And in comes that smell again

The one where you put sunscreen on my face

And I start shaking like a child,

Wrapped in a towel again

The one with water dripping down my leg

Hey how long can you stay and play?

 

How long can you play?

How long can you play?

How long can you play?

 

And in comes that song again

The one that you sing softly by the side of my bed

And I can hear it in my head

Play with my hair again

That one with diamond stars and sunny days

Hey how long can you sing and stay?

 

How long can you stay?

How long can you stay?

How long can you stay?

How long can you stay?

 

How long can you stay?

How long can you stay?

How long can you stay?

 

And in comes that dream again

That one where I can never run away

I thought that it would go away

Baby Calf with your head so small

 

Never give you a break in that baby stall

 

The chains are growing tighter all around you

 

Mum was crying for you when they took you away

 

Her shaky brown eyes won’t see the light of day

 

That love is in the past and it's behind you


 

You’ll never know what’s wrong

 

Never know what’s right

 

You’re only good for what you make tonight


 

A couple of punches take you off your feet

 

And you’re trying to stand but your legs are weak

 

You don’t know where you are and what’s inside you


 

You’ll never know what’s wrong

 

Never know what’s right

 

You’re only good for what you make tonight

 

You’ll never know what’s wrong

 

Never know what’s right

 

You’re only good for what you make tonight

I washed away your clothes with all my sadness

This cotton heavy load won’t make it through         

You’ll never see your socks again

They disappeared,  I don’t know when

Gone, the waste that traced me back to you

         

Cause I Lost it in the Laundry, lost and found me

Like I’m living the dream now 

Lost it in the Laundry, lost around me like I’m living the dream now 

Cause you’re gone, I’m not wrong 

It’s the way it has to be

You’re gone

You’re gone 

 

I’m running thin on tight detergent madness

To carry out a load not meant for two

But now you’re clothes are washed away

They’ll never see the light of day

This heavy bin’s not made to carry you

         

Cause I Lost it in the Laundry, lost and found me

Like I’m living the dream now 

Lost it in the Laundry, lost around me like I’m living the dream now 

Cause you’re gone, I’m not wrong 

It’s the way it has to be

 

lost it in the…

lost it in the…

lost it in the…

lost it in the laundry

lost it in the…

lost it in the…

Come up crawling on my floor

So insecure

Trying to pick up the clothes that you wore

 

This day is yours

Step out the door

And look all around to the people that

 

The people that show me 

Harvey High School doesn’t slow me

For all that you know me

Harvey High School doesn’t own me

 

Touch her hair and make her cry

You change your eyes

The weight of a word made her want to go hide

 

They say it's the magic of chasing your dream

He can’t sell your name when you’re playing it clean

 

But people they show me 

Harvey High School doesn’t slow me

For all that you know me

Harvey High School doesn’t own me

 

You don’t own me

You don’t own me

 

Come up crawling on my floor

I’m not afraid

 

But people they show me 

Harvey High School doesn’t slow me

For all that you know me

Harvey High School doesn’t own me

Here you go again, here you go again

I think I’m missing you, something

 

You say you want it to end, but here you go again

I think I’m missing it, something

 

And I ran to meet the doctor up ahead,

Said it’s got to be one of those dreams

Ran to meet the doctor and he said

We’re keeping it down and clean 

 

Here you go again, here you go again

I think you’re missing it, something

 

You follow through now and then, but here you go again

I think you’re missing it, something

 

And I ran to meet the doctor up ahead,

Said it’s got to be one of those dreams

Ran to meet the doctor and he said

We’re keeping it down and clean 

 

And I ran to meet the doctor up ahead,

Said it’s got to be one of those dreams

Ran to meet the doctor and he said

We’re keeping it down and clean

Look at me softly just another time

I don’t need anything but this

Look at me softly and I’ll look at you too

Look at me softly look at you

 

Speak low speak slowly for another hour

Quietly carrying the room

The world goes so silent when you speak up from quiet like my

Ears were made for only you

 

Sing Up Sing Softly and I’ll sing with you too

And that’s all I’ll ever need from you

 

I swear that I know you from another place

One where we’ve gone and left before

Your eyes look so softly so far home in my memory and

I wish I could see them longer soon

 

Sing Up Sing Softly and I’ll sing with you too

And that’s all I’ll ever need from you

 

Never be sorry

Sing Up Sing Softly

And I’ll sing it quiet like you do

 

Never be sorry

Sing Up Sing Softly

Cause softly was made for me and you

I’m coming to the edge and I can hardly even tell you what I’m looking for

Cause every side i’m looking through is filling me with shades and colours that you wore

 

Now I’ve got some faces I belong to

Some eyes to call my name when I’m alone

And when I need somebody to hold onto

Your path of watercolour brings me home

 

I think I’ve been here before 

I recognize these walls

I’ve been here all alone

 

I think I’ve been here before

I think I’ve seen it all

I’ve felt this way before

 

Young and rainy days of blue, the other kids would run, say you’re not old enough

I’d try and put a crate against a fence cause its too tall and I can’t see over

 

Now I’ve got some faces I belong to

Some eyes to call my name when I’m alone

And when I need somebody to hold onto

Your path of watercolour brings me home

 

I think I’ve been here before 

I recognize these walls

I’ve been here all alone

 

I think I’ve been here before

I think I’ve seen it all

I’ve felt this way before

 

I think I’ve been here before 

I recognize these walls

I’ve been here all alone

 

I think I’ve been here before

I think I’ve seen it all

I’ve felt this way before

I think I’ve been here before 

I recognize these walls

I’ve been here all alone

 

I think I’ve been here before

I think I’ve seen it all

I’ve felt this way before

Turn off the light, crawl into the sheets

I stay up thinking and you fall asleep

The smell of your clothes, moonlight on your cheek

Helplessly hoping you’d wake up for me

 

The sound of your breath is like hearing the rain

Your chest full of air and mine full of pain

 

And I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love

Don’t ask, I don’t have it

I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love

It's not like you want it

It’s not like you care

 

And all these things come in time

The sun will break, I’ll be fine

 

Which books are yours, which socks are mine?

When did we let all our laundry combine?

The words that you use, figures of speech

What were you saying and what did I teach?

 

The sound of your breath is like hearing the rain

Your chest full of air and mine full of pain

 

I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love

Don’t ask, I don’t have it

I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love

It's not like you want it

It’s not like you care

 

And all these things come in time

The sun will break, I’ll be fine

All these things…

 

And I’m awake, all at rest

This night is a mess

 

I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love

It’s not like you want it

I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love

It's not like you want it

It’s not like you care

 

And all these things come in time

The sun will break, I’ll be fine

All these things come in time

The sun will break, I’ll be fine

Muddy Water running away

I want to see your eyes in every colour

Hear your voice at every time of day

 

Our shoes are soaked, it’s so hard to take

You know it’s never one without the other

Lying in this river wide awake

 

I can feel you coming closer

Seasons change and we grow older 

I can feel you coming closer

Seasons change and we grow older 

 

Rising up and over my knees

Soon I’m floating higher so much farther

Wondering of the places you could be

 

And though the ground is so hard to see

I never doubt whatever’s fallen under

I never doubt a day of you and me

 

I can feel you coming closer

Seasons change and we grow older

I can feel you coming closer

Seasons change and we grow older 

 

I hear your voice it speaks so clearly

It speaks from 40 miles far away

Muddy Water’s running near me

I feel you closer every day

I hear your voice it speaks so clearly

It speaks from 40 miles far away

Muddy Water’s running near me

I feel you closer every day

 

I can feel you coming closer

Seasons change and we grow older

I can feel you coming closer

Seasons change and we grow older
