LYRICS:

Track 1

It’s a Pity

Life is the stupidest thing
You love it more than anything
Just when you´ve started your show
Someone says it’s time to go

You just stood there as a little girl
Nice dress on nice curls
Soon you see people turning away
From the smell of decay

Pre-chorus:
And what you did
It matters not
This is the ticket
That you´ve got
And what you did
It matters not
This is the ticket
That you´ve got

Chorus:
It’s a pity
It’s a pity
You wished it was
A little more pretty
It’s a pity
It’s a pity
You wished it was
A little more pretty

Really glad you crossed my way
Really glad you stayed
Really glad you took the time
To hold your hand in mine

Really glad we´ve had this thing
To dance and sway and swing
And as sand trickles down the glass
Give me a kiss before the last

Pre-chorus:
And what you did
It matters not
This is the ticket
That you´ve got
And what you did
It matters not
This is the ticket
That you´ve got

Chorus:
It’s a pity
It’s a pity
You wished it was
A little more pretty
It’s a pity
It’s a pity
You wished it was
A little more pretty

This is the end of your life as you knew it
No one asks for if you blew it
There’s the door and you have to go through it
There’s no turning around and you know it

Of course you wish you’ve had some more pirouettes
Some more solos and fewer regrets
Never mind there might be another round
Never mind there might be another round

Pre-chorus:
And what you did
It matters not
This is the ticket
That you´ve got
And what you did
It matters not
This is the ticket
That you´ve got

Chorus:
It’s a pity
It’s a pity
You wished it was
A little more pretty
It’s a pity
It’s a pity
You wished it was
A little more pretty
It’s a pity
It’s a pity
Even so
It´s quite pretty
It’s a pity
It’s a pity
Even so
It´s quite pretty

Track 2

Letting It All Go

I’m looking I’m looking I’m looking
I´m looking for where to go
I’m looking I’m looking I’m looking
For somewhere else to go

Bridge:
When I get there
I won’t be troubled
When I get there
I won’t be tired out
I will forget all my worries
They will not reach out for me
They will not get hold of me

I’m letting I’m letting I´m letting
I’m letting it all go
Forgetting forgetting forgetting
Throwing it overbroad

Bridge:
When I stand there
Stripped of all armour
When I stand there
Stripped of all pride
I will wash my face
I will be confident
I will be confident

I’m looking I’m looking I’m looking
I´m looking for where to go
I’m looking I’m looking I’m looking
For somewhere else to go

Track 3

Deportation blues

I´ve heard this was a land of peace
I must have misunderstood
I´ve heard this was a land of peace
And protect me
You would

I´ve heard this was a land of peace
I must have been told a lie
I´ve heard this was a land of peace
I guess it depends
Which is your side

Chorus:
And you give me that look
You give me that pen
You ask me politely to sign
You give me that friendly
Pat on my back
And you tell med I will be just fine

And who is gonna stay
And even be sane
Who is gonna leave
In that shining
Aeroplane

I was told never to give up
There must be a place for me
I believed if I struggled enough
I´d finally
Be free

Chorus:
And you give me that look
You give me that pen
You ask me politely to sign
You give me that friendly
Pat on my back
And you tell med I will be just fine

I´ve heard this was a land
Where everyone could be free
I´ve heard this was a land where
There was a chance
For me
Where there was a chance
For me
Where there was a chance
For me

Track 4

How and how

By and by
By and by
I get by by clutching
Scraps of sky

High and high
High and high
It´s going better
If you don’t ask why

The answer
Is
I haven´t found a reason
Not to try

Discouragement is
The easy way
It’s vain and futile you can
Always say

But how and how
How and how
Would a bird explain
Why it wants to fly

But how and how
How and how
Would a bird explain
Why it wants to fly

I don´t know
I don´t know
I don´t know
What I’m looking for

But ´til I know
´til I know
I´d better not stop
Wanting more

´Cause how and how
How and how
Would a bird explain
Why it wants to fly

And how and how
How and how
Would a bird explain
Why it wants to fly

Track 5

You Gotta Live With It

Live with it
Live with it
No matter all the fools no matter all the rules
You gotta live with it
No matter all the pains no matter all the chains
You gotta live with it

Chorus:
No matter all the ways
It makes you feel a fool
No matter all the ways
It breaks your heart into

No matter all the vanity no matter the insanity
You gotta live with it
No matter all the beauty no matter all the cruelty
You gotta live with it
No matter all your fears
You gotta live with them

Chorus:
No matter all the ways
It makes you feel a fool
No matter all the ways
It breaks your heart into

You gotta find grace
You gotta find something to praise
You gotta find an empty space
So you can live with it
You gotta let it out gotta blurt it out and shout
So you can live with it

Chorus:
No matter all the ways
It makes you feel a fool
No matter all the ways
It breaks your heart into

You will never be safe
There will always be a fake
There will always be more to take
But you will live with it
You´re gonna stay with it
You´re gonna fight for it

Chorus:
No matter all the ways
It makes you feel a fool
No matter all the ways
It breaks your heart into
No matter all the ways
It makes you feel a fool
No matter all the ways
It breaks your heart into

Track 6

Would You Please

What I wanted with you
What I wanted with you
Filling my world to the top
Make me not think of what I have not
Would you please give that to me
Would you please give that to me

What I wanted with you
What I wanted with you
Walking down the same road
Walking down the same road
A hundred times in a new way
Would you please give that to me

Bridge:
And when I’m old
My hands weak and cold
Will you hold me then
Will you know me then

What I wanted with you
What I wanted from you
Telling me when I’m wrong
Telling me when I’m too far gone
Would you please give that to me
Would you please give that to me

What I wanted with you
What I wanted from you
Filling my heart to the top
Make me not think of what I am not
Would you please give that to me
Would you please give that to me

Outro:
Would you please give that
Give that
Give that

Track 7

You Don’t Have a Clue

So you´re here
Just doing your job
You check the time
Soon you’ll be off
You´ll go home
To your cosy flat
And I´m a trouble
That you will pass

Chorus:
I tell you
I tell you
I tell you
You don’t have a clue

Pre chorus:
´Cause I´ll be right here
Won´t I
I´ll be sitting here
Won´t I
I´ll be
Going nowhere

Chorus:
I tell you
I tell you
I tell you
You don’t have a clue

When I’m breaking
You tell me to stop it
When I’m freaking
You tell me to hold it
When I´m burning
You say there’s no reason for it
When I´m yelling
You say I´ll be punished for it

Chorus:
I tell you
I tell you
I tell you
You don’t have a clue

Pre chorus:
´Cause what you´ve seen this far
Is nothing
What you´ve lived this far
Is nothing
What you know
Is nothing

Chorus:
I tell you
I tell you
I tell you
You don’t have a clue

What am I to do
With all this mess
What am I to do
With all your guesses
What am I to do
With what is left
What would you do
If you were bereft

Chorus:
You tell me
You tell me
You tell
You have such fine clues

Pre chorus:
´Cause I´ll be right here
Won´t I
I´ll be sitting here
Won´t I
I´ll be
Going nowhere

Chorus:
I tell you
I tell you
I tell you
You don’t have a clue

Track 8

Roots mingle

I hear voices talking about
The land they´re dreaming of
The land they dream
This one shall be
I hear voices talking about
Who´s to be part of it
Who´s to be part
And who is not
I hear voices talking about
A land with one dream
A land with one
Single voice

Chorus:
And I hear what you’re heading for
And I fear what you´re heading for
And I dread what you’re heading for now
You’re heading for now
You´re heading for now

I hear voices talking about
Where our roots stem from
Cause they must stem
From the same place
I hear voices talking about
What our home is
A nice and tidy home
But not for all
I hear voices talking about
What I should like best
What I should like best is
The well-known

Chorus:
And I hear what you’re heading for
And I fear what you´re heading for
And I dread what you’re heading for now
You’re heading for now
You´re heading for now

And if you tell me that
This land your´re dreaming of
This land you´re dreaming of
Is mine
I will tell you I don´t care
Where my roots stem from
Roots mingle into
The unknown
And the roots they mingle
And the earth it withers
And this unknown
Is our home

Outro:
This unknown
Is our home
This unknown
Is our home

Track 9

Like a wave

There must be something from you
Lift me up each day
There must be something from you
Lift me up each day
Lift me up
Lift me up

There must be something of wrath
Waking up each day
There must be something of wrath
Waking up each day
There must be
Something desperate

There must be something of death
Lifting up each day
There must be something of death
Lifting up each day
Lifting up
Lifting up

Chorus:
Like a wave
Like a wave
To be saved
To be saved
To be crushed
To be crumbled
To be ocean again

There must be something so mighty
I´ll be swept away
There must be something so frightening
That I lose my way
For a start
For a start

There must be something so bright
That my sight is cleared
There must be so dark a night
That my fear comes near
For a start
For a start

And just when you’re torn asunder
There is no such wonder
To break
Be scattered
Be reassembled

Chorus:
Like a wave
Like a wave
To be saved
To be saved
To be crushed
To be crumbled
To be ocean again

And just when you’re torn asunder
There is no such wonder
To break
Be scattered
Be reassembled

And just when you’re torn asunder
There is no such wonder
To break
Be scattered
Be reassembled

And just when you’re torn asunder
There is no such wonder
To break
Be scattered
Be reassembled

Chorus:
Like a wave
Like a wave
To be saved
To be saved
To be crushed
To be crumbled
To be ocean again

Track 10

Wanna be all for you

Wanna be all for you
Wanna be all for you
Wanna be all for you
Don´t you notice

Wanna be broken into
Even wanna be fooled by you
Wanna be all for you
Don´t you notice

Chorus:
I will never betray this
You´ll never hear me say this
If so I would not be the one
You knew

Wanna be the one you dream of
Wanna be the one you scream for
Wanna be the one
You fear for

Wanna be the one to confuse you
Be the one you never get used to
Be the one who constantly
Eludes you

Chorus:
I will never achieve this
You’ll never believe this
If so I would not be the one
You knew

Bridge:
Don’t you be mistaken
This will never be outspoken
But still you have my word
It´s true
Don’t you be mistaken
This will never be outspoken
But still you have my word
It´s true

Wanna be all for you
Wanna be all for you
Wanna be all for you
Don´t you notice
Don´t you notice
Don´t you notice
Don´t you notice

Track 11

I like you in every way

I like you
In every way
I like you
In every way
In every way

I know it sounds stupid
But that’s what I wanna say
I know it sounds stupid
But I say it anyway
I say it anyway

Chorus:
That I like you in every way
I like you in every way
I like you in every way
I like you in every way

I don´t wanna be intrusive
But I dreamt we were best friends
We laughed and just were stupid
No worry no shame
No worry no shame

I know that we are grownups
So maybe there’s no way
I know that we are grownups
So maybe there’s no words to say
That I like you in every way

Chorus:
That I like you in every way
I like you in every way
I like you in every way
I like you in every way
