Lyrics

Let's Go to Bed
03:34
let me take your hand
i'm shaking like milk
turning
turning blue
all over the windows and the floors
fires outside in the sky
look as perfect as cats
the two of us together again
but it's just the same
a stupid game

but i don't care if you don't
and i don't feel if you don't
and i don't want it if you don't
and i won't say it
if you don't say it first

you think you're tired now
but wait until three...
laughing at the christmas lights
you remember
from december

all of this then back again
another girl
another name
stay alive but stay the same
it's just the same
a stupid game

but i don't care if you don't
and i don't feel if you don't
and i don't want it if you don't
and i won't play it
if you don't play it first

you can't even see now
so you ask me the way
you wonder if it's real
because it couldn't be rain...
through the right doorway
and into the white room
it used to be the dust that would lay here
when i came here alone

but i don't care if you don't
and i don't feel if you don't
and i don't want it if you don't
and i won't say it
if you don't say it first

doo doo doo doo
let's go to bed!
doo doo doo doo
let's go to bed!
The Dream
03:12
you're too far away
too far away to touch
and this mother's love inside me
hurts too much
prettily waving
playing on the sand
dreaming of everything
dancing
dancing in our hands
dancing
dancing

dizzy dizzy dizzy
as i speak
like a tumbling cat
i watch in fascination
like a vampire bat
don't do it don't do it
don't do it don't do it
don't give it away
we'll use it up tomorrow
if we don't use it today

rest your head
oh! just put it outside
all wrapped up in ribbons
the night
the dream
the time love died

we pushed it in our mouths
pushed it deep inside
all wrapped up in ribbons
the night
the dream
the time
love died
Just One Kiss
04:09
remember the time that you rained all night
the queen of siam in my arms
remember the time that the islands sank
but nobody opened their eyes

remember that time that the trees fell down
the wood crashing through the wall
remember the sound that could wake the dead
but nobody woke up at all

somebody died for this
somebody died for just one kiss

remember the time that the sky went black
we waited alone on the sands
remember the taste of the raging sea
but nobody held out their hands

somebody died for this
somebody died
for just one kiss

just one kiss
just one kiss
The Upstairs Room
03:30
i love it all
these games we play
i close my eyes
you run away
i'm sure i asked you to stay
but now you're gone

and so i feel the grey
pulse in my head
i turn off the lights and crawl into bed
i try to think of sunshine
but my body goes wet
with the first crash of thunder...

i don't think i can know
anyone but you dear
that's for sure!

when it gets to four
it's my turn to go
oh the kiss!
so alcoholic and slow
arranging me for saturday
i thought you would know
that i always sleep alone...

i don't think i can know
anyone but you
dear
that's for sure!

the upstairs room is cool and bright
we can go up there in summer
and dance all night...

your sister started talking at a minute after ten
so everyone jumped up
and then fell over again
in april you can join them
and stare at me
at the ghost from your past...
The Walk
03:30
Also available on:
i called you after midnight
then ran until i burst
i passed the howling woman
and stood outside your door

we walked around a lake
and woke up in the rain
and everyone turned over
troubled in their dreams again

visiting time is over
and so we walk away
and both play dead then cry out loud
why we always cry this way?

i kissed you in the water
and made your dry lips sing
i saw you look
like a japanese baby
in an instant i remembered everything...

i called you after midnight
then ran until my heart burst
i passed the howling woman
and stood outside your door

i kissed you in the water
and made your dry lips sing
i saw you look
like a japanese baby
in an instant i remembered everything...
Speak My Language
02:40
it was only yesterday
waving arms across the street
your white face left me blue...
how can i say all the things
i have to say to you?
oh! all the people here
all look the same...
the little time i spend with you
we drink each other dry

mammnnarghaassstmmetc!
speak my language!

it was only yesterday
my eyes touched yours across the street
we cut the words
and waved goodbye
and dropped off the edge of the world

mammnnarghaassstmmetc!
speak my language!
Lament
04:20
today there was a tragedy
underneath the bridge
a man lamented
cold and blue
into La Ment
the sky coloured perfect
as the man slipped away
waving with a last vanilla smile
somewhere at a table
two drowned fools
smoking
drinking water as they talked
of how they loved our lady
and oh the smell as candles die

one more ice cream river body
flowed underneath the bridge
underneath the bridge
The Lovecats
03:40
we move like cagey tigers
oh we couldn't get closer than this
the way we walk
the way we talk
the way we stalk
the way we kiss
we slip through the streets
while everyone sleeps
getting bigger and sleeker
and wider and brighter
we bite and scratch and scream all night
let's go and throw
all the songs we know...

into the sea
you and me
all the years and no one heard
i'll show you in spring
it's a treacherous thing
we missed you hissed the lovecats
we missed you hissed the lovecats

we're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
wonderfully pretty!
oh you know that i'd do anything for you...
we should have each other to tea huh?
we should have each other with cream
then curl up in the fire
and sleep for awhile
it's the grooviest thing
it's the perfect dream

into the sea
you and me
all the years and no one heard
i'll show you in spring
it's a treacherous thing
we missed you hissed the lovecats
we missed you hissed the lovecats
we missed you hissed the lovecats
we missed you hissed the lovecats

we're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
wonderfully pretty!
you know that i'd do anything for you...
we should have each other to dinner
we should have each other with cream
then curl up in the fire
get out for awhile
it's the grooviest thing
it's the perfect dream

hand in hand
is the only way to land
and always the right way round
not broken in pieces
like hated little meeces...
how could we miss
someone as dumb as this?
we missed you hissed the lovecats

i love you... let's go...
oh... solid gone...
how could we miss
someone as dumb as this?
