Hamburg (The Early Efforts)

by Beach Tiger

/
1.
It feels so cold Even though Summer sweeps my city streets and strangers smile I've played this game So long it's a shame A bitter mind is based once where a gold heart stood Children laugh Fall to the grass Makes me think of days when I didn't check my watch Breathing slow When I hear your ring Jogs me from my hazy brain "hello, hello" I am waiting on a wire but I don't know why I'm still waiting on a wire but I don't go Maybe when It's fall again The crispy air and scent of smoke and burning leaves Will make me dream Of sweeter things Just like I did when everyday was a brand new plan It's so played out When I talk they shout We all just want the fleeting fame of this day and age I am waiting on a wire but I don't know why I'm still waiting on a wire but I don't go Hello, hello did you miss me? I was gone for years without your misery Hello, hello did you miss me? I was gone for years without your misery

Mind Make 03:25
High above the balance beam Up on the silver screen Inside my future dream Glare from a ruby red Backlit in candle-spread Hang on to what you said I just want to make you, make you I just want to make your mind I just want to make you, make you I just want to make your mind Think like you were seventeen Talk like you're twenty-three Back when you first met me I just want to make you, make you I just want to make your mind I just want to make you, make you I just want to make your mind And if you only knew How hard I've tried to see the other side Being alone was just what I prescribed But then along came you And if you only knew The way in which I've spent the last few years Building a certain kind of lover's fear But then along came you I just want to make you, make you I just want to make your mind I just want to make you, make you I just want to make your mind I just want to make you, make you I just want to make you, make you

Countryside 03:43
Say you don't want to stay here And we'll leave Say you want to be somewhere safe With me Where we can talk about the usual things That we think Like living in the countryside Where we can rest in peace All I want for you is safety, sweetheart A long-life Among other things I can't help it if I don't sleep When you're not around These halls and floors just creak With weird sounds I keep praying for daylight And when it comes I will take you to the countryside Where you can finally breathe All I want for you is safety, sweetheart A long-life Among other things Among other things Among other things Once we tire from the usual things Of our youth Let's build a home out in the countryside And waste away our days All I want for you is safety (safety) All I want for you is safety (safety) All I want for you is safety Sweetheart Long-life Among other things Among other things Among other things

Lover 03:52
Keep me running round Laughing at the sight my lover Said you'll settle down In another life my lover Close your heart and door It's spelling an issue I will never get through Passed out on the ground Half-way through the night I wonder Lover, if you want to be free So long I won't change your mind It won't be easy But if you want to be somebody new Move along I won't change your mind Once you wanted more Now you hit the brakes my lover Said I couldn't bring Better to the plate my lover Take your cluttered words Baggage and your issues I won't even miss you Passed out on the floor Just like the night before No wonder Lover, if you want to be free So long I won't change your mind It won't be easy But if you want to be somebody new Move along I won't change your mind Lover, if you want to be free So long I won't change your mind It won't be easy But if you want to be somebody new Move along I won't change your mind Lover, if you want to be free So long I won't change your mind It won't be easy But if you want to be somebody new Move along I won't change your mind
5.
If I die before I wake I think it'd be an awful thing Imagine all the time we'd lose Just waiting on the wing Too much time we spend on the surface Too much time doing simple chores I'd like to know you And how your heart reacts When I'm at your door I don't wanna miss a chance to say How much I love you when you're lying there How much I love you when you're lying there Conversations will run dry This well will overflow Your heart will be a desert land Your heart will be a home Is there a secret to this mess? Let me know When to hold on tight When to let go This mass of population can't be wrong For some there's not enough time Others it's too long How much I love you when you're lying there How much I love you when you're lying there How much I love you How much I love you Is there a secret to this mess? Let me know When to hold on tight When to let go This mass of population can't be wrong For some there's not enough time Others it's too long How much I love you when you're lying there How much I love you when you're lying there How much I love you when you're lying there How much I love you when you're lying there How much I love you How much I love you How much I love you How much I love you
6.
Hard to Love 03:39
Can't wait 'til I'm back up on my feet again Won't be so hard to love And when my window shows a brighter day Won't be so hard to love I hate when I bring you down I hate when I bring you down So low I hate when I bring you down I hate when I bring you down So low And I can't change it or fake it God knows I get so hard to love And I can't change it or fake it God knows I get so hard to love Might be that my mind can't find a better way When I get so hard to love And I get so restless in my modern ways It's why I'm so hard to love I just seem to bring you down, baby I just seem to bring you down So low And I can't change it or fake it God knows I get so hard to love And I can't change it or fake it God knows I get so hard to love For all the things that I never really meant to For all the things that I never really meant to I'm sorry And I can't change it or fake it God knows I get so hard to love And I can't change it or fake it God knows I get so hard to love And I can't change it or fake it God knows I get so hard to love And I can't change it or fake it God knows I get so hard to love
7.
Numb 02:34
I've got scars in all the wrong places It sure feels that way I know it does It's been months now driving you crazy It sure feels that way I know because Countless hours and endless praying Still can't change the way I know you think The only time I feel you breathing Without the sting Is when you sleep I don't want you to be numb I don't want you to be numb I don't want you to be numb
8.
Just Woke Up 03:44
Let's take a minute just to tell me that I'm alright Most of the time it feels like drowning at the poolside My inhibitions got the best of me last night I'll take a hit of something I know that you don't like To make my inner person tell me that I'm just fine Feels like I'm dying but the world says I'm alive Wait till the morning comes along What is this feeling I get when I am tongue-tied Can't get my brain to hold attention when I'm so tired I hear you talking but my mind's on a misfire I better learn to settle down I got a feeling that I just woke up I got a feeling that I just woke up My reputation is the perfect kind of just right Always afraid of people telling me I'm uptight I'd never find a better friend to hush my lies After all I've done And would you like it if I told you that I maybe A little bored of how I'm dealing with this lately It's like a stranger in the mirror that I'm facing No way you'd understand I got a feeling that I just woke up I got a feeling that I just woke up I got a feeling that I just woke up I got a feeling that I just woke up I got a feeling that I just woke up I got a feeling that I just woke up I got a feeling that I just woke up I got a feeling that I just woke up I got a feeling that I just woke up
9.
I can hear you breathe In the dead of night Whisper slow Yeah, it's coming through I fell in love In the dead of night The low hum Of cars passing through I don't think I'll ever fall in love again If this is how it feels to be complete Cold knows I'll keep you warm I'm slipping through In the dead of night Can't stop my mind It's on overdrive I pray to God In the dead of night To keep you safe As I leave the room I don't think I'll ever fall in love again If this is how it feels to be complete Cold knows I'll keep you warm Cold knows I'll keep you warm All I wanna do is get close to you All I wanna do All I wanna do is get close to you All I wanna do All I wanna do is get close to you All I wanna do All I wanna do is get close to you All I wanna do I don't think I'll ever fall in love again If this is how it feels to be complete Cold knows I'll keep you warm Cold knows I'll keep you warm
