"If Ever I Stray"

"If Ever I Stray"



Forgive me someone, for I have sinned
And I know not where I should begin
Some days it feels like you just can't win
No matter what you do or say.

Things didn't kill me but I don't feel stronger
Life is short but it feels much longer
You've lost that drive, you've lost that hunger
To pull yourself through the day.

But if ever I stray from the path I follow
Take me down to the English Channel
Throw me in where the water is shallow
And then drag me on back to shore!

'Cos love is free and life is cheap
As long as I've got me a place to sleep
Clothes on my back and some food to eat
I can't ask for anything more

Come on everybody sing it 1, 2, 3, 4

We've all got secrets that we hold inside
The worst little things that we try and defy
The worst one of all that you never can hide
Is that you're never quite as strong as you sound

So I'm sorry baby, for the times I've hurt you
Sorry friends, for the times I desert you
Most days it feels like I don't deserve you
No wonder that you're all still around

But if ever I stray from the path I follow
Take me down to the English Channel
Throw me in where the water is shallow
And then drag me on back to shore!

'Cos love is free and life is cheap
As long as I've got me a place to sleep
Clothes on my back and some food to eat
I can't ask for anything more

Come on everybody sing it 1, 2, 3, 4

Come on and join me in the water
Swim for hope
Sometimes it's hard to remember
I couldn't do this on my own

If ever I stray from the path I follow
Take me down to the English Channel
Throw me in where the water is shallow
And then drag me on back to shore!

'Cos love is free and life is cheap
As long as I've got me a place to sleep
Clothes on my back and some food to eat
I can't ask for anything more

I can't ask for anything more

The path I chose isn't straight and narrow
It wanders 'round like a drunken fellow
Some days it's hard for me to follow
But if you've got my back I'll go on.
If you've got my back I'll go on.

"Imperfect Tense"

"Imperfect Tense"



Naked and retched and retching on a hotel bathroom floor,
Somewhere in the City
Three days no sleeping, not eating, not feeling good anymore
Drenched in sweat and self-pity now, it's not a pretty sight

What to say in my defense, I was imperfect tense
Used to have such balance, but I don't know where it went
So won't you be my present sense

Breaking, I'm shaking, it's taking a long long time
To come down off this murderous medication
Trying to remember, my reasons for running myself
into the ground with such dedication

What to say in my defense, I was imperfect tense
Used to have such balance, but I don't know where it went
So won't you be my present sense, sense

Cos it's not meant to be
I am lost at sea
So mermaids sing to me
Of the better times and the things that can be
Like the diamonds in the Mediterranean sea
Or the beatings and sleeping and times that I took
And of washing the drink and the drugs from my blood
And I've nothing to say in my defense
I'm far from perfect I'm still tense
They say that love can change you once
Please say that love can change me once
Come on change me

"Isabel"

"Isabel"



So now the years are rolling by,
and it’s not long since you and I could have been train drivers and astronauts.
And now we’re stuck in furnished ruts,
but yet the thing that really cuts is that we can’t remember how we got caught.
Filtered air, computer screens, muffled sighs and might-have-beens
count your blessings, then breathe, and count to ten.
And though it doesn’t often show, we are scared
because we know our forefathers were farmers and fishermen.
And so the world has changed, worse or better’s hard to tell,
but my hope remains within the arms of Isabel.
So now our calloused hands once told a story honest
as it’s old of sowing seeds and setting sail.
But now our hands are soft and weak
and working seven days a week at these salvation schemes that are bound to fail.
And I’ll admit that I am scared of what I don’t understand.
But darling, if you’re there, gentle voice and soothing hands,
to quiet my despair, to shore up all my plans, darling, if you’re there...
And so the world has changed, and I must change as well.
The machines we’ve made will damn us into hell.
And the time will come when all must save themselves.
I will save my soul in the arms of Isabel.

"Jet Lag"

"Jet Lag"



I've heard it said the trick
Is to set your watch when you hit the plane
That way you can trick
The workings of a tired brain
But sometimes I feel sick
Sometimes I just feel so drained
And cut down to the quick
Longing for that voice again
On the phone
You always ask if I'm OK
But it's not the same as being happy

I travelled 40,000 miles last year
And I'm working on the same again
I fell for 15 different girls
And nearly lost all of my friends
Well I am jet set, jet lag, jaded
You're always 16 hours ahead
Quietly reminding me how I used to be

Airports make me sad
I'm sure they shouldn't all be the same
But they're just landing pads
Boring tourist shopping chains
I remember times we had
Drinking while we wait for your plane
Feeling kinda bad
Wondering which one of us has changed
Cos we used to be slick
Subtle young hips, romantic young kissable lips
Unbearably sharp, unbreakable heart
With wide eyes and faith
That life could never pull apart if we were OK
But distance kills the best of intentions
And never intended it to be this way

I travelled 40,000 miles last year
And I'm working on the same again
I fell for 15 different girls
And nearly lost all of my friends
Oh I am jet set, jet lag, jaded
You're always 16 hours ahead
Quietly reminding me how I used to be
I'm trying to remember how I used to be
Used to be slick

"Josephine"

"Josephine"



I heard the name Josephine,
It came to me in a dream.
And I don't usually set too much store by the things
These things might mean.
But it was spoken with seriousness,
More of a whisper than a scream.
So now I'm waiting on some Josephine
To show herself to me.

I could have been anyone I imagined I could be;
I just needed somebody to wake me from my sleep.
I could have been Napoleon, could have been Beethoven,
Could have been anyone but uncomfortable me.
So come on now Josephine, show yourself to me.

Come on now Josephine,
Give me what I need.
I don't like to be needy but needs must,
I can't stand being the person that I've been.
I'm an impending car crash,
And you're the first one on the scene.
I'm a defeated commander, I'm a half-deaf composer,
I'm a strange name whispered in a dream.

I could have been anyone I imagined I could be;
I just needed somebody to wake me from my sleep.
I could have been Napoleon, could have been Beethoven,
Could have been anyone but uncomfortable me.
So come on now Josephine, show yourself to me.

Come on now Josephine, let's pretend it's Halloween.
You come as a car crash, I'll go as James Dean.
I'm Napoleon on Elba, and you're a hundred days in 1815.
I wrote all of these letters to my immortal beloved,
And you're the only one who's ever going to know what they mean.

Come on now Josephine, wake me from my sleep.
I could have been anyone, but I ended up being me.
I could have been wide awake, could have been what you need,
I wish that I was anyone except for just me.
So come on now Josephine, show yourself to me.

"Journey Of The Magi"

"Journey Of The Magi"



Moses was old, a chill in his bones.
Falling apart, he knew in his heart that his time had come.
As he lay in his tent in the hot desert sands,
he smiled at how he would never see his promised land.
He sang "I could have lived and died an Egyptian prince,
I could have played safe,
but in the end the journey's brought joys that outweigh the pain."
Odysseus sat tired and alone.
He'd always held out against all the doubts that he would come home.
But now he was here, his soul felt estranged.
His wife and his dog, his son and his Gods, everything changed.
He sang "I could have stayed and ruled as an Ithican prince,
I could've played safe.
But in the end the journey's brought joys that outweigh the pain."
Balthazar rode for seven long years, eastwards and far,
he followed his star, and it brought him here.
To a stable in ruins in some backwater town,
to a virgin defiled, no king but a child, too small for a crown.
He sang "I could have lived with my Gods as a Persian prince,
I could've played safe,
but in the end the journey's brought joys that outweigh the pain."
Paupers and kings, princes and thieves,
singers of songs, righters of wrongs, be what you believe.
So saddle your horse and shoulder your load,
burst at the seams, be what you dream, and take to the road.

"Keira"
(originally by Tony Sly)



Lay you down tonight
Under butterflies
Put my headphones on
I'll see you at the dawn

Life for you is a better view
So simple and perfectly sane
If I pretend that you have a god
I know you'll be saved

Hey, hey

Build a wall for you
So no one can get through
We'll sleep away the day
I'm gone when you awake

Maybe I'm no good at this
But here's the one thing that I know
Think of this as a lullaby
To listen when I go

No, no
No, no
No, no
No, no

"Last Christmas"
(originally by Wham!)



Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby, do you recognize me?
Well, it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me

I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying 'I love you,' I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you and your soul of ice
My god, I thought you were someone to rely on
Me, I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore him apart
Ooh hoo, now I've found a real love
You'll never fool me again

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

I'll give it to someone special
I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special

"Least Of All Young Caroline"

"Least Of All Young Caroline"



Amber slipped away last night
Gin-soaked in the hospital
And with everything we went through with that last year
That is a serious kick in the balls
None of us need this
Least of all young Caroline
Child, I'd be lying if I told you I thought that everything would be fine

Caroline I know things are desperate
Things will get better in the end
Because every step you take forward is another step you'll never have to take again

You know her parents built her up
But then they let her fall aside
Now she has her scars on her legs that she won't explain
From when she disappeared that night
Said she's not a little girl any more
Her hands, they don't need holding much
But the child that I've known since the day she was born is always going to need some human touch

Caroline I know things are desperate
Things will get better in the end
And every step you take forward is another step you'll never have to take again
And every step you take forward is another step you'll never have to take again

It tears me apart
To remember your love
It tears me in half
To remember your love

Caroline I know things are desperate
Things will get better in the end
But every step you take forward is another step you'll never have to take again
But every step you take forward is another step you'll never have to take again
Every step you take forward is another step you never have to take again
Every step you take forward is another step you never have to take again
Every step you take forward is another step you never have to take again

"Linoleum"
(originally by NOFX)



Possessions never meant anything to me
I'm not crazy
Well that's not true, I've got a bed, and a guitar
And a dog named Bob who pisses on my floor
That's right, I've got a floor
So what, so what, so what?
I've got pockets full of kleenex and lint and holes
Where everything important to me
Just seems to fall right down my leg
And on to the floor
My closest friend linoleum
Linoleum
Supports my head, gives me something to believe
That's me on the beachside combing the sand
Metal meter in my hand
Sporting a pocket full of change
That's me on the street with a violin under my chin
Playing with a grin, singing gibberish
That's me on the back of the bus
That's me in the cell
That's me inside your head That's me inside your head
That's me inside your head
