    17 Again

    Yay though we venture through
    The Valley of the stars
    You and all your jewelry
    And my bleeding heart

    Who couldn’t be together
    And who could not be apart

    We should’ve jumped out
    Of that airplane after all
    Flying skyways overhead
    It wasn’t hard to fall

    And I had so many crashes
    That I couldn’t feel
    At all…

    And it feels like
    I’m seventeen again
    Feels like I’m seventeen

    Times might break you
    God forsake you
    Leave you burned and bruised
    Innocence will teach you
    What it feels like to be used

    Thought that you’d done everything
    You didn’t have a clue

    And it feels like
    I’m seventeen again
    Feels like I’m seventeen

    Looking from the outside in
    Some things never change

    Hey hey I’m a million miles away
    Funny how it seems like yesterday …

    All those fake celebrities
    And all those viscous queens
    All the stupid papers
    And the stupid magazines

    Sweet dreams are made of anything
    That gets you in the scene

    And it feels like
    I’m seventeen again
    Feels like I’m seventeen

    Sweet dreams are made of this
    Who am I to disagree
    I travel the world and the seven seas
    Everybody’s looking for something
    Yea

    I Saved The World Today

    Monday finds you like a bomb
    That’s been left ticking there too long
    You’re bleeding
    Some days there’s nothing left to learn
    From the point of no return
    You’re leaving

    Hey hey I saved the world today
    Everybody’s happy now
    The bad things gone away
    And everybody’s happy now
    The good thing’s here to stay
    Please let it stay

    There’s a million mouths to feed
    And I’ve got everything i need
    I’m breathing
    And there’s a hurting thing inside
    But I’ve got everything to hide
    I’m grieving

    Hey hey I saved the world today
    Everybody’s happy now
    The bad things gone away
    And everybody’s happy now
    The good thing’s here to stay
    Please let it stay

    Doo doo doo doo doo the good thing

    Hey hey I saved the world today
    Everybody’s happy now
    The bad things gone away
    And everybody’s happy now
    The good thing’s here to stay
    Please let it stay

    Everybody’s happy now

    Beautiful Child

    Something that I said
    Made you wear a frown
    The way you hang your head
    Has made the tears come down

    But don’t you wear a sigh
    My beautiful child

    You know it doesn’t burn
    When you touch the sun
    So don’t be concerned
    My golden one
    You’re gonna reach the sky
    Fly …
    beautiful child

    There is no other place
    The human race
    Is running out of space
    There is no better love
    And human love
    Is what it takes

    And I’ll be at your side
    When you’re falling down
    You’ll be feeling fine
    When you hit the ground
    So don’t slip away
    Stay …
    Beautiful child

    Anything But Strong

    Why do you hurt yourself?
    You do it very well
    You do it so politely
    That you couldn’t even tell
    When everything has changed
    You think you’re not to blame
    How come you keep on talking
    When the whole thing feels so strange?….

    But seeing
    Is not the same as believing
    When everything goes wrong
    You’re anything but strong

    It’s all bittersweet
    Outside in the street
    The grass is growing greener
    Underneath your feet
    We come and go
    The deep water flows
    Tiny leaves from smaller seeds
    To tall trees do grow

    But wanting
    Is not the same thing as needing
    There’s no need to pretend
    You can’t turn back again
    And loving
    Is so different to keeping
    The hurting that we send
    Is so difficult to mend

    Hold on to the good things
    That keep you from falling down
    Hold on to the good things
    That keep you from falling down

    How my heart aches
    More than I can take
    What are we really learning
    When we make the same mistakes?

    Where is your hope?
    It’s all gone up in smoke
    You used to be so funny
    Now it’s just the same old joke

    And laughing
    Is so very close to crying
    When there’s nothing to defend
    It gets you in the end
    And living
    Is so very close to dying
    You struggle on and on
    To find where you belong

    Where do you belong?

    Peace Is Just A Word

    Stop the world
    Turn out the sun
    I’m so tired of it turning round

    Stop the world
    Call it a day
    Leave it all behind
    Leave it that way

    Peace
    Is just a word
    Is just a word

    Stop the world
    Just let it bleed
    Well we’ve taken more
    Than everything we need

    Stop the world
    Just shut it down
    Just shut it down shut it down
    There’s no point in it
    Spinning round

    Peace
    Is just a word
    Is just a word

    Stop the world
    Take it any where
    It’s just that
    Living here is more
    Than I can bear

    Stop the world
    Just pack it in
    Well we’ve reached the point
    Where no one ever wins
    No one ever wins!

    Peace
    Is just a word
    It’s just a word

    I've Tried Everything

    The truth of life is the greatest gift
    But I don’t think I can make it fit
    And who would guess it would come to this
    When I’ve tried everything

    And I should know but I can’t explain
    The endless noise sounding in my brain
    Who would’ve thought that you could feel such pain
    When you’ve tried everything

    Yea.. you’re a loser now
    Yea.. you’re a loser now

    I should be cool
    But I’m burning hot
    I should be good
    But I fell apart
    Don’t look at me now don’t even start
    Cause I’ve tried everything

    Yea.. You’re a loser now
    Yea.. You’re a loser now

    I Want It All

    I want it all
    I want it all
    I don’t know what it is
    But I want it all

    I want it all
    I want it all
    I don’t know what it is
    But I want it all

    And I want it now
    I want it now
    I don’t know what it is
    But I want it now

    Yea yea yea

    Of the same old stuff
    It don’t make me happy
    And it’s never enough

    Gimme gimme some more
    Of the same old stuff
    It don’t make me happy
    And it’s never enough

    Peel back my skin
    So that you can see
    What I really am
    The true colour of me

    Peel back my skin
    So that you can see
    What I really am
    The true colour of me

    Yea yea yea
    Yea yea yea

    Yea yea yea

    My True Love

    My true love is sitting on a pile of stones
    And he’s wondering to himself
    Oh where did I go wrong?

    My true love has found himself alone
    And he’s sorry for it all
    And for the hurt we’ve done

    And I’ve given more than I can take
    Fallen for the same mistake
    Promises were made to break
    What will save us now?

    And I don’t want to remember
    And I don’t want to remember

    My true love is a saccharine kind of pill
    That tastes too sweet for words
    And cannot be fulfilled

    My true love is a dangerous china cup
    With all the broken pieces
    That cannot be picked up

    Now all the colours left to run
    All the dreams have been undone
    Love has left me standing here
    Raging at the sun

    And I don’t want to remember
    And I don’t want to remember

    Forever

    When we were young
    With time to waste
    Everything was clear and good
    Thought we could live
    For a thousand years
    But yesterday is done
    And tomorrow’s yet to come
    You’ll never know

    Forever
    Now that you’re gone
    Gone forever
    But the day goes on
    Forever
    Yea yea yea
    Forever

    And I remember when we were fools
    Everything was me and you
    Thought we were kings
    With time to kill
    But yesterday is done
    And tomorrow’s yet to come
    You live and learn

    Forever
    Now that you’re gone
    Gone forever
    But the day goes on
    Forever
    Yea yea yea
    Forever

    Some people never take the time to try
    The way you live’s the way you die
    The stuff of life’s in short supply
    And if it sometimes hits you strong
    Remembering that things go wrong
    The song of life is just a song
    And everything goes on and on

    (You know I ran right up
    To the top of the hill
    And then I fell right down
    But I made it still
    You know I thought I’d die
    But I never will
    You gotta live this life alone)

    Forever
    Now that you’re gone
    Gone forever
    But the day goes on
    Forever
    Yea yea yea
    Forever

    Lifted

    Don’t be afraid when you
    Walk through the dark
    Just when you feel that
    Your day fell apart
    Stay strong
    Keep holding on
    Clear skies ahead and the dark day is done
    Keep on lifted
    Keep on lifted

    I wish you everything
    That you could want
    Just when the day finds you
    Turned back to front
    Stay clear
    Rescue is near
    When you feel
    That you’re drowned in despair
    Keep on lifted
    keep on lifted

    You’re a bird in the sky now baby
    Earthbound
    Feet on the ground
    Now you can find peace at last
    Now you can find peace at last
