Earth is the Loneliest Planet





Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Earth is the loneliest planet of all







Day after day you say "one day, one day"
Day after day you say "one day, one day"
But you're in the wrong place
and you've got the wrong face






And humans are not really very humane
And earth is the loneliest planet of all







Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Live with a lowness that no one else knows
Time after time you say "next time, next time"
Time after time you say "next time, next time"
But you fail as a woman
and you lose as a man
We do what we can






 
And earth is the cruelest place
you will never understand





But you're in the wrong skin
But the skin that you're in is safer
Let it begin
And earth is the loneliest planet of all








Earth is the loneliest planet of all
Earth is the loneliest planet of all








Day after day you say "one day, one day"
Day after day you say "one day, one day"
And there's always a reason why you're refused
They always blame "you, you, you"
And there is nothing anyone can do

The Narcissist






Takes a lot of guts for you to come
Moving to the front, a getaway
Yes I know you’re trying on me







Takes a lot of lies for you to make 
Step into the side or come my way
Cause I know you’re trying on me






Do you recognize me girl?
I phone you every night girl
Don’t recognize me girl
I wanna fold you
Don’t come around my way, 
I wanna fold you







So come closer girl, yeah, oh
Just come






Takes a lot of guts for you to come
Moving to the front, a getaway
Yes I know you’re trying on me
Takes a lot of lies for you to make







Step into the side or come my way
Cause I know you’re trying on me
Cause I know you’re trying on me.

Punk Spirit





I broke the neck of my guitar 
And told you how it's going to be 
And later when you left the room 
I whispered you can f**king die 
And every time your back was turned 
I put a finger in the air 
And every time you turned around 
I hide it cause I know it hurts 






Where's my punk spirit? 
When I need it 
Where's my punk spirit? 
When I need it 






The only thing I've got faith in 
Is clinging onto the ground 
Now every time the plan spins 
I turn myself around 
So rolling out my best white flags 
I'll find new ways to take my pride 
My body's in a body bag, 
I'm still alive. 





Where's my punk spirit? 
When I need it 
Where's my spirit? 
When I need it 




Where's my punk spirit 
When I need it 
Where's my punk spirit 
When I need it

Train Song




Traveling north, traveling north to find you
Train wheels beating, the wind in my eyes
Don't even know what I'll say when I find you
Call out your name love don't be surprised







It's so many miles and so long since I've left you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long







Nothing at all in my head to say to you
Only the beat of the train that I'm on
Nothing I've learnt all my life on the way to you
One day our love was over and gone







It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long







What will I do if there's someone there with you?
Maybe someone you've always known
How do I know I can come and give to you?
Love with no warning and find you alone






It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long
It won't be long, it won't be long, it won't be long

Marseilles Sunshine




The streets are so crowded
But there is nobody listening
Stop for a while
Can you feel your heart beating?
And how my skin calls for you
But these are moments to savor
I'll go take a shower and bathe for a while
In this Marseilles sunshine






Here comes a moment






The pictures I'm drawing
Could hold you 'til sundown
The colors are strong and the marks they spring from
The center of me
These songs are so crowded
Was there a sound from the courtyard?
There's no key for this door, it's always ajar
In this Marseilles sunshine





Here comes a moment

The Hunted








You wandered through the willows, in the forest you were found
Trying to hide your footprints in the ground
It's not so wise, if you try to run







It's not so wise, you know I've won, you know I've won
And you'll smile, on your knees
The Hunter becomes... the hunter becomes the hunted
The Hunter becomes the hunted...








The Hunter becomes the hunted...
The Hunter becomes the hunted...

Milk







I am milk 
I am red hot kitchen 
And I am cool 
Cool as the deep blue ocean







 

I am lost 
So I am cruel 
But I'd be love and sweetness 
If I had you







 

I'm waiting 
I'm waiting for you 
I'm waiting 
I'm waiting for you 








I am weak 
But I am strong 
I can use my tears to 
Bring you home 







I'm waiting 
I'm waiting for you 
I'm waiting 
I'm waiting for you 
I'm waiting 
I'm waiting for you 






I am milk 
I am red hot kitchen 
I am cool 
Cool as the deep blue ocean 







I'm waiting 
I'm waiting for you 
I'm waiting 
I'm waiting for you 





I'm waiting 
I'm waiting for you 
I'm aching 
I'm aching for you 






I'm waiting 
I'm waiting 
I'm waiting for you.

The Space Between



You cannot quit me so quickly
There's no hope in you for me
No corner you could squeeze me
But I got all the time for you, love







The Space Between
The tears we cry
Is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The Space Between
The wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep safe from the pain






But will I hold you again?
These fickle, fuddled words confuse me
Like 'Will it rain today?'
Waste the hours with talking, talking
These twisted games we're playing





We're strange allies
With warring hearts
What wild-eyed beast you be
The Space Between
The wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep safe from the pain






Will I hold you again?
Will I hold...








Look at us spinning out in
The madness of a roller coaster
You know you went off like a devil
In a church in the middle of a crowded room
All we can do, my love
Is hope we don't take this ship down







The Space Between
Where you're smiling high
Is where you'll find me if I get to go
The Space Between
The bullets in our firefight
Is where I'll be hiding, waiting for you
The rain that falls
Splash in your heart
Ran like sadness down the window into...
The Space Between
Our wicked lies
Is where we hope to keep safe from pain





Take my hand
'Cause we're walking out of here
Oh, right out of here
Love is all we need here






The Space Between
What's wrong and right
Is where you'll find me hiding, waiting for you
The Space Between
Your heart and mine
Is the space we'll fill with time
The Space Between...
