Aliens Music

BABY’S LIKE AN ALIEN

I can see you falling back through time
That movie in your head is only gonna make you cry
You say, “Feeling like an alien, gotta grow a second skin”
And I’m guessing something bad just forced its way back in
Baby’s like an alien, baby’s like an alien…

Love took you all the way down
Left you broke and beaten
Now, you gotta keep believing
There’s something true inside you
Something true

You know we’ll never know how he got out alive
Your courage still amazes me when no one’s on your side
All the money in the world couldn’t make you change your mind
All the money in the world

Love took you all the way down
Left you broke and beaten
Now you gotta keep believing
There’s something true inside you
Something true

The sky is ruby red
Your eyes are perfect blue
The night is velvet black
Your eyes are perfect blue
And there’s no turning back

LOCKDOWN

Black out, lock down
Black out, lock down

“I can’t see the stars tonight
I can taste the fear”
Little darling, close your eyes
They can’t do that here
They won’t do that here
“I can’t unsee the things we saw
Can’t wash away the stain”
Little darling, close your eyes, close your eyes

Black out, lock down
Black out, lock down

Little darling, close your eyes
They can’t do that here
They can’t do that

I’m just trying to understand
I’m  hoping I can find someone to explain
Now we’re running down that road
Now we’re rotting in the sand
A truly brutal game

Down to the boulevard and get in line
You get yours and I’ll get mine
Pulling on the lever till the shit comes down
Break all the windows in this dirty town
Down to the boulevard and get in line

PURSUIT OF LOVE

On his knees tonight, leaking shame
Checks his script, forgets his name
Oh, my love, are we still here?
Are we still here?

The river runs over it
The river runs under it
The rivers runs through it
The rivers runs over it
The river runs under it
The river runs through it
The river runs

He takes the car downtown to play his part
Oh, my love, are we still here?
Are we’re still here? Are we still here?

The river runs over it
The rivers runs under it
The river runs through it
The river runs

Have you heard the news tonight?
Have you seen the news?
Fifty souls have taken flight

The river runs over it…

SONG 5

This song does not dare to name
The things we find inside ourselves
And do not want to share in thought or word or deed
With men like you and me

This song was scrawled across my hand
Howled into the wind
Sent spinning through the night
On whisky sodden wings
This song is all we have to sing
This song

This song grieves a broken baby doll
Splinters in the dirt
Flesh spitting on the bone
In a place we still call home
We sing
This song

And now the stars are black and cold
The stars are black and cold
The stars

WON’T LET GO

Just a moment in time, for your beauty to shine, shine, shine
Bring a man to his knees, watch him begging please, please, please
And now, I’m back here again, walking streets in the pouring rain
And you – a face in the crowd, you got me calling your name out loud

And I won’t let go –  there’s nowhere else for me to go
So I hit rewind on all the scenes I leave behind

With you – it’s no walk in the the park
With you – no line from some lonely heart
With you – this is my message of love
This is the day I’ve been dreaming of

And I won’t let go and no one else will ever know
How much pain you’ll find in all the things I leave behind
No, I won’t let go and no one else will ever know
That I hit rewind on all the scenes I leave behind, leave behind

With you, I know my life could be so much better
With you, I can’t disguise the kind of love I feel inside
So I won’t let go and no one else will ever know
how much pain you’ll find in all the things you leave behind
So I won’t let go and no one else will ever know
That with each new day I find a moment I can leave behind with you
