Western Veil

 
Featured On:
Adrian Borland - Cinematic (1995)

Song Lyrics:
Shadows of doubt
Form like dark skies
Here's where the love waits
Here's where the love hides

It's like I see you for the first time
I hear heaven call
You take me behind your deep sea green eyes
How far will I fall?

Her arms were open
But now she's met them all
Only truth can
Tear down that wall

And you are taking down the signs that say
á'm closed, don't look, don't touch, O.K?

Broken promise
Shattered vows
Her only solace
Is that she's stronger now
She's stronger now

When Can I Be Me

 
Featured On:
Adrian Borland - Cinematic (1995)

Song Lyrics:
There's always this struggle
To find my tongue
This silence mistaken
For consent by everyone
And there's always this aching
And there's always this need
Every road I'll be taking
Cursed by fallen trees

When can I be me she asks
When can I be me ?
This whole world takes my hand
Brings me down to its level
And demands who I should be
Who I should be

Your kisses blind me
I drown in your sin
It will be six years before
I see the box I'm in
Then the rules of engagement
Will be forgotten in the war
I see this relationship
As it sinks beneath the floor

I'm underneath you
Two distant eyes
My fire suffocated
My desire compromised
So far underneath you
Dead in your arms
You still hear me breathing
My instinctive charms
But when can I be me?

Where The Love Is

 
Featured On:
The Sound - All Fall Down (1982)

Song Lyrics:
I want your heart
At the end of this chase
I want to put that smile on your face
I want to take you to a secret place
Where the love is (3x)

Seems like the only cause
That is worth me fighting for
I just throw some light
On your cold floors
Where the love is (3x)

The strength of love is so strong and near
We've got a love so loud and clear
In a room on the floor with you
I want to be in that room with you
Because it's where the love is
Where all the love is (3x)

Whirlpool

 
Featured On:
The Sound - Heads And Hearts (1985)

Song Lyrics:
Headstrong thrown headlong,
Heart over head over heels
In the whirlpool

The routine that held us
On our safe and straight course
Slips like a drunk fool

But we go gladly with smiles like the madman
Who lurk in the whirlpool
Whirlpool, it takes the best
Whirlpool, it takes the best of us

Night follows night here
Daylight just hurts eyes
And gets in our way

There's a moment of anger
A moment in danger but now less occasional
Faster and faster pulling us under
The drag of the whirlpool

White Room

 
Featured On:
Adrian Borland - Beautiful Ammunition (1994),Adrian Borland - The Amsterdam Tapes (2006)

Song Lyrics:
In celebration of you
Hands tight in a white room
I dream in rope and rose fire
But right now I miss you
Right now I feel small
The soulless can crush you
Pressed up to their wall
But we'll find some reason
To smile after all
So don't fade away
Don't fade away
Back into your white room

I'm talking to my heart, as usual
Just trying to make it see some sense
But it's miles away in your white room, again
It says that its time's come
There's no turning back
But my head still remembers
The last time it said that
Can't you see how this splits me
Then you'll see how I crack
So don't fade away
Don't fade away
Back into your white room

Do me one favour tonight
Play that ROXY song
And have a glass of wine
There' s nothing more than this
And never will be
One thousand miles
An ocean of sky
But we'll be together
Feel my spirit fly
It goes straight to that white room
That last verse, it cries
Don't fade away
Don't fade away

Who's Sorry Now

 
Featured On:
The Sound - B-Sides & Rarities (1977-1987)

Song Lyrics:
How can we feel sorry
We live reality
Food we eat and the air we breath
We don't care enough to change
So how can we feel sorry?

How can we feel sorry
See it everyday
I pick up a paper
And I thrown it away.. and I say

How can I feel sorry?

How can I feel sorry?

How can I spare the time?
I've driven by the houses
It's a short road back to mine
Should be mine!

We think we know the cost
We have studied the effects
But have we seen the eyes survive?
The container has nothing left
Nothing left ..
No one left
No one to feel sorry! ooohaah!

One day I'll be sorry
I've turned against myself
With pins of guilt stuck in me
All that's left is someone else ..
Someone to feel sorry ..

Wild Rain

 
Featured On:
White Rose Transmission - 700 Miles Of Desert (1999)

Song Lyrics:
Oh my sweet one where have you been
- I've been walking to the driving wild rain
Oh my sweet one what have you seen
- I saw nothing I was blind in the wild rain
Stay with me now where it's safe and warm
- I don't belong here, I belong to the storm
Oh my sweet one why do you treat yourself this way
- My crime was of the heart and my sentence the wild rain

Wildest Dreams

 
Featured On:
The Sound - Heads And Hearts (1985)

Song Lyrics:
Hiding in daylight, biding it's time
The monster that wakes in your sleeping mind.

Inside of you
You leave it unseen
But it's coming to life
In your wildest dreams.

It's the ground you stand on that' s dissolving away
And the urges you countered that take you out of your way

Down to inside of you
Where it all goes unseen
But coming to life
In your wildest dreams.

No matter what colours, no matter how bright
I'll always want to take you down to my darker side
Chase that feeling for better or worse
It's all beyond the life that's just a matter of course.
Inside of you, don't leave them unseen
Bring to life your wildest dreams.
Come in to I my life.

Winning

 
Featured On:
The Sound - From The Lions Mouth (1981)

Song Lyrics:
What holds your hope together,
Make sure it's strong enough
When you reach the end of your tether
It's because it wasn't strong enough,
I was going to drown,
Then I started swimming
I was going down,
Then I started winning
Winning - winning

When you're on the bottom
Crawl back to the top
Something pulls you up,
and a voice you can't stop,
I was going to drown,
Then I started swimming,
I was going down
Then I started winning
Winning - winning.

Winter

 
Featured On:
The Sound - Shock Of Daylight (1984)

Song Lyrics:
I'd like to sleep one hundred days
My feeling has gone, flesh cold and numb
I'm staring into winter
All's slowing down, snow in the wheels
Frost on the ground, ice cuts the seal
That opens up old wounds
That lets in the winter

Memories and hopes are all that i have
But are they all i need, will they see me
Through this winter?
I'd like to sleep one hundred days
My reason has gone, flesh cold and numb
At least let me sleep through the winter

Words Fail Me

 
Featured On:
The Sound - Jeopardy (1980)

Song Lyrics:
My need gnaws at me
My need claws at me
My need lurks inside
It won't be pacified.

To say what must be said
And nothing else instead.
To reach, and grope no more:
To grab the core.

Words fall,
Words fall short
When I try to bridge the gulf
They fall short.

Words fail, words fail me
Trying to speak from the heart
Of my heart.

Information
Recitation
Communication
That's the complication

World As It Is

 
Featured On:
The Sound - Heads And Hearts (1985)

Song Lyrics:
The world as you'd have it and the world as it is
Sliding in and out of focus, does it ever get to fit
The world as you'd have it and the world as it seems
Keep a sense of the sadness
But drive it out of your dreams
Grit your teeth and say world as it is

I've arrived at the point somewhere in between
The person that I wanted to be and the person I've been
Something's eating me today
Because the question mark in my guts
Says there's hell to pay
I grit my leeth and say world as it is

The world as you'd have it, the world that you see
The world as we'd have it is the world as it will be

You've Got A Way

 
Featured On:
The Sound - Thunder Up (1987)

Song Lyrics:
You won't sit round my bed
I sent you away you're not for me' I said
Now my life's just stopped short of dead
And when I've had enough of me
I think of you instead

In these never changing days
I' ll stand by every word of truth
But it's done me no good
It's done me no good
And when I've given up on me
I always think of you
And a smile that could say
Send you troubles on their way
You've got a way to shoot my night right through with the light of day
You've got a way you've got a way

Won't you take me back again
Won't you let me in again
Don't want to be so pure
But I don't want to go insane
I have tried but I am still starring into a space
Only you can fill with a smile that could say
Send your troubles on their way
You've got a way to shoot the night right through with the light of the day
You've got a way, he-hey, you've got a way
