Lyrics - Holiday In Spain

Holiday In Spain cover

holiday in spain

she took a holiday in spain
got her numbers changed for good
sewed her wings to an idiot saint
howling in the wood

got a call from mister grey
if i need a place to run
now they've pulled the heavens down
and locked away the sun

eat the flowers

fly away bird
far far away
when the waters high
come play the game again
look out your window
at the falling stars
is that love
that calls your true name again

we'll eat the flowers
then we'll be on our own
and in the morning
we will be new again

and regardless of what is right
crawl on four hands
between darkness and light
look out your window
one more time
walk to the altar
say you'll be mine

we'll eat the flowers
then we'll be on our own
and in the morning
we will be new again

radium

you came in the winter
just to watch my disbelief
saying 'what is wrong with me?
we get tired of being so limitless and free
like a rainbow on tv'

back from deep freeze
with your bright and eerie grace
you got some acres on the sun
when the airplanes fly you fall into a trance
you should take your radium

you were in blue
you were mothering the void
on the way back from a fair
holidays but every planet looks the same
as above then so below

life's dangerous

how sorrow met you
and you could not be bold
with a mind so furious
and a wire so old

we're strangers here
and this is a reward
life's dangerous
now could we ask for more

why do you run
before we come true
before we come like angels
and sit on your moon

are you still smiling
we hardly know
keep these eyes here
whenever we go

i'm strange again
and this is my reward
life's dangerous
now could i ask for more

we're strange again
this is our reward
life's dangerous
now could we ask for more

out to sea

on a may day with a crimson bouquet
how you walk with a crooked mouth
past the blue birds come to scream in the rain
with your cousins from the mystic south
you got triplets and architects swaying from your heart
and a wooden horses laugh
pantomime sticky valentine you're so sick of it all
and the rent just rose

wash it all out to sea
wash it all out to sea

on a good day i'll be wearing your smile
i'll be pushing my weight around
i'll be laughing with all your friends
i'll be telling them again how it didn't work out
there'll be truces there'll be trials
there'll be cries from a room and your mothers real distress
when she looks at you and sees the truth
you know nothing of her pain and it all turns out the same

take it all out to sea
take it all out to sea

brand new day

we'll dream in the fountains some other day
don't get sentimental if you can't pay
me i got the money but i can't stay
gotta go downtown and buy a brand new day

tell
tell maria that i'm gone
that i'm gone
that a voice up there keeps leading me on
that it's crying all night long

we'll dream in the fountains some other day
don't get sentimental less you can pay
me i got the money now i can't stay
gotta go downtown and buy a brand new day

tell
tell the party that i'm gone
that i'm gone
that i've got everything that money can't buy
that i'm dancing down below

we'll dream in the fountains some other day
don't get sentimental unless you can pay
me i got the money but i can't stay
i gotta go downtown and buy me a brand new day

eve of destruction

at the end of the chemical chain
they're keeping all the futures that remain
a prisoner in every cell
and no water in the deepest well

eve of destruction here she comes
now that my fingers are all thumbs
she'll lock me away in the tower
and crush all my years into just one hour

though she was once in elegance wed
bitter were the tears she shed

i'll say goodbye to pleasure and to pain
though i'm falling in love again
when it comes for summer we'll sing
as the shadows fall across everything

eve of destruction yes she came
burning every eyelash every name
folded all the shadows up again
said 'i was born and free i am'

though she was once in elegance wed
bitter were the tears she shed

alien dance

the real you

all the phones in the street were ringing
when i met the real you
i had to look closely
the way the satellites do

i shouldn't love you but i do
you left such a simple clue
a long time ago

i had a little place on earth
down by the riverside
though things have changed inside
i think of it sometimes

i shouldn't know you but i do
i was searching for the light
in a long darkened room

a chalk bird in a honey sky
when i met the real you
there is no place i can hide
now i know the reason why

i shouldn't love you but i do
you left such a simple clue
a long time ago

half past the hour

all these days we're just moving through
pack our seasons carefully
all the little things in boxes
take them down to the fair
gravity's ribbons in the air

and i see you've been hard on yourself
when the sun shines everywhere
and the town folk they're talking all the time
but you just sit there with your alien mind
and it's half past the hour

your truth is just someone elses guess
when there's flowers everywhere
your boys so old for his age
with a world to rearrange

when you just don't get time in your shell
on the line with mr grey
all this time i've been being someone else
and you come up singing saying 'here i am'
and it's half past the hour
