Doves Almost Forgot Myself

So close…

You’re wasted again

I know, somehow…

I lost myself…again

Making me high again

I almost forgot myself again

It hits me so hard

It kills me again

Today

So close

Yet you’re wasted again

I know, somehow…

We’ll find ourselves…

I don’t know, I don’t know

Then we’ll be high again

I almost forgot myself there

It hits you so hard

And kills again

I almost forgot myself again

I almost forgot myself there

It’s hitting me hard

It moves me again

Again…

Doves Ambition

So ambition cut you down

Ain’t a love as perfect

Everybody knows it

Something drove you down

Something as good

Something new

Somebody good

Our ambition cuts us down

There’s not a love that’s perfect

But I, I live in hope

Somebody good

Somebody new

Something as good

Something that’s mine

Ain’t a love that’s perfect

Everybody knows it

Ambition cuts us down

Doves 10:03

10:03

On a fast train

A trick of light

Crossing my eyes

The sky went blank

Calling out your name

Calling out your name

Like the last

Of those fires

You shall burn, into the night

Like a moth,

To the flame

I will turn back again, I’m coming home

Calling out your name

All I’ve ever known

Distant call

Down the way

Distant train, on the line

I return

To your sign

With the push and the pull of your time

It’s all I’ve ever known

Calling out your name

All I’ve come along……

Lord, I’m coming home

10:03

On the fast train

Doves Break Me Gently

Walk inside, gets noticed

Fears conspire, they won’t go away

And I know, and I see, you’ll be breaking hearts again

You break me gently

Break me gently

Break me gently

Break my fall in vain

Pain won’t go, rest in peace

And I look, and I see, you could be breaking souls again

And I see me, break me gently

Break me gently

Break me gently

Doves Black And White Town

Here comes the action

Here comes at last

Lord give me a reaction

Lord give me a chance

You should follow me down

In satellite towns

There’s no colour and no sound

I’ve been ten feet underground

Got to get out of this satellite town

Here comes some action

First time in my life

I gotta get up to get compensation

I gotta get up to get this to light

Whether you live alone

Or you’re trying to find your way in this world

you better make sure that you don’t crack you’re head on that pavement, man

My God! what a shock!

It’s been preying on me and mine

This is a dangerous place man

This is a dangerous place, there’s nothing here.

You should follow your way down

In satellite towns

There’s no colour and no sound

I’ve been ten feet underground

Black and White Town

You should follow me down

There’s no colour and no sound

In the Black and White Town

I’ve been ten feet underground

In the Black and White Town

Doves Birds Flew Backwards

The car zoomed past, I watched the passers by

Birds flew backwards, yet still arrived

Winter seemed to linger

But now the swallows have arrived

Won’t be long until summertime

Walked through woods to the power lines

Saw birds fly backwards in perfect line

Oh, winter seemed to melt now

Now the swallows have arrived

Can’t be long ’til summertime, summertime

Doves Andalucia

I’ve seen a place

A place of falling rivers

Where we can breathe again

Let me know

Let me be

Let me see the one

That echoes in your mind…

The rain, falls, falling on my window

I ain’t seen the sun in days

Bring me back

Bring me back the hope we found that day

Seems far far away

And the world we see

Belongs to you and me

If we’re lucky- Andalucía

And the love you bring

Won’t mean a thing

If you don’t win – Andalucia

Days, feel strange

Impossible to remember

You’re a thousand miles away

I can’t rest

I cannot sleep

I’m feeling numb most days

Can you be the same?…

The same, dreams, of swimming in the ocean

White surf is all around

I can’t rest

I cannot sleep

I’m feeling numb most days

So far far away

And the world we see

Belongs to you and me

If we’re lucky- Andalucía

And the love you bring

Won’t mean a thing

If you don’t win – Andalucia
