Up For You And I

(Think I’m) Up For You & I (Angelskår)

 

Getting used to the silence

Used to waking up alone

I never went for affection

I’m just the guy she’s leaning on

 

And if I should tell you lies

Be good enough and try to sort me out

And if I should say goodbye

Be good enough and try to turn me ‘round

Cause I’m up for you and I

 

Tried to see the world through your eyes

But it didn’t make the change

And when I tried to make it in your world

I just couldn’t find my place

 

So if I should tell you lies

Be good enough and try to sort me out

And if I should say goodbye

Be good enough and try to turn me ‘round

Cause I’m up for you and I

 

So how do you want me to please you

I can’t even save myself

And how am I supposed to please you

When I wish you were someone else

 

And if I should tell you lies

Be good enough and try to sort me out

And if I should say goodbye

Be good enough and try to turn me ‘round

Cause I’m up for you and I

 

Think I’m up for you and I

 

 

Wish You Knew (Angelskår)

 

Think I’ll walk this walk alone

I’ll do this one on my own

Feet on the ground

I’m not afraid to let you go

I just hate to let you know

Now you’re on you own

 

I wish you knew

Yeah I do

I wish you knew

Yeah I do

 

I’d rather walk this walk alone

Instead of searching for a reason

Just for hanging ‘round

And I’m not afraid to lose myself

I might be better at being someone else

 

I wish you knew

Yeah I do

I wish you knew

Yeah I do

 

So much for asking, but did it hurt?

Just want to know, I want to know for sure

 

I wish you knew

Yeah I do

 

 

She Gave Me Away (Angelskår)

 

She gave me away

Even though she wasn’t supposed to say

She gave me away

In front of all of my friends today

I’ve decided to keep it for myself

She made me hide my face

 

She gave me away

I had to take a fall from grace

She gave me away

I didn’t even defend myself

but hey…

I get a little stronger every day

And I’m not ashamed

 

She gave me away

She made me stay at home for days

She gave me away

And we were supposed to share the blame

I can’t forget the look upon her face

When she gave me away

 

 

(In That) Premature Way (Angelskår)

 

I’m not coming with you tonight

I’m going to talk myself empty

Then I’m going to say good night

You’re just not what I had in mind

And you might be good looking

But you just don’t look right

 

But I’m not going to tell you tonight

I’m going to lie and claim

I’ve had the time of my life

But tomorrow I’m not going to call

And my conscience

it won’t bother me at all

 

But hey, you made my day

I’ve been all excited in that premature way

now you’re part of the game

 

You’re going home alone tonight

When you wake up in the morning

You’re going to be all right

There might be coffee on your stove

If you want to, you can choose

To leave the day alone

You can sink down between the sheets

You can open up the window and let the sun come in

You can do whatever you want

But tonight, you’re going home alone

 

But hey, you made my day

I’ve been all excited in that premature way

Hey girl, you made my day

I’ve been all excited in that premature way

And now you’re part of the game

 

 

I Thought I Knew You (Melody: Stieng / Words: Angelskår)

 

Trying to accept the things you do

I keep giving you reasons for it

Not anyone could piss me off like you do

I keep giving you motives

 

I thought I knew you

I thought I knew you

 

Slowly going through the things you say

Like anything you ever said was true

Trying to find some comfort in what we had

When I thought I knew you

 

I thought I knew you

I thought I knew you

 

I hope that I won’t notice if you lie

I’m smoothing over small offences

Picturing you with another guy

Your face keeps falling out of focus

 

I thought I knew you

I thought I knew you

I thought I knew You

 

 

Take It In (Angelskår)

You’d never guess what I tell her

When we’re on our own

You’d be surprised by how she looks at me

When we’re all alone

 

Any day now she’ll break free

And you won’t even think of me

But I’m the one

Who made her leave her seat

 

Just don’t underestimate her will

You never saw what I can see

And she never looked as good with you

As she does with me

 

When you pretend you never knew

I take it that’s the thing to do

But I shall never pity you again

Any day now she’ll break free

And one day you will think of me

When you do, make sure you take it in

 

You’d never guess what she’s been telling me

When we’re on our own

You’d be surprised by how she looks at me

When we’re all alone

 

When you pretend you never knew

I take it that’s the thing to do

But I shall never pity you again

And any day now she’ll break free

And one day you will think of me

When you do, make sure to take it in

 

 

The Dark Half (Angelskår)

 

You’re running out of time boy

show me what you’ve got

in a couple of minutes

they’ll be shutting you up

everybody’ll say they’re sorry

but don’t believe a word

they’re just giving in to the dark half

that’s what I’ve heard

 

So you decided to make it

on your own

who’s to take the blame then

when you lose control

everybody’ll say they’re sorry

but you can’t see why

you’re just keeping up track

with the dark half, tonight

 

and who’ll be there to support you

when the shit goes down

you’ve got to ask yourself now

do you want them around

cause everybody’s going to be sorry

when you run dry

and you’ll be stuck out here

with the dark half by your side

 

so now you’re touching

ground with us

everyone here is a victim

but you’re the boss

and although you’re truly sorry

you’ve got to put on a show

if you talk the talk

you’ve got to walk this walk alone

 

 

A Song For Nicole (Angelskår)

Don’t know where you are

But I still think of you sometimes

I wonder what you do

But I’m sure you’re doing good

 

Goodbye Nicole

Do you ever think of me at all?

 

So how’s work these days

Still putting up a pretty face?

Are you still looking for that one big job

The one that’ll justify all the things that you’ve done

 

Goodbye Nicole

Not once did you lose control

Goodbye Nicole

This time it hardly hurts at all

 

Are you ever off?

Did you ever consider slowing down?

It might not hurt at all

Are you still seeing that foreign guy?

You know, you should try for real this time

I don’t mind you seeing him

Just don’t expect me to believe in anything

 

Goodbye Nicole

This time it hardly hurts at all

Goodbye Nicole

Not once did you lose control

 

Are you ever off?

Did you ever consider slowing down?

Cause it might not hurt at all

Cause it might not hurt at all

 

 

This Time (Angelskår)

 

Time is running out

She’s not coming over

Not even dropping by

And I don’t need no other friend

Don’t want no other lover

Not as long as she’s around

Not this time

 

So you’ve seen me on my knees

Surrounded by memories

It’s the one thing you can’t have

You’ve been watching me crawl

The least you could do is call

Or have the courtesy to call back

This one time

 

And everywhere I go

Everyone I get to know

They all seem to drop out

Baby, won’t you come back

Just to show me around

 

Time is running out

She’s not coming over

Not even dropping by

And I could use another friend

Someone else’s shoulder

Someone else’s hand

This time

 

Wonder If She Knows (Angelskår)

 

This is the day

The day of my life

I am about to grow old

The taste of her chewing gum still in my mouth

I’ll follow wherever she goes

 

I wonder if she’d ever recognize me

If I was part of a crowd

If I threw you a smile

Would it open your eyes

Would you have to look twice?

 

I wonder if she knows that she takes all my time

Wonder if she thinks that I’m pretty

I wonder sometimes, did I do all right?

And how I know what she’ll wear almost every day

 

If I were to ask out one of your friends

Just to find out where you’d go

Would I stand a chance

If I asked you to dance

Would you like me, would you let me know?

 

If we were to meet in a dark dead end street

Would you think of me as a threat?

Would you feel tense,

Would you call up your friends,

Would you kiss me out of my breath?

 

I wonder if she knows that she takes all my time

Wonder if she thinks that I’m pretty

I wonder sometimes, did I do all right?

And how I know what she’ll wear almost every day

 

 

Start A Fire (Angelskår)

 

There’s a scar going straight through my heart

Through my flesh and blood

And it’s eating me up

 

All the dead weight I carry around

Just to pick at you

Now it’s all that I’ve got

 

And I don’t want to get over you

Cause what’s there to go over to

Kinda like being blue when you’re calling

 

Don’t ever let her know

That you’re falling in love

Cause when you’re on your own

You’re all you’ve got

 

Just like the space of an empty room

It’s nothing but space to you

To me, it’s a void

 

And I don’t want to get over you

Cause what’s there to go over to

Kinda like being blue when you’re calling

 

I want to go where the strange ones go

Know what the strange ones know

Turn the lights down low

 

And if I lose you once and for all

Will I take the fall?

What if I let it go?

 

No, I don’t want to get over you

Cause what’s there to go over to

No, I don’t want to get over you

Cause what’s there to go over to

Kinda like being blue when you’re calling

I hear you calling
