EMILIE AUTUMN lyrics - A Bit O' This & That

Photographic Memory

Original and similar lyrics
You're not so far away You're sitting in the space between the night and day And so I'll wait for the sound of your footsteps The tea that's brewed too strong The part of me that's waited patiently for oh so long At least I try But I'm relying On my photographic memory While painfully realizing It's not all that it's cracked up to be And falling's just another way to fly I wonder why it's never easier than The first time

Through The Long Night

BILLY JOEL "Glass Houses"
The cold hands The sad eyes The dark Irish silence It's so late But I'll wait Through the long night with you With you The warm tears The bad dreams The soft trembling shoulders The old fears But I'm here Through the long night with you With you Oh, what has it cost you I almost lost you A long, long time ago Oh, you should have told me But you had to bleed to know All your past sins Are since past You should be sleeping It's all right Sleep tight Through the long night with me With me No, I didn't start it You're broken hearted From a long, long time ago Oh, the way you hold me Is all that I need to know And it's so late But I'll wait Through the long night with you With you

After You

JIMMY WAYNE "Jimmy Wayne"
This old four-way stop I've been here a lot More times than I can count Right goes to Mama's place Left to the interstate Straight ahead goes straight through town It's good to be back home I waited way too long A part of my heart has never been gone CHORUS: 'Cause I'm not one bit closer to being over you It's almost like the hands of time haven't moved 'Cause everywhere I look I see your memory Hanging round They ought to name this town after you There's where we used to park The night my truck wouldn't start We gave into love the very first time There's where you said you'd wait Till I came back someday Too many some days slipped on by That's where you live now Elm Street, second house I can't blame you girl for settlin' down CHORUS You, after you Things will never be the same But then again after you Everything is still the same CHORUS

The Long One

JOSH GRACIN "Josh Gracin"
There's no holding you back when you're leaving I'll have to face it alone until tomorrow And as your fading away I know it's a matter of hours til the tears begin Guess I'll turn out the lights and I'll settle in For the long one For the restless night As your memory fades with no end in sight It's a strong one and it holds on tight Laying in the darkness Praying for the morning sun It's a long one I've been through this before it wasn't easy I think I'm ready this time I think I'm ready I'll lay down on this bed and then I'll imagine your touch and I'll see your face And the shadows will come and surround this place For the long one For the restless night As your memory fades with no end in sight It's a strong one and it holds on tight Laying in the darkness Praying for the morning sun It's a long one These days go by so fast I just turn around then they're gone And when the night time goes It's long and lonely Holding on and on For the long one For the restless night As your memory fades with no end in sight It's a strong one and it holds on tight Laying in the dark Praying for the morning sun It's a long one It's a long one

JULIAN CASABLANCAS "Tyranny"
Don't forget the wrong guy in the lineup Tryin' hard to be strong always rolling over I will try to guitar out, quoting scripture Soon you won't have memories, only pictures Wait back, the time is not right (o-o-oh) The chase is much better at night (o-o-oh) I wait for the time of his high (o-o-oh) My ego is quite out of hand (o-o-oh) Watch the flames go out Soon - No, now that's my mission I've taken away your natural purpose That is what a loving - selfish, loving human does That is what it sounds like to an insect Hold that trial by night I've been sitting with him all night Hold my ears it's wrong I can't listen to this too long Pitchforks, fires in hand I can't turn it around tonite I want to get back Back to where I can sleep at night Wait for the back of his heart Lesson learned I'm trying but maybe too hard, like an Eskimo I listen, but I - but I can't - what I want to say… My ego is out of control, yes I know Please, can I go? Can I hold it? - It's part of the show It saves me 2 dollars if kids do the work Can we shake it Up in time? I don't know Destroy it So destroy it Just destroy it Destroy it Burn it down, to the ground

I Guess It's Time (Acoustic)

JOSH ABBOTT BAND "Scapegoat"
[Verse 1] I’m sitting under pine and oak trees waiting on a summer breeze to cool me down. I think I’ve been up since dawn, your memories carry on without a sound. [Chorus] So I’ll be sitting here thinking what to do. God knows how I miss you. It’s a shame this is what we’re gonna do. But I guess its time I started getting over you. [Verse 2] You’re like the peacocks down at the park, so beautiful but you mean no harm and you can’t be caught. I thought I had you in my arms one time and everything was fine until we fought. [Bridge] It’s like the moment when the rain falls down, how you broke my heart, what a lonely sound. The clouds open to a new, clear sky. Let me clear my mind, I guess its time.
