    "Wake Me Up When September Ends"

    Summer has come and passed
    The innocent can never last
    wake me up when September ends

    like my father's come to pass
    seven years has gone so fast
    wake me up when September ends

    here comes the rain again
    falling from the stars
    drenched in my pain again
    becoming who we are

    as my memory rests
    but never forgets what I lost
    wake me up when September ends

    summer has come and passed
    the innocent can never last
    wake me up when September ends

    ring out the bells again
    like we did when spring began
    wake me up when September ends

    here comes the rain again
    falling from the stars
    drenched in my pain again
    becoming who we are

    as my memory rests
    but never forgets what I lost
    wake me up when September ends

    Summer has come and passed
    The innocent can never last
    wake me up when September ends

    like my father's come to pass
    twenty years has gone so fast
    wake me up when September ends
    wake me up when September ends
    wake me up when September ends

    "Away From The Sun"

    It's down to this
    I've got to make this life make sense
    Can anyone tell what I've done
    I miss the life
    I miss the colours of the world
    Can anyone tell where I am

    'Cause now again I've found myself
    So far down, away from the sun
    That shines into the darkest place
    I'm so far down, away from the sun again
    Away from the sun again

    I'm over this
    I'm tired of living in the dark
    Can anyone see me down here
    The feeling's gone
    There's nothing left to lift me up
    Back into the world I know

    And now again I've found myself
    So far down, away from the sun
    That shines into the darkest place
    I'm so far down, away from the sun
    That shines to light the way for me
    To find my way back into the arms
    That care about the ones like me
    I'm so far down, away from the sun again

    It's down to this
    I've got to make this life make sense
    And now I can't tell what I've done

    And now again I've found myself
    So far down, away from the sun
    That shines to light the way for me

    'Cause now again I've found myself
    So far down, away from the sun
    That shines into the darkest place
    I'm so far down, away from the sun
    That shines to light the way for me
    To find my way back into the arms
    That care about the ones like me
    I'm so far down, away from the sun again

    Oh no...
    Yeah...
    I'm gone...

    "Loser"

    Breathe in right away,
    Nothing seems to fill this place
    I need this every time,
    Take your lies get off my case
    Someday I will find a love
    That flows through me like this
    This will fall away,
    this will fall away
    Youre getting closer to pushing me
    Off of lifes little edge
    Cause Im a loser
    And sooner or later
    You know Ill be dead
    Youre getting closer,
    Youre holding the rope,
    I'm taking the fall
    Cause Im a loser, Im a loser, yeah
    This is getting old,
    I cant break these chains that I hold
    My bodys growing cold,
    Theres nothin left of this mind
    Or my soul
    Addiction needs a pacifier,
    The buzz of this poison is taking me higher
    This will fall away,
    This will fall away
    Youre getting closer, to pushing me
    Off of lifes little edge
    Cause Im a loser and sooner or later
    You know Ill be dead
    Youre getting closer,
    Youre holding the rope and
    Im taking the fall
    Cause Im a loser
    Youre getting closer, to pushing me
    Off of lifes little edge
    Cause Im a loser and sooner or later
    You know Ill be dead
    Youre getting closer,
    Youre holding the rope
    And Im taking the fall
    Cause Im a loser

    "Duck And Run"

    To this world I'm unimportant
    Just because I have nothing to give
    So you call this your free country
    Tell me why it cost so much to live
    Tell me why
    This world can turn me down
    But I wont turn away, oh no
    I wont turn around
    All my work and endless measures
    Never seem to get me very far
    Walk a mile just to move an inch
    Now even though I'm trying so damn hard
    I'm trying so hard
    This world can turn me down but I
    Wont turn away
    And I wont duck and run, cause
    I'm not built that way
    When everything is gone there is
    Nothing there to fear
    This world cannot bring me down
    No cause I'm already here, oh no!
    I am already here,
    Down on my knees
    I am already here, on no, I am
    Already here
    I must have told you a thousand times,
    I am not running away
    I wont duck and run
    I wont duck and run
    I wont duck and run
    No pass away
    This world can turn me down but I
    Wont turn away
    And I wont duck and run, cause
    I'm not built that way
    When everything is gone
    There is nothing there to fear
    This world cannot bring me down
    No cause I'm already here
    This world can turn me down
    But I wont turn away
    And I wont duck and run
    Cause I'm not built that way
    When everything is gone there
    Is nothing there to fear
    This world cannot bring me down
    No cause I'm already here

    "When I'm Gone"

    There's another world inside of me
    That you may never see
    There're secrets in this life
    That I can't hide
    Somewhere in this darkness
    There's a light that I can't find
    Maybe it's too far away...
    Or maybe I'm just blind...

    Or maybe I'm just blind...

    [Chorus]
    So hold me when I'm here
    Right me when I'm wrong
    Hold me when I'm scared
    And love me when I'm gone
    Everything I am
    And everything in me
    Wants to be the one
    You wanted me to be
    I'll never let you down
    Even if I could
    I'd give up everything
    If only for your good
    So hold me when I'm here
    Right me when I'm wrong
    You can hold me when I'm scared
    You won't always be there
    So love me when I'm gone

    Love me when I'm gone...

    When your education X-Ray
    Cannot see under my skin
    I won't tell you a damn thing
    That I could not tell my friends
    Roaming through this darkness
    I'm alive but I'm alone
    Part of me is fighting this
    But part of me is gone

    [Chorus]

    Or maybe I'm just blind...

    [Chorus]

    Love me when I'm gone...

    Love me when I'm gone
    When I'm Gone
    When I'm Gone
    When I'm Gone

    "So I Need You"

    If you could step
    into my head, tell
    Me would you still know me
    If you woke up in my bed,
    Tell me then would you hold me
    Or would you simply let it lie,
    Leaving me to wonder why
    I cant get you out of this head
    I call mine
    And I will say
    Oh no I cant let you go,
    My little girl
    Because youre holding up my world,
    So I need you
    Your imitation of my walk
    And the perfect way you talk
    Its just a couple of the million things
    That I love about you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    And if I jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge,
    Tell me would you still follow me
    And if I made you mad today,
    Tell me would you love me tomorrow?
    Please
    Or would you say that you dont care,
    And then leave me standing here
    Like the fool who is drowning in despair
    And screamin
    Oh no I cant let you go,
    My little girl
    Because youre holding up my world,
    So I need you
    Your imitation of my walk
    And the perfect way you talk
    Its just a couple of the million
    Things that I love about you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    Im on my own
    Im on my own
    Im on my own
    Oh no I cant let you go,
    My little girl
    Because youre holding up my world,
    So I need you
    Your imitation of my walk
    And the perfect way you talk
    Its just a couple of the million things
    That I love about you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you!

    "Goodbyes"

    [Verse]
    There's so much that I would say if I could see you one last time.
    But now I can't 'cause you're not here but you're always on my mind.
    When I look up and you're not there, when I lie awake at night
    All these things I ask myself and I don't know why.

    [Chorus]
    (When it's the first time)
    When is the first time that you'll never see someone again?
    (When it's the last time)
    When it's the last time you weren't ready for it to end?
    When will I leave you standing alone there in the dark?
    (It's never easy)
    They're never easy but sometimes, goodbyes are so hard, they're so hard.

    [Chorus]
    When it's the first time that you'll never see someone again?
    When it's the last time you weren't ready for it to end?
    When will I leave you standing alone there in the dark?
    They're never easy but sometimes goodbyes are so hard, they're so hard.

    [Verse]
    I look ahead but can't move on, I look back but I can't stay.
    And I keep tryin to be strong, but this pain, it won't go away.
    And I hope this will heal in time 'cause I can't go on like this,
    And right now I would give my life for one last kiss.

    [Chorus]
    (When it's the first time)
    When is the first time that you'll never see someone again?
    (When it's the last time)
    When it's the last time you weren't ready for it to end?
    When will I leave you standing alone there in the dark?
    (It's never easy)
    They're never easy but sometimes, goodbyes are so hard, they're so hard.

    [Bridge]
    You'll be there on my mind, standing in the sunshine.

    [Chorus]
    (When it's the first time)
    When it's the first time that you'll never see someone again?
    (When it's the last time)
    When it's the last time you weren't ready for it to end?
    When will I leave you standing alone there in the dark?
    (It's never easy)
    They're never easy but sometimes, goodbyes are so hard, they're so hard.

    Seems the world's in the dark
    use the match, make a spark!
    the flame roars, so yellow n' bright
    I say just not used to the light
    we just a'int goin' down
    racin' through this life like a town

    [chorus]

    Don't hurry so
    as you never do know
    just where you're headed
    those instincts embedded
    within our own mind
    forward we're blind
    but don't dare look behind

    tearin' through those thoughts
    shreddin' our lonely fears
    When there's only that one light
    what happens when, when it goes out
    when it goes out, when it goes out...

    [chorus]

    Don't hurry so
    as you never do know
    just where you're headed
    those instincts embedded
    within our own mind
    forward we're blind
    but don't dare look behind

    Look back, forget them
    look forward, but can't move, can't go
    I, I'm stuck in this torture
    You locked me up threw away the key
    don't do this let me be
    the way I always wanted to
    got the burn to the third degree
    and I'm just so lost here in the dark

    Save me,
    save small ol' me...

    thanks! :-D

    "Iris"

    And I'd give up forever to touch you
    'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
    You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
    And I don't wanna go home right now

    And all I can taste is this moment
    And all I can breathe is your life
    When sooner or later it's over
    I just don't wanna miss you tonight

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's made to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am

    And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
    Or the moment of truth in your lies
    When everything feels like the movies
    Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's made to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's made to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am

    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's made to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am

    I just want you to know who I am
    I just want you to know who I am
    I just want you to know who I am

    "Say Something"

    Say something, I'm giving up on you
    I'll be the one, if you want me to
    Anywhere I would've followed you
    Say something, I'm giving up on you

    And I am feeling so small
    It was over my head
    I know nothing at all

    And I will stumble and fall
    I'm still learning to love
    Just starting to crawl

    Say something, I'm giving up on you
    I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
    Anywhere I would've followed you
    Say something, I'm giving up on you

    And I will swallow my pride
    You're the one that I love
    And I'm saying goodbye

    Say something, I'm giving up on you
    And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
    And anywhere I would've followed you (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
    Say something, I'm giving up on you

    Say something, I'm giving up on you
    Say something...

    "It's Not Over"

    I was blown away.
    What could I say?
    It all seemed to make sense.
    You've taken away everything,
    And I can't deal with that.
    I try to see the good in life,
    But good things in life are hard to find.
    We'll blow it away, blow it away.
    Can we make this something good?
    Well, I'll try to do it right this time around.

    Let's start over.
    I'll try to do it right this time around.
    It's not over.
    'Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground.
    This love is killing me,
    But you're the only one.
    It's not over.

    Taken all I could take,
    And I cannot wait.
    We're wasting too much time
    Being strong, holding on.
    Can't let it bring us down.
    My life with you means everything,
    So I won't give up that easily.
    I'll blow it away, blow it away.
    Can we make this something good?
    'Cause it's all misunderstood.
    Well, I'll try to do it right this time around.

    Let's start over.
    I'll try to do it right this time around.
    It's not over.
    'Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground.
    This love is killing me,
    But you're the only one.
    It's not over.

    We can't let this get away.
    Let it out, let it out.
    Don't get caught up in yourself.
    Let it out.

    Let's start over.
    I'll try to do it right this time around.
    It's not over.
    'Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground.
    This love is killing me,
    But you're the only one.
    It's not over.

    Let's start over.
    It's not over, yeah...
    This love is killing me,
    But you're the only one.
    It's not over.

    "Breakeven"

    I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
    Just prayed to a God that I don't believe in
    'Cause I got time while she got freedom
    'Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don't break even

    Her best days were some of my worst
    She finally met a man that's gonna put her first
    While I'm wide awake she's no trouble sleeping
    'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break even... even... no

    What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you?
    And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're OK?
    I'm falling to pieces, yeah,
    I'm falling to pieces

    They say bad things happen for a reason
    But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding
    'Cause she's moved on while I'm still grieving
    And when a heart breaks no it don't break even, even... no

    What am I gonna do when the best part of me was always you?
    And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're OK?
    I'm falling to pieces, yeah,
    I'm falling to pieces, yeah,
    I'm falling to pieces
    (One still in love while the other one's leaving)
    I'm falling to pieces
    ('Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break even)

    Oh, you got his heart and my heart and none of the pain
    You took your suitcase, I took the blame.
    Now I'm tryna make sense of what little remains, ooh
    'Cause you left me with no love and honour to my name.

    I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
    Just prayed to a God that I don't believe in
    'Cause I got time while she got freedom
    'Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don't break...
    No, it don't break
    No, it don't break even, no

    What am I gonna do when the best part of me was always you?
    And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're OK?
    (Oh glad you're okay now)
    I'm falling to pieces, yeah
    I'm falling to pieces, yeah
    (Oh I'm falling, falling)
    I'm falling to pieces,
    (One still in love while the other one's leaving)
    I'm falling to pieces
    ('Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don't break even)

    Oh, it don't break even no
    Oh, it don't break even no
    Oh, it don't break even no

    "Paradise"

    When she was just a girl
    She expected the world
    But it flew away from her reach
    So she ran away in her sleep
    Dreamed of para- para- paradise
    Para- para- paradise
    Para- para- paradise
    Every time she closed her eyes
    Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh

    When she was just a girl
    She expected the world
    But it flew away from her reach
    And the bullets catch in her teeth

    Life goes on
    It gets so heavy
    The wheel breaks the butterfly
    Every tear, a waterfall
    In the night, the stormy night
    She closed her eyes
    In the night, the stormy night
    Away she'd fly.

    And dreamed of para- para- paradise
    Para- para- paradise
    Para- para- paradise
    Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh

    She dreamed of para- para- paradise
    Para- para- paradise
    Para- para- paradise
    Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.

    La la la La
    La la la

    So lying underneath those stormy skies.
    She said oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.
    I know the sun must set to rise.

    This could be para- para- paradise
    Para- para- paradise
    This could be para- para- paradise
    Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.

    This could be para- para- paradise
    Para- para- paradise
    Could be para- para- paradise
    Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.

    This could be para- para- paradise
    Para- para- paradise
    Could be para- para- paradise
    Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.

    Oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo

    "Somebody That I Used To Know"
    (feat. Kimbra)

    [Gotye:]
    Now and then I think of when we were together
    Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
    Told myself that you were right for me
    But felt so lonely in your company
    But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

    You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
    Like resignation to the end, always the end
    So when we found that we could not make sense
    Well you said that we would still be friends
    But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
    And I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
    No you didn't have to stoop so low
    Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
    I guess that I don't need that though
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    Now you're just somebody that I used to know
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    [Kimbra:]
    Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
    But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
    But I don't wanna live that way
    Reading into every word you say
    You said that you could let it go
    And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

    [Gotye:]
    But you didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
    And I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
    No you didn't have to stoop so low
    Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
    I guess that I don't need that though
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    [x2]
    Somebody
    (I used to know)
    Somebody
    (Now you're just somebody that I used to know)

    (I used to know)
    (That I used to know)
    (I used to know)
    Somebody
