"Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful?" by Paloma Faith, which consists of 9 songs.
I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
I don't claim to be perfect
I know I'm damaged goods
But I wanna be led out of darkness just like every lady would
Lick my wounds and watch them seal with your healing heart
Embrace my sadness, Look after me
Coz there is no one else I 'd ask
Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful?
Prophet took my hand on all saints day
He preached the values of deception
Changing shadows by a shapeshifter rules
Tales are never just for fools
The court of concience came before me
Presenting me with a heavenly angel
You took my hand and ask me, truth aside
To his questions I replied
Do you want the truth or something beautiful?
Just close your eyes and make believe
My Legs Are Weak
I am collecting people's tears, they cry because they miss you
They fill the seas and and all the lakes with, memories of windblew
I've run out of jobs before a second could pass
Didn't have enough time with you to turn the hour glass
Pictures in my head suddenly appear
Why do you have to go away, it's all very clear
Goodbye sweet angel
Sail away on teary seas
Tattoo the times we had, all my memories
My legs are weak!
Picking Up The Pieces
Do you think of her
When you're with me
Repeat those memories you made together
Who's face do you see?
Do you wish I was a bit more like her?
Am I too loud, I play the clown,
To cover up all these doubts.
Perfect heart, she's flawless
She's the over women, shining in,
We are a lullaby, an everlasting song
Taken as prisoners to a place where we belong
If the tune stops, I will not wake
Oh no, without us I'm no one, my soul swells and aches
So on the day when the music dies, so will our love
There'll be some pain, but I'll keep it in my locket
If you'll lead the band, then I will have to follow
There's no escape for me, so
Romance Is Dead
The plastic flowers you gave for sit on the table so unstable
And there is some greasy finger prints in the pre-wrote birthday card you wrote your name in
And I know that you make your effort but I think you could do much better
A rose is blue and violets red
Say it isn't true Don't tell me romance is dead
So wake up you sleepy head
All your dreams are just a kiss away...
I ask you for a letter so you emailed, Have we failed?
Oh, you kiss with such a potential, then ask to speed up
It's not enough now I am carrying my own bags up, 17 flights of stairs, love
Smoke & Mirrors
I met you, we made a pact
Broke promises the system snaps
All your lights and neon lights are old
Dicta-coated miracles and then one day the curtain called
Behind your smile you're bony and a fake
Give it up
You've been discovered (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh ooh)
Don't look back cause you've just lost your lova'
Ba da da, ba da da, ba da.
He was a star collector, she knew about the skies.
He was a tight-rope walker, she was the talk of the town.
While he was in the clouds he'd show her the signs and he'd know what they mean...
Twinkle twinkle, little dream.
Wish you were here.
How will I shine anymore without your atmosphere?
Angels watching over me
With smiles upon their face
Cause I have made it through this far
In an unforgiving place
It feels sometimes this hill's too steep
For a girl like me to climb
But I must knock those thoughts right down
I'll do it in my own time
I don't care
