Lyrics- songs about love, songs about leaving

Fireflies
I was born a sigh my life
A lonely little lie.
Help me see the paths concealed
Colossal in the lie

At night we watch the fireflies
Courageously we learn to lie

All the leaves the autumn freeze
Are running out of light
Afraid, in awe all
What faith in store
Of promises, come on, come out

May you always be the rising star

Safe for weeks, the prophet speaks
With prophecies no one believes
It’s not your fault, the curtain call
Abandoned on your knees

At night we watch the fireflies
Courageously, we learn to lie

I was born a sigh
My life, a lonely little lie
May you always be the rising star

All aboard, the captain calls
For honor we are here tonight
It’s not your cause, the brave men call
It’s better not to try
Was it only for your charity?
 
Foxhole
I’m on a tightrope
And it’s a long way down
Hand me a tied rope
Something to hold me down

I’m in a foxhole
I pray when no one’s there
Find me a foxhole
My thinking got me here

On me, lay your hands
Castles what profit man

All that’s left to rest
Is laid to waste

If there’s a bottle,
If there’s a sea I’ll drown
We have forgotten
What frightened us was sound

On me, lay your hands
Castles built to stand
All roads led me nowhere,
All roads what profits man?
And maybe I’m already home…
 
That’s What They All Say
I know we’re still fighting
But please don’t give up on me

It’s late and in darkness and I’m writing
And now I see

I know sometimes you get crazy
You feel alone with the thoughts in your head
But don’t you know,
Your wish is the wish I’ve been writing?
There you go, There you go

That’s what they all say
After they love you
They love you
And walk away

I know you’re tired,
I know you’re weary
Of my sad, sad songs with no endings
But for you, for you
I’ll keep on singing
As long as I know you’re still listening

And that’s what they all say
After they love you
They love you and walk away
That’s what they all say
Tell me your secrets,
Buried and walk away
Buried and walk away
Buried and walk away
Buried and walk away

That’s what they all say
Tell me your secrets
That’s what they all say…
 
Stardust
I hear some beauty, I see some light.
I feel it’s my duty on St. Valentine’s
To ask you to take a chance,

With stardust in your eyes

I see it on their faces, again, again.
A thousand contestants who never win,
Who fall at the first chance,

With stardust in your eyes

It’s best when you’re grateful, you might survive
The knife-edge of laughter that splits your side.
I only love what I have lost,

With stardust in your eyes

I’m not falling for you,
I’m not falling for your crown
I’m not falling for you,
I’m just falling down.

If I found a teacher, I might confide,
Blindfold your sister on a firing line
And bang it on your big drum,

With stardust in your eyes

I searched for the exit to start anew,
Driving past the great house, only thinking of you
Your ankles in the soft sand,

With stardust in your eyes

I’m not falling for you,
I’m not falling for your crown
I’m not falling for you,
I’m just falling down

I’m not falling for you,
I’m not falling for your crown
I’m not falling for you,
I’m just falling down
 
Heaven
What’s the matter?
Did you lose a friend?
I could help you
If I was all there.

They just want to
Get on your hobby horse
Things feel better
But they’re not, of course

They don’t love you, it’s true
I want heaven, you’ll do
They want heaven, they want heaven
I gave ‘em hell

What just happened?
Did the lightning pass?
Things look different
Through the looking glass

They just want to
Get on your hobby horse
Things seem different
But they’re not, of course

They don’t love you, it’s true
They don’t love you, I do
They want heaven, they want heaven
I gave ‘em hell
 
Get Here
I fell to earth and she said “hey that’s it”
I throw my hands up, I said “I don’t fit”

Get here, get here
Get here, just get here

We’re all pariahs, we just learn to touch
I’m climbing ladders, I learned not to rush
Get here, get here
Get here, just get here

There’s always been another way
Pirate signs and day light robbery
Yeah, yeah

My friends are liars and we all hold knives
We’re rats in cages, we lead awful lives
Get here, get here
Get here, just get here

There’s always been another way
Don’t listen to a word I say
I’m calling, I just want to stay

I’m tired of fighting, but the peace is worse
There’s slings and arrows
And of course that hurts

Get here, get here
Get here, just get here

There’s always been another way
Puncture holes and day light robbery
Yeah, yeah

I’d be delighted when the soldier sat,
I missed the warmth, the fire’s sure gone flat,

Get here, get here
Get here, just get here
Get here, get here
Get here, just get here

Get here…
 
Vital Signs
I’m the one who’ll take your side
The ebb, the flow when the boat’s in tide
I’ll be here if you call
I’ll find the path from the place you fall
And I promise to be an open book
But it’s hard here, it’s the choice I took

Burn, burn
Down
Burn, burn
Burn

All I know, every sign
And passion walks with a cross sometimes
If you call, I’ll take your side
Hand my note to the folks inside
It’s a promise – if the love dries up
And it binds us when you’ve given up

Burn, burn
Down
Burn, burn
Down

If you come, you’ll find me here
Before the crowd and the cops get here
And it feeds us like it’s blood and wine
And it needs us only half the time
I was calling with no vital signs

Burn, burn
Down
Burn, burn
Burn
 
California Solo
I’m learning to be silent
I’m liking when I’m new
I’m burning, it’s a fire
I’m burning, everyone

Oh, California solo,
Here I come

I’m lonely, it takes time here
I’m lying through my teeth
I’m searching for your picture
I’m hoping we could meet

Oh, meet me out of nowhere
I’m complete

Ooh, no more crying

I’m learning to be quiet
I’m learning to be dumb
And I’m hopeful, it takes time here
I’m liking when we run

Oh, California solo
Here we come

Ooh, no more crying
 
Fallin’ In Fire
When we walk away from coincidence
Why we walk don’t make no sense
We’ve fallen, fallen in the fires again

And you hold me now, can you hold me then?
And the beating in our chests knock us falling but still
We’ve fallen, fallen in the fires again

And you hold me now, can you hold some more?
And the breaking in our chests, swim us from the shore
We’ve fallen, fallen in the fires again

We’ve fallen, fallen in the fires again

And for all we have and for all we won’t
You say you’re gonna leave, you’re gonna leave me but you don’t
Cause you’ve fallen, fallen in the fires again
We’ve fallen, fallen in the fires again
We’ve fallen, fallen in the fires again
 
Take Me Home
There’s a veil,
I can’t find you
I’m too slow,
I’m not inclined to

In a dark room
There was lightning
There were crosses
And wounds
Take me home

I’m a dog, always barking
Once I start, I can’t stop it
August falls when she dances
But she won’t call
That’s how romance is

In a dark room
With the lightning
And the crosses
And wounds
Take me home

Just remember, you are not alone
Take me home

We don’t know, we’re not supposed to
It’s a pantomime, it’s behind you

In a dark room
With the lightning
And the crosses
Wounds
Take me home

Please just tell me all I know’s not wrong
Take me home

You’re a fire, sparks fly off your bones
Take me home
