Split    Lyrics



Light From a Dead Star
(Berenyi)
He lives his life in a world full of women
And he takes what he wants
from their love
And he throws the rest away

I cling to him and pray
But still he slips away
And now it's just too late
To wish him back again

She won't put up with this life
so she leaves him
And she finds someone else,
falls in love
And she travels far away

I say that it's ok
And swallow all my pain
And now it's just too late
To wish her back again

They left me here on my own
in a nightmare
And I just can't forgive anymore
So I smile and turn away

Don't listen when they say
They wish I could stay
And now it's just too late
To wish me back again


Kiss Chase
(Berenyi)
Tiny children on their own, they learn so fast
How to make new friends, how to play their new games

I remember a man he had shiny hair
Always hanging around when you went away

Little eight year old, she knows too many secrets
Much too young to understand what it means

I remember a woman with silver hair
And the smell and the taste of the bed we shared

And that's how I behaved
Every time that you went away
And now, though I'm older nothing's changed
(playing the same games)

And I knew every day
Came a chance that you'd leave me
So I found what I could to take your place

Told me not to cry
Said that I'd survive
As he waved goodbye

And I want to try
Not to make you cry
Want us to survive
Never say goodbye

But that's how I behave when you go away
Because though I'm older nothing's changed
(playing the same games)

And I know every day
There's a chance that you'll leave me
So I find what I can to take your place


Blackout
(Anderson)
I'm not interested in what you have to say
You're just a vacant space
Other people's lives upon which you prey
It's a permanent disgrace

Why do you think you know what's best for me
What I should and shouldn't do
Why do you judge my history
And tell me to improve

In the confines of your mind
You think we're all the same
I've left them all behind
Though you wish I hadn't

In finding fault in others I can't see
What you have to gain
I know that you get pleasure from
Other people's pain

You're not so perfect and I realise the scene
That you're all coming from
When you say you care I know what you mean
You're really lying

All the people around here
Love to hear about a fall
They all surface and disappear
In an instant

In the confines of your mind
You think we're all the same
I've left them all behind
Through you wish I hadn't


Hypocrite
(Berenyi)
A silly girl I run around and never know my reasons
And though you're laughing with me I know what you say about me

I can't explain, it's not your business anyway
So don't say you understand
And don't pretend you're on my side

And I remember when you hated her for sleeping next to him
I see your smiling face but I know you've done worse to me

You hypocrite,
don't talk to me
'Cause you're not fit to know me
So don't pretend
That you could've ever been a friend

And still I'm sure you think it's ok
What you've done to me
'Cause I'm so bad to him
Don't even try to hide behind that stupid lie
I know your kind and I know where your loyalties lie

The silly girls we run around and never know our reasons
And though I understand I guess I'll say that you betrayed me

I'm a hypocrite,
I dish it out but I can't take it
I know you think it's wrong
And maybe you're right but this is my song

And still I'm sure you think it's ok
What she did to me
'cause I'm so bad to him
Don't even try to hide behind that stupid smile
I know our kind and I know where our loyalties lie


Lovelife
(Anderson)
You are the one
In your concrete arms I adore you
Dirty and dear
Block out the sun
In your twists and turns I invade
You show me no fear

We blow around like tiny leaves in a big storm
Finding there's nothing left to breathe or to keep warm 
You ebb and flow and your rhythm beats my head
Leave me alone while you swallow up your dead

You are the one
You cradle me and kill
Caressing my face

Leave me undone
You suffocate and have me
This is the place

Every door conceals a dream and a nightmare
Nothing is ever really pure in the stale air

And when it's dark everything becomes more clear
Lie in the park when I want to have you near

You are the one
In your concrete arms I adore you
Dusty and dear
Block out the sun
In your twists and turns I invade
You show me no fear

Left it unsung
I shall leave but I'll return
Poison my lungs, my blood is full of lead
Things unsaid
My love for you still burns


Desire Lines
(Anderson)
It's raining in this room
And it's so hot outside this room

I don't know no one here
I don't want to be here
In this room

We hold parties in our sleep
We fill ourselves up in our sleep

And I'll heal you when you're ill
Though it's hard keeping still
In our sleep

Pries the hair out of her mouth
Whilst the circus is heading south

While we search in the sand
Don't ask them to understand
Why they cover up their hands
And their mouths


The Invisible Man
(Anderson)
Oooh

Outside you are waiting for me, hiding

You catch me when I am
Needing a friend to hold

You can soothe me, lie above me
Press hard

Then you strike
And I think that I'll die
'Cause I can't breathe, can't breathe

Please let me start screaming
Please let me start screaming
Please let me start screaming
Please let me start screaming

Oooh

Please let me start screaming
Eyes are open seeing nothing
Hands are tied and I can't function

Please let me start screaming
Please let me start screaming
Please let me start screaming
Please let me start screaming
Please let me start screaming


Undertow
(Berenyi)
So you want to be alone
Run and hide inside your home

Watch you fall away from me
Sinking into misery

Taste your smile and hold my hand
Make you laugh and make you dance

I remember this
Everything was in our kiss

Sink my hands into the sea
Reach your fingers up to me

Trust me one more time
I can only try

Throw yourself to me
And I'll try to pull you free

Let me try to pull you free
Let me try to pull you free...


Never-Never
(Anderson)
Only children sometimes comprehend
Loneliness can often be a friend

Have to shut yourself in
Don't know how to begin
Telling it to someone
Who doesn't fit in

I am sunken in biology
I cannot control that part of me

I don't want to hurt you
But I know I will do
Maybe we could find out
What are we to do

I don't have long fingernails to use
Would we care if we were black and blue?

We're both sick but still you hold my hand
We're together but I understand

Walk along the seaside
This is not a joyride
Tell me in the meantime
It's ok


Lit Up
(Anderson)
You feel like I do
Like the whole world's forgotten you

And your life is so dull and predictable

Your room seems like a cell
And you don't sleep very well

And your friends only talk to point and to mock
And to ridicule

One day things won't seem the same way, I know

Morning in the mirror
Things will suddenly seem much clearer I promise, it's alright

His words don't flatter me
And they're printed for all to see

I don't care, he's not there
It's all history

The future's yours to hold
And you're really not very old

And your life is so white, so clean and so bright
And holds mystery

Morning in the mirror
Things will suddenly seem much clearer I promise it's alright

One day things won't seem the same way, I know

One day things won't seem the same way, I know

One day things won't seem the same way, I know


Starlust
(Anderson/Berenyi)
Walking at midnight
In the darkness, alone
Standing in the shadows
And I'm watching your glow

Standing in the red light
And I'm smiling at you
Dreaming of the starlight
Just waiting for you

I'll do anything to
Make you mine, make me shine
Take me if you want me
I don't care, I don't mind

I want your starlight
Make it mine, make me shine
Touch me with your light
And I'll burn like a star


When I Die
(Anderson)
If you walked in now
I wouldn't start I wouldn't frown
And if you just appeared
I woudn't cry or think it weird

'Cause you are still around
You're in the air, you're in the ground
And you can't go away
I am afraid you're here to stay

Friends don't understand
They close the door, they raise their hands

She says she heard your voice
Of course she does, she has no choice

I was hours ahead
When they removed you from your bed

They drank all the while
Until you said goodbye

Why are we sitting here in ourselves?
Why are we sitting here in ourselves?
Why are we sitting here in ourselves?

I don't look up, I don't look down
I look ahead and make no sound
My love was there,
I only stare

Healty in my dreams
Is what you are, is what is seems

What does it all mean?
You're only hiding behind a screen

Curse the English day
For what it forces us to say
Banish all the pain

'Cause when I die, die
I'll see you again.
