BE KIND

BE KIND

BRIGHTEN YOUR MIND

BE KIND

QUIET YOUR MIND

SAFE AND SOUND

MOTHER

I AM LISTENING TO YOUR SONG

A SING-ALONG GOODNIGHT SONG

THAT TELLS ME RIGHT FROM WRONG

I AM PUT AT EASE WITH YOU AT MY SIDE

YOU’RE SITTING ON YOUR KNEES

WATCHING ME AS I FALL ASLEEP

SO THAT THE NIGHT WILL BE YOURS TO KEEP

FATHER

I AM LISTENING TO YOUR SONG

FEELING SAFE AND SOUND

FROM THE MONSTERS UNDERGROUND

YOU LEAVE THE DOOR SLIGHTLY OPEN

TO LET THE LIGHT SHINE IN

TO LET ME KNOW THAT YOU ARE HERE

FOREVER TILL I AM FREE

TO LEAVE THE HOUSE

AND BECOME A MAN OF MY OWN

BROTHER

I CAN HEAR YOU DRUM ALONG

WE SHARE THIS SPACE TOGETHER

WE DON’T NEED ANOTHER ROOM

YOU FALL ASLEEP

FROM THE SAME OLD MELODY

I BET YOU DREAM OF THE SAME STRATEGY

ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD WITH ME

PASSING THE BALL JUST TO KNOW

ONE OF US WILL SCORE

SISTER

YOU HAD A BAD DREAM

IT’S THE USUAL CRAB AND SPIDER

BUT IT’S ONLY IN FANTASY

I KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING

WHEN YOU LEAVE YOUR BED

YOU RUN TEN FEET AT FULL SPEED

TILL YOU REACH OUR MUM AND DAD

SO NOW I KNOW ALL THREE ARE

SAFE AND SOUND

DRESS LESS BEAUTIFUL

TRY IT ON

TRY ON THE DRESS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL

LESS BEAUTIFUL

TRY IT ON

TRY ON THE MESS FROM A GIRL

YOUNG AT AGE

SO PITIFUL

TRY IT ON

LEAVE ALL THE FAME

AND ALL THAT COMES WITH A NAME

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

TRY IT ON

TRY ON THE DRESS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL

LESS BEAUTIFUL

IT’S OUT OF CONTROL

HOW THE WORLD HAS BECOME

SO SUDDENLY

IT’S HOW YOUR HAIR IS DONE

AND HOW YOU DO YOUR FINGERNAILS

THAT TURN THEM ON

SO BAD OF YOU

YOU ARE OUT ON THE WEEKEND

LOOKING OUT TO BE FOUND

THERE ARE MISSES PARTYING

‘CAUSE THEIR MEN ARE OUT OF TOWN

YOU ARE TAKING OVER

YOU GOT IT ALL FIGURED OUT

YOU TAKE WHATEVER COMES YOUR WAY

TAKE ’EM HOME CAUGHT IN THE NET

IT’S SO BAD OF YOU

IT’S SO BAD OF YOU

IT’S SO BAD OF ME TO SING ABOUT IT

YOU ARE LEAVING HIM IN PIECES

FROM A TRAGEDY UNTOLD

TELLING ALL YOUR FRIENDS IT IS HIS FAULT

EVEN THOUGH IT’S MORE TO IT THAN SO

YOU LEAVE OUT ALL SOLUTIONS

AND YOU LEAVE HIM IN NO DOUBT

YOU ARE GONNA CARRY OUT YOUR BABY

WHILE DECIDING TO QUIT HIM

IT’S SO BAD OF YOU

IT’S SO BAD OF YOU

IT’S SO BAD OF ME TO SING ABOUT IT

MY BODY

OH MY BODY MAKE IT BETTER

MAKE IT BETTER, MAKE IT BETTER

OH MY BODY JUST BE BETTER

JUST BE BETTER, BETTER, BETTER

RUN THE MOUNTAINS AND RELEASE

THE BURDEN ON MY HEART

I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE

I’M OVER WITH THOSE DAYS

WHEN I COULD BLEED ALL OVER

AND MORE

OH MY BODY YOU CAN DO BETTER

YOU CAN DO BETTER, DO IT BETTER

OH MY BODY MAKE IT BETTER

MAKE IT BETTER, MAKE ME FEEL BETTER

YOU CAN RUN THE MOUNTAINS

BUT THAT AIN’T TAKING THE BURDEN

OFF MY HEART

YOU CAN HANDLE A HEAVY STORM

BUT YOU CANNOT REST MY SOUL

OH MY BODY JUST BE BETTER

JUST BE BETTER, REAL BETTER

OH MY BODY

I NEED A PERFORMANCE OF THE BEST

OH MY BODY MAKE ME FEEL BETTER

MAKE ME FEEL BETTER

OH MY BODY

FAIR GAME

THEY SPEAK OF EVERYTHING

AS IF IT’S HURTING ME

OF COURSE IT PUTS IT ALL IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT

THEY DON’T KNOW ANYTHING

ABOUT WHAT I’M FEELING

IT’S ALL ABOUT WHO’S RIGHT OR WRONG

IT’S A FAIRER GAME

THAT HAS TO BE PLAYED FOR YEARS TO COME

IT’S NOT ONLY THE FOOL

THAT WILL HAVE TO PLAY BY FAIR RULES

THERE’S SOMETHING MISSING

I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS

BUT WHERE ARE ALL THE FRIENDLY SMILES

THEY HIDE BEHIND OLD LIES

I GUESS THEY WILL REVEAL

AND BECOME A PART OF OUR PAST

BUTTON MOULDER’S WALK

(INSTRUMENTAL)

FEELER

FOR TWENTY YEARS YOU HOLD FORT

WITHOUT HER BY YOUR SIDE

NEVER DUST HER BELONGINGS

YOU LEAVE HER SPACE UNCHANGED

YOU LOOK FOR NO COMPANION

TO REPLACE HER COMPASSION

THERE IS NO OTHER FOR YOU

YOU HOLD HER CLOSE AT HEART

ALL THOSE YEARS APART

AIN’T NO GREATER LOSS

THAN TO LOSE YOUR LOVE

YOU FEEL HER

FEELER

IN YOUR FAVOURITE CHAIR TONIGHT

YOU TELL ME ABOUT YOUR LIFE

AND HOW MUCH YOU MISS HER

SHE’S SOMEHOW STILL AROUND

SPENT YOUR LIFE DYEING FABRICS

AND SHE WAS A WEAVER

I HOPE YOU GET TO MEET HER

AND HOLD HER HAND FOREVER

THE FROST

WE LIE WITH OPEN ARMS

IN THE SNOW, IN THE SNOW, IN THE SNOW

WE GROW AND GROW AND GROW

UNTIL WE ARE ON THE SIZE OF SMALL PLANETS

ON A FIELD

WE LET IT FALL ON US

JUST LIKE WE’D LET MONEY RAIN

WE DON’T BOTHER ABOUT THE COLD

WE CAN’T SEEM TO FEEL THE PAIN

IT’S JUST WONDERFUL HOW THE FROST

IS CAPTURING THE LIFE

JUST LIKE AS IF IT IS DEAD

YET STILL ALIVE

WE HOLD THE WINTER DEAR

IT’S FAMILIAR TO OUR MEMORY

AND EVEN THOUGH IT SOMETIMES FEELS

LIKE I WISH MYSELF FAR AWAY

I KNOW IT IS HERE THAT I HAVE COME TO STAY

I’D LIKE TO LIVE A LIFE LIKE THIS

CRAZY

YOU SHOULD DREAM

BUT DEAR NOT DREAM OF ME

I’M IN LOVE WITH SOMEBODY ELSE

YOU TRAVELLED FAR

BUT NOT FAR ENOUGH

IN THIS WORLD

THAT HAS BECOME SO SMALL

WE ARE SOMEHOW CONNECTED

AND SOMEHOW NEVER WAS

AS WE ONLY SPOKE

THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE

YOU KEEP SETTLING

AND I HAVE SETTLED DOWN

REMEMBER HOW YOU TOLD ME

I WAS ALWAYS RUNNING

THE STAKES WERE TOO HIGH

YOU WANTED TO FLY WITH ME

IN THE SKY

FAR ABOVE

PEOPLE OF CRAZY OPINIONS

SO EVEN IF YOU DREAM SWEET DREAMS

OF ME AND YOU

THERE ARE RULES TO FOLLOW

AND YOU SHOULD OBEY THEM TOO

‘CAUSE NOW THAT YOU HAVE DECIDED

TO EXTEND YOUR STAY

I BELIEVE OUR CRAZY DAYS TO BE OVER

THE STAKES WERE TOO HIGH

YOU WANTED TO FLY WITH ME

IN THE SKY

FAR ABOVE

PEOPLE OF CRAZY OPINIONS
