Me And Armini

Lyrics  / Me And Armini

Fireheads

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Dan Carrey

Somebody’s got a long way to go
You're not sitting by the phone no more
You're gonna throw it away
Crush it on a rock, yeah

So you can live your life

Hmm, are we going crazy

It's not fair to say we've wasted time
In my view, we just used it all up
It's not fair to say we've wasted time
In my view, we just used it all up

Hmm, what hurts you, hurts me too

I find it hard to make right
I know I’ve been a pain lately
That I failed in every test, oh I did wrong

Oh man, what are we seeing here
Life's changed all
We share a similar firehead
So there's nowhere to go

Lost change and things I braved

Somewhere we got lost and can't be seen
There's a hard wind blowing down our house
Once that's gone it can't be found

I thought you'd keep me warm
But I was shown
I was wrong

Oh man, what are we seeing here
Things' changed all

We share a similar firehead
Oh there's nowhere to go

No man, what are we seeing here
Life's changed all
We share the same firehead
Oh there's nowhere to go

Me And Armini

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Dan Carrey

I had my life
I know my place
I belong in your arms again
And I've been waiting for you
To belong to me

Some might say
I'm a silly woman to wait
But I know
You still hold my love

Some people think that I'm
Heading for a meltdown that I'm
Sitting by the phone that I'm
Worried but no

When I need your body close
I burn up in smoke
And I swore
I keep waiting

Now I see this city
Won't hold my love
For Armini
I know he's close
But I dream
I just keep waiting
I keep waiting

Some people think that I'm
Heading for a meltdown that I'm
Just sitting by the phone that I'm
Worried but no

This I know
She doesn't love you like I do
Yes it's clear
She'll never love you like me

You people say that I'm
Heading for a meltdown that I'm
Just hanging by the phone that I'm
Worried but no

I don't worry because I know
You people say
I don't worry because I know
You people say

Me and Armini
You people say
Me and Armini
Me and my Armini
You people say
Me and Armini
You people say
Me and my Armini
You people say
Me and Armini
Me and Armini
Me and Armini

Birds

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Dan Carrey

Let's stay awake and listen to the dark
Before the birds, before they all wake up
It's the ending of a play
And soon begins another
Hear, the leaves applaud the wind

See the sun come rising
And white-wings start to fly
Like strings of pearls in the firey sky
I don't wanna close my eyes
Don't wanna leave the stage now
The leaves applaud our stay

Lend me your wings and teach me how to fly
Show me, when it rains
The place you go to hide
And the curtains draw again
And bow another day ends
The leaves applaud the wind

Heard It All Before

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Dan Carrey

Night time no one hits the shore
It's me and you time
All those times we had affairs
The waves they never tell

Maybe you have found me out
Where I’ve been lately
Now your heart is broken with the one you trust
There's nothing I can say

You've heard it all before
My keys won't fit that door
You've never heard it all before
You want me here no more

And you can run away
Oh no I can't, oh no I can't
'Cause the faith that he has given is unturned

And you can run away
Oh no I can't, oh no I can't
'Cause the darkness hits the railway on that bridge

You've heard it all before
My keys won't fit that door
You've heard it all before
You want me here no more

Heard it all before
I'm losing you once more
You've heard it, yes you've heard it

Oh maybe you can let me know
Where this will take me
All the nights I longed to be like this
Where all is lost in bliss

Somewhere parked along the streets
I had my run yeah
All the money never had me bought
He had me, had me then once more

And you can run away
Oh no I can't, oh no I can't
'Cause the darkness hits the railway on that bridge

Hmm and sunshine hits the shore
And cools her rays once more
You've heard it all before
You want me here no more

A momentary lapse
A passion that would pass
You’ve heard it all before
Be it you outside my door

Ha Ha

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Dan Carrey

Anger steaming up your glasses
You've been holding parties all your life
'Cause it's long gone down
You're still hanging around
It's not over till it starts again

Ha ha ha
Hear me laughing
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
It died out long ago

Did you hear me laughing in your head
When I saw you stuck in a rut again
Oh that drink went down smoothly
Just like the one before the last you had

Questions I have answered
You are still asking yourself again
Passed out in the gutter worn out
In your head your voices aren't clearer now after all

Ha ha ha
Hear me laughing
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
It died out long ago

Anger steaming up your glasses
You've been holding parties all your life
'Cause it's long gone down
You're still hanging around
It's not over till you start again

Ha ha ha
Hear me laughing
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
You died out long ago

Big Jumps

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Dan Carrey

I walked all morning to lift my heart
'Cause the world keeps dancing with the paper man
I love you never talk in dreams
The now is here your happiness is real

Oh make some big jumps, big jumps
You afraid to break somes bones
Come on do some big jumps, big jumps
Life is yours alone
You hold your head up, your head up high
Like you think I do
Do do do do do do do do

Sometimes I feel so confused
I'm under the illusion that I have to choose
I love you always know the way
The way back home always is the same

Oh make some big jumps, big jumps
You afraid to break some bones
Come on make some big jumps, big jumps
Life is yours alone
You hold your head up, your head up high
Like you think I do
Do do do do do do do do

Tick tock this clockwork will stop
You're the key for winding up my heart
Brick brock if you don't wide me up
The sky will lie upon me like a passed out drunk
Without you I would never rise again
Without you I would never rise

Hey there sunshine lift my heart
I know life is long but it goes so fast
I love you never feeling old
You never bought the rubbish that they sold

Oh make some big jumps, big jumps
You afraid to break some bones
Come on make some big jumps, big jumps
Life is yours alone
You hold your head up, your head up high
Like you think I do
Do do do do do do do do

Oh I do some big jumps, big jumps
You afraid to break some bones
Come on do some big jumps, big jumps
Life is yours alone
You hold your head up, your head up high
Like you think I do
Do do do do do do do do...

Jungle Drum

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Dan Carrey

Hey I’m in love
My fingers keep on clicking
To the beating of my heart

Hey I can't stop my feet
Ebony and ivory
And dancing in the street

Hey it's cause of you
The world is in a crazy hazy hue

My heart is beating like a jungle drum
My heart is beating like a jungle drum
My heart is beating like a jungle drum

Man you got me burnin'
I'm the moment between the striking and the fire

Hey read my lips
'Cause all they say is kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss

No it won't ever stop
My hands are in the chair
Yes I'm in love

My heart is beating like a jungle drum
My heart is beating like a jungle drum
My heart is beating like a jungle drum
My heart is beating like a jungle drum...

Hold Heart

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Dan Carrey

Hold heart
Don't beat so loud
For me keep your calm
As he walks out on you

No tears
Don't you come out
If you blind me now
I am defeated

No lips
Don't make a sound
Don't let him hear
The break in your voice

Hand let go of this
With ease n' grace
Don't let him bleed under your nails

Oh Lord
Take off thy crown
You're my king no more
With start merciless heart

Hold heart
Don't beat so loud
For me keep your calm
As he walks out on you

No tears
Don't you come out
If you blind me now
I am defeated

Gun

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Dan Carrey

Every day I see you looking in
I'll be the smoothest thing to touch your skin
You're longing to be loved but you're alone
And your longing makes you shiver to the bone

I know your mama told you nothing of importance
No your daddy taught you nothing you could learn
You've had your sisters weighing on your pockets
And your priest he tries so hard to get you turned

Maybe you've been living lonely
While your woman has a fellow on the side
Your kids keep telling jokes that ain't that funny
And you failed in everything that comes to mind

You see I’m only here to let you know
That I love you and I’ll never let you go
So take me in the hand don't walk on by
For the life this has to offer twists inside

Now your woman has her fellow in your bed
You have to go you have to move right in
N' the ring on your finger would leave another scar
But the joke's on her she hasn't seen it all

So you shot him up close and you shot him in the face
And your woman looked on and your children they embraced
And the candle's still burning and the fire's roaring fire
You moved right in, yeah you moved right in

Stop your shaking, sweating, whining and regretting
You're making a scene that is gonna get you caught
Hey look me in the barrel and tell me that you love me
Yes this is a kiss that I swear will blow your mind

Beggar's Prayer

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Francis 'Eg' White

Mama said lift your head from the sieve of your hands
Mama say eventually this hurting will end
But the shockwaves on my bones will linger
Like the ghost of you here in my bed

When I was lost you thought me a beautiful find
Sometimes I think of you sleeping, so sleep for a while
I find myself asking who'd do this to love
And the white shouldered mountains they pointed above

Lord you just dropped me here by the side of this road
Out here's too cold and I don't want to walk it alone
I've got a bottle of your blood inside me
And an old beggar's prayer on the tip of my tongue

Mama said lift your head from the sieve of your hands
Mama say eventually this hurting will end

Dead Duck

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, Dan Carrey

Brick brock
Tick tock
Stone the dead duck
Dead

Bleeder

 / Songwriter: Emilíana Torrini, James David Catto

Lay thee down
Park your head upon my pillow
Naked trees they dress in crows
Greet the horses coming nearer
Through the rains that bring you down

You're a man humble as a hope
Lay with me
Closer to my body

When things go wrong
You find you're a bleeder

You're a man humble as a hope
Oh lay with me
Oh closer to my body

Hmm when things go wrong
You find you're a bleeder

Hmm when things go wrong
You find you're a believer
