Morning hours

  1. The contents of my heart

  2. I can always forget

  3. If you do not ask for more

  4. In The Early Morning Hours

  5. Like cologne

  6. Maybe I

  7. No easy way

  8. Not a woman

  9. Nothing for you

  10. October nights

  11. Powder Room Collapse

  12. Sometimes

  13. Starlight of your heart

  14. To be your lover

1. The contents of my heart

 

I offer you

The contents of my heart

With all the grief and ignorance that I've collected through the years

 

I offer you

My fearful mind

With all the doubts and wants and wrong beliefs that you will surely find

 

But I do

Offer you

Heaven in my heart

Though small and sometimes hard to trace

 

I do

 

It is my heart

That found you

It is my heart that tells me to go to you and offer all I am

 

I offer you

The contents of my heart

I can not promise anything, but here I am

 

And I do

Offer you

Heaven in my heart

Though small and sometimes hard to trace

 

I do

Offer you

Heaven in my heart

 

I do

2. I can always forget

 

I never want live without it

But I can always forget

There are stories, most are secrets

I want always regret

 

I had so many years to try to understand the reason why

I wish I could forgive myself the way that you forgive me then

The story I will not tell

But you know so well

 

I never want live without it

But I can always forget

There are stories, most are secrets

I want always regret

 

I knew it then

And I lost a friend

I wonder if you knew I loved you

I broke my own heart

 

I never want live without it

But I can always forget

There are stories, most are secrets

I want always regret

 

Your name is Jew

Once I did you wrong and I've been sorry for so long

3. If you do not ask for more

 

She'll make your day

Make your night

Make your wrongs all right

She'll make you smile

And remember how

Good it is all to live

 

But she can turn

She can fight

She can change sides

She can leave

When you need her most

It's hard cause you never know

 

So close your eyes with joy at night

When she reads next to you

 

Thank heaven for that day

Thank heaven for this night

Know when she gives

She gives her all

Do not ask for my friend

Cause that you know is the end

 

Do not you cry

Do not call you

When she waves goodbye

Let her leave do not ask why

Smile and wish her well

 

And her eyes with joy at night

If she's not by your side

 

Thank heaven for those days

Thank heaven for the nights she gave

And know when she gives, she gives her all

If you do not ask for more

She'll come back to your door

Like all the times before

If you do not ask for more

4. In The Early Morning Hours

 

n the early morning hours

When your eyes are still closed

You are quiet and the sun has

Not yet seen your face

I lay wide awake beside you

I'm about to move close

As I do, you turn towards me

And open your eyes

 

In the early morning hours

Oh, oh, I

know

 

Words seagull to have left me

Well there's no need for them at all

Time has lost all measures

The world seems so whole

The sky outside the window

Is as near as your face

I find myself in heaven

And reach your embrace

 

In the early morning hours

Oh, oh, I

know

 

If the evening comes to bless us

I want to lay my head down

On a pillow full of mornings

In this sky that came down

And if you still lay beside me

I know for sure I'll move close

I know I'll wake up early

To be there when you open the sky

 

In the early morning hours

Oh, oh, I

know

5. Like cologne

 

This is my heart

This is your home

They are the same

 

I'm wearing your kiss

Here on my lips

I feel like dressing up with more of you

 

I want to wear you like cologne

And I'm Alone

 

When you return

I've aired all rooms

Polished the floor

 

Painted the walls

Colored anew

This time with every little shade of you

 

I want to wear you like cologne

And I'm Alone

When I'm alone

Here I stand with open arms

An open heart because it's all I know

 

This is my heart

This is your home

They are the same

 

Piano solo

 

I want to wear you like cologne

And I'm Alone

When I'm alone

Here I stand with open arms

An open heart because it's all I know

6. Maybe I

 

Maybe I felt next in line

Maybe I

Maybe I saw hard times coming

Maybe I did

 

I've been drinking happily from

Empty glasses i made up

 

Maybe I thought wrongs were right

Maybe I did

 

I would wait that I could wait

Giving in, believing in faith

 

Maybe I saw big fat

Maybe I

Maybe I saw them all mine

Maybe they were

 

I would wait that I could wait

Giving in, believing in faith

 

Time went by and so did I

Did not I, did not wait

 

I've tried so hard to understand the meaning

And I could lay my head

Giving in, believing in faith

7. No easy way

 

I know I did not do this well

God knows that I tried

Just about this time last night

Left you by the road side

Left you while you cried

There is nothing more to tell you

To make things right in your eyes

 

There's no easy way to leave you

There's no easy way to turn

There's no easy way

To say goodbye

No words can tell how we failed

If you do not know by now

 

We have left at empty house

A long time ago

I wish that we would know how

To see the other's heart

We did not even start

There is nothing more to tell you 
to make it right in your eyes

 

There's no easy way to leave you

There's no easy way to turn

There's no easy way

To say goodbye

No words can tell how we failed

If you do not know by now

 

I see it in your eyes that you do not know me at all

 

It's too late to start again

Too soon to understand

It's too late to talk things over

Besides I've said enough

And now it's time to stop

There is nothing more to tell you

8. Not a woman

 

She's not a woman you wanna let wait

She's not a woman you'd see

Ask for more

Ask for less

Ask for anything

 

She's a woman you wanna get near

When you do it is you

Who wants more

even though

You knew it had it all

 

You do not wanna play the game

Cause then you're just a name

 

What you wanna give

Is what you wanna be

When all is good

You do not need to ask

For anything to last

Cause they do not need you to be

Anything you're not

 

When you stand to a woman like that

You're the man you can

All is good

No more shoulds

And everything is true

 

You do not need to play a game

Cause then you're just a name

 

What you wanna give

Is what you wanna be

When all is good

You do not need to ask

For anything to last

Cause they do not need you to be

Anything you're not

 

Nothing more to be lost except for what your past has cost

 

What you wanna give

9. Nothing for you

 

You have some many words to speak

But nothing to say

There are many tales I could tell

But none that did me well

 

And now you ask me for a moment or two

I have a few

But nothing for you

 

You broke into my heart everyday

Took a look around and said

It was not good, and I should

Be ashamed of what it could

 

And now you ask me for a heartbeat or two

I have a few, but none are for you

 

There is nothing you can say

To make me want to come your way

 

You've had all your chances in my life

And the choices you made are made

I do not believe what parts you and I

Is the river of tears I cried

 

I hear you say you're asking for me

Growing old and alone

Lying in your bed every night

With tears in your eyes

 

So now, you ask me for a feeling or two

I have a few, but nothing for you

 

There is nothing you can say

To make me want to come your way

 

You've had all your chances in my life

And the choices you made are made

I do not believe what parts you and I

Is the river of tears I cried

10. October nights

 

Winds roll in from the north, nights get cold

Evening hours seagull to start too early every year

Oh lonely is the one who can not

Forgive him self

Then no one else

Can enter through his heart

 

Cold, cold October night

Memories he holds too tight

 

Water falls from clouds that can not hold

Somewhere down the riverbank runs something she once had

Long gone

Empty is the one who can not

Forget the past

And all she was

Moments never last

 

Cold, cold October rain

Nothing ever stays the same

 

Pictures of a life in paints of gold

Evening hours close up

Oh blessed is the one who knows

October nights and never hides

From autumn nights alone

 

 

Cold, cold October night

Memories he holds too tight

Cold, cold October rain

Nothing ever stays the same

11. Cover me with snow

 

Red velvet carpet floor

Mirrors on the wall

Desires in a life pass by

Most of them unsatisfied

 

Underneath a crazy moon

Secrets of a powder room

Dirty lipstick on the shelf

7-up and hair gel

 

Is my makeup done all right

Will my hairdo last all night

Happiness for everyone

Peace and love and shiny stones

 

I could be ready

I could be ready

Ready for the moon outside

To take me out for drinks tonight

I could be ready

I could be ready

A powder room collapse tonight

Can I just get my hair right

 

Sales tax and facial aid

Confidence and fair trade

Thighs ass and cellulite

Democracy and human rights

 

Is my makeup done all right

Will my hairdo last all night

Happiness for everyone

Peace and love and shiny stones

 

I could be ready

I could be ready

Ready for the moon outside

To take me out for drinks tonight

I could be ready

I could be ready

A powder room collapse tonight

Can I just get my hair right

12. Sometimes

 

A face is still a face

After all the different ways it cries

A face is still a face

After all the smiles have faded

 

When you close those eyes

When you dry those tears

 

A life is still a life

After all the different ways it goes

A soul is still a soul

After all the lives have faded

 

When you close those eyes

When you dry those tears

 

Sometimes you go

Sometimes you stay

Sometimes you cry

Sometimes you laugh

Sometimes you leave

Sometimes you know

13. Starlight of your heart

 

If you hear this song

Know it's for you

If you hear this song

Know it's true

Every line and every sound

Is you

 

if you hear this song

You know you kept

That piece of my heart cause

That's what I left

My shiniest star

As often as you are

I'm too

 

I live to be starlight in your heart

I give you this song

I give you this song

This song is you

 

 

If you hear this song

Know it's for you

If you hear this song

Know it is true

Nothing has changed

And traveling stars go

 

Far, go far go far and I give my all to you

 

I live to be starlight in your heart

I give you this song, I give you this song

This song is you

14. To be your lover

 

I live my life in a house

Of your advice

You say you care for me

And worry that

When I'm away

Someday I want to loose my

Way to you and all I do

Is everything you told me not to

You may be right

but

 

I do not need

You to save me

I just need to be your lover tonight

 

You find it hard to believe

That I do not need

You are watching over me

And all I do,

So find a way

To make my own mistakes

My way to you is not to do

With anything you're trying to

But I do not know how long

Cause


I do not need

You to save me

I just need to be your lover tonight

I do not need

You to save me

I just need to be a lover in your arms

 

My feet are weak

I've been so far to follow your advice

My arms are sore

From carrying the weight of your concerns

Now you know

It's soon before I go

 

I do not need

You to save me

I just need to be your lover tonight
