but just passing time no longer is an option you must re-organize and feed the fire in your belly real love is all it took to bring you back from sleep real pain to know you are still alive real life has shown the truth in everything i told you: there’s nothing here to hold you you have come to despise everyone who adores you so you wave your goodbyes to everything that bores you there’s a whole world outside and you know you shouldn’t buy it but you just have to try it cuz there’s nothing here to hold you real love was all it took to raise you from the dead real pain to know you’re still inside your head real life is all to see the truth in what i told you: there’s nothing here to hold you learning to fly a pair of broken wings but still you’re willing to try cuz there’s nothing here to hold you i’d bring you down when things were good i’d never listen when i should i’d sit and tend my aching heart while making sure that we’re apart i’ll think of you when i’m alone but never tell you on the phone forget to show me who you are don’t forget it i’m the star! oh can’t you see you better believe you will never find a friend like me and every time you raise your voice i’ll be the one who thinks he knows exactly what you’re gonna say and when you do i’ll walk away oh can’t you see you better believe you will never find a friend like me it doesn’t feel wrong when i miss you it defines who i am it doesn’t feel wrong when i kiss you to kiss someone to miss someone can make you feel like you belong somewhere you’ll never find a friend like me silently the morning glides into places where we hide suddenly i’m wide awake from these dreams that i must shake little angels on my shoulder little angels by my side and wherever i will be little angels follow me you will wake up late one night losing sleep but that’s alright stare into the summer sky decisions they can wait awhile you feel better knowing you will always be a welcome guest you feel better tell you why little angels by your side little angels everywhere little angels in your hair little angels in your bed little angels in your head you feel better knowing all the things we said is laid to rest you feel better knowing this there’s no price for second best all i wanted was 2cu shine and to be there when u did  all i wanted was a hand in mine i had a place where it would fit i always wondered what was in your head the way u read my mind always wondered what was never said each and every time a-ha in every word we wrote in every line there was a desperate note we had a contract but never signed i couldn’t get your vote u saw the sadness in these eyes that no-one ever sees the bruises hidden here behind the smile a kind of stiff unease a-ha just when i couldn’t get you out of my mind you start to back away i always wondered baby one more time it wouldn’t hurt would it? all i wanted was 2cu shine you don’t think you can be what i want but hey you should know this you don’t have to change don’t change your face is white and your eyes are pale but hey it’s alright you don’t have to change everything’s allright nothing stays the same it comes and goes in waves no one is to blame you don’t have to change don’t change envelop me darling bring me in i am too centered on myself you are in everything envelop me sweetheart bring me home you live like time is precious i spend too much alone envelop me honey set me free your weakness is a gift my strength my enemy envelop me honey make me safe meet me anywhere take me any place every word is a book unwritten every sound is a song unsung every moment is a picture taken then it’s gone envelop me darling would you please the days are growing shorter and with it comes unease envelop me sweetheart make me whole you say i’m innocent i wouldn’t really know envelop me honey please don’t wait we’ll go away somewhere we’ll tart some other place envelop me honey don’t let go just give me one more chance give me one more go every word is a promise broken every sound is a song unsung every moment is a picture taken then it’s gone you were never sweeter than right before you broke i was never smarter than just before i spoke nothing ever happens just the way we plan all of us unfolding any way we can a hand that hits across the face reads better on the news but the hand that strokes you tenderly can leave a bigger bruise and nothing i can say now will be of any use you were never sweeter than right before you broke i was never smarter than just before i spoke | hits since sept. 6, 2004 | quicktime is required to enjoy video and audio on this site | copyright magne furuholmen | site by sounds like you
