Song lyrics

  • Oh I am what I am
    I'll do what I want
    But I can't hide
    I won't go
    I won't sleep
    I can't breathe
    Until you're resting here with me
    I won't leave
    I can't hide
    I cannot be
    Until you're resting here with me.
  • If you were a king up there on your throne
    would you be wise enough to let me go?
    For this queen you think you own
    Wants to be a hunter again
    wants to see the world alone again
    to take a chance on life again
    so let me go.
  • My tea's gone cold, I'm wondering why I got out of bed at all
    the morning rain clouds up my window and I can't see at all
    And even if I could it'd all be grey, but your picture on my wall
    it reminds me that it's not so bad
    it's not so bad
  • If you gave me just a coin for every time we say goodbye
    Well I'd be rich beyond my dreams, I'm sorry for my weary life
    I know I'm not perfect but I can smile
    and I hope that you see this heart behind my tired eyes.
    • I'm No Angel
  • Why don't I watch the ocean?
    My lover's gone.
    No earthly ships will ever bring him home again
    bring him home again...
    • My Lovers Gone
  • It's all right to make mistakes, you're only human
    Inside everybody's hiding something.
    • Slide
  • And the last words I heard him say were
    I shall return for you my love on Christmas Day...
    • Christmas Day
  • I will go down with this ship
    And I won't put my hands up and surrender
    There will be no white flag above my door
    I'm in love and always will be.
  • When you're stoned, baby, I am drunk.
    And we make love, it seems a little desolate
    It's hard sometimes not to look away
    And think what's the point when I'm having to hold this fire down
    I think I'll explode if I can't feel this freely now. When your stalled baby take me home.
  • I haven't ever really found a place that I call home
    I never stick around quite long enough to make it
    I apologize that once again I'm not in love
    But it's not as if I mind
    that your heart ain't exactly breaking.
  • If you're cold I'll keep you warm
    If you're low just hold on
    Cause I will be your safety
    Oh don't leave home.
  • I've still got sand in my shoes
    And I can't shake the thought of you
    I should get on, forget you
    Why, why would I want to
    I know we said goodbye
    Anything else would've been confused but I wanna see you again.
  • And we danced, and we drank
    And I've seen something you probably never got the chance to see
    Don't worry, Mary
    Cause I'm taking care of Danny
    And he's taking care of me
    • Mary's In India
  • Not sad because you lost me
    But sad because you thought it was cool to be sad
    • See You When You're 40
