Seventeen 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 shouldíve jumped out
Of that airplane after all
Flying skyways overhead
It wasnít hard to fall

And I had so many crashes
That I couldn't feel
At all...

And it feels like
Iím 17 Again
Feels like Iím 17

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 youíd done everything
You didnít have a clue

And it feels like
Iím 17 Again
Feels like Iím 17
Again

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
Iím 17 Again
Feels like Iím 17
Again

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
Thatís been left there ticking there too long
Youíre 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
Everybodyís happy now
The bad things gone away
And everybodyís happy now
The good thingís here to stay
Please let it stay

Thereís a million mouths to feed
And Iíve got everything i need
Iím breathing
And thereís a hurting thing inside
But Iíve got everything to hide
I'm grieving

Hey hey I saved the world today
Everybodyís happy now
The bad things gone away
And everybodyís happy now
The good thingís here to stay
Please let it stay

Doo doo doo doo doo the good thing

Hey hey I saved the world today
Everybodyís happy now
The bad things gone away
And everybodyís happy now
The good thingís here to stay
Please let it stay

Everybody's happy now


Power To The Meek

I'm just a girl
With my head screwed on
I'm just a girl
With a smoking gun

I got my fingers stung
My fingers stung yeah
I'm just a girl
With my fingers stung

Bless these bones
Bless this skin
All of me
And the mess I'm in

Yea the mess I'm in
But I don't care
Don't know where I've been
But I'll get me there

I'm alive
Yea and it's alright
I'm alive
Yea and it's alright

Power to the meek
Power to speak
I got the power
Within me
Yea Yea

Power to the shine
In my worn out shoes
Power to me
Power to you

Bless this head
Bless this hair
Bless me to the dirt
In my fingernails yea

Bless this day
Bless this night
Give me something good
Make me feel alright

I'm alive
Yea and it's alright
I'm alive
Yea and it's alright

I'm alive
Yea and it's alright
I'm alive
Yea and it's alright
It's alright

Power to the meek
Power to speak
I got the power
Within me
Power to the shine
In my worn out shoes
Yea
Power to me
Power to you


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?
Itís 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 donít think I can make it fit
And who would guess it would come to this
When Iíve tried everything

And I should know but I canít explain
The endless noise sounding in my brain
Who wouldíve thought that you could feel such pain
When youíve tried everything

Yea.. youíre a loser now
Yea.. youíre a loser now

I should be cool
But Iím burning hot
I should be good
But I fell apart
Donít look at me now donít even start
Cause Iíve tried everything

Yea.. Youíre a loser now
Yea.. Youíre a loser now


I Want It All

I want it all
I want it all
I donít know what it is
But I want it all

I want it all
I want it all
I donít know what it is
But I want it all

And I want it now
I want it now
I donít know what it is
But I want it now

Yea yea yea
Yea yea yea

Gimme gimme some more
Of the same old stuff
It donít make me happy
And itís never enough

Gimme gimme some more
Of the same old stuff
It donít make me happy
And itís 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
Yea yea yea


My True Love

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

My true love has found himself alone
And heís sorry for it all
And for the hurt weíve done

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

And I donít want to remember
And I donít 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 donít want to remember
And I donít want to remember


Forever

Forever
Now that youíre gone
Gone forever
But the day goes on
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 tomorrowís yet to come
Youíll never know

Forever
Now that youíre 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 tomorrowís yet to come
You live and learn

Some people never take the time to try
The way you liveís the way you die
The stuff of lifeís 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

Forever
Now that youíre gone
Gone forever
But the day goes on
Forever
Yea yea yea
Forever


Lifted

Donít 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 youíre drowned in despair
Keep on lifted
keep on lifted

Youíre 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
