Now that you're leaving

Telmavar Records // 2006

1. Slowing Down

 

Now that you're leaving

It's got me thinking

Maybe I'll do a little leaving too. 

Baby believe me

If I could leave me

I wouldn't stay a single second too. 

 

Everybody's slowing down

Everybody's slowing down but us

We're like the bubble before it hits the floor

Maybe we'll break, 

but maybe we'll love each other even more. 

 

But sooner or later

I'll come and waiter

You'll come buying and I'll start the lying all over again. 

Sooner than later

I open my crater

You come a filling and I start the billing back to you again. 

 

Everybody's slowing down

Everybody's slowing down but us

We're like the bubble before it hits the floor

Maybe we'll break, 

but maybe we'll love each other even more. 

 

2. This Cool

 

I don’t know what you want from me.

Still don’t you go, don’t go out on me.

 

All you gotta do, honey, is walk out that door, 

just leave some money for my time.

All you gotta do is listen to this tune

and bleed yourself to sleep.

 

I never wanted it to be this way,

but you and me babe –

we got our own set of rules we play.

I never wanted it to be this mean,

but you and me babe – we got our own conscious to clean.

I never wanted it to be this cool.

 

3. Everybody

 

Everybody wants somebody

A little more than they should

Everybody’d take that body

If Everybody could

 

Everybody makes mistakes

Everybody hides

Everybody’d write these words

If Everybody’d write

 

Everybody needs somebody

To warm them up at night

I guess a blanket’s not enough

When turning off the light

 

Everybody hurts and cries

Everybody dies

Every love cuts deep and cold

And breaks you down inside

 

Everybody’s grass is greener

Everybody else’s wife is sweeter

 

Everybody wears their boots

Until the sole runs dull

And Everybody’s ears are itching

From waiting for the toll

 

Everybody says they’re sorry

And means it from the bone

Everybody never say it

Until they are alone

 

Everybody knows the score

Still want to see the game

Everybody clutch their lives like

Fifteen minute fame

Everybody says they’re sorry.

 

4. Wait For It

 

I’m watching you all the time, watching, looking up at you.

Moving too fast, I can’t keep up, I am falling out of reach from you.

 

Wait for it, hate for the first time, late – forward I go, 

nowhere but forward left to go.

Wait for it, hate for the first time , late – forward I go, 

nothing left for it – I’m leaving home.

 

Driving close to, I might hit you, walk beside me, you’ll be safe.

Do what you want, you believe in, too far gets you close sometimes.

 

Wait for it, hate for the first time, late – forward I go, 

nowhere but forward left to go.

Wait for it, hate for the first time , late – forward I go, 

nothing left for it – I’m leaving home.

 

Walking, crawling, rolling, longing, for two separate sets of legs.

Double ended heart-shaped rows – simultaneous flow.

 

Snakes and ladders, nothing matters but this- 

this feeling, of not breathing, of not kneeling… don’t forget me too.

 

Wait for it, hate for the first time, late – forward I go, 

nowhere but forward left to go.

Wait for it, hate for the first time , late – forward I go, 

nothing left for it – I’m leaving home.

 

5. Baby If You Want Me

 

I know that you ain’t just mine, babe.

I know that you ain’t so good at tying, are you babe? 

I know that you’re always on the run, babe.

I know that you ain’t just fun, that’s for sure, babe.

 

Still, baby if you want me, I am yours.

 

I know that you ain’t just mine, that’s ok babe.

I know that you ain’t so good at trying, are you babe?

I know that you ain’t so fond of roots, babe.

I know I’m a cello, you’re a flute, that’s right babe.

 

Baby if you want me, I am yours.

 

You’re the wind

I’m just grass

I just grow

You just pass

 

Baby if you want me, I am yours.

 

6. Long Way From Love

 

You don’t see me as well as you used to

And you don’t fear me leaving you

 

We came a long way from love

 

Now days when I kiss you , you don’t move your tongue

And now days when I miss you, it’s because you’re gone

 

We came a long way from love

 

Once I was black and you were white, now we’re both grey

Once we used to spend the nights, and save the days

 

We came a long way from love

 

I used to look into your eyes, and I used to see a map

I thought we’d finish this race together, or at least a lap

We came a long way from love
