Lyrics

Sugar and Spice

Written By: Not Just Noise

Sugar and Spice

you are all curves, sugar and spice
my no turns into yes and twice
I live the movie
and lean into you

through weathered ruins of tomorrows
you breathe your mystery
in hollowed sorrow
dark red lips meet
in soft and sweet goodbyes

what lies in truth and piercing laughter
I'm with you and time moves faster
we trample dusk and outrun
the fall of night

I've opened doors and now hold flowers
my smile balances the sweet with sour
I wait for your hand to reach
and then you do

you are all curves, sugar and spice
my no turns into yes and twice
I live the movie and lean into you

I live the movie and lean into you

Made for TV Movie

Written By: Not Just Noise

Made for TV Movie

clear the stage
turn off the lights
house is dark now

you tell me, this is your
made for tv movie

who's the star?
and there you are
blocking out the sun
you tell me, this your
feature film
you have to move me

(let me) be your mystery
I'll slip away silently
when it's amber outside
and the sun will not
the sun will not open his eyes

let me be your plot line
freeze me as ice in time
I'll not move, I'll be your silent figure
if only you can move me

(let me) be your mystery
I'll slip away silently
when it's amber outside
and the sun will not
the sun will not open his eyes

I Hate You So Much

Written By: Not Just Noise

I Hate You So Much

daylight bright shines in my eyes
keep them closed, this is why I try
hand to my face
shuts out the truth
if I wake up, I'm still covered in you
my mouth open but without a voice
trapped with you and there is no choice
daylight bright shines in my eyes
keep them closed, this is why I try

let me tell you an ancient story
all pain, and no glory
I am...
I am his rag doll
torn apart at the seams
use me as you please

it wasn't quite what she went looking for;
I ran all night woke up and I was looking at your door.
something wasn't right
but I smiled and pulled the leaves from my dress.
I think you knew last night,
but we both pretended that you hadn't guessed.
