Before I Knew
Oh, it was the first time I fell in love
the first time I felt my heart
it was the first time I sang out loud all through the night
but before I knew I was lost,
before I knew I was a prisioner
and I still can't find a way to make it right
I touched the ink on my paper,
a permanant scar i'm gonna carry forever to remember your arms
and though your eyes were december when you had june in your heart
and now your hands are so restless,
I never knew how you felt
and now i'm crossing my fingers, cause nothing else helps,
and I don't want to forget you but I can't help myself
I want to hang on even though you're gone
You and I, we make a grand salute
stare at eachother like lost little birds across the room
and I remember the way you looked
I learned how to dance, but I'd never shown it to you
I know I was wrong, but you know that you'll always be
stay for a while while our leaves are still green
please, for me
Oh My Darling
There are two things I will carry in my pockets at the end
oh, my darling,
you are one of them
the way you look when you have a story to begin,
oh, my darling,
that's the other half
and I will never lose them,
no i'll never never show them like a prize
I will keep them out of sight
A heart is so easy to keep
when I think of the curious look in your eyes and impossible
oh, only you could really know
i'll never let a little secret go
all of the times you were near I forgot to say
'I'm a non-believer, but I'll pray to you every day
if it would make your eyes forever stay that way
if it would make you want to stay with me'
Snakes And Ladders
These mirrors you've broken are your cry for art.
Salt and pepper shakers over your shoulders, cross your heart.
Don't you know it's bad luck to stay in one place for too long?
You've been left and divorces you've had, helpess when they go.
So we play a game of snakes and ladders,
gambled our mistakes, didn't know what could come after.
Threw away the cards. Who thinks it could matter?
Oh, who believes in fate anyway?
Why Can't It Be Mine
Last night I saw you spin around in my head
Turn the lights off and settle down inside
Feeling as far but it always dies in the night
Just close your eyes
Hold your breathe, and then
I wanna believe you
You know that I try
It's just the way that you look sometimes
Oh it's been hard on me
