Baby Sister lyrics - Damien Rice

Don't wake up, baby sister
Keep dreaming
Did he fill your cup?
Baby sister, keep drinking

Or he'll hit you
He'll bleach your eyes
So be a good girl just for the night
And run. Run.

Don't get stuck,
Baby sister, leave this land
And read your books
Baby sister, wash your hands

Or he'll beat you
He'll bleach your eyes
So be a good girl just for the night
And run! Run! Run! Run! Run!
Run, baby sister, run
Baby sister.

Creep lyrics - Damien Rice

(originally by Radiohead)

When you're here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
Beautiful world
I wish I was special
So very special

I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing ere?
I don't belong here

I don't care if you're lost (?)
I wanna have control
Wanna perfect body
Wanna perfect soul
Want you to know this
I'm not around
So very special
I wish I was special

I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

[ad lib]

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
So very special
I wish I was special

I'm a creep
I'm a weeirdo
What the hell am I don't here?
I don't belong here
I don't belong here

Cross-Eyed Bear lyrics - Damien Rice

I broke your doll
It's cross-eyed, that's all
I wanted to help it see straight

Half broken moon, sooner than soon
I was up on your wall, smaller than small
In a half painted frame, wood wooden stain
I hope that reminds you of the part you couldn't change in me

If you push me, I fall
If you pull me, I drown
If you're gonna be nailing me down
I won't rise again

I scratched your car
Where a bird left a stain
I wanted to help you see straight

Half broken moon, sooner than soon
I was up on your wall, smaller than small
In a half painted frame, with a wood wooden stain
I hope that reminds you of the part you couldn't change in me

If you push me, I fall
If you pull me, I drown
If you're gonna be nailing me down
I won't rise again
I won't rise again

I'm not God, I'm not God
Well I'm not God, I'm not God
I might love you, but I'm not God

Greatest Bastard lyrics - Damien Rice

I made you laugh, I made you cry
I made you open up your eyes
Didn't I?

I helped you open out your wings,
your legs, and many other things
Didn't I?

Am I the greatest bastard that you know?
The only one who let you go?
The one you hurt so much you cannot bear?

Well we were good, when we were good
When we were not misunderstood

You helped me love, you helped me live
You helped me learn how to forgive
Didn't you?

I wish that I could say the same
But when you left, you left the blame
Didn't you?

Am I the greatest bastard that you met?
The only one you can't forget?
Am I the one your truth's been waiting for?

Or am I just dreaming once again?
Some dreams are better when they end

Some make it, mistake it
Some force and some will fake it
I never meant to let you down
Some fret it, forget it
Some ruin and some regret it
I never meant to let you down

We learn to wag and tuck our tails
We learn to win and then to fail
Didn't we?

We learn that lovers love to sing
And that losers love to cling
Didn't we?

Am I the greatest bastard that you know?
When will we learn to let this go?
We fought so much, we've broken all the charm

But letting go is not the same
As pushing someone else away

So please don't let on
You don't know me
Please don't let on
I'm not here
Please don't let on
You don't love me
'Cause I know you do
I know

That some make it, mistake it
Some force and some will fake it
I never meant to let you down
Some fret it, forget it
Some ruin and some regret it
I never meant to let you down
I never meant to let you
I never meant to let you down
I never meant

Hypnosis lyrics - Damien Rice

[from "Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet" soundtrack]

When you know who you are,
And can see through your veils,
Your old fears become wind in your sails,
Then your heart heat unfurled,
From the hypnosis of your world,

When you know who you are,
The darkness the light, love loves it all,
Cause love has no fight, what has passed is a dream,
What is not here is not what it seems,

So pull yourself together now,
So pull yourself together now,

When you know who you are and have nothing to hide,
Loves at your feet and the hands at your side,
When yours ears are your words,
The silence can always be heard,

When you know who you are,
You can't help but let go,
You know no ones right,
You know you don't know,
The paradox becomes less absurd,
As your hypnosis unwhirls,

So pull yourself together now,
So pull yourself together now,

What's the matter with,
What's the matter with,
What's the matter with you,

Did it crush, did it shatter? did it break or scatter?
Did it tear your little heart in two?

What's done is over,
Yeah if you want something new,

Just pull yourself together now,
Just pull yourself together now,
Just pull yourself together now,
Just pull yourself together now,
All I have is all I need, and all I need is here now

Lonely Soldier lyrics - Damien Rice

Lonely soldier go home
Lonely, but never alone
Good eyes see nothing to shoot
Good feet feel good given up good boots

Ask your father how do ya fall
Like a leave sitting on the ground
Good for nothing except kicking around

She died with her hand stretched out
She died with a hungry mouth
She died with a mind full of doubt
(And a pulse of weakening)

So may river never dry
May your mouth never lie
May you be satisfied to never know why
Sometimes, someone just wants to die
Where'd you get those cuts in your hand
I thought I told 'bout playing in the sand

There's always someone carelessly class
There's always questions no one asks

She died with her hand stretched out
She died with a hungry mouth
She died with a mind full of doubt
(And a pulse of weakening)

May river never dry
May your mouth never lie
May you be satisfied to never know why
Sometimes, someone just wants to die

Lonely soldier go home
Lonely, but never alone
Good eyes see nothing to shoot
Good feet feel good given up good boots

Looking after number one
Baby, why'd you have to go?
Why'd you have to phone?
Somethin' you're afraid to show?
Is there someone else you'd rather phone?

Moody mooday
(It's got me)
Moody mooday

Moody mooday

Never & Always On My Mind lyrics - Damien Rice

You left it.
I sent it.
I want it back.

You left it.
I sent it.
I want it back.

If I had you here
I'd clip your wings,
Snap you up,
And leave you sprawling
On my pin.

This plan of mine
Is Oh so very lame.
Can't you see
The grass is greener
Where it rains?

And you left...
I died.

I went...
And you cried.

You came...
I think.

But I never really know.

Now I've served my time.
I've watched you climb
The wrong incline.
But you never really know.

Accept it.
Don't let it
Fuck you up.

Accept it.
Don't let it
Fuck you up.

This applies equally
To you and I...
The only thing
We've shared
Is the same sky.

These empty metaphors...
They're all in vain.
Can't you see
The grass is greener
Where it rains?

And you left...
I died.

I went...
You cried.

You came...
I think.

But I never really know.

Now I've served my time.
I've watched you climb
The wrong...
You left it.
I sent it.
I want it back.
You never really know.

Accept it...
Don't let it
Fuck you up.

You never really know.

You left...
I died.

I went...
You cried.

You came...
I think.

You never really know.

I've served my time.

I've watched you climb
The wrong incline.

You never really know.
You never really know.

Maybe I didn't hold you
Quite as good as I should have
And I guess I never told you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied

You never really know
You never really know

Sand lyrics - Damien Rice

Keep me in a glass jar sealed with a label
You think you know my world, wake up young girl
And take a thrust of lust if you must now
You've got a lot to learn, yeah

My love, my life, my work, my time
I give them all to you
Your hand in mine, we walk, we talk in rhyme
We go the whole night through, yeah

But I am not a grain of sand
I don't care what's written in your hand
'Cause it's bound to change, yeah

Sore, bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Wrap it up, rip it up now, have it sold
I'm a grower
Anymore [x4]
I wanna be with you
I just wanna be with you

But you tease me
And it shows in the way that you play, yeah
You think you know my love
Wake up young girl
And take a taste, not a bite of a life, now
Can tell you'll never come, yeah well

My will, my mind, my lips, my lines
I've got them all over you
Your taste combined with all the years of wasting time
I gotta hold onto something new

I am not a grain of sand
I don't care what's written in your hand
'Cause it's bound to change, yeah

Sore, bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Buy the book then rip it up now, have it sold
I'm a grower
Anymore [x4]
I wanna be with you
I just wanna be with you

But I don't wanna pray for what is not right
And I don't wanna beg for what is not mine
I don't wanna run the road between dreams and worthy things
I could charge, I could really try
But I don't wanna be the brave one in a senseless fight
No I, I said I, I said I
I just wanna be here tonight

Sore, bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Wrap it up, rip it up now, have it sold
I'm a grower
Anymore [x4]
I wanna be with you
I just wanna be with you

Sore bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Buy the book then rip it up now, have it sold
I'm a grower
Anymore [x7]
I need more [x4]

Keep me in a glass jar sealed with a label
You think you know my world
Wake up young girl

The Connoisseur Of Great Excuse lyrics - Damien Rice

Of all the foolish things to do
I became a connoisseur of great excuse
And my pessimistic past the blame
Will never make this go away
Of all the foolish things I've said
That keep me sleepy almost dead
I'm sorry if I've let you down
My eyes were closed, they're open now

I'm waking up
I am waking up
I am waking up
I awake

And this has all been said before
I've listened but then I ignored
My ears grew deaf
My head gave up
The junkie knows not when to stop
Of all the foolish alibis
The constipated push for why
I've had a blanket pulled over my eyes
Oh hush now baby don't you cry

I'm waking up
I am waking up
I am waking up
I'm awake
Coming
I am waking up
I'm ready
I am waking up
Dada da da da daaa

Unplayed Piano lyrics - Damien Rice (with Lisa Hannigan)

Come and see me
Sing me to sleep
Come and free me
Hold me if I need to weep

Maybe it's not the season
Maybe it's not the year
Maybe there's no good reason
Why I'm locked up inside

Just cause they wanna hide me
The moon goes bright
The darker they make my night

Unplayed pianos are often by a window
In a room where nobody loved goes
She sits alone with her silent song
Somebody bring her home

Unplayed piano (unplayed piano)
Still holds a tune (still holds a tune)
Lock on the lid (years, years pass by)
In a stale, stale room (in the changing of the moon)
Maybe it's not that easy (through the only window)
Or maybe it's not that hard (in a stale, stale room)

Maybe they could release me (stale, stale room)
Let the people decide
I've got nothing to hide
I've done nothing wrong
So why have I been here so long?

Unplayed pianos are often by a window
In a room where nobody loved goes
She sits alone with her silent song
Somebody bring her home

Unplayed pianos are often by a window
In a room where nobody loved goes
She sits alone with her silent song
Somebody bring her home

Unplayed piano
Still holds a tune
Years pass by
In the changing of the moon

What If I'm Wrong lyrics - Damien Rice

I could wrestle with tomorrow
Until tomorrow's in the past
Because I have torn apart what's beautiful
To prove that nothing lasts

I have stayed locked behind these doors
To show there's no way out
I got lost within the space between
The question and the doubt

On an ordinary day
In an ordinary way
I have combed the cracks of virtue
For a place to lay the blame

And I have hated, I have lied
Been guilty and denied
I've dismissed the ones who question me
Declaring I am right

What if I'm wrong
What if I'm wrong

I have built a wall between
What I believed and what is true
I have sacrificed the love I had
For power over you

I have convicted those who disagree
And walked over the weak
I have placed a gun within the mouth
Of those who dared to speak

And on an ordinary day
In an ordinary way
I have crushed the minds of children
With extraordinary shame

And I have carried on this war
Though no one wins an endless fight
I have claimed that God has guided me
And killed to prove I'm right

What if I'm wrong
What if I'm wrong
What if I'm wrong
What if I'm wrong

Is this soul worth saving at all?
Cause if I lose my wings then surely I must fall
And the gods prayed to the gods they made

We could wrestle with tomorrow
until tomorrow's in the past
We could tear apart what's beautiful
To prove that nothing lasts

We could stay locked behind the doors
To show there's no way out
We could get lost within the space between
The question and the doubt

But what if we're wrong?

What This Night Is For lyrics - Damien Rice

She's got a place within the woods
Where she swings near the house in the trees
She's got a way with animals
And invites me along to get free

There's an army of men who'd shoot for her
Even goddesses watch when she moves
Her friends get us high and something opens up the sky
And fills us with nothing to lose

Oh and we've never been in this place before
No, not as it is right now
And we may never know what this night is for
So for now we'll just sit around

He's got a way of lingering
Like a ghost that just won't go away
He's got a place within the wind
He's around but I know he won't stay

There's an army of stars that crash the night
They were burning but still it was cold
So we dared the gods to come and sit and talk with us
We were bruised, we were stilled, we were bold

Oh and we've never been in this place before
No, not as it is right now, right now
And we may never know what this night is for
So for now we'll just sit around
Yeah, for now we'll just sit around

Oh 'cause we've never been in this place before
No, not as it is right now, right now
And we may never know what this life and love, and living is for
So for now, we'll just sit around
Yeah, for now we'll just sit around

Wild And Free lyrics - Damien Rice

Don't give me something to hold in my hand
Something else to believe in
Cause I'm over it
And your reason for wanting to stay
Your reason for wanting to change
My reason for everything I've done to you...

I have tried but I don't fit
Into this box I'm living with
I could go wild
But you might lock me up...

And I have tried but I don't fit
Into this box you call a gift
I could be wild and free
But god forbid then you might envy me...

So don't give me love with a whole bunch of rules
'cause that kind of love is just for fools
And I'm over it
And my reasons for walking away
My reasons for wanting to change
My reasons for everything I lost with you...

I have tried but I don't fit
Into this box I'm living with
I could go wild
But you might lock me up...

And I have tried but I don't fit
Into this box you call a gift
I could be wild and free
God forbid then you might envy me...

I have tried but I don't fit
Into this box I'm living with
I could go wild
But you might lock me up...

And I have tried but I don't fit
Into this box you call a gift
I could be wild and free
God forbid then you might envy me...

I could be wild and free
God forbid then you might envy me...

I could be wild and free
