AIMEE MANN Wise Up

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com AIMEE MANN Wise Up Lyrics, singer by AIMEE MANN

It’s not what you thought
When you first began it
You got what you want
Now you can hardly stand it, though
By now you know
It’s not going to stop
It’s not going to stop
It’s not going to stop
Till you wise up

You’re sure there’s a cure
And you have finally found it
You think one drink
Will shrink you till you’re underground
And living down
But it’s not going to stop
It’s not going to stop
It’s not going to stop
Till you wise up

Prepare a list for what you need
Before you sign away the deed
‘Cause it’s not going to stop
It’s not going to stop
It’s not going to stop
Till you wise up

No, it’s not going to stop
Till you wise up
No, it’s not going to stop
So just give up

AIMEE MANN Voices Carry

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com AIMEE MANN Voices Carry Lyrics, singer by AIMEE MANN

I’m in the dark, I’d like to read his mind
But I’m frightened of the things I might find
Oh, there must be something he’s thinking of
To tear him away-a-ay
When I tell him that I’m falling in love
Why does he say-a-ay

Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Uh-ah

I try so hard not to get upset
Because I know all the trouble I’ll get
Oh, he tells me tears are something to hide
And something to fear-eh-eh
And I try so hard to keep it inside
So no one can hear

Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Uh-ah

Oh!
He wants me, but only part of the time
He wants me, if he can keep me in line

Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, shut up now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, darling, she might overhear
Hush, hush – voices carry
He said shut up – he said shut up
Oh God can’t you keep it down
Voices carry
Hush hush, voices carry

AIMEE MANN Two Of Us

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com AIMEE MANN Two Of Us Lyrics, singer by AIMEE MANN

Two of us riding nowhere
Spending someone’s hard earned pay
You and me Sunday driving
Not arriving on our way back home
We’re on our way back home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home

Two of us sending postcards
Writing letters on my wall
You and me burning matches
Lifting latches on our way back home
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home

You and I have memories
Longer than the road
That stretches out ahead

Two of us wearing raincoats
Standing solo in the sun
You and me chasing paper
Getting nowhere on our way back home
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home

You and I have memories
Longer than the road
That stretches out ahead

Two of us wearing raincoats
Standing solo in the sun
You and me chasing paper
Getting nowhere on our way back home
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home

AIMEE MANN The Other End (Of The Telescope)

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com AIMEE MANN The Other End (Of The Telescope) Lyrics, singer by AIMEE MANN

Shall we agree that just this once
I’m gonna change my life
Until it’s just as tiny or
Important as you like
And in time, we won’t even recall that we spoke
Words that turned out to be as big as smoke
Like smoke, disappears in the air
There’s always something smouldering somewhere

I know it don’t make a difference to you
But oh, it sure made a difference to me
You’ll see me off in the distance, I hope
At the other end
At the other end of the telescope

There was a time not long ago
I dreamt that the world was flat
And all the colours bled away
And that was that
And in time, I could only believe in one thing
The sky was just phosphourus stars hung on strings
And you swore that they’d always be mine
When you can pull them down anytime

I know it don’t make a difference to you
But oh, it sure made a difference to me
You’ll see me off in the distance, I hope
At the other end
At the other end of the telescope

There, there baby now, don’t say a word
Lie down, baby, your vision is blurred
Your head is so sore from all of that thinking
I don’t want to hurt you now
But I think you’re shrinking (I think you’re shrinking)

You’re half-naked ambition and
You’re half out of your wits
And though your wristwatch always works
Your necktie never fits
Now it’s so hard to pick the receiver up
And when I call, I never noticed you could be so small
The answer was under your nose
But the question never arose

I know it don’t make a difference to you
But oh, it sure made a difference to me
When you find me here at the end of my rope
When the head and heart of it finally elope
You can see us off in the distance, I hope
At the other end
At the other end of the telescope

AIMEE MANN Take It Back

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com AIMEE MANN Take It Back Lyrics, singer by AIMEE MANN

I’m taking it back
I’m making a pact
I will make you indispensable
I spoke to myself
Oh, I might as well
And let you just be made sensible

Tell me your thoughts so I can love you in spite of them
But now I’m happy if I never lose sight of them

I’ll take it back
I never said it did
And that’s a fact
As of a month ago
But now that the worst is over
I can just take it back

Oh, lovers they come
Another call from
A phone booth somewhere in Lovertown
It isn’t so bad
Those others I’ve had
It isn’t as if I’m losing ground

I’m getting better when I annex myself from you
It oughtta be another country I’m moving to

I’ll take it back
I never said it did
And that’s a fact
As of a month ago
But now that the worst is over
I can just take it back

I’d like to throw myself a million miles an hour
I’d like to feel before the feeling goes sour

So take it back
I never said it did
And that’s a fact
As of a month ago
But now that the worst is over
I can just take it
Now that the worst is over
I can just take it
Now that the worst is over
I can just take it back

AIMEE MANN Sign Of Love

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com AIMEE MANN Sign Of Love Lyrics, singer by AIMEE MANN

Candellabras light your ancient eyes
Well, hope may live but passion lies
Upon your lips scratched out in blue
All loves lies are impromptu
But all of the stars in the darkness

Give me a sign
A sign of love
Give me a sign
A sign of love

Twenty thousand midnight trains will run
Past your window, tears will come
Do you, whose eyes refuse to see
Pass the test of history
But all of the stars in the darkness

Give me a sign
A sign of love
Give me a sign
A sign of love
Give me a sign
A sign of love
Give me a sign
A sign of love

The heavens are spinning
They’re shooting down at us across the sky
But still you are looking and pointing
You don’t know why, the signs are in the sky
That’s love!
But all of the stars in the darkness

Give me a sign
A sign of love
Give me a sign
A sign of love
Give me a sign
A sign of love
Give me a sign
A sign of love
Give me a sign
A sign of love
Give me a sign
A sign of love

AIMEE MANN Salvation

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com AIMEE MANN Salvation Lyrics, singer by AIMEE MANN

The carbon on the fingerprint
that’s lifted from the lighter’s flint,
that caused another smoker’s squint,
who sees the point but not the light
Salvation
And rabble-rousing diatribes
revealing more for what it hides,
who plays a little off the sides,
who swears they can sin in spite
Of salvation

The gavel of the auctioneer
The bureau with the cracked veneer
It’s going, going, gone but you’re not here.
So I laughed until I cried,
then I chose another side
when you asked me to decide
between you and staying alive.

The horoscope says let it go,
the devil is the one you know,
the one you love’s a domino,
A bull with glass and diamond eyes,
And salvation
But everywhere is two way glass
and double locks and easy pass,
turn oxygen to laughing gas,
give skeletons for Valentine’s.
Salvation

The gavel of the auctioneer,
The bureau with the cracked veneer,
It’s going, going, gone but you’re not here.
So I laughed until I cried,
then I chose another side
when you asked me to decide
between you and staying alive.

AIMEE MANN One

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com AIMEE MANN One Lyrics, singer by AIMEE MANN

One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It’s the loneliest number since the number one

No is the saddest experience you’ll ever know
Yes, it’s the saddest experience you’ll ever know
Because one is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever know

It’s just no good anymore since you went away
Now I spend my time just making rhymes of yesterday

Because one is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever know
One is the loneliest number
One is the loneliest number
One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do

One is the loneliest number, much much worse than two
One is the number divided by two

[repeat]

AIMEE MANN Momentum

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com AIMEE MANN Momentum Lyrics, singer by AIMEE MANN

Oh, for the sake of momentum
I’ve allowed my fears to get larger than life
And it’s brought me to my current agendum
Whereupon I deny fulfillment has yet to arrive

And I know life is getting shorter
I can’t bring myself to set the scene
Even when it’s approaching torture
I’ve got my routine

Oh, for the sake of momentum
Even though I agree with that stuff about seizing the day
But I hate to think of effort expended
All those minutes and days and hours
I have frittered away.

And I know life is getting shorter
I can’t bring myself to set the scene
Even when it’s approaching torture
I’ve got my routine

But I can’t confront the doubts I have
I can’t admit that maybe the past was bad
And so, for the sake of momentum
I’m condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.

When I can’t confront the doubts I have
I can’t admit that maybe the past was bad
And so, for the sake of momentum
I’m condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.

AIMEE MANN Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com AIMEE MANN Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds Lyrics, singer by AIMEE MANN

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with caleidoscope eyes.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she’s gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds, ah, ah

Follow her downto a bridge by the fountain
where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies.
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high.

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
And you’re gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds, ah, ah

Picture yourself on a train in a station
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile,
The girl with caleidoscope eyes.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds, ah, ah…
