Past Perfect Future Tense (2004)

obsolete

The cellar’s full of wine
you can no longer drink
your head is full of thoughts
you don’t allow yourself to think

The cupboard’s full of canned fruit,
vegetables & meat
Everything is damaged goods,
Like sour grapes gone sweet

The drawer’s full of letters
overdue to be sent
Stamps no longer valid
and words no longer meant

You saved them for a rainy day
You waited for too long
You thought that saving memories
was the thing that made me strong

Obsolete
Like the autumn leaves on the street
They’re obsolete
Like the morning dew beneath your feet

The closet’s bursting at the seams
with clothes you do not wear
You need to get your life fixed
but a part of you don’t care

You’ve done everything so right
but now it seems all wrong
You played so damn hard
That it turned to a song

You saved it for a rainy day
You waited far too long
You thought that having memories
was the thing that made you strong

But the years are filling out
with the chances you don’t take
Your heart is pounding
and you cannot stand the ache

You’re obsolete
Like the autumn leaves on the street
Obsolete
Like the morning dew beneath your feet

all the time

You say something’s got a hold on you
You don’t know what to say or do

You say; you never saw the best of me
You never saw what I could be, did you

And everything you’ve learned is shit
You don’t know what to do with it
Well, don’t be such a Philistine
Let’s eat the food and drink the wine

You wanted my ambition, you wanted my drive
I needed someplace I could rest
I needed somewhere I could hide
All the time

I say: Something’s got a hold on me
I rarely know where I will be

I say; You never see what I can be
You only see what you will see, don’t you

I don’t know what to do or say
It wouldn’t matter anyway

Cuz now we know that love is lost
It came at much too high a cost

I needed your attention, I needed your mind
You wanted someone you could love
You wanted someone by your side
All the time

And everything is too much real
That isn’t how it makes you feel
And now we know that love is lost
It came at much too high a cost

You wanted to ask me, you needed to know
If I just came along for the ride
Or needed someplace I could go
All the time

You never saw the best of me, did you?

past perfect future tense

Tell me a story of how it began
show me the point of departure
There was a road we could have gone down
To avoid our recent disasters

I remember so well what you said to me:
We are who we were always going to be
We were always going to be who we are you
and me

I know the words, they just make no sense
In past perfect future tense

Show me the place where things fell apart
Hand me a map of our actions
Give a clue where about I should start
Recording unholy transactions

I remember so well what you said to me;
We are who we were always going to be
We are always going to be who we are
don’t you see

I know the words,
they just make no sense
In past perfect future tense

I remember so well how you set me free;
We are who we were always going to be
We are always going to be who we are
don’t you see

I hear you now,
And it makes much more sense
In a past perfect future tense

It’s hard to explain,
But it makes much more sense
In past perfect future tense

no one gets me but you

Everybody says I’m too tightly wired
Everyone thinks I’m too high strung
Everyone knows what I should do
but no one gets me

Everyone’s afraid of missing the action
Everybody wants their lives to be touched
Everybody wants to get it together
but no one gets me

Everybody has you over for dinner
but no-one really stays in touch
Everyone knows that less is more
but we all want it too much

Everybody says what’s on their mind
but no-one really thinks it through
Everyone feels they know what I need
but no one gets me but U

Everybody knows the game is rigged
Everyone say it’s a curse
Everyone the asking price
but never what it’s worth

Everyone has too much on their plate
Everyone argues their fate
Everyone knows it’s worth their while
but no one wants to wait

Everybody’s taking it to the streets
but no one brings it home
Everybody needs a helping hand
cuz nobody walks it alone

Everybody plays to win
cuz nobody likes to lose
Everyone knows what I must to do
but no one gets me but U

Every dreamer needs a doer to get things
Done
Every Paul needs a Yoko to be a John

No one gets me
No one gets but you

kryptonite

Words find ways back to bite you
Things you say come to spite you
You can close your eyes if you have to
but life goes go on without you

Easy on the kryptonite
Easy on the black and white
Easy on the kryptonite
There’s no need for us to fight
I will find ways without you

You’ll find new ways to doubt me
That’s how you’ll get on without me
You can keep your guard up if need be
Just remember this when you see me:

Go easy on the kryptonite
Easy on the black and white
Just try to be civilized
No one wants to compromise
Cuz my I’m way to tired to fight you
but I will find ways without you

Well time flies by if we let it
Time is yours don’t you get it?
Don’t you want it?
Say you want it

Friends make sure to remind you
of things you thought were behind you
You can kick and scream all you want to
but this words will come back to haunt you:

Easy on the kryptonite
Easy on the black and white
Just try to be civilized
No one likes to compromise
If you don’t like the way it sounds
Well, bite me

Cuz I will find ways without you
Yes I will find ways without you

nothing here to hold you

Learning to breathe
as walls close in around you
Learning to see
the things that surround you
Once you believed
in every word he sold you
there’s nothing here to hold you

Learning to fly
while things fall down around you
You’re wasting your time
With the people that surround you
Don’t ask me why,
But once you’re on your own
You will soon realize –
It’s true what I told you

Real love is all
It takes to walk away from comfort
Real pain to know;
Nothing scares you now
Real life will show the naked truth
In what I told you:
There’s nothing here to hold you

Learning to hide
from memories you’ve built a life on
They’ll wonder why
the sudden change of mind?
But just passing time
no longer is an option
– you must re-organize,
and feed the fire in your belly

Real love is all
it took to bring you back from sleep
Real pain to know
you are still alive
Real life has shown
the truth in everything I told you
There’s nothing here to hold you

You have come to despise
everyone who adores you
so you wave your goodbyes
to everything that bores you
There’s a whole world outside,
and you know you shouldn’t buy it
but you just have to try it
– cuz there’s nothing here to hold you

Real love was all
it took to raise you from the dead
Real pain to know
you’re still inside your head
Real life is all
– to see the truth in what I told you:
There’s nothing here to hold you.

Learning to fly
A pair of broken wings
but still you’re willing to try
cuz there’s nothing here to hold you

a friend like me

I’d bring you down when things were good
I’d never listen when I should
I’d sit and tend my aching heart
while making sure that we’re apart

I’ll think of you when I’m alone
but never tell on the phone
Forget to show me who you are
Don’t forget it – I’m the star!

Hey, can’t you see
You better believe
You will never find a friend like me

And every time you raise your voice
I’ll be the one who thinks he knows
Exactly what you’re gonna say
And when you do, I’ll walk away

Oh, can’t you see
You better believe
You will never find a friend like me

It doesn’t feel wrong when I miss you
It defines who I am
It doesn’t fell wrong when I kiss you

To kiss someone, to miss someone
can make you feel like you belong somewhere

You will never find a friend like me

little angels

Silently the morning glides
into places where we hide
Suddenly I’m wide awake
from these dreams that I must shake

Little angels on my shoulder
Little angels by my side
And wherever I will be
little angels follow me

You will wake up late on night
losing sleep but that’s alright
Stare into the summer sky
Decisions they can wait awhile

You feel better knowing you will
always be a welcome guest
You feel better, tell you why:
Little angels by your side

Little angels everywhere
Little angels in your hair
Little angels in your bed
Little angels in your head

You feel better knowing all the
the things we said are laid to rest
You feel better knowing this:
There’s no prize for second best

2CU shine

All I wanted was 2cU shine
and to be there when U did
All I wanted was a hand in mine
I had a place where it would fit

I always wondered what was in your head
the way U read my mind
Always wondered what was never said
each and every time

a-ha

In every word we wrote, in every line
there was a desperate note
We had a contract but never signed
I couldn’t get your vote

U saw the sadness in these eyes
that no one ever sees
The bruises hidden here behind the smile
a kind of stiff unease

a-ha

Just when I couldn’t get you out of my mind
you start to back away
I always wondered baby, one more time…
it wouldn’t hurt, would it?

All I wanted was 2cU you shine

———————————————————————————————

you don’t have to change

You
don’t think
you can
be what I want

But hey
you should know this;
You don’t have to change
Don’t change

Your face
is white
and your eyes
they are pale

But hey
it’s alright
You don’t have to change

Everything’s allright
nothing stays the same
It comes and goes in waves
no one is to blame
You don’t have to change

Don’t change

———————————————————————————————

envelop me

Envelop me darling
bring me in
I am too centered on myself
you are in everything

Envelop me sweetheart
bring me home
You live like time is precious
I spend too much alone

Envelop me honey
set me free
Your weakness is a gift
my strength my enemy

Envelop me honey
make me safe
Meet me anywhere
take me any place

Every word is a book unwritten
Every sound is a song unsung
Every moment is a picture taken
Then it’s gone

Envelop me darling
would you please
The days are growing shorter
and with it come unease

Envelop me sweetheart
make me whole
You say I’m innocent
I wouldn’t really know

Envelop me honey
please don’t wait
We’ll go away somewhere
We’ll start some other place

Envelop me honey
don’t let go
Just give me one more chance
Give me one more go

Every word is book unwritten
Every sound is a song unsung
Every moment is a picture taken
Then it’s gone

———————————————————————————————

never sweeter

You were never sweeter
than right before you broke
I was never smarter
than just before I spoke

Nothing ever happens
just the way we plan
All of us unfolding
any way we can

A hand that hits across the face
reads better on the news, but
the hand can strokes you tenderly
can leave a bigger bruise
and nothing I can say now
will be of any use

You were never sweeter
than right before you broke
I was never smarter
than just before I spoke

perfect circle

Some lives form a perfect circle
Some take shapes you can’t predict
If everything seems cut and dried
Then you don’t know the half of it

Some people read like open books
Some will take a second glance
Some lives have a sense of purpose
Some seen ruled by circumstance

Some lives form a perfect circle
Some take shapes you can’t predict
If everything seems cut and dried
Well, you don’t know the half of it

Some settle for what they get
Some are never satisfied
You see things in black and white
And all I see is the color of your eyes.
