How can I give my reasons If I cannot change myself? I'm playing it all in one season It didn't begin well How could you've known That thirty years on this planet have a price? How can I change a world If I cannot change myself? Today into the record store I saw you playing a couple of songs or more You were so awesome and fresh, and I felt So odd with my punctured bicycles On a hillside desolate And it's linked to the speech How can I change a world If I cannot change myself? A sense of unease A constant fear of being shy All things that I cannot deny They will follow me for life But songs are a therapy They're all I've got to change my world 'Cause I cannot change myself

So Say goodnight I'll go to bed and I won't ever sleep at all Fault It's your fault if I feel bad It's down to all that I was told Hold I was trying to hold things together Help me cross the night With all my teeth around my tongue Time Time will tell If happiness is just a melancholy hope Joke Just a joke, don't take it badly And let me feel alright. Forgive, forgive The way I feel I never asked to grow Anxiety It came to me Not so long ago

Fugitives 04:19
Oh, there's a second-hand car salesman Where my block began I saw five years of a life of total ugliness He made me understand This city can feel no shame To benight your way and let you do your worst until you die And we are not so young to think we're satisfied In a building of the 60's we decide To be like the fugitives Let's be like the fugitives We'll see anybody, nobody Like the fugitives It's an easy thing to decide But if I die in the meantime Promise me you will make new friends You don't have too many I would say in my old age "We were close, I forget the rest" You don't have too many friends 'Cause we're like fugitives

Lynn 03:50
When I turned around Lynn had gone away So I spoke Lynn I love you, I really love But I cannot think about it now But every fear would melt If only I lost control But every fear would melt if only I found the courage to talk But every fear would melt If only I lost control Lynn, you’ve got my soul Talking 'bout the wind Now I should go out and walk in this wind Your company is dear to me But it's a thing I have to do alone And every fear would melt If only I lost control And every fear would melt if only I found the courage to talk And every fear would melt If only I lost control Lynn, you’ve got my soul

Maracaibo 05:20
A falling star A crumpled pocket full of bolivars Unreal A tawdry dress An early 80's Lu Colombo success Dispossessed A sad old story about a creole love A rediscovered one-hit wonder I will be what you want if you decide To fill my heart, 'cause I've been hurt enough I will be what you want, just hold me tight 'Cause we're out of sight A lightning bolt A bloody land of the beloved sun A clumsy joropo A bewilderment in Gran Sabana falls A tasty hot plate of cachitos I will be what you want if you decide To fill my heart, 'cause I've been hurt enough I will be what you want, just hold me tight 'Cause we're out of sight I need to borrow another life And wear it for a while And wear it for a while Let us get lost in a tropical juvenile dance Our last chance to save To save anything at all

Another wake Another mistake Another day Another train delay Another turn Another concern Today I start to feel the weight Another line on the to-do list To pretend that a sense exists Another reason to make a debt And I'm beginning to believe I'll see the light no more Another trice It's so imprecise Other unsolicited advice "Have you eaten?" "Are you cold?" "When will you have it made? You're gone old" Another lesson at an over cost Comes from those you love the most Another silent and privy hell And I'm beginning to believe I'll see the light no more Looking for an emotion That takes me aside

For all those times I said "for ever" A matter of time, a matter of time For all those times I felt overwhelmed A matter of life, a matter of life Now you see my face Tears like acid rain When a new remorse takes place Tomorrow I'll be here again For all those times I've choked with Killing Joke The desire to cry, the desire to cry For all those horrible times I've unprotected The one that I love, the one that I love Now you see my face Tears like acid rain When a new remorse takes place Tomorrow I'll be here again And again And again And again

I know you'll find this a little trite It's not a thing I like to write But the future, the future had never seemed So uncertain, nothing heals me like the gleam Of your head in the ocean The feet in the sand, the big red sun The grief for all the things undone Your body waves like a polaroid Mesmerizing everything And there is only one redeeming quality in my life To sing about a fading feeling Hoping that tomorrow it will sweep away the fears Like the memory Of your head in the ocean
