Strangeland – Keane

Lover I remember
Laying out a map
Throwing our possessions
In the van

Your tapes piled on the backseat
And a camera in your hand
Dressed for our arrival
In the Strangeland

Strangeland blind
You got no reason, you got no rhyme
You give no time
To put things right [x2]

You drove across the border
As the winter rains ran dry
And only fateful birdsong
Filled the sky

You threw your head back screaming
As we raced across wet sand
And lept into the waters
Of the Strangeland

Strangeland blind
You got no reason, you got no rhyme
You give no time
To put things right [x2]

You wound the rope around me
And you pulled the knots in tight
And shook me like a bad dream
From your sight

And now the things I’ve done to forget you
Well it’s not what I had planned
The sweetest thoughts get twisted
In the Strangeland

Strangeland blind
You got no reason, you got no rhyme
You give no time to put things right
To put things-

Strangeland dreams
You tore my baby away from me
We get no time
To put things right [x2]

You give no time
To put things right [x4]

Watch How You Go – Keane

The more we rush about, the less we do,
I never saw you drift away.
The more we spin around, the less we move,
I never saw your spirit break.

I wish that I could be your journey’s end
But you are only passing through, yeah.
It’s not for me to try to steer your way,
I wish you well in all you do.

Just say you’ll watch how you go,
Be gracious with your light
And may the years be kind now.
Just say you’ll mind how you roam,
The things that we have shared
Will soon be left behind now.

I hope you know that you’re a graceful soul,
You fill the room with hope and light.
It’s only right that you should go your way,
Cause nothing ever lasts that long.

Just say you’ll watch how you go,
Be gracious with your light
And may the years be kind now.
Just say you’ll mind how you roam,
The things that we have shared
Will soon be left behind now.
Behind now… behind now… behind now.

Just say you’ll watch how you go,
Be gracious with your light
And may the years be kind now.
Just say you’ll mind how you roam,
The things that we have shared
Will soon be left behind now.

Oooo, oooo, oooo, oooo, oooo,
The things that we have shared,
Will still remain behind now.

Broken Toy – Keane

I think you know
Because it’s old news
The people you love
Are hard to find
So I think if I
Were in your shoes
I would be kind

I look out for you
Come rain, come shine
What good does it do?
I guess I’m a toy that is broken
I guess we’re just older now

I want to stay
Another season
See summer upon
This sorry land
So don’t dust off your gun
Without a reason
You understand

I look out for you
Come rain, come shine
What good does it do?
I guess I’m a toy that is broken
I guess we’re just older now

Who says the river can’t leave its waters?
Who says you walk in a line?
Who says the city change its borders?
Who says you’re mine?

I look out for you
Come rain, come shine
What good does it do?
I guess I’m a record you’re tired of
I guess we’re just older now
I guess I’m a toy that is broken
I guess we’re just older now

Crystal Ball – Keane

Who is the man I see
Where I’m supposed to be?
I lost my heart, I buried it too deep
Under the iron sea

Oh, crystal ball, crystal ball
Save us all, tell me life is beautiful
Mirror, mirror on the wall

Lines ever more unclear
Not sure I’m even here
The more I look the more I think that I’m
Starting to disappear

Oh, crystal ball, crystal ball
Save us all, tell me life is beautiful
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Oh, crystal ball, hear my song
I’m fading out, everything I know is wrong
So put me where I belong

I don’t know where I am
And I don’t really care
I look myself in the eye
There’s no-one there
I fall upon the earth
I call upon the air
But all I get is the same old vacant stare

Oh, crystal ball, crystal ball
Save us all, tell me life is beautiful
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Oh, crystal ball, hear my song
I’m fading out, everything I know is wrong
So put me where I belong
