Consolation, lyrics


Bye bye

Twenty years seems a very long time
now I’m gonna do something that’s mine

so bye bye
baby, bye bye

you say what I’m doing is brave
but you don’t understand the way I behave

so bye bye
baby, bye bye

People say I don’t see what I got
but I keep looking at what I have not
so hear me out I am ready to fly
I’m spreading my wings
baby, bye bye


Consolation

What if I could just be there
without trying too hard
to have someone to love me
when I don't play my part

I don't need consolation
I just need somewhere to hide

Your arms could give me shelter
when is weary my heart,
and I would love you for ever
If I knew where to start

and I don't need consolation
I just need somewhere to hide

Looking up to the sky
I see specs of blue.
Give me time and I’ll try
to stay here with you.

And I would love you for ever
If I knew where to start

I don't need consolation
I just need somewhere to hide
I don’t need consolation,
I just need somewhere to hide.
somewhere to hide,
somewhere…


Hang on to a dream (Tim Hardin)

What can I say, she's walking away
From what we've seen
What can I do, still loving you
It's all a dream

How can we hang on to a dream
How can it, will it be, the way it seems

What can I do, she's saying we're through
With how it was
What will I try, I still don't see why
She says what she does

How can we hang on to a dream
How can it, will it be, the way it seems

What can I say, she's walking away
From what we've seen
What can I do, still loving you
It's all a dream

How can we hang on to a dream
How can it, will it be, the way it seems
How can we hang on to a dream

What can I say, she's walking away
From what we've seen
What can I do, still loving you
It's all a dream

How can we hang on to a dream
How can it, will it be, the way it seems
How can we hang on to a dream


Lovesong (deceiving)

I don’t mind a little deceiving
I hold on to what I believe in
and while it lasts, I’ll stay where I am

Knowing for sure where you are heading
collecting tears that you’ll never be shedding
it’s sad, it is, but I’ll smile as long as I can

come what may
I’ll stand strong
as long as I sing
I’ll just hold on
plead all I can, pray loud and clear
that someone will hear

I’ll take care of love, take care of sorrow
make sure you need not worry ‘bout tomorrow
I’ll sing you my lovesong, again


Mercy

Children running in the playground
laughing loud make me wonder why
all those happy loving couples
holding hands only make me cry

My, have mercy
my heart can only break once
I wake each morning
singing one of my favorite songs

I watch my lover when he's sleeping
Try to see if I'm still in his heart
Tears fall on my empty pillow
there's no ending once the crying starts

My, have mercy
my heart can only break twice
I pray each morning
let me stay in my sweet paradise

Cold rain falls on my face
washes tears away
cold cold tears

The thought of losing all my loved ones
made me weep when I couldn't sleep
now its seems that my own leaving
hurts as much, it cuts just as deep

My have mercy
how many times can my aching heart break?
I cry, have mercy
It's so much more than I can take
My have mercy
i'm asleep, and I don't want to wake


Ophelia

ophelia sings songs and speaks her heart
her love’s estranged from her, all seems dark
she’s lost her sense of time, it slips like water flows
falling from her eyes as she goes

Ophelia
walks by the waterside

she feels a fool to not know what’s gone wrong with bliss
slowly drifting off like when they kissed
she’s lost her heart, it floats the way the river goes
falling from her eyes , water flows

Ophelia
walked by the waterside


She can’t sleep

All the love you have inside
making crooked straight, wrong right
it can be so bittersweet

she can’t sleep

Moving fast or sliding slow
where it goes nobody knows
it can freeze you with it’s heat

she can’t sleep

Ooh, isn’t love to strive for?
Makes you wanna live and die for?

If you wait it might be gone
you’ll be dreaming on you own
it can seem all that you need

she can’t sleep
she can’t sleep
she can’t sleep


Some say

Some say the present is
a precious little gift
the past and future are just
weights that you must lift

you hope for sunny days
but all you see are clouds
you have no hand in fate
get our umbrella out

just try to live here without sorrow
tomorrow is just so far away

you may curse the stone
that caused you so much pain
but water flows and you will
never meet again

you wish for tearless days
you hope for endless smiles
but pain and effort seem to
make it all worthwhile

and if it starts to rain in your heart
wear a raincoat and a hat
