BANDAGES FOR THE HEART

1. WE ARE KIDS

If you look the other way - You think all of it will disappear
But I'm sad to say that's not how it works

It's been cold since october, It's been dark all my life
Except for moments that I'm trying hard not to forget

Well, it happened over night, It happened little by little
I was surprised but I knew It all along

We need a recount, We need a recount
We need a second opinion and a judge

I read in a book somewhere - Something like everyone can change
and I wish I could apply it on myself

I've been trying to think twice, And be conciderate and nice
Except for moments that I'm trying hard just to forget

It happened over night, It happened one step at the time
I was surprised, And at the same time I was not

We need a recount, We need a recount
We need a second opinion and a judge

We are kids we can't decide, nonono, We are kids we can't decide
We are kids we can't decide, nonono, We are kids we can't decide
We are kids we can't decide, nonono, We are kids we can't decide
We are kids we can't decide, nonono, We are kids we can't decide

2. YOU ARE BLIND

The lights spell: I miss you - but it's a big city
If I stay at the same place long enough
Sooner or later I'll run into you

The airplane banner says: Marry me
B ut it's a big city
O ver and over I think that it's you
But it never is when I get there

Love is cheap but you are not!

A penny for your thoughts and a million for your love
A penny for your thoughts and a million for your love
A penny for your thoughts and a million for your love, a million for your love

All the graffitti says: maybe i'm the one
But it's a big city

Nobody else will love you like I do
They say love is blind but baby so are you

Freedoms free but love is not

A penny for your thoughts and a million for your love
A penny for your thoughts and a million for your love
A penny for your thoughts and a million for your love, a million for your love

Well, it's a big city and it's full of signs
But you keep missing them, yeah, you keep missing them

A penny for your thoughts and a million for your love
A penny for your thoughts and a million for your love
A penny for your thoughts and a million for your love, a million for your love

3. ALL THE LITTLE THINGS THAT YOU DO

You say nothing feels like the first time and I know it would be quite stupid, hello
I just wanted to levitate up in the sky
Just to get rid of you and the little things that you do

And the little things that you do
And the little things that you do

You are watching my every step so don't except our love to grow bold
I just wanted to levitate up in the sky
Just to get rid of you and the little things that you do

And the little things that you do
And the little things that you do

Everything look so big but oh so small when I look down
But I think that I will stay here for a while even if it grows darker now

I say it ain't gonna work out for us so you see we better just end it right here
I just wanted to levitate up in the sky
Just to get rid of you and the little things that you do

And the little things that you do
And the little things that you do
And the little things that you do
And the little things that you do

4. BANDAGES FOR THE HEART

a hole in your head, a hole in you heart
you're coming apart and its happening soon
there's a special place for broken hearts
there's a special place for your broken heart

where love goes when it dies, where love goes when it dies, where love goes when it dies
and our love will die

Ii never thought something could hurt
more than a dislocated limb but this hurts more
there's a special place in my heart and in it you'll stay
there's a special place in my heart and in it you'll stay

where love goes when it dies, where love goes when it dies, where love goes when it dies
and our love will die

5. I SEE A BRIGHTNESS

this has gone on long enough, and i dont want to fight
im not saying its your fault, you just got to be right

and if you wanna blame someone - (I wanna blame someone)
you can always try me - (already blaming you)
an easy target, i don't mind - (why would you mind?)
as long as were still friends - (were not friends, anymore)

so let me in (let me go once again)
please, let me in (let me go once again)

all the lies (and all the bad talk), we can fix it (we can mend this)
you know i see a brightness and so could you
the silent treatment isnt helping (and the longer we stay angry) it gets worse
I see a brightness and so could you

it doesnt have to be this way, this could be patched up im sure
if we both want it to, we could go back to before

you know i don't like to beg - (and i don't wanna listen)
but our friendship means so much - (a long time ago)
if we just could sit back - (I don't want to talk)
enjoy the moment that's all - (were not friends - anymore - so)

so let me in (let me go once again)
please, let me in (let me go once again)

all the lies (and all the bad talk), we can fix it (we can mend this)
you know i see a brightness and so could you
the silent treatment isnt helping (and the longer we stay angry) it gets worse
I see a brightness and so could you

plans come and plans go - everything looks so small
im thinking about swallowing my pride and picking up the phone
oh, oh oh oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh, yeah, thats just what i'll do, do, do - tomorrow

all the lies (and all the bad talk), we can fix it (we can mend this)
you know i see a brightness and so could you
the silent treatment isnt helping (and the longer we stay angry) it gets worse
I see a brightness and so could you

6. IT'S ALWAYS SUNDAY AROUND HERE

tell me a story
make the ending happy please
put some unicorns in there
and some animals that speak

I dont know where I go wrong
but it always ends this way
the world is full of saturdays
but it's always sunday around here

make all of the flowers
bloom all at once
and make sure that in the morning
the sun light hits my eyes

I dont know where I go wrong
but it always ends this way
the world is full of saturdays
but it's always sunday around here

and while your at it
get me a job
one that pays loads
and one that i also love

I dont know where I go wrong
but it always ends this way
the world is full of saturdays
but it's always sunday around here

the way things are going
I might not come back
I don't want you to miss me
good things never last

and a sundays a sunday, a sundays a sunday
its all for the best and you might thank me some day, sunday, some day, sunday

the world is full of saturdays
but it's always sunday around here

7. SONG IN THE MORNING

you´re pretty in the morning, in the morning light
your hair all messed up and your eyes open like they open for the first time

and I wish this morning could last forever
and it never had to get dark
because I know in the evening the feeling from the morning is all gone

you have left your secrets somewhere
and I have mine on the inside
telling someone everything don´t make it easy it just makes it hard
it's not easy it's just hard

So cmon cmon cmon cmon cmon cmon cmon cmon with me now, cmon with me now

you´re drewling on the pillow
snoring in my ear
I wish you´d never wake up
and that this feeling didn´t have to disappear

I don´t believe in soulmates
and in everlasting love
but I do believe that efter these rainy days
there´s bound to be some sun

The alarm goes off softly
You reach out and snooze it everytime
and most of the times you would be late if I didn´t wake you up
but I always wake you up

So cmon cmon cmon cmon cmon cmon cmon cmon with me now, cmon with me now

8. MY STOP

living is not an option but I guess suicide is worse
and I hate making decisions and I don't want it to hurt
when I talked to the psychiatrist, she merely shrugged at me
said this thing you're experiencing, you're not suicidal

you're just a human being my friend
and everybody feels like you do anyway

but look at me, now look at me
with my hand and feet on the reiling
with my heart all bleed out
I bet you didn't believe me when I said that this was different
when I said that this was different

tell all my friends, it's gonna get a whole lot worse
before it's getting better the skies will look so dark
the hardest part when someone is leaving
is when you never get to say goodbye
tell my mother that anger is just another side of grief
I know it's the hardest on the parents
to outlive their own kid

don't make it look like an accident, don't make it look like an accident
don't make it look like an accident, don't make it look like an accident
don't make it look like an accident, don't make it look like an accident
don't make it look like an accident, don't make it look like an accident

give them someone to blame
i'm trying hard to control myself

but this is my stop, this is my stop, this is my stop, this is my stop, this is my stop, this is my stop!

9. COME BACK SONG #1

I think i know how you feel - you dont think i like you for real
That im only flattered that you show so much interrest in me
And you say i dont ask about you but baby its only cos im scared to

What i know by now drives me insane and if I knew more i'm sure

I could never let you go, never let you go, never let you go, no no no no no no

Everythings perfect with you - is there something wrong with me
Since you went away - I keep asking for how long

Did i give you a reason to stay - will you come back after this song?

I could never let you go, never let you go, never let you go, no no no no no no

Sometimes Ii stop and I think - we're to romantic to manic to dramatic two drama queens
But then Ii stop and Ii think and I think again - that the way I feel when im with you
I havent felt like this for years - i havent felt this ever yet
You could be the real thing - you could be the big thing
You could feel the same for me, You could feel the same for me
and i could never let you go

10. EXCUSES, EXCUSES

the phone was set on mute - that's why I didn't take the call
I was feeling kind of homesick - so I left without saying good bye

you make up these excuses (excuses, excuses)
and hope noone will see (excuses, excuses)
that the biggest liar (excuses, excuses)
in the room is you (excuses, excuses)

no, I really like your food
it's just that I already ate
please write down the recipe
i'll cook this once a week

you keep up with your excuses - you hope noone will see
when you look into the mirror - you see a big phoney

I guess it's that you dont like me
or maybe you're just shy
maybe it's none of the above
maybe you're just a liar

but im sick of these excuses - im sick of all white lies
for once just level with me - its not that hard to say goodbye

excuses, excuses

Verse, chorus: Am C F G

11. WHAT'S WRONG WITH LOVE?

to tell someone you´re in love

THIS NEW YEAR WILL BE FOR YOU AND ME

1. NO MORE LOVESONGS

I’ve had it up to here (now you know)
your stealing and cheating and all your lies
No more chances for you (no no no)
No more chances for you (no no no)

So I follow you around - Not a word from you

you can even hear my heart break

No more lovesongs for you
No more songs at all for you
One day you’ll be alone
And where will I be then – I’ll be gone

I am not invisible, I’m not blind
Everybody can see me cry
Everyone but you (oh oh oh)
everyone but you (no no no)

And so I follow you around - You are laughing now
But I’ll be laughing too (before you know) – and you know

No more lovesongs for you
No more songs at all for you
One day you’ll be alone
And that’s when I’ll be gone – I’ll be gone

No more love songs for you
This is the last time I’ll say

that I ever loved you
But this is the last time I swear
One day you’ll be alone

And there will be no songs for you (no no no)
And there will be no songs for you (no no no no no no)

2. YOU CAN'T SAY NO FOREVER

There are still some things I’d like to say to you
Some things you should see
but since were not that close no more
I’m gonna have to let it be

Although it’s really annoying,
and is bugging me a lot
Im just gonna be quiet,
and maybe you will work it out - but i doubt it

You cant say no forever, no no no,
sometimes you should let it slide, ah ah ah aaaah,
I know I’m not so clever, no no no no,
but you’re not the picky kind

Sometimes when I call you,
I just feel like hanging up
You’re not getting any older
and it never seems to stop

Now if I was you’re boyfriend/girlfriend,
I would tell you all of this
But since we’re not together
I’m not saying anything at all

You cant say no forever, no no no,
you have to let me in, ah ah ah aaaah,
You are really stubborn, no no no no,
but in the end I always win

Badadaaddadaddadaaaaaaa bada da ba da da

3. SO SAD

You say you see a darkness in daylight, so you forget and pause a while
But you never really stay sad, lots of friends and aquaintances
And you wanna be the one whos glad – in everyones company
You say you were once as young as me
Remember what it’s like to be so so sad

If you fall, I’ll welcome you with open arms into the dark night

And I’m a bit like Terrence Hill, I might seem cool but underneath
I am just as scared and sad as you, and if you stay a while and pause you see
I will make you smile and I wont talk
about depressions or about me just you/about depressing stuff like me, just you

If you fall, I’ll welcome you with open arms into the dark night

And if you find what you think that you need, I wont say I know better than you
Cos if you’re really truly glad I wont tell you that it might pass too

And I swear I’ll never tell you to but you should build a house down here you too
And I swear I’ll never tell you to but you should build a house down here you too
And I swear I’ll never tell you to but you should build a house down here you too
And I swear I’ll never tell you to but you should build a house down here you too

4. GO EGO GO

Noone listens to you - But you keep talking cause thats what you do
You need a new dictionary - There are more words than me, me, me, me

So if you got something to say – this is the time
If you got something to tell me – this might be your last chance
You have my attention now babe

So go ahead, go ahead, go ahead, go ahead
I’m listening, c’mon and tell me everything
So go ahead, go ahead, go ahead, go ahead
I’m listening so spit it all out

You can’t be right all the time - You can’t be wrong all the time
I’m sorry for the things that i do - From now on I’ll be friendly to you

So if you got something to say – this is the time
If you got something to tell me – this might be your last chance
You have my attention now babe

Go ahead now, baby don’t be shy, noones blaming you, and there’s no right or wrong
Go ahead now, baby don’t you cry, I will count to 5, and that’s the time you got
Go ahead now, you were right once, I don’t remember when, but it could happen again
Go ahead now, baby dont be shy, tell me everything, just tell me everything

I wish I was far away too

6. MY PLAN

You don’t have to be afraid, it’s getting warmer day by day
and pretty soon the days will all belong to us
You got all year figured out, figured out
You’ve planned each day and every night, every night
This way feelings never have to interfere

so look outside the window and listen to the sound
you just assume your heart is beating but baby…

Someday it will not, someday it will not, no, someday it will not, no no
Someday it will not, no, someday it will not, someday it will not, no no

I know I am in your way
I know what your schedules say
But I’m afraid if I walk away, you’ll be alright
My plan is to be lost, to be lost
To be on time, or late or not, late or not
And every season changing will feel like the first time

but look outside the window and listen to the sound
you just assume your heart is beating but baby…

Someday it will not, someday it will not, no, someday it will not, no no
Someday it will not, no, someday it will not, someday it will not, no no

7. LET'S GET OLD

This could last forever
If forever is a really short time
And we could stay together
If together is far far apart
And we dont have to change a thing
As long as nothing stays the same

If we pause now - no time for sorrow
Lets wait for tomorrow - tomorrow

Lets get old, lets be bold, lets get old - today - in just one day

These reversepills aint working
And where are all the time travellers (from the future)
Shouldnt we have met ourselves by now?
I dont wanna wait any longer

To go back
and correct all my regrets

Lets get old, lets be bold, lets get old - today - in just one day

Everything will be over soon
Time flies when we're having fun
No more fighting, no more fighting
You'll die before I do
Nothing that you do

nothing that you do...
Can make me leave you now

Lets get old, lets be bold, lets get old - today - in just one day

It is impossible to love someone completely
To love someone all of the time

9. (YOU'RE ON MY) FIGHTING SIDE

remember you can count on me
i'm on your fighting side
i'm pretty sure it's mutual
you're on my fighting side too

i'll tell you why it hurts
everyone you love, love themselves more
nothings ever gonna change
noone's ever gonna care
but i'm your silver lining, i'm your silver lining

remember you can count on me
i'm on your fighting side
i'm pretty sure it's mutual
you're on my fighting side too

you threw out the phone
so now there's nothing to wait by
you choose it for yourself
but somewhere where you're not
someone that you never meet
is wondering where you are
now, where are you?

remember you can count on me
i'm on your fighting side
i'm pretty sure it's mutual
you're on my fighting side too

I know your heart is broken
you can't even see the fractions of the shape that it used to be
but it will mend, it will mend now
like the terminator the pieces will come together again

remember you can count on me
i'm on your fighting side
i'm pretty sure it's mutual
you're on my fighting side too

Snow fall in the middle of May
just when you think it's over it just starts again
and you said you would go to months ago
away how come you're still around
there's a time for every season and a band for every sound
so you don't have to wait around for me

I know you have to go but I can't say goodbye
you have to say it first, say goodbye

summer please come early and stay all year long
I need something lasting that won't disappear
and I don't want to wait around for you

I know you have to go but I can't say goodbye

11. WHO WILL BRING US TOGETHER?

Stay away, tomorrow I will be OK
far away, i'll find you on a better day
I think that I like you cause I think that you're like me
and that's really strange because I don't like myself

But when it's a good day I think that i'm OK
but this day today has not been one of those days

It's not that i'm feeling lonely it's also that i'm by myself
Noone likes to be lonely except for when it's lonely with you

So who (who) who (who) who will bring us together?
And how (how) how (how) how long will it take?

All I see are your eyes when your eyes are on me
If you like me then likings not the problem you see
I'm nothing like you and nothing you do can me not like you cause i'm crazy for you
You're nothing like me, you just disagree and that's just what I need to feel complete

It's not that i'm feeling lonely it's also that i'm by myself
Noone likes to be lonely except for when it's lonely with you

So who (who) who (who) who will bring us together?
And how (how) how (how) how long will it take?

I guess that you'll hear this when you get home (oh, but when will you get home)
I know i'm drunk but I still mean what I say (if I can remember it the next day)
im starting to forget just what ive said now (now it's time to go to bed)
oh, and I call you again tomorrow if im not dead by then

So who (who) who (who) who will bring us together?
And how (how) how (how) how long will it take?

12. THIS NEW YEAR WILL BE FOR YOU AND ME

Counting from today, it’s only 29 days ‘til new years eve
And it’s easier to still believe, this new year will be for you and me
But look at all the faces ‘round here, look at all the people ‘round here
The dark is getting darker, and the empty is still as epmty

Some things always stay the same

You know that counting from today, it’s only 19 days of darkness left
And starting from that day, things can only get brighter
But look at all the faces ‘round here, look at all the people ‘round here
The dark will soon be lighter, and all the empty will be filled

Some things never stay the same

This december might be the first
This december might be the first
Not to be the worst month of the year

This new year will be for you and me
This new year will be for you and me
This new year will be for you and me
This new year will be for you and me
This new year will be for you and me
This new year will be for you and me
This new year will be for you and me
This new year will be for you and me
