Lyrics

Everything

when you got nothing
freewheeling and free falling you go
when you’ve got nothing you’ve got something to prove
then you get something
something that you’ve always dreamed about

when you’ve got something you’ve got something to lose
they’ll take everything
they’ll take your spark they’ll take everything
they’ll break your heart they’ll take everything
ahh ‘cause nothings ever something
until you lose everything
for a while you’ve got everything
you’re flying high you don’t wanna come down
but something stirs down in your soul ‘cause everything is nothing ’til you’ve got
somebody to share it with
somebody to have somebody to hold
give them everything
give them light and dark give them everything
give them all your heart give them everything
yeah ‘cause nothings ever something
until you give everything

‘cause nothing lasts forever
yeah but some things they never change
you know that anything is better
if you’ve got love, you’ve got everything
you’ve got everything
ahh everything
ahh everything
ahh everything
yeah ‘cause nothing’s ever something
until you give everything

If You Go

while we’re wild and free
we’ll skip like we’re stones on the sea
we’ll sing like we’re birds in the tree that grows
outside your windowwhile we’re new and young
we’ll shine like a morning sun
no matter the seasons that come and go
and which way the wind blows
cos everytime you go i see
just how my world comes crashing round me
and if you only stay
i don’t think i’d ask for nothing more

but if you go then i’ll go
oh if you go then i’ll go
oh if you go i’ll go
as long as you want me to stay

while our love is green
we’ll forget the troubles we’ve seen
we’ll forget the people we’ve been
before and all of their mistakes and heartbreaks
and oh my love

while the stars they shine
and while your heart is mine
yeah while there’s music and wine
let us dance out of time
let us pull down the stars
let us tug on the lines
let us smile til we laugh
let us laugh til we cry
let us fall in a heap under diamond skies

cos everytime you go i see
just how my world comes crashing round me
and if you only stay
i don’t think i’d ask for nothing more

oh if you go, then i’ll go
oh if you go, then i’ll go
oh if you go, i’ll go
as long as you want me to stay

and i’ll stay i’ll sty til the sun falls out of the sky ,
i’ll stay i’ll stay til all of the rivers run dry
hey now

oh if you go then i’ll go
oh if you go then i’ll go
oh if you go i’ll go
as long as you want me to stay

When We Were Young

we used to never say never
used to think we’d live forever
flying free beneath the sun
days go running and hiding
weeks go slipping and sliding
years leave quicker every time they come
remember when we were young

look back to the best of days
collecting our yesterdays
as they build up one by one
oh how we beg and we borrow
say we’ll do it tomorrow
but tomorrow never seems to come

we used to never say never
flying free beneath the sun
days go running and hiding
and the weeks go slipping and sliding
years leave quicker every time they come
remember when we were young

we were boys on the beach
everything was in reach
i know it’s hard to remember
oh how the years they vanish
i always wanted to learn spanish
and travel round south america

we used to never say never
used to think we’d live forever
flying free beneath the sun
days go running and hiding
and the weeks go slipping and sliding
years leave quicker every time they come
do you remember when we were young

yeah we used to never say never
used to think we’d live forever
flying free beneath the sun
days go running and hiding
and the weeks go slipping and sliding, yeah
years leave quicker every time they come
do you remember when we were young
do you remember when we were young
do you remember when we were young
do you remember when we were young

Anywhere

if you get out on the ocean
if you sail out on the sea
if you get up in the mountains
if you go climbing on trees
oh through every emotion
when you know that they don’t care
darling thats when i’m with you
oh i’ll go with you anywhereif you get up in a jet plane
or down in a submarine
if you get on to the next train
to somewhere you’ve never been
if you wanna ride in a fast car
and feel the wind in your hair
darling just look beside you
oh i’ll go with you anywhere
oh and i will be with you when
the darkest wintercomes
oh and i will be with you to feel the california sun
oh and i will be with you in the night
and when itsthrough
oh i’ll go anywhere with you

if you get up in the hillside
if you ride out on the planes
if you go digging up dirt
if you go out dancing in the rain
if you go chasing them rainbows
just to find the gold ain’t there
darling just look behind you
oh i’ll go with you anywhere

oh and i will be with you when
the darkest winter comes
oh and i will be with you to feel the california sun
oh and i will be with you in the night
and when its through
oh i’ll go anywhere with you

yeah i’ll go anywhere with you

oh and i will be with you when
the darkest wintercomes
oh and i will be with you to feel the california sun
oh and i will be with you in the night
and when its through
oh darling i swear i’ll go anywhere with you
oh i’ll go anywhere with you
oh i’ll go anywhere with you
oh i’ll go anywhere with you
oh i’ll go anywhere with you

Somebody’s Love

oh when the winds they blow
you’re gonna need somebody to know you
you’re gonna need somebody’s love to fall into
oh when the leaves they fall
you’re gonna need somebody to call you
you’re gonna need somebody’s arms to crawlinto
to crawl in to
go and get your self lost like you always do
sail in to the blue with nobody next to you
oh but when you wanna get yourself found
there may be no one around
you’ll sink without a sound you know its true

oh when the winds they blow
you’re gonna need somebody to know you
you’re gonna need somebody’s love to fall into
oh when the leaves they fall
you’re gonna need somebody to call you
you’re gonna need somebody’s arms to crawlinto
to crawl into

for what you’re saying is true
you aint no fool you aint no liar
you’re never gonna get yourself burned
if you don’t start no fire
but with no fire there is no light
and with no light you’ll never see
all the colours in the world
and all the love thats inside me

oh when the winds they blow
you’re gonna need somebody to know you
you’re gonna need somebody’s love to fall into
oh when the leaves they fall
you’re gonna need somebody to call you
you’re gonna need somebody’s arms to crawl into
to crawl into

and oh when the winds they blow
you’re gonna need somebody to know
you’re gonna need somebody’s love to fall into
and oh when the leaves they fall
you’re gonna need somebody to call
you’re gonna need somebody’s arms to crawlinto
to crawl into

Young As The Morning Old As The Sea

i wanna lay by a lake in norway
i wanna walk through swedish fields of green
i wanna see the forests of finland
i wanna sail on a boat on the baltic sea
i wanna feel a russian winter
i wanna go to my polish grandmothers home
i wanna see hungarian lanterns
i wanna walk on a road that leads to rome

i wanna be free as the winds that blow past me
clear as the air that i breathe
to be young as the morning and old as the sea

i wanna lose myself in the scottish highlands
the west coast of ireland the cornish breeze
i wanna rest my bones in the spanish sunshine
the italian coastline is calling me

to be free as the birds that fly past me
light as the fish in the sea
to be wise as the mountains and tall as the trees

and i wanna be sunny and bright as a sunrise
happy and full as the moon
but i’m fleeting like fireworks fading too soon

Beautiful Birds (feat. Birdy)

do you remember when we were two beautiful birds
we would light up the sky when we’d fly
you were orange and red like the sun when it sets
i was green as an apple’s eye
you said you loved all the songs that i’d sing
like nothing that you’d ever heard
and i said i loved you with all of my heart
when we were two beautiful birds

do you remember when we were two beautiful birds
we’d sing when the morning would come
you were silver and blue like the moon when its new
i was gold as a summer sun

one day you asked for a different song
one that i just couldn’t sing
i got the melody sharp and the words all wrong
those were the last days of spring

to build a nest we pecked feathers from our chests
like a book tearing out every page
we weren’t to know that these feathers would grow
in to a beautiful cage

The Long Road

you’ve walked the long road and you’ve worn itwell
you stitched yourself up when you fell
keep your memories in jars
carry secrets and scars beneath your shell
you’ve seen some good days and some bad ones too
you weaved through fashion and trend
you’ve seen the sunrise on an ocean blue
and seen it set for the dearest of friends

you found faith but you chose to doubt it
you found love but you left with out it
now you don’t want to talk about it

you’ve travelled down through foreign lands
touched mountain tops and golden sands
seen pyramids and temples made of stone
keep sea shells in a kashmir scarf
a treasuredbook of photographs
in every single one you stand alone

you’ve seen vienna and the berlin wall
and as you watched the decades fall
the letters that you wrote never made it home
and birthdays flew past like june
with christmas days in hotel rooms
and new years eve with people you don’t know

you built friendships but they sailed without you
you never meant it and thats why they’d doubt you
now they don’t ever talk about you

and you’re older than you used to be
the mirror weaves a tapestry
of lines that dance and shimmer round your eyes
as you stare back at a man
forever holding out his hand as if
the answers gonna fall out of the sky
but the penny never dropped
no man has ever stopped time from flying by

Fools Gold

hey can’t you show me something
I’ve not seen before
magic tricks and pirate ships
they just don’t work nomore
i’ve given up on treasure chests
that wash upon theshore
for fools gold never seems to keep its shinehey can’t you give me something
i can hold in my hands
i’m sick of gold rush promises
and empty suitcaseplans
i won’t go back to treasure maps
and digging in the sand
for i always seem to lose whatever i find
yeah i always seem to leave it all behind
hey give me golden afternoons in may
give me silver moons that light my way
and i won’t ask for fools gold any more

hey can’t you make me feel
like i haven’t felt for years
let me laugh like i did when i was a kid
’til i’d burst in to tears
let me count the diamond stars
and drink the water crystal clear
and i’ll be richer than any man that lives with fear

singing hey give me golden afternoons in may
give me silver moons that light my way
and i won’t ask for fools gold any more

ah ah ah
ah ah ah
ah ah ah
ah ah

singing hey give me golden afternoons in may
give me silver moons that light my way
and i won’t ask for fools gold any more
no i won’t ask for fools gold any more
oh i won’t ask for fools gold any more

Home

they say home is where the heart is
but my heart is wild and free
so am i homeless or just heartless
did i start this, did it start me
they say fear is for the brave
for cowards never stare it in the eye
so am i fearless to be fearful
does it take courage to learn how to cry

so many winding roads
so many miles to go

they say love is for the loving
and without love maybe nothing is real
so am i loveless do i just love less
oh since love left i’ve nothing left to feel

so many winding roads
so many miles to go

when i start feeling sick of it all
it helps to remember i’m a brick in the wall
that runs down from the hillside to the sea
and when i start feeling that it’s gone to far
i lie on my back and stare up at the stars
and wonder if they’re staring back at me

when i start feeling sick of it all
it helps to remember i’m a brick in the wall
that runs down from the hillside to the sea
yeah when i start feeling that it’s gone to far
i lie on my back and stare up at the stars
and wonder if they’re staring back at me

oh when i start feeling sick of it all
it helps to remember i’m a brick in the wall
that runs down from the hillside to the sea
yeah when i start feeling that it’s gone to far
i lie on my back and stare up at the stars
and wonder if they’re staring back at me

oh when i start feeling sick of it all
it helps to remember i’m a brick in the wall
that runs down from the hillside to the sea
oh when i start feeling that it’s gone to far
i lie on my back and stare up at the stars
and wonder if they’re staring back at me
