it’s never to be heard again
You said don’t don’t count your blessings too much
You make them less in size
And feel until you’ve gone away
You said, hold me
But please don’t hold too tightly
Still got lots of lines to fill
And homes to build and a body that hurts is a body worth moving
Oh oh oh oh oh
Us and ours
Oh oh oh oh oh
It’s gonna be a bright day someday afternoon
In this whole house you said it
Oh oh oh oh oh
Us and ours
Oh oh oh oh oh
Gonna like those highs and know it’s all flesh and bone
The sun will set and we’ll all start dreaming

HEAVEN’S FALLING (avec Jake Emlyn)

Don’t want your love, what’s yours is yours
Don’t want to be king
Can have it all but don’t leave me anything
Don’t need your votes
No taking sides
You’ve got your body in the rear
You’ve got your head on, that’s the way it is
There’s a box of wonder calling me
Through my window
Through my window
There’s nothing here for you to see
To feel your halo
Feel your halo
Honey, I see your light
Now that heaven’s falling around us
Heaven’s falling around us
Gotta get up and get away sometimes
Honey, I see your light
Now that heaven’s falling around us
Heaven’s falling around us
Gotta get up and get away sometimes
I’ll never give you what you want
I’ll give you everything you need
You put your body in a storm
And now the water’s gonna carry you away
No resting place
All angels fly
You know you’re never coming down
You know you’re never gonna come back here again
I look you in your eyes, you’re there but you’re not
You say you’re always happy and you’re smiling a lot
But do you really care?
Do you feel anything, yeah?
There’s a lightning striking us again
Still feel your halo
You gotta get up and get away sometimes
Honey, I see your light
Now that heaven’s falling around us
Heaven’s falling around us
Gotta get up and get away sometimes
Honey, I see your light
Now that heaven’s falling around us
Heaven’s falling around us
Gotta get up and get away sometimes
So turn on your TV if you want to see the world
Your life is 3D, you never have to meet yourself
Come let’s walk by the houses with the dead people living in them
Left in their living rooms, blessed in their little tombs
Furniture designed around a wide screen
High beam summoning in the iris on a green cold face
We’re running and arriving at the same old place
Gotta get up and get away sometimes
I look you in your eye, you’re there but you’re not
You say you’re always happy and you’re smiling a lot
But do you really care?
Do you feel anything, yeah?
Honey, I see your light
Now that heaven’s falling around us
Heaven’s falling around us
Gotta get up and get away sometimes
Honey, I see your light
Now that heaven’s falling around us
Heaven’s falling around us
Gotta get up and get away sometimes
The lust for power is rooted in weakness not in strength
If you already had power you wouldn’t need it again
Can a shield become a weapon? It was made for self defence
Is inhumanity and greed the true nature of men?
How did our minds disengage from the tides and the waves?
Too tired cos we’re wired to be tied to a wage
Whose lives can we save? From a mic on a stage
In a city where we’re born astride of a grave….

RAVEN

All the gods came to the human calls
There were more numbers than what we thought
Couldn’t keep track so they gave us all a name
Saw a young shadow dancing in the street
Knew that someday she will comfort me
when the day’s labour is done we’ll meet again
And we don’t want much that we don’t have now
We could ask for more but we don’t know how
It’s the choice we made, it’s the life we know
When the raven calls and it’s time to go
Every idea has a starting place
Nothing begins in an empty space
I can go farther when I look into your heart
Race you once more and we don’t come back
Heard you’ve been hanging about in black
If we leave now we’ll be home before a star
It’s a lonely way but it’s all we know
When my raven calls and it’s time to go
My love is a raven
And she’s more than enough
Tell my love if you see her
She’s my raven and she’s loved
My love is a raven
And she’s more than enough
Tell my love if you see her
She’s my raven and she’s loved

S.A.D (avec Ren Harvieu)

hands will never move accross
the face that’s on the wall
every second hour is a place where we can fall
nobody will miss us if they leave us all alone
hold our hands together til the last of us have gone
we could have been bad while we had the chance
we could have been sad for just a little bit longer
just a little bit longer
dirty lips will have us turning into kings and queens
proudly watching over all the mess that we have been
tie me to your promisses and I won’t let you down
somewhere in the distance we can turn it all around
we could have been bad while we had the chance
we could have been sad for just a little bit longer
just a little bit longer
just a little bit longer
ohhhh ohhhh
we could have been bad when while we had the chance
we could have been sad for just a little bit longer
just a little bit longer
just a little bit longer

END OF EVERYTHING

sometime in this sweet sweet century
oh we will die together
oh my love my sweet my sweet  ___ we will surrender
sometime before we become ennemies
could we lay down here somewhere
underneath the stars upon a hill my sweet surrender
follow me with your parts of  the deal and all your sorrow
enter if you can through all the tears of your parade
cause it’s the end of everything we know
the end of all we know the end of all we’ll ever know
is this the end of everything
end of everything we know
the fall of all control the end of all we know
or the start of something beautiful
oh my love my last sweet jubilance
we’ll never lose our way again
until we have need to cry for help
there will be silence
old sweet melody sing for my queen
when you are restless come to rest
gentle is the sound of all around of all around
sometime in this sweet sweet century
oh we will die together
sometime in this sweet sweet century
is this the end of everything we know
the end of all we know the end of all we’ll ever know
is this the end of everything
end of everything we know
the fall of all control the end of all we know
or the start of something beautiful
or the start of something beautiful
you know (x3)
is this the end of everything we know (x4)

GHOST

ten minutes now, twenty four days
almost a year
since yesterday
thought that I was over it last night
but there’s no getting over it tonight
we try to make the best of it we can
I almost feel we’re moving on
I can still feel the ghost
walking through the walls
and it’s calling every night
in lonely memory hall
I still feel the ghost
and I hope you’re happy now
and I have to let you go but I wish that you were here
all things will pass
you taught me that
I watch the storms pulling me back
and I don’t know what day it is no more
I never see the way it is no more
I think I’m getting better now I’m sure
I think I’m getting better now
I can still feel the ghost
walking through the walls
and it’s calling every night
in lonely memory hall
I still feel the ghost
I can still feel the ghost
and I hope you’re happy now
and I have to let you go but I wish that you were here
I can still feel the ghost
walking through the walls
and it’s calling every night
in lonely memory hall
I can still feel the ghost
I can still feel the loss
I can still feel the ghost
And I hope you’re happy now
And I have to let you go
But I wish that you were here

MORNING BELLE

a morning belle to raise the dead
a ray of hope alights ahead
forever everything is leading us somewhere
waiting for the morning belle
before I lay a place to rest
I hope today we will be friends
forever sitting with the mortals and angels
waiting for a morning belle
I was a long long way from home
you were in search of the lost and found
there is a cold echo on my tongue
it takes a good man to know he’s down
after the crash came a hail of songs
it was the call of a thousand ghosts
it was the turn of an earth unfrozen
and she’s opened up the door
amen, here comes a fire tearing up the walls again
when this is over, she’s a morning belle
all room in candles, rememberance for the ones you love
sweep off the ashes, she’s a morning belle
a beating drum the lonely sound
a broken glass of the leftovers on the ground
if there’s a call, will she call me in
if there’s a god, does she know my name
it was the turn of the earth unfrozen
and she’s gonna save us all
amen
she’s a morning belle
here comes the fire tearing up the walls again
when this is over, she’s a morning belle
all room in candles, rememberance for the ones you love
sweep off the ashes, she’s a morning belle
a morning belle, to raise the dead
a morning belle that lights ahead

THE LAMB

everyone has a journey filled with hope and adventure
every journey leads somewhere I will wait for you there
going over some old ground
trying not to make a sound
if you ever need someone, I will wait for you here
somewhere over the mountain in a cave you will find me
hanging out with the shadows
I will wait for you here
everyone has a journey
no one ever goes nowhere
over water and deserts
when you’re lonely you’re here
through the battle of order
into your present order
over rivers and oceans
I will wait for you there
I will wait for you there
when you know you have made it, you won’t even have noticed
you’re too busy for nothing
I will wait for you here
every lamb needs a lion
every earth needs a sky
when you’re tired of searching
I will wait for you here
I will wait for you here
