1000 Forms Of Fear Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Chandelier

Party girls don't get hurt
Can't feel anything, when will I learn
I push it down, push it down

I'm the one "for a good time call"
Phone's blowin' up, they're ringin' my doorbell
I feel the love, feel the love

1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink

Throw em back, till I lose count

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

And I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

Sun is up, I'm a mess
Gotta get out now, gotta run from this
Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink

Throw em back till I lose count

I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

And I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

Big Girls Cry

Tough girl in the fast lane
No time for love
No time for hate
No drama
No time for games
Tough girl whose soul aches

I come home
On my own
Check my phone
Nothing, though
Act busy
Order in
Pay TV
It's agony

I may cry ruining my make up
Wash away all things you've taken
I don't care if I don't look pretty
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their heart is breaking

Tough girl
I'm in pain
It's lonely at the top
Block outs and airplanes
I still pour you a glass of champagne
Tough girl whose soul aches

I come home
On my own
Check my phone
Nothing, though
Act busy
Order in
Pay TV
It's agony

I may cry ruining my make up
Wash away all the things you've taken
And I don't care if I don't look pretty
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking

I wake up I wake up I wake up
I wake up I wake up I wake up...alone

I may cry ruining my make up
Wash away all the things you've taken
And I don't care if I don't look pretty
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their hearts are breaking
Big girls cry when their heart is breaking

Burn The Pages

Your dark way like a story class
Rolling out with raids that are desperate to be let out
And I know it's a heavy look carrying out these scissors on
Carrying out these scissors on
No worry make the world go round
The twisted act like a slimmer
Die by the juicer, just took his t-shirt
And I know that's the one we talk
Took him out his fragrance
But he's just me and he just wants to be up front
So don't worry don't worry
I'm here by your side
By your side, by your side
We're letting go tonight

Yesterday's gonna be okay
Paste your brows to harpoon
Burning pages let them go
Yesterday's gonna on Saturday
Place your bets into harpoon
Burning pages let them go

I stand up from the black
Want news, old news
While whistling from the undertalk
Island world, we walk in the crowd of the dark night skies
Swallow me peacefully, follow my heart back inside
So don't worry don't worry
I'm here by your side
By your side, by your side
We're letting go tonight

Yesterday's gonna be okay
Paste your brows to harpoon
Burning pages let them go
Yesterday's gonna on Saturday
Place your bets into harpoon
Burning pages let them go

Don't worry don't worry
I'm here by your side
By your side, by your side
We're letting go tonight

Yesterday's gonna be okay
Paste your brows to harpoon
Burning pages let them go
Yesterday's gonna on Saturday
Place your bets into harpoon
Burning pages let them go

Eye Of The Needle

Take me down
I'm feeling now
And if I move on
I admit you're gone
And I ain't ready
But I'll hold steady
Yeah I'll hold you
In my arms, in my arms
In my arms

And you're locked inside my heart
And your melody's an art
And I won't let the terror in I'm stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

Step and repeat
Tears fall to the beat
Smile through the pain
Feel the acid rain
And I ain't ready
But I'll hold steady
Yeah I'll hold you
In my arms, in my arms
In my arms

And you're locked inside my heart
And your melody's an art
And I won't let the terror in I'm stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

My bag's heavy
Been filled by me
They weigh me down
Carry them round
It's all mine, all mine
Oh I am blinded
By the eye of the needle

And you're locked inside my heart
And your melody's an art
And I won't let the terror in I'm stealing time
Through the eye of the needle
Eye of the needle
And you're locked inside my heart
And your melody's an art
And I won't let the terror in I'm stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

Hostage

You bring me to life
And you shoot me out
You keep me silence
When I shoot you out
You make me cry when you make me crumb
You are the gap in my monologue

It all begins with one kiss
Find out I take my other love
Put me in cuffs
Lock me up
Find out I take my other love
What's killing wrath
Wanna give it out
The secret of a love keeps screaming a ghost
Don't lock me up
Don't you wanna feel loved
Find out I take my other love

When you left me out
And I catch the sun
You gave me a taste then you were the one
But you're always leaving
Again I'm alone
This secret burns but I'm in prison

It all begins with one kiss
Find out I take my other love
Put me in cuffs
Lock me up
Find out I take my other love
What's killing wrath
Wanna give it out
The secret of a love keeps screaming a ghost
Don't lock me up
Don't you wanna feel loved
Find out I take my other love

Once seen
A great effortless love
Ooh those who have heard
Under the covers
The wild
You break my heart
I'm a criminal, and he's Paul

It all begins with one kiss
Find out I take my other love
Put me in cuffs
Lock me up
Find out I take my other love
What's killing wrath
Wanna give it out
The secret of a love keeps screaming a ghost
Don't lock me up
Don't you wanna feel loved
Find out I take my other love

It all begins with one kiss
Find out I take my other love
Put me in cuffs
Lock me up
Find out I take my other love
What's killing wrath
Wanna give it out
The secret of a love keeps screaming a ghost
Don't lock me up
Don't you wanna feel loved
Find out I take my other love

Straight For The Knife

Put on my best dress
I wanted to impress
I put on a knicker pull
Put a bow in my head
We're pretty in our way
Open you my ticket oh
Don't know if you already care
But I'm strapped to my chair
And it ain't cause you're pretty
You were charming until
You saw your change to kill
Your chance to make a story

You went straight for the knife
And I'm prepared to die
You play it chimes
Look me straight in the eye
Turn the gas on high
Put the flame alive
You wonder why I'm scared of fall
You wonder why you make girls cry

My mascara a mess
Harsh words for your princess
Boy you and your promises
And if you where's the love
You scored an epic mess
And I'm just a memory

You went straight for the knife
And I'm prepared to die
You play it chimes
Look me straight in the eye
Turn the gas on high
Put the flame alive
You wonder why I'm scared of fall
You wonder why you make girls cry

Boy you're drowning again
I'm hungry for your better loving
But will someone find me swinging round after
I'm hanging on your every word

You went straight for the knife
And I'm prepared to die
You play it chimes
Look me straight in the eye
Turn the gas on high
Put the flame alive
You wonder why I'm scared of fall
You wonder why you make girls cry

Fair Game

You terrify me
Cause you're a man- you're not a boy
You've got some power
And I can't treat you like a toy
The road less...Traveled by a little girl
You disregard the mess
While I try to control the world
Don't leave me
Stay here and frighten me
Don't leave me
Come now enlighten me
Give me all you got
Give me your wallet and your watch
Give me your first born
Give me the rainbow and the-
So go on and challenge me
Take the reigns and the seat
Watch me squirm baby
But you are just what I need
And I've never played a fair game
I've always had the upper hand
But what good is intellect and nerve if
I can't respect any man
Yeah I want to play a fair game
Yeah I want to play a fair game

You terrify me
We've still not kissed
And yet I've cried
You got too close in
I pushed and pushed
Opened your bites
So I could run run
And then I did betray the dust
You saw those teeth marks
They weren't all yours
You had been trusted to a history
That had not worked for me
Into a history from which I could not face
So go on and shake me
Shake until I give it up
When I am in doubt baby
I know that we could make some love

So go on challenge me
Take the reigns and the seat
Watch me squirm baby
But you're just what I need
And I've never played a fair game
I've always had the upper hand
But what good is intellect and nerve if
I can't respect any man
Yeah I want to play a fair game
Yeah I want to play a fair game
And I never played a fair game
I've always had the upper hand
But what good is intellect and nerve if
I can't respect any man
Yeah I want to play a fair game
Yeah I want to play a fair game

I've always had the upper hand
But what good is intellect and nerve if
I can't respect any man
I want to play a fair game
Oh, I want to play a fair game
I've always had the upper hand
What good is intellect and nerve if
I can't respect any man
I want to play a fair game

Elastic Heart

And another one bites the dust
Oh why can I not conquer love
And I might have thought that we were one
Wanted to fight this war without weapons

And I wanted it, I wanted it bad
But there were so many red flags
Now another one bites the dust
Yeah let's be clear, I'll trust no one

You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace

I've got thick skin and an elastic heart,
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubberband until you pull too hard,
I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart
Cause I've got an elastic heart

I've got an elastic heart
Yeah I've got an elastic heart

And I will stay up through the night
Let's be clear, won't close my eyes
And I know that I can survive
I'll walk through fire to save my life

And I want it, I want my life so bad
I'm doing everything I can
Then another one bites the dust
It's hard to lose a chosen one

You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace

I've got thick skin and an elastic heart,
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubberband until you pull too hard,
I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart
Cause I've got an elastic heart
[x3]

I've got an elastic heart

Free The Animal

I love you so
When I throw you on the floor
The fresher viewers when I put my hands through you
I squeeze you tight until you take your last breath
Lovin' you to death, lovin' you to death
The pressure's rising and I won't make it through the night
There's something more I else than the assassin tonight
Just blow me up, or run me down
Or cut my throat
And when it's time for you to come

You'll have to make me
Show me I got them all
And when you let me
Kill me like an animal
You try to take me
Your thing with the face rolled
You'll have to bend me
Free the animal
Free the animal

Free the animal

I love you so
I'm putting in quizzing
You take your chances when you kiss the hitman
The anamos inside of this infanity
No new today, no new today
The pressure's rising and I won't make it through tonight
There's something more I else than the assassin tonight
Just blow me up, I'll run you down
I'll cut my rope
And when it's time for you to come

You'll have to make me
Show me I got them all
And when you let me
Tell me what I don't know
You try to take me
Your thing with the face rolled
You'll have to bend me
Free the animal
Free the animal

You'll have to make me
Show me I got them all
And when you let me
Tell me what I don't know
You try to take me
Your thing with the face rolled
You'll have to bend me
Free the animal
Free the animal

Mother me want, and me love
What you do to me
New different brand
I depart, I say brand
Kill me with your loving
Kill me with your loving
Entice you, induce you
Like sugar and spice
I'll do what you want me to be
I'm the beast
I kill you with my loving
I kill you with my loving
Mother me want, and me love
What you do to me
New different brand
I depart, I say brand
Kill me with your loving
Kill me with your loving
Entice you, induce you
Like sugar and spice
I'll do what you want me to be
I'm the beast
I kill you with my loving
I kill you with my loving

You'll have to make me
Show me I got them all
And when you let me
Tell me what I don't know
You try to take me
Your thing with the face rolled
You'll have to bend me
Free the animal
Free the animal

You'll have to make me
Show me I got them all
And when you let me
Tell me what I don't know
You try to take me
Your thing with the face rolled
You'll have to bend me
Free the animal
Free the animal

Fire Meet Gasoline

It's dangerous to fall in love behind
Wanna burn with you tonight
Your heart and me
There's two of us
We're certain with desire
The pleasure is pain and fire, burning
So come on now
I'll take you one
Take you one, hey
Hate for love, in for us, wild
To come, does it come a little closer?
So come on now
Strike the match
Strike the match now
A perfect match
Perfect somehow
I will never want another
Calling on, I'll blow who's fast

Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
I'm burning alive
I can barely breath
And you feel love for me
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
I got on a knee
When you came back for me
Fire meet gasoline
I'm burning alive
I can barely breath
And you feel love for me
Fire meet gasoline
Burning tonight

And we will rise
Rise more dark now than the sky
I'll meet on the drive
Take on fire
So come on now
Strike the match
Strike the match now
A perfect match
Perfect somehow
I will never want another
Calling on, I'll blow who's fast

Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
I'm burning alive
I can barely breath
And you feel love for me
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
I got on a knee
When you came back for me
Fire meet gasoline
I'm burning alive
I can barely breath
And you feel love for me
Fire meet gasoline
Burning tonight

But it's about best, certainly
But I want what I want, and I gotta get it
When the fire dies
Dark in the skies
Hot ash, and max on the smoke till love
But it's about best, certainly
But I want what I want, and I gotta get it
When the fire dies
Dark in the skies
Hot ash, and max on the smoke till love

Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
I'm burning alive
I can barely breath
And you feel love for me
Fire meet gasoline
Fire meet gasoline
I got on a knee
When you came back for me
Fire meet gasoline
I'm burning alive
I can barely breath
And you feel love for me
Fire meet gasoline
Burning tonight

Burn wide tonight
Burn wide tonight
Burn wide tonight
Eh eh

Cellophane

Look at me I'm such a basket case
To live and do you're wrapped instead of fight
Waiting in on your doorstep, out your day
To deliver me a basket filled with pain
Patience is your virtue, sane of mind
I'd have fallen to the cracks without your love tonight
I'm your ground hole, and I'm skating on thin ice
When you see me at your feet, carry me inside
Eh eh eh eh
Eh eh eh eh

How can you see I'm wrapped in cellophane?
Watch the blame I'm through night
Electricity flies high up bright
Can't hide the pain
Can't hide the pain
When you're wrapped in cellophane

Look at me I'm such a basket case
While I fall apart, you hide on my pillows again
And all the things I need to hear you say
Your watch is on my thoughts
Can't buy back on the drive
Eh eh eh eh
Eh eh eh eh

How can you see I'm wrapped in cellophane?
Watch the blame I'm through night
Electricity flies high up bright
Can't hide the pain
Can't hide the pain
When you're wrapped in cellophane

Oooooh

How can you see I'm wrapped in cellophane?
Watch the blame I'm through night
Electricity flies high up bright
Can't hide the pain
Can't hide the pain
When you're wrapped in cellophane

Dressed In Black

I had given up
I didn't know who to trust
Oh oh
So I designed a shell
Kept me from heaven and hell
Oh oh
Yeah I have hit a low
Was all I let myself know, yeah
Yeah I had locked my heart
I was imprisoned by God

You found me dressed in black
Hiding where I put the past
Life would build up my heart, too busy
You took my hand in yours
You started breaking down my walls
And you covered my heart in kisses
I thought like cats mean by
Lose my tears and all my pride
Like you've broken my heart, must spill it
And then you cross my back
You broke my feet repeatedly
And you covered my heart in kisses

I was down for the count
Cause I was down, I was out
Oh oh
And I had lost it all
Cause I was scared I was doomed
And I took to the night
I'd given into the fight
Oh oh
And I slipped for the dawn
Yeah I felt like a dawn

You found me dressed in black
Hiding where I put the past
Life would build up my heart, too busy
You took my hand in yours
You started breaking down my walls
And you covered my heart in kisses
I thought like cats mean by
Lose my tears and all my pride
Like you've broken my heart, must spill it
And then you cross my back
You broke my feet repeatedly
And you covered my heart in kisses

I was hopeless
And more, getting war in the door from me
Yeah I was hiding
And you let the light in and now I see
And to dwell for the wound
Do what they couldn't seem to
You set them free
Like a bottle of mist
And a child with a knife, with a mind of a key

You found me dressed in black
Hiding where I put the past
Life would build up my heart, too busy
You took my hand in yours
You started breaking all my walls
And you covered my heart in kisses
I thought like cats mean by
Lose my tears and all my pride
Like you've broken my heart, must spill it
And then you cross my back
You broke my feet repeatedly
