Genius (Never Came Through) – Duncan Sheik

Clearly I’m a genius
If she only knew it
but somewhere in her radius
I really blew it
I know, I know what I said to her
and I know what I did
What I don’t know is how I could ever be
so incredibly stupid

[CHORUS:]

(you don’t really need to know every last detail.
Its hardly worth telling
suffice to say I said that I would be there
i never came through)

Maybe I’m a genius and
she just don’t see it
I fronted,
I should have admitted,
she saw right through it
I never thought that I could be
so underhanded.
somehow I’ve cornered the market on
the double standard

[CHORUS]

For this act of genius
and so many others
I know I should apologize
and see how it goes

what am I waiting for?
come on, come on, come on, come on

sha la la la la la sha la la la la la la la

to all of the geniuses…

[CHORUS]

Such Reveries – Duncan Sheik

you and I in the room with the balcony
you lie on the bed while I stare at the sea
I stare at the sea
on such reveries

and we’re riding the ponies in Mexico.
the moonlight leaps through the palm tree groves
oh, wouldn’t you know?
we’re in Mexico

yes all of these things, all of these things
they are such reveries, ohh
all of these things, all of these things
they are such reveries

the oceans waves loomed as large as could be
they threw us below but you held onto me
yeah, you held onto me
oh such reveries

’cause you are my treasure, a love that astounds
the end of my searches, my looking around
no more looking around
a love that astounds.

yes all of these things, all of these things
they are such reveries, ohh
all of these things, all of these things
they are such reveries

but don’t listen to me,
it’s my imagination
I don’t even know you
it never happened
just dreams in slow motion
they never happened
all that I told you
it never happened ever

’cause all of these things, all of these things
they are just reveries, ohh
all of these things, all of these things
they are just reveries
yes all of these things, all of these things
they are just reveries, ohh
all of these things, all of these things
they are just reveries

so many visions still to see
and many travails before I may sleep
but then when I sleep
oh such reveries

Start Again – Duncan Sheik

Peace has lost its meaning
now we’ve hit the ceiling
all is said and all is done
here goes start again

You’re better than you think so
something I hold onto
I’m better too holding on to you
start again

[CHORUS:]

(So meet me and we’ll drive this car away
we can leave right now what do you say
we’ll head out for the wide and open spaces
if we can clear the way)

Save yourself don’t save me
save the one you may be
let it be the best that it can be
start again

[CHORUS (X2)]

Shine Inside – Duncan Sheik

Are you aware? when you just stare,
for hours, into the sky
what do you see? can you show it to me
the beauty…

I can see you shine inside
I want to see the world – see it in a new light
I can feel your spirit rise
I want to see the world through your eyes

I watch you breathe, sitting under the tree
the peace that you find
you take my hand, waves crash on the sand
what’s done – left behind

I can see you shine inside
I want to see the world – see it in a new light
I can feel your spirit rise
how it shines

scene changes, rearranges
oh nature’s song
the river is fire the river is water
the river is sweet sweet wine

is it the time? is there a sign?
how do I find your state of mind

I can see you shine inside
I want to see the world – see it in a new light
I can feel your spirit rise
how it shines

scene changes, rearranges
oh nature’s song
I’m seeing, I’m believing
I’m feeling strong
the river is fire, the river is water
the river is sweet, sweet wine
the river is moving, moving through me
the river it shines inside
