Luka Lyrics
My name is Luka
I live on the second floor
I live upstairs from you
Yes I think you've seen me before

If you hear something late at night
Some kind of trouble. some kind of fight
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was

I think it's because I'm clumsy
I try not to talk too loud
Maybe it's because I'm crazy
I try not to act too proud


They only hit until you cry
And after that you don't ask why
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore


Yes I think I'm okay
I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that's what I'll say
And it's not your business anyway
I guess I'd like to be alone
With nothing broken, nothing thrown

Just don't ask me how I am
Just don't ask me how I am
Just don't ask me how I am

In The Eye Lyrics
If you were to kill me now right here
I would still look you in the eye
And I would burn myself into your memory
as long as you were still alive


I would live inside of you
I'd make you wear me like a scar
And I would burn myself
into your memory
and run through everything you are


I would not run
I would not turn
I would not hide


I would not run
I would not turn
I would not hide


In the eye


If you were to kill me now right here
I would still look you in the eye
And I would burn myself
into your memory
as long as you were still alive


I would not run
I would not turn
I would not hide


I would not run
I would not turn
I would not hide


In the eye


Look me in the eye

Night Vision Lyrics
By day give thanks
By night beware
Half the world in sweetness
The other in fear


When the darkness takes you
With her hand across your face
Don't give in too quickly
Find the thing she's erased


Find the line, find the shape
Through the grain
Find the outline, things will
Tell you their name


The table. the guitar
The empty glass


All will blend together when
Daylight has passed


Find the line, find the shape
Through the grain
Find the outline, things will
Tell you their name


Now I watch you falling into sleep
Watch your fist curl against the sheet
Watch your lips fall open and your eyes dim
In blind faith


I would shelter you
Keep you in light
But I can only teach you
Night vision
Night vision
Night vision

Solitude Standing Lyrics
Solitude stands by the window
She turns her head as I walk in the room
I can see by her eyes she's been waiting
Standing in the slant of the late afternoon

And she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split, with a flower, with a flame

Solitude stands in the doorway
And I'm struck once again by her black silhouette
By her long cool stare and her silence
I suddenly remember each time we've met

And she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split, with a flower, with a flame

And she says: "I've come to set a twisted thing straight"
And she says: "I've come to lighten this dark heart"
And she takes my wrist, I feel her imprint of fear
And I say: "I've never thought of finding you here"

I turn to the crowd as they're watching
They're sitting all together in the dark in the warm
I wanted to be in there among them
I see how their eyes are gathered into one

And then she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split, with a flower, with a flame

And she says: "I've come to set a twisted thing straight"
And she says: "I've come to lighten this dark heart"
And she takes my wrist, I feel her imprint of fear
And I say: "I've never thought of finding you here"

Solitude stands in the doorway
And I'm struck once again by her black silhouette
By her long cool stare and her silence
I suddenly remember each time that we've met

And she turns to me with her hand extended
Her palm is split, with a flower, with a flame

Calypso Lyrics
My name is Calypso
And I have lived alone
I live on an island
And I waken to the dawn
A long time ago
I watched him struggle with the sea
I knew that he was drowning
And I brought him into me
Now today
Come morning light
He sails away
After one last night
I let him go.


My name is Calypso
My garden overflows
Thick and wild and hidden
Is the sweetness there that grows
My hair it blows long
As I sing into the wind
My name is Calypso
And I have lived alone
I live on an island
I tell of nights
Where I could taste the salt on his skin


Salt of the waves
And of tears
And though he,pulled away
I kept him here for years
I let him go


My name is Calypso
I have let him go
In the dawn he sails away
To be gone forever more
And the waves will take him in again
But he'll know their ways now
I will stand upon the shore
With a clean heart


And my song in the wind
The sand will sting my feet
And the sky will burn
It's a lonely time ahead
I do not ask him to return
I let him go
I let him go

Language Lyrics
If language were liquid
It would be rushing in
Instead here we are
In a silence more eloquent
Than any word could ever be


These words are too solid
They don't move fast enough
To catch the blur in the brain
That flies by and is gone
Gone
Gone
Gone


I'd like to meet you
In a timeless, placeless place
Somewhere out of context
And beyond all consequences


Let's go back to the building
(Words are too solid)
On Little West Twelfth
It is not far away
(They don't move fast enough)
And the river is there
And the sun and the spaces
Are all laying low
(To catch the blur in the brain)
And we'll sit in the silence
(That flies by and is)
That comes rushing in and is
Gone (Gone)


I won't use words again
They don't mean what I meant
They don't say what I said
They're just the crust of the meaning
With realms underneath
Never touched
Never stirred
Never even moved through


If language were liquid
It would be rushing in
Instead here we are
In a silence more eloquent
Than any word could ever be


And is gone
Gone
Gone
And is gone

Gypsy Lyrics
You come from far away
With pictures in your eyes
Of coffeeshops and morning streets
In the blue and silent sunrise
But night is the cathedral
Where we recognized the sign
We strangers know each other now
As part of the whole design

Oh, hold me like a baby
That will not fall asleep
Curl me up inside you
And let me hear you through the heat

You're the jester of this courtyard
With a smile like a girl's
Distracted by the women
With the dimples and the curls
By the pretty and the mischievous
By the timid and the blessed
By the blowing skirts of ladies
Who promise to gather you to their breast

Oh, hold me like a baby...

You have hands of raining water
And that earring in your ear
The wisdom on your face
Denies the number of your years
With the fingers of the potter
And the laughing tale of the fool
The arranger of disorder
With your strange and simple rules
Yes now I've met me another spinner
Of strange and gauzy threads
With a long and slender body
And a bump upon the head

Oh, hold me like a baby...

With a long and slender body
And the sweetest softest hands
And we'll blow away forever soon
And go on to different lands
And please do not ever look for me
But with me you will stay
And you will hear yourself in song
Blowing by one day

Oh, hold me like a baby...
