I Found God


Look my way, I can see your reflection
Heat from the floor, I can feel your intentions
Holy water, let me drink your perfection
Hey girl do I know your name?
Two years gone now, we're breathing the fire
You and I, we divide our desire
Sheets fly fast, no one preaching to the choir
Hey girl now you know my name

Wherever you run, wherever you go
I, I want you alone, I need you to know

That I found God
In your body, body, body
I found love
With somebody, body, body, yeah
And every single day we'll be walking on water, water together
Cause I found God
In your body, body, body, yeah

You're my queen, I'm the king at the altar
Everything that you need I can offer
Hallelujah may the love not falter
Hey girl let me hear you sing

I want you alone, I need you to know

That I found God
In your body, body, body
I found love
With somebody, body, body, yeah
And every single day we'll be walking on water, water together
Cause I found God
In your body, body, body, yeah

Surrender my heart
Surrender myself
We do it for glory
Time will tell
Surrender your heart
Surrender yourself
We do it for glory
Time will tell

Cause I found God
In your body, body, body
I found love
With somebody, body, body
I found God
In your body, body, body
I found love
With somebody, body, body, yeah
Cause I found God
In your body, body, body, yeah

Permission Slip

I'm pissed, I'm stripped
Of all my faith and everyone I missed
You talk, big talk
Like you're so right and I'm so wrong

But I don't need no
Permission slip
I don't need no
Kiss on the lips
I'm doing fine, doing my time
Buying wine and drinking all alone at night

So cool it down and tell me
I'll be fine by the morning
We're free to run run run run run
We're free to do whatever we want

So cool it down and tell me
I'll be fine by the morning
We're free to run run run run run
We're free to do whatever we want

You crash, I laugh
You take me for a fool while you do your math
Been pushed around
One too many times, now the money's out
But I don't need no, permission slip
I don't need no, kiss on the lips
I'm doing fine, doing my time
Buying wine and drinking all alone at night

So cool it down and tell me
I'll be fine by the morning
We're free to run, run, run, run, run
We're free to do whatever we want
So cool it down and tell me
"I'll be fine by the morning"
We're free to run, run, run, run, run
We're free to do whatever we want

Beggars

Begging on a train can buy you a lot of things
Like Barbour jackets and wedding rings
God is on my side from time to-time
4, 5, 6 7th heaven, 8 9
Lives I've been living still getting mine
Black tar swipecard, kid get in line
Chin up young beggars it's a new day
Here's a little something that I had to say...

Don't stop, don't give up, don't give up
When you've got the world circling, circling around
Don't stop, don't give up, don't give up
When you've got the world circling, tumbling down

Begging on a train can buy you a lot of things
Like turn a trick chicks and trampolines
God is on my side from time to time
Coming up for air, fight to survive
I could use a week's paid vacation
I could use a little motivation
Rise up young beggars it's a new day
Here's a little something that I had to say...

Don't stop, don't give up, don't give up
When you've got the world circling, circling around
Don't stop, don't give up, don't give up
When you've got the world circling, tumbling down

Begging on a train, begging on a train
Begging on a train, begging on a train
Holding on to my dreams before they go, before they go up in flames again

Don't stop, don't give up, don't give up
When you've got the world circling, circling around
Don't stop, don't give up, don't give up
When you've got the world circling, tumbling down
Don't stop, don't give up, don't give up
When you've got the world circling, circling around
Don't stop, don't give up, don't give up
When you've got the world circling, tumbling down

OUTCAST

Every second every moment every day is new

Driving all around this great big city with you

Working nine to five staying up all night

From dusk till dawn motorcycle ride impromptu

 

Wake up every day just to waste my paycheck

Living the escape in the discoteque

I wrecked your ride on the boulevard

90 mph didn't get us very far now

 

Outcast from our lovers

Outcast to each other

Outcast from myself I know

 

Outcast from our mothers

Outcast to each other

Outcast from the one I love

 

Out of gas out of money out of time well spent

And pretty girls don't pay the rent oh heaven

I’ve learned my lesson not to fall too hard

For someone that is bound just to break apart oh well

 

Wake up every day just to waste my paycheck

Living the escape in the discoteque

I wrecked your ride on the boulevard

90mph didn't get us very far now

 

Outcast from our lovers

Outcast to each other

Outcast from myself I know

 

Outcast from our mothers

Outcast to each other

Outcast from the one I love

 

Wake up every day just to waste my paycheck

Living the escape in the discoteque

I wrecked your ride on the boulevard

90mph didn't get us very far now

Outcast from our lovers

Outcast to each other

Outcast from myself I know

 

Outcast from our mothers

Outcast to each other

Outcast from the one i love

A BIT OUT OF TIME

Thinking of a way

We could embrace the change

Thinking of a way

We could alleviate the pain

You and I

Are parallel lines

Call the police

There's a riot in the streets

 

Do I need a person to make me complete

From walking through the memories I hope to keep

Do I need a lover to hold me tight

After everyday in the war I fight

 

Wish we could stop the clock

And dance in the dark

We're just a bit out of time

Wish we could stop and rewind

We're just a bit out of time

We're just a bit out of time

 

Wish I could explain

All the feelings we faked

Wish I could explain

Why I've been missing you today

 

You and I

are parallel lines

All that we need

Is a just a little air to breathe

 

Do I need a person to make me complete

From walking through the memories I hope to keep

Do I need a lover to hold me tight

After everyday in the war I fight

 

Wish we could stop the clock

And dance in the dark?

We're just a bit out of time

Wish we could stop and rewind

We're just a bit out of time

We're just a bit out of time

 

FADING FRIENDS

You know I wonder, will I ever see you after tonight my love?

We could discover, all the pieces of the puzzle that we thought we knew.

 

Cause when the lights fade low, and the kids blow smoke.

And the shots they flow like Niagara.

We could forget about time, we could fully unwind.

Like a falcon in flight tonight. Tonight.

 

Cause it's a quarter past eleven and the nights closing in.

You've got fading lovers and your fading friends

It's a quarter past twelve and the music is loud.

You've got fading lovers in the in and the out crowd.

So what.

 

You've got me smiling a social butterfly you float through this room. Uh oh.

We could be loving every moment that is now until 2. Uh oh.

 

Cause when the lights fade low, and the kids blow smoke.

And the shots they flow like Niagara.

We could forget about time, we could fully unwind

like a falcon in flight tonight. Tonight.

 

Cause it's a quarter past eleven and the nights closing in.

You've got fading lovers and your fading friends

It's a quarter past twelve and the music is loud.

You've got fading lovers in the in and the out crowd.

 

LA NY VERSAILLES SHANGHAI
HAVE LOVE WILL TRAVEL CATCH ME ON THE REDEYE

LA NY VERSAILLES SHANGHAI
HAVE LOVE WILL TRAVEL CATCH ME ON THE REDEYE

LA NY VERSAILLES SHANGHAI
HAVE LOVE WILL TRAVEL CATCH ME ON THE REDEYE

LA NY VERSAILLES SHANGHAI

 

Cause it's a quarter past eleven and the nights closing in.

You've got fading lovers and your fading friends

It's a quarter past twelve and the music is loud.

You've got fading lovers in the in and the out crowd.

So what.

 

NOT AS COOL AS ME

Girl, you suck

Girl, you make me spit up

My heart, my soul, and my guts

Now I'm drunk, strung out on the lust

 

I'm your boy, I'm your toy, I'm just a heart you’re playing with

I'm so dumb, I'm so hung, up on all your little tricks

 

This is why you're not as cool

This is why you're not as cool

This is why

This is why

This is why you're not as cool as me

 

Girl you project

Everything I regret

Your clothing, your money, your unmade bed.

I'm sorry, I'm not such a mess.

 

I'm your boy, I'm your toy, I'm just a heart your playing with

I'm so dumb, I'm so hung, up on all your little tricks

This is why you're not as cool

This is why you're not as cool

This is why

This is why

This is why you're not as cool as me
