Matchbook Romance – Playing for Keeps

This song is great. Take a listen and let me know if you prefer the acoustic or the regular version better.

<3<3<3




Acoustic:

LYRICS:

Its so simple and complicated
The way you can crush me
No matter how much this hurts
This is through
I get as far as your door before I get caught
I make up excuses just to touch you
And I can't stop, I can't stop

So are we playing for keeps
These days begin and they don't end for weeks
Leave me left out of anything to do with you
Excuse me while I fall apart
Don't flatter yourself sweetheart
Let me take the wheel and I'll crash this car
Do you have to make this so hard

Your so good at pretending everything is alright
Your as welcome as cancer but my door is always unlocked

So are we playing for keeps
These days begin and they don't end for weeks
Leave me left out of anything to do with you
Excuse me while I fall apart
Don't flatter yourself sweetheart
Let me take the wheel and I'll crash this car
Do you have to make this so hard

Your so good (x4)

Dub FX - Made

This is just awesome. So talented. Such an inspiration. Hard to think when you hear the final product, that it was made using only vocals. What are your thoughts???

<3<3<3



LYRICS:

I’ve got my eyes open wide to the ceiling
I’m lying on my back in the centre of a room
I’ve got a voice giving me a funny feeling
Its telling me the world’s going to end real soon
I’ve got to get a job otherwise I’m unappealing
Do my little dance for the man and consume
So i let my energy build for the healing
So i can reign down with my super sonic boom
I’m held down by a fog on my way to the top
All clouded and the pressure won’t rise
I’m on a mission to the sky with the stars in my eyes
Yet the weather won’t compromise
Like a ball on a chain that is strapped to my brain
I’m a prisoner inside of my dreams
So i will appreciate the future of a day
Where the clouds open up and scream
And i sing now

I aint gonna spend my time wandering why i never made it
I’ve already made it
I aint gonna spend my days thinking about why i never made it

Like the pages of a novel at the bottom of a shelf
I grow stiff yet i keep my pride
Like the one raindrop in the centre of a rose
I’m in heaven with a world outside
Like another metaphor to describe my vibe
I’m just a vessel for my conscious needs
So i will appreciate the future of a day
Where the clouds open up and scream
And i sing now

I aint gonna spend my time…

Its times like this i need to lose my inhibitions
Raise my fist and forget about decisions
Help assist in the party that im giving
Take on the vibe and soon you will be singing
That its times like this ya need to lose your inhibitions
Just raise your fist and forget about decisions
I’ll help assist in that party that we’re giving
Take on the vibe and soon ya will be singing
I aint gonna spend my time wandering why, i never made it
I’ve already made it.

LYRICS:

This is the third time and the last time ill be the other woman

Its the first time and a good time to see changes coming
you led me down this road, theres no way i could've known

Hey James, go on and leave me alone
Hey James, you never said you had another girl at home
so leave me alone, and get on home

you were a looker, and your sweet, yeah, you got me
But you lied and you tricked me into falling
you led me down this road, theres no way i could've known

Hey James, go on and leave me alone
Hey James, you never said you had another girl at home
so leave me alone, and get on home

Hey James....
Hey James....you never said you had another girl. at home
So leave me alone and get on home
SO leave me...leave me alone...hooooo...and get on home

Umbrellas - Ships

Sammy Sharon (drums)
Nick Hughes (keys)
Sethy McCarroll (bass)
Geordan Taylor (bass)

Discography:
Umbrellas (2005)

Beach Front Property [EP] (2007)



LYRICS:

Just like ships, we float through each other's lives
Through the waters of beauty and grace
We will one day dock at the same port
And give rest to our weary legs
There is a light placed up in the sky
Like the stained glass, time slows down
I wish I could sleep, I wish I could dream
I love the sound of my feet against these empty streets
I saw the whole town burn down
I'm walking away
Nothing stays, these feelings have wings
Our arms outstretched, we are soaring
