Lyrics:

My first girlfriend was a lesbian

My first girlfriend was a lesbian
she was beautiful and sweet
she had eyes as big as heaven
and her nails were never pink

My first girlfriend was a tomboy
she wore less make up than I did
but she knew what to do in bed
while I didn’t have a clue

My first girlfriend was a fighter
looking over the clouds and scratching the sky
for something she could call home
and I was there, sending her postcards from the cracks of my heart

‘Cause she was a door into a place where I had never been before
and she said you’re my love
just come in
my first girlfriend was a lesbian
it was long long time ago

My first girlfriend had a safe place
for every piece of my broken soul
she taught me more than I could learn
about a life I didn’t know

My first girlfriend was an earthquake
in the middle of a flood
she was wilder than a whisper
and just like a whisper she got stuck in my head

And so early one morning I went down the road
with a young fever I couldn’t control
and I wrote her name on every town wall
‘cause that was the name of the only real love song to me

‘Cause she was a door into a place where I had never been before
and she said you’re my love
just come in
my first girlfriend was a lesbian
it was long long time ago

High

You get me high
and I won’t let you drop me
‘cause every time I’m stuck in black days
you come holding a white candle

You set the pace
and I can only follow you
'cause every time you hit that high note
these four walls they seem like wild trees
'cause you just get me high
and I don’t even feel you coming inside

I’m saying I don’t wanna feel like a bomb ticking ticking for life
I’m saying I don’t have a mission
and I don’t have a mission
and I don’t want a mission
I’m saying I don’t wanna feel like a bomb ticking ticking for life
I’m saying I don’t have a mission
and I don’t have a mission
and I don’t want a mission

You fly me high
and I won’t let you drop me
'cause every time I’m trying to swim away from all my troubles
you come round and take me ashore
'cause you just get me high
and I don’t even feel you coming inside

I’m saying I don’t wanna feel like a bomb ticking ticking for life
I’m saying I don’t have a mission
and I don’t have a mission
and I don’t want a mission
I’m saying I don’t wanna feel like a bomb ticking ticking for life
I’m saying I don’t have a mission
and I don’t have a mission
and I don’t want a mission

You slip inside
and I, I’ve got a song for you
cause no one can see when you flow through my centre
and tremble and dance till the night of my senses
cause you, you just get me high
and I don’t even feel you coming inside

I’m saying I don’t wanna feel like a bomb ticking ticking for life
I’m saying I don’t have a mission
and I don’t have a mission
and I don’t want a mission
I’m saying I don’t wanna feel like a bomb ticking ticking for life
I’m saying I don’t have a mission
and I don’t have a mission
and I don’t want a mission

Hungry & shy

Desire
is true life
it’s a road that’s only lit
by the moonlight

No mercy
need to exorcise
hear me knockin’ on your door
hungry and shy

Let me see your face and paint your skin
show me how to use my hands
we can let the dance begin

‘Cause there’s no time
better than tonight
all those bright lights
they are in your eyes
but you don’t wanna get me out
out of your wary head
and I can’t put my feet back on the ground
‘cause I miss you so much
need you more than myself

Let me see your face and paint your lips
show me how to use my hands
we can let the dance begin

‘Cause there’s no time
better than tonight
all those wild lines
they are in your mind
so why don’t you just let me out
out of your wary head
‘cause I can’t put my feet back on the ground
girl I miss you so much
need you more than myself

Come on let me out

Baby this is the end

Our demons crossing horns
poisoning the sun
broken flowers around our bed
our prayers on the run
feeling our brains
shivering down our spines
locked inside a memory
or was it just a dream?
well we don't need to worry anymore
‘cause baby we’re going down

It was nice to see you come
as it is to say adios
I’ll miss you
but please don’t come back
‘cause I need no more sleep
time to rub my eyes
I got lost inside a dream
oh baby ‘cause it was just fine
to hide in your arms
but we don’t need a victim’s lullaby
‘cause baby this is the end

Perfect lizard perfect sun

On the road
I’m on fire yeah
to the shore
I’m on fire yeah
grab the wheel
let me scream
cause I feel so alive I feel like cracking up
fire, fire, fire
fire, fire, fire

Cause today I’m the perfect lizard in the perfect sun
could you believe it?
gotta believe
no excuse
I cannot lose
my dream

So I’ve recently been listening to some voices in my head
and they all seem to agree that I’m on fire
I’m on fire yeah
I am sure
I’m on fire yeah
grab the wheel
let me scream
cause I feel so alive I feel like cracking up
fire, fire, fire
fire, fire, fire

Cause today I’m the perfect lizard in the perfect sun
could you believe it?
gotta believe
no excuse
I cannot lose
my dream
no excuse
I cannot lose
my dream
no excuse
I cannot lose
my dream

Ixhel

I woke up last night with her words in my ears
her eyes were like holes through the moon
I said I don't believe you
but that’s just me hiding
it’s alright

She said you’re in the future yes that’s where you live
and the sky that I see, you have seen it before
and if I hurry
you’ll be my tomorrow
it’s alright

And so tonight I’ll be swimming
till I get to your side of the pond
I’ve got to get there
'cause I wanna see who has been setting fire to my thoughts
And so tonight I’ll be swimming
till I get to your side of the pond
I’ve got to get there
'cause I wanna see who has been setting fire to my thoughts

She said come into my life let me show you around
I’ve got fruits you’ve never seen before and sweet equations for the way I feel for ya (Ixhel)
I just want you to look

She said you’re melting my soul, making my rules fall
I can be a bag of sweets with all the shapes and flavours you might ever crave for (Ixhel)
I just want you to choose

And so tonight I’ll be swimming
till I get to your side of the pond
I’ve got to get there
'cause I wanna see who has been setting fire to my thoughts
And so tonight I’ll be swimming
till I get to your side of the pond
I’ve got to get there
'cause I wanna see who has been setting fire to my thoughts

Voltati

Chiudi la porta
Mi dici no ma è un si
Tu la mia rosa, io la tua spina, noi complici
Guardami, credimi, sorridi ma non sai
Lacrime, due o tre, le verserò per te
Adesso voltati, seguimi, te lo ricordi questo gioco?

Vuoi degli ordini?
Allora dimmi si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Vuoi degli ordini?
Allora dimmi si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si

Spiagge di sale
Unica terapia
Sulla tua pelle un po’ di limone e nostalgia
Guardami, ascoltami, sorridi perché sai
Che con me, no non c’è più niente a cui pensare
Adesso voltati, fidati, te lo ricordi questo gioco?

Vuoi degli ordini?
Allora dimmi si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Vuoi degli ordini?
Allora dimmi si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si
Solo si

White Domino

Walked in with 9s
in cool summer haze
went in a daze and was wondering who
was she a stone
was she a rose
was she the one they called White Domino

But she, she’s just a girl
trying to remember how love really tasted
but love was never around
and I couldn’t tell if she was riding or falling

‘Cause she, she’s just a girl
trying to remember how love really tasted
and I, I didn’t know
I was just staring at the sun all day long
in my arms (away from you)

Went as she came
through the last light of day
smiled and I knew she would always fell lonely
bright flush of cheeks
and I thought of the thorns
yes she was the one they called White Domino

But she, she’s just a girl
trying to remember how love really tasted
but love was never around
and I couldn’t tell if she was riding or falling

‘Cause she, she’s just a girl
trying to remember how love really tasted
and I, I didn’t know
I was just staring at the sun all day long
in my arms

Phoenixes

Another night of misery
another tear has fallen down
but we can learn together, we can run forever
hell or heaven I’ll follow you
Another night of misery
another tear has fallen down
but we will stick together, we will learn forever
I won’t lose my faith in you

(Dammi la mano, io sono qui)

Summer rain

The rain is falling
no one’s around
I get tired after days of talking to myself
it’s so ironic
this life
we don’t even know how much we’ve got left to live
and I’m probably hurt
more than I can feel
but I know it’s gonna be just fine
trying to walk the line
without you

‘Cause all your light isn’t gonna fade with you
and all your love isn’t gonna die with you
I know you’ll be around
when no one is around
in the summer rain

She just called me
she speaks real fine
was it something about what she thinks I really need?
but I just need some time
or a friend
but even friends they cannot disappear with me
and I smell the air and fly
far away from here
where I know I’m gonna do just fine
trying to walk the line
without you

‘Cause all your light isn’t gonna fade with you
and all your love isn’t gonna die with you
I know you’ll be around
when no one is around
in the summer rain
summer rain

‘Cause all your love
all your joy
no, they won’t fade away
and all you words
all your tears
no, they won’t fade away
and all your love
all your joy
no, they won’t fade away
and all you words
all your tears
no, they won’t fade away
all your light
all your light

Loaded gun

I thought we could go for the big piece of cake
but all that sugar just made us feel bitter
I know
my love comes with a loaded gun
We looked at the clouds and they didn’t seem deep
so I took your hand and we swam in the sky
but we drowned
my love comes with a loaded gun
So I thought to myself, I would kiss you for longer
but you just couldn’t breathe with the fear in your chest
it was my fault
my love comes with a loaded gun
And we talked about Christ and we talked about Jesus
and the love of his mother seemed nothing compared
was I wrong?
my love comes with a loaded gun

My love comes with a loaded gun
you can afford to feel safe and keep playing
until it goes off
My love comes with an ending song
and every piece of my heart told me you were the one
was I wrong?

And there was no way in, but deceiving myself
‘cause the more I rationalised the less it made sense
so whose fault was it then?
my love comes with a loaded gun babe
So I made you sleep and you had a bad dream
and it kept me awake for so many black nights
so I thought, once again
that my love, that my love comes with a loaded gun yeah

My love comes with a loaded gun
you can afford to feel safe and keep playing
until it goes off
My love comes with an ending song
and every piece of my heart told me you were the one
was I wrong?

Love
can be a game of chance
and I can feel that it makes me wanna play
just another game
so I roll, I roll the dice
and just wait for it to spin
and I know I’m the only one to blame
‘cause I’m the one who tastes the honey, honey oh babe

My love comes with a loaded gun
you can afford to feel safe and keep playing
until it goes off
My love comes with an ending song
and every piece of my heart told me you were the one
was I wrong?
My love comes with an ending song
so you should sing it out loud ‘cause the last chorus is already on
