You won’t get out the county, ’cause you’re bad and free – You got a new horizon…

A melancholy town where we never smile – And all I want to hear is the message beep

My dreams, they got a kissing – ‘Cause I don’t get sleep, no – Windmill, windmill for the land

Turn forever hand in hand – Take it all in on your stride – It is ticking, falling down

Love forever, love is freely – Turned forever, you and me

Is everybody in?

Play these ponies at the track – It’s my chocolate attack – Watch me as I gravitate

Going to bite the dust, can’t fight with us – So don’t stop, get it  – Until you’re cheddar headed – And watch the way I navigate


Now you’re getting with it – Keep up that winning style


Waking up much to early – I really can’t sleep more – Well, it’s a brand new day

[Why Tony]

I learned quite a lot – Shooting through my mind – Things I never guessed at before

And so I decided – To leave my old life behind – I don’t need it anymore

I’m going to learn to climb the clouds – I’m going to learn to climb the wind 

I wont stop til I’ve understood the dark – My mind will listen to the stars

To everyone else I appear quite the same – And I help them as much as I can

But they’ll never know that my mind is in the air – how could they ever understand

I’ll learn what lies beneath the earth – I’m going to understand the space – I’ll even go back beyond birth

[Franz Ferdinand]

Honestly, what will become of me? – I don’t like reality – It’s way too clear to me – But really life is dandy

We are what we don’t see – We miss everything daydreaming – Flames to dust – Lovers to friends

Why do all good things come to an end?

Traveling I always stop at exits – Wondering if I’ll stay

Young and restless – Living this way I stress less – I want to pull away when the dream dies

The pain sets it and I don’t cry – I only feel gravity and I wonder why

Dogs were whistling a new tune – Barking at the new moon – Hoping it would come soon – So that they could die

And the sun was wondering if it should – Stay away for a day til the feeling went away

And the sky was falling – And the clouds were dropping – And the rain forgot how to bring salvation


Unforgettable, though near or far – Like a song of love that clings to me – How the thought of you does things to me

Never before has someone been more – Unforgettable in every way – And forevermore 

That’s how you’ll stay – That’s why darling, it’s incredible – That someone so unforgettable

Thinks that I am unforgettable too

[Nat King Cole]

Your frame is a slender tree – And hands two sprawling leaves – Your mouth, a quiet dawn – Your hair, a waterfall – Your eyes, stars astral light

Slow whispers of infinity – That draw me closer to your body night by night

Your questions are impossible – Galaxies and moonlight flow – Angry tides and fallow lands – And our universe expands

Your footprints are maps to me – Under sunlight speckled woods

You’ll feed me in the failing light – A simple meal of gravity – And all my love is a satellite – Spinning

You reached into space for me – Held my orbit evenly, certain of infinity – But moons and comets die eventually

And when we go, go in peace – When our spirits go free – And the world’s only grey – Quiet dawning galaxy 

And my love is a satellite – Spinning, spinning – Spinning, spinning, spinning
