1.
She said to me “If you want to stay, stand still” This cannot be I’d rather jump than chill It’s such a wasted sing-along Heels in Madrid The lights go on and off She finds it sweet I’d rather plunge than fall It’s such a waste, its’ such a waste Oh stand still, stand clear and sing-along Madrid will cheer you up Oh I'm so glad to be back swimming Around this mess of sodden evenings Another week stuck on your answering machine When all I need is half a decade of sleep Heels in Madrid The lights go on and off It’s such a waste, it’s such a waste Oh stand still, stand clear and sing-along Madrid will cheer you up Oh I'm so glad to be back swimming Around this mess of sodden evenings

She sleeps on roofs She's gonna wake up on big balloons She spent last Christmas at the zoo Where she fell in love with a hypnotist She's gonna wake up All she knows is all she likes, when fever spikes All she likes is all she knows, quick on her toes All she knows is all she likes, she will save us If all we have is now Let's kill the sound of failure somehow She stands in line Holding a watermelon gun with her silver trembling hands She took the love and then she gave it back She sleeps on roofs She's gonna wake up

Debussy 03:31
Shall I steal your moves Feed the lies in my blue homesick silver suit A shallow and loud cure Oh you know how to lure me into your sick control If you keep leading While I keep losing it We might last You gave, you took, you made, you cooked And solemnly condemned with due contempt You set the show You praise, you shook, you blamed the crook With quality attempts, with due contempt You set the show Shall I seize your moods Cross the line Fake a truce And besiege your thoughts Your sweet and harmless lust One more risible laugh In my silver suit You’ll shine until it’s easy I’ll back off How subtle and suspicious Your praise of the dawn

She slept in my eyes So no one could watch her sleeping Her glittering gaze, A sparkle in the shady winter A milky moonlight painted the shore When on Sundays she made me run Our wild promises in a mumble When her silence was the only commander The hazy days are over now You never came across as I sat there in disbelief Like that sentimental furniture you always said you'd toss I never slept on floating leaves Oh I bet you did She slept in my eyes So no one could watch her sleeping Her fleeting grace A shade in the sparkling winter Oh she and her do’s and don’ts! Spending Mondays drinking rum While the crooked rain kept falling with thunder We drowned our boozy pain listening to Boxer Her slinky dress is warming up the night Eyes sharp like the blade of a knife And suddenly she’s waving goodbye
