My Secrets

Where Did I Go Wrong?

Consider my heart beating before you
Holding a tune, singing it to you
You gave me your heart beating before me
Holding a tune, singing it to me

Once we were strangers walking alone
Each other’s names we’d never have known
And even with words I can not say
What led me to you on that fateful day

And I say oh

If I am a dreamer you are my dream
And when I wake up you’re here with me
Let’s take a ride to the end of the sea
And keep going ‘round just you and me

And I say oh

Consider my heart beating before you
Holding a tune, singing it to you
You gave me your heart beating before me
Holding a tune, singing it to me

I dreamt of Elvis last night
He was young and kind of quiet
All the girls went wild
I made eyes
He noticed me for a moment
I wanted to be special
But I got lost in the crowd
Woke up and realised he was dead and old

Dreams are just movies
To entertain the ghosts
My dreams are their horror flicks and
Nik’s are their pornos
Dreams are just movies
To entertain the ghosts
My dreams are their horror flicks and
Nik’s are their pornos

I dreamt of a body
It was in my house
I had to bury it
It was a hundred kilos
Don’t know how it got there
Didn’t ask any questions
I come from Sicily you see
We don’t ask these things

Dreams are just movies
To entertain the ghosts
My dreams are their horror flicks and
Nik’s are their pornos
Dreams are just movies
To entertain the ghosts
My dreams are their horror flicks and
Nik’s are their pornos

The air is thick with dirt and debris
The cars wear leaves for jewellery
The heat is staying up with the moon
I don’t think we’re getting clean too soon

And everyone says
And everyone says
And everyone says

Oh this town is going down, down, down
Every man and his boat has claimed it
No saint bone can cure its cancer
When it coughs up its dirty tricks

The church is lined with skulls and bones
It eats my coins like all its clones
Its neighbours crumble to the ground
Once was lost, never found

And everyone says
And everyone says
And everyone says

Oh this town is going down, down, down
Every man and his boat has claimed it
No saint bone can cure its cancer
When it coughs up its dirty tricks

And everyone said
And everyone said
And everyone said

We will not go down
We will not go down
We will not go down
We will not go down

No this town will not go down, down, down
Every man and his boat has claimed it
Her saint bone once cured its cancer
When it coughed up its dirty tricks

We will not go down
We will not go down
We will not go down
We will not go down

Faraway now dropping crumbs on a trail
Don’t want to end up on a dinner plate
‘Where have you been?’ my mother said to me
When I returned without my brother Timothy

Faraway now looking for the witch’s key
Little brother, why were you so greedy?
In the end we will all be empty
Don’t go fishing in someone else’s stream

Faraway now won’t be long ‘til we are free
Light the oven, push her in and run with me
Through the forest, don’t know which way is home
Darkness falling, say goodbye

Faraway now dropping crumbs on a trail
Don’t want to end up on a dinner plate
‘Where have you been?’ my mother said to me
When I returned without my brother Timothy

Paint the walls another colour
Dye your hair the deepest red
But you can’t run away from the daemon in your head

Move to where the grass is greener
Throw matchsticks upon your bed
But you can’t run away from the daemon in your head

It will catch you in the end, it’s already run this race
‘If you can’t beat them join them,’ says the daemon in your head

I want you for supper
I want you for tea
I want you forever
Come this way with me

Or I will stitch you up
Pour you out
And you’ll never be free

I want you my lover
I want you with me
I want you forever
Come this way with me

Or I will stitch you up
Pour you out
And you’ll never be free

There was red
There was yellow too but
There was no rainbow
There was no blue
You dreamt of circles
The perfect kiss
But in the end
There was nothing to miss

Fly away
Lonely Blackbird
Into arms
You can caress
Everything
You thought you had
Was not here
Was not here…

They say for life
They say forever
They gave you hope
To never say never
You saw a future
A golden egg
But you were dreaming
It lived inside your head

Fly away
Lonely Blackbird
Into arms
You can caress
Everything
You thought you had
Was not here
Was not here…

She said…

“I went to the psychiatrist and he told me I was mad.
I’m not mad, I’ve just go to win twenty million dollars.”
Twenty million dollars solves everything in this day and age; even our rotten brains
And I can see a rainbow of green red and yellow
I want to dive in

Cos I’m…
Twenty million dollars short of sanity
Twenty million dollars short of happiness
Twenty million dollars short of fame
Twenty million dollars short of love

I’m close with the barmaids
I’ve lost all my friends
I can smell the smell of money
I forget what my kids look like in the daylight
But I got them a casino novelty pen

And the screen it shines like candy
It sings me a sweet lullaby,
“Your future looks bright if you continue to play.
Now listen to what I have to say.”

First go
Too slow
Next go
Bingo
Breathe in
Breathe out
Heart is
Racing
Next go
Hello
My friend
Pharaoh
Lend me
A dime
Promise
This time

Twenty million dollars short of sanity
Twenty million dollars short of happiness
Twenty million dollars short of fame
Twenty million dollars short of love

Twenty million dollars short of sanity
Twenty million dollars short of happiness
Twenty million dollars short of fame
Twenty million dollars short of love…

 

So I woke up Thursday morning with a cool breeze in my mind
We nursed it into being just in the knick of time
Its heart beat so softly
Its words were still shy
As it made its way into your soul it let out a cry

Falling into your arms
I know everything’s going to be fine
Feeling the weight lifting off

Every fragile moment seemed like a setting sun
I knew that with the next day this would all be gone
I realise that the creature lies deep within my lungs
I miss you I thank you
My life has just begun

Falling into your arms
I know everything’s going to be fine
Feeling the weight lifting off

 

I saw your fingertips turn into icicles
It was a cold July as I held your hand in mine
We smoked winter cigars, they were made of cold air
We kept breathing out till you got dizzy like me

It never snows in Sydney but it sure felt like it could
With our robin-coloured cheeks and the white frost in our lungs
You know what they say about cold hands
We had the sun in our heart and we still do

And you mean the world to me
And you deserve the world
And you mean the world to world, I know
Cos you mean the world to me

And with the end of the year comes the smoke and the fire
We never burnt down even though the houses did
We witnessed many things like the death of icecream
As it melted to the ground in a multi-coloured stream

And the seagulls they fought over hot chips
We named one Henry-Lee, he only had one leg
We heard the same song on repeat
It got caught in our heads
And the only line I know was the one that meant that

And you mean the world to me
And you deserve the world
And you mean the world to world, I know
Cos you mean the world to me

 

Collecting raindrops from the sky in your eyes
A new town every day till you’re sixty-five

And it goes, like the springtime in the night
You forever put up a fight
Oh, falling faces in the dark

You buried your memories in the ground
Quiet now children, don’t make a sound

And it goes, like a fast train in the night
You forever put up a fight
Oh, wheels in the dark

Please I don’t want to leave here now
I’ve found my feet
I’ve found my heart

But you take it away from me now

And it goes…

 

She wears her heart on her sleeve
She wears her fears in her eyes
Her day in her sleep
To repeat

But in her hands
Between her fingers
Oh so close to her chest
She will tell you

That’s where I hold my secrets
That’s where I hold my secrets
That’s where I hold my secrets
Now

She draws them out on paper
Saves a few for later
Friends on the walls
Hiding in draws

But in her hands
Between her fingers
Oh so close to her chest
She will tell you

That’s where I hold my secrets
That’s where I hold my secrets
That’s where I hold my secrets
Now
Now
That’s where I hold my secrets
That’s where I hold my secrets
That’s where I hold my secrets
Now

 

I’m feeling a little bit lost
Like I have a long way to go
Like I have a lot of growing to do
Like I don’t have much to show

I feel like I fell off the wagon
And now everyone has made it to town
But I’m still on a dirt road
Sticking my thumb out
Hoping colour will appear in the snow

But some days they come along
And like that I feel better
I know
What I want, I know
Just how to get it
Then like that
I’m back looking at my compass
Thinking where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?

I’m feeling just a little bit lost
Like I’ve strayed too far from the pack
Like I stopped for a minute and on it went
And nobody’s coming back

I feel like I’m six feet tall
In a world made up of giants
I don’t stand a chance
Against their rank
And my aims they should be small

But some days they come along
And like that I feel better
I know
What I want, I know
Just how to get it
Then like that
I’m back looking at my compass
Thinking where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?

Oooh

I feel like I fell off the wagon
And now everyone has made it to town
But I’m still on a dirt road
Sticking my thumb out
Hoping colour will appear in the snow
Thinking where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?
