Paloma Faith Broken Doll

I’m a broken doll and you’re the puppeteer

Take control for me and wipe away my fears

I don’t claim to be perfect

I know I’m damaged goods

But I wanna be led out of darkness just like every lady would

Lick my wounds and watch them seal with your healing heart

Embrace my sadness, look after me

Cause there’s no one else I’d ask

I’m a broken doll and you’re the puppeteer

Take control for me and wipe away my fears

Piece me all together, though broken I am sweet

You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat

I’m scared of shadows in the night

When you’re not there by my side

Sick of nightmares in my sleep

When there’s no place I can hide

See the beauty in the blood that drips down from my eyes

Hold the parts that were ripped out

That took me by surprise

I’m a broken doll and you’re the puppeteer

Take control for me and wipe away my fears

Piece me all together though broken I am sweet

You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat

Boom boom Here it goes Boom boom

To the sound of the grand piano

I am dancing in your light

And I like it here

I’m a broken doll and you’re the puppeteer

Take control for me and wipe away my fears

I’m broken doll you’re the puppeteer

Take control for me and wipe away my fears

Piece me all together though broken I am sweet

You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat

I’m a broken doll you’re the puppeteer

Take control for me and wipe away my fears

Piece me all together though broken I am sweet

You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat

Paloma Faith Taste My Own Tears

What would it take for me to feel again?

I’m a dead girl walking with no shoes again

It’s been a long time coming since somebody hurt me

Someone kiss me on my neck!

I was addicted to your danger, but now I fall asleep

And the angels weep

It’s been a long time coming since somebody move me

Someone got a hold on me

And it’s making me crazy

Cause I can’t stop thinking of you

Oh, and nothing can save me

Can’t help coming back

Cause I don’t feel nothing ’til I taste my own tears

Why would I do this to myself again

Drag myself through the dirt when I can see the end

It’s been a long time coming since somebody knew me

Someone got inside my head

My heart is aching with this loneliness

Tempted to call you to sleep in my bed

It’s been a long time coming since somebody touched me

Someone got a hold on me

And it’s making me crazy

Cause I can’t stop thinking of you

Oh, nothing can save me

Can’t help coming back

Cause I don’t feel nothing ’til I taste my own tears

Baby, baby, baby, I’m a moth to a flame

When I’m evil, I can’t hold myself back

This love can’t be tamed, baby, baby, baby

It’s making me crazy

Cause I can’t stop thinking of you

Knowing nothing can save me

Can’t help coming back

Cause I don’t feel nothing ’til I taste my own tears

Said it’s making me crazy

I can’t stop thinking of you

Aw, nothing can save me

Can’t help coming back

Cause I don’t feel nothing

No, I don’t feel nothing

Said I won’t feel nothing ’til I taste my own tears.

Paloma Faith 30 Minute Love Affair

30 minute love affair

All in the blink of an eye

There you were standing there

I heard an angel cry

Runaway lover

I soon discovered

It was best when we left it

I’ll never forget it

Our 30 minute love affair

The city led me out one night

Through lonely streets and neon lights

Searching, again

I met a stranger singing songs

Sat in that doorway I belonged with him

Just talking

He was so beautiful there in my dreams

I left my heart and my memories

30 minute love affair

All in the blink of an eye

There you were standing there

I heard an angel cry

Runaway lover

I soon discovered

It was best when we left it

I’ll never forget it

Our 30 minute love affair

He told me he’d be there tomorrow

I knew where he led, I would follow

I flew, and he knew

When I went back he had disappeared

My hopeful smile had turned to tears

Let down

No sight nor sound

Sometimes it’s better just to let them go

Cause your illusion’s more than what you could know

30 minute love affair

All in the blink of an eye

There you were standing there

I heard an angel cry

Runaway lover

I soon discovered

It was best when we left it

I’ll never forget it

Our 30 minute love affair

Falling from the sky for him

I’ll never regret it

He took my breath away

And although it was the shortest time

I’ll never forget it

He gave me such a beautiful lie

Oh my

30 minute love affair

All in the blink of an eye

There you were standing there

I heard an angel cry

Runaway lover

I soon discovered

It was best when we left it

Now I’ll never forget it

It was best when we left it

Now I’ll never forget it

Our 30 minute love affair

30 minute love affair

Our 30 minute love affair

Paloma Faith Let Your Love Walk In

I long for something simple

I long for something real

Will this heart heal?

Oh all my life been searchin’

It feels like I’m still lookin’

Oh I can feel…

And though I’m in a crowded room

But I feel lonely now

I know you’re on your way

Though I don’t see you now

So Cupid take your aim and open fire

Darlin’ if you hold me, take it slowly, I

Will let your love walk in

Yes I will let your love come in

Darlin’ I grow weary

Please won’t you save me

I’ve closed too many doors

But I wanna let your love walk in

Tonight

Afraid I am too broken

Afraid I can’t be free

Oh the past bleeds

Defined by misdemeanours

Made up of my regrets

My memories

And though I’m in a crowded room

But I feel lonely now

I know you’re on your way

Though I don’t see you now

So Cupid take your aim and open fire

Darlin’ if you hold me, take it slowly, I

Will let your love walk in

Yes I will let your love come in

Darlin’ I grow weary

Please won’t you save me

I’ve closed too many doors

But I wanna let your love walk in

When I’m dancin’ on the rooftops

Come and find me

When I’m shattered and I seem lost

Oh take my hand

When I’m filled with joy and all you

Hear is laughter

Come and find me oh take my hand

Darlin’ if you hold me, take it slowly, I

Will let your love walk in

Yes I will let your love come in

Darlin’ I grow weary

Please won’t you save me

I’ve closed too many doors

But I wanna let your love walk in

Tonight

I need you to hold me

Come on darlin’

I want you to hold me

Let your love walk in

Paloma Faith Smoke & Mirrors

I met you we made a pact

Broke promises

The system snapped

Saw all your lies in neon lights uh oh

Glitter-coated miracles

And then one day the curtain called

Behind your smile you’re a phoney and a fake

Give it up

You’ve been discovered (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)

Don’t look back cause you’ve just lost your lover

Give it up

Your an illusion (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)

Play your tricks and all I get is just confusion

And now we’re through

The show is over

The audience is walking out the room

You know it’s true

What I told ya

That all you’ve done comes back around on you

You said you were built to last

You took my hand you made a pass

The moon eclipsed and circled round my heart

With your kiss my life began

Your love it hit and then you ran

I hope you pay your dues

I’m moving on

Give it up

You’ve been discovered (Ooh-ooh ooh-ooh)

Don’t look back cause you’ve just lost your lover

Give it up

Oh, it’s okay to be

A little broken and beat

But I’m alright with that

You’re with me, relax

And you call it weak

Baby, you’re just unique

Paloma Faith Stargazer

Ba da da, ba da da, ba da

He was a star collector, she knew about the skies

He was a tightrope walker, she was the talk of the town

While he was in the clouds

He’d show her the signs and he’d know what they mean…

Twinkle twinkle little dream

Stargazer, heartbreaker

Wish you were here

How will I shine anymore without your atmosphere?

My dear stargazer, don’t disappear

How will shine anymore when you’re not here?

Ba da da, ba da da, ba da

She had it all and lost it, now he’s forever in space

He circles Haley’s comet, and lights up the sky like a flame

Now she’s the star collector

She knows the signs and she knows what they mean…

Twinkle twinkle little dream

Stargazer, heartbreaker

Wish you were here

How will I shine anymore without your atmosphere?

My dear stargazer, don’t disappear

How will shine anymore when you’re not here?

In my every day and the moments I wake up lonely

You’re the only one who can bring the stars for me…

Twinkle twinkle little dream

Stargazer, heartbreaker

Wish you were here

How will I shine anymore without your atmosphere?

My dear stargazer, don’t disappear

How will shine anymore when you’re not here?

(Ba da da, ba da da, ba da) Give me a shooting star

(Ba da da, ba da da, ba da)

And I’ll make a wish, I’ll make a wish for you

(Ba da da, ba da da, ba da)

(Ba da da, ba da da, ba da) How will I shine anymore when you’re not here?

Paloma Faith Trampoline

You go up, you go down

Your stomach leaps up into your mouth

You go high, you go low

You aim for North but your luck goes South

But don’t look down or you’ll get vertigo

There’s a world beyond the rabbit hole

[Chorus:]

I’m a trampoline, I keep bouncing back

Look at me, light as a feather oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

Throw your best at me, but I’m an acrobat

High above the trees, you can’t catch me on my trampoline

I had you, you had me

Then rebound girl changed history

It gets bad, it gets worse

She kept the main course, but only served desert

While you’re deep down there in you submarine

I’ll be higher than the eye can see

[Chorus]

My somersaults and pirouettes

Take me to a place where I can forget

Call me crazy, but there’s one thing I know

You gotta throw away the past like broken glass

Or you just might explore

You’ll blow up [x3]

Even quicksand won’t keep butterflies

From flying up into the open sky

[Chorus]

You won’t catch me on my trampoline

Paloma Faith Price Of Fame

It doesn’t matter what you give

It’s never enough

You can never have a bad day girl

Cause that would be tough for me

It doesn’t mater what you say

We’ll never believe it

So pour another whiskey babe

You look great

She was only woman

Not built to be a superstar

She carried a burden

A gift to cause a thousand scars

Too broken down and frail to carry such a heavy load

She walked in to darkness and we stood

To watch her go

Didn’t see you fade away

But that’s the price you paid

Singing through your hurt and pain

Should have been another way

Take it just a bit too late

Don’t believe it

Oh lord it was the price of fame

So can i get a photograph?

Even if you don’t want it

I don’t care if you got troubles girl

Just please don’t be honest with me

Oh can you be my laughing stock

Don’t take it so personal

Just pour another whiskey babe

You look great

She was only woman

Not built to be a superstar

She carried a burden

A gift to cause a thousand scars

Too broken down and frail to carry such a heavy load

She walked in to darkness and we stood

To watch her go

Didn’t see you fade away

But that’s the price you paid

Singing through your hurt and pain

Should have been another way

Take it just a bit too late

Don’t believe it

Oh lord it was the price of fame

Didn’t see you fade away

But that’s the price you paid

Singing through your hurt and pain

Should have been another way

Take it just a bit too late

Don’t believe it

Oh lord it was the price of fame

Yeah lord it was the price of fame

Sing lord, price of fame

It was the price of fame
