Steve Kilbey & Martin Kennedy - You Are Everything

I Wouldn't Know

According to the latest sources
The authorities are on your game
I wouldn't know
That's not my name

I heard that they're gonna pick you up
Next time you show your face
I wouldn't know
That's not my place

Set in stone
Put in ground

I thought I saw some film of you
Someone stuck on the net
I wouldn't know
I never bet

In the book I read they said that you were dead
They said that you had tempted Eve
I wouldn't know
I don't believe

Move in earth
Talk in flame, in flame

I wandered abroad looking for the law
I found you somewhere instead
I wouldn't know
I never said

I watched your star crashing into my heart
I felt your icy scorn
I wouldn't know
I am unborn

 

Everyone

Oh god I'm walking in circles
Oh lord lost in your wake
Oh my goodness why did you leave me
Leave me with this empty ache

This pain of life, this labour of love
This toil and sweat, this blood and stone
I know you're everywhere
So why do I feel so alone

Was this all just a game to you
Gonna miss my turn if it's the same to you

Dear baby I'm lost and starving
Dear love I'm down and broke
Dear father send me money
In this pitiless city I'm the joke

The joke is over, the judge is sober
Women sigh as you disrobe her
Clothes are gone just like the swan
The swan who flew into the sun

Was this all just a phase for you
Getting outta this place without you

Hold on
You're everyone
Hold on
You're everyone

Hold on
You're everyone
Hold on
You're everyone

Hold on
You're everyone
Hold on
You're everyone

Hold on
You're everyone
Hold on
You're everyone

 

Lorelei

Couldn't really see where I was going
I walked into the cabaret
I can't let go of what I'm throwin'
I thought it was just yesterday

Oh Lorelei
Just send him away
Just send him away
So far away

Oh Lorelei
I'll meet you today
Just send him away
Just send him away

Couldn't really help what I was minding
I mistake me for another guy
Couldn't really hide what I was finding
I'm finding that I shouldn't try

Oh Lorelei
Don't let him stay
Don't let him stay
Send him away

Oh Lorelei
I'll meet you today
Don't let him stay
Don't let him stay

 

Knowing You Are In This World

[rev. May 31, 2014]

Lately
I don't know what's on the cards
And I know that that is hard for you
To come back to

And strangely
I don't what these days will hold
And I know that that seems cold to you
Knowing you are in this world

Somehow
I can never get it right
And it's just not black and white this time
It's the finest line

And somewhere
Maybe on another plane
But I know that seems in vain to you
Knowing you are in this world

Ahh Baby
Now you're looking very fine
I just wanna give what's mine to you
So it all goes through

And maybe
On some far off distant earth
I don't know what that is worth to you
Knowing you are in this world
In this world

 

I Find

[rev. Apr. 30, 2015]

I find morning yawning
Naked and ruined
Half formed in the distance
Baby what are you doing

I find evening leaving
Grotesque and decaying
The beach is deserted
Lady what are you saying

In Brazil
The eyes of love are on you
Imbecile
The highs are right above you

My hotel is full now
Voices surround me
The choices are endless
Baby why do you hound me

I drive to the hillside
Past city illusion
Look down at my hotel
All in slowest motion

In Brazil
The eyes of love are on you
Imbecile
The highs are right above you

Some guy knocked at the door today
He said, 'Have you seen this person recently?'
I said, 'No, have you?'
And he said, 'No, sir, that's why I'm looking for him'

It's winter on the balcony of trees
It's winter in the almanac of the stars
Another car goes past
But I understand at least in Brazil
Nothing can ever last

 

East Side West Side

[rev. May 31, 2014]

East side, west side, inside
There must be an easier way, okay
A fear of something finished today

Your side, my side, this side
There must be another solution
Don't believe in Creation or Evolution

Take me, wake me, shake me
Must be an easier way, hey
Lying here lyin' to myself all day

Rip me, burn me, steal me
Wish sometimes it was over
Don't believe in chaos or old Jehovah

And when all of this is over
And when all of this is done
I just wanna have some fun

And when all of this is over
And when all of this is done
I just wanna have some fun

Now tell me lately [2:20]
How you've never been lonely
Since I fell off my cloud

It's so funny
How the clowns that surround you
Do you proud

Though tell me lately [2:48]
How you've never been lonely
Since I fell off my cloud

It's so funny
How the clowns that surround you
Make you a flower [3:08]

 

A Better Day

[rev. May 31, 2014]

Give me something to do
It'll give me something to say
Now that you're gone away
Give me something to say
When someone comes over to play
Someone looking for you

Give me something to think
It'll give me something to see
Give me something to feel
When someone comes over to deal
I guess I'll just spin the wheel
'Cos it'll give me something to feel
Give me something to do
Whenever I'm thinking about you

All those things that came true
It gives me something to do
It gives me something to dream
It gives me something to be
Whenever I think of thee
Whenever I see your frame
Whenever I feel all this pain

Am I ever gonna see you again
I should just walk away again
'Cause it'll give me something to do
There's nothing that's pulling me through
Just wanna think about you

 

All The World

[rev. May 31, 2014]

You are my haven and my home
Your healing hands upon my head
A divine player and my Big Bang
Because more is done than said

If you ever come back here
I offer you my bed
If you ever feel a fear
My tear is what you shed

All the world is falling
For this time it couldn't come
All this time is calling
For the world it couldn't come

All the world is falling
For this time it couldn't come
All this time is calling
For the world it couldn't come

If you ever come back here
I offer you my bed
If you ever feel a fear
My tear is what you shed

All the world is falling
For this time it couldn't come
All this time is calling
For the world it couldn't come

 

Brother Moon Sister Sun

Brother moon sister sun
Darkness and light come from one
No one can say which is stronger
They both must exist with each other

And I'm loving them for who they are not what they do
May goodness and mercy follow your whole life through

And I'm loving them for who they are not what they do
May goodness and mercy follow your whole life through

And don't forget to use your gifts (use your gifts)
Love your life, don't be afraid (don't be afraid)
Life can be fast, love can be swift (love can be swift)
And wishes uncertain and memories fade

And I'm loving them for who they are not what they do
May goodness and mercy follow your whole life through

And I'm loving them for who they are not what they do
May goodness and mercy follow your whole life through

Brother moon sister sun
Darkness and light come from one

 

Can't Get Free

[rev. May 31, 2014]

And you coming on to me
Don't spare the luxury
And you coming up to me
What did you really see

And you running into me
Don't mind the injury
And you running up to me
Don't be abrupt with me

And you putting up with me
Give me security
And you putting in with me
Livin' in sin with me
You've never been with me

Everybody says it
Everybody know
You can't get free
If you don't let go
If you don't let go

You staying out with me
Thank you for doubting me
You staying up with me
Then you wake up with me

Everybody says it
Everybody know
You can't get free
If you don't let go
If you don't let go

Everybody says it
Everybody know
You can't get free
If you don't let go
If you don't let go
If you don't let go

 

Finale

[rev. May 31, 2014]

Loneliness
One and only-ness
The sweetest icing
On the rising cake

Throw myself together for you
But then I break
Nothing left to begin
For your sake

Loveliness
Are you above all this
The nicest sugar
On the sweetest drop

Up my speed towards
And then I stop

No command for nothing
Nothing else to begin
Nothing planned for nothing
For the chop




Don't Forget Me

[Extra Track on the Lorelei EP]

[rev. July 24, 2013]

(1-2-3)

It took a long time to course here
You shouldn't force here
I wouldn't really endorse here
Maybe you're lost here

It took a lifetime to get free
Please don't forget me
You were the creature I set free
Please don't infect me

Because I've been up and down and around again
On them yonder hills, them hills in the sky
'Cause I think a little river woman blowing along
And I'm singing this song even though it's wrong

Please don't forget me (Please don't forget me)
Please don't infect me (Please don't infect me)
Please don't forget me (Please don't forget me)
Please don't infect me (Please don't infect me)

It took a long time to procure
Have faith in the future
I hope you can endure
The way that you injure

'Cause I run around in circles, see the black on white
And I summons here, I summons there
And I bric and brac and dominac the wrong paw puss
I'm just about in heaven when my seventh life runs out

(Please don't forget me) Please don't forget me
(Please don't infect me) Please don't infect me
(Please don't forget me) Please don't forget me
(Please don't infect me) Please don't infect me
(Please don't forget me)
(Please don't infect me)
(Please don't forget me)
