SMALL LOADS Lyrics

October 5, 2009

I will have my little home

With my own washing machine

And I will wash in just small loads

Until everything is clean

I will plant a window box

I’ll have the neighbours round

Once I have got a door that locks

And I can hold my ground

And I’ll never have to think of you

So probably I will

Just light a fire and listen to

The water as it fills

No I’ll never have to think of you

It’ll be much simpler then

Just light a fire and listen to

The spin cycle end

Untidy LYRICS

September 1, 2009

Gently does it, born to be mild

I’ve been raising limbo

Ever since I was a child

Better safe than sorry, better just make sure

But better’s getting harder to endure

I won’t go quietly, I’ll make a fuss

I’ll be untidy for the two of us

I’ll be trouble, I won’t play ball

I’ll make all the big mistakes

That make it all worthwhile

Easy, easy, it’s so easy to talk

When you’re bulletproof and beautiful

You run before you walk

You do whatever pleases you

I do what I ought

But I’ve been biding my time

Gathering my thoughts

I’ll be messy, I won’t be proud

I won’t stop searching

Until I’ve found us both out

I’ll shout “action”, I won’t shout “cut”

And I won’t accept a single “if” or “but”

From anyone but

You’re so scared of consequences

But I still love the crime

To act without good reason

To cut across the rhyme

So forget your consequences

We’re only here one time

Let’s go squeezing out our meanings

Squeezing out our feelings

And keeping our untidness alive

Keeping our untidiness alive

Keeping our untidiness alive

Unreasonable Sex LYRICS

September 1, 2009

I want to have me some unreasonable sex

I want to work my way through an acre of latex

I want to have me some unreasonable sex with you

Or anybody else who cares to

It’s so hard

Lying alone on your bed and doing nothing

It’s so hard

When you’re not getting that dirty sweaty hot thing

It’s so hard

Wishing and praying for love to bring you something

It’s too hard to bear

I want it now

I want it here

I want to have me some unreasonable sex

I want to spend my love like I hold a gold AMEX

I want to have me some unreasonable sex with you

Or anybody else who cares to

It’s so long

Since I lay down with someone good and ready

It’s so long

Since my body touched a whole other body

It’s so long

to be strong and sure and pure and rock-steady

It’s too long to wait

It’s you

It’s me

It’s now

It’s fate

I want to have me some unreasonable sex

I want to re-arrange the laws of cause and effect

I want to have me some unreasonable sex with you

Or the Lord knows what I will do

The Lord knows

The Lord knows

The Lord knows

The Lord knows

The Lord knows I’m old enough to be a reasonable man

And I’ve been doing, and I’ve been trying, and I’ve been being the best I can

But there’s a war going on inside me between testosterone and soul

And today I’ve got to say that it’s the bad guys got control

I want to have me some unreasonable sex

I want to scrub that loving muscle till it reflects

I want to have me some unreasonable sex with you

I do I do I do I do

I want it

You’ve got it

You’ve got it

And I want it

I want it

You’ve got it

Please give it to me

Give it to me

Give it to me

Give it to me

Save Pluto LYRICS

September 1, 2009

Why can’t more of Turkey be in Europe if it wants to be?

Why can’t I stay up as late as you when you’re more tired than me?

And when I die will I get wings to fly?

Save Pluto

It’s so much more beautiful

Than all those other bigger planets

Please don’t grow

Although I know you must

But just don’t lose your happy stance

God’s greatest gift to me – to see this world through your new eyes

My fearful prayer for you – that fear will never trump surprise

And you won’t die

And you’ll still have wings to fly

Save Pluto

It’s so much more beautiful

Than all those other bigger planets

Please don’t grow

Although I know you must

But just don’t lose your happy stance

There’s no mystery outer space could hold as inexplicable

As the galaxy of hope and wonder that you’ve made me feel

And when I die

You will be my wings to fly

Save Pluto

It’s so much more beautiful

Than all those other bigger planets

Please don’t grow

Although I know you must

But just don’t lose your happy stance

Save Pluto

Save Pluto

Infrastructure LYRICS

September 1, 2009

Piece by piece the scaffolding falls from

The fresh stone

And who truly knows if what they’ve built can

Truly stand alone

But like it or not

You’ll see someday

In the hardest way

All that you’ve got

It’s not like buckeroo, one thing too much

And you explode

It’s more like Jenga – just the last piece holding

The load

Happens to be gone

And your plan

Just simply

Can’t go on

You never doubt your

Infrastructure

Till you’re without your

Infrastructure

And it’s all about your

Infrastructure

Pray for structure

Hold your structure

Guard your structure

Love your structure

I’ve Lost Your Way LYRICS

September 1, 2009

Two spades for my hands

Two stones for your eyes

I’m speaking ancient Greek

You’re turning to disguise

That you’re playing now

In somebody else’s game

You’re dancing now

Round somebody else’s flame

I’ve lost your way

You’ve found your new road

And you’re not turning back

Re-writing your story

In code that I can’t crack

I’m choosing my words

But I’m choosing wrong

I’m standing now

Just where I don’t belong

I’ve lost your way

The way you have

The way you hold

The way you play

The way you fold

The way you hurt

The way you heal

The way you

Reinvent your wheel

The way you underestimate

Then hesitate, then meet your fate

The way you trust

In fantasy

The way that you

Believed in me

I’ve lost your way

Hold On To Your Soul LYRICS

September 1, 2009

You have everything that you need

No-one has ever been who you can be

Such a pretty voice to use

Such a precious choice to choose

You don’t know what you’ve got to lose

Hold on to the vows you can’t keep

Hold on to the tears you won’t weep

Hold on to your thinking for two

Hold on baby to my hold on you

Hold on to your faiths and your fears

Hold on to your own strange ideas

Hold On To Your Soul

Light fades.  Doubt invades.

Certainty dies

Yet out there

Through the cold cold night air

Something beautiful still flies

It’s your hook just looking for its song

It’s your missing piece

Just looking to belong

You think you’re weak

But you are wrong

You are strong

Hold on to your scars and your cuts

Hold on to the ache in your guts

Hold on to the people who care

Hold on to the doubts you all share

Hold on to the joke they don’t get

Hold on though everyone else forgets

Hold on to your soul

If you want to reach out wide

You’ve got to reach inside

You’ve got to find it

You’ve got to mind it

You’ve got to hold it

Tight

Hold on

Hold on

Hold on

Hold on

Hold on to your soul

Hold on to your soul

Everything’s Wrong LYRICS

September 1, 2009

There was a time

When everything was so right

My present was picture perfect

My future was bright

But then one day all those feelings

I’d always felt so strongly

Suddenly just didn’t feel so strong

Everything’s wrong,

Everything’s wrong

Nothing lasts

Nothing holds fast

Nothing belongs

Everything’s wrong

Everything’s wrong

And I’m just holding

Holding, barely holding on

Thought I was a master

Of the music of life

My melodies swung so sweetly

My rhythms so tight

So how come I just my one and only hit

With my very worst song?

Everything’s wrong

Everything’s wrong

My will to win, my discipline

All just upped and gone

Everything’s wrong

Everything’s wrong

And I’m just holding, holding

holding on by my fingertips

How could those truths that were

So crystal clear

So suddenly all disappear?

Where did I go wrong?

Everything’s wrong

Everything’s wrong

My spirit’s so weak

My heart is so bleak

My face is so long

Everything’s wrong

Everything’s wrong

And I’m just holding

Holding, holding on

By my fingertips

Donnybrook LYRICS

September 1, 2009

Eglinton Road, always Autumn

Bonfires fight with the wet leaves

Then fog and cigarettes and gum­

Butterflies fast for evening

The bar in Longs three deep in ghosts

Those who’ve gone,

Those who’ve gone to seed

And somewhere there, newly afloat

Trying to look old, there’s me

And there’s you

Named for a fair, Then for a fight

Now just a chi-chi shop

That stays open half the night

But never troubles the cops

Church alter made of marzipan

Outside the obelisk proclaims

Someone unknown even back then

Cars fret for lights to change

Then they’re gone

I hold the key

The key holds me

I hold the key

The key holds me

Christmas In The City (Orla’s Song) LYRICS

September 1, 2009

The wet streets thick with heels,

Petrol, perfume, tangerines

And arrogant against the rain winked

Fairy lights of red and green

Past office parties I fought to

Catch you before you caught your train

Back to your country home; I knew

If you left town now

We’d not touch again

Orla – let’s not go there

Orla – let’s stay here

Spend Christmas in the city

Let’s just give it one more year

I know we swore by now

We’d have our own tree

And someone to play Santa for

And I know the fault lies with me

Orla – let’s not go there

Orla – let’s stay here

Spend Christmas in the city

Let’s just disappear together

These streets are blind

And these streets are kind

And these streets don’t mind

what’s behind us

These streets won’t blame us

These streets will claim us

They’ll hide us where

No-one can find us

No snow ever lay so

Bright and crisp and even

As how you looked at me to say

Love, but not in love, so leaving

Orla – let’s not go there

Orla – let’s stay here

Spend Christmas in our city

Let’s just disappear
