Lyrics: It´s still the evening of the day We sit and look out cross the bay Let´s just not get swept away In all this subtle disarray This is turnaround town This is turnaround town While we´ve been busy going wrong They tried to steal our every song But this is turnaround town This is turnaround town I just wanna be in this dumb company Cause I don´t think it´s funny to just follow that money Way down the river to where they deliver The goods I don´t need to the swines that they feed cause this this is this is turnaround town.

Lyrics: You hear the wind blowing You see the shops closing too The little cracks are showing everywhere around you And you say oh this is not your home Oh this is not your home You watch the sea rise And it gets into your eyes Well that old college vow You´ve got to make it now And you say oh this is not your home Oh this is not your home So many birds have gone So many cars move on So many broken songs Find you a new one There´s gonna be a new sky and a new town and a new love ahead of you

Lyrics: Walls of love come up when you get close to me You and me, we should stop this in its tracks In the trees the birds they seem to laugh at me Flying up and never coming back They feel this is not real, we`re only trying They know this kind of stuff will just blow up In our faces, in our eyes they just can see it, see it, see it We`re just here to feel like lovers feel And in our hearts we both know we`ll never be it, be it, be it But when we kiss we`re feeling just like lovers What would be if I just kept your hand in mine And grew accustomed to your skin You and me, two soldiers dancing out of line Against the emptiness within We know we might not win, we`re only running But looking round I don`t wanna be at war Cause in our faces, in our eyes they just can see it, see it, see it We`re just here to feel like lovers feel And in our hearts we both know we`ll never be it, be it, be it But when we kiss we`re feeling just like lovers They feel this is not real, and they are right, you know You hear the silence just before the bang? Cause in our faces, in our eyes they just can see it, see it, see it We just came here to feel like lovers And in our hearts we both know we`ll never be it, be it, be it But when we kiss we`re feeling just… And if you stay maybe someday we both could see it, see it, see it Waking up and feeling just like lovers Exchanging rings and planting seeds and then we`ll be it, be it, be it Then let `em laugh cause we`ll be perfect lovers

Lyrics: So you´re planning a fast escape in someone else´s car The engine´s running But your thoughts could never run that far It doesn´t matter It doesn´t matter, no It doesn´t matter where you are So you´ve learned your lesson in the fast repetition of meaningless moves And the wind just draws you backwards How you stick to this magnetic blues It doesn´t matter It doesn´t matter, no It doesn´t matter where you are No, they can´t take that away from you No, they can´t take that away It doesn´t matter It doesn´t matter, no It doesn´t matter where you are

Lyrics: Now the battle´s surely won Tired soldier on the run Satisfaction´s guaranteed Bring me just one thing I need Bring me the head of no one wrapped in gold Find me some shed, nowhere, small and old Now the peace is made for sure And all the doctors know their cures I´m hanging on, I´m conquering on Wait for the day when I´ll feel strong Bring me the head of no one wrapped in gold Find me some shed, some legend left untold Bring me the head of someone that I know Find me a shed in the past I used to know Bring me the head of no one Bring me the head of no one Bring me the head of no one Wrapped in gold.

Lyrics: Here`s my reason, I`ve got no reason, the reason I`ve had has disappeared Love came shining, love came blinding And then it sort of left me here The place goes crazy about some rhythm, hammering till the morning comes A blur of bodies, hands keep reaching, reaching out for anyone So I`m dancing, so I`m mingling, gonna party my heart out in here Here`s my reason, I need no reason, the reason I had has disappeared Love gets lost, the emptiness is full of stars I`m getting dizzy drawing rings around myself Keep up the noise and put a drink in front of me I`m only wrestling with myself Drawing rings around myself So here`s where I am and here`s where I`ll be to take another chance We`re not being loved, just being fucked But hey, come join the dance Love gets lost…. And if I could I`d throw it all away

Lyrics: Someone´s city not mine, that´s what I´m shown Amidst all this construction I stand alone So will we always feel like strays? And will we always count the days? Someone´s city not yours, you can´t get inside It´s not just money or class, it´s a question of pride I recognized the way you came in here tonight This city don´t want you So you don´t want the city alright This city don´t want you So you don´t want the city alright Alright, alright Someone´s city not mine Someone´s city not mine And I could bite my tongue and get close to the bone Till one day I can afford what people call a home But this is Someone´s city not mine Someone´s city not mine
