If I Told You You Were Beautiful

If I Told You, You Were Beautiful (Angelskår)

 

So you want to play truth or dare

With a guy like me, see what’s underneath

When I’m as open as the clear, blue sky

And as far away, but if you don’t mind

Then I could sure use a girl like you

Would you come with me, if I asked you to?

If I told you you were beautiful?

 

So long baby

Your affection turns me on

Girl, you drive me crazy

To be with someone, when your on your own

To be with someone like you

 

4 am I’m outside your house

Your door is shut, but your window’s not

I spot your face as I turn away

There’s a presence made, a yesterday

And I could sure use a girl like you

But would you let me go, if I asked you to?

If I told you you were beautiful?

 

So long baby

Your affection turns me on

Girl, you drive me crazy

 

So long baby

It’s the singer not the song

Girl, that catches your fancy

To be with someone, when your on your own

To be with someone like you

 

 

By This Time Tomorrow (Angelskår)

 

Just one more promise and then I’ll leave

The floor turns into velcro under my feet

A big yellow taxi and an empty street

Play past it, play past it

 

By this time tomorrow I’ll be over you

By this time tomorrow there’ll be nothing left to lose

And it breaks my heart

 

 

They all say I should let go of you

That you’re nothing but a mood that I choose

But they don’t know how we spent our days

They don’t know what we’re throwing away

 

By this time tomorrow I’ll be over you

By this time tomorrow there’ll be nothing left to lose

And it breaks my heart

 

Just one more phone call just to let you know

To cover my mistakes, to correct my wrongs

Spent so much time trying to let you go

I no longer know if it’s what I want

 

By this time tomorrow I might give in

By this time tomorrow I might just tell you how I feel

And it will break your heart

 

 

Dancing In The Backyard (Angelskår / Fields)

 

She came to me with that look on her face

There’s freedom she says in changing your ways

I don’t believe in staying the same

Guess I just don’t relate to the things that I say

When there’s no one there to correct me

To put me in place

And there’s going to be a dance in the backyard

 

Come with me, oh don’t be sad

When there’s a party going on

Come with me, I’ll take you dancing in the backyard

 

She’s the kind of girl, that’ll mess up your head

There’s freedom she says in being mislead

I don’t belive in being myself

Guess I just don’t approve of the choices I make

When there’s no one there to correct me

To put me in place

And there’s going to be a dance in the backyard

 

Come with me, oh don’t be sad

When there’s a party going on

Come with me, I’ll take you dancing in the backyard

Come with me, oh don’t be sad

When there’s a party going on

Come with me, I’ll take you dancing in the backyard

dancing in the backyard

dancing in the backyard

dancing in the backyard

 

 

She Came Back for Her Smile (Melody: Stieng / Words: Angelskår)

 

She came back for it

She came back for her smile

She had lost in the night

 

Snow was falling

Her shadow dressed up in white

She came back for her smile

 

She came back for it

She came back for her smile

To make sure she was kept in mind

 

Without a warning

A star fell from the sky

Eager to be part of her sight

 

She came back for it

She came back just in time

She came back for smile

 

 

Smile at Everyone (Angelskår)

 

So the plane fell down and the pilot never got to see

The hero he became on international TV

And even though the photo shown, was kind of old

The story of his life was beautifully told

 

When he was young

He used to smile at everyone

And now he’s gone

 

And even though he’s no part of your life

There’s a feeling of loss that you just can’t put aside

Then at one point you forget how to spell his name

And what breaks your heart is how you manage to stay the same

 

When he was young

He used to smile at everyone

And now he’s gone

 

 

Motor Away (Robert Pollard) Originally performed by Guided By Voices

 

When you motor away

Beyond the once red lips

You can free yourself from the chance of a lifetime

You can be anyone they told you to

You can belittle every little voice that told you so

Time will come when you add up the numbers

Then the time will come when you motor away

 

Why don’t you just drive away

When you motor away

Down the icy streets

You can lie to yourself, it’s the chance of a lifetime

You can be anyone they told you to

You can belittle every little voice that told you so

Time will come when you add up the numbers

Then the time will come when you motor away

Why don’t you just drive away

Come on, speed on

 

 

The Smell of Coffee (Melody: Stieng / Words: Angelskår)

As you read the morning paper

She’s still sleeping like a child

The smell of coffee from the stove

It wakes her up but you don’t know

 

Naked feet run down the staircase

A tired smile to keep you warm

The smell of coffee from the stove

It woke her up and now you know

 

Tired feet run down the staircase

A naked smile to keep you warm

And as you pour the second cup

You realize you’re not alone

 

 

Sunburnt Noon (Angelskår)

 

Tomorrow passed me by

Drew back the curtain and plugged in the lamp

Said; you could borrow my shirt

The Lemonheads playing Amsterdam

And when you’re dressed for work

You scan the headlines on MTV

There’s always someone new

On the verge of happening

 

And in the world outside

The city’s facing a sunburnt noon

In the world outside

Words don’t come easy

 

So it pays the rent

Did you get around to tell your mum and dad

Just what you do

It’s not so bad

The coffee is free and the tip is high

And it sure feels good

To work with your hands

 

And in the world outside

The city’s facing a sunburnt noon

In the world outside

Words don’t come easy

 

So how’s your band doing?

Any gig worthy of note?

Will you strike the right chord in me?

 

In the world outside

The city’s facing a sunburnt noon

In the world outside

Words don’t come easy

 

Oh Yeah (Angelskår)

 

Let’s go out tonight

Let’s not think about why

Let’s not talk about money spent

Let’s just spend it

 

Oh Yeah

Oh Yeah

Oh Yeah

Oh Yeah

 

Let’s make most of the day

Come on kick the clouds away

Let’s put tomorrow down the hard way

 

Oh Yeah

Oh Yeah

Oh Yeah

Oh Yeah

 

 

Angeline (Angelskår)

 

There’s a name on the wall

But you can’t make it out

There’s a noise in the hall

But there’s no one about

So you sneak out of bed

Hoping you’ll catch Angeline

Your face is growing dark

As you fold out your heart

Angeline

 

There’s a crack in the window

There’s snow on the floor

There’s a wind out there howling

But you want to make sure

As you light up a candle

She knocks on your door, Angeline

Your face is growing pale

As you spell out her name

Angeline

 

Angeline you’ve got nothing to fear

It’s only me, you’re in for a treat

Angeline I wish you’d see the other me

The one you’re about to release

 

You’ve heard all about her

But you haven’t seen her face

When she enters your room

You’re no longer afraid

Cause you know that if you’ll die

You’ll die with a smile, Angeline

You just stare for a while

When closing your eyes, you believe

 

Angeline you’ve got nothing to fear

It’s only me, you’re in for a treat

Angeline I wish you’d see the other me

The one you’re about to release

 

Her hair is untidy

But her eyes they look mild

She has a robe hanging around her

It was made for a child

As she unfolds her gown

You see her shoulders they’re burnt from the sun

So you stretch out your hand

Just to see if you can

And then she is gone

 

Angeline you’ve got nothing to fear

It’s only me, you’re in for a treat

Angeline I wish you’d see the other me

The one you’re about to release

 

 

Then You Said Something (Angelskår)

 

Then you said something of importance

And it had impact on my life

It was something beautiful

It was something thorough

And now I just don’t understand

Why I don’t remember

Why can’t I recall

 

You’re like an ambush

You’re kicking in…

When I’m not in control

It’s kinda like spitting

Without looking

Your almost sure to miss someone

And I, I don’t remember

Why can’t I recall

 

Then I came to understand

That when I’m with you

I’m a better man

 

 

Learning The Game (Buddy Holly)

 

Hearts that are broken

And love that’s untrue

These go with learning the game

When you love her

And she doesn’t love you

You’re only learning the game

 

When she says that you’re the only one she’ll ever love

Then you find that you are not the one she’s thinking of

Feeling so sad cause you’re all alone and blue

That’s when you’re learning the game

 

When she says that you’re the only one she’ll ever love

then you find that you are not the one she’s thinking of

feeling so sad cause you’re all alone and blue

that’s when you’re learning the game

that’s when you’re learning the game
