That Day

length: 4:45

That day, That day
What a mess what a marvel
I walked into that cloud again
And I lost myself
And I'm sad, sad, sad
Small, alone, scared
Craving purity
A fragile mind and a gentle spirit

That day, That day,
What a marvelous mess
This is all that I can do
I'm done to be me
Sad, scared, small, alone, beautiful
It's supposed to be like this
I accept everything
It's supposed to be like this

That day, That day
I lay down beside myself
In this feeling of pain, sadness
Scared, small, climbing, crawling
Towards the light
And it's all that I see and
I'm tired and I'm right
And I'm wrong
And it's beautiful

That day, That day
What a mess, what a marvel
We're all the same
But no one thinks so
And it's okay
And I'm small and I'm divine
And it's beautiful
And it's coming
And it's already here
And it's absolutely perfect

That day, That day
When everything was a mess
And everything was in place
And there's too much hurt
Sad, small, scared, alone
And everyone's a cynic
And it's hard and it's sweet
But it's supposed to be like this

That day, That day
When I sat in the sun
And I thought and I cried
Cause I'm sad, scared, small
Alone, strong
And I'm nothing and I'm true
Only a brave man can break through
And it's all okay
Yeah, it's okay

That day, That day
I lay down beside myself
In this feeling of pain, sadness
Scared, small, climbing, crawling
Towards the light
And it's all that I see and
I'm tired and I'm right
And I'm wrong
And it's beautiful

That day, That day
What a mess, what a marveleous mess
We're all the same
But no one thinks so
And it's okay
And I'm small and I'm divine
And it's beautiful
And it's coming
And it's already here
And it's absolutely perfect

That day, That day
That day, That day

That day, That day
When I lay down beside myself
In this feeling of pain, sadness
Scared, small, climbing, crawling
Towards the light
And it's all that I see and
I'm tired and I'm right
And I'm wrong
And it's beautiful

That day, That day
What a mess, what a marveleous mess
We're all the same
But no one thinks so
And it's okay
And I'm small and I'm divine
And it's beautiful
And it's coming
And it's already here
And it's absolutely perfect

That day, That day
That day, That day
That day, That day
That day, That day

So sweet, can you feel it? (Can you feel it?)
Are you here?
Are you with me?
I can feel it
And its beautiful

That day, That day
That day, absolutely perfect

Beauty on the Fire

length: 4:21
Here it comes again
Cannot out run my desire
Cover my decent
And throw the
Beauty on the fire
Drawn towards the edge
Do I assume I could fly
Every secret shared
Why do I drink
The feelings dry
Don't go too far
Limitation scars

Tonight
Could I be lost forever
To drown
My soul in
Sensory
Pleasure
Sensory
Pleasure

Here it comes again
You raise the bar even higher
I cannot catch my breath
So throw the
Beauty on the fire
Don't push too hard
Limitaion scars

Satellite

length: 3:09
Do you lie awake in the morning
Trying to find a reason to call me
Cause honey all that I've been doing
Is thinking about your smile
But none of this is necessary with me baby
You see baby
'Cause I like to keep it all simple

'Cause you are my Satellite
So I'm trying to keep you in sight
But with all this space
Can we keep it alive
Keep it alive
So I'm asking you baby
Are you coming down tonight

There's something in the air tonight
That feels right
But you're keeping me guessing
and I'm finding it hard to catch your eye

So move a little closer
It's alright
I know what you're thinking
You've been circling me for a while

Do You Love?

length: 4:44
writer: Natalie Imbruglia, Gary Clark
Child, it's broke
And I feel you
Slipping away
Child, you spoke
And the world
Fell silent again
Do you love
Do you need love
Child, undone
By fear of falling
Through cracks
Child, by one mistake
You've lost your way back
(Something's gotta
Turn you round)

Do you love
Do you need love
When your angels shout
Is your heart strung out

Do you love
Do you need love
When your angels fall
Have you lost it all

Child be still
In the storm
To wave us goodbye
Child we will
Return to dance
With the sky

Do you love
Do you need love
When your angels shout
Is your heart strung out

Do you love
Do you need love
When your angels fall
Have you lost it all

Do you love
Do you need love
When your angels cry
Does your spirit die

Wrong Impression

length: 4:18
writer: Gary Clark, Natalie Imbruglia
Calling out, calling out
Haven’ you wondered
Why I'm always alone when you're in my dreams?
Calling out, calling out
Haven’ you wondered
Why you are finding it hard just looking at me?
I want you, but I want you to understand
I need you I love you
Didn't want to leave you with the wrong impression
Didn't want to leave you with my last confession,
Yeah, of love
Wasn't tryin' to pull you in the wrong direction
All I want to do is try to make a connection yeah
Yeah, of love
Fallin’ out, fallin' out
Have you ever wondered, if this was ever more
Than a crazy idea
Falling out, falling out
Have you ever wondered
What we could have been if you'd only let me in
I want you, but I want you to understand
I miss you, I love you

Didn't want to leave you with the wrong impression
Didn't want to leave you with my last confession,
Yeah, of love
Wasn't tryin' to pull you in the wrong direction
All I want to do is try to make a connection yeah
Yeah, of love
Have you ever wondered?
I need you I love you

Didn't want to leave you with the wrong impression
Didn't want to leave you with my last confession,
Yeah, of love
Wasn't tryin' to pull you in the wrong direction
All I want to do is try to make a connection yeah
Yeah, of love
I didn’t want you leave you there. I’m calling out, yeah!
Wasn't tryin' to pull you in the wrong direction
Well I’m calling out, yeah


Thanks to Rajesh Meesarapu for the correction

Goodbye

length: 5:01
Every days the same
I feel them merge
I try to separate
Resist the urge

But they tell me I'll be fine
That it'll all get better
Just try to write it down
Or put it in a letter

Still the words won't play,
And there's no easy way to say

Goodbye, goodbye

Keep my head on straight
And don't look down
When all I've pushed away
I'm losing ground

But they tell me I'll be fine
That it'll all get better
Just try to write it down
Or put it in a letter

Still the words won't play
And there no easy way to say

Goodbye, goodbye

And from the sidelines watch me
Fall down
Don't understand the things I do
But they tell me I'll be fine
As long I keep moving
Just try to write it down
Till things just keep improving


Still the words won't play
And there's no easy way to say

Goodbye, goodbye

Everything Goes

length: 4:02
You live your life
You live like an island
Satisfied
You live for the moment
Here you come
You make it look easy
I bet you smile in your sleep
Are you smiling at me
You live your life
You live like an island
Surrounded by
Water and silence
Mmm there you go
You make it look easy
I bet you laugh at yourself
Are you laughing at me

'Cause sometimes anything goes
When you're looking at me
And sometimes everything goes
When you're looking at me

So come on, come on
Everything goes
(When you're looking at me)
Come on, come on
Everything goes
(Sometimes when
You're smiling at me)
Come on, come on
Everything goes

Come on

You live your life
You live like an island
What is it like
I wish I could hold it
Mmm there you go
Making it look easy
I bet you like how it feels
But do you feel me

So come on, come on
Anything goes
Come on, come on
Everything goes
Come on, come on
Everything goes

'Cause sometimes
Anything goes
When you're looking at me
And sometimes
Everything goes

Hurricane

length: 3:39
(First Verse)
It came on like a hurricane
And I don't understand
And it moved me
Like a slow dance
Still I don't understand

It pushed me like a tailwind
And I don't understand

And it came in
Through the back door
And I don't understand
Still I don't understand
You're all that I could be
And I'm falling on my knees

(Chorus)
Hurricane
You pulled me out of the past
You landed me in today
Hurricane

(Second Verse)
You picked me like a cherry
It picked me like a cherry
And I don't understand
And it killed me with the craving
Still I don't understand

It thrilled me to starvation
And I don't understand

And it stripped me ugly naked
Still I don't understand
And I don't understand

(Chorus)
Hurricane
You pulled me out of the past
You landed me in today
Hurricane
You pulled me out of the past
You walked me into tomorrow
Hurricane

(Third Verse)
You're all that I could need
And I'm falling on my knees
You're all that I could be
And I'm falling on my knees

(Chorus)
Hurricane
You pulled me out of the past
You landed me in today
Hurricane



Sunlight

length: 5:02
writer: Natalie Imbruglia, Gary Clark
Today we don´t know
Who we are
Ashamed, hiding behind the scars
Too many times
We let the things we feel
Get in the way of letting us
Heal the wounds
That open in the dark
Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever taste clouds?
Did you ever touch space?
Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever truly live?

So walk, in time
To life´s refrain
Relax, don´t do it
To yourself again
Decaying yourself with
All the love you won´t give
Killing yourself about the way
You don´t live now
´Cause you´re not
Gonna live forever

Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever taste clouds?
Did you ever touch space?
Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever truly live?

Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever breathe hope?
Did you ever
Dance with grace?
Did you ever feel
Sunlight on your face?
Did you ever truly live?

Shikaiya (For Billy)

length: 3:40
Five years old
A life that made me shy
I'm telling you
Shikaiya made me feel like I could fly
There she was so crazy
but she was on fire
the smile behind the door of every answer to my questions
you made it seem like everything was possible
and that's where you stood out from everybody else
Shikaiya
That's what your about and you should never lose yourself
Shikaiya
down the phone years and miles apart
we try to find the magic we used to bounce from heart to heart
but you don't seem to believe in anything today
I wonder if your dreams got smashed
upon the rocks of that old bay
you made me feel like everything was beautiful
and that's where you stood out from everybody else
Shikaiya
and that's what your about and you should never lose yourself
Shikaiya
Shikaiya nothing
mmm Shikaiya
Shikaiya
Shikaiya
that's what your about and you should never lose yourself
Shikaiya
Shikaiya

Talk in Tongues

length: 3:30
When you beat on that drum

Talk in that tongue

You're just scratching

On the surface

So tell me what it means

A whisper to a scream

Slowly fades away

Then you wake up

And tomorrow is today

And you're crying

Crying like a baby

Caught between the tides

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way



Do you know where I've been

Walls are caving in

It moves across a wire

There no need to talk

I crawl as you walk

Pushing me away

Then you wake up

And tomorrow is today

And you're crying

Crying like a baby

Caught between the tides

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way



Flowers in the bin

Close this hole I'm in

Everything was one

Nothing gets undone

You pay the bill

You lost your will

Just run away until

you wake up

And tomorrow is today

And you're crying

Crying like a baby

Caught between the tides

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way

Butterflies

length: 4:57
Swallow purple terror candy
Don't forget to breathe
Sickened by the wanting
And drowning from the need
This dichromatic vision
Of one who does not care
To sipping cocktail sedatives
Two months to hide somewhere

Butterflies, butterflies
Cut the stomach out and hand it over
Butterflies, butterflies
My heart will be the bridge that you walk over

The wolf has caught the chicken
And now I feel unsteady
Emotions on the blink again
So kick me when you're ready
Here lies a violet coffin
The death of my control
Along with all my skeletons
They put them in the hole

Butterflies, butterflies
Cut the stomach out and hand it over
Butterflies, butterflies
My heart will be the bridge that you walk over

Sickened by the notion
I give myself again
Choking on the bullet, the gun that's found a friend
So raise your glass to sorrow
And drink to all the pain
Tie a silver ribbon around
The pieces that remain

Butterflies, butterflies
Cut the stomach out and hand it over
Butterflies, butterflies
My heart will be the bridge that you walk over

Come September

length: 4:11
Her bones will ache
Her mouth will shake
And as the passion dies
Her magic heart will break
She'll fly to France
'Cause there's no chance
No hope for Cinderella
Come September
Her violet sky
Will need to cry
'Cause if it doesn't rain
Then everything will die
She needs to heal
She needs to feel
Something more than tender
Come September

Everything wrong
Gonna be all right
Come September

The souls that burn
Will twist and turn and
Find you in the dark
No matter where you run
But lost her spark
And what she's pushing for
She can't remember

Everything wrong
Gonna be all right
Come September

Her eyes surrender
Her cry a crying shame
Coming undone
Is she ever gonna
Feel the same
She will run
She's gona drink the sun
Shining just for you
Instead of everyone
And so it goes
She'll stand alone
And try no to remember
Come September

Everything wrong
Gonna be all right
Come September
She's made her mark
