Vanessa Carlton – A Thousand Miles

Makin’ my way downtown,
Walkin’ fast,
Faces pass and I’m homebound.

Starin’ blankly ahead,
Just makin’ my way,
Makin’ a way through the crowd.

And I need you,
And I miss you,
And now I wonder…

If I could fall into the sky,
Do you think time
would pass me by?
‘Cause you know I’d walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you…
Tonight.

It’s always times like these
When I think of you,
And wonder if you ever think of me.

‘Cause everything’s so wrong
And I don’t belong.
Livin’ in your precious memory.

‘Cause I need you,
And I miss you,
And now I wonder…

If I could fall into the sky,
Do you think time
would pass me by?
‘Cause you know I’d walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you…
Tonight.

I, I, don’t wanna let you know
I, I, drown in your memory.
I, I, don’t wanna let this go.
I, I, don’t.

Makin’ my way downtown,
Walkin’ fast,
Faces pass and I’m homebound.

Starin’ blankly ahead,
Just makin’ my way,
Makin’ a way through the crowd.

And I still need you,
And I still miss you,
And now I wonder…

If I could fall into the sky,
Do you think time
Would pass.. us by?
‘Cause you know I’d walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you…

oh oh

If I could fall into the sky,
Do you think time would pass me by?
‘Cause you know I’d walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you.

If I could just hold you….
Tonight.

Sunday -> Farewell

A song from the album “Three Flights From Alto Nido”:

my love i cannot stay
my love i am running late
my love all has not been a waste
in a life that you have brought upon me

so farewell love this is goodbye let’s not take our time
so farewell love this isn’t getting any easier
and you let go to what the end will show
ba ba da ba da da da

my love i cannot stay
my love all has not been a waste
my love i am running late
from the life that you have brought upon me

so farewell love this is goodbye let’s not take our time
so farewell love this isn’t getting any easier
and you let go to what the end will show
ba ba da ba da da da

so farewell love this is goodbye let’s not take our time
so farewell love this isn’t getting any easier
and you let go but to what end will show
ba ba da ba da da da

i’m gonna sing this for you

i’m gonna sing this for you

so farewell love this is goodbye let’s not take our time
so farewell love this isn’t getting any easier
and you let go to what the end will show
ba ba da ba da da da

Saturday -> Sweet Dream

If I could write out my own dream
For the next time that I sleep
You’d be the first one that I see
And I the last one that you keep
The dream would go on and on
While we sway
Against all things thrown our way
And the morning would be so cruel
When it came
With sunshine and warmth to blame
For announcing the end of my sweet dream
For announcing the end of my sweet dream

Friday -> That It Moves

Another song from my favourite album by Greg Laswell “Three Flights From Alto Nido“:

Here’s a song that I waited to write with you
Think I’ll finish it instead
I got enough from you, love
That it finishes itself I regret

Oh but do you like the way that it moves?
Oh do you like the way that it moves?
Oh do you like the way that it moves?
Oh do you like the way that it moves?

Here’s a song that’s been in my head
So many things we said, never quite were sung
Take the melody, love
And forget the words if you must

Oh but do you like the way that it moves?
[ Greg Laswell Lyrics are found on http://www.songlyrics.com ]
Oh do you like the way that it moves?
Oh do you like the way that it moves?
Oh do you like the way that it moves?

Take your time with the meter
The rhythm will find you if you play it through
and if I’m there at the turn, dear
We can give an ending that I think this song is due

Cause I think I like the way that we moved?
Oh I think I like the way that we moved?
Oh did you like the way that we moved?
Oh did you like the way that we moved?
That we moved?

(Here’s a song that I waited to write with you
Think I’ll finish it instead)

Thursday -> How the Day Sounds

A great song from the album”Three Flights From Alto Nido” !!!

Oh who would have
Ever known this?
Could be this easy
I was a long, long way off
Then just like that it was over
Everything I knew of love
I was a long, long way off

And I think I like
How the day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song

Thank you for opening the window
The sky is clear as my mind is now
I was a long, long way off
Join me in welcoming the sun in
It’s much brighter
Than the night I hid in
I was a long, long way off

And I think I like how
The day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song
And I think I like how
The day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song

From a long way down

Yeah, it’s well worth the time
That it’s taken to get here now
Yeah, it’s well worth the time
That it’s taken to get here now

Ba da dum

So go ahead and bang a gong
Nothing can drown
Out the sound
And the whisper of my love

And I think I like how
The day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song
And I think I like how
The day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song
Through this new song
Through this new song

And the blinds
Have all been drawn
I know where I belong
Where I belong,
Where I belong
And the blinds
Have all been drawn
I know where I belong
Where I belong

And I think I like
How the day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song
And I think I like how
The day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song

Oh, won’t you sing along
Oh, my love
Won’t you sing along
Oh, won’t you sing along
Oh, my love
Won’t you sing along
Oh, won’t you sing along
Oh, my love
Won’t you sing along
Oh, won’t you sing along
Oh, my love
Won’t you sing along

Wednesday -> The One I Love

I’m all packed up now early in the morning
I’ll take my leave
I’ll bring your words along with me
Maybe one day they will mean something

For now they buzz and crumble down
A little bit too easily
From a time that I am not quite over
What the hell is wrong with me

I might be gone a little while
I guess we’ll see
I gotta make a home outta somewhere
And you’re all over this city

And it’ll take a flight to figure out
Where I’m gonna finally land
And the time it takes for me get there
I’ll be one to start again

But i should probably say that I’m unsure why I’m running
Running away from
The only thing i want
Yeah, i should probably say that I’m unsure why I’m running
Running away from the one I love

And if the plane lifts off
I’ll write you a letter, to say goodbye
And I will make it long and maybe lie just a little
Tell you that I’m doing fine

Then I’ll send it out and let things be
If not for you
For me and for the time I’ve spent foolishly loving thee

But I should probably say that I’m unsure why I’m running
Running away from
The only thing I want
Yeah, I should probably say that I’m unsure why I’m running
Running away from the one I love

Tuesday – And Then You

How my thoughts they spin me ’round
And how my thoughts they let me down
And how my thoughts they spin me ’round
And how my thoughts they let me down

How my dreams they spin me ’round
And how my dreams they let me down
And how my thoughts they spin me ’round
And how my thoughts they let me down

And then there’s you
Then there’s you
And then there’s you
Then there’s you

How my love it spins me ’round
And how my love it’s let me down
And how my thoughts they spin me ’round
And how my thoughts they let me down

And then there’s you
Then there’s you
And then there’s you
Then there’s you

You know I know who that you love
I’ve written it on myself, if you can’t tell
With a melody that climbs and then falls, then falls, then falls
Without you, without you

How my days they spin me ’round
And how today it sets me down
And how my days they spin me ’round
And how today it sets me down

Alongside you
Alongside you
Alongside you
