Damien Rice – The animals were gone

Woke up and for the first time the animals were gone
It’s left this house empty now, not sure if I belong
Yesterday you asked me to write you a pleasant song
I’ll do my best now but you’ve been gone now for so long

The window’s open now and the winter settles in
We’ll call it Christmas when the adverts begin
I love your depression and I love your double chin
I love most everything you bring to this offering

Oh I know that I’ve left you in places of despair
Oh I know that I love you so please throw down your hair

[Chorus]
At night I dream without you
And hope I don’t wake up
Cause waking up without you
Is like drinking from an empty cup

Woke up and for the first time the animals were gone
Our clocks are ticking now so before our time is gone
We can get a house and some boxes on the lawn
We can make babies and accidental songs

I know I’ve been a liar and I know I’ve been a fool
I hope we didn’t break it but I’m glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes, still all I see is you

Oh I know I’ve left you in places of despair
Oh I know that I love you so please throw down your hair


Damien Rice – Older Chests

Older chests reveal themselves
Like a crack in a wall
Starting small, and grow in time
And we always seem to need the help
Of someone else
To mend that shelf
Too many books
Read me your favourite line

Papa went to other lands
And he found someone who understands
The ticking, and the western man’s need to cry
He came back the other day, you know
Some things in life may change
And some things
They stay the same

Like time, there’s always time
On my mind
So pass me by, I’ll be fine
Just give me time

Older gents sit on the fence
With their cap in hand
Looking grand
They watch their city change
Children scream, or so it seems,
Louder than before
Out of doors, and into stores with bigger names
Mama tried to wash their faces
But these kids they lost their graces
And daddy lost at the races too many times

She broke down the other day, yeah you know
Some things in life may change
But some things they stay the same

Like time, there’s always time
On my mind
So pass me by, I’ll be fine
Just give me time
Time, there’s always time
On my mind
Pass me by, I’ll be fine
Just give me time


Damien Rice – Rootless Tree

What I want from you is empty your head
But they say be true, don’t stay in your bed
And we do what we need to be free
And it leans on me like a rootless tree

What I want from us is empty our minds
But we fake, we fuss and fracture the times
We go blind when we’ve needed to see
And this leans on me like a rootless

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
And all we’ve been through
I said leave it, leave it, leave it
It’s nothing to you

And if you hate me, hate me
Hate me and hate me so good
That you just let me out
Let me out, let me out?
It’s hell when you’re around

Let me out, let me out, let me out
Hell when you’re around
Let me out, let me out, let me out

What I want from this is to learn to let go
No, not of you, of all that’s been told
Killers re-invent and believe
And this leans on me like a rootless

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
And all we’ve been through
I said leave it, leave it
Leave it, it’s nothing to you

And you hate me, hate me
Hate me and hate me so good
That you just let me out
Let me out, let me out?
It’s hell when you’re around

Let me out, let me out, let me out
It’s hell when you’re around

Let me out, let me out, let me out
Hell when you’re around
Let me out, let me out, let me out
Hell when you’re around

Let me out, let me out, let me out, let me out
Let me out, let me out, let me out, let me out
Let me out, let me out, let me out, let me out
Let me out, let me out, let me out

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
And all you’ve been through
I said leave it, leave it
Leave it, it’s nothing to you

And if you hate me, hate me
Hate me, and hate me so good
That you just let me out, let me out
Let me out, let me out, let me out?

Let me out, let me out, let me out, let me out
Let me out, let me out, let me out, let me out
Let me out, let me out, let me out

Let me out, let me out, let me out
Hell when you’re around
Let me out, let me out, let me out
Hell when you’re around

Let me out, let me out, let me out
Hell when you’re around
Let me out, let me out, let me out
Hell when you’re around


Damien Rice – Volcano

Don’t hold yourself like that
cause You’ll hurt your knees
well I kissed your mouth, and back
But that’s all I need
Don’t build your world around
Volcanoes melt you down

And What I am to you is not real
What I am to you, you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I’ll ask for the sea

Don’t throw yourself like that
In front of me
I kissed your mouth, your back
Is that all you need?
Don’t drag my love around
Volcanoes melt me down

What I am to you is not real
What I am to you, you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I’ll ask
What I give to you is just what I’m going through
This is nothing new, no, no just another phase of finding
what I really need is what makes me bleed
But like a new disease, Lord, she’s still too young to treat
Volcanoes melt you down
She’s still too young +what iam to you+you do not need+is not real
I kissed your mouth
You do not need me


Damien Rice – 9 crimes – Matthias Schweighöfer

Leave me out with the waste
this is not what I do
it’s the wrong kind of place
to be thinking of you
it’s the wrong time
for somebody new
it’s a small crime
and I’ve got no excuse
Refrain:

is that alright? (yeah)
I give my gun away when it’s loaded
is that alright? (yeah)
if you don’t shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it?
is that alright? (yeah)
I give my gun away when it’s loaded
is that alright… with you ?

leave me out with the waste
this is not what I do
it’s the wrong kind of place
to be cheating on you
it’s the wrong time
she’s pulling me through
it’s a small crime
and I’ve got no excuse

Refrain: [2x]
is that alright? (yeah)
I give my gun away when it’s loaded (is that alright? yeah)
is that alright? (yeah)
if you don’t shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it? (is that alright? yeah)
is that alright? (yeah)
I give my gun away when it’s loaded (is that alright? yeah)
is that alright;
is that alright with you ?
is that alright? (yeah) [3x]
is that alright
is that alright
is that alright with you ? (no)


Damien Rice – The Blower’s Daughter

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time

And so it is
The shorter story
No love no glory
No hero in her skies

I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes

And so it is
Just like you said it should be
We’ll both forget the breeze
Most of the time

And so it is
The colder water
The blower’s daughter
The pupil in denial

I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes off you
I can’t take my eyes

Did I say that I loathe you?
Did I say that I want to leave it all behind?

I can’t take my mind off you
I can’t take my mind off you
I can’t take my mind off you
I can’t take my mind off you
I can’t take my mind off you
I can’t take my mind

My mind
My mind
‚til I find somebody new


21-11-2010 – Damien Rice – Delicate

We might kiss when we are alone
When nobody’s watching
We might take it home
We might make out when nobody’s there
It’s not that we’re scared
It’s just that it’s delicate

So why’d you fill my sorrows
With the words you’ve borrowed
From the only place you’ve known
And why’d ya sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why’d you sing with me at all?

We might live like never before
When there’s nothing to give
Well how can we ask for more
We might make love in some sacred place
The look on your face is delicate

So why’d you fill my sorrow
With the words you’ve borrowed
From the only place that you’ve known
And why’d you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why’d you sing with me at all?

And why’d you fill my sorrows
With the words you’ve borrowed
From the only place that you’ve known
Why’d you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why’d you sing with me at all?
