Matt Corby Coloured Stones And Walls

Coloured Stones And Walls

You keep me as the winter falls

You hold it back, the fire roars

We stay indoors and pray to God

A noble cause, singing…

Ooohhh

Ooohhh

Ooohhh

Ooohhh

I’m lost and lone

I’m lost and lone

The sound of rain that breaks the ice

My pain that holds me like a vice

The truth we’ve come to know

The story’s written in the snow

Keeps us full of life now

Ooohhh

Ooohhh

Ooohhh

Ooohhh

Matt Corby Songbird

I went down to the water

And looked past the the breakers

And something in the sky told me

It’d never be the same

I look to my sister

Saying, “What have I done?

I’ve made a mess of this

Song that I’ve sung”

Now everyone’s trying to tell me

How it’s supposed to feel

They nod like I’m a child

But they don’t even hear me

Oh I will wait for my little songbird

But it’s not the right time

So I’ll fly out on my own

So if you see my little songbird

Can you tell her I’ll wait here

Down by the shoreline

The words of the Father

They ring in my ear

Go and find you a love

And live out all of your fears

And they say if you’re looking

Well, you’ll get what you come for

And everyone has their own price to pay

Oh, I don’t really know what to believe

Oh I’ll call out to the world,

“Hello, can you hear me?”

Oh I will wait for my little songbird

But it’s not the right time

So I’ll fly out on my own

So if you see my little songbird

Can you tell her I’ll wait here

Down by the shoreline

Ooooooohhh

Oh I will wait for my little songbird

But it’s not the right time

So I’ll fly out on my own

So if you see my little songbird

Can you tell her I’ll wait here

Down by the shoreline

Matt Corby Knife Edge

Dreams,

They keep me awake

Like this song,

That is stuck in my brain

And it goes

“Dum-da-dum, da-dum, da-da-da-da-dum, da-dum, da-dum,

da-dum, da-dum, dum, da-da-da, da-da-da-dum”

So I stood in the heated halls and I played for the King and the Queen

Oh I went out in the blistering cold and I played for the beggars and thieves

I saw the pain in their eyes fade away as they listened to me

Oh I will carry that weight back home

Dreams,

Oh listen to me

I’m so tired of this place

And I wanna be free

And they say

“Oh don’t you get it, You’re never,

You’re never going back home”

And they say

“Oh don’t you get it,

There is more to life, there is more to life than I know”

Cause I stood in the heated halls and I played for the King and the Queen

Oh I went out in the blistering cold and I played for the beggars and thieves

I saw the pain in their eyes fade away, as they listened to me

Oh I will carry that weight

Oh I will carry that weight back home

Matt Corby First Things First

First things first

I find a place

A nice big piece of grass

Sit right down and think about

The other side of town

Oh ain’t you glad you been living ’round here

Ain’t you glad that you’re free

Oh is all good to know you got a friend

That will help you out til the very end of time

Your mind’s alive with crawly things that go

Runnin’ round your mind

They tell you when right or wrong

And they keep you from goin’ insane

Oh baby ain’t you glad you been livin’ round here

Ain’t you glad that your free yeah

Oh it’s all good to know you got a friend that will

Help you out til the very end of time

Oh do you see what I mean

There’s always someone there to disagree

Oh I was sittin’ on that nice green grass

Thoughts goin’ through my mind

I’m thinkin’ about cutting it fine

And sing a little song and praying for it all

Ain’t you glad you been livin’ round here

Ain’t you glad that your free

It’s so good that you got a friend that will

Help you out til the very end

Matt Corby Brother

Ooh ooh ooh…

Sleep now under my skin

Make sure you’ll try to

Conjure the wind

And ease my mind

Ooh ooh ooh…

Somebody call out to your brother

He’s calling out your name

Ooh ooh ooh

Hiding under the covers

With no one else to blame

Ooh ooh ooh

You couldn’t help out your own neighbor

You couldn’t tell it to his face

You were fucked up by the blame

You cower in the corner

Confide in your father

Let it out and say

Let it pass away

Sleep now under my skin

Make sure you try to

Conjure the wind

And ease my mind

And I said

Ooh ooh ooh…

Somebody call out to your brother

He’s calling out your name

Ooh ooh ooh

Hiding under the covers

With no one else to blame

Ooh ooh ooh

You couldn’t help out your own neighbor

You couldn’t tell it to his face

You were fucked up by the blame

You cower in the corner

Confide in your father

Let it out and say

You cower in the corner

Confide in your father

Let it break your day

Let it out and say

Wait there

Pull yourself out of this state dear

Acknowledge you were a fake here

From there on you might just grow

Oh oh oh

Somebody call out to your brother

He’s calling out your name

Ooh ooh ooh

Hiding under the covers

With no one else to blame

Ooh ooh ooh

Oh, you couldn’t help out your own neighbor

You couldn’t tell it to his face

You were fucked up by the blame

Matt Corby Do You No Harm

I won’t do you no harm, do you no harm

I won’t let them do you no harm, do you no harm

The markings won’t do you no harm

Your bruises won’t do you no harm

I’m sick and tired got to get out and touch the morning dawn

Let me back down and assume what I got left to say

I’m too tired but I’ve barely even waiting long

I’m too down to be driving in the evening

I won’t do you no harm, do you no harm

I won’t let them do you no harm, do you no harm

The markings won’t do you no harm

Your bruises won’t do you no harm

I’m sick and tired got to get out and touch the morning dawn

Let me back down and assume what I got left to say

I’m too tired but I’ve barely even waiting long

I’m too down to be driving in the evening

I got this feeling that we’re tied up

Do you feel like we’re all weird up

You only take from me

You won’t just wait with me

I got this feeling that we’re tied up

Do you feel like we’re all wired up

You won’t embrace me

You won’t escape with me

Matt Corby Evangelist

There’s a cold, cold, trickle down my spine

The white writer gonna tell you what’s not mine

Oh I hope I see you passing by my door

Oh I hope I won’t see you anymore.

Oh I know on the inside you’re wondering why you fight

It seems that your restrained by devout belief that ruins your life

I won’t listen to you won’t you blow right past my door.

Oh I won’t listen to you, blank the screen and I’ll try to ignore you.

There’s a white, light glimmer in my eye

And the light is refracting in my sight

Oh I Hope I see you passing by my door

I hope I don’t see you anymore

Oh I know on the inside you’re wondering why you fight

It seems that your restrained by devout belief that ruins your life

I won’t listen to you won’t you blow right past my door.

Oh I won’t listen to you, blank the screen and I’ll try to ignore you.

Is it strange to believe that the lukewarm pollution has seen revolution

Hard to reside & the fires steal the light and the spirits need reviving

Will to your father, he’ll hold you through these treacherous times [?]

You should catch onto the rest

Matt Corby Resolution

I’m giving up

This whole lie, this whole me

Call it out like a family

Instead I bide my time, get a ride

Until the rubber leaves the road

You said don’t lie so I made the truth

Seemed like a lie to even you

Control your fear. It’s clear

That you do not know where you’re going to

So, don’t you worry

You’ll be my resolution

Characters of no illusion

You’ll be my resolution

One month down and it’s in sight

oh, I’m guaranteed to lose my mind

It’s dangerous to speak and sigh

You might know what I’m trying to hide

So from the cradle to quarter age

oh, I bought the book but didn’t flip the page

oh, readiness is near. We steer

As far away from the coming of days

So, don’t you worry

You’ll be my resolution

Characters of no illusion

You’ll be my resolution

Characters of no illusion

You’ll be my resolution

Turn around, put it down and see

That this is really the place to be.

I’m not you, nor you me

But we’re both moving steady.
