Faces In Disguise

these fears come rushing in when i enter here
another layer on my back
a blazing fire where our glances meet
the largest feeling towering over me

faces in disguise
not a trace of desire…

i long to take you to a secret place
where we could lay aside our past
we’d throw the world away with all it’s pain
to shine like stars through storm and clouds and rain

faces in disguise
not a trace of desire…

go face the day, go and see new things
go face the day, but you’ll remember me…
i see a tear inside when you’re turned away
another wound that i’d take back
if i could fill your heart just once
and then i’d take you now
where we could live again

faces in disguise
not a trace of desire…

faces in disguise
not a trace of desire…

go face the day, go and see new things
go face the day, but you’ll remember me…

welcome to nowhere fast
nothing here ever lasts
nothing but memories
of what never was
we’re nowhere, we’re nowhere, we’re nowhere to be
nowhere, we’re nowhere, we’re nowhere to see
living makes me sick
so sick i wish i’d die
down in the belly of the beast
i can’t lie
you’re nowhere, you’re nowhere, you’re nowhere to be
nowhere, you’re nowhere, you’re nowhere to see
there’s nothing left to do
there’s nothing left to feel
doesn’t matter what you want, so
to make yourself feel better
you make it so you’ll never
give in to your forevers
and live for always
and forever, forever, you’re forever to be
forever, forever, you’re forever to me

Seven

 

Sew it on.
Face the fool.
December’s tragic drive
When time is poetry
And stolen the world outside
The waiting could crush my heart

You’ll taste it
In time

The right words
In time

Sew it on.
Face the fool.
The mirrors lie those aren’t my eyes
Destroy them raise my hand
Reflected in savage shards
A new face a soul reborn.

You’ll taste it
In time

The right words
In time

 

Every Shining Time You Arrive

Change in every little desire
We were counting on forces we could not control
Oh and all those things you realized
Were nothing more than a memory displaced through
So the story’s told beyond our grasp
We were climbing forever an infinite task
Shoulders straining with the endless toil
We’re nothing more than a feather moving in the wind
I want to change everything
I want to change everything
I want to blame everything on
Oh and all these seeds will grow anyway
Even though the outcome we cannot say
So you’ll always have your time to shine
Even in the winter of your darkest hour
Want to change everything
I want to change everything
I want to blame everything on

In the depths of my gloom
I crawl out for you
From the peaks of my joy
I crawl back into
Tearing me down every time you smile
Every shining time you arrive

Fell On Black Days

 

Whatsoever I’ve feared has come to life
Whatsoever I’ve fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I’m doing time
Now I’m doing time
‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

Whomsoever I’ve cured, I’ve sickened now
And whomsoever I’ve cradled, I’ve put you down
I’m a search light soul they say
But I can’t see it in the night

I’m only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate? Yeah

So what you wanted to see good
Has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours
Has made it mine

Don’t you lock up something
That you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No, not tying, no, not tying

I sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change
Yeah, I sure don’t mind, sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

I sure don’t mind a change

‘From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea’

Every time we do this
I fall for her
Wave after wave after wave
It’s all for her
I know this can’t be wrong I say
(and I’ll lie to keep her happy)
As long as I know that you know
That today I belong
Right here with you
Right here with you…
And so we watch the sun come up
From the edge of the deep green sea
And she listens like her head’s on fire
Like she wants to believe in me
So I try
Put your hands in the sky
Surrender
Remember
We’ll be here forever
And we’ll never say goodbye

I’ve never been so
Colorfully-see-through-head before
I’ve never been so
Wonderfully-me-you-want-some-more
And all I want is to keep it like this
You and me alone
A secret kiss
And don’t go home
Don’t go away
Don’t let this end
Please stay
Not just for today

Never never never never never let me go she says
Hold me like this for a hundred thousand million days
But suddenly she slows
And looks down at my breaking face
Why do you cry? what did I say?
But it’s just rain I smile
Brushing my tears away

I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
Too many tears
Too many times
Too many years I’ve cried over you

How much more can we use it up?
Drink it dry?
Take this drug?
Looking for something forever gone
But something
We will always want?

Why why why are you letting me go? she says
I feel you pulling back
I feel you changing shape
And just as I’m breaking free
She hangs herself in front of me
Slips her dress like a flag to the floor
And hands in the sky
Surrenders it all

I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
Too many tears
Too many times
Too many years I’ve cried for you
It’s always the same
Wake up in the rain
Head in pain
Hung in shame
A different name
Same old game
Love in vain
And miles and miles and miles and miles and miles
Away from home again

-The Cure

 

“Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream” she said
“The one that makes me laugh” she said
And threw her arms around my neck
“Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I’ll run away with you
I’ll run away with you”

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
“Why are you so far away?” she said
“Why won’t you ever know that I’m in love with you
That I’m in love with you”

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You’re just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Just like heaven

-The Cure

 

 

Forget Her

While this town is busy sleeping,
All the noise has died away.
I walk the streets to stop my weeping,
‘Cause she’ll never change her ways.

Don’t fool yourself, she was heartache from the moment that you met her.
Ah, my heart feels so still as I try to find the will to forget her, somehow.
Ooh, I think I’ve forgotten her now.

Her love is a rose, pale and dying.
Dropping her petals in land unknown
All full of wine, the world before her, was sober with no place to go.

Don’t fool yourself, she was heartache from the moment that you met her.
My heart is frozen still as I try to find the will to forget her, somehow.
She’s somewhere out there now.

Black Metallic

I’ve never seen you when you’re smiling
It really gets under my skin
You say it’s easy when it’s faster
I still can’t guess what you’re after

It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic

I think of you when you’re sleeping
Of all the secrets that you’re keeping
You can’t stay all day under the covers
‘Cause under there you’ll discover

It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
You’re turning black metallic

It’s the color of your skin
It’s the color of your skin

Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
You’re turning black metallic

It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic

Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
