Lewis Watson When The Water Meets The Mountains

It’s starting here, it’s starting now

I’ve never known quite where to start

What better time to let your hair down?

Don’t be scared of the dark

Interruptions on the TV

They’re telling us how to build an arc

Shut your mouth and play some Springsteen

‘Cause pretty soon we’ll all be dancing in the dark

I’ll tell you now,

I could lay like this forever

‘Cause tomorrow isn’t ever

Coming ’round

If it’s the end

Then let’s see it out together

We’ll fall asleep and never hit the ground

Sirens sending out their warning sounds

But all that I can hear is you

We’re making shapes out of the rain clouds

As they march us in two by two

I’ll tell you now,

I could lay like this forever

‘Cause tomorrow isn’t ever

Coming ’round

If it’s the end

Then let’s see it out together

We’ll fall asleep and never hit the ground

When the water meets the mountain

And we can’t keep afloat

Let’s let ourselves go under

Someday we will all be ghosts

When we can’t climb any higher

‘Cause we’re running out of rope

Let’s let go of it all

Someday we will all be ghosts

When the water meets the mountain

And we can’t keep afloat

Let’s let ourselves go under

Someday we will all be ghosts

When we can’t climb any higher

‘Cause we’re running out of rope

Let’s let go of it all

Someday we will all be ghosts

Lewis Watson It Could Be Better

I don’t wanna talk

‘Cause it’ll only hurt more

I don’t wanna bring it up again

‘Cause it hurt like hell before

You know me too well

You make my head spin and I’ll just say something wrong

You pull me out of my shell and then hate me when I’m done

But if the rain keeps falling and you can’t see the tears in my eyes

They say the night is daunting but we all need somewhere to hide

So it could be better if I kept it to myself

Yah it could be better if I left it on the shelf

Before I go and say something I don’t mean

Yah it could be better if I kept it to myself

Ohhhhh Ohhhhhhh Ohhhhhh

Let’s wipe the slate clean

And I’ll bottle it up again

It’s just how I’ve always been

Even without you

‘Cause if the rain stops falling and you start to see the tears in my eyes

And if the night stops calling then we won’t have somewhere to hide

So it could be better if I kept it to myself

Yah it could be better if I left it on the shelf

Before I go and say something I don’t mean

Yah it could be better if I kept it to myself

I’d rather forget than have to forgive

I’d rather lose it than live with this memory

Don’t wanna accept the things that you did

I try not to show it but you know it hurts me

I’d rather forget than have to forgive

I’d rather lose it than live with this memory

Don’t wanna accept the things that you did

‘Cause you know it hurts me, yeah, yeah

Before I go and say something I don’t mean

Before I go and say something I don’t mean

So it could be better if I kept it to myself

Yah it could be better if I left it on the shelf

Before I go and say something I don’t mean

Yah it could be better if I kept it to myself

Lewis Watson Made Up Love Song #43

I love you through sparks and shining dragons, I do.

And there’s poetry in an empty Coke can.

And I love you through sparks and shining dragons, I do.

And there’s majesty in a burnt out caravan.

You got me off the paper round,

Just sprang out of the air.

The best things come from nowhere.

I love you, I don’t think you care.

I love you through sparks and shining dragons, I do.

And there’s symmetry of your northern grin.

I love you through sparks and shining dragons, I do.

I can see myself in the refill litter bin.

You got me off the sofa,

Just sprang out of the air.

The best things come from nowhere

And I can’t believe you care, care.

Yes, I’ll believe you [til fade]

Lewis Watson Once Before

Once before

If you want, I could say your name

Hold our breath, so we feel again.

I don’t know if I can sacrifice

The weeks that I’ve spent

Holding on by a single thread

I’ve been spending those sleepless nights

On the floor

And now I don’t even close my eyes

Anymore

And I don’t want it to happen twice

’cause we’ve been here once before

It was you, who said it all went wrong

We were just fine yesterday, today you’re gone

But now at a second glance

You’re wanting a second chance

But I can’t

I’m afraid that I’m not that strong

Lewis Watson Into The Wild

Take my hand and let go

I just want you to know

You’re the only one that pulls me in

You changed everything

Like one small shaft of light

Flooding into my eyes

I will never see things just the same

But I’m not afraid

And all I have, doesn’t seem so significant

And at the drop of a hat

I could leave almost everything

That I’ve ever known, so here we go

Step out into the wild

There’s a beautiful storm in your eyes

We’re perfectly intertwined

And if it’s quite alright

You could be my way of life

Sea salt sits on your lips

Birds fall earthward from cliffs

Thought I couldn’t do this but I’m fine

’cause you’re by my side

And all I have, it doesn’t seem so significant

And at the drop of a hat

My whole world’s getting different

So here we go, off road

Step out into the wild

There’s a beautiful storm in your eyes

We’re perfectly intertwined

And if it’s quite alright maybe it’s time to

Step out into the wild

There’s a beautiful storm in your eyes

We’re perfectly intertwined and if it’s quite alright

You could be my way of life

And we take another step into the truly unknown

Don’t know why but it’s somewhere that we have to go

And it’s dangerously wonderful

So come on, come on, come on, come on

Step out into the wild

There’s a beautiful storm in your eyes

We’re perfectly intertwined

And if it’s quite alright

You could be my way of life

Lewis Watson Run

Maybe I was wrong

And maybe you were too

Cause the nights are getting longer, dear

Now that I spend them without you

And if you’re not with him

Come and fill my empty room

Oh won’t you settle down and steal my skin

Just like you used to

And when you’re all out of love, you could run

You could run

And you’ve had enough, you could run

You could run

And when the morning sun forces in the light

Won’t you hold me cause I’ve come undone

Cause you’re not by my side

When you’re all out of love, you just run

You just run

When you’ve had enough, you just run

You just run

When you’re all out of love, you just run

You just run

When you’ve had enough, you just run

You just run

Lewis Watson Droplets

I’m leaving you

Not sure if that’s what I should do

It hurts so bad

I’m wanting you but can’t go back

Trying for find, find

That, oh, illusive piece of mind

Stuck here, somehow

Shrouded beneath my fear

And I, I don’t need it

I’m walking down this world alone

And I figured all I’m thinking ’bout is you

Is you, my love

And my head is in a cloud of rain

And the world it seems so far away

And I’m just waiting for the droplets

The drops

So you left a mark

And I wear it proudly on my chest

Above my heart

To remind me that I feel the best

When I’m with you

And everything is effortless

You know it’s true

My eyes are painted with regret

And I don’t need it

‘Cause I’m wondering down this road alone

And I figured all I’m thinking ’bout is you

Is you, my love

‘Cause my head is in a cloud of rain

And the world it seems so far away

And I’m just waiting for you to sink into your skin

You are like the raindrops, the raindrops

Falling down on me

So you left a mark (you left a mark)

She left a mark (He left, he left)

But I (I don’t) don’t, I don’t need it

Lewis Watson Over The Atlantic

Oh mother,

Oh mother, I’m running from.

From the arms of another,

of another, broken home.

Remember when we were children,

We were just children, having fun.

With the old ghost in the garden,

Before we started, growing up.

Ooooooo,

Oooohhhh,

Oh father,

Oh father, I guess I’m wrong,

The castles in the kitchen, that we kept building,

Slowly gone.

Remember when we were children,

We were just children, singing songs.

Passed down from your father,

Before we started, growing old.

When was the last time we,

stayed up to count the stars?

When was the last time we,

said that the world was ours?

Oh mother,

Oh mother, I’m outgrown,

I’m outgrown,

Oh brother, my brother,

Where have you gone?

I wrote to you, said I missed you,

You and our sister, are moving on.

Remember when we were children,

We were just children, having fun.

I fall asleep with a burden,

and we get up early, to beat the sun

When was the last time we,

stayed up to count the stars?

When was the last time we,

said that the world was ours?

Oh mother,

Oh mother, I’m outgrown,

We never can not know,

We never can outgrow.

When was the last time we,

stayed up to count the stars?

When was the last time we,

said that the world was ours?

Oh mother,

Oh mother, I’m outgrown,

We never can not know,

We never can outgrow.

Lewis Watson Stay

When I close my eyes I hear you singing

Singing me a song that I’ll forget

I always forget

I try to take myself back to sleeping

You pick me up but I let you down

It was so clear but now it’s gone

I couldn’t keep my eyelids shut

Why can’t you stay?

Stay…stay

If only I could dream we could start again [2x]

Ooohhh… oooh

When I close my eyes I see you dancing

Dancing me a song

Just out of reach, just out of reach

I need you in a day when I’m not dreaming

You pick me up,

I don’t wanna let you down

It was so clear but now it’s gone

I couldn’t keep my eyelids shut

Why can’t you stay?

Stay…stay

If only I could dream we could start again [2x]

Ooohhh… oooh

It was so clear but now it’s gone,

I couldn’t keep my eyelids shut,

Why can’t you stay?

Stay…stay…stay

If only I could dream we could start again

Stay

If only I could dream we could start again

Stay

If only I could dream we could start again [2x]
