What to Do With Daylight

    • I've been staring at the sky tonight
      Marvelling and passing time
      Wondering what to do with daylight
      Until I can make you mine
      You are the one I want, you are the one I want

      I've been thinking of changing my mind
      It never stays the same for long
      But of all the things I know for sure
      You're the only certain one
      You are the one I want, you are the one I want

      I've been counting up all my wrongs
      One sorry for each star
      See I'd apologise my way to you
      If the heavens stretched that far
      You are the one I want, you are the one I want

      [Chorus]
      I won't find what I am looking for
      If I only "see" by keeping score
      'Cos I know now you are so much more than arithmetic

      'Cos if I add, if I subtract
      If I give it all, try to take some back
      I've forgotten the freedom that comes from the fact
      That you are the sum
      So you are the one
      I want

      When the years are showing on my face
      And my strongest days are gone
      When my heart and flesh depart this place
      From a life that sung your song

      You'll still be the one I want

      You'll still be the one I want

      You'll still be the one I want

      You'll still be the one I want

    • Didn't I tell you everything's fine?
      If there's a good and bad we're somewhere in between
      Often I feel like we're all navigating blind
      Could we get a change of pace to set the scene?

      We could stay another day in this confusion
      Let it permeate us 'til we can't move on

      [Chorus:]
      But while we're waiting we could try saving the world
      Or are we storing that up for a rainy day?
      I'm anticipating the time when it'll be my turn
      It could be fun to try
      I think that I'll save the world as a fun afternoon activity

      Seventy thousand things to ponder today
      Most significant are bottom of the list
      Forty five million recipes and ways
      To exaggerate and compound the stress

      We could stay another day in this apathy
      Let it permeate us 'til we're numb through

      [Chorus]

      Oh...

      [Chorus x2]

    • I'm not hanging on your every word
      I'm thriving on my self-sufficiency
      I'm not listening to the things I've heard
      About me and you

      People think there must be something to the way
      I talk about you every chance I get
      But if I think about you night and day
      Doesn't mean I'm ready yet

      Maybe I am knee-deep in denial
      Or maybe I'm just trying to move on
      Maybe I should keep away awhile
      But if distance is right I'd rather be wrong

      [Chorus:]
      'Cause I love the way you're smiling at me
      When you know it's true
      I'm still in love with you
      And I love the way you're really trying
      Not to let me see
      You're still in love with me too

      I am way too proud to verbalize my feelings
      And you are way too mean if you just let this brew
      It's a complicated hand that you've been dealing
      Time to win me over: fold and make your move

      Smooth some calm over this situation
      I can't get past the way I feel for you
      It's the little things that make this worth the effort
      It's the small, little, insignificant things you do

      That make me love the way you're glancing, hoping
      When you know it's true
      I'm still in love with you
      And I love that I am barely coping
      When you let me see
      You're still in love with me too

      In love, still in love with
      In love, still in love with
      In love, still in love with you

    • I have this sinking feeling
      Something's weighing me down
      I am completely saturated
      The waves are crashing closer
      My feet already drowned
      Doing the thing I said I hated

      They've been swimming in the wrong water
      Now they're pulling me down
      But I am clinging to you, never letting go
      'Cos I know that you'll lift me out

      [Chorus]
      Have your way here
      Keep me afloat 'cos I know I'll sink without you
      Take this ocean of pain that is mine
      Throw me a lifeline

      Wake up feeling convicted
      I know something's not right
      Re-acquaint my knees with the carpet
      I have to get this out
      'Cos it's obstructing you and I
      Dry up the seas that keep us parted

      'Cos they've been swimming in the wrong waters
      And now they're pulling me down
      But I am clinging to you, never letting go
      'Cos I know that you are gonna pull me out

      [Chorus]

      They've been swimming in the wrong waters
      And now they're pulling me down
      But I am clinging to you, never letting go
      'Cos I know, 'cos I know

    • Don't you say it's too early
      Baby I don't wanna waste the day
      When we've everything on our side
      And nothing in our way

      We can do what we wanna
      'Cos today the world is ours
      Nothing gray, just real time and colour
      In which to whittle away the hours

      We could speak 'til nothing's left unspoken
      We could drive 'til we've run out of road
      We could drink 'til we've emptied the ocean
      But I'd be happy here
      Happy just to hold you

      [Chorus]
      'Til the suns and planets disappear
      I could stay in your arms all year
      Even if that means infinity through
      If being producttive is being with you
      Then baby I don't want to waste another day

      I'll shout aloud what I'm feeling
      Let my tongue be still no more
      Now I know that it's the real thing
      Just try and keep me quiet about it
      Oh...

      'Cos we could stare until we both are blinded
      We could fall 'til gravity gets tired
      We could lose our love just to re-find it
      But I'm just happy here
      Happy staying beside you

    • The sky opens up over me and you
      And you don't seem to mind that we're soaked through
      You kiss me in the rain, I forget what I'm moaning about
      And I know I wouldn't be the same without you

      [Chorus]
      I wouldn't be the same without you
      I wouldn't be the same without you

      I laugh at my own jokes and what I deem to be clever wit
      And you don't seem to mind that I'm so stupid
      You kiss me once again, I forget what I'm babbling about
      And I know I wouldn't be the same without you

      [Chorus]

      I couldn't replicate your touch or love anyone again this much
      But I wouldn't be the same without you

      I wouldn't be the same
      I wouldn't be the same
      I wouldn't be the same without you
      Without you
      Without you
      Without you

    • I'm having trouble remembering where the lines cross your face
      Your smile is fading from memory
      Won't you hurry back and fill that space again?

      I'm waiting, watching the water, quietly willing the phone to ring
      I suspect this healthy silence
      Will continue a few days yet, a few days yet

      [Chorus]
      I miss you, I miss you
      I'm over now, I'm through
      I miss you

      I'm hanging here just reminiscing
      About all the things you said to me
      Hoping you plan on returning to interrupt my reverie

      [Chorus]

      You're sweet, sweeter than honey tea
      You're precious and worth more than gold to me
      I know I acted selfishly
      Come on home

      I'll beg and plead if you need me to
      I'm head over heels over feet for you
      Gonna have you wed by the end of this tune
      Well, I hope...

      I miss you, I miss you
      Don't say we're done
      We ain't through

    • Walk along here,feel you move somewhere in front of me
      I can't place you with these eyes for the doubt I can't see

      How could someone so beautiful
      Feel something for me?
      Hold me and love me and touch me again
      And show me why i believe

      [Chorus]
      That the first time I see yuor face
      Everything else around me will fade to the background
      And I'll be struck full by the truth in your gaze
      As you work and indelible change in me

      All I have and all I am and all I think and do
      Can find it's purpose and meaning and life only in you

      How could someone so beautiful
      Feel something for me?
      Won't you hold me and love me and touch me again
      And show me why I believe

      [Chorus x2]

      An indelible change in me

    • Take my shoulder back now
      Your head's too heavy for me
      Please don't come around here no more
      'Cos I asked you to stop
      And you wouldn't

      [Chorus]
      I would give anything to make you better
      I would give anything to point you to free
      I would give anything to help you realise

      I loved you 'til it killed me
      So my logic wouldn't hurt you
      I know you might blame me anyway
      Well I'm sorry, I'm so sorry

      [Chorus]

      You're not helping yourself to me

      I've tried all the things they told me
      Trying to close up the wounds left open by you
      And if I seem doubtful, distrusting.....I am
      You said you wouldn't do it agin
      You said you wouldn't do it again

      [Chorus]

      You're not helping yourself
      You're not helping yourself by hurting me

      Anything just to try and help you see
      You ain't helping yourself by hurting me
      Time to let you go, time for you to see
      You ain't helping yourself by hurting me

    • Middle of nowhere
      Finally you can breathe
      Nobody knows your name
      It's easier

      Shut your eyes tightly
      Clench your fists 'til they almost bleed
      Cautiously, lightly
      Gently expose what's underneath

      And all you feel now
      Is the scarlet in the day
      Even if it's real
      You can't stay...

      [Chorus]
      So there you go
      You're gone for good
      There you go
      You're gone for good

      Your mind is swollen
      From months of thought without release
      They've taken their toll on you
      And this very moment
      Of timid and fragile honesty
      Is precious and rare and fleeting

      And all you feel now
      Is the scarlet in the day
      And even if it's real
      You can't stay...

    • I wanna get your words stuck in my head
      I wanna touch your soul with mine
      I want to always be, be by your lead
      Always

      I wanna know that you hung the stars in the sky
      So on lonely nights I would know your presence
      I wanna feel your love under my skin, down through my bones

      [Chorus:]
      Your love endures forever
      Your love changes me
      Your love makes me whole, makes me better
      Your love endures

      I wanna feel the wind and know that you're near me
      And see in the seasons your mystery
      I wanna feel your love flow through my veins
      Pound through my heart

      [Chorus:]
      Your love endures forever
      Your love changes me
      Your love makes me whole, makes me better

      I want to know how this could be
      Yet your love remains a mystery
      That's woven all the way
      That's woven all the way
      That's woven all the way through me

      [Chorus:]
      Your love endures forever
      Your love changes me
      Your love makes me whole, makes me better
      Your love endures
