WHERE EVER YOU ARE I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY NOW

(Mäkelä)

"Well, I've had it this time, I'm at the end of my line
Yeah, I'll give up the fight
Well, I've been here before, but not this bad you know
But now I'll be just fine"

I don't know what you want
But I know that you can't get it from me

Where ever you are, what ever you do
I hope that you're happy now
I hope that you're happy now
What ever the reasons you had when you went
I hope that you're happy now
I hope that you're happy now

Now that everything has gone, somewhere all alone
Does it make the things all right?
What ever happened to you, turned things around for you
Made you so unwell

No need to stay here anymore
Happiness is always somewhere else

Whereever you are...

I hope that you're happy now,
with the world somehow,
where nobody knows your name
Happy now with the world somehow,
C'mon and call me again

Where ever you are...

WAITING FOR TUESDAY

(Lehdonkivi / Mäkelä)

Please disconnect the phone and lock the door,
I don't want no-one to come 'round here now at all
Pull down the curtains and turn out the light
Let's hide under the covers and pretend we're not alive
'Cause I'm not fit enough to face the world today
I wanna stay here inside and just hide
in my mind 'til it's all gone away

'Cause don't you know, that it's sunday again
another week has gone and went
Lie around here worse for fear I can't move or even think
Or what about monday then, worse still I'm afraid
Lie around and wait for tuesday

Do you think the world would cease to exist if we closed our eyes?
Do you think that anyone really cares if we live or die?
What do you think of when monday's here again
I don't wanna wake up and go out there and pretend
That I'm fit again to face the shit they throw
I don't wanna know, I wanna stay and just pray
That someday it has all gone away

But meanwhile it's just sunday again
Another week has gone and went
Lie around and curse myself, swallow all the shame
Or what about monday then, worse still I'm afraid
Oh god, I wish it was tuesday

And Sunday always comes around, television, rot my brain
Even if the sun would shine, I stay inside and empty my mind
(I've) Wasted days, far too wasted, sometimes it's too hard to try
And even though the days go slow, can't you see the years fly by

And then it's sunday again
Another weekend's gone and went
Lie around and stare at the ceiling all the same
What about Monday then, worse still I'm afraid
Lie around and wait for Tuesday
Oh, God I wish it was Tuesday
Lie around and wait for Tuesday
Oh, God I wish it was Tuesday

MILK TURNED SOUR

(Mäkelä)

Go on, say anything,
Say anything you've ever wanted to say
Go on, be anyone,
Be anyone you've ever wanted to be
For now's the time to speak your mind
Your last time in the light

For now, now's the time
When all your lights refuse to shine
And now, now's the hour
When all your milk has turned sour

Shine, while you still can,
'cause soon it will be too dark for anything
Light, all your candles
Last attempt to rescue everything
Say the words you want to say
'Cause today is the day

For now, now's the time...

Go on, say anything
Be anyone you've ever wanted to be
'Cause now's the time to speak your mind
And you'll find why you should lie

For now, now's the time...

IT COULD BE COOL TOMORROW

(Lehdonkivi / Mäkelä)

So you never wanna talk about it,
no matter how hard it gets
Well, that's all right,
I guess It's just the same in my life
An you never wanna talk about
anything that I like
New single's out, the album's
coming out any day now
And everyday I tell myself
That tomorrow might be fine
Then I won't mind, I won't mind at all

Tomorrow, is another day
might not change a thing
but it could be cool
tomorrow, we may never find a way
but stick around with me
to find out

Well, I never really talk about
anything real at all
Just what I read of other people's life you see
Cause I never wanna know about
what might happen if
If I find out what real life is all about
And tomorrow today's yesterday
And yesterdays are always gone
And I don't mind, I don't mind it now

Tomorrow, is another day...

Remember this

SUDDEN CHANGE

(Pelttari)

A quiet drink with quiet friends
I act the way I please
One for the road before the end
At ease

It's too much for me to take
too much

I know, I don't want to feel like this
Might as well admit it
Don't need a drink, I need a kiss
A sudden change
A pretty face
Turns my way and speaks to me

Don't want my home, I want yours
Don't want to sleep alone
We can leave and yes I live
alone

You'rew too good for me to lose
Too good

I ask you, you think about it silently
Just let loose
You can't get more sincere with me
Let's not fight it could be fun
We caught the best time we could find
It's not the light, not the sun
It's your eyes that make me blind
It's your eyes

And I don't want to sleep alone

WHISTLES IN THE BAG

(Lehdonkivi / Mäkelä)

Apathy kicks in real good,
the best drug you've had that's true
Why waste time on going out anymore
And it gets harder every time
to pretend that I don't mind it at all
A lack of faith, a lack of trust
And from us a lack of lust

This is my stop, thanks a lot
This is where I get off
How much do I owe, what's the cost
I would like to stay, but I think not
I'll put my whistles in the bag and fuck off

Ten people in, five people on
no-one's paid everyone goes home
Ain't life grand when you're so unknown
That no-one knows you when you're on your own
A lack of hope, a lack of love
And from me, all above

This is my stop...

Well, I guess that I could say
that you'll be sorry someday
but I'm not sure anymore
that that day will ever come

This is my stop...

SHOW ME TONIGHT

(Pelttari)

As I told you, you can call me
Any day you want
I'm not that much out of reach now
As dust has settled down

I know
Yes I do

Show me tonight

If you're really worth the effort
Won't you let me know
When you've got your heart all open
Well then, don't just go

I want
How I want you to

Show me tonight

I don't wanna hear from you
I bet you don't wanna hear from me

Show me tonight

CONVERSATION OVER

(Mäkelä)

And to think we fought so long and hard for this
So sad to see how everything just turns to shit
Jealousy and bitterness, they always work so well
The mirror on the wall is the one who could tell
The conversation's over and the silence is too loud
Who'd ever think we'd turn out so proud

For once in my life, I thought I was right
For once in my time I thought I knew
But once again this time, I found out I'm denied
Of everything good I understood

And don't get me wrong, I'm happy just like this
Who wouldn't like to dwell in their own shit
And truth just always hurts and lies are always lies
Silence is the key to better times

For once in my life...

Oo-oo, wasn't that good?
Oo-oo-oo, or was it not true?

For once in my life...

FAITH NO MORE

(Mäkelä)

I guess we're running out of space
We're running out of things to say
But you can't ignore what has been before
So don't close that door when you go

I guess I'm running out of time
Maybe I just should have spoken my mind
But it's hard to say how you feel today
And I'm not so sure of myself

And it's no way you will hear me say
I have faith no more in you

I guess I'm running out of ways
To try and tell it to your face
So now it's all hearsay, different people today
And we look and wish we'd still talk

And it's no way, you would hear me say
I have faith no more in you

And now that all has changed, we see what remained
I'm afraid that it's not that much

But it's no way, you would hear me say
I have faith no more in you
I have faith no more in you

I WANNA BE YOUR BOYFRIEND

(Mäkelä)

As I walk, as I walk, as I walk along the street
and my heart just skips a beat when I see you
And I know, and I know, and I know how the story goes
Infra red and overdosed on only you
See me, here now, all the time
Love me now while you're around

'Cause I wanna be your boyfriend now
And I wanna know where you're from
I wanna be your boyfriend now
Oh here she comes, here she comes

And I know, And I know, And I know how the story goes
Infrared and overdosed on only you
And I see, And I see, And I see how this will be
Broken hearted in misery, I will be
See me leave now, all the time
Love me now, while you're around

'Cause I wanna be your boyfriend now...

And I know everything about you
I know you through and through and through
But what is right, well who can say
What is good here anyway
But you can still hear me say

'Cause I wanna be your boyfriend...

'Cause I wanna be your boyfriend...

SPOTLIGHT. NOW!

(Mäkelä)

I've been around the world enough to know
what makes the world go around
And I can tell, the news ain't good
I've been laughed at, I've been backstabbed
there's been bad talks behind my back
I guess I took it bad, I won't be back

Think of all the time you've wasted
Think of how you have misplaced it
Think of everything you've hated
Now think of me

Stop right now, I want my spotlight now
I'm going down, I have no doubt

I've been about enough to know
what this is all about
And I don't wanna hear the news no more
I've been amused, I've been abused
I've been confused and I've been used
But I've got used to that and so should you

Think of all the times you waited
if someone only would have said it
Think of everyone you've hated
and think of me

Stop right now, I want my spotlight now...

It's not about what you want, it's all about what you get
But I know that if I tried hard enough then I could fly
But I know that right now
I'm too tired to try at all
I'm too tired to try at all

Stop right now, I want my spotlight now...

COOL SHADES

(Pelttari)

I wear my coolest shades
Hide my eyes from you
It gets easier with time
It slips away way too soon
If you should come my way
I would look right through

It's too hard to handle
way too hard
You know I can't stand it

Keep away you evil eye
I want to blow your cool

You pay me a visit
Your ass is mine
And you can kiss it goodbye

All distant rumours I can take
Without words I can hear it out
Pretending not to know
Old and long gone things take ghost-like shape
I don't know your whereabouts
Hardly know mine

It's too hard to handle...

You pay me a visit...
