SARAH JAFFE lyrics - The Way Sound Leaves A Room

Louder Than Ever

Original and similar lyrics
All my windows are barred The sun makes us drop a shade I was sitting round like a zombie Feeding my own face I was counting my chi I was digging my strange I was taking you for granted You were holding the reigns I can hear you louder than ever Whisper to me, help me remember I can't see you, but we're still together I can hear you louder than ever It's a slippery slope Like that mousetrap game Inside my tunnel vision You stepped on my train I can hear you louder than ever Whisper to me, help me remember I can't see you, but we're still together I can hear you louder than ever I don't wanna ignore You or the past or my feelings How we gonna get outta this Just hear me out anyway Darkness snuck in Now I'm doubting all my promises Try and pull me out of this Just lay down by me and wait I can hear you louder than ever Whisper to me, help me remember I can hear you louder than ever Whisper to me, help me remember I can't see you, but we're still together I can hear you louder than ever

Ticking

ELTON JOHN "Caribou"
'An extremely quiet child' they called you in your school report 'He's always taken interest in the subjects that he's taught' So what was it that brought the squad car screaming up your drive To notify your parents of the manner in which you died At St. Patricks every Sunday, Father Fletcher heard your sins 'Oh, he's unconcerned with competition he never cares to win' But blood stained a young hand that never held a gun And his parents never thought of him as their troubled son 'Now you'll never get to Heaven' Mama said Remember Mama said Ticking, ticking 'Grow up straight and true blue Run along to bed' Hear it, hear it, ticking, ticking They had you holed up in a downtown bar screaming for a priest Some gook said 'His brain's just snapped' then someone called the police You'd knifed a Negro waiter who had tried to calm you down Oh you'd pulled a gun and told them all to lay still on the ground Promising to hurt no one, providing they were still A young man tried to make a break, with tear-filled eyes you killed That gun butt felt so smooth and warm cradled in your palm Oh your childhood cried out in your head 'they mean to do you harm' 'Don't ever ride on the devil's knee' Mama said Remember mama said Ticking, ticking 'Pay your penance well, my child Fear where angels tread' Hear it, hear it, ticking, ticking Within an hour the news had reached the media machine A male caucasian with a gun had gone berserk in Queens The area had been sealed off, the kids sent home from school Fourteen people lying dead in a bar they called the Kicking Mule Oh they pleaded to your sanity for the sake of those inside 'Throw out your gun, walk out slow just keep your hands held high' But they pumped you full of rifle shells as you stepped out the door Oh you danced in death like a marionette on the vengeance of the law 'You've slept too long in silence' Mama said Remember Mama said Ticking, ticking 'Crazy boy, you'll only wind up with strange notions in your head' Hear it, hear it, ticking, ticking

License To Thrill

BILLY IDOL "Charmed Life"
Breath of life For which a man must grieve Blood of love Into my heart Tonight we'll dream A license to thrill I'll sing you on girl I'll make you high world Lovers turn again to dreams Oh tonight A license to thrill I hear voices Screaming louder Seem to break a spell Watcha gonna do I hear voices SInging louder Oh yeah oh yeah Breathe tonight And slowly come down Into my heart Tonight we'll dream A license to thrill Oh sleeper Yes, restless dreamer, She comes, face her Untie your lips I'll turn you on girl You make me high world Turn again to dreams Untie your hips And with Animal grace Embrace her Oh the taste A license to thrill I hear voices Screaming louder Seem to break a spell Watcha gonna do I hear voices Screaming louder Sing a farewell Watcha gonna do I hear voices Screaming louder Screaming louder into the night Try to break a spell I say yeah Sing a last farewell Watcha gonna do I'll sing you on girl I'll make you high A license to thrill

More Like The Movies

Dr. Hook the Medicine Show "A Little Bit More"
(Shel Silverstein) I guess the dance is over now So you just curtsey and I'll bow And ask the band to play us Auld Lang Syne Then I'll just take what's left of me Right back to where it used to be And you'll go sail your magic carpet, far across the sky I wish I could have made it More like the movies for you Some pretty Technicolor way it's never been I'm sorry when I kissed you You only heard me whisper You never got to hear those violins Did you girl? No you never got to hear those violins, no The castles that you built so high Were just too steep for me to climb And I guess these dirty streets of mine Were just too rough for you I wish I could've helped you see Just one of your sweet childhood dreams But though I tried I could not make not one of them come true And I wish I could have made it More like the movies for you Some pretty Technicolor way it's never been I'm sorry when I kissed you You only heard me whisper You never got to hear those violins Did you girl? No you never got to hear those violins Oh I'm sorry when I kissed you You only heard me whisper You never got to hear those violins No you never got to hear those violins

Closer To You

THE WALLFLOWERS "Red Letter Days"
How soft a whisper can get When you're walking through a crowded space I hear every word being said And I remember that everyday I get a little bit closer to you How long an hour can take When you're starting into open space When I feel I'm slipping further away I remember that everyday I get a little bit closer to you These are the days That I won't get back I won't hear you cry Or hear you laugh And when it's quite And I don't hear a thing I can always hear you breathe You know there's nowhere else I've wanted to be Than be there when you need me I'm sorry too But don't give up on me And just remember that when you get asleep I got a little bit closer to you

Stockholm Syndrome

BLINK 182 "Blink 182"
This is the first (thing I remember) Now it's the last (thing left on my mind) Afraid of the dark (do you hear me whisper) An empty heart (replaced with paranoia) Where do we go (life's temporary) After we're gone (like new years resolutions) Why is this hard (do you recognize me) I know I'm wrong (but I can't help believing) I'm so lost I'm barely here I wish I could explain myself But words escape me It's too late To save me You're too late You're too late You're cold with disappointment While I'm drowning in the next room The last contagious victim of this plague between us I'm sick with apprehension I'm crippled from exhaustion And I dread the moment when you finally come to kill me This is the first (thing I remember) Now it's the last (thing left on my mind) Afraid of the dark (do you hear me whisper) An empty heart (replaced with paranoia) Where do we go (life's temporary) After we're gone (like new years resolutions) Why is this hard (do you recognize me) I know I'm wrong (but I can't help believing)
