Lyrics

Heartthrob

Closer

geschrieben von Tegan Quin

All I want to get is a little bit closer
All I want to know is, can you come a little closer
Here comes the breath before we get a little bit closer
Here comes the rush before the touch, come a little closer

The doors are open, the wind is really blowing
The night sky is changing over head

It’s not just all physical
I’m the type who won’t get oh so critical
So let’s make things physical
I won’t treat you like you’re oh so typical

All you think of lately is getting underneath me
All I dream of lately is how to get you underneath me
Here comes the heat before we meet a little bit closer
Here comes the spark before the dark, come a little closer

The lights are off and the sun is finally setting
The night sky is changing over head

It’s not just all physical
I’m the type who won’t get oh so critical
So let’s make things physical
I won’t treat you like you’re oh so typical

I want you close, I want you
I won’t treat you like you’re typical
I want you close, I want you
I won’t treat you like you’re typical

Here come the dreams of you and me
Here come the dreams

Goodbye, Goodbye
geschrieben von Sara Quin

Goodbye
I don’t wanna
Feel the need
To hear your voice

Goodbye
I don’t wanna
Feel the need
To see your face

I can’t live with
All these things I would say
I can’t live with
All these things that I’d say

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

You never really knew me
Never ever, never ever saw me
Saw me like they did

You never really loved me
Never really, never really loved me
Loved me like they did

With some time
I might wanna
See the way
That you’ve changed

With some time
I might wanna
See how you fared
What you can’t replace

I can’t stand it
All these things I’ve let go
I can’t stand it
All these things I’ve let go

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

You never really knew me
Never ever, never ever saw me
Saw me like they did

You never really loved me
Never really, never really loved me
Loved me like they did

You coulda told me
Goodbye
You coulda told me
Goodbye

You let me try
Knowing there was nothing I could do
To change you

You coulda warned me
Knowing there was nothing I could do
To change you

You never really knew me
Never ever, never ever saw me
Saw me like they did

You never really loved me
Never really, never really loved me
Loved me like they did

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Like the first time

You never really knew me
Never ever, never ever saw me
Saw me like they did

You never really loved me
Never really, never really loved me
Loved me like they did

I was a fool
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

Do you remember I searched you out
How I climbed your city’s walls?
Do you remember me as devout
How I prayed for your calls?

I stood still is what I did
Love like ours is never fixed

I stuck around
I did behave
I saved you every time
I was a fool for love
I was a fool for love
I was a fool [x2]

Then you blamed me and blocked me out
How long did you think I’d last?
Then you disappeared for weeks to pout
How many times could I pack?

But stand still is all I did
Love like ours is never fixed

Still I stuck around
I did behave
I saved you every time
I was a fool for love
I was a fool for love
I was a fool [x2]

If you’re worried that I might’ve changed
Left behind all of my foolish ways
You best be looking for somebody else
Without a foolish heart, a foolish heart

But stand still is all we did
Love like ours is never fixed

I stuck around
I did behave
I saved you every time
I was a fool for love
I was a fool for love
I was a fool

I´m not your hero
geschrieben von Sara Quin

Standing where I am now, standing up at all
I was used to feeling like I was never gonna see myself at the finish line
Hanging on to parts of me, hanging on at all
I was used to seeing no future in my sight line

Sometimes it feels like they wanna remind me
Send all those villains after me

I’m not their hero
But that doesn’t mean that I wasn’t brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn’t mean that I was never afraid
I’m not your hero
But that doesn’t mean we’re not one and the same

Feeling like I am now lighting up the hall
I was used to standing in the shadow of a damaged heart
Learning all I know now, losing all I did
I never used to feel like I’d be standing so far ahead

Sometimes it feels what I recovered you lost
Sending your peaceful loss to me

I’m not their hero
But that doesn’t mean that I wasn’t brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn’t mean that I was never afraid
I’m not your hero
But that doesn’t mean we’re not one and the same

Sometimes it feels like the side that I’m on
Plays the toughest hand, holds the longest stand
Sometimes it feels like I’m all that they’ve got
It’s so hard to know I’m not what they want

Sometimes it feels like the side that I’m on
Plays the toughest hand, holds the longest stand
Sometimes it feels like I’m all that they’ve got
It’s so hard to know I’m not what they want

I’m not their hero
But that doesn’t mean that I wasn’t brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn’t mean that I was never afraid
I’m not your hero
But that doesn’t mean we’re not one and the same
I do my best to walk the finest line
Till I’ve had all that I can take

Drove me wild
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

When I think of you I think of your skin,
Golden brown from the sun.
Your arms outstretched, you’re hair cut shorter than it´d been
But still blowing in the wind.
When I picture you I think of your smile
And it drives me wild.
You’re laugh escaping you your head thrown to the side
And it drives me wild.

You carried romance in the palm of your hand,
You caught the plays for us.
You clung to self restraint you follow the plan,
You put the brakes on this
And it drove me, and it drove me,
And it drove me wild.

When I envision you I think of your sheets
Tangled up beneath me.
Your body inching close, closerto the edged,
I got a hold of you then.
When I imagine you I think of that room
And it drives me wild.
Your face relaxed, your voice a whisper in my ear,
And it drives me wild.

You carried romance in the palm of your hand,
You caught the plays for us.
You clung to self restraint you follow the plan,
You put the brakes on this
And it drove me, and it drove me,
And it drove me wild.

And it drove me, and it drove me,
And it drove me wild.

I would have had us swerving through those streets
Over and over.
I would have stalled or rushed us through those greens
Over and over.
But you knew that and you wouldn´t let me lose control, control

How come you don´t want me
geschrieben von Sara Quin

I can’t say that I’m sorry,
for getting so ahead of myself.
I can’t say that I’m sorry
For loving you and hating myself.
I had nothing to show you,
I had nothing to hold you down.
It’s killing me to walk away.

How come you don’t want me now?
Why don’t you want to wait this out?
How come you always lead me on
Never take my call, hear me out?
Why don’t you wanna win me now?
Why don’t you want to show me off?
Tell me why you’re couldn´t try, couldn´t try and keep me here.

I see you by my house, walking with a different girl,
I see you by my house, talking with a different girl.
She’s got nothing to show you, she’s got nothing to hold you down.
You’re killing me walk away.

One day, soon
I won’t be the one who waits on you.
(One day you won´t know me)
Some day soon
I won’t be the one who waits on you.
(Some day you won´t know me)

I couldn´t be your friend
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

Does your heart ache when you get around me?
Does your heart break when you think about me?
Now you want to say I was a liar,
Let you astray, I won’t deny it
I did what they thought would be good for me.

Now you wanna cry, call me a cheater,
I left you to die, though I did neither
Thought that it would, that it would be best for me.

Do you crumble, do your worst
Do you tumble, do your worst.

I couldn’t be your friend,
Even if I tried again.
I couldn’t be your friend, couldn’t be your friend.
Try to conceal it, I won’t believe it,
Even if I tried again.
I couldn’t be your friend.

Does your body ache when you get around me?
Does your body ache when you think about me?
Now you want to say I was a criminal,
Stole you away, that sounds so fictional,
I did what they thought would be good for me.

Do you crumble, do your worst
Do you tumble, do your worst.
I couldn’t be your friend,
Even if I tried again.
I couldn’t be your friend, couldn’t be your friend.
Try to conceide it, I won’t believe it,
Even if I tried again.
I couldn’t be your friend.

Now you want to say you had it all wrong
Now you want to say you had me all wrong.

Love they say
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

The first time I saw your face I knew I was meant for you.
The first time you said my name I knew I was meant for you.

Love, they say, it heals all wounds,
Love removes the hurt in you,
Love, I know that this is true.
Love, they say that it is blind,
Love, they say it all the time,
Love, I know that they are right.
Love, they say this

You don’t need to wonder if love will make us stronger,
There’s nothing love can’t do.
Love, they say this,
You don’t need to worry, this love will make us worthy
There’s nothing love can’t do.

The first time you held my hand I knew I was meant for you
The first time you kissed my lips I knew I was meant for you

Love, they say there’s only one,
Love, the kind that’s not undone,
Love, I know you are the one
Love, they say this

You don’t need to wonder if love will make us stronger,
There’s nothing love can’t do.
Love, they say this,
You don’t need to worry, this love will make us worthy
There’s nothing love can’t do.

I know they say that we’re crazy,
Tell them, there’s nothing love can’t do.
I know you’ll say that we’re crazy.

Love, they say it heals all wounds,
Love removes the hurt in you,
Love, I know that this is true.
Love, they say it’s only one,
Love, the kind that’s not undone,
Love, I know you are the one.

Now I´m all messed up
geschrieben von Sara Quin

Stay
You’ll leave me in the morning anyway.
My heart
You’ll cut it out, you never liked me anyway.
Why do you take me down this road
If you don’t want to walk with me?
Why do you exit go it alone
When you could just talk to me?

Now I’m all messed up,
Sick inside, wondering where,
Where you’re leaving your makeup.
Now I’m all messed up,
Sick inside wondering who,
Whose life you’re making worthwhile.

Go, go, go if you want,
I can’t stop you.
Go if you want,
I can’t stop you.

Sad
You come back to me always anyway
Leave a mark
You said you never really loved her anyway.

Why do I take this lonely road,
Nobody here to walk with me.
Don’t want to start fresh all over again,
Why won’t you just comfort me?

Now I’m all messed up,
Sick inside, wondering where,
Where you’re leaving your makeup.
Now I’m all messed up,
Sick inside wondering who,
Whose life you’re making worthwhile.

Go, go, go if you want,
I can’t stop you.
Go if you want,
I can’t stop you.

Now I’m all messed up,
I’m sick inside, wondering where,
Where you’re leaving your makeup.
Now I’m all messed up,
Sick inside wondering who,
Whose life you’re making worthwhile.

Go, go, go if you want,
I can’t stop you.
Go if you want,
I can’t stop you.

Go (please stay)
Go (please stay)
Go if you want,
I can’t stop you.
(You´ll go if you want to,
You´ll go if you want to)
Go if you want,
I can’t stop you.

Shock to your system
geschrieben von Sara Quin

You seem like you’re so restless, young at heart,
Who gave you reason?
You should be out driving people wild,
Who gave you reason?

You got a shock to your system
Knocked your heart right out of sync.

You’re only meant to hurt once in a while,
Who gave you reason?
You’re only meant to cry once in a while,
Who gave you reason?

You got a shock to your system,
Pull yourself out of it.
I know that shock to your system
Knocked your heart right out of sync
What you are is lonely

You must rely on love once in a while
To give you reason.
You must rely on me once in a while
To give you reason.

Get Along

Alligator

geschrieben von Sara Quin

Sensitive, it’s true, alligator tears cried over you.
Run around on me, I’d sooner die without.
Run around on me, die without.
Relentless, yes it’s true, my motormouth runs over you.
No hissy fits, mind my manners, won’t make a scene over you.
Rattled yes, it’s true, alligator tears spilled over you.

I know I Know I know

geschrieben von Tegan Quin
from hundreds of miles you cry like a baby
you plead with me, shout, scream, tell me I’m staying
I know I know I know, I’m still your love
back from the last place that I wanted to fake you
laugh with me, shout, scream now tell me you’re staying
I know I know I know, you’re still my love
the same as I love you, you’ll always love me too
this love isn’t good unless it’s me and you
box after box and you’re still by my side
the weather is changing and breaking my stride
I know I know I know, it’s just this day
house after house, just like car after car
you see club after club and it all seems so far
I know I know I know what else are we here for
the same as I love you, you’ll always love me too
this love isn’t good unless it’s me and you
stick your hands inside of my pockets
keep them warm while I’m still here
tell them this love hasn’t changed me, hasn’t changed me at all
last night I was writing about you
I know my screaming and shouting won’t keep you
I know I know I know, you’re still my love
I wake up to the sound of you working
you’re one room right over, stressing and loving me
I know I know I know, be still my love
the same as I love you, you’ll always love me too
this love isn’t good unless it’s me and you
stick your hands inside of my pockets
keep them warm while I’m still here
tell them this love hasn’t changed me, hasn’t changed me at all
stick your heart inside of my chest
keep it warm here while we rest
tell them this love hasn’t changed me, hasn’t changed me at all
the same as I love you, you’ll always love me too
this love isn’t good unless it’s me and you

I hear noises

geschrieben von Tegan Quin

I am dissapointed
every morning that I wake up
I am dissapointed by the feeling
of waking up next to you
you call me up let me know that
that my sick guilt is so unwelcome
it’s so unwelcome
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness in your voice
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness inside you
my health is failing me
so I flip on the television
and watch sad movies
and look for sad sick people like me
call me up and let me know that
that my sick guilt is so unwelcome
I’m so unwelcome
I’m so unwelcome
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness in your voice
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness inside you
we could go
we could go through the front door
we could go
we go in through the front door
we could go
we go in through the front door
we could go
I come in through the front door
through the front door
And the pills they will not
will not will not
will not let me go
and I will not will not
will not let you drink yourself alone
call me up and let me know that
that my sick guilt is so unwelcome
you’re so unwelcome
you’re so unwelcome
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness in your voice
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness inside you
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness inside you
I hear sadness inside you

Nightwatch
geschrieben von Sara Quin

I’ve got grounds for divorce.
It’s in my blood this divorce.
I seperate everybody, I need distance from your body.
Oh I deserve this anguish on my house.
So get away, you cannot follow me.
I get away, you cannot follow me.
I’ve got grounds for recourse.
Your lungs fill with discourse.
You seperate from my body, you need consistence from somebody.
Oh I deserve this angusih on my house.

Back in your head

geschrieben von Sara Quin
build a wall of books between us in our bed.
repeat, repeat, the words that I know we both have said.
relax into the need, we get so comfortable.
remember when I was so strange and likeable?
I just want back in your head.
I´m not unfaithful but I´ll stray.
when I get a little scared, I run, run, run.
when I jerk away from holding hands with you,
I know these habits hurt important parts of you.
remember when I was sweet and unexplainable?
nothing like this person, un-loveable?

Divided
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

go downtown to catch the early movie
the shows are cheaper there
and they don’t mind if you put your feet up
she’s out on the highway
she’s got a homemade sign it says
go ahead and try to figure out what my future looks like
I don’t wanna live my life like a story
I was thinking I could’ve been something
don’t run along side and control me
just film away and let me be
at ease, I feel fine
I’ll move on, I’ll go on
there’s something so divided
don’t worry about me I’ll be fine
don’t live your life for me or for anyone
you Live your life as if you’re one
you Live your life as if you’re one
find quiet, it’s awful quiet
how can you be mad we just got started
I want to shave my head and lie in bed all day long
how can you be mad we just got started
live your life as if you’re one
live your life as if you’re one
at ease, I feel fine
I’ll go on, I’ll move on
don’t live your life like a movie
always thinking you could’ve been something
don´t live your life for me or for anyone
you live your life as if you’re one
You live your life as if you’re one
find quiet, it’s awful quiet

Call it off
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

I won´t regret saying this, this thing that I´m saying.
is it better then keeping my mouth shut, that goes without saying.
call, break it off. call, break my own heart.
maybe I would have been something you´d be good at.
maybe you would have been something I´d be good at.
but now we´ll never know.
I won´t be sad but in case I´ll go there everyday to make myself feel bad.
there´s a chance I´ll start to wonder if this was the thing to do.
I won´t be out long but I still think it better if you take your time over here.
I think that´s for the best.

Relief next to me

geschrieben von Sara Quin
I miss you now, I guess I should have missed you then.
my body moves like curtains waving in and out of wind,
in and out of windows.
I can´t untangle what I feel and what would matter most.
I can´t close an eye, can´t close an eyelid.
now there´s just no point in reaching out for me.
in the dark, I´m just no good at giving relief.
in the dark, it won´t be easy to find relief
and I´m not proud that nothing will seem easy about me.
but I promise this, I won´t go my hole life telling you I don´t need.
I´ll tell you now, I guess like I should have told you then
that thunder moves like damn drawers slamming in my frame,
slamming in my framework.
I can´t untangle what I know and what should matter most.
I can´t close an eye, can´t clos an eyelid.
now there´s just no point in reaching out for you.

The ocean

geschrieben von Tegan Quin
When you wake what is it that you think of most?
When your bed is empty do you really sleep alone?
If I imagine you, body next to another.
All around me new love and it makes me sad.
All around me feel assured that you’ll be back,
If I imagine you, body next to another.
Stop crying to the ocean, stop crying over me.
Stop worrying over nothing, stop worrying over me.
So it’s been so long since you said,
Well I know what I want and what I want’s right here with you.
On the drive back here I was worrying over nothing.
On the drive back there tears spilling over something.
When I imagine you, body next to another.
In the door and you’re there and you’re sorry for the fright.
In the door, can I hear you saying you don’t wanna fight
When I imagine you, body next to another.
In a flash it’s back to you, just brought attention to the mess.
In a flash you’re on top begging me to understand.
If I imagine you, body next to another.
You drop in for a minute and I’m sorry that I didn’t drop in sooner
just to see you and see what you’ve been doin’.
If I imagine you, body next to another.

Nineteen

geschrieben von Tegan Quin
I felt you in my legs before I ever met you.
and when I laid beside you for the first time I told you,
” I feel you in my heart and I don´t even know you. ”
and now we´re saying bye.
I was nineteen, calling.
I felt you in my life before I ever thought to,
feel the need to lay down beside you and tell you
” I feel you in my heart and I don´t even knoe you ”
and now we´re saying bye.
I was nineteen, call me.
flew home, back to where we met.
stayed inside I was so upset.
cooked up a plan so good exept
I was all alone, you were all I had.
love you, you were all I had.
love me, I was your´s right?

Knife going in

geschrieben von Sara Quin
if I don´t recover, sell this house and find something lost outside your window.
not forever. on the night I die I swear I´ll sleep outside your window.
I feel the knife going in, I´m feeling anxious.
not enough to kill me, I thought it´d happen fast.
but i´m feeling it now and I feel anxious. sleeping inches from me, I let it pass.
emy should I stop? do you think i´ll make it to the morning if it´s ritten?
stitch it up. the kind of song I know cause mother, sister, lover worry.

Not with you

geschrieben von Sara Quin
I can’t believe I’ve let you in and now here I am
telling you that I’m suffocating in here
just like the drugs you are keeping me
I felt shark teeth underneath my socks
before I lost much blood
around this world will I be enough?
from the liquor stores to the train stop floors
your filthy room your drama blues
I am nothing if I’m not with you
I’m always right always wrong
dressing bad is like loving you
there is nothing I haven’t worn
nothing I haven’t said before
your fluid is thick against my sheets
when you look at me
oh so angry I know it’s true
my strength has come from loving you
behavior I just can’t grow into
so you fake and you flaw for your cops and your cause
it makes no difference to me it’s love that you stole
that you stole
from the liquor stores to the train stop floors
your filthy room your drama blues
I am nothing if I’m not with you
I’m always right always wrong
dressing bad is like loving you
there is nothing I haven’t worn
nothing I haven’t said before so here I am
around this world will I be enough?
this is nothing I haven’t said before
you are nothing I haven’t felt before<

I won´t be left

geschrieben von Tegan Quin
I won’t mistake you for problems with me
I won’t let my moods ruin this, you’ll see
I won’t take everything good and move it away
I won’t be left dancing alone to songs from the past
would you stay home and keep our memories warm with me
would you give all your love for a run at the past with me
I know you’re sad even though you say that you’re not
I know you’re scared even though you say that you’re not
I won’t get mad when you say things are getting too hard
I won’t make all of your love so scared to come through our yard
I won’t scream in my head and let it isolate me
I won’t be left dancing alone to songs from the past

Sentimental tune

geschrieben von Sara Quin
You in a simple gray coat in a simple white room.
Oh now you know you know it now.
And so now you know you know it now.
You hate the tenderhearted torch song.
You catch a flame to my sentiment, my sentimental tune.
Hard-hearted don’t worry I’m ready for a fight.
Unnerved, the nerve, you’re nervous, nervous that I’m right.
Now with your cause and affection on my mind,
I won’t yield, throw caution into the blaze.
Watch, with a bit of friction I’ll be under your clothes.
With a bit of focus I’ll be under your skin.

Sainthood

Arrow

geschrieben von Sara Quin

Would you take a straight and narrow critical look at me?
Would you tell me tough love style, put judicial weight on me?
If you’re thinking anything, if you’re thinking endlessly.
I feel the breeze, feel feathers of an arrow.
Out in my yard, feathers of an arrow.
I take my aim, do you feel me coming close?
Take my aim so you feel me coming close?
Would you take a calm and tender terminal kind of care? Would you touch me, cling and wage an intimate fight for me?

Don´t rush
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

Don’t block, bad idea, you’ve been so good I hear, don’t rush.
Don’t move, bad idea, you’ve been so still, I’m here for you don’t rush.
One way or another, I’ll find my way to cover,
I sing to find my other, sing to find my one way my lovely other,
they find restless cover, you sing to another, sing to find your…
Don’t leave, bad idea, you’ve been so far so long, don’t rush.
Don’t run, bad idea, you move so fast, I need to rush.
One way or another, I’ll find my way to cover,
I sing to find my other, sing to find my…
One way my lovely other, they find restless cover, you sing to another, sing to find your…
One way or another, I’ll find my way to cover,
I’d love to find my other, love to find you.
One way my lovely other, they’ll find restless cover, you’ve loved so many others.
One way to erase bad ideas, well I won’t see you once you arrive.
One way to escape bad ideas, well I won’t cry to you, not that you would mind.

Hell
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

No, I’m not ready for a big bad step in their direction.
No, I’m not ready for downtown trash, avoid collection.
Four blocks, run and hide, don’t walk alone at night.
Cityscape, city change before they die.
Four blocks, I should mention in a song if I want to get along with change,
Who doesn’t wanna change this?
I know you feel it too, these words get overused.
When we get up and over it and over them,
Up and over it and over them.
I know you feel it too, it all seems so untrue.
When you get up and over it and over them,
Oh oh hell no.
No, we’re not ready for fair distribution, just a terminal solution for…
No, we’re not ready for hell, hell no, for hell, hell no.
Four days, wide awake, why slide along and say.
Girl’s afraid, girl will change, just move away.
Four days that I mention in a song, move along, get ahead, get her hand and bring her with you.
Four ways to remove all the bad that we do from the heart and the soul of the cities sad and cold.
Four ways to collect what we say and what we save to discard and discover a brand new way

On directing
geschrieben von Sara Quin

You’re directing me, your eyes focus like a microscope.
Get the cuts you need, eyes focus like a microscope.
Go steady with me, I know it turns you off when I – I get talking like a teen.
I get talking like a teen.
You’re directing me. You’re dressed up I lose my grip, my focus.
Make those eyes at me, I lose my grip, I lose my focus.

Red belt
geschrieben von Sara Quin

When you think nothing could be further from the truth.
When you’re sure nothing could be further from the cold hard truth.
I kneel to condition all the feelings that I feel.
Slow it down, you have a tendency to rush back into your past.
Slow it down, you transfer all your weight and disappear.
You kneel to condition all the feelings that you feel.
I’ve got a red belt around my mind.
My hands are tied up around these words.
I wish you’d call but I know that you’re out tonight.
My ears fill with the sound of you kneeling.
My ears fill with the sound of descent.
My ears fill with the sound of you arching.
Slow it down, you have a tendency to rush back into your past.
Slow it down you transfer all your weight and disappear.
Kneel to condition all the feelings that you feel.

The cure
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

Begging like you might take order in your own hands.
I stare, seems like I don’t care, drop a chance in your hands then.
I know that bad’s got to fix itself, correct over time.
And I know ’cause I’ve got the cure, I’ve got a cure for your crimes.
All I dreamed up, all that seemed like luck seems silly to you now.
All I said to you, all I did for you seems so silly to me now.
Screaming like no one might call the cops and arrest you this time.
Standing back against my building’s back door, you’re hoping for a ride.
I know the world’s been mean to you, I’ve got a cure, hold tight.
I know the world’s not fair to you, I’ve got a cure for it’s crimes.
Oh oh when you say it,
So so slowly to me,
Oh oh well I keep going,
Oh no I ran while knowing,
No no I know you need it,
So so I need it too,
And oh oh I must keep going,
So so you must too.
I’ve got a cure I’ve got the cure for you.

Northshore
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

Don’t bend, don’t bleed, don’t beg, don’t scream, don’t whine, don’t fight, don’t tell me.
Don’t feel, don’t tear, don’t kiss, don’t care, don’t touch, don’t want me.
Something’s so sick about this, my misery’s so addictive.
I’m halfway there watching Northshore from the floor singing to you over my sholder.
Don’t run, don’t hide, don’t hurt, don’t lie, don’t breathe, don’t try, don’t find me.
Don’t cringe, don’t clench, don’t look, don’t flinch, don’t know, don’t go, don’t leave me.
Don’t sing, don’t talk, don’t yell, don’t laugh, don’t think, don’t speak, don’t save me.
Don’t stare, don’t glare, don’t heal, don’t mend, don’t take, don’t send, don’t love me.

Nightwatch
geschrieben von Sara Quin

I’ve got grounds for divorce.
It’s in my blood this divorce.
I seperate everybody, I need distance from your body.
Oh I deserve this anguish on my house.
So get away, you cannot follow me.
I get away, you cannot follow me.
I’ve got grounds for recourse.
Your lungs fill with discourse.
You seperate from my body, you need consistence from somebody.
Oh I deserve this angusih on my house.

Alligator
geschrieben von Sara Quin

Sensitive, it’s true, alligator tears cried over you.
Run around on me, I’d sooner die without.
Run around on me, die without.
Relentless, yes it’s true, my motormouth runs over you.
No hissy fits, mind my manners, won’t make a scene over you.
Rattled yes, it’s true, alligator tears spilled over you.

Paperback head

by Sara Quin AND Tegan Quin

You have to become what you fancy.
Paperback head, you get carried away.
Stitch up your spine to keep the suitors away.
Must draw your own aid.
Must sift your affairs.
Must frame up a material girl.
Wild fires, you must remit.
Can’t stand the smoke, pull the sheets down low,
Rope up your mind, keep the suitors in line.
I gasp, like sugar and spice,
Who better than you?

The ocean
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

When you wake what is it that you think of most?
When your bed is empty do you really sleep alone?
If I imagine you, body next to another.
All around me new love and it makes me sad.
All around me feel assured that you’ll be back,
If I imagine you, body next to another.
Stop crying to the ocean, stop crying over me.
Stop worrying over nothing, stop worrying over me.
So it’s been so long since you said,
Well I know what I want and what I want’s right here with you.
On the drive back here I was worrying over nothing.
On the drive back there tears spilling over something.
When I imagine you, body next to another.
In the door and you’re there and you’re sorry for the fright.
In the door, can I hear you saying you don’t wanna fight
When I imagine you, body next to another.
In a flash it’s back to you, just brought attention to the mess.
In a flash you’re on top begging me to understand.
If I imagine you, body next to another.
You drop in for a minute and I’m sorry that I didn’t drop in sooner
just to see you and see what you’ve been doin’.
If I imagine you, body next to another.

Sentimental Tune
geschrieben von Sara Quin

You in a simple gray coat in a simple white room.
Oh now you know you know it now.
And so now you know you know it now.
You hate the tenderhearted torch song.
You catch a flame to my sentiment, my sentimental tune.
Hard-hearted don’t worry I’m ready for a fight.
Unnerved, the nerve, you’re nervous, nervous that I’m right.
Now with your cause and affection on my mind,
I won’t yield, throw caution into the blaze.
Watch, with a bit of friction I’ll be under your clothes.
With a bit of focus I’ll be under your skin.

Someday
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

They yell speak up.
I fill these pages like I fill those spaces with my lies.
They yell step down,
A crowd’s not worth this and love’s not worthless, you’ve got to step up stranger.
Might paint something I might want to hang here someday,
Might write something I might want to say to you someday,
Might do something I’d be proud of someday.
Mark my words, I might be something someday.
They yell right on,
A class act president, you are my boss,
I am confident in your eyes.
They yell move up,
Don’t stand back here and wait like an animal at a farmer’s gate,
Am I food or am I free?
So speak up this is your last chance my friend,
Roll the windows down and take me in.
Reach out say what you’re really about.
Are you coming here or not, are you coming out?
I don’t want to know that you don’t want me.
I don’t want to know what you do without me.
I don’t want to know what I’ll be without you.
I dont wanna know. I don’t wanna know.

The Con

I was married
geschrieben von Sara Quin

I married in the sun.
against the stone of buildings before you and I were born.
into my heart confusion grows against;
the muscles fought so long to control against the pull of one magnet to another.
now we look up in, into the eyes of bullies breaking backs.
they seem so very tough, they seem so very scared of us.
I look into the mirror, for evil that just does not exist.
I don´t see what they see. try to control the pull of one magnet to another.

relief next to me
geschrieben von Sara Quin

I miss you now, I guess I should have missed you then.
my body moves like curtains waving in and out of wind,
in and out of windows.
I can´t untangle what I feel and what would matter most.
I can´t close an eye, can´t close an eyelid.
now there´s just no point in reaching out for me.
in the dark, I´m just no good at giving relief.
in the dark, it won´t be easy to find relief
and I´m not proud that nothing will seem easy about me.
but I promise this, I won´t go my hole life telling you I don´t need.
I´ll tell you now, I guess like I should have told you then
that thunder moves like damn drawers slamming in my frame,
slamming in my framework.
I can´t untangle what I know and what should matter most.
I can´t close an eye, can´t clos an eyelid.
now there´s just no point in reaching out for you.

the con
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

I listened in, yes I´m guilty of this, you should know this.
I broke down and wrote you back before you had a chance to.
forget forgotten, I am moving past this, giving notice.
I have to go, yes I know that feeling, know you´re leaving.
calm down, I´m calling you to say I´m capsized, erring on the edge of save.
calm down, I´m calling back to say I´m home now and coming around,
I´m coming around.
nobody likes to but I really like to cry. nobody likes me, maybe if I cry.
spelled out your name and list the reasons. faint of heart don´t call me back.
I imagine you and I was distant not insistant.
I followed suit and layed out on my back, imagine that.
a million hours left to think of you and think of that.
encircle me I need to be taken down.

knife going in
geschrieben von Sara Quin

if I don´t recover, sell this house and find something lost outside your window.
not forever. on the night I die I swear I´ll sleep outside your window.
I feel the knife going in, I´m feeling anxious.
not enough to kill me, I thought it´d happen fast.
but i´m feeling it now and I feel anxious. sleeping inches from me, I let it pass.
emy should I stop? do you think i´ll make it to the morning if it´s ritten?
stitch it up. the kind of song I know cause mother, sister, lover worry.

are you ten years ago
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

taken I am yours, I´m up and doing circles.
I collapse.
I might stay out longer then, I left a light on for you then.
if you show you show. when I feel like this, when I get so into myself,
I lose track of where I´m going then, lose track of how to get going again,
feel myself slowing down feel myself turning around, is this taken?
when I feel like this, when I get so sick of myself,
where are you going then, without me and not knowing then,
that we´re slowing down, you´ve got to turn right around
and tell me that I´m taken then, tell if I´m yours.
you collapse.
the prssure of this life is so you can´t be held accountable.
if you go you go. when you act like this, when you geht so into yourself,
I lose sight of common goals and letting go, so I can be all alone.
feel myself going slow, feel myself letting go. not taken, not feeling like i´m yours.
taken I am yours, I´m up and doing circles.
I collapse.
this life looks like a sentence, thought a constant game of falling short.
if you know you know. when I feel like this,
when I´m just so sick of feeling less than perfect.
isn´t right for me, I never fight to see if coming clean would get to me.
I feel myself holding back, I feel the pressure it´s finally back, I´m taken.
when you felt like this, when you saw it all come crashing down.
subtle but not underground, I was there I saw the signs
I saw unfair and so I wrote to you through other means.
I let myself finally feel taken, like I was yours.

back in your head
geschrieben von Sara Quin

build a wall of books between us in our bed.
repeat, repeat, the words that I know we both have said.
relax into the need, we get so comfortable.
remember when I was so strange and likeable?
I just want back in your head.
I´m not unfaithful but I´ll stray.
when I get a little scared, I run, run, run.
when I jerk away from holding hands with you,
I know these habits hurt important parts of you.
remember when I was sweet and unexplainable?
nothing like this person, un-loveable?

hop a plane
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

I look the train back, back to where I came from.
I took it all alone, it´s been so long I know.
imagine me there my heart asleep with no air.
begging ocean please, help me drown these memories.
all I need to hear is that you´re not mine.
I´m moving east then, somewhere far away from the sight of my hands,
the sight of me not moving.
you can´t just hop a plane and come and visit me again.
I claim it´s in my head and I regret offering.
you take a second, take a year, you took me out and took me in
and told me all of this and then you take a moment, take a year,
you helped me out, I listened in, you taught me all of this and then.

soil, soil
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

oh and I´m feeling directionless, but that´s to be expected
and I know that´s the best.
and in creeps the morning and another day´s lost.
you´ve just written wondering and I reply fast.
all you need to save me.
call and i´ll be curled on the floor hiding out from it all.
and I won´t take any other call.
I feel like a fool so I´m going to stop troubling you.
buried in my yard, a letter to send to you.
and if I forget or god forbid die too soon,
hope that you´ll hear me, know that I wrote to you.
all you need to say to me

burn your life down
geschrieben von Sara Quin

tell me that you know another way to get it done.
it´s not me, or how I would be, but it´s a different situation.
you lay awake in the night just staring at the ceiling above.
pulling pieces of it out, it´s such a waste of time.
keep on fighting to remember that nothing is lost in the end
when you burn your live down.
get me to the door, out of bed or on to track, I´m not sure.
starting over, it´s a different situation.
you wake up in the night and refuse to be afraid of it now.
unfolding pieces of it faster, don´t you waste your time.
you´ve been planning to remember this, so nothing will be lost in the end.
then you burn your life down.
I drive around the block and I´m not looking to my right.
I feel the glass against my cheek and I can´t see you in the light.
I break my heart around this.

I was nineteen, calling.
I felt you in my life before I ever thought to,

I want to draw you a floorplan of my head and heart.
I want to give directions, helpful hints, what you´ll be looking for.
I know I hold this loss in my heart forever.
all eyes are on me now.
I want your lungs to stop working without me.
I think about writing you, I thought about calling you.
what was I looking for? what am I looking for?
I know, I hold this pain in my heart forever.
I shouldn´t go but I can´t really help itwhen I feel this pressure.
I shouldn´t go when I feel this building

pull your hands inside of you, six years till I´ll be through.

dark you can´t come soon enough for me.
saved from one more day of misery.
everything I love get back from me now.
everyone I love, I need you now.
don´t forget a million miles from me.
safe, and another day can pass by me.
so what I lied, I lie to me too.
hold out for the ones you know will love you.
hold out for the ones you know will love too.
right to the the edge, I´m barely there.
slow to make my move I´m almost there.
everything I say, I say to me first.
everything I do, I do to me first.

call it off
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

I won´t regret saying this, this thing that I´m saying.
is it better then keeping my mouth shut, that goes without saying.
call, break it off. call, break my own heart.
maybe I would have been something you´d be good at.
maybe you would have been something I´d be good at.
but now we´ll never know.
I won´t be sad but in case I´ll go there everyday to make myself feel bad.
there´s a chance I´ll start to wonder if this was the thing to do.
I won´t be out long but I still think it better if you take your time over here.
I think that´s for the best.

So Jealous

you wouldn´t like me
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

there´s a war inside of me,
do I cause new heartbreak to write a new broken song
do I push it down or let it run me right into the ground
I feel like I wouldnt like me if I met me
well i cant stop talking for fear of listening to unwelcome sound
and you haven´t called me in weeks
and honestly it´s bringing me down
I feel like I wouldnt like me if I met me
I feel like you wouldnt like me if you met me
and don´t you worry there´s still time
theres nothing to live for when im sleeping alone
and I wash the windows outside in hopes
that the glare will bring you around
sunshine is days away
I wont be saved
I know all the words
I can´t say that I’ll love you forever
I won´t say that I’ll love you forever

you plead with me, shout, scream, tell me I’m staying

back from the last place that I wanted to fake you
laugh with me, shout, scream now tell me you’re staying
I know I know I know, you’re still my love
the same as I love you, you’ll always love me too
this love isn’t good unless it’s me and you
box after box and you’re still by my side
the weather is changing and breaking my stride
I know I know I know, it’s just this day
house after house, just like car after car
you see club after club and it all seems so far
I know I know I know what else are we here for
the same as I love you, you’ll always love me too
this love isn’t good unless it’s me and you
stick your hands inside of my pockets
keep them warm while I’m still here
tell them this love hasn’t changed me, hasn’t changed me at all
last night I was writing about you
I know my screaming and shouting won’t keep you
I know I know I know, you’re still my love
I wake up to the sound of you working
you’re one room right over, stressing and loving me
I know I know I know, be still my love
the same as I love you, you’ll always love me too
this love isn’t good unless it’s me and you
stick your hands inside of my pockets
keep them warm while I’m still here
tell them this love hasn’t changed me, hasn’t changed me at all
stick your heart inside of my chest
keep it warm here while we rest
tell them this love hasn’t changed me, hasn’t changed me at all
the same as I love you, you’ll always love me too
this love isn’t good unless it’s me and you

where does the good go
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

where do you go with your broken heart in tow
what do you do with the left over you
and how do you know, when to let go
where does the good go, where does the good go
look me in the eye and tell me you don’t find me attractive
look me in the heart and tell me you won’t go
look me in the eye and promise no love’s like our love
look me in the heart and un break broken, it won’t happen
it’s love that breaks the seal of always thinking you would be
real, happy and healthy, strong and calm, where does the good go
where does the good go, where do you go
when you’re in love and the world knows
how do you live so happily while I am sad and broken down
what do you say it’s up for grabs now that you’re on your way down
where does the good go, where does the good go

would you give all your love for a run at the past with me
I know you’re sad even though you say that you’re not
I know you’re scared even though you say that you’re not
I won’t get mad when you say things are getting too hard
I won’t make all of your love so scared to come through our yard
I won’t scream in my head and let it isolate me
I won’t be left dancing alone to songs from the past

but then theres you, telling me I can
but then theres you, screaming say something
I want the ocean right now, I want the ocean right now

I get so jealous, that I cant even work
there I am in the morning, I dont like what I see
I dont know how, it´s become such a problem
keep you up all night if I, try to remain calm
how can they ask why I feel so angry,
do you see my problem, if I never explain it
but then theres you, asking how long,
say something, its taking me so long
I want the ocean right now, I want the ocean right now
I get so jealous, that I cant even work…

speak slow

I dont wake up for you
would you like the company
or are you sick of me
when your love lets you go, you only want love more
even when love wasn’t what you were looking for
speak slow tell me love, where do we go?
break down and plead your case,
I don’t know what to say
I leave my heart all this pain
and now I’m at it all again
on these streets that I leave
for weeks on end
who´s to blame
when you want love doesn’t matter what you’re looking for
speak slow tell me love, where do we go?
I’m so far away and I just can’t see you
I’m so far along and I don’t just need you
I am so alone
when your love lets you go, you only want love more
even when love wasn’t what you were looking for

are you alright

can you get me off your mind
I hated this city, before you came here
so let go, and move on
we’re strangers, we’re not friends
I hate this and I hate them
this city’s exhausted and it’s wound up,
soon to be a place just filled up
and I found out that you’re angry
and you’re sorry you ever met me

I can stand up straight
are you alright

You went away

geschrieben von Tegan Quin

you went away
cause you said that you can’t stand me
so I went away
I was sure that you can’t stand me
well I don’t think we have to be like this forever
is there more to life than love and being together?
you went away
cause you said you couldn’t love me
I went away
cause all I do is love you
well I don’t think we have to be like this forever
there’s more to life than love and being together
when my loud guitar comes in
my thumpin‘ drums come through
when my loud guitar comes in
my thumpin‘ drums come through
my loud guitar comes in
my thumpin‘ drums come through
well I don’t think we have to be like this forever
there’s more to life than love and being together
there’s more to life than love and being together
is there more to life than love and being together?

City

geschrieben von Tegan Quin

I cried so hard that you pushed me further away
I screamed so loud you called the police on me
I got so city girl on you
I get so sad that sad gets to be
so scared that all my feelings
they up and leave me
I got so city girl on you
I go so crazy I don’t know what to do
Ooh, ooh
I look so long
I get obvious I look so hard
I look obvious I work so much
I miss the sun shine away
I sleep so little
watch the stars fade into day
I get so city girl on you
I go so crazy I don’t know what to do
Ooh, ooh
I get uncertain
promise I’ll be perfect from now on
but all my promises
they’re out the window once you’re gone
you pack your bags
you say I love you but I cannot stay
so I started smoking
thought the signals
would scare your wolves away
I got so city girl on you
I went so crazy I didn’t know what to do
I got so city girl on you
I went so crazy I didn’t know what to do
Ooh, ooh
I cry so hard that you push me
further away
I scream so loud you call the
police on me
you pack your bags
you say I love you but I cannot stay
so I started smoking
thought the signals
would scare your wolves away
I got so city girl on you
I went so crazy I didn’t know what to do
I got so city girl on you
I went so crazy I didn’t know what to do

Not tonight

what will bring me home
what will make me stay, stay

what will make me stay, stay
well I don’t know
I don’t know, ooh

Under Water

geschrieben von Sara Quin

underwater I wrote drowning
I use to be such good, good swimmer
but for now my head is in the clouds
I’m a silly love song
a twisted elbow crush song
I would go to jail with only boys
just to prove I was as tough as you
and when I get out for good behavior
I’ll be writing love songs
silly banging knee songs
I’m a car crash
but I have to get up
and every morning it’s a clean up
all I need is time, time to love you
the forecast is grey
but we’re staying inside
you must live close
I’ve seen you drive by
I left signs on the lawn
where have they gone?
did you take them to tease me?
to follow or lead me
you’re a silly love song
a verse chorus and such
some silly love song
a verse chorus and such
I’m a car crash
but I have to get up
and every morning it’s a clean up
all I need is time, time to love you
all I need is time all I need is time
all I need is time, time to love you
all I need is time all I need is time
all I need is time, time to love you
baby all I need is time, time to love you
time to love you

I hear noises

geschrieben von Tegan Quin

I am dissapointed
every morning that I wake up
I am dissapointed by the feeling
of waking up next to you
you call me up let me know that
that my sick guilt is so unwelcome
it’s so unwelcome
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness in your voice
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness inside you
my health is failing me
so I flip on the television
and watch sad movies
and look for sad sick people like me
call me up and let me know that
that my sick guilt is so unwelcome
I’m so unwelcome
I’m so unwelcome
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness in your voice
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness inside you
we could go
we could go through the front door
we could go
we go in through the front door
we could go
we go in through the front door
we could go
I come in through the front door
through the front door
And the pills they will not
will not will not
will not let me go
and I will not will not
will not let you drink yourself alone
call me up and let me know that
that my sick guilt is so unwelcome
you’re so unwelcome
you’re so unwelcome
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness in your voice
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness inside you
I hear noises in the darkness
I hear sadness inside you
I hear sadness inside you

Living room

geschrieben von Tegan Quin

my windows look into your living room
I spend the afternoon on top of you
I wonder what it is
that I did to make you move in
across away from me
I hope I never figure out
who broke your heart
and if I do, if I do
I’d spend all night loosing sleep
I’d spend the night and I loose my mind
well I’d spend the night and I’d loose my mind
my windows look into your bathroom
well I spend the evening watching
you get yourself clean
I wonder why it is
that they left this bathroom so unclean
so unlike me
I hope I never figure out
who broke your heart
and if I do, if I do
I’d spend all night loosing sleep
I’d spend the night and I loose my mind
I’d spend the night and I loose my mind
I’d spend all night loosing sleep
I’d spend the night and I loose my mind
if I spend the night then I loose my mind
well I hope I never figure out
who broke your heart
and baby if I do
well I hope I never figure out
who broke your heart
baby if I do
well I’d spend all night loosing sleep
I’d spend the night and I loose my mind
if I spend the night then I loose my mind
spend all night loosing sleep
I’d spend the night and I loose my mind
if I spend the night then I loose my mind
spend all night losing sleep
I’d spend the night and I loose my mind

Terrible Storm

there was a terrible storm
and you were wearing all our coats
in the back of this car
I feel like I have traveled nowhere
we burried in the snow
I kept warm inside of your clothes
you swore that nothing would ever change
the way we were right then
it was a colder a night
bought a hotel I
I thought you would never
find another love again
oh but you haven’t missed a thing
no you haven’t missed a thing
no you haven’t missed a thing
no you haven’t missed a thing
there was a terrible storm
and you were wearing all our coats

I’m sure you know the same for me
when you creep up and tell me
darling
It breaks my heart each time you
darling
you break my heart each time you
you slip your hands inside my pockets
tell me nothing else would do
without me you can’t live and
you slip your heart into my chest
they both become one of the strongest pairs
when strangers come
and darling
this thing that breaks my heart
and darling
you break my heart each time you

this thing that breaks my heart

the first

stand up sit down baby
gonna be a formal dress down hey day
we decide why not go downtown
how about you and me we go get wasted
you’ll have, you’ll have to excuse me
please please, please excuse me
you’ll have, you’ll have to excuse me
this will be my first time
by definition from grade school to English 30
we quietly become strong so early
take it or leave it they can’t believe it
they go from kindergarten to killing sprees
they go from heartache to inner peace
100 foot ceilings 100 percent deceit
he said let’s leave this between you and me
my cats watch my stuff leave my house
between you and me the cat burglars are
what did you see what did you steal
tell me baby how does it feel
yeah how do you feel
it’s a top ten list of the things that move me the most
it’s a top ten list of the things that bother me the most
a top ten list of the things that scare me the most
I’d have to say that the future
wasting time in the fast food line
I decide to walk the fine line
and celebrate life celebrate death I choose
to celebrate the first
I celebrate the first
we decide to go out walking
the whole time that we’re talking
convinced that we’re living
the whole time that we’re dying
we decide to go out walking
the whole time that you’re talking
convinced that you’re living
the whole time that I’m dying
keeps me on my toes where did the time go
you keep me on my toes where did the time go
on the edge of town where the gravel’s thin they’re
gonna wear you down
until you’re thin and tired tired tired
of wasting time in the fast food line
I decide to walk the fine line and
celebrate life celebrate death I choose to celebrate
the first to come the first to go the first to say yes
the first to say no
I’m gonna seize this moment
the first to come the first to go the first to say yes
first to say no

pools out back waters so cold there’s not much
said that I don’t know
the difference between frozen hands and feet
you come right out and you ask me
nobody ever asks me
in the pool out back water to my chest
towel lying in the grass
it looks a lot worse than it seems but you know baby
that’s just me
we can only hope that it might be me
it’s not far to go you’re not far at all
and darlin darlin darlin darlin yeah
looking for a laugh wanna stop back when you’re
done whining and taking things back
I’ll be there as always feet submerged
and probably frozen
we can only hope that I’ll be frozen
enough of that as if I care as if I need to know
like I was there
but if I was you just call my name call my name
and I’ll be there if you call my name
you know I’ll be there
imagine you’re so far away no matter what you do
no matter what you say
you couldn’t stop the world for a moment
in the middle of good-bye
you stop in to say hi is it all right if I say hi
it’s not far to go it’s not far at all

hype
geschrieben von Sara Quin

one time in your life
you’ve got the route in hand but the map is stuck
they said it’s
not your fault the tires are tired the camera moves
and your driver’s been pulled
and I, I have always felt this
and I, I could never hear it
so I turned it up and turned it on
and turned it down
always the volume always the words
review the press and tell it like it is
your life is hype, your love is hype
and I will clench my own fist
and I will always wait
there’s more there’s more than blood that beats
through my heart
my hands my feet stuck between my tongue
and my teeth
we don’t know so we wait for tomorrow
we don’t know so we wait for tomorrow
we don’t know so we only go forward
two times in your life you will trace the edge
sink your toes in
review my press and tell it like it is
my life is hype my love is hype
and I, I will clench my own fist
and I, I will always wait
I’d wait up all night for you

my number
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

showers pounding out a new beat
I trade my old shoes for new feet
I grab a new seat
I don’t like the one I got the fabric’s wearing through
and it’s wearing me out
you’re wearing me down
watching old baseball games and low budget telethons
ain’t like watching you yourself when you yourself is on
got time to wander to waste and to whine
but when it comes to you
it seems like I just can’t find the time
so watch your head and then watch the ground
it’s a silly time to learn to swim when you start to drown
it’s a silly time to learn to swim on the way down
if I gave you my number would it still be the same
if I saved you from drowning promise me you’ll
never go away
promise me you’ll always stay
closed down the last local zoo
I’m gonna win the endless war
over who kills the last koala bear
and who in death will love him more and I
he grabs me by the hand
drags me to the shore and says
maybe you don’t love me
but you’ll grow to love me even more
and I well I’m not surprised

all you got

oh yeah all you got/ is me
oh yeah all you need is me
her confusion is in the night that I stumbled
it’s in the morning that I that I struggled
because I start to forget but she will always remember
the kind of girl who laughs and says
get up off your knees

I don’t do no sing alongs
with my freedom from the mighty sky
to the ground she said
you’ve got the freedom baby
walk out if they drag you down
standin‘ on the edge of a crisis
we decide to raise our own voices
consider that the sounds is our own and the fact
our feet grow up from the ground
this is where I wanna be
this is who I wanna be
so they get my voice
but they can they can never get my soul yes
there’s a million things about me you will never know

I can’t believe I’ve let you in and now here I am
telling you that I’m suffocating in here

from the liquor stores to the train stop floors
your filthy room your drama blues
I am nothing if I’m not with you
I’m always right always wrong
dressing bad is like loving you
there is nothing I haven’t worn
nothing I haven’t said before
your fluid is thick against my sheets
when you look at me
oh so angry I know it’s true
my strength has come from loving you
behavior I just can’t grow into
so you fake and you flaw for your cops and your cause
it makes no difference to me it’s love that you stole
that you stole
from the liquor stores to the train stop floors
your filthy room your drama blues
I am nothing if I’m not with you
I’m always right always wrong
dressing bad is like loving you
there is nothing I haven’t worn
nothing I haven’t said before so here I am
around this world will I be enough?
this is nothing I haven’t said before
you are nothing I haven’t felt before

time to get a real job you gotta stop having fun
so I got a real job I’m working nine to nine
I’m making five bucks an hour ‚til the day I die
got a straw inside of me and it’s filled just fine
got a straw inside of me with the strongest wine
I’m one third passion I’m two thirds pride
said I used to have a life once
he said I used to like your smile once
singing silence to the world
but the stars kept marching
he said silence to everyone I said I’m still talking
have you got some more deep inside of you
I’ll always have more for me
I take a little more for me baby
I got a picture of the way the world has summed me up
if I could have one wish I sure wish that
I had never grown up
I got a picture of the way I looked when I was three
I came out laughing screaming dancing
I used to be free spirited
now I’m just free of sleep
I got a burning passion in my throat
I got a burning passion inside me
I got a job that wastes my time and gift
I got a life that needs a serious lift
and all the things I wanted
yes all the things I want
go on and on and on and on
on and on and on and on
well I go on
silence to the world but the stars keep marching
silence to everyone but I kept talking

superstar
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

Dignified in what she does when she sings
the smile that she brings to all of you unaware
of what’s to come I said tell me what’s to come
green is the color of my envy
it’s the color of fame
so I’m gonna write it down to scream it out
and I’m never gonna be the same again
fear is the color you’ve all exposed
now I gotta get up here
and prove the importance
of my clothes of my pose I suppose again
hard core superstar by far you’re the ultimate star
do you wanna be a superstar
well that’s what you are
you’re gonna be a star
do you wanna be a superstar?
clever in what she does competing for the attention
of those people that you know
my whole life revolves around
your absence until I can’t remember
what I was or what I am
who I know or what I know or where I go
every moment was that moment
every day was that day
every second was that second
and I’ve lost myself again
soon my face will be on every magazine
and then my voice
will be on every frequency
take my heart while you’re at it why don’t you
sign me up to sell me out
I am my angel ‚til death I do I saw my first angel
and it was you

Under Feet Like Ours

divided

go downtown to catch the early movie
the shows are cheaper there
and they don’t mind if you put your feet up
she’s out on the highway
she’s got a homemade sign it says
go ahead and try to figure out what my future looks like
I don’t wanna live my life like a story
I was thinking I could’ve been something
don’t run along side and control me
just film away and let me be
at ease, I feel fine
I’ll move on, I’ll go on
there’s something so divided
don’t worry about me I’ll be fine
don’t live your life for me or for anyone
you Live your life as if you’re one
you Live your life as if you’re one
find quiet, it’s awful quiet
how can you be mad we just got started
I want to shave my head and lie in bed all day long
how can you be mad we just got started
live your life as if you’re one
live your life as if you’re one

our trees
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

there is mass confusion in the forest
I heard it on the radio
and they’re bringing in some guy
and he is gonna go on about all the things he don’t know
and there’s some girl in the background
screaming something about missing trees
and I’m wondering where did they go
no lines on the highway
no passing they say
no green to my left
and no green to my right
and the man behind the axe always gets a full meal
cause green never puts up much of a fight
so here’s some helpful hints
some breath assured pints
full of beautiful grace.
so we steal their space
and death comes quickly
so we pull up to our double car garage hideaways
and we start to say
where did all the trees go
they moved across the street to grow
where did all the trees go
does anyone know
where did all the lights come from
they say you’re big before you’re small
I’m sure glad i don’t know it all
if the trees could be lions
would they still fall and be tagged
would they refuse to surrender
refuse to be gagged
if the trees had a mother and a father like mine
would they stand up say praise the trees
the trees will be fine
wake me up from this dream
and tell me things aren’t as bad as they seem
and tell me is it so not cool to say
who will save the trees

come on

the vocal fuel of a generation
tell me what my hands were made for
tell me who my mouth was made for
and please don’t be mad at me
you’ll get what you ask for
come on come on come on
so very close to what you had expected
it makes it hard to keep my head up level
tell me I’m what your hands were made for
tell me I’m who your mouth was made for
and if you come down on me
well you’ll get what you ask for
come on come on come on
I, I want to get myself back
high I want to get myself back
all of the things that you promised me that you’d be
now your hands are tired
and all of the things that you promised me
that you’d need
now my hands are tired
come on come on come on

freedom
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

shoulders of perfection let them drag you
straight across and tell me
have we found perfection are we finally lost and
I’m staring from a distance
why don’t you come get a closer look
I can guarantee that lickin‘ the package
ain’t ever quite as good as
so they’re looking for a new face with a voice to go along
I can tell you right now that ain’t my style
I don’t do no sing alongs
with my freedom from the mighty sky
to the ground she said
you’ve got the freedom baby
walk out if they drag you down
standin‘ on the edge of a crisis
we decide to raise our own voices
consider that the sounds is our own and the fact
our feet grow up from the ground
this is where I wanna be
this is who I wanna be
so they get my voice
but they can they can never get my soul yes
there’s a million things about me you will never know
like they caught me on video
and yeah they caught me on radio yeah
they caught me on video radio stereo
freedom from the mighty sky to the ground she said
you’ve got the freedom to walk out
if you drag me down
you’ve got the freedom baby to walk out
if they drag you down
if they drag you
if they drag you
walk out

more for me
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

had a bad day as bad as they come
time to get a real job you gotta stop having fun
so I got a real job I’m working nine to nine
I’m making five bucks an hour ‚til the day I die
got a straw inside of me and it’s filled just fine
got a straw inside of me with the strongest wine
I’m one third passion I’m two thirds pride
said I used to have a life once
he said I used to like your smile once
singing silence to the world
but the stars kept marching
he said silence to everyone I said I’m still talking
have you got some more deep inside of you
I’ll always have more for me
I take a little more for me baby
I got a picture of the way the world has summed me up
if I could have one wish I sure wish that
I had never grown up
I got a picture of the way I looked when I was three
I came out laughing screaming dancing
I used to be free spirited
now I’m just free of sleep
I got a burning passion in my throat
I got a burning passion inside me
I got a job that wastes my time and gift
I got a life that needs a serious lift
and all the things I wanted
yes all the things I want
go on and on and on and on
on and on and on and on
well I go on
silence to the world but the stars keep marching
silence to everyone but I kept talking
have you got some more deep inside of you
yes I’ll always have more for me
he says all the things I want they go
so I, I take a little more for me

hype
geschrieben von Sara Quin

one time in your life
you’ve got the route in hand but the map is stuck
they said it’s
not your fault the tires are tired the camera moves
and your driver’s been pulled
and I, I have always felt this
and I, I could never hear it
so I turned it up and turned it on
and turned it down
always the volume always the words
review the press and tell it like it is
your life is hype, your love is hype
and I will clench my own fist
and I will always wait
there’s more there’s more than blood that beats
through my heart
my hands my feet stuck between my tongue
and my teeth
we don’t know so we wait for tomorrow
we don’t know so we wait for tomorrow
we don’t know so we only go forward
two times in your life you will trace the edge
sink your toes in
review my press and tell it like it is
my life is hype my love is hype
and I, I will clench my own fist
and I, I will always wait
I’d wait up all night for you

clever meals
geschrieben von Sara Quin

they’re all desperate for love and affection
no they’re desperate for you
and as you sit up there
all sly and sure I wonder
does anyone think as strongly as you do
I’m quite sure we’ll find one another
in a place that’s better then this
a time filled with us and we
send up our shooting stars and comets
yeah we make our little gestures
yes we make our little comments
this song is my anthem
and it makes up my ideas
and who I am as benefitted from
all my cleverly planned meals
all my cleverly planned meals
I’m stripped and vital and I see rules that almost fit
so if I voice my opinion will you stay and sit
and as I stand here screaming in despair
I said yes this is my life
and yes you should care
this song is my anthem
(close your eyes)
and it makes up my ideas
and here I am as benefitted from
(and you’ll free your mind)
all my cleverly planned meals
(you’re free to fly)
all my cleverly planned meals
(just say close your eyes)
(and I will free your mind, you’re free to fly)
hardly happy at all
and I’m ready to take the fall
cause we pay for the stupid things we’ve done we come from
can you sit through this or is it going to be too deep
will you ever use common sense it comes pretty cheap
so if I speak more clearly if I make more sense
will you just shut your mouth
you won’t come across quite so dense
and so close your eyes
free your mind, you’re free to fly
close your eyes
I free my mind, I’m free to fly
I said close your eyes
and may you free your mind, you’re free to fly
I said close your eyes
and may you free your mind, you’re free to fly
she said close your eyes
and free your mind, you’re free to fly
she said close your eyes
free you mind, free to fly
close your eyes
close your eyes
I will free your mind, you’re free to fly
this song is my anthem,
and it makes up my ideals
and who I am as benefitted from
all my cleverly planned meals
all my cleverly planned meals

heavy

| by Sara Quin

an angel kissed my strings
while I slept last night
and her rhythm broke my hunger
and I died a little less
well I just want to get some
get some while I’m still tall
oh, let’s tell the world we’re unheard
we’re unsure we’re unstop
we’re unstoppable
oh Let’s tell the girls to be strong
to be sure to be heard
we want to be heard
and you’re all
you’re all I want yeah all I want
so tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me,
tell me where have you been?
well an angel kissed my hands
while I slept last night
and when I woke up this morning
God, I missed you something fierce
I just want to get some
get some while I’m still tall
oh, let’s tell the world we’re unheard
we’re unsure we’re unstop
we’re unstoppable
oh Let’s tell the girls to be strong
to be sure to be heard
we want to be heard
and you’re all
you’re all I want yeah all I want
so tell me, tell me,
tell me, tell me, tell me where have you been?
fashion isn’t dead
no it’s just inside out
it’s just inside out
she says she needs a priest
wants to get closer to God
I say all I need’s a ladder
I want to touch your sky
you want it all do you want it all?
do you want it all? do you want it all?
and you’re heavy in my heart
you’re heavy in my hands
you’re heavy in my mouth
yes you’re heavy in my day
you’re heavy in my songs
you’re heavy in light
and you’re all that I want
yeah you’re all that I want
yeah you’re all that I want
God you’re all that I want
oh, you’re all I want

welcome home
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

the sun’s rays don’t bother me
no they cast down such a wonderful heat
masking beauty by a terrible fate
if you fly to close and then you turn too late
the night still confuses me
we’d all get tired and have to sleep eventually
regardless of the sun’s demands
regardless if it made much sense
you moved so far that I know how far
and then you got so sad that I, I bought a car
yes I’ll come get you
and I will bring you home
I’ll come get you
and I will bring you home
he sat me down he said he was incomplete
he thinks true love’s gonna get him back on his feet
he said you only find love once in your life
so I guess when you find it you gonna hold it right
you’ll hold it right
it makes no sense
cause there’s no sense in it at all
we all wait around
we wait for you to get tired and fall
as your shadow it resumes in me
yes your shadow it was made for me
she speaks clearly he speaks loudly
I speak only clearly loudly
yes she speaks clearly he speaks loudly
I speak only clearly loudly
ya my shadow well it resumes with me
yes my shadow well it was made for me
she told me love will come once in your life
so I guess when you find it
you gonna hold it right you gonna hold it right
you hold it right
you moved so far that I knew exactly how far
and then you got so sad that I, I bought a car
yes I’ll come get you
and I will bring you home
I’ll come get you
and I will bring you home
I’ll come get you
and I’ll say welcome home

superstar
geschrieben von Tegan Quin

dignified in what she does when she sings
the smile that she brings to all of you unaware
of what’s to come I said tell me what’s to come
green is the color of my envy
it’s the color of fame
so I’m gonna write it down to scream it out
and I’m never gonna be the same again
fear is the color you’ve all exposed
now I gotta get up here
and prove the importance
of my clothes of my pose I suppose again
hard core superstar by far you’re the ultimate star
do you wanna be a superstar
well that’s what you are
you’re gonna be a star
do you wanna be a superstar?
clever in what she does competing for the attention
of those people that you know
my whole life revolves around
your absence until I can’t remember
what I was or what I am
who I know or what I know or where I go
every moment was that moment
every day was that day
every second was that second
and I’ve lost myself again
soon my face will be on every magazine
and then my voice
will be on every frequency
take my heart while you’re at it why don’t you
sign me up to sell me out
I am my angel ‚til death I do I saw my first angel
and it was you
