 –Oscar–

Have you met Oscar
He lives in a tree
He eats branches
With his strong teeth
And every Christmas,
‘gets down from his tree
He sings carols
With my family and me
We give him presents
A box full of cookies
But after supper
‘Gets up in his tree
We always visit
Three knocks, then we see
He’s never there
Oh where could he beMy sweet Oscar, where could he be
My sweet Oscar, where could he be

(Verse again)

My sweet Oscar, where could he be
My sweet Oscar, oh where could he be
My sweet Oscar, where could you be
My sweet Oscar, marry me
Marry me
Marry me

–Sailorboy–

You were playing chess with the old lady next door
Until she held out her hand
Held the king and she said:

He’ll watch you fall
He’ll watch you crawl
He’ll watch you fall
He’ll watch you crawl through the dust

There’s a boy behind the window
He’s leaving marks on the glass
He’s thinking ‘bout past lovers
Yes, I was one of them
Would you like to go sailing
Making babies on the boat
But time has passed between us
Lovers come, lovers go
And we all grow old

He’ll watch you fall
He’ll watch you crawl
He’ll watch you fall
He’ll watch you crawl through the dust

You’re standing on my doorstep
You’re leaving me again
The same feelings crawl up
I am small, insecure
But not anymore

No, I won’t fall
No, I won’t crawl
No, I won’t fall
No, I won’t crawl for you anymore
Not for you anymore

–Heavy Heart–

Run my fingers over the ceiling
I fly, I fly
Make little jumps on the ceiling
I can cause I fly, I fly, fly
Cut their wires, now they’re flying with me
Paper cranes fill the air
Cut my wire, now I’m free and flying
But with the windows closed
I stay inside

Have a heavy heart, it’s bruised
Doesn’t matter for now
Have a heavy heart, it’s bruised
Doesn’t matter for now

Your sweater full of tears
That’s cause of me
Cause I, I cried so hard
And you held me near
A salty sweater full of tears
Cause I, I cried so hard
And you held me near
I keep my eyes closed
And you, you didn’t leave
‘Truth doesn’t matter for now

Have a heavy heart, it’s bruised
Doesn’t matter for now
I have a heavy heart, it’s bruised
Doesn’t matter for now

I keep my heart inside a box
Outside of my body
So it doesn’t bother me at all
Doesn’t bother you
Doesn’t bother anyone
But me, but me

Run my fingers over the ceiling
I fly, I fly

I lay down on the ceiling
And with my eyes closed
You didn’t leave

–Manic–

He was waiting for me on the carpet tonight
He was tired, felt heavy, drawn to the ground
Tired and heavy, drawn to the ground

Can you hear them? They’re talking to me
They tell riddles and stories, ‘bout turtles in the sea
They hide in the closets, behind paintings, under seats
They keep mocking me, I looked but couldn’t see

Can you hear them? They’re talking to me
They tell riddles and stories ‘bout how things used to be
When they lived in the forest, no men, no machines
When all was quiet, well silence gave ease

Can you hear them, they’re screaming to me
Their voices are too loud, they won’t let me be
But, I can’t change them, I can’t set them free
I don’t have the power
He got down on his knees and said:
Please, if you hear me, go away,
I need to get some sleep, you’re keeping me on for days

He’s still waiting on the carpet for me
I won’t come, I set myself free
I tried for months, couldn’t get through
He just shut me out
Still I cling like glue

Things are getting better
Back to being me
I became a pilot and flew this crap into the sea

–Cold Ground–

When you came in my heart
I was born from the cold, from the cold, from the cold
Yeah when you came in my heart
I was born from the cold, from the cold, from the cold

My body got lifted on a warm cloud
My fingers are clinched with yours
My body got lifted on a warm cloud
My soul is filled with yours

Cause when you came in my heart
I was born from the cold, from the cold, from the cold

And now I don’t know what to do when you’re not here
I’m out of balance and out of control
Yeah now I don’t know what to do when you’re not here
I’m lost, unbalanced and out of control

Cause when you came in my heart
I was born from the cold, from the cold, from the cold
Yeah when you came in my heart
I was born from the cold, from the cold, from the cold
I was born from the cold, from the cold, from the cold
I was born from the cold, the cold, the cold
I was born from the cold, the cold, the cold
