Talking Is Hard Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Different Colors

Coming up slowly, oh, sun over the hill
Daylight still a long time coming
But I know it will
Been under their spell, oh, but we're coming awake
So we'll be rude, we'll be loud
As long as it takes

This is why, this is why,
we crank the dial to the right
This is why we're biting the bullet
We know the kids are right

Different colors
We carry each other
We're just different colors
This is why we're biting the bullet
We know the kids are right

We keep cracking the music up
Driving through our towns
But they don't wanna hear
They want us to turn it down
So come on lovers, come on haters
Tonight we raise the fire
Cause when the people get to dancing
They forget about taking sides

This is why, this is why,
we crank the dial to the right
This is why we're biting the bullet
We know the kids are right

Different colors
We carry each other
We're just different colors
This is why we're biting the bullet
We know the kids are right

(For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction)

We're coming awake, out of your spell,
As long as it takes, we're coming awake

We're coming awake, out of your spell,
As long as it takes, we're coming awake

This is why, this is why,
we crank the dial to the right
This is why we're biting the bullet
We know the kids are right

This is why, this is why, we turn it up all night
This is why we're biting the bullet
We know the kids are right

Different colors
We carry each other
We're just different colors
This is why we're biting the bullet
We know the kids are right

Different colors
We carry each other
We're just different colors
This is why we're biting the bullet
We know the kids are right

Sidekick

We walk out the cinema
about to go our separate ways and I,
I almost wave you back
when you let your hair fall in your face and
I often wonder why the things that I want are so hard to find but
I often fail to see the things I need are right here by my side.

Something in the air is giving me bad ideas
Something in the air is giving me crazy thoughts, like

...Why don't you stay at mine tonight?
(Why don't you stay at mine tonight?)
Why don't you stay with me and be my sidekick, sidekick?
Do you, do you, do you wanna be my sidekick, sidekick?

Keys left hanging in your door
A trail of shoes and winter coats and
We're kissing on that kitchen floor
Friendship up against the ropes
And don't you wonder why
the things that you want are so hard to find?
Well it just occurred to me
the one that I need could be right here by my side.

Something in the air is giving me bad ideas
Something in the air is giving me dangerous thoughts, like

Why don't you stay at mine tonight?
(Why don't you stay at mine tonight?)
Why don't you stay with me and be my sidekick, sidekick?
Do you, do you, do you wanna be my sidekick, sidekick?
Do you, do you want to be my sidekick, sidekick?
Do you, do you, do you wanna be my sidekick, sidekick?
Do you want to be my..? [x2]
WOO!
Do you want to be mine?

Something in the air is giving me bad ideas
Something in the air is telling me you could be my
Sidekick, sidekick
Do you, do you, do you wanna be my sidekick, sidekick?
Do you, do you want to be my sidekick, sidekick?
If so, come on LET'S GO!!

AY AY AY AY! [x2]

Shut Up And Dance

Oh don't you dare look back,
Just keep your eyes on me.
I said your holding back,
She said shut up and dance with me!
This woman is my destiny
She said ooh ooh
Shut up and dance with me

We were victims of the night,
The chemical, physical, kryptonite
Helpless to the bass and faded light
Oh we were born to get together,
born to get together.

She took my arm,
I don't know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said

Oh don't you dare look back,
Just keep your eyes on me.
I said your holding back,
She said shut up and dance with me!
This woman is my destiny
She said ooh ooh
Shut up and dance with me

A backless dress and some beat up sneaks,
My discotec Juliet teenage dream.
I felt it in my chest as she looked at me.
I knew we were born to be together,
Born to be together

She took my arm,
I don't know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said

Oh don't you dare look back,
Just keep your eyes on me.
I said your holding back,
She said shut up and dance with me!
This woman is my destiny
She said ooh ooh
Shut up and dance with me

(Oh, come on girl)

Deep in her eyes,
I think I see the future.
I realize this is my last chance.

She took my arm,
I don't know how it happened.
We took the floor and she said

Oh don't you dare look back,
Just keep your eyes on me.
I said your holding back,
She said shut up and dance with me!
This woman is my destiny
She said ooh ooh
Shut up and dance!

Don't you dare look back,
Just keep your eyes on me.
I said your holding back,
She said shut up and dance with me!
This woman is my destiny
She said ooh ooh
Shut up and dance with me

Ooh ooh, shut up and dance with me

Ooh ooh, shut up and dance with me

Up 2 U

You better trust that voice in your head
That your world is not what it seems
It's not the monster under your bed
It's the one with you in the sheets

It's hard enough just making money
It's hard enough just trying to feel alive
Meanwhile our fever is running
and the kings bow down to the dollar sign
(change)

Well don't ask me, don't ask me to change
(change)
It's Up 2 U

Giants think the world is theirs
Well I got a hand full of magic beans
And there's a rain that's in my head
and if you want a storm come dance with me

It's hard enough just making money
It's hard enough just trying to feel alive
Meanwhile our fever is running
and kids bow down to the bottom line
(change)

Well don't ask me, don't ask me to change
(change)
It's Up 2 U
It's Up 2 2
(ooooohhhhhh)

I can't believe my eyes
got to believe there's someway
I can't believe my eyes
got to believe there's someway
I can't believe my eyes
got to believe there's someway
I can't believe my eyes
I can't believe my eyes
Yeeeeeaaaaaaah
It's Up 2 U

Avalanche

18 thousand year old soul
Leader and shooting star
In the place she waits
But she moonlights rock and roll
Play the rain dance with her guitar
Sometimes you only get one chance

You gotta look in your eyes
I knew you pure in past life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops
Ships pass in the night
I don't want to wait 'til the next life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops

Last call and everybody's watching
The voice screams out like a storm
Sometimes the past echoes in the future
Starting long before we were born
Sometimes you only get one chance

You got a look in your eyes
I knew you pure in past life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops
Ships pass in the night
I don't want to wait 'til the next life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops

Universe won't wait for you
It's do or die, whatcha gon, gon, gonna to do

You got a look in your eyes
I knew you pure in past life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops

You got a look in your eyes
I knew you pure in past life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops
Ships pass in the night
I don't want to wait 'til the next life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops

One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops

Portugal

I know everyone you know
You know everyone I know
A venn diagram is one circle

You grow up when you're not looking
We grow up but without knowing
And all of a sudden I'm leaving

So I say I'm sorry I can't, I've got plans
Cus I watched the time slip through my hands

But you don't know now,
One day you'll learn
Growing up is a heavy leaf to turn
A heavy leaf to turn

Take me with you
Cus even on your own,
You are not alone

Take me with you
Cus even by yourself, my love
You are something else

One summer turns into ten summers
One lover turns into ten lovers
But this memory is still with me

Circles bring me in circles
Your clothes underneath my clothes
Once upon a time in Portugal

So I say I'm sorry I can't, I've got plans
Cus I watched the time slip through my hands

But you don't know now,
One day you'll learn
Growing up is a heavy leaf to turn
A heavy leaf to turn

Take me with you
Cus even on your own,
You are not alone

Take me with you
Cus even by yourself, my love
You are something else

No matter what you want,
Somebody else wants it just as bad
No matter what you got,
Somebody else has got it worse
No matter when I got to you,
Somebody else got to you first

So I say I'm sorry I can't, I've got plans
Cus I watched the time slip through my hands

But you don't know now,
One day you'll learn
Growing up is a heavy leaf to turn
A heavy leaf to turn

Take me with you
Cus even on your own,
You are not alone

Take me with you
Cus even by yourself, my love
You are something else

Down In The Dumps

I won't let you bring me back, bring me back
I won't let you bring me back, bring me back
You can throw all the fitz and the tantrums you want
But I won't let you bring, bring me back down.

Way back in '95
Scraped knees, tough love, ah yeah
Grass stains were just a sign of the times
Big kids, look at us now
Too adult to say, "big whoop"
Let any old bummer get under my hide

But ooh I'm gonna take control...

I won't let you bring me back,
Bring me back down in the dumps!
I won't let you bring me back,
Bring me back down in the dumps!

So I'll walk that tightrope wire
But what am I really made of? yeah
Scared of heights like I'm scared of falling in love

But ooh I'm gonna take control...

I won't let you bring me back,
Bring me back down in the dumps!
I won't let you bring me back,
Bring me back down in the dumps!
You can throw all the fitz and the tantrums you want
But I won't let you bring, bring me back down.

So think back to '95
And reach arms length deep ah yeah
Cause they'll try to pierce your childhood hide

But ooh I'm gonna take control...

Work This Body

It was a strange place and a tender age; I was just a babe in school
Saw them roll their eyes at me every time that I thought that I was cool
Well uh god knows I was no chosen one that just wasn't my prime
Yeah it's just matter of time, honey, it's just a matter of time

And I will work this body I will burn this flame
Oh in the dead of night, and in the pouring rain
Yeah, I'm a work-a-holic and I swear, I swear
Yeah, and one day I will beat you fair and square

Show me what you got
Work this body on the floor
Just who do you think you are
C'mon meet me on the court

Que ferais-tu?
Putain, je ne sais pas!

It ain't no matter of "if", honey, it's just a matter of "when"
Ah, some sunday when it's my face in the newspaper again
All the rag magazines, black limousines, they'll be getting in line
Yeah it's just a matter of time, honey, it's just a matter of time

And I will work this body I will burn this flame
Oh in the dead of night, and in the pouring rain
Yeah, I'm a work-a-holic and I swear, I swear
Yeah, and one day I will beat you fair and square

Show me what you got
Work this body on the floor
Just who do you think you are
C'mon meet me on the court

Que ferais-tu?
Putain, je ne sais pas!
Ne vien pas plurer...
Vers moi...

Spend Your $$$

The TV says Mother is hurting
That the clock reads quarter to twelve
So I shop my face off at Urban
just trying to look a little more like myself

What do you spend your money on?
I hope it's something of value
What do you spend your money on?

The first time to your apartment
I was peeking in between my fingers
Oh the things I hoped we had in common
Wishful thinker

What do you spend your money on?
I hope it's something of value
Are you the driver or is someone driving you?
What do you spend your, spend your
What do you spend your money on?

You take me up to the party
and we cross right over the barrier
I'm not sure what's more disarming
than fake breasts and miniature terriers

What do you spend your money on?

We Are The Kids

Don't wanna wait till the mornin'
Don't wanna wait till the mornin' comes
You know the bigger picture changes when your colors run

I got my hand in my pocket
And there's a diamond at my finger tips
Don't wanna wait till mornin' you and I live for this

I rip holes in my shirt
There's mud on my shoes, there's sun on my skin
I am brand new
We shout at the cops, we howl at the moon
Just a matter of time
Don't you get it

We are the kids that you never can kill,
you never can kill, you never can kill
We say that we won't but you know that we will,
you know that we will keep on

Don't wanna wait fo permission
We got our own fresh set of rules
We take that old school fashion
Shape it into something new

You got your hand in my pocket
You like to dance with my finger tips
Don't gotta wait for permission
You and I we live for this
You know we live for this

We are the kids that you never can kill,
you never can kill, you never can kill
We say that we won't but you know that we will,
you know that we will keep on

I said, we are the kids that you never can kill,
you never can kill, you never can kill
We say that we won't but you know that we will,
you know that we will keep on

Lost boys, lost girls, hot tires, wild animals
We won't live forever
Hand over the future I rip holes in my shirt
There's mud on my shoes, there's sun on my skin
I am brand new
We shout at the cops, we howl at the moon
Just a matter of time
Don't you get it

We are the kids that you never can kill,
you never can kill, you never can kill
We say that we won't but you know that we will,
you know that we will keep on

I said
We are the kids that you never can kill,
you never can kill, you never can kill
We say that we won't but you know that we will,
you know that we will keep on

Come on, hand over the future
Lost boys, lost girls don't hand over the future, hand over the future

Come Under The Covers

Tiptoe
Down the hall from where you live
These floors are talkitive
But it's alright, it's alright

So quiet
A little house out in the woods
And it would feel so good
If you would stay, if you would stay

Summer is over
And I wanna leave you satisfied
Summer is over
And I can feel the cold changing us inside
Come under the cover
'cause I wanna leave you satisfied tonight

In the low light
Two white shadows become one
Come on, put your moon in my sun
And set me on fire, set me on fire

Summer is over
And I wanna leave you satisfied
Summer is over
And I can feel the cold changing us inside
Come under the cover
'cause I wanna leave you satisfied tonight

Sometime
It's like you grew up down the street
It's such a mystery
The way you know me, the way you know me

Summer is over
And I wanna leave you satisfied
Summer is over
And I can feel the cold changing us inside
Come under the cover
'cause I wanna leave you satisfied tonight
Summer is over
Summer is over
Summer is over

Aquaman

The real life love is under the mirror of the surface
So cut my cord I want to know how deep we can take it
See the thing you've been chasing honey
You'll never find it wearin' a life vest
You gotta risk your neck know in your heart it will be worth it

So here we go head first
No regards and no rules
We can stay as long as we want
Slow dancing in the darkness
And all I know is I wanna be here with you from now on

It's been my fashion to keep my head dry and get my feet wet
Step by step I've been letting you lead me to the deep end
Well I learned my lesson, honey
Just when you think you're all adult swim
Is precisely when somebody shows you to the ocean

So here we go head first
And no regrets and no rules
We can stay as long as we want
Slow dancing in the darkness
And all I know is I wanna be here with you from now on

Just keep holding on, holding on to me
Under, under the top of, the surface of the sea
Just keep holding on, holding on to me
Just keep holding on, holding on to me

Oh here we go head first
And no regrets and no rules
We can stay as long as we want
Slow dancing in the darkness
And all I know is I wanna be here with you from now on

Head first into the water
And so it hits me
I guess we couldn't breathe all along
One breath after another
And all I know is I wanna be here with you from now on
And all I know is I wanna be here with you from now on
And all I know is I wanna be here with you from now on
