"Sub Rosa" (2003)




This Paralysis lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

Nothing bitchy will ever leave my lips
And this tingle in my fingertips
Isn't really
A heart attack
Man on the curb
Breathing heavily
And the fear now
That is eating me
Isn't really
From a heart attack 

And this paralysis
Needs no analysis
As I fall apart
At the seams

Feels like centuries
That you have played with me
And in times like this
It escapes me
Why you attack my lead balloon
With your hard attack

And this paralysis
Needs no analysis
As I fall apart
At the seams
From your knockout punch
That floored me with a crunch
To end my unbeaten run
On the scene

Wipe me off the floor
Cut the ground from under me
You wore me like a frock
From a stupid fantasy
We pushed out of bounds
Kicked it from the ground
All 'cause the love we found
Was too tightly wound

I'm in the ocean
I can't feel the ground
And approaching me
Without a sound
Is a thing with attitude
Like a shark attack

And this paralysis
Needs no analysis
As I fall apart
At the seams
From your knockout punch
That floored me with a crunch
To end my unbeaten run
On the scene

Skull Tattoo lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

Lord you know what makes a lonely man
All it takes is to be
Racing down where you never be found
Oh don't let me fall that low again
When you're gone that far
Only one thing's going to get you up

She is the woman with the skull tattoo
Her skin is black and eyes are blue
Takes me to heaven when I think of you
She picked me up in a gutter downtown

Lord know I lost my faith in you
So it goes when you are
Racing down where you'll never be found
Your dark angel spread her wing again
When you've gone that far
Only one thing is going to pick you up

She is the woman with the skull tattoo
Her skin is black and her eyes are blue
Takes me to heaven when I think of you
She picked me up in a gutter downtown

The Strange lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

It's an egg hunt for dates
On new roller-skates
While grooms and their brides
Take horse-drawn rides
Unless you've seen it
You cannot believe it
It's so, so bizarre

Boys gone bad
With their absentee dads
Who live with their pets
'Cause they're hedgin' their bets
Unless you're seen it 
You cannot believe it
It's so, so bizarre

How can it be, that it's only me
How can it be, that it's only me

It's a well-known song
And he's singin' it wrong
But the crowd's on the bong
So they all clap along
Unless you've seen it
You cannot believe it
It's so, so bizarre

It's a summertime vibe
And the park is alive
And the actors arrive to be led on their lines
Unless you're seen it 
You cannot believe it
It's so, so bizarre

How can it be, that it's only me
How can it be, that it's only me
That sees the strange
The strange, the strange

It's Up To You lyrics - eagle eye cherry

Downtown is where it all went down
Getting up with nothing to do
Don't know what street I lived on
And I'm not sure I ever knew
Well it goes on I've got more to tell
Can't promise you that it's all true

It's up to you to figure out
Which part is true

Now anxiety has arrested me
And it's hard to tell what gets me through
But I do recall many things I've seen
And worst of all I think it's true

It's up to you to figure out
Which part is true

Wish I would have stayed in bed that day
And this memory would be there to
Now I can't make it go away
And that's why it must be true

It's up to you to figure out
Which part is true

Don't Give Up lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

All our dreams are gone
With a loss of faith
We're still hanging on
For another day
It's so hard to see
That it's going to get better
And when will that be
It's hard to say

We must believe
That if we give we will receive
Yes we must believe
That it's going to get better

Don't give up
Never give up
We won't stop
Giving all we got

Don't Give up
Never give up
We won't stop
Giving all we got

Now we're breaking away
From what holds us down
This could be the day
That brings out the light
Now we're marching on
With the will of never giving up
This time we'll have won
Without a fight

We must believe
That if we give we will receive
Yes we must believe
That it's going to get better

Don't give up
Never give up
We won't stop
Giving all we got

Don't give up
Never give up
We won't stop
Giving all we got

Don't give up
Never give up
We won't stop
Giving all we got

We must believe
That if we give we will receive
Yes we must believe
That it's going to get better

Don't give up
Never give up
We won't stop
Giving all we got
[x7]

How Come lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

I can still see the change
In the falling rain
How come we can't do the same
How come

I see the angry scar
But the wound is tame
How come we can't do the same
How come

I hear the church bells laugh
It's a wedding day
How come we don't feel that way
How come

When the clouds step aside
(I don't want to be you)
The sun lets them live
(you don't want to be me)
How come we can't forgive
(neither one should be)
How come

When the clouds step aside
(I don't want to be here)
The sun lets them live
(you don't want to be here)
How come we can't forgive
(there is nobody here)
How come
(there is nobody here)
How come

Feels So Right lyrics - eagle eye cherry

Too shy to
To follow through
But it is true
Yes, I do love you
You say no
But I won't go
'Cause all I know
Is you and I are meant to be
You and I are meant to be

Too proud to
Give in to
All the love
That I wanna lay on you
So called no
Say it ain't so
'Cause all I know
Is that you and I are meant to be
You and I are meant to be

Feels so right
Feels so right
It feels so right

Too lost to
Realize who
Well here's one clue
I'm standing right in front of you
Don't say no
'Cause I can't go
Well all I know
Is that you and I are meant to be
You and I are meant to be

Feels so right
Feels so right
It feels so right

Too shy
Too proud
To speak
Too loud
Too high
Too low
Too weak
To know
Too much
To give
To want
To live
Too much
To give
To want
To feel
Alright

You say no
I still won't go
'Cause all I know is that
You and I are meant to be
You and I are meant to be

Feels so right
It feels so right
It feels so right

Too shy
Too proud
To speak
Too loud
Too high
Too low
Too weak
To know
Too much
To give
To want
To live
Too much
To give
To want
To feel
Alright

Feels so right
It feels so right
It feels so right

Crashing Down lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

I've never see the sky like that
I can't believe that it could do that
I closed my eyes before the sun could set
I slept and waited for my, waited for my…

I waited for my dreams to land
I waited for my dreams to touch down
I waited patiently to hear the sound
I waited for the song to get me out, to get me out of…

And I was up above
Watching myself crashing down
Yes I was up above
Watching myself crashing down

I've never seen so many lights
I've never heard so many voices
No one will tell me how I ended here
No one will tell me where, oh tell me where, oh tell me where I am
Where I am

And I was up above
Watching myself crashing down
Yes I was up above
Watching myself crashing down
Watching myself crashing down

Yes I was up above
Watching myself crashing down
There I was up above
Watching myself crashing down
Watching myself crashing down
Watching myself crashing down

Twisted Games lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

He was lost in a kerosene dream
Fuelled by the urge inside
Always been told not to play with fire
Never was one to abide

It all started way back when
When the neighbor's house burnt down
Hypnotized by the burning flame
And in that flame his love was found

Now time went on like it always does
No one knew about his love affair
Love it was it's a twisted game
Now he's gone with out a prayer

Today he learnt his lesson well
Today he burnt like you do in hell

I wish this tale could end another way
In twisted games we should never play

Now I'll tell you another tale
About a boy who loved his gun
His 45 was his one best friend
Twisted games that can't be won

Another day or so they thought
No one knew what was to come
This little town will never be the same
With a little boy who loved his gun

Today he learnt his lesson well
Today he burnt his one last shell

I wish this tale could end another way
Twisted games we should never play

The Food Song lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

Recipes are just combinations
And what are these just mere salutations
When they plead for our salvation
Are these just the lies that feed our nations 

As enemies we never learn
A shaking hand is never firm
But as the path clears we turn away from it all

All these jealousies we have earned 
Oh so shamelessly they still return 
All the outlandish lessons we have burned 
Yes and we're imprisoned by the whole thing

Who gets something really good to eat
Why do we want the world to fall at our feet
Like a child throws its food to the floor
Like an apple that is rotten to the core

As all the memories they kick in
The gravy, it is thickening
The combination is sickening
But we still press on

And as all the memories they kick
While the gravy it is thickening
And the combination is sickening
But we still press on

How to know what's in your head
How to know if you're just playing dead
But it's all gonna be that way when you say you're alone and imprisoned by your yesterdays

Oh you know what you really want 
But yet you've turned yourself into what you don't really wanna be
Here we are and we know don't have to be that way
yes u know it

If It Can't Be Found lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

Dreams
Had more than a few
Dreams
And some did come true

We just can't get enough

Now we've got all we wanted
Still we're not satisfied at all
If it can't be found
You'll never get it
If it can't be found
If it can't be found

Greed
What can we do
Greed
Can't satisfy you

We just can't get enough

Now we've got all we wanted
Still we're not satisfied at all
If it can't be found
You'll never get it
If it can't be found
If it can't be found

If You Don't Know By Now lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

There's that place
A good place to start
There's that end
That's the beginning of it all
Are you that girl
That's going to break my heart
I don't wanna be me
When disappointment makes its call

All I know is that…

If you don't know by now
All my hope it gone

You must know
Know what you want
And if you go
It don't matter who is at fault
Now I see
I'm up against the wall
Don't wanna be me
When disappointment makes its call

All I know is that…

If you don't know by now
All my hope is gone

Oh yea…it's so hard to say
Seems to be this day
Seems to be that way
I don't know what to tell you
I don't know what to tell you
It's so hard to believe that this could be the end

If you don't know by now 
All my hope is gone
If you don't know by now
Where did I go wrong

"Living In The Present Future" (2000)




Been Here Once Before lyrics - Eagle Eye Cherry

Got your back up against the wall
Now you know that after all
When you make mistakes like that
There's no more turning back
Now we've gone and we've lost our heads
You're better off just playing dead
Why you wearing that black hat
There's no point in turning back

I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before
I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before

Well all you know is you need to win
Should you go when your call comes in
Once you see all the blood that flows
I don't think you'll be winning more
Now I thought that was all in the past
And that beast would come back last
Once again we are at war
Yes I know we've been here before

I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before...that's for sure
I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before

And I don't think you'll be winning more
We've been here once before
We've been here that's for sure
I don't think you'll be winning more
We've been here once before
We've been here that's for sure

I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before...that's for sure
I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before

And I don't think you'll be winning more
We've been here once before
We've been here that's for sure
I don't think you'll be winning more
We've been here once before
We've been here that's for sure

I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before
I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before

Been here once before...
[Repeat]
