Barcelona Cure

Will you stay with me tonight?

You could be my cure

You’re afraid

I’m a bad guy

All I do is hurt

So take away all my sin

Give me a sweet prayer on my lips

And take it off

Take me in

I wanna make love to you

Put your hands on my chest

I’ll make you feel like you’ve been blessed

Put my words to the test

I wanna make love to you

Will you stay?

I hate to fight

But it makes me want you more

Please, don’t play

With my heart tonight

I get a little insecure

So take away all my sin

Give me a sweet prayer on my lips

And take it off

Take me in

I wanna make love to you

Put your hands on my chest

I’ll make you feel like you’ve been blessed

Put my words to the test

I wanna make love to you

Oh this I swear

I promise to myself

I’ll never let you go

Give you my heart and soul

Oh this I swear

I promise to myself

I’ll never let you go

Give you my heart and soul

So take away all my sin

Give me a sweet prayer on my lips

Take it off

Take me in

I wanna make love to you

Put your hands (put your hands)

On my chest (on my chest)

I’ll make you feel like you’ve been blessed

(My love will bless you, girl)

Put my words to the test

I wanna make love

(I wanna make, I wanna make love)

To you

Barcelona Sister

I heard you’re leaving town for good this time

I heard they don’t like your attitude

Going without a reason, that’s the reason why

I hope you pick up when I call for you

Give up to the night

Get lost in the lights

Just hold your breath and fall in

It ain’t wrong, it ain’t right

It ain’t easy sometimes

But it’s everything you wanted

You wanna feel it, desire

(Just know where you are)

If you deny it, it won’t make you better

I know, I know

You wanna feel it, desire

(Just know where you are)

I know you’ll come back someday

Just tell me that you’re okay

Sister

Sister

I heard you’re breaking all the party lines

I heard that there is nothing you’re afraid of

You’re running ’round town trying to free your mind

But that heart got you swinging like a pendulum

Give up to the night

Get lost in the lights

Just hold your breath and fall in

It ain’t wrong, it ain’t right

It ain’t easy sometimes

But it’s everything you wanted

You wanna feel it, desire

(Just know where you are)

If you deny it, it won’t make you better

I know, I know

You wanna feel it, desire

(Just know where you are)

I know you’ll come back someday

Just tell me that you’re okay

Sister

Sister

Sister

No matter where you are

I’ll keep you in my heart

Let’s give up to the night

Get lost in the lights

Let me hold you close, we’re falling

It ain’t wrong, it ain’t right

But that look in your eyes

Like a hundred voices calling

You wanna feel it, desire

(Just know where you are)

If you deny it, it won’t make you better

I know, I know

You wanna feel it, desire

(Just know where you are)

I know you’ll come back someday

Just tell me that you’re okay

Barcelona Faded

All ’round this empty space

Baseboards and change with dust

Discard hopeful display once it aroused the brave in us

Maintain every night

Bodies aching all the time

Things that made me smile

Made me think we’d last

Broken terrible piles

We couldn’t know they’d turn so fast

She drinks red wine every night

Soaking through all the time

Oh god I’m faded out

No more straight lines

We shared the very same room

The very same bed with love

Bad night she fell asleep

I flew away and I’ll never stop

We cry every night

Words are broken all the time

Oh god I’m faded out

No more straight lines

Oh god I’m faded out

No more straight lines

Barcelona Colors

It’s hard for me to say what I want from

You I have had 22 years of

Trying to form the words that somehow

Might mean I am feeling

So many colors in this distraction

Brown hair makes her lips more red

Words would not describe what I’m seeing

I try to hold my tongue but it’s useless

She makes my heart scream color

I know by now she should have found me out

Every sense I have has been exhausted

But color makes her smile

She’s always waiting for me to speak

But all she hears is whitest noise

Though I may not communicate my heart

She knows the color I’m screaming

She makes my heart scream color

I know by now she should have found me out

And every sense I have has been exhausted

But color makes her smile

I feel it coming, I feel it coming

I feel it coming, I feel it coming

I feel it coming, I feel it coming

I feel it coming on

Whoa, she makes my heart scream color

I know by now she should have found me out

And every sense I have has been exhausted

But color makes her smile

Yeah, she makes my heart scream color

She should have found me out

Every sense I have has been exhausted

But color makes her smile

Color makes her smile

Barcelona Heal

It seems like everybody wants to play

They wanna buy it for a price

I’m no exception ’cause I play the game

Until you opened my mind

Like you do sometimes

Heal the love and the love will stay

Feeling your love in a whole new way

Sweet Valerie, Valerie

Heal the love and the love will stay

Feeling your love in a whole new way

Sweet Valerie, Valerie

I hear those haters screaming every day

They got me heavy, weighed down

Then you came and sang your song, lovely day

They need to hear that sound

Like I do right now

Heal the love and the love will stay

Feeling your love in a whole new way

Sweet Valerie, Valerie

Heal the love and the love will stay

Feeling your love in a whole new way

Sweet Valerie, Valerie

Ooh, love is enough

Oh, it’s enough to give it up

When we blame it on each other

Love is enough

But it’s enough to lift you up

When you give it to another

Love is enough

I saw a little boy the other day

Yeah, he was acting too strong

All it took was a little girl to change his face

And she was singing your song

And I sang along

Heal the love and the love will stay

Feeling your love in a whole new way

Sweet Valerie, Valerie

Heal the love and the love will stay

Feeling your love in a whole new way

Sweet Valerie, Valerie

Heal the love and the love will stay

Feeling your love in a whole new way

Sweet Valerie, Valerie

Heal the love and the love will stay

Feeling your love in a whole new way

Sweet Valerie, Valerie

Barcelona Next Year People

I remember you pure and warm

In the belly of a midnight sun

You were playing on those dark clouds

But they didn’t come

You pick up where your words fall off

Then you ask me what I’m searching for

I was looking for my mother

Can you carry the part?

And you never have to be alone

You will be forever mine

I will wear you over my shoulder

And keep you alive

Barcelona First Floor People

First floor people

I’ll take my place among the throngs

Everyone reading books on how not to fall

Some may say, the world looks

The same through red eyes, no way

Covered in dirt off the floor, I’m seeing straight

Don’t be scared if you know

Help me to explain myself

Who am I to fool now if you’re gone, you’re gone

If I am found below the ground

I’m searching, desperate

Prepared people, take your places on deck

I’m a lost boy with no one to tell me I am safe

Overarching rules have told me not to think about

Who am I to fool now if you’re gone, you’re gone

If I am found below the ground

I’m searching, desperate

This hole is deeper by the hour

My hands are bleeding I spin around, you’re nowhere

I’ll throw away my ugly plans

They’re too tired to push me anywhere but down

So who am I to fool now if you’re gone, you’re gone

If I am found below the ground

I’m searching, desperate

So who am I to fool now if you’re gone, you’re gone

When I am found below the ground

I’m searching, I’m desperate

Barcelona Response

What makes these boys fall hard,

Over all the girls they have fought and won?

These kings work hard and long,

Just to ensure that their girls don’t run.

Oh no, nobody taught them

To love slow, they’re crying out at the streets below.

Why don’t you stay with me?

I think you could save this beast.

But I’ll leave you with an empty look.

Honey, that’s what takers do…

I’m a thief and I’ll take you.

What makes these monsters cry?

You can see the gold reflecting in their eyes.

Yea, that’s just our heaving skin stretched tight,

Greedy hands grab what feels right.

Oh no, nobody taught them to let go, they don’t know.

Why don’t you stay with me?

I think you could save this beast.

But I’ll leave you with an empty look.

Honey that’s what takers do…

I’m a thief and I’ll take you.

Oh, oh, oh, OHHHHH.

Oh, oh, oh, OHHHHH.

Oh, oh, oh, OHHHHH-OHHH-OHHH-OHHH. [repeats, continues]

If you stay, you would break.

Your way to innocence

To take after these violent ways…

You still love and I still take.

Stay with me.

I think you could save this beast.

But I’ll leave you with an empty look.

Honey, that’s what takers do…

I’m gonna take you and you’ll stay with me.

Well, I think you can save this beast.

But I’ll leave you with an empty look.

Honey, that’s what takers do…

Barcelona Drop Everything

She caught my eye on the back of the bus

A pretty young thing from a little old town

Leaving cause it wasn’t enough

She told me

She’s out on a mission to love

Wearing that heart right out on her sleeve

Acting like she’s having fun

Well

Let’s pretend for a minute she was happy

Not a care in the world

Just a smiley face

I can see she’s headed for a tragedy

I wanna save the girl

But it’s not my place

I wanna ask her

What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

We could drop everything, drop everything, run away

Tell me what would you do if I called your name

We could drop everything, drop everything, leave today

Well it’s been about five or six months

Ran into her, late night, working downtown

Living right under the gun

She kills me

The same sweet girl from the back of the bus

Baby on the way but she’s living alone

Cause her man ain’t man enough

Well

I pretend for a minute she was happy

Not a care in the world

Just a smiley face

I can see she’s livin in a tragedy

I wanna save the girl

Is it my place?

I think I’ll ask her

What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

We could drop everything, drop everything, run away

Tell me what would you do if I called your name

We could drop everything, drop everything, leave today

I need to know

Are you ready to admit

That the fear that’s keeping you here

It’s breaking your heart, breaking you down, breaking your will

I’m ready to go

But I need you to admit

It’s the fear that’s keeping you here

Breaking your heart, breaking you down, breaking your will

Darling

I can see you shaking, don’t know what to say

You can drop everything, drop everything that caused your pain

I could be your comfort but you choose your fate

Won’t you drop everything? Drop everything, run to me

What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

We could drop everything, drop everything, run away

Tell me what would you do if I called your name

We could drop everything, drop everything, leave today
