Stop, look, lizard!

I think time has gone the distance I mean it's really pulled the stops out I've got ingredients in the kitchen But we could eat across town And I know I've got so many things to do Before this week goes out of frame But I can't help but smile And put it off for a bit again 'Cause there's brightness in the night time There's fireworks in my heart And I looked up at the sky and I Looked up at the stars And I think they said I'm doing ok I mean I'm trying quite hard And if this meal's not too late Maybe we could reach the stars And I said 'Woah What you gonna do Woah What you got to lose?' Now there's no barricades in sight There's no fencing in my head We could walk to the moon tonight Take the shortcut by the stairs And I'll uplift ya 'Cause you can't live a life without having the pictures To prove that the times existed I just threw down the camera and kissed ya 'Cause it's not what my life seems to be But more what it might mean to me and then I looked up at the stars gleaming They were just setting the scenery And I think they said I'm doing ok I mean I'm trying quite hard And if this meals not too late Maybe we could reach the stars And I said 'Woah What you gonna do Woah What you got to lose?'

Woke up 02:54
It's a new year in the afternoon And there's glasses on the table You didn't miss the party but you kinda missed the point And I think we're gonna be alright It was written on the fridge magnets It had a grasp of phrase you wouldn't expect from a container of milk And I aint got the answers I've only almost got the questions And the in between is something I've got to find But I managed to get some patience I should do I waited for it for ages Now I'll arrange the pages to start from one The rest I can see in time I feel like I just woke up I feel like I just woke up And time it waits for no man Try telling that to the snowman Who packed his bags and headed off to the frozen section But instead of always trying to cheat it Gotta hold your hands up and greet it As it flows out of Greenwich And up the Jubilee line 'Cause I've got a fresh perspective That I can't leave undetected It's like I've forgotten what I've lost And suddenly I don't mind So if You're cold and in the corner My coat is yours to warm ya I haven't got a watch but for you I've got the time I feel like I just woke up I feel like I just woke up So hold my hand, tightly And If I close my eyes, remind me to Keep them wide Not just let days go by I feel like I just woke up I feel like I just woke up

Falling down 03:15
So hold me up Don't hold me down The answers are 17 feet above the ground This cage is outrageous It's like you closed the book when I don't know what my page is But I'm breaking out Yeh I'm making plans I called him up upstairs he said he couldn't help but understand That I don't know who to believe I don't know who to believe Yeh you can pour your heart out If you think it will make a sound Yeh I'll still pour my heart out While I'm standing on this ground Until I'm falling down Until I'm falling! Until I'm falling down Until I'm falling! Until I'm falling down Are we wasting our time Just queueing in lines Hoping we might find an answer To the questions we've asked And we'll keep on asking 'til it breezed right past us Should have been there faster But I guess it's easier to say with hindsight Should have checked if your minds right Maybe it wasn't the right time But I don't know who to believe I don't know who to believe Yeh you can pour your heart out If you think it will make a sound Yeh I'll still pour my heart out While I'm standing on this ground Until I'm falling down Until I'm falling! Until I'm falling down Until I'm falling! Until I'm falling down 'til I'm falling down, 'til I'm falling down, 'til I'm falling down

I got time 02:04
We all got troubles We all got pain We try to hang on to love try to keep it the same We all got issues I put mine in my songs Sometimes I'm not fine but I'm carrying on You called me up in a state of disaster She played with your heart then she ripped it up after I can't believe that she'd treat you so bad You're the best thing shes ever had Well I got time to listen to your words I will hear your story And I will try to lift you up and sing 'Cause there are times When it feels like nobody is listening In our different lives Well I got time
