LYRICS:

Melody

These creepy little thoughts
That build up in my head
At night came out to haunt me
When I’m in my bed
I start thinking of life
With its winding roads
And all the crazy accidents
That come along

But when you sleep with me

Our breathing in harmony
All I hear is a sweet melody
Right around 5 am
Birds celebrate the coming day
Light gives up its hiding place
And black and white make room for gray
Suddenly I know
the world won’t end today
It’s nearly tomorrow
10,000 miles away
Oh and yesterday
Went faster than a holiday
Nothing makes much sense now anyway
If instead I had a shed
Full of puppies in my head
You would be the one
I’d like to share them with
Cause you’re about the only thing
That keeps me sane
In this place
All my dreams are at stake
When I go to bed
But when you sleep with me
Our breathing in harmony

All I hear is a sweet melody

By Your Side

I want to be with you all of the time
I want to hold your hand
I want to make you smile
I want to bite your lips
I’m sure they taste like wine
I want to steal the sun
And build our private sky

I want to write your name one thousand times
Then write a song with mine
And make it all rhyme
I want be that cat
That lives nine lives
So i can spend each one
Just lying by your side

Cause when you kiss me i see circles
And everything around turns purple
And time slows down like a turtle
I want to be with you all of the time
I want to hold your hand
I want to make you smile
I want to bite your lips
I’m sure they taste like wine
I want to steal the sun
And build our private sky
I want to write your name one thousand times
Then write a song with mine
And make it all rhyme
I want be that cat
That lives nine lives
So i can spend each one

By your side

Photograph

I took a photograph of us
Our eyes are smiling
Our love young
Time, you can’t touch us now
Come closer
Lay your head against my skin
So i can feel what you’re thinking
If now could be forever
And tomorrow a man made lie
I could be your breathing air
And you could be anything you like
We are much lighter in the water
So let’s step out of our clothes
Forget our doubts
Let’s be snow
And melt in the ocean
The air feels like butter
Your lips taste like summer
Wish we could just float
Like petals in a vase
And forget the shore
Ever was
Those flowers you put in my hair
I will leave them
Forever there
So if tomorrow ever comes
Breaks our fins
Dries our pond
I’ll still have a garden to dream in
Can you tell me
That story again
The one about two lovers
The one that never ends
If now could be forever
And tomorrow a man made lie
I could be your breathing air
And you could be anything you like
I took a photograph of us
Our eyes are smiling|
Our love young
Time couldn’t touch us then

Perfect For Each Other

I got the sunshine
And you got the flowers
I got the bells
And you got the tower
I got all day
And you a few hours
Quick, let’s go get married
Cause we’re perfect for each other
I got the eggs
And you got the flour
I got the fuse box
And you got the power
I got the wheels
And you got the tires
Let’s get married
Cause we’re perfect for each other
I want to leave
And you want to stay
No matter where we are
We’ll always be ok
Cause I got one end
And you got the other
What else should we need
When we got one another
I am water
And you are fire
I am a break
And you are tired
I am the preacher
You are the choir
I am the birds
And you are the wire
Oh we’re perfect for each other
We are perfect for each other

Kiss Me

Life is so worth it
And with you it’s just perfect
We celebrate our birthdays
Every single day
Four walls one universe
Two hearts in one bed
Three words still unsaid
But nothing says i love you like a kiss
So kiss me
We know we act insane
Like no one else exists these days
That’s what love does to your brain
You play with my hair
I stick flowers in your beard
I love your silly tricks
And you love my every quirk
But nothing says I love you like a kiss
So kiss meLove is like a bar of soap
It works only if you use it
But it slips away
As soon as you try to squeeze it
Kiss me
Softly

I Could Be

I could be the biggest baby you’ll ever meet
And I could be the wisest tree still counting centuries
I can be the darkest shade of fear
And I can be the brightest moon
But I can’t be the way you want me to
I could write a book with everything I should’ve said
And i could build a road with all the signals I misread
I can make waves on a water bed
And I can make a living too
But I can’t be the way you want me to
I can be the girl who laughs as loud as neon green
And I can be the girl who cries silently
I can be as cold as winter rain
And I can be as warm as June
But I can’t be the way you want me to
And I can’t be the way you want me to

Stay

Hey, it’s gonna be ok
Don’t be afraid of the rain
The sun always finds its way out again
There’s so much words can say
There’s so much light can portray
So just hold my hand today
Until these clouds are swept away
By an airplane
Until together we find a way to brave this rain
Stay
For one more day
Until we can say
We’re best friends again
Until our brain goes numb
And our egos start to bend
Until together we find a way to brave this rain
Why don’t you stay
Why don’t you stay
Why don’t you stay
Until this sky goes by like a raging hurricane
Stay until one by one the stars come out to play
Stay until
we can’t keep our hands off each other again
Stay until together we find a way to brave this rain
Why don’t you stay
Why don’t you stay
Why don’t you stay
For one more day
Hey
It’s gonna be ok

Upside Down

Let’s hang upside down
Pretend the sky’s the ground
And that we can go roll around
That heart-shaped cloud
We’ll forget our day
And everything we hate
And one by one our thoughts will drain
Out of our brainOh là là
The world spins right
My head spins left
I’m out of breath
Oh là life’s a merry-go-round
Let’s tune it all out
Finally
I found a remedy
You, me and our tendency
To hang off trees
Maybe we’ll get on
With the worms and bees
Maybe I’ll finish that old song
About world peace
Oh là là
The world spins right
My head spins left
I’m out of breath
Oh là life’s a merry-go-round
Let’s tune it all out
Let’s hang upside down
In this day and age
We all crave the stage
We all want to win the race
And be the prettiest face
Let’s hang upside down
Pretend that we are hounds
And that we can go sniff around
The Moon’s sad frown
We’ll forget our cravings
And that we have no savings
And that there’s no such thing as wings
On human beings
Oh là là
The world spins right
My head spins left
I’m out of breath
Oh là life’s a merry-go-round
Let’s tune it all out
I love you
And you love me
And that’s all there is right now
So let’s be peas and grow on a tree
And tune the rest out
Let’s hang upside down

Sing A Song

Sing a song
Before the door comes slamming
Let your eyes go big and bright
Until they’re smiling
Sing a song before love breaks you, darling
Sing us all a song
Take your youth and make some stew
For when you’re starving
Make a wish before you sense
What you’re lacking
Sing a song while your horse still rocking
Sing a song to us all
Sing a song before love breaks you, darling
Sing us all a song
I don’t suppose red wine makes you cry
I don’t suppose red roses make you sigh
I don’t suppose goodbyes leave you dry
So don’t be shy
And sing a song while your room still sunny
Sing us all a song
Sing a song while your horse still rocking
Sing a song to us all
Sing a song before love breaks you, darling
Sing us all a song

You, Me & The Moon

Lover reach in my pocket
Grab my keys
Let’s start this rocket
And go fly into the night
We’ll count stars
We’ll circle the moon
We’ll do the things that lovers do
And believe we have a chance
We’ll come out of our shells
And what comes next
Time will tell
It’ll be you, me & the moon
Or we could stop it right here
It’s too big a risk to take
When two hearts are at stake
But we got these keys
And we got all night
We have this rocket we could fly
And the way to the moon
Where everything will be new
You’ll learn me
And I’ll learn you
It’ll be you, me & the moon
Come on, lover, reach in my pocket
Start this rocket
Let’s go fly
It’ll be you, me & the moon

Out Of Reach

Oh, how fast
It’s getting dark again
Summer came and went
The kids left the beach
And the flowers fell off the trees
There’s no one left
But me
I’m always the last one to leave
Always hanging onto a dream
Always looking up at the clouds above
Cause they’re beautifully out of reach
Oh how great
If I could set camp in a place
Where nothing dared to change
If I instead of these dreams
I got a set of wings
Maybe then I’d beat
The first freeze
I’m always the last one to leave
Always hanging onto a dream
Always looking up at the clouds above
Cause they’re beautifully out of reach
Oh these dreams….
What we want and can have
They’re miles apart
So we get in our cars
And these roads fill up with dreamers like me
I’m always the last one to leave
Always hanging onto a dream
Always looking up at the clouds above
Cause they’re beautifully out of reach

I'll Be Home

The show will go on
New flowers will be born
New birds will sing
New love songs from the tree
Shading the room while we sleep
Oh, how i wish this moment would freeze
And your car wouldn’t start
And the wheels wouldn’t turn
And those roads would all stay in Rome
I baked you a cake
You know I’m not good with words
So don’t say goodbye
It doesn’t feel right
We’re still here side by side
Making time for one more kiss
Oh, how i wish this moment would freeze
And your car wouldn’t start
And the wheels wouldn’t turn
And those roads would all stay in Rome
At 10 pm stop the car
And stare at the moon
So will I
Now go fill your eyes
With memories
And when you’re back
I’ll be home

Sunday

All the streets are quiet
It’s Sunday
Painters on the sidewalks
The sun is out
I wish he was here
His arms around me
But everyone I know
Is out of town
I shouldn’t need Sundays to remind me
Alone time feels fine
It frees up your mind
All wrapped up
I’m headed out to the market
My feet glide
My eyes are off the ground
I see tangerines on lemon trees
I see footsteps on the clouds
Guess we’re all trying to figure things out
Today’s a perfect day
To let the outside in
I see question marks on people’s hearts
I see bird nests on their heads
Guess we all have our loose ends
I shouldn’t need Sundays to remind me
Alone time feels fine
It frees up your mind
No matter what today brings
Tomorrow will come
And wake up this town
Streets will hiss, rumble and scream
And dreamers will dream
And wishers will wish
Sunday was every day
