Lyrics

Just Wanted

Written By: Nicholas Herrmann

I painted diamonds and stars in the sky and I was answered by the moonlight in her eyes.
She whispered beauty and darkness in my ear, she stole my apathy and threw away my fear.

I just wanted to say
I just wanted today.

And then I lost my name beneath the midnight sun, but she remembered me despite the things I've done.
Her life, her love, her lust were slowly intertwined with paranoia and confusion in my mind.

I just wanted to say
I just wanted today.

She's a Friend (Sha La La)

Written By: Nicholas Herrmann

She's a friend, she's a lover, she's a clown.
If you're not feeling dizzy then she'll spin you around.
She's everything to everyone and she's everywhere but here,
as she laughs, she sings and walks away.

She'll kiss you with a smile as you're walking in the rain,
and if you've run out of pills she'll take away the pain.
With the softest touch from her hand she'll bruise your heart
and she'll laugh, she'll sing and walk away.

And she'll sing
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la

She's brighter than the sun but you'll never see her light,
and everytime you're with her your heart beats out of time.
You're jealous of her boots because they're always close to her
as she laughs, she sings and walks away.

And she sings
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la
