ONCE TWICE MELODY

Out in the summer sun
She was the only one
Days go by, in her eyes
Belle de jour in front of me

No matter where you go
There’ll always be your shadow
Lalala, days go by, lalala, in her eyes
Once, twice, melody

The purple on the vine,
The velveteen tree line
Nights fly by, in her mind
All along the boulevard

She tries to understand
A never never land
Lalala, across the room, lalala, sweet perfume
The sun, the moon, the raindrops too

Ba da da da da , ba da da da daaaa
Lalala, days go by, lalala, in her eyes
Once, twice, melody
Ba da da da da, ba da da da daaaa
Lalala, days go by, lalala, in her eyes
Once, twice, melody

SUPERSTAR

There’s a light going out tonight
Driving fast
Flashing lines

It’s too late now to say goodbye
The stars were there
In our eyes

When you were mine
We fell across the sky
Backlit up against the wall
Out there on the run
You’re not the only one
Shadow from the sun

Somewhere out on the radio
Look up high
Now you’re gone

I see it now in this photograph
Something good
Never meant to last

Don’t want to know how the story ends
From now to then

When you were mine
We fell across the sky
It may be out of sight, but never out of mind
Out there on the run
You’re not the only one
Shadow from the sun
Backlit up against the wall

Superstar
Shining far

PINK FUNERAL

How sweet the sound
The swell of strings begins to rise
The stage is set
The painted stars they fill our eyes

This heart of mine
Goes out of time
Blue skies turn black
Behind our back

Don’t let me go
Once was a fairy tale
Then it all went to hell
Swans on a starry lake
Hearts that were made to break
Tears through a white lace veil
Pink funeral

Somewhere
Underneath the boughs
You’ll get away, get away some how
Far from here

All around
The lake of tears
You’ll know she’s near

Don’t let me go
Once was a fairy tale
Then it all went to hell
Swans on a starry lake
Hearts that were made to break
Tears through a white lace veil
Pink funeral

THROUGH ME

Something reminds me
Sweet dreams inside me
Limits shifting
Colors living
Through me

Just like days are ending
Just like we’re pretending
At the window
Let the light go
Through me

And in each silhouette
A time before the time we met
A time before the time we met
Here lies violet
Who can’t forget what happens next
In time you’ll see, you’ll see through me

Do you recognize it
Did you try to hide it
All the lifetimes
Sweeping right by
Through you

And in each silhouette
A time before the time we met
A time before the time we met
Here lies violet
Who can’t forget what happens next
In time you’ll see, you’ll see through me

Through you, through me
Through you, through me
Through you, through me
