INDIGO GIRLS lyrics - Swamp Ophelia

Language Or The Kiss

Original and similar lyrics
I don't know if it was real or in a dream Lately waking up I'm not sure where I've been There was a table set for six and five were there I stood outside and kept my eyes upon that empty chair And there was steam on the windows from the kitchen Laughter like a language I once spoke with ease But I'm made mute by the virtue of decision I choose most of your life goes on without me Oh the fear I've known That I might reap the praise of strangers and end up on my own All I've sown was a song But maybe I was wwrong I said to you the one gift which I'd adore Unwrap a package of the next 10 years unfolding But you told me if I had my way I'd be bored Right then I knew I loved you best born of your scolding When we last talked we were lying on our backs Looking up at the sky through the ceiling I used to lie like that alone out on the driveway Trying to read the greek upon the stars the alphabet of healing Oh I knew back then It was a calling that said if joy then pain The sound of the voice these years later is still the same I am alone in a hotel room tonight I squeeze the sky out but there's not a star appears Begin my studies with this paper and this pencil And I'm working through the grammar of my fears Mercy what I won't give To have the things which mean the most not to mean the things I miss Unforgiving the choice still is The language or the kiss

Oh, How The Mighty Have Fallen

ALESANA "Confessions"
I’m having trouble breathing And if I don’t think fast I’m likely to find myself here for good Panic sets in as I start to question Why I see you standing there beyond the glass... Who said that we never would touch the speed of light? So far behind me, understanding Stars become rivers flowing backwards, oh yea! When did my heartbeat start to echo? Why are my thoughts now fading, drifting, yea! Twisting, yea! tearing, yea! bleeding, yea! Excuse me, are you a maniac? I am and I’m okay with that My moon, my stars, One last night, one final kiss Desire begging me not to go Goodbye my everything I’m terrified, I pull you near Making sure that you are real Open my eyes, it was all a dream Goodbye my everything An endless maze, a mobiüs labyrinth Exodus, redemption, where have you gone! And yet your gaze will not cease to burn into me! So far removed, so mockingly you observe Pariah, hypocrite! I will be free! And yet you will remain Excuse me, are you a maniac? I am and I’m okay with that My moon, my stars, One last night, one final kiss Desire begging me not to go Goodbye my everything I’m terrified, I pull you near Making sure that you are real Open my eyes, it was all a dream Goodbye my everything, goodbye my everything No! Futile screams go unheard Incarcerated by so many walls No! Imprisoned and banished within a nexus of my own design Don’t go back, don’t leave me Hide from the world, let’s not exist Please God kill me! Time is mocking me and now I’m fighting gravity, yea I’m destroying me, colliding worlds will set you free A straight line is not the shortest distance between two points! I know that now! But I’m afraid it might be too late! Will we come back from this? Hold my hand, I’m blind! Show me how, I’m lost! My God it’s beautiful The portal opens, time is slowing, no turning back now, ‘Bel My moon, my stars, One last night, one final kiss Desire begging me not to go Goodbye my everything I’m terrified, I pull you near Making sure that you are real Open my eyes, it was all a dream Goodbye my everything, goodbye my everything No! Futile screams go unheard Incarcerated by so many walls No! Imprisoned and banished within a nexus of my own design

You Are The Only Song

HARRY CHAPIN "Legends of the Lost Found"
I've sung it all tonight Almost every story that I know And now when they turn out the spotlights I'm not sure where I'm s'posed to go And I'm so hoarse I can't hit the high notes It's just a whisper when I'm low But when you sing from the inside You hope that something shows And that it why Yes you are the only song, the only song I need You're my laughter and you're my lonely song You're the harvest and you're the seed And you're my first and my final song For you own me indeed Oh yes, oh yes, Yes, after all is said and done You're the one song that I need I've sung my songs to silence To empty clubs and crowded bars I've sung my songs to standing room Even sung 'em to the stars But the faces they fade together And the applause it's gone so fast And the story of every darkened stage Is that the glory just does not last And that is why Yes after all is said and done You're the one song that I need All my life's a circle...

Sure it's a gas (We're) Stuck in an English class Can't even dream So it's hard to accept the role you're given When you're sittin' there staring at the ceiling Wishing you were so very far from here When you're 13 What fors and whys If he's got it why can't I You're my queen And I dream about you when I'm in my bed And if all of these things are like you said Then I'd rather be in another scene When I'm 14 Just not fair I'm not getting anywhere Oh hard as a stone They expect us to make it out alone And they scream at us when we're on the phone And they lecture us all about routine When you're 15 Get out of here You're crowding my tender years Don't say you see Cos you'd forgotten what it's like to be And I'm sure that it's changed to some degree Christ's advice ain't never as it seemed When you're 16 Four years go You've fallen before you know You're now of age And you're thrown in a different cage And you're faced with another blank page And I know I don't need to be told

Envy

Briskeby
Your life must be perfect You were born a star My friends always tells me Just how wonderful you are You know every pick-up line That works tonight Or is it that mysterious charm And your jeans so tight It's you I envy, it's you I envy It's you I so secretly adore Your days must be splendid And the nights a treasure My friends always dream Of your presence and pleasure They add you to the seven wonders Of the world And that's pretty neat for a boy or a girl It's you I envy, it's you I envy It's you I so secretly adore
