// Every Corner Of The Room – Lyrics

NO WONDER

Before I begin let me start by saying
you were never above me
it’s not like you can’t help yourself complaining
that you wanted to shove me

you’re so young
no wonder
you’re so far down…
right
It used to kill me to think about it
the moment it’s over
and now that I still have to live without it
it’s the reason that drove her

you’re so young
no wonder
you’re so far down…
right

You fall down like rats
you slow down like that
you fall down like rats
you’re so young

CAVE IN

I feel safer
when I’m alone
skin of paper
and hollow bone
before something
can get to me
I’ll get inside there
and fall asleep

If I kept throwing things around me
would it seem like something’s wrong
and I can’t promise I won’t do that
from now on

Oh, aspirin
and gasoline
how my head throbs
like a drowning dream
like four stories
caving in
like a sunblind car crash
pulling in

If I kept throwing things around me
would it seem like something’s wrong
and I can’t promise I won’t do that
from now on

But somehow I can feel my way to the surface
can’t wait to find my wings
I’ve got the chance to take flight

If I kept throwing things around me
would it seem like something’s wrong
and I can’t promise I won’t do that
from now on

BEAUTIFUL SONG

I feel alright but I don’t think you’ll get it
hanging on far too long
I can’t lie and I know I’ll regret it
I’ll have to depend on my beautiful song

Holding on to your love like a magnet
turn around and you know that it’s gone
time flies when you’re trying to drag it
pull me along, my beautiful song

pull away

I’m hell bound
I can feel it begininning
the time is right for it all to go wrong
I hope it comes as soon as I’m willing
to scribble the words of my beautiful song

SLOWBERRY

If you’re around
I’ll show you the sweetest sound
I’ve frozen these chords and melodies
I have found

But July comes quickly
in this cold December town

I forget for a while
the beauty within this place
but outside
an ocean I swallow to kill the taste
of those ancient hearts beating
and the memory of your face

and there it goes
in your old clothes
of course it shows
your naked cold soul

Save me
I know you well
I could make your brown eyes swell
you cried before today
Angry
oh, you must know
everywhere my fingers go
you lied before today
now lie the other way

and there it goes
in your old clothes
of course it shows
your naked cold soul

TWO WONDERFUL STARS

Your pretty face
I see it all over this place
I see it in everything
in every dimension

I can tell
although I might feel like hell
I feel something just as well
I thought I should mention

That we were gonna be
two wonderful stars
if nothing else mattered
and I’d sell both my hands
to wake up in that sky

Creeping slow
from under the boards below
someplace I never go
I’m never that daring

Safe and sound
twisting your words around
and burning the cardboard crown
I last saw you wearing

That we were gonna be
two wonderful stars
if nothing else mattered
and I’d sell both my hands
to wake up in that sky

That we were gonna be
two wonderful stars
if nothing else mattered
and I’d sell both my hands
to wake up in that sky

CHEMICAL

I could be the air you’re breathing
I could be invisible
I could melt the world around you
I could be a chemical

I become all the colors
I could be inside your eyes
I become the noise around you
I could bring the sound to life

I could have all the answers
everything there is to know
I could have all the answers
but I am nothing at all

MARIGOLD GIRL

Crazy convinced and lured
could it be my head
I’m sure
I’ll find out where your flowers grow
couldn’t help but want to know

and to kiss someone
before the sun is gone
kiss someone
while you’re still young

Speaking words I can’t afford
could it be my fault
I’m bored
be my marigold girl
I’m caught in your candy
cast in pearl

kiss someone
before the sun is gone
kiss someone
while you’re still young

DIVER

I’ve been waiting for the sad part
when your heart is broken
your words stolen like a moment
you’re silently choking

I could arrive in a moment
but I do not intend
to be a shoulder to cry on
or your superman again

You can’t stop yourself from bleeding
when your heart
is pounding
you go deeper than a diver
much too far
you’re drowning

Everyone thinks you’re a good girl
but they don’t understand
you’re wearing the clothes of a princess
but you’re not like them

All the proper words
and all the proper meanings
are the part of her that needs to be deceiving

I could arrive in a moment
but I do not intend
to be a shoulder to cry on
or your superman again

FEATHER

you left along with the sun
and my evidence
of the feeling is gone
but in my defense
you were one step behind me
and I can’t look back

and that’s my embarassing fact

there’s no gas in the car
and nowhere to go
I can’t stay where you are
it’s nowhere I know
(I know) you’ll have trouble
at least you won’t take all the blame

Don’t feather the flame

There’s no reason to learn
from our mistakes
you just smoulder and burn
whatever it takes
to keep your heart asleep
while the bitterness wakes.

EVERY CORNER OF THE ROOM

My morning brings the sun
but little does she know
the day would have begun anyway

And she sees the moon
in every corner of the room

My darkness brings the stars
but little does she know
the night is never far anyway

And she sees the moon
in every corner of the room
and says it’s coming soon
to every corner of the room

NOT VERY LONG

I feel young
not very long
I could fall down and I’d be done
but before I’m what I’ll become

I’ll take the slow and painless approach
to help me swallow the days as I get older

It’s a phase like a merry-go
around this place i’m a miracle

and with my own eyes
I want to see them come
far below
my favorite vision

and as I find the wonders of tomorrow
I’ll collect a pocketful of memories
and take them home

MOTORCYCLE BABY

Motorcycle baby
you’re a gilded lily
you’re much harder on the inside
and I watch you floating
taking pictures of me
you’re much deeper than me inside

She was soft and silver
and I waited for her
and I wake up on the inside
and I can’t remember
if I said that to her
she’s much deeper than me inside

ANCHOR

No ocean left to drown you
No anchor tied to pull you
and soon enough
it’s letting up
in full view
The sun will shine
and open sky of blue

There’s a color in the sky
making me cry
and I’ll discover before I die
what makes the birds fly

So quiet now
the air still
and fallen pictures breaking my will
and soon enough
it’s letting up
in full view
The sun will shine
and open sky of blue

There’s a color in the sky
making me cry
and I’ll discover before I die
what makes the birds fly

No shows booked at the moment.
