GLUE

TEMPORARILY HAPPY C.S / J.L
YOU CAN KILL EACHOTHER / YOU CAN SHOOT AND SHOOT
BUT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR MOTHER / WHILE YOU’RE CLEANING YOUR BOOTS
YOU CAN FELL EVERY TREE / YOU CAN CUT & CUT
A DESTRUCTION OF ME IS WORTHLESS BUT
YOU CAN ACT VERY COOL / IGNORE & IGNORE
BUT DO YOU KNOW WHO THE FOOLS ARE / NO YOU’RE NEVER SURE
YOU FOLLOW YOUR CROWD / YOU FAKE & FAKE
DON’T TURN YOUR BACKS ON ME NOW / FOR GODNESS SAKE
ALL MY ABRACADABRAS ARE MEANINGLESS WORDS
WHOEVER YOU MIGHT BE / YOU MUST CHANGE ON YOUR OWN
YOU DO NOT MAKE ANY SENSE ALONE / YOU DO NOT MOVE LIKE A ROLLING STONE
YOU ARE NOT WHAT YOU WANT TO BE / YOU ARE JUST TEMPORARILY HAPPY

GLUE C.S.
IT’S VERY HARD TO BELIEVE / THAT YOU’RE DOING THIS ALL BY YOURSELF
VERY HARD TO BELIEVE / THAT YOU’RE DOING THIS
WITHOUT NO HELP / JUST GLUE / GLUE
SHE NEEDS YOU AND IN HER PIERCING VOICE / SHE EASILY PERSUADES
YOU HAVE NO CHOICE / EVEN IF YOU GUESS / IT’S NOT THE RIGHT THING TO DO
EVEN IF YOU DON’T FIT / IN HER SHOE
SHE’S LIKE GLUE TO YOU / YOU’RE AN ANIMAL IN HER ZOO
OBVIOUSLY THERE’S SOMETHING STRONG / BETWEEN YOU AND HER
A MAGICAL LOVE / BENEATH & ABOVE & BETWEEN / YOU AND HER
I WISH YOU GOOD LUCK / FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
WITH YOU AS HER HUSBAND / AND WITH HER AS YOUR WIFE
EVEN IF I WISH / YOU WERE SAFE AND SOUND
EVEN IF I WISH / YOU WERE ALL ALONE: “GOOD LUCK!”
SHE’S LIKE GLUE TO YOU / YOU’RE AN ANIMAL IN HER ZOO

IF C.S.
I HAVE A SORT OF A FRIEND / IF I FOLLOW / WHEN SHE RECOMMENDS
THEN I CAN / BE WITH HER / BUT I DON’T KNOW / IF SHE DESERVES

HYPOTHETICALLY, IF C.S. / J.L.
WHEN WILL THE FISH START LEARNING TO FLY
WHEN WILL THEY SPEAK / SAY HELLO AND GOODBYE
WHAT IF IT WERE NATURAL / WHAT I MEAN IS WHAT YOU’D SAY / IF I HAD IT ALL
WHEN WILL THE BIRDS ON A RAINY DAY
PUT ON THEIR RUBBERBOOTS / THEN WALK AWAY
WHEN WILL I MEAN MORE TO YOU THAN YOUR DOG
BOY WOULD YOU KISS ME / IF I WERE A FROG
WOULDN’T IT BE NATURAL THEN / IF ALL YOU HAD TO SAY WAS
I HAD ALL / IF I HAD IT ALL

EVERYTIME C.S.
EVERYTIME YOU HOLD MY HAND / EVERYTIME YOU UNDERSTAND
I DO APPRECIATE / I DO APPRECIATE
I CAN PICK AND CHOOSE YOU / OUT OF PLENTY / OUT OF FEW
I CAN DO ANYTHING / ANYTIME WITH YOU
I CAN DO EVERYTHING / EVERYTIME WITH YOU
EVERYTIME YOU LOOK AT ME / EVERYTIME / FELICITY
I DO APPRECIATE / I DO APPRECIATE
THROUGH THE BRANCHES I PEEK / IT’S A VIEW I’LL ALWAYS KEEP
DIFFERENT WORDS TO SAY / DIFFERENT MANNERS TO CONVEY
BUT I WON’T LET YOU KNOW / HOW I FEEL / ANYWAY

TALE C.S.
THIS IS A TALE / WITHOUT AN END / NONE OF US KNOW
EXACTLY WHEN / THIS WHOLE STORY BEGAN
ONCE UPON A TIME / IN A FARAWAY PLACE
A PHOTO OF A GIRL SHOWED UNUSUAL GRACE
IT WAS NOT A NUDE / OR A PIN UP GIRL
JUST A SENSITIVE FACE OF AN ATTRACTIVE RACE
IDOLIZED MODEL / IDOLIZED MODEL / IDOLIZED MODEL
EVERYONE COUNTED “ONE, TWO, THREE!” / I WISH I TURN IN TO A PHOTOCOPY
THEY HUZZLED AND STRUGGLED / BUT FAILED TO SEE
THAT SHE HAD SOMETHING SPECIAL / THAT THEY NEVER COULD ACHIEVE
ONCE UPON A TIME / AND EVEN TODAY
HUZZLERS AND STRUGGLERS GO OUT OF THEIR WAY
ONLY TO BE LIKE THE MODEL / WHAT’S SELF-ESTEEM / CAN ANYONE TELL ME?

OUT OF TUNE C.S. / J.L.
MY BIG SISTER / ARE YOU THERE
WHAT YOU CAN TELL ME / WHEN YOU’RE NOT HERE
MY BIG SISTER / WHY DID YOU DISAPPEAR
IT FELT MUCH BETTER / WHEN YOU WHERE NEAR
IF ONLY YOU CAME / WHE I CALLED YOUR NAME
THAN WHATEVER YOU DID / I WOULD DO THE SAME
I THINK YOU BETTER LISTEN TO THIS / I KNEW A COMMON GIRL
HER SHIRT WAS WHITE / NOT BLACK LIKE MY SHIRT
SHE MADE MY DAYS TURN / TURN UP / UPSIDE DOWN
WHEN SHE STOPPED THE SOUND / OF HER FAVOURITE SONG

DEW J.L.
THE NEW SONG / A TUNE / THE BREAKING DAY / DEW
THE GRASS IS ALL WET / OUR HOST FOR THE NIGHT / BLUE
AND AS BRIGHT AS THE MORNING (COMES) / THAT’S YOU
I’M TELLING YOU SECRETS OF MINE / COME TAKE ME AWAY
AS NIGHT BECOMES DAY / WE TURN BACK THE TIME / TO BE COVERED IN DEW
SHE WOULDN’T SING ALONG ANYMORE / IT WAS OUT OF TUNE / OUT OF TUNE

LYRICS BY JANNICKE LARSEN (J.L)

BACK IN TIME J.L.
WHEN WE ROW / A SUNKEN BOAT / WHEN WE GO / LIKE THIS WE KNOW
THAT WE’LL NEVER BE BACK AGAIN
WHEN WE SAIL / A SUNKEN SHIP / ALL WE KNOW / ABOUT THE TRIP
IS THAT WE’LL NEVER COME BACK AGAIN / TO THE SHORE WHERE WE STARTED IT ALL
BACK IN TIME / BACK IN TIME
WHEN WE MEET / AT NEPTUN’S LAND / BY VENUS’ HEART
THIS IS THE END / OF THIS OLD STORY I STARTED TO TELL
WITH A STRANGER I USED TO KNOW WELL
BACK IN TIME / BACK IN TIME
