Lyrics from 'The Nautilus'

One Woman Alone

 

The day begins with a broken heart

And the sun beating on your face

There’s a dream that lingers and haunts your mind

Like a shadow is in your place

And who would care if you just pick up and run

For the sake of running blind

But you wouldn’t do that

Breaking rules just frightens you

 

In the afternoon is a cup of coffee

To brighten the darkening room

But your head still hurts with the lists of things

That you don’t really want to do

And who would care if you smash your coffee cup

And scream and shout out loud

But you wouldn’t do that

No you keep those things inside

 

But now they’re starting to burn you

You’re starting to see

The strength you seek is barely out of reach

 

Chorus:

And here you stand One Woman Alone

Facing down her fears

There’s only two ways

You either drown or you are brave

And you choose

To hold your head high

 

The night is fading to day as you sit

And stare at time going by

All your ghosts have come and gone and now

It’s just you and the morning sky

And who’s gonna stop you if you say

“This is who I am

And I can’t be something else”

What would you do if you could say it all out loud

 

You could be the strong one

Who truly believes

The strength you seek is never out of reach

 

Chorus

 

 

Honey River

 

I fell in love with an island and a man

With the sun soaked days where nothing is easy

I fell in love with the smell of guayaba

The taste of rum on my tongue

And the knots in my hair

 

Chorus:

Vive conmigo este día

Vive conmigo este amor

Todo pasará y todo cambiará

Pero tú y yo tenemos el momento

 

I lost myself on Calle San Miguel

Where I danced ‘til dawn in a broken shoe

 

Chorus

 

I fell in love with a son of Oshun

And we made love in the Honey River

 

Dame este momento dame 

 

 

 

Waiting

 

The weight has grown

Too much to bare

I am here

And you are there

We send our words

Along the line

We make our love inside

 

And I am waiting for the dawn

Dreaming of another song

Waiting for an answer to something I don't know

If only I could let it go

 

You let me down

You made me fall

Standing by

You've seen it all

And now I ask

What should I do

Is it time to forgive you

 

And I am waiting for the dawn

Dreaming of another song

Waiting for an answer to something I don't know

If only I could let it go

 

 

1,000 Fires

 

When a thousand fires have burned

When all the lessons have been learned

When we’ve touched the flames and burned all our fingers

I will meet you there

 

I think you know the place I mean

No on else had ever seen

How the light came in and broke our hearts open

I will meet you there

 

Chorus: I can’t say you’ll always be the one

That we’ll always feel the sun-light on our faces

But I can breathe into this open sea

When all is lost here we will be

Happy forever in my mind

 

When a thousand tiny scars

Take the place of who we are

When we’ve fought the wars of more than a lifetime

I will meet you there

 

I have reached into the black

Grabbed your hand and pulled you back

And though I’ve paid the cost in thousands of heartbeats

I will meet you there

 

Chorus

 

 

North & South

 

Saturday’s the perfect day

For going home you say

I’m watching as the city

In the rearview mirror fades away

And I’m watching you inside my head

The love we made the things you said

That weren’t so true

 

I will miss the way you kiss

The way you smile and nothing else

But that’s a lie I don’t know why

Despite it all I want you still

Someone told me once before

That life is really nothing more

Than what you choose

And now we choose

 

Chorus:

I’m going North

You’re going South

And we got lost

In the middle somehow

 

Somewhere far away from here

I wonder could we find a way

I’m hanging on your love’s a drug

That’s killin’ me a little more each day

We saw the oceans and the stars

We built the castles in our hearts

And made them crumble

And now they crumble

 

Chorus

 

 

 

Mi Soledad

 

Si yo fuera un ángel que pudiera volar

Volaría a tu ventana y te daría

El mundo entero con mi humilde canción

Si yo fuera el espacio que existe entre tú y yo

Me escondería en el silencio y te daría

El regalo del pasado olvidar

 

Mi soledad no es igual

Ahora que no la comparto contigo

Caminando por estas calles

Todo aquí me grita a tí, a tí

Y me dicen vive, vive tu vida

Déjalo ir, que el sol va a salir

Y con tiempo verás que todo estará bien

Y todo está bien

 

Sólo faltas tú 4x

 

Y me dicen olvida, olvídalo ya

Y disfruta vivir que tú joven estás

Y mereces lo mejor, todo estará bien

Y yo estoy bien

 

Sólo faltas tú 4x

 

 

Forevermore

 

There’s nothing I wouldn’t give

To be your queen again

There’s nothing I wouldn’t live

By your side

There’s nothing I wanna say

That hasn’t been said before

But I need to say it anyway

 

I never did really know

Quite how to love you

We never could leave the show

On the stage

You never quite understood

The power your words had

But that’s the way it goes

 

And I wish you sunny days

To fill your heart with grace

And you know you will be on my mind

Forevermore

 

It could have been anyone

On the plane that rainy day

We could have just had our fun

And walked away

Or we could have taken leaps

With no regard for disasters

But this is how it was

 

Now it’s black and white it seems

But if there’s somewhere in between

That’s the place where I will be

Forevermore

 

There’s nothing I wouldn’t give

To feel your heart again

There’s nothing I would live

With you now

But there’s nothing much more to say

When you’re talking to no one

So this is all for today

 

And I wish you sunny days

To fill your heart with grace

And you know you will be on my mind

Forevermore

 

And I wish you down the road

More love than you can hold

So the world will see your shining soul

Forevermore

 

When a heart is hanging on

It can only hold so long

So I’ll be waiting till that day

Forevermore

 

 

 

Games

 

There's something else I need to say I never did cause I was too afraid of who you became when your eyes got dark and your voice changed

That was a man I'd rather not know

If only you could see how you hurt me maybe then you'd change your ways we'd live in a daze of love and passion like we did back then

But then again maybe that's just addiction talking

You remember how it was

The place the time it was all right 

We had a lucid dream livin in the hot nights 

In a sea of sweat and moonlight

I was your queen

You gave me the crown

But there was something about it that was pulling me down

You'd lose your cool we loved to fight and make up

You don't apologize and turn around and wake up

Don't worry its all good, todo en talla papi. 

Smoke another joint, forget about it 

In the moment right here nothing's really wrong 

As long as we don't ever talk about it

 

Chorus: I know, I know I know you babe

Nothin’ new to see

And I know, I know, I know your games

But they got the best of me it seems

 

We have an argument but nothing ever makes sense

You loop it all around and turn it back to me again

Just like a little chess game of blame

I could never gain, it always ends the same 

But don't try so hard you'd say if you were sitting here listening to me today

Well that's some good advice

But you fucked it up so many times I don't know what's true

And I can't trust you

You said I need to grow up I never really show up I'm running away and leaving everyone behind

Pero oye mi negro I see through your lies 

You start all the fights

With no reason why

I'm always wrong 

and you're always right

talking about yourself 

After all this time

I've been learning to 

read between the lines

 

Chorus: I know, I know I know you babe

Nothin’ new to see

And I know, I know, I know your games

But they got the best of me it seems

 

Chorus 2: I know your games

I know your games

I know your games

And I’m done playin

 

 

 

 

 

Who’s There?

 

Don't want your dreams in my head

Don't want your ghost in my bed

Don't want your love in my heart anymore

Don't want your words in my mouth

Don't want your pictures in my house

Don't want your love in my heart anymore

 

Don't wanna know that you lied

Don't wanna sit and wonder why

Don't want your trouble in my life anymore

Don't wanna try to be your friend

Don't wanna try, try again

Don't want your trouble in my life anymore

 

Chorus:

You said we tried

And it was time to say goodbye

And so you flew

Now I'm wondering who I'm

Still here talking to

 

Don't want you giving your advice

On what is wrong and what is right

Don't want your voice in my head anymore

Don't want you singing on the verse

Don't want you helping with the words

Don't want your voice in my head anymore

 

Don't wanna see in your eyes

That other man you have inside

Don't want your pain in my life anymore

Don't wanna think about the times

You nearly crossed all the lines

Don't want your pain in my life anymore

 

Chorus

 

You can take my heart

You can take my pride 

You take respect and twist it up inside

You can take it all

Then leave me too

But in the end 

It's only me

There is no you

But in the end 

It's only me

There is no you

But in the end 

It's only me It's only me It's only me

 

Chorus 2: It’s only me, it’s only me there is no you (repeated)

 

Don't want your dreams in my head

Don't want your ghost in my bed

Don't want your words in my mouth

Don't want your pictures in my house

Don't want your perfume all around

Don't wanna see you downtown

Don't want you watching from afar

Don't wanna know where you are

Don't want your love in my heart anymore

Don't want your love in my heart anymore

Don't want your love in my heart anymore

 

 

 

When You Were Mine

 

Flowers everywhere, love is in the air

Talking cards and chocolate roses to show her that you care

Buy her pretty things, shiny silver rings

Plastic hearts and colored candy

And lacy underwear, but there’s nothing really there

 

It seems so strange now I have changed now

And yet

 

Chorus:

It takes me back in time

To somewhere I once knew

When you were mine

 

Fighting in the car driving to the bar

Shooting daggers with his silence, what’s one more little scar

Crying on the phone, feeling so alone

Till you finally kiss and make up

And then he gets a star

And you’re back to where you are

 

It seems so strange now I have changed now

And yet

 

Chorus

 

 

 

Witness

  

When the sun goes down tonight

And we're bathing in moonlight

When you feel him all around

Just gotta hold hold hold hold your ground

 

When the fire is burning bright

We throw our memories to the hot light

When there's nothing left to do

Just gotta hold hold hold hold onto (3x)

 

Chorus:

What we can

And I'll hold you

And I'll hold you

And I will be your witness

Oh won't you be my witness too

 

When the anger's all over you

And you're seething in a hot stew

When there's nowhere left to turn

Just gotta watch watch watch watch it burn

 

When you wanna be moving on

But you've been stuck here for so long

When you're buried down in your soul

Just gotta let go let go let go (3x)

 

Chorus

 

Yes I will be your witness

If you will be my witness

Yeah we all just want a witness

Dont we all just want a witness

 

 

 

 

Lay Your Head Down

 

Chorus:

Lay your head down lay your head

You’ve been struggling since the sail was set

Those voices wailing to climb aboard

You don’t have to give in no more

 

Lay your suffering at your feet

You’ve been wearing the world upon your cheeks

Those tears may haunt you your whole life long

But you have your sacred song

 

Chorus

 

Let your eyes rest long and sweet

They’ve been searching for everything unseen

But all the trying in the world

Won’t make sense of us boys and girls

 

Chorus

 

There’s a sun that’s yet to rise

You will greet him when the time is right

But tomorrow’s a long, long way

Won’t you rest your head today

 

Chorus

 

 

Two Souls

 

He never sets his pen to page

for fear of imperfection.

“You’re not enough,” the voices say.

But he knows that’s not true.

His knees are stiff and bouncing

with his hands upon his hips -

so scared.

I saw that once before

as he stared

down at his grandmother’s corpse.

And now across from me in the downtown street

the knees begin

and I know this is goodbye.

“We all just want a witness,”

he said to me last night.

Well, here I stand, your witness till the end.

“It’s all your fault,” the voices cry

But no, it wasn’t me this time

I wanted it to be,

so that I could fix it.

But I couldn’t fix it.

On the night of the full moon, the eclipse and the comet

I saw the love in his eyes

and it was real.

As real as anything can be in a world

where two souls collide

and make a painting with each day,

to be built and worn away.

Sometimes I’m afraid

to set my pen to page

for once I have begun it’s just the start

of another ending.

But still–

We love.

We love.

We love.
