Begin To Hope (Album)

Recommended Posts

1. Fidelity

I never loved nobody fully

Always one foot on the ground

And by protecting my heart truly

I got lost in the sounds

I hear in my mind

All these voices

I hear in my mind

All these words

I hear in my mind

All this music

And it breaks my heart

Suppose I never ever met you

Suppose we never fell in love

Suppose I never ever let you

Kiss me so sweet and so soft

Suppose I never ever saw you

Suppose you never ever called

Suppose I kept on singing love songs

Just to break my own fall

Just to break my fall

All my friends say

That of course it’s

Gonna get better...

2. Better

If I kiss you where it’s sore

If I kiss you where it’s sore

Will you feel better, better, better

Will you feel anything at all

Will you feel better, better, better

Will you feel anything at all

Born like sisters to this world

In a town where blood ties are only blood

If you never say your name out loud to anyone

They can never ever call you by it

If I kiss you where it’s sore

If I kiss you where it’s sore

Will you feel better, better, better

Will you feel anything at all

Will you feel better, better, better

Will you feel anything at all

You’re getting sad, you’re getting sad

You’re getting sad, you’re getting sadder

And I don’t understand and I don’t understand

But if I kiss you where it’s sore

If I kiss you where it’s sore

Will you feel better, better, better

Will you feel anything at all

Will you feel better, better, better

3. Samson

You are my sweetest downfall

I loved you first, I loved you first beneath

The sheets of paper lies my truth

I have to go, I have to go

Your hair was long when we first met

Samson went back to bed

Not much hair left on his head

Ate a slice of Wonder bread and

Went right back to bed

And the history books forgot about us

And the Bible didn’t mention us

Not even once

You are my sweetest downfall

I loved you first, I loved you first beneath

The stars came falling on our hats

But they’re just old light, they’re just old light

Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed

Told me that my hair was red

Told me I was beautiful and

Came into my bed

Oh I cut his hair myself one night

A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light

And he told me that I’d done alright

And kissed me till the morning light, the morning light

And he kissed me till the morning light

Samson went back to bed

Not much hair left on his head

Ate a slice of Wonder bread and

Went right back to bed

Oh we couldn’t bring the columns down

Yeah we couldn’t destroy a single one

And the history books forgot about us

And the Bible didn’t mention us

Not even once

You are my sweetest downfall

I loved you first

4. On The Radio

This is how it works

It feels a little worse

Than when we drove our hearse

Right through that screaming crowd

While laughing up a storm

Until we were just bone

Until it got so warm

That none of us could sleep

Then all the styrofoam

Began to melt away

We tried to find some worms

To aid in the decay

But none of them were home

Inside their catacomb

A million ancient bees

Began to sting our knees

While we were on our knees

Praying that disease

Would leave the ones we love

And never come again

And on the radio

We heard November Rain

The solo’s real long

But it’s a pretty song

We listened to it twice

’Cause the DJ was asleep

This is how it works

You’re young until you’re not

You love until you don’t

You try until you can’t

You laugh until you cry

You cry until you laugh

And everyone must breathe

Until their dying breath

No, this is how it works

You peer inside yourself

You take the things you like

Then try to love the things you took

And then you take that love you made

And stick it into some -

Someone else’s heart

Pumping someone else’s blood

And walking arm in arm

You hope it don’t get harmed

But even if it does

You’ll just do it all again

And on the radio

You’ll hear November Rain

That solo’s awful long

But it’s a good refrain

You’ll listen to it twice

’Cause the DJ is asleep

On the radio uh-oh

On the radio uh-oh

5. Field Below

I wish I’d see a field below

I wish I’d hear a rooster crow

But there are none that live downtown

And so the day starts out so slow

Again the sun was never called

And darkness spreads over the snow

Like ancient bruises

I am awake and feel the ache

But I wish I’d see a field below,

I wish I’d see a field below

I wish I’d see your face below

I wish I’d hear you whisperin’ low

But you don’t live downtown no more

And everything must come and go

Again the sun was never called

And darkness spreads over the snow

Like ancient bruises

I am awake and feel the ache

I am awake and feel the ache

I wish I’d see a field below

I wish I’d see a field below

I am awake and feel the ache

But I wish I’d see a field below

6. Hotel Song

Come in, come in

Come into my world

I've got to show, show, show you

Come into my bed

I've got to know, know, know you

I have dreams of Orca whales and owls

But I wake up in fear

You will never be my - You will never be my fool

Will never be my fool

Floaters in my eyes

Wake up in the hotel room

Cigarettes and lies

I am a child, it's too soon

I have dreams of Orca whales and owls

But I wake up in fear

You will never be my - You will never be my fool

Will never be my fool

A little bag of cocaine

A little bag of cocaine

So who's the girl wearing my dress

I figured out her number

Inside a paper napkin

But I don't know her address

I wait downstairs

The porter smiles to me

A smile I've bought

With a couple of gold coins

A sign that I've been caught

I have dreams of Orca whales and owls

But I wake up in fear

You will never be my - You will never be my dear

Will never be my dear, dear friend

My dear, dear friend

7. Après Moi

I must go on standing

You can't break that which isn't yours

I must go on standing

I'm not my own, it's not my choice

Be afraid of the lame

They'll inherit your legs

Be afraid of the old

They'll inherit your souls

Be afraid of the cold

They'll inherit your blood

Après Moi, le déluge

After me comes the flood

Fevral'. Dostat' chernil i plakat'!

Pisat' o fevrale navzryd,

Poka grohochushaya slyakot'

Vesnoyu chernoyu gorit.

8. 20 Years Of Snow

He's a wounded animal

He lives in a matchbox

He's a wounded animal

And he's been coming around here

He's a dying breed

His daughter is twenty years of snow falling

She is twenty years of strangers looking into each other's eyes

She is twenty years of clean

And she never truly hated anyone or anything

She's a dying breed

She says, I'd prefer the moss

I'd prefer the mouth

A baby of the swamps

A baby of the south

I'm twenty years of clean

I never truly hated anyone or anything

Twenty years of clean

But I've got to get me out of here

This place is full of dirty old men

And the navigators with their mappy maps

And moldy heads and pissin' on sugarcubes

While you stare at your books

And the words float out like holograms

They say, feel the waltz, feel the waltz

Come on, baby, baby, now feel the waltz...

9. That Time

Hey remember that time when I found a human tooth down on Delancey

Hey remember that time when we decided to kiss anywhere except the mouth

Hey remember that time when my favorite colors was pink and green

Hey remember that month when I only ate boxes of tangerines

So cheap and juicy!

Hey remember that time when I would only read Shakespeare

Hey remember that other time when I would only read the backs of cereal boxes

Hey remember that time I tried to save a pigeon with a broken wing

A street cat got him by morning and I had to bury pieces of his body in our building’s playground

I thought I was gonna be sick

Hey remember that time when I would only smoke Parliaments

Hey remember that time when I would only smoke Marlboros

Hey remember that time when I would only smoke Camels

Hey remember that time when I was broke

I didn’t care I'd just bum from my friends

Bum ba bum ba bum bum...

Hey remember that time when you OD’ed

Hey remember that other time when you OD’ed for the second time

Well in the waiting room while waiting for news of you I hallucinated I could read your mind

And I was on a lot of shit too but what I saw, man I tell you it was freaky

Freaky
