EJECT - Lyrics

(Side A)

Sober (Connelly)

You've had enough, you're breaking
With eyes wired shut, you're taken
Yes everyone loves you, sweetheart

You want it all, you'll get there
You're inside out, forsaking.
Yes everyone here loves your make up. Make up

Just sober up

I don't know why but I'm sober
I don't know why but I'm misunderstood
And after everything, we're gone too soon

December came, and faded. 
And even now I don't understand why you waited
Better tell me once again because you faked it, and you didn't know what to do about that.

I don't know why but I'm sober
I don't know why but I'm misunderstood
And after everything, we're gone too soon

Science + Fear (Connelly)

Late last night I saw a silent waterfall
It held me as a fell into the cold
I should have let it go, I should have kept on running
But I lit lonely fires on my own

If you want to run
Then I give up
I'm not about to chase someone I love

Stars could fall but still, I'd look up for you
Every door I open locks shut before I can walk through
And if I give up, would you forget about the view
So we sink apart, and under we'll be soon

I saw them, man I stalled
Electric animals. I fired all of my arrows as they fell
But then I gave up like you knew I would
Like you knew I should have left well alone

Stars could fall but still, I'd look up for you
Every door I open locks shut before I can walk through
And if I give up, would you forget about the view
So we sink apart, and under we'll be soon

If fire alone could bury this cold, would you make it easy on yourself
With science and fear, we both disappear, and I won't love anybody else
I've shot arrows at stars, collided like cars, now I'm forever in your debt 
I'm forever in your debt
Still, I'd look up for you

Stars could fall but still, I'd look up for you
Every door I open locks shut before I can walk through
And if I give up, would you forget about the view
So we sink apart, and under we'll be soon

Just Can't Say Goodbye (Connelly/Marston/Wells)

Maybe I forgot to say the words
And maybe I forgot to tell you how I feel
Another day and I'll be someone else
And you might not recognize me

Maybe we gave up too easily
I told myself that I was over anyway
It's fear that hurts us more than anyone
And now the fear is caving in
And I'm nothing without you

I won't walk away
I won't leave
I know it's not that easy
I just wanna tell you I, I just can't say goodbye

Maybe I destroyed the evidence
And maybe you just kept on knocking when no-one was home
Maybe we can blame the circumstances, but you know they're only an excuse
And I'm nothing without you

I won't walk away
I won't leave
I know it's not that easy
I just wanna tell you why I won't I won't walk away
I won't leave
I know it's not that easy
I just wanna tell you I, I just can't say goodbye

But I could take another chance
Yeah maybe I can turn this around
Because if all of this love we have is real, then that's a start

I'm nothing without you

I won't walk away
I won't leave
I know it's not that easy
I just wanna tell you why I won't I won't walk away
I won't leave
I know it's not that easy
I just wanna tell you I, I just can't say goodbye

I just can't say goodbye

Carnival Song (Connelly)

Your blindfold kiss tricks me
A conversation nearly hits me head on
How did I miss that one
Bring back the stationary shops, with paper clips and glue I can stand up 

The careless carers do not care
They cover up all of those beautiful things we made with love
And it's just hit me that I'm the only one, who's seen your green eyes changing

So let's celebrate 
Cos' all of the love we make
It helps us to elevate ourselves into the light, into the light, into the light

This carnival is passing me
With clowns and drums, the noise it penetrates my skin
The sound of cars becomes a secondary thing
Just like a drug, it kicks me over, and then I join in

So let's celebrate 
Cos' all of the love we make
It helps us to elevate ourselves into the light, into the light, into the light

So gather up your home-made
I'm running out of everything I ever saved
We'll do without
They say that money drags you down in different ways
So hold me closer than before, we'll be okay

Come on and celebrate 
Cos' all of the love we make
It helps us to elevate ourselves into the light, into the light, into the light

(Join in)

Come on and celebrate 
Cos' all of the love we make
It helps us to elevate ourselves into the light, into the light, into the light

Wide Open (Connelly)

She sat down and sang, so softly
She hardly breathed
Her beautiful melodies helped me forget what I was before

But don't make me sad again,
Open my eyes, open wide, open wide

She don't sing to me lately, she hardly breathes
Just a stranger to me

But I'll never forget what we were, back then

But don't make me sad again,
Don't make me cry again
Don't make me sad again,
Open my eyes, open wide, open wide

 

The Hurricane is Beautiful (Connelly)

I might die for a hurricane
But my past puts me to shame
You couldn't see what you could have been
But you couldn't dream your enemies 

So wait for a light to shine you
And set your shadows free from your soul

I might live forever, but I sure won't anyone
Cos your hurricane is beautiful 
And your life will shine again

So wait for a light to shine you
And set your shadows free from your soul

They can't tell you what to write
In your head, there's a lifetime that you never had
And in my life, I'd sacrifice just one smile for the heartache that I never had

So wait for a light to shine you
And set your shadows free from your soul

I might live forever, but I sure won't anyone like you
Cos your hurricane is beautiful 
And your life will shine again

So wait for a light to shine you
And set your shadows free from your soul

They can't tell you what to write
In your head, there's a lifetime that you never had
And in my life, I'd sacrifice just one smile for the heartache that I never had

They can't tell you what to write
In your head, there's a lifetime that you never
And in my life, I'd sacrifice just one smile for the heartache that I never had

So wait for a light to shine you
And set your shadows free from your soul

By The Hour (Connelly)

Time keeps chasing everything
By I'm just trying to slow down
Time keeps chasing everything 
By I'm quite happy where I am

So go, go tell all your friends
Tell them I'm a liar 
I wanna pretend that we're not dying by the hour

Life's becoming a routine
But I am been doing what I please

So go, go tell all your friends
Tell them I'm a liar 
I wanna pretend that we're not dying by the hour

And it's so long Layla, and so long Layla
It's so long, so long

So go, go tell all your friends
Tell them I'm a liar 
I wanna pretend that we're not dying by the hour

Yeah so go, go tell all your friends
Tell them I'm a liar 
I wanna pretend that we're not dying by the hour

Catch The Sun (Connelly)

I'm falling to pieces
How can I release this
I cannot decide
I'm stuck in the middle of your loneliness, oh but I don't fit in

Tonight I've seen the end and nothing here's real

Go where I want, when I want, catch the sun if I like
Can I count the lines on your face, shows the time we've embraced

We've embraced, we've embraced

So I don't connect with my soap-opera side when I'm falling in line
This daily routine wears me when I go out
It's a desperate decline

To go where I want, when I want, catch the sun if I like
Can I count the lines on your face, shows the time we've embraced

We've embraced, we've embraced

But I'm losing you

Go where I want, when I want, catch the sun if I like
Go where I want, when I want, catch the sun if I like

Catch the sun

Over and over and over and over and over and over again

Like you

Gold Pearls (Connelly)

I need somebody right now
But there's nobody like you
I need somebody right now 
Cos now I'm stark and cold,
And choked on your gold pearls
They fill up my eyes

Think I left something back there
Cos there's always something I lack
I think I left something back there
But now it's dark and so I sold all your gold pearls
I set you to stone

And in slow motion, I slide into the sea
Weightless, I recline, with your gold heavy eyes
Don't save me this time
Slowly I've become my worst enemy

Don't Stay Sad (Connelly)

Listen now
Don't wait for someone else to change your mind
Oh no, you've got it all wrong, just made a mistake,
So listen I've got something to say

It's not all the bad
It's not your fault if you're sad today
But don't stay sad in that way you do
