The Gift – Annie Lennox

The room is full of silence and it’s getting hard to breathe Take this guilded cage of pain and set me free Take this overcoat of shame, it never did belong to me It never did belong to me… I need to go outside, I need to leave the smoke ‘Cause I can’t go on […]

Twisted – Annie Lennox

I didn’t mean to be a friend But now it seems I’d run through burnin’ fire Just to see your face again I didn’t want to hurt you (or be hurt by you) At the closing of the game but now it seems Too late for that desire I watched it all go up in […]

Wonderful – Annie Lennox

‘Cause you’re all I’ve got Don’t wanna lose you ‘Cause it means a lot All the joy this world can bring Doesn’t give me anything When you’re not here… Idiot me Stupid fool How could you be So uncool? To fall in love with someone who Doesn’t really care for you It’s so obscure… But […]

Pavement Cracks – Annie Lennox

But I’m walkin’ just the same Skies turn to the usual grey When you turn to face the day And love don’t show up in the pavement cracks All my water colours fade to black I’m goin’ nowhere and I’m ten steps back All my dreams have fallen flat (Love don’t show in the pavement […]

Don’t Let It Bring You Down – Annie Lennox

Through The Glass Darkly – Annie Lennox

Coloured Bedspread – Annie Lennox

I wanna hide again The nights are cavin’ in On my coloured bedspread I wanna drift so far To slip out of the crowd It doesn’t matter how On my coloured bedspread You make the stars dissolve Like sugar melting in my mouth Some people come and go But they won’t ever know About the […]

Lost – Annie Lennox

Coming out of the darkness And into the light Shining alarmingly Curiously bright This is the sound of those murderous drums The marching of footsteps The twisting of thumbs Over and over Again here it comes We’re lost (baby come again don’t let me fall) We’re lost (baby come again despite it all) Were lost […]

The Hurting Time – Annie Lennox

To every blade of grass And every leaf on every tree Every livin’ thing will surely Come to pass And what will be will be… That’s when the hurtin’ time begins And all the things you never said Or didn’t have the strengh to say And everything you ever did That time won’t ever wash […]
