Above & Beyond feat Zoë Johnston – Alchemy

12 06 2011

All these words you speak to me
Are from a foreign land
You’re telling me that birds don’t fly
How can it be that you love her?

You don’t have to raise your voice
I still don’t understand
There’s me & you, and you & me
So how can it be that you love her?

It was alchemy
To sing to me your freedom song
To make love where there was none
Alchemy – now it’s all gone
And she is the golden one

So what are you saying?
We’ve got to dismantle it all?
Rip off the paper, smash up the walls
How can it be that you love her?

Take all of the things we so carefully made
Take all of the life that you have betrayed
How can it be that you love her?

It was alchemy
To sing to me your freedom song
To make love where there was none
Alchemy – now it’s all gone
And she is the golden one

It was alchemy
To sing to me your freedom song
To make love where there was none
Alchemy – now it’s all gone
And she is the golden one

Above & Beyond feat Zoë Johnston – Only A Few Things

12 06 2011

Only a few things will we recall
With love, with gratitude
Only a few things
On the hour in which I die

So if I cannot tell you
If the words I do not find
I want you to know
There are only a few things
That I will be carrying
In my memory when I go

Only a few things will we recall
With true happiness, with gratitude
Only a few things
I see you, I see you

You
You were the joy in my life
The one who loved my tired bones
You were the one who came to stay

So if I do not tell you
If I don’t find the words
It is not because I don’t feel it in my heart
You’re the one who loved my tired bones
You’re the one who took me home
You’re the one who loved my tired bones
You’re the one who took me home

You
You brought joy to my world
So I will tell you now
In case you don’t know
That you’ll be with me when I go

Only a few things will we recall
With love, with gratitude
Only a few things
On the hour in which I die






Above & Beyond feat Zoë Johnston – Giving It Out

12 06 2011

For so long now
For so long now I’ve been trying
It’s not working
I’ve been trying & hoping & wishing
With every part of me
It’s not working

I’ve been giving it out
But it’s not coming back to me baby
Kept thinking that somehow …
But I’m going to go now
Now I want to be free

You can call out my name
And tell me about your pain
But I’m not coming back to you baby

I’ll be giving it out
But it’s not going to come back to you
Yeah, I’ll be giving it out
But it’s not going to come back to you

There’s only so much
Only so much you can do
My heart is breaking
I kept on giving it out
Because I love you
But oh-oh this is not enough for me
Now I want to be free

You can call out my name
And tell me about your pain
But I’m not coming back to you baby

I’ll be giving it out
But it’s not going to come back to you
Yeah, I’ll be giving it out
But it’s not going to come back to you

Baby call out my name
And tell me all about your shame
But I’m not coming back to you baby

I’ll be giving it out
But it’s not going to come back to you
Yes I’ll be giving it out
But it’s not going to come back to you

Oh yeah
Giving it out
All the good stuff
Giving it out to somebody who loves me
Somebody who loves me
Somebody who loves me






Above & Beyond feat Tony McGuinness & Richard Bedford – Black Room Boy

12 06 2011

It’s the same old scene
You’ve been stuck at the screen for a lifetime
You keep your mind sharp & clean
With a fix of caffeine for the nighttime
You’ve got a page full of friends
In a world without end, DIKU?
But if push comes to shove
You could do without them if they make you

With all this poison inside
It’s much too late to decide
You’ve got your mind made up
You’ve been living a lie in your white room
For all the hours that you’ve cried
There’s a year of love they denied
So you slip through the door
And fall to the floor in your black room

You’re a black room boy

You’re feeling so weighed down
Forget the losses and burn down
Fall into city lights
Nothing else is easy

You kissed your mummy’s hand
Wearing daddy’s ring when they left you
And you buried yourself in the pain
That they couldn’t accept you
You’re in a world of your own
Got no cellular phone, they can’t track you
But the girl at the store with the sketchy rapport
She will back you

With all this poison inside
It’s much too late to decide
You’ve got your mind made up
You’ve been living a lie in your white room
For all the hours that you’ve cried
There’s a year of love they denied
So you slip through the door
And fall to the floor in your black room

You’re a black room boy

You’re feeling so weighed down
Forget the losses and burn down
Fall into city lights
Nothing else is easy

You’re feeling so weighed down
Forget the losses and burn down
Fall into city lights
Nothing else is easy

You’re a black room boy

You’re feeling so weighed down
Forget the losses and burn down
Fall into city lights
Nothing else is easy






Above & Beyond feat Richard Bedford – On My Way To Heaven

12 06 2011

You always laugh when I cry
I’m always looking to tomorrow
As you mourn the days gone by
You always tread on my toes
But my guiding hand of love
Is helping everywhere you go
I’m always wrong
You’re always right
But I can see right through the lies
To the never changing light

Rain on me
My arms are cold
I want to get home
But there’s water on the road
And if I do
You will not change
I’m just a singing satellite
In an orbit that is strange

I want to laugh
I want to smile
Get your arms inside my head
And stop me thinking for a while
I’m just a fool
Hung on a sting
But since you put these thorns around my head
You know I am a king

A king
A king of everything and nothing
I’m on my way to heaven

I’m always here
I’m in denial
When there’s nothing left between us
I will stay another while
You know you’re free
You’ve got your wings
And I am just another angel
With a voice who wants to sing
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Almighty
I’m on my way to heaven
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m on my way to heaven

I want to cry
I want to steal
A little ray of perfect sunshine
From the sun above the hill
I want to laugh
I want to smile
Get your arms inside my head
And stop me thinking for a while
I’m just a fool
Hung on a sting
But since you put these thorns around my head
You know I am a king

A king
A king of everything and nothing
I’m on my way to heaven
I’m on my way to heaven






Above & Beyond feat Zoë Johnston – Love Is Not Enough

11 06 2011

Oh I’ve had too many a good cry for you
This is my time to say goodbye to you

In my heart of hearts
I know there’s more love left for you
But love is not enough I’ve learned
To see the journey through

Oh this is not yours alone
It hurts me too
Please don’t say you don’t care
I know you do

In my heart of hearts
I know there’s more love left for you
But love is not enough I’ve learned
To see the journey through

Love is not enough for me
If it screams when you hold it
Love is not enough for me
Love is hurting if it screams
Oh if it’s screaming out loud
I’ve been screaming for love

Love is not enough

In my heart of hearts
I know there’s more love left for you
But love is not enough I’ve learned
To see the journey through

One day you will fly away from here
One day you’ll leave your hurts behind






Above & Beyond feat Richard Bedford – Thing Called Love

27 10 2010

There was a time
There was a place
But there was fear inside
A witty line to save my face
The parachute of pride
To cross the line takes a tiny step
But will this spark cause the bridge to burn
My fear entwined with my regret
I’ll be a path for safe return

So here we are
All just the same
But you will never know
My secret plan
How close we came
To share another road
And have I lost my only chance
To tell you how I feel inside
Is it just me
I’d like to know
Or are we all just a little blind?

There’s a thing called love
That we all forget
And it’s a wasted love
That we all regret
You live your life just once
So don’t forget about a thing called love
Don’t forget, forget about a thing called love

There’s a thing called love
That we all forget
And it’s a wasted love
That we all regret
You live your life just once
So don’t forget about a thing called love
Don’t forget, forget about a thing called love
