DOGTAIL ROAD (2014) – LYRICS

 

Dog 3 small

 

DOGTAIL ROAD

Fairytales are stories for
The ones who always search for more
Every night you take a walk
Way down the dogtail road

Every day’s a secret war
Left inside your nightstand drawer
Every day another sigh
To help you stay alive

All the years that’s left in the rain
Still makes you feel the pain

But tonight the lights are shining, you’re singing that tune
The old dogtail road is where I’m going
Tonight the lights are shining, you’re singing that tune

Every day’s a little less
Of all the things that you possess
Nothing’s worth more than the ones
All made of flesh and blood

Just like the girl you’re dreaming of
Never knew the reason for
All the ink spilled in her name
Will make you go insane

See the way she’s looking at you
It breaks your heart in two

The moment you ask, the moment of truth
The way that she wags her tail at you (as if she already knew)
The non-stop loving trail down the dogtail road
Me and my dogtail road

Tonight the lights are shining, you’re singing that tune
The old dogtail road is where I’m going
Tonight the lights are shining, you’re singing that tune
The dogtail road is where I’m going

Every day’s another drawer
Left with secrets to explore
Every day another lie
To help you tell the truth

 

WITH YOU

Believe me, I’ve been awake
At last the sunshine breaks
Through the darkness of my mind
Leave my troubles behind

I don’t know where you go, or where I go
All I know’s I wanna go with you
If I fall to sleep tonight and stay asleep
All I know’s I’m gonna wait for you, somewhere

Believe me, I’d give the world
To be that shiny pearl
That you see in the distance
When your days are done

Tonight I’m on my own
So close to the truth, so far from home

I don’t know where you go or where I go
All I know’s I wanna go with you
If I fall to sleep tonight and stay asleep
All I know’s I’m gonna wait for you, somewhere

I don’t know where you go or where I go
All I know’s I wanna go with you
If I fall to sleep tonight and stay asleep
When you hear a strangers’ call, it’s me, baby

There’s a place where the wild roses grow
I’ll be waiting for you every night

I don’t know where you go or where I go …

 

WHY WONDER WHY

I wonder why
She never tries to hurt me
Please tell me why
She never even tried

Why wonder why the pain comes late at night
Why wonder why the lightning strikes you with all its might

I wonder why
She never needs to know
Where I’ve been
And where I’m gonna go

Why wonder why the sun goes down in the hole
Why wonder why your mind’s not connected to your soul

I never thought that she would stop and wonder why
I never thought that she would scream and start to cry

I wonder why
She never did desert me
My, oh my
I would be terrified

Why wonder why the world is out of control
Why wonder why if you don’t know if she knows …

 

GOD KNOWS

Out in the dark, like a man on the moon
Walking slow motion, circling the dunes
Deep down inside there’s a hole

Up in the sky, sound asleep
On a bed of white clouds, I feel no shame
When I swear in his name, God knows why
When the storm breaks over me

God knows nothing
It’s all in my head
it’s all in my heart

I feel the embrace,
Like barbed wire around my soul
My conscience is my crime
It’s a fence too high to climb

Cause God knows nothing
It’s all in my head
It’s all in my heart

God knows why, I lost my way
God knows why, I never pray
God is asleep, and the sign on the door
Says do not disturb, please fight your own war

God knows nothing
It’s all in my head
It’s all in my heart

 

THE WALK

Tall shadows all around
Nobody of my kind
I walk this path alone
No place to call my home

Last chance to believe in mercy
Last chance to believe in love
I am too blind to see
To choose my destiny

I feel the enemy so close
I’m behind enemy lines

Across the border, with blinded eyes
And now the searchlight’s trailing me

There is no turning back
Oh no, I can’t do that
I guess I’ll never know
What made you let me go

Last dance with the moonlight fairy
She’s dreaming wondrous dreams
Please save a dream for me
Please tell them, let me be

Guide me through the darkest hour
Hide me from the searchlights all around

I feel the enemy so close
I’m behind enemy lines

Across the border, with blinded eyes
And now the searchlight’s trailing me

Hiding underneath the branches of a pine tree
Waiting for that someone, to be calling out my name

Last chance to believe in justice
Last chance to believe in luck
I am too blind to see
To choose my destiny

Across the border, with blinded eyes
And now the searchlight’s trailing me

 

THE WALL

When the night falls the strange shapes
Are playing with your mind
In the dark you can see with your eyes closed
The things you left behind

If there is a reason, there’s still hope
I know you can make it back home

It’s always the cold, it’s always the rain
You better stand tall, your master’s in pain

There’s a hole in the high wall
That runs around this town
And you know, if you find it in time, you
Can break defenses down

The truth’s gonna hurt you, the liar knows
You’re gonna reap what you sow

 

HANGOVER BLUES

Today I was waking up lost at sea so far away from home
Last night I was coming home drunk as if I drank the rivers dry
Baby, I’m sorry
Next time I’ll be going home before the storm breaks, I cross my heart

And now that I’m lost at sea
My head is hanging down
Now that I’m lost, the great sea all around
Chance is I’m gonna drown
And my head is spinning round

Tonight I believe I’m gonna stay inside if I ever reach the coastline
But little by little I forget the night before my escapades
Just maybe, I’m sorry
So next time if I’m coming home drunk at least you know the reason why

And now that I’m lost at sea
My head is hanging down
Now that I’m lost, the great sea all around
Chance is I’m gonna drown

And now that I’m lost at sea
My head is hanging down
Now that I’m lost, the great sea all around
Chance is I’m gonna drown
And my head is spinning
The world is spinning
I am falling down

 

MY FRIENDS

I think my friends are kind of annoying
They’re so full of shit every time that we meet
The way they go on about things in their life
Never ask about me, how do I feel, I’ll tell you loud and clear

All I’m asking, how do I get rid of all my friends, motherfuckers

I think my friends are kind of disgusting
There’s no sense of style in the way that they dress
The way they go «gee, I’m so beautiful», see
Never glancing at me, how do you think it feels, I’ll tell you loud and clear

All I’m asking, how do I get rid of all my friends, motherfuckers

I think my friends are kind of depressing
They never think an original thought
Everything’s a quote from somebody else
So if nothing is real, what’s the fucking deal, I’ll tell you loud and clear

All I’m asking, how do I get rid of all my friends, motherfuckers

I think my friends are kind of offended
But I didn’t say that I’m better than you
I’m really just a fraud, the way I’m playing God
Please, forget about me, I’m your worst fear, now tell me loud and clear

All you’re asking is how do you get rid of me, my friends

 

I WANT IT TO BE YOU

Trying his perfume
Tell me, what can I do
So that I can get immune

Life is nothing without you
Cause without you I can’t find
Life is nothing without you
No piece of mind

I want it to be you
I wanted to be you

Howling at the moon
Lovestruck by his touch
I become, a big baboon

I curse myself each time I cry
I’m casting pearls before swine
I curse myself and wonder why
These tender feelings

I want it to be you
I wanted to be you

Playing all my cards
Tell me, what is true
Am I the keeper or the guard

 

SAVE ME FROM THE RAIN

You’re standing in the shade
Covering your eyes
It’s the countdown of a lifetime
Do we have to say goodbye

I put your hand right where my heart is
I can’t save you from the rain, no

The moon’s above the playground
The toys are in the shed
Your eyes are getting weary
It’s time to go to bed

I’ll put a safe roof over your head
I’ll put a lamp right next to your bed
But I can’t save you from the rain

The things that I’ll remember
Are the things that you’ll forget
I’ll put them in a story
So you’ll find them when I’m dead

They’ll put a red rose on my deathbed
They’ll put a white cross over my head
But they can’t save me from the rain

When you wake up in the morning
You’ll reach out for the sun
The kids are at the playground
Run along and have some fun

I’ll put a safe roof over your head
Got some good beans and a cornbread
But I can’t save you from the rain

Who can save me from the rain, now
Try to save me from the rain

 

LULLABY FOR PRACTICAL GIRLS

When the night falls and I’m all alone
Even if I’m far from home
I’m not afraid of shadows in the dark

Cause when it’s dark, it’s dark as dark can be
And when you’re blind there’s nothing there to see
No creatures crawling through the park

And I know if I can’t see them
They can’t see me

Even if it’s something hiding there
Underneath my bed or down the stairs
I’m not that silly kind of girl

I don’t care if they put up a show
When I sleep, I sleep as sound as no one else
In this whole wide world
