RAFFLED ROSES

I'm staging a sneaky intervention of my cold cold
I'm staging a sneaky intervention of my cold cold heart

I've been busy raffling off your roses in
Raffling off your roses in my spare time
Raffling off your roses in
Raffling off your roses in my spare time

Dragging my feet
The weight of your bouquet was heavy company
Fragrance so sweet but one by one by one I sold them all

CHORUS

Three little words sat pretty on a throne that barely holds the load

CHORUS

I wanna be alone but I don't wanna be lonely
Will I find him?
Will he find me?
And will he thaw my, will he thaw my, will he thaw my cold, cold heat?
So I can stop

CHORUS

I wanna be alone but, I wanna be alone but, 
Don't wanna be lonely
Don't wanna be

 

NEGRONI EYES

I've inadvertently taught my sneaky sorrows to swim
But they thrived in the wine I tried to drown them in

Now they're, now they're, now they're
Knee deep mad for my vices
Loved up and
Knee deep mad for my vices
Knee deep mad for my vices
Loved up and
Knee deep mad for my vices
I fear they'll never leave

I've inadvertently taught my sneaky sorrows to box
They're punching above their weight
But they won't stop

CHORUS

I fear them, fear them
Wading through Negroni Eyes
Wading through Negroni Eyes trying to find her
Wading through Negroni Eyes
Wading through Negroni Eyes trying to find her
The Queen bee that's taunting me
The Queen bee, she's me

I've inadvertently taught my sneaky sorrows to hide
They're playing cops and robbers
With no alibi

CHORU

 

IS IT YOU?

Vapid delights they litter your life and prey on your lonely side
Vacant enticement let all the boys in but

When your laid, when your laid, when your laid bare
There's nothing there
Under bright, under bright, under bright glare
There's nothing rare

All you got is
Opaque walls to bottle in
All that's left are
Colourful fables to mask the din
All you got is
Opaque walls to bottle in
All that's left are
Colourful fables to mask the din

In wuthering heights she conjured the lightening then clocked a seraphim
Sinister sightings mottled by all the gin

Is it you?
Is it?

CHORUS

Is it you?
Is it?

 

BEAUTY

Found Beauty in a place it shouldn't grow tonight
A miscalculated step turned to a harrowing sight
There's beauty in a place I never go

There's hunger in a heart I never show tonight
It crept onto my sleeve saw you and up and took flight
There's hunger in my heart I didn't know

Caught ya, caught ya, caught ya sewing new stars into my sky
Caught ya, caught ya, caught ya re-arranging my clouds
So each and every passerby could see the beauty

Stopped short beside the shadow of a man tonight He squirmed and told me he owed me a heart, the one he’d broken
There’s comfort in knowing that he’s not your plan

CHORUS

(Sampa)
Drew flowers round my window pane
Threw some kisses over them
Never was I bothered that I’d never see your face again
Magic In your sky I flew over the lust
You define love, you define us
Feet don’t fail me now, I pray
Feet don’t fail me now I could have the courage to move through galaxies
The tragedy you challenge me

CHORUS

 

VINYL SKIP

I did a lazy pirouette into your arms, into your heart
Lets just spin this slow
Till reality knocks at our door

So innocent when we're sleeping, dreaming
Lets just stay incased till reality has us waked, shoved and shaked

High fidelity don't need it
Vinyl's skipping
Pinch me when I start not breathing
Dancing 'round an empty room to Sarah singing
Hit me with a decent reason

Boxed in by four walls of you
You're all I see don't set me free
Please just let me stay till reality melts away

How can they expect me to just leave your gaze, clocked up three days
Doubt I'll ever leave till reality lets me breathe

Pining for someone to catch me
Been known to stumble
Hidden by a smile that suits who I wana be
High fidelity don't need it
Vinyl skipping
Pinch me when I start not breathing

We don't give a damn

I did a lazy pirouette into your arms, into your heart
Lets just spin this slow
Till reality knocks at our door
