Lyrics

The Stranger

Written By: Pepína

Untied the ropes
So I could float out to the ocean.
Came to your door,
Came to a land I’d never seen before.
Never seen before.

My mind was full
Of your stories, of your escapades.
“Dig deeper still!
Dig deeper to the core!” you said.

Pull my strings some more.
Raise my fever, drain my soul until it’s sore.
Let me climb inside.
Tear my walls down,
Make it so I can’t hide.
Hide from you.

Trod on the nerve.
You turned your back, you ran away from me.
I have no right,
I have no right to stand so close, to see.
No right to see.

Can’t speak the truth,
Can’t even speak, I am the stranger here.
One day I’ll cross, oh yeah!
I’ll cross the boundary from here to there.

Pull my strings some more.
Raise my fever, drain my soul until it’s sore.
Let me climb inside.
Tear my walls down,
Make it so I can’t hide.
Hide from you.

(Instrumental)

Pull my strings some more, ahh…..
Let me climb inside, ahh….
Oh hide from you, oh hide from you, oh hide from you.

Can't Reach You Now

Written By: Pepína

VOICE 1
I think of how it used to be
You understood every part of me
You saw the places noone knew
Without a word you passed on through
You showed me the whole world
In your eyes
You taught me how to breathe

VOICE 2
Now we sit in silence in the rain
I’ve made you angry once again
Just want to tell you how much I’ve cried
But you’d only ask me why
I didn’t mean to do what I did
I couldn’t help the things I did
Aah (F) Aah (G) Aah (F) Aah (G) Aah (F) Aah (G) (repeat through refrain)

VOICE 1
Your eyes stare right through me
You don’t seem to know me
Why can’t you see me how you used to?
Oh, let me find you
I didn’t want those things to hurt you
I just can’t reach you now
No, no!
I just can’t reach you now

The gound is opening
My world is falling
Into the blackness below
I cannot fight this
I can’t deny this
I know I have to let go
You’re slipping from me
I can’t hold on now
There’s a line being drawn
I can’t reach you
I’ll never reach you
You’re too distant
I can’t! I can’t reach you!

I know you wanted me to shine
You willed me, you gave me life
Gave me purpose, somewhere to go
My stagnant heart you urged to flow
You coloured my whole mind
With your soul
You took away my fear

VOICE 2
Can’t believe that all that is gone
Now there are ashes where stars once shone
Now we pass like strangers in a storm
Empty valleys which once were warm
You’ve closed all the doors to me now
And you’ve given me no key to turn
Aah (F) Aah (G) Aah (F) Aah (G) Aah (F) Aah (G) (repeat through refrain)

VOICE 1
Your eyes stare right through me
You don’t seem to know me
Why can’t you see me how you used to?
Oh, let me find you
I didn’t want those things to hurt you
I just can’t reach you now
No, no!
I just can’t reach you now

The gound is opening
My world is falling
Into the blackness below
I cannot fight this
I can’t deny this
I know I have to let go
You’re slipping from me
I can’t hold on now
There’s a line being drawn
I can’t reach you
I’ll never reach you
You’re too distant
I can’t! I can’t reach you!

(Voices 1 and 2, plus Instrumental)

VOICES 1 / 2
The gound is opening
My world is falling
Into the blackness below
I cannot fight this
I can’t deny this
I know I have to let go
You’re slipping from me
I can’t hold on now
There’s a line being drawn
I can’t reach you
I’ll never reach you
You’re too distant
I can’t! I can’t reach you!
