"My Paper Made Men" (2008)

Sad, Sad World lyrics - amy studt

Come say hello to me
When you're in town
I know you're crazy about me
And want me around

You move in closer
When you should run away
A little rabbit in my hunting game
And I got perfect aim

What a sad, sad world it is
When we take pleasure in others' demise
And in this sad, sad world we live
We push down others to stay alive

Flattery has me endeared to you
As any flesh and blood would
You say you'd be good to me
Well so you should

I'm not that girl anymore
She went away
Now I'm the one with the game
And I won't be played

What a sad, sad world it is
When we delight in spinning our lies
And in this sad, sad world we live
We kick and spit just to stay alive

Oh what a sad, sad world it is yeah
What a sad, sad world it is yeah
Oh what a sad, sad world yeah
Ssshhh

But when it comes that I get tired of games
Will you still be around
I think you know that when the light is shined below
Then you will see
The monster that I am
You will run away
They always do

I might keep you around
If you behave
I like you crawling
My little boy slave

What a sad, sad world it is
When we're excited by somebody's pain
And in this sad, sad world we live
I'm in the middle I'm not afraid

Oh what a sad, sad world yeah
What a sad, sad world
What a sad, sad world it is
Yeah
Ssshhh

She Ran lyrics - amy studt

Just a girl in a photograph
Wearing the dress that I wear now
A pretty face in fields of grey
It's sad to see that nothing seems to change

She's running from the boy in the schoolyard
She's running through the field to the open barn
They're laughing as the sun dances round her
A little life within her takes it place inside her starts to grow

She cuts the seams of a favourite frock
She sits and listens to the old church clock
Oh daddy daddy don't send me away
Never been a bad girl I swear that nothing's changed

She's running from the face of her father
She's running from the silence in a crowded room
She's running from the ring that he gave her
The leaded sound of promises
The feeling that's inside her starts to grow

A dark day becomes a cold, cold night
A fading light to bear a newborn life
Two voices fade into one
She closed her eyes with the rising sun

She's running to the arms of an angel
She's running from the only place she's ever known
She's running with her heart left behind her
They knew when they found her that they just couldn't hurt her anymore

She's running from the face of her father
She's running from the silence in a crowded room
She's running from the ring that he gave her
They knew when they found her that they just couldn't hurt her anymore

Just a girl in a photograph
Wearing the dress that I wear now
A pretty face in fields of grey
It's sad to see that nothing seems to change

Furniture lyrics - amy studt

I am only flesh and bones,
Splintered glass and tattered clothes,
behind the skin, my fragility,
behind the skin, a skeletal impracticality,
I am only pieces of you,
held together with paper glue,
behind the skin, my divinity
behind the skin, my only sanctuary.

You can lean on me, have a drink on me,
leave your mark all over me,
paint the outside 'till it smiles,
you can eat off me, rest your head on me,
press yourself on top of me,
kick the back until its quiet.

All in all I'm just furniture,
Just another piece taking you one step further from the perfect living room set,
All in all I'm just furniture,
In these 4 walls that hold me, keep me safe under sound and bare within its grip.

My wooden heart it sings no more,
This dress I wear becomes the floor,
behind the skin, a living, breathing thing,
behind the skin, a place you've never been.

You can lean on me, have a drink on me,
leave your mark all over me,
paint the outside 'till it smiles,
you can eat off me, rest your head on me,
press yourself on top of me,
kick the back until its quiet.

All in all I'm just furniture,
Just another piece taking you one step further from the perfect living room set,
All in all I'm just furniture,
In these 4 walls that hold me, keep me safe under sound and bare within its grip.

I am only flesh and bones,
Splintered glass and tattered clothes.

She Walks Beautiful lyrics - amy studt

She walks alone and when she loves, her love's so wrong
She don't need a man
She won't stand by what she can't stand
Like why like in wars you all stand in line
Now watch her pass you by
She knows her sins with humility
And reaches for the light

With aching knees and back the way is hard to bear
but she carries it with a smile
She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful
she walks beautiful by herself
She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful
she walks beautiful by herself

She walks alone
she's not invited to parties
so she's just alone
All alone
to feel the high she bears the lows

She doesn't call out like the others in the night
in despair and loneliness
She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful
she walks beautiful by herself
She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful
she walks beautiful by herself

Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh
Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh
Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh
Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh
Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh

She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful
she walks beautiful by herself

Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh
Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh
Ayaheaheah (Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh)
She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful
she walks beautiful by herself
She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful
she walks beautiful by herself
She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful
she walks beautiful by herself
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

One Last Cigarette lyrics - amy studt

I forget who you are
and you love me
and I'm not used to being hard
It's too much for me

So I'll let it all lie
So let's smoke one last cigarette together
And let it burn
Just one last taste to make it last forever
And let it burn right to the end

You forget who I am
and you almost convince me
I was somebody special, somebody good
and you and I can feel us dying
So let's smoke one last cigarette together
And let it burn
Just one last taste to make it last forever
And let it burn right to the end

You can't be the hero
Stop trying to make this something
You'll never be
You can't just fix this
With the softness of your heart
You can't stand there, telling me that it'll be alright
Nothing's alright, nothing's alright

I forget who you are
and you almost convince me
you can take me as I am

Nice Boys lyrics - amy studt

Never had a man who can
Always had to do it for myself
Never had a master plan
That involved anybody else
Who needs monogamy
When there's no doubt
And you don't ask
Who needs compromise
When there's no fear
That it won't last

And all the good boys they don't cut it
And all the nice boys with Christian smiles
They just can't reach it

Guess it's right what they say
Nice boys finish last (Nice boys finish last)
Too easy to swallow, too happy, too hollow
Nice boys finish last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last, they don't last, last

Never had a man who can
It's not about what's safe and good for you
Sitting there with threads of love
Held up by heart and heaven knew

And all the good boys they don't cut it
And all the nice boys with Christian smiles
They just can't reach it

Guess it's right what they say
Nice boys finish last
Too easy to swallow, too happy, too hollow
Nice boys finish last
Nice boys, nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last, they don't last, last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last, they don't last, last

Happy you, unhappy me
I walk with glass, you walk with sand
Life's too short and goes too fast
Nice boys, nice boys, nice boys, nice boys
Nice boys finish last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last, they don't last, last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last, they don't last, last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last, they don't last, last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last, they don't last, last

They don't last, they don't last, last, last, last
They don't last, they don't last, last, last, last

Nice boys
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last, they don't last, last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last
Nice boys they don't last, they don't last, last

Walking Out lyrics - amy studt

You say that you're leaving
You give me your reasons
I can tell by your voice that
you're not alone, alone
Is she out in the hallway
As you're taking your love away
Hearing every word I say
Try to fight, find reasons why
But you don't hear a word I say, no

Time's run out
I'm walking out, I'm walking out
Time to find some peace of mind
I'm walking out
(I'm walking out, I'm walking out)

You come 'round to see me
You say that you've been missing me
I can tell by your face what
you came here for
You say that it's over,
and that you never knew her
but all this time you thought of me, yeah

Do I look blind
I think you'll find
that I deserve much more than this
No, time's run out
I'm walking out, I'm walking out
(I'm walking out, I'm walking out)
Time to find some peace of mind
I'm walking out
(I'm walking out, I'm walking out)
Dodododadadada Dodododadadada
Dodododadadada Dodododadadada
Dodododadadada Dodododadadada
Dodododadadada

Hee-ah, hee-ah, hee-yo
Hee-ah, hee-ah, hee-yo
Hee-ah, hee-ah, hee-yo
Hee-ah, hee-ah, hee-yo
Hee-ah, hee-ah, hee-yo
Hee-ah, hee-ah, hee-yo
Hee-ah, hee-ah, hee-yo
Hee-ah, hee-ah, hee-yo

Time's run out
I'm walking out, I'm walking out
I'm walking out
Time to find some peace of mind
I'm walking out
(I'm walking out, I'm walking out)

Time's run out
I'm walking out, I'm walking out
(I'm walking out, I'm walking out)
Time to find some peace of mind
I'm walking out
(I'm walking out, I'm walking out)

Chasing The Light lyrics - amy studt

Don't go outside
'Cause you never know, you never know-oh-oh
You never know-oh-oh, know-oh-oh
Don't wear that dress tonight
'Cause you never know, you never know-oh-oh
You never know-oh-oh, know-oh-oh

Why go through life with eyes wide shut
Here comes the sting of pain again
Just open up and let it in
That's when the healing can begin
Chasing the light
And when you stay away from dreams
Your world is never what it seems
The end is falling into reach
Chasing the light

Better hold on tight
'Cause you never know, you never know-oh-oh
You never know-oh-oh, know-oh-oh
Don't sober up tonight
'Cause you never know, you never know-oh-oh
And everything is for show
and everybody is so cold

Don't go through life with eyes wide shut
Here comes the sting of pain again
Just open up and let it in
That's when the healing can begin
Chasing the light
And when you stay away from dreams
Your world is never what it seems
The end is falling into reach
Chasing the light

And when you stay away from dreams
Your world is never what it seems
The end is falling into reach
The end is falling into reach
The end is falling into reach

Here comes the sting of pain again
Just open up and let it in
That's when the healing can begin
Chasing the light
And when you stay away from dreams
Your world is never what it seems
The end is falling into reach
Chasing the light

Chasing the light, chasing the light

Paper Made Men lyrics - amy studt

Take a needle push it in starting with the eye.
For ever time they wandered and every time they lied.
Take a needle push it stick it through the hands,
For every time the smoothered me for failing your demands.

That Voodoo you do, comes back threefold on you
That voodoo you do, my paper-made man. (my paper made man)

Take a needle push it in press through his tongue,
For ever time he told me that he loved me and whispered me i'm done.

That Voodoo you do, comes back threefold on you
That Voodoo you do, oh no oh no oh no (comes back threefold on you)
That Voodoo you do, comes back threefold on you
That voodoo you do, my paper-made man. (my paper made man)

ee ai ai oh etc

Take a need it push it in press it through his heart,

That Voodoo you do, comes back threefold on you
That Voodoo you do, oh no
That Voodoo you do, comes back threefold on you
That voodoo you do, my paper-made man.

Here Lies Love lyrics - amy studt

The end of the greatest love
All for nothing and nothing for all
The end of the greatest love
Oh no, oh no

Darling, here lies love
Love that once was brave and bold now lies still and cold
Our song, play on
Our song
Con Brio and out of key
It has the sweetest melody, melody, melody, melody

A verbis ad verbera
Ab Hinc
Amare et sapere vix deo conceditur
Amor Ordinem Nescit
Aeternum vale
Aeternum vale
Aeternum vale

In his eyes and on his lips
There lies the love of a thousand years
Here lies love

Foolish Heart lyrics - amy studt

Slowly on this wall
I can’t move or else I fall
Just as you push me
I think of how blind I’ve been
All my demons and all my angels
couldn’t stick me back together again

You sacked me
and say you’ll do me no harm
then you kick me
while you bring me along for my rescue
you sabotage me again
all I’ve been through
you said that you were my friend
now time to pick up all the pieces
of my foolish heart

foolish heart

go back to the hole
the one which you crawled out from
defend yourself
you better learn to
all your demons and all your angels
won’t be able to stick you back together again

You sacked me
and say you’ll do me no harm
then you kick me
while you bring me along for my rescue
you sabotage me again
all I’ve been through
you said that you were my friend
now time to pick up all the pieces
of my foolish heart

You better sleep with one eye open
You better cash in all your tokens
Time to scream what can’t be spoken
You better leave before something gets broken

You gotta leave them now
no, no, no, no, no-oh

(?)

You sacked me
and say you’ll do me no harm
then you kick me
while you bring me along for my rescue
you sabotage me again
all I’ve been through
you said that you were my friend
now time to pick up all the pieces
of my foolish heart

The Lucky Ones lyrics - amy studt

One last chance to say the word we never said
One last dance with you might help me to forget.
There’ll be no mourners slowly trudging through the rain
But we won’t be alone and never will again.

We are the lucky ones in the final days of the dying sun,
Move across the shifting sands
‘cos there’s nothing left to lose.
We are the lucky ones with no regrets
when tomorrow comes.
And I could let it all slip away if I could share this last dance with you.

One last requiem of love straight from my heart
As the seams begin to stretch and pull apart.
Bathe in the memories of all that you have ever seen;
So strange when you face the end
You’re more alive than you’ve ever been.
Isn’t it wonderful, isn’t it beautiful.

We are the lucky ones
And we don’t know if tomorrow will ever come
We are the lucky ones,
No, no, no, no.

"False Smiles" (2003)

Just A Little Girl lyrics - amy studt

Sometimes I feel you’re not listening
Sometimes I feel you don’t understand
But I think I’ve got the answer
Already know what you’re gonna say

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see
But there’s a hell of a lot more to me
Don’t ever underestimate what I can do
Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be

You say I’m just a little girl, just a little girl
How can I compare? What do I know?
What have I got to share?
But there’s nothing in this world, nothing in this world
That could hold me down, can’t you hear me?
Don’t you understand
That I wanna be myself, wanna be the girl,
Wanna be the one that you can rely on
How I wish that you could see all there is of me
How I long to hear that you take me
For who I am

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see
But there’s a hell of a lot more to me
Don’t ever underestimate what I can do
Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see
But there’s a hell of a lot more to me
Don’t ever underestimate what I can do
Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be

Sometimes I feel you’re not listening
Sometimes I feel you don’t understand

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see
But there’s a hell of a lot more to me
Don’t ever underestimate what I can do
Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see
But there’s a hell of a lot more to me
Don’t ever underestimate what I can do
Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be
