  18. tar1984

    tar1984 write a song, i'll sing along

    dirty pretty things - truth begins.

    "Well you said the pills would sort me out
    Embolden me against the
    Manifestations of fear and doubt
    I just forgot who I used to be
    So now I'm strung somewhere between a dream
    And humdrum day to day routine
    A laurel wreath from the door to my heart..."

    lovely song.

    Reviving this thread for this set of heart-wrenching lyrics. You want sad? Azure Ray have got it in buckets!


    So I'm waiting for this test to end
    So these lighter days can soon begin
    I'll be alone, but maybe more carefree
    Like a kite that floats so effortlessly

    I was afraid to be alone
    But now I'm scared that's how I like to be
    All these faces none the same
    How can there be so many personalities?

    So many lifeless, empty hands
    So many hearts in great demand
    And now my sorrow seems so far away
    Until I'm taken by these bolts of pain

    But I turn them off, and tuck them away
    Until those rainy days that make them stay
    And then I'll cry so hard to these sad songs
    And the words still ring, once here, now gone

    And they echo through my head everyday
    And I don't think they'll ever go away
    Just like thinking of your childhood home
    But we can't go back, we're on our own


    But I'm about to give this one more shot
    And find it in myself, I'll find it in myself

    So we're speeding towards that time of year
    To the day that marks that you're not here
    And I think I'll want to be alone
    So please understand that I don't answer the phone

    I'll just sit and stare at my deep blue walls
    Until I can see nothing at all
    Only particles, some fast, some slow
    All my eyes can see is all I know


    But I'm about to give this one more shot
    And find it in myself, I'll find it in myself

    woah. I bought this. I'd forgotten all about them. Their voices on their best stuff are just gorgeous.

    in a one of those weird twists of time and space I saw their previous band Little Red Rocket play when I was briefly passing through Birmingham Alabama 20 odd years ago ...

    now, where's them CDs
