Afterglow | We are Science | Other Lyrics.


Afterglow

Colour Me
Now I'm sliding, it's intriguing
So young yet too old to learn
That summer is the thirst
The river always runs dry first

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

As the tides they draw and close
And the seasons turn again
Will the moon still wax and wane?
Will you always colour the day?

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

Now I'm sliding, it's intriguing (this is heaven now)
So young yet too old to learn
That summer is the thirst
The river always runs dry first

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven


Tomorrow Never Comes
You're sailing away, to another shore
My heartache today, I can't tell you anymore

And I thought I saw your shadow in the street today
But that was yesterday, oh that was yesterday

With a little courage, in time
You might forgive me
With a little loving, in time
You might forgive me

Believe me I know it's been hard for you
There's never an easy way to let it go

And I dreamt that you were telling me you dreamt of me
But now I'm waking up, I think I'm waking up

With a little courage, in time
You might forgive me
With a little loving, in time
You might forgive me

And I thought I saw your jacket in my room today
But that was yesterday, oh was that yesterday?

With a little courage, in time
You might forgive me
With a little loving, in time
You might forgive me

Close Your Eyes
I see stars above me
But the sky is bare
When will I catch the sunrise?
I could wear it anywhere

I'd like to take you with me
To steal the moon
Then we could bring it back
To brighten up my best friend's room

Close your eyes
Let me take you to the sun
Burning slowly
Held together in the sky

I want to find a rainbow
And paint it black
Then fly the satellite
That landed here this afternoon

Close your eyes
Let me take you to the sun
Burning slowly
Held together in the sky

Close your eyes
And let me take you to the sun
Burning slowly
Held together in the sky

There's nothing missing you can place
Nothing broken you can save
Nothing wounded you can heal

Close your eyes
Let me take you to the sun
Burning slowly
Held together in the sky

Close your eyes
Let me take you to the sun
Burning slowly
Held together in the sky

Close your eyes (altenative or "creamy" album version)
I see stars above me, but the sky is bare
When will I catch the sunrise, I could wear it anywhere

There's nothing left for you to touch anymore
There's nothing missing you can't place
Nothing broken you can't save
Nothing wounded you can't heal

Close your eyes, let me take you to the sun
Burning slowly, held together in the sky

I want to find a rainbow and paint it black
Then fly the satellite that landed here this afternoon
I'd like to take you with me to steal the moon
Then we could take it back to brighten up my best friend's room

There's nothing left for you to touch anymore
There's nothing missing you can't place
Nothing broken you can't save
Nothing wounded you can't heal

Close your eyes, let me take you to the sun
Burning slowly, held together in the sky


Message Personnel
I'm inside, I'm outside
I'm with you, without you
Don't love me, don't leave me
Don't trust me, believe

Embrace me, release me
Deny me, then feed me
I'll own you, then lose you
So distant, so near me


I Wanna Feel the Chill
I, I wanna hear the sound
I only dream of

And I, I wanna feel the chill
of summer love

Make it true
Making you

Oh, make it true
Making you

I, I wanna hear you your voice
Through the darkness

But how, yeah how can I be sure?
You constantly change

Oh, make it true
making you

Oh, make it true
making you

Morning Sun
Try to catch her
coming from the sun

There's an answer
till the daylight comes

Try to catch her
coming from the sun

There's an answer
till the daylight comes

Try to catch her
coming from the sun

Maybe you'll die
In her arms

In her arms

There's an answer
till the daylight comes

Try to catch her
coming from the sun

Did I Imagine You?
When I close my eyes
I can see you reach out to me
In my deepest dream
I can hear you call out to me

Where in the world are you tonight?

Did I Imagine You?
Did I Imagine You?
Are you somebody real?
That I can touch and feel?

Here in my dreams
I'm waiting for you
Just take my hand
I'll carry you through

Now and then it seems
I can hear you climb the stairs
Opening the door
I realise you're not there

Where in the world are you tonight?

Did I Imagine You?
Did I Imagine You?
Are you somebody real?
That I can touch and feel?

Here in my dreams
I'm waiting for you
Just take my hand
I'll carry you through

Here in my dreams
I'm waiting for you
Just take my hand
I'll carry you through

Mo' Pop
You travel through my blood coursing through my veins
And today, the memory like a shadow I can't shake

[French verse]

I confess you've got a hold on me
But I never fall this easily

Your history seems to shroud you like a plague
And you wonder why this thought keeps you awake

I never asked you to step inside my skin
I let you stay here haunting me within

[French verse]

I confess you've got a hold on me
But I never fall this easily

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

Alpha Female
(She's lost)
Words mean nothing now
(She's lost)

She didn't want to conquer you
Another misconception
It tasted strange, she can't explain
But it's all forgotten now

Her fingerprints are on your hands
That's all she's left for you
You just untangled all her words
They're inexpensive now

(She's lost)
Words mean nothing now
(She's lost)

You walked the world
It's almost over now
You satellite escape each day

You've got an alpha female muse
A little introspection
She isn't there to be misused
The shallowest reflection

(She's lost)
Words mean nothing now
(She's lost)


In Winter Chill
When all is said and done
So weak and overcome
So tired of running still
The winter

I look into your eyes
An orchid without sun
Some things you can't disguise
So many people so lonely inside

Waiting
And if all this brings you down
I will be coming round

When useless dreaming comes to an end
Who will carry all your fears?

When all the tears from fury have passed
Maybe love has just begun

Like a faded photograph
A child caught in a storm
Though we will never sleep
The winter

There's lipstick on the glass
The questions left unasked
Two fools who've left the game
Finding themselves without solace again

Waiting
And if all this brings you down
I will be coming round

When useless dreaming comes to an end
Who will carry all your fears?

When all the tears from fury have passed
Maybe love has just begun

Maybe love has just begun




We are Science

We're only science
We're only science ...

Look into my eyes for the last time
Can you read my lips
You're over time

Look into my eyes for the last time
Can you read my lips
You're over time

Substance
Don't rescue me
When I play with with fire
Don't need to know
Is this desire
We hold back words
Our eyes are giving away
Deny the past
We've come to radiate
In need of some substance
In need of some substance
A little's less than nothing
In need of some substance
The sun might set
Tonight could be the night
And if thats the case
You'll get on all right
But there's no point
In spoiling for a fight
Because we're blinded by
The darkest ray of light

You can be replaced
We took all the laws
And threw them away
We're the only ones
Who saw the call "may-day" Held by the throat
With the backs against the wall
The bottom looks like up
When you have got the ball
We're the survivors
We are your rivals
I'm not phased
You can be replaced
You've got the power
To give your cluelessness a voice
Saying loads of nothing
With a lot of noise
Walk down the street
Resentment in your arms
There's somthing free in us
That you despise
We're the survivors
We are your rivals
I'm not phased
You can be replaced
We're the survivors
We are your rivals
I'm not phased
You can be replaced

Performance
Clouded stars that the future will send
And the broken nights that only time will mend
Eternity cannot fade the truth
That nothing is what the hunger is feasting on

Wishing stone
You tore my skin
But I didn't bleed
Tried to steal my thoughts
From in my sleep
Its through, not blue
Its through, not blue
You tore me down
But I'm standing tall,
From over here
You look completely small
Its through not blue
Its through not blue
But now you're bleeding faster,
Bleeding faster.....

Make it happen
How does it feel to know that this is real
How does it feel to know that this is real
How does it feel to know that this is real
How does it feel to know that this is real
How does it feel
How does it feel
We could make these things happen
We could make these things happen

Strung out
Tonight, going to hunt you down
Pulling me through that open door
Inhibitions dissipate
Now the line's disintegrating
I'm too close to the wire
All strung out on desire
But I'm still there
By your side
On your mind
And in your eyes
The sky's might burn out for you
That's something we'll make true
Regrets beckon like they did before
Pulling me through that open door
Inhibitions dissipate
Now my mind's disintegrating
Tonight something's got to give
Pulling me through that open door
Each breath you must hold sure
And don't abdicate on the good times
Somethings got to give.....

I think I love you
I think I love you

Hex
I've watched an ocean
Drying under my feet
And I've scaled the cliff face
Free from gravity
Since we met we've been basking in the summer sun
I think about it every time I turn the radio on
Bah bah bah bah...
People are strange all around me
But you're not strange
But you're not strange
Since we've met we've been basking in the summer sun
I think about it every time I turn the radio on
Bah bah bah bah...
People are strange all around me
But you're not strange
But you're not strange
People are strange all around me
But you're not strange
But you're not strange

Lover
How can we teach what we do not know
How can we shine when we do not glow
We're losing more than we ever found
We're trying to cros uncovered ground
Now I've seen the other side
I've seen things I just can't hide
How can this die when it's never grown
How can we feel what we've never shown
We're losing more than we ever found
We're trying to cross uncovered ground


Other Lyrics

Diving Horses (Recorded with Death in Vegas)

There's not a night that passes by
when you're not on my mind.
Take you over
like a river running through.

Running through you,
Running through you,
Running through you.

Take you over,
let it take you over.
Let it take you over.
Let it take you over.
Let it take you over.
Let it take you over.

We may not be where we want to be. (On my mind)
we may not be where we want to be. (On my mind)
we may not be where we want to be...

Ooh....

It's one hundred miles away,
the autumn time.
It's one hundred miles away,
the autumn time
is one hundred miles away,
the autumn leaves
are one hundred miles away,
in the summertime.
The summertime,
The summertime,
The summertime.


Kill The Pain (Recorded with Slam)

We all need medication
We need to feel lost to know salvation.
I've been the current that wants to drown...
'And i have felt the sky come crashing down.

So come, come and kill the pain
Come and still the rain
Swimming through my veins...
Yeah come, come and kill the pain
Come and still the rain
Swimming through my veins...

You could be the warmth flowing down my spine.
Running off the tracks in my mind.
Yeah I could be the sun burning in your eyes.
Cos I have seen the darkness in
the light...

So come, come and kill the pain
Come and still the rain
Swimming through my veins...
Yeah come, come and kill the pain
Come and still the rain
Swimming through my veins...

Yeah you're the drug i depend on.
Only you make up the air that I could never breathe...
This could be the truth burning in your eyes.
It would radiate in the sky....

So come, come and kill the pain
Come and still the rain
Swimming through my veins...
Yeah come, come and kill the pain
Come and still the rain
Swimming through my veins.


Aftersun (Recorded with Massive Attack)

When I was chasing the fear away,
I forgot to breathe again.
In this moment we shine,
Burn to ember every time.

When I was trying to shelter,
I forgot to rescue you.
In these moments we drown,
Take this rose with thorns to crown.

Every time I fall I am ascending.
Every time you call me near.
Only when we slip the need is ending.
Mirror I am letting go.
When you were trying to save me,
you forgot to let me go.
In this freedom we found,
Raining stars down to the ground.

And with the truth in your hands,
you concealed it with your lies
in this moment we drowned,
lost more than we ever found.

Every time I fall I am ascending,
every time you call me near.
Only when we slip the need is ending
Mirror I am letting go...

I burnt the orchid down
I burnt the orchid down
Hold me now
I burnt the orchid down
I burnt the orchid down


I Wanna break Your Heart (with Pete Doherty)

The pain I brought to you
was so easy to do
and traceless like sand
I slid through your hands.
Iknow you have suffered,
cried tears in my name.
you'll never recover from
my delight in your shame

I wanna hold your hand / I wanna break your heart...
I wanna be your dog / I wanna break your heart...
I wanna be adored / I wanna break your heart
I wanna break your heart

And all that Isold you,
The sin-sealed dealt lies.
You always believed me,
you bought it each time

I wanna hold your hand/ I wanna break your heart...
I wanna be your dog/ I wanna break your heart...
I wanna be adored/ I wanna break your heart
I wanna break your heart

Sweet pretence of love
is my bleak, empty gain
and I pawned it for tuppence
again and again.... oh what a shame.

I can't stand to be near you
and that's one thing you may trust
I've destroyed those dear to you
with my treacherous lust.
Don't wanna hold your hand / I wanna break your heart...
Don't wanna be your dog / I wanna break your heart...
Don't wanna be adored / I wanna break your heart
I wanna break your heart
