SOMETHING IN THE AIR
© Copyright 2006 Anthony Emin

I can't get around this
This time I've fallen down
Three hours and waiting
These stairs are all I've found
Am I just stupid
Or are all of you the same
I'm riding this last train out
Heading far far away

Twenty cigarettes and five beers later
Phone calls that couldn't change her mind
I'm not trying this time cause
A week feels like five years later
Confused beyond self repair
Is it something in the air

I'm not just a writer
Of words you've never seen
So what I'm young and naive
Still I live my dreams
Was it too much to offer
Are you who you want to be
I'm me for me if you can't see that
I don't ever want you back

When your feeling like it's too much to take
Don't ever say it's too late too late
Feel like drowning and floating away
I hope I'm not too late

Twenty cigarettes and five beers later
Phone calls that couldn't change her mind
I'm not trying this time cause
A week feels like five years later
Confused beyond self repair
Is it something in the air



BURN TO SHINE
© Copyright 2006 Anthony Emin

Wait don't let go
Cause if this feeling isn't real
There's one thing I need to know
How could you deny me
I've given all I can
Messed up more than you'll ever know
Ruined so many perfect plans

What would you do
What would you say to me
Are you afraid of me
I'm afraid of you
What is this burn that burns inside of me
Our light it won't burn out
Not here not now

Wait take it slow
We're moving way to fast
My heart it wants to blow
Racing round in circles
Found a corner that wasn't there
What the hell am I supposed to do
Scream at me I'm pulling at my hair

What would you do
What would you say to me
Are you afraid of me
I'm afraid of you
What is this burn that burns inside of me
Our light it won't burn out
Not here not now

What would you do
What would you say to me
Are you afraid of me
I'm afraid of you
What is this burn that burns inside of me
Our light it won't burn out
Not here not now

Not now
Not now
Not here not now



RUMORS
© Copyright 2006 Anthony Emin

I need to get away from myself for a while
I need to find out what all the talks about
There's a little rumor I don't understand
I'm still trying real hard
The best I can
Holding onto my three leaf clover
It's falling apart
Falling right overboard
Things aren't looking so up for me
They say it pours in threes
I'm only four over

But I won't let you down
I'm only shaking
From the sounds we've made
And I don't have all that much to say
I just want to see you stay

Had to ask what you liked about me
You had no thin to say
I can take a hint to leave
Don't know who we are anymore
One minute I'm sober
The next I'm yours
Holding onto this empty bottle
We're falling apart
Falling right overboard
When it gets so hard to hold onto
It's hard to let go
It's even harder to show you that

I won't let you down
I'm only shaking
From the sounds we've made
And I don't have all that much to say
I just want to see you stay here with me

And I'm sorry I let you down
I sit here shaking
With no one around me
And I still don't have all that much to say
Now I dream of only if you'd staid
Now I dream of all the things I'd say



ONE MORE DRIVE

Crimson is your favorite color
Black is mine
My heart beats black too
Orchids are your favorite flowers
The rose is mine
Red and yellow

How many times will we fall apart now
How many times will we say goodbye
Is it hard for you to walk away now
Is it hard for you to say we've tried
How much longer will I live this way
How much stronger can I stay
One more drive it couldn't hurt us could it
One more drive
Just one more drive

The beach it's so cold
And there's a storm coming in
Cool sand below my toes
Stop me from sinking
The sound is so beautiful
I can't hear anything
All I can see are these
Black shadows dancing
All the waves wash away
All that I've ever been
Nothing is left of me
Nothing can change this
I'm too tired for singing
And breathing is work again
Lets get this over with
Lets fall apart again

How many times will we fall apart now
How many times will we say goodbye
Is it hard for you to walk away now
Is it hard for you to say we've tried
How much longer will I live this way
How much stronger can I stay
One more drive it couldn't hurt us could it
One more drive
Just one more drive

How many times will we fall apart now
How many times will we say goodbye
Is it hard for you to walk away now
Is it hard for you to say we've tried
How much longer will I live this way
How much stronger can I stay
One more drive it couldn't hurt us could it
One more drive
Just one more drive



NOT A CHANCE
© Copyright 2006 Anthony Emin

I can't find the words
To say what's on my mind you got me
Upside down and thinking
Thoughts all day of you
Girl you got me turning blue

You say you need some time
To figure out what you want
I say your all mixed up inside
And you can't make up your mind

Lets take a walk sometime
It be really good to see you
Hope that everything is fine
It's really good to hear your voice
If we could start again
And say the things we'd really meant
Do you think that we'd be better off and well
Not a chance in hell
Not as far as I can tell

You can't find the time to
Return my phone calls and you
Send me letters that I
I think I already sent you
Why do you do me like you do

How can you forget what
We had like it never happened
You said it was a waste
I say

Lets walk out to the lake
Cause it's got a perfect view
You've never been this beautiful
You're a dream that has come true
If we could start again
And say the things we'd really meant
Do you think that we'd be better off and well
Not a chance in hell
Not as far as I Could tell

Here we go!

Lets take a walk sometime
It be really good to see you
Hope that everything is fine
It's really good to hear you

Lets take a walk sometime
It be really good to see you
Hope that everything is fine
It's really good to hear your voice
If we could start again
And say the things we'd really meant
Do you think that we'd be better of and well
Not a chance in hell
Not as far as I can tell
No no no not a chance in hell
Not as far as I can tell



RED ROSE BUTTERFLY

Cold November
Saw you standing by the door
Of the bowling alley
Said that's what I'm looking for
Met up at the party
We kissed for the first time
Some things don't go away
Some things are hard to find

Could it work out
Don't you think that we should try
I wonder how it feels
To hold you close and tight

I'll show you home when your running away
I'll take you with me when they've told you to
Stay
I'll take your love I'll take it day by day
I promise you
Touch my face lets wait a while
I'll stand up to your every trial
I found you upon a single rose
You're my butterfly
And no one even knows

Valentines day
Night at the ballet
I wish that I could take time
Throw it all away
What could be better
Than to be just you and me
We could stand beneath the stars
Stay there forever

I'll show you home when your running away
I'll take you with me when they've told you to
Stay
I'll take your love I'll take it day by day
I promise you
Touch my face lets wait a while
I'll stand up to your any trial
I found you upon a single rose
Your my butterfly
And no one even knows

Things have to change
That's just the way it is
I love you just the same
As I always did
Your still my favorite
You'll always be my number one
No matter where you go
I'm gonna stand behind you Hun

I'll show you home when your running away
I'll take you with me when they've told you to
Stay
I'll take your love take it day by day
I promise you
Touch my face lets wait a while
I'll stand up to your every trial
I found you upon a single rose
Your my butterfly
And no one even knows



BLUE SKIES
© Copyright 2006 Anthony Emin

I don't need nothing
Nothing but blue skies
I can't find reason
I feel the way I do
Open city breathing
Feed me your life-line
I've been to lonely
To feel the way I do

When I'm gone again
It won't be long
I'm holding on
When I needed a friend
A hand to hold
I won't grow old
So let me ask you once again
If we could talk about it

I felt so locked up
While she got knocked up
I can't find reason
I feel the way I do
Some days come lazy
Some days they come slow
Some days never come at all
Like the days when I'm alone

When I'm gone again
It won't be long
I'm holding on
When I needed a friend
A hand to hold
I won't grow old
So let me ask you once again
If we could talk about it

Lately I've been so wrong
I said lately I've been wrong

When I'm gone again
It won't be long
I'm holding on
When I needed a friend
A hand to hold
I won't grow old
So let me ask you once again
If we could talk about it
