LYRICS

Stay (Faraway, So Close)

Green light, Seven Eleven
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
You don't smoke, don't even want to
Hey now, check your change
Dressed up like a car crash
Your wheels are turning but you're upside down
You say when he hits you, you don't mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
Hey now, is that what it is

Red lights, gray morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who's around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip synch to the talk shows

And if you look, you look through me
And when you talk, you talk at me
And when I touch you, you don't feel a thing

If I could stay
Then the night would give you up
Stay, and the day would keep its trust
Stay, and the night would be enough

Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio
With satellite television
You can go anywhere
Miami, New Orleans, London
Belfast and Berlin

And if you listen I can't call
And if you jump, you just might fall
And if you shout, I'll only hear you

If I could stay
Then the night would give you up
Stay, then the day would keep its trust
Stay, with the demons you drowned
Stay, with the spirit I found
Stay, and the night would be enough

Three o'clock in the morning
It's quiet and there's no one around
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel runs to ground
Just the bang, and the clatter
As an angel, runs the ground
Just the bang, and the clatter
As an angel, hits the ground

I've Got You Under My Skin

I have got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me

So deep in my heart
You're nearly a part of me
I've got you under my skin

I have tried so not to give in
I have said to myself this affair
Never gonna go so well

But why should I try to resist
When baby I know so well
That I've got you under my skin

I would sacrifice anything
Come what might
For the sake of holding you near
In spite of a warning voice
That comes in the night
It repeats and it shouts in my ear

Don't you know blue eyes
You never can win
Use your mentality
Wake up to reality

But each time I do
Just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
'cause I've got you under my skin

I'd sacrifice anything
Come what might
For the sake of having you near
In spite of a warning voice
That comes in the night
It repeats and it shouts in my ear
Don't you know you old fool
You never can win
Use your mentality
Wake up to reality
But each time that I do
Just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
'cause I've got you under my skin
And I love you
when you're
under my skin


Lemon (Perfecto Mix)

Alright

Lemon
See through in the sunlight
She wore lemon
But never in the daylight
She's gonna make you cry
She's gonna make you whisper and moan
And when you're dry
She draws her water from the stone

And I feel
Like I'm slowly, slowly, slowly slipping under
And I feel
Like I'm holding onto nothing

She wore lemon
To colour in the cold grey night
She had heaven
And she held on so tight

A man makes a picture
A moving picture
Through the light projected
He can see himself up close
A man captures colour
A man likes to stare
He turns his money into light
To look for her

And I feel like I'm drifting, drifting, drifting from the shore
And I feel
Like I'm swimming out to her

Midnight is where the day begins
A man builds a city
With banks and cathedrals
A man melts the sand so he can
See the world outside
A man makes a car
And builds roads to run them on
A man dreams of leaving
But he always stays behind
And these are the days
When our work has come asunder
And these are the days
When we look for something other

Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins
Midnight is where the day begins

And these are the days
When our work has come asunder
And these are the days
When we look to each other

Slow Dancing

My love is cruel as the night
She steals the sun and shuts out the light
All of my colours they turn to blue
Win or lose

She does it slow dancing
Slow dancing
She does it slow dancing
All night long

Scarlet eyes and a see-through heart
She saw me coming right from the start
She picked me up but had me down on my knees
Just a' begging her begging her please

Take me slow dancing
Slow dancing
She took me slow dancing
All night long

And I don't know why a man
Search for himself in his lover's eyes
No I don't know why a man
Sees the truth but needs the lies

My love is restless as the wind
She moves like a shadow across my skin
She left with my conscience
I don't want it back
It just gets in the way

If you wanna go slow dancing
Slow dancing
She took me slow dancing
All night long

Slow dancing
Slow dancing
Slow


Bullet The Blue Sky (Live)

Love, love, love, love

In the howling wind comes a stinging rain
See it driving nails
Into the souls on the tree of pain
From the firefly, the red orange glow
I see the face of fear
Running scared in the valley below
Bullet the blue sky, bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue, bullet the blue

In the locust wind comes a rattle and hum
Jacob wrestled the angel
The angel was overcome
You plant a demon seed
You raise a flower of fire
See them burning crosses
See the flames higher and higher

Bullet the blue sky, bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue, bullet the blue

Must we let it happen again

This guy comes up to me
His face red like a rose on a thorn bush
Like all the colours of a royal flush
And he's peeling off those dollar bills
Slapping them down
Slapping them down

One hundred, two hundred, three hundred, four
And I can see those fighter planes
And I can see those fighter planes

Across the mud huts where the children sleep
Through the alleys of a quiet city street
You take the staircase to the first floor
Turn the key to Sarajevo's door

As a man breathes into a saxophone
And through the walls you hear the city groan
As a man breathes into a saxophone, saxophone
And through the walls we hear the city moan, moan
Moan, moan, moan

Outside is America, America
And we run
And we run
And we run
Into the arms of America

Love Is Blindness (Live)

Love is blindness
I don't wanna see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
All my love
Blindness

In a parked car
In a crowded street
You see your love
Made complete
Thread is ripping
The knot is slipping
Love is blindness

Love is clockworks
And cold steel
Fingers to numb to feel
Squeeze the handle
Blow out of the candle
Love is blindness

Love is blindness
I don't wanna see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Take my heart is
Blindness

A little death
Without mourning
No call
And no warning
Baby, a dangerous idea
That almost makes sense
Love is drowning
In a deep well
All the secrets
And no one to tell
Take the money
Honey it's
Blindness

Love is blindness
I don't wanna see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Take my heart it's
Blindness

Love is blindness
I don't wanna see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Take my heart it's
Blindness

Goodnight
