Paloma Faith Beauty Remains

Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever get it right

My eyes are always open though my heart is blind

But something’s different this time ’cause it’s me and you

Everything’s changing for me

When people say they’ve heard me say it all before

I don’t think they were listening ’cause I feel it more

The angels must’ve sent you ’cause they heard me cry

Waiting so long for this time to arrive

So I make a dress from my sorrows, and shoes from my sadness

And dance all the way into love

Trouble passes and beauty remains

And though I know this could turn tragic

It’s alright, it’s alright, ’cause I am willing to take more hurt if it’s from you

Oh baby

I’ll take the pain from you

I know there’ll be no love unless I just let go

I’m standing here before you turn my tears to gold

I’ll leave my past behind it’s such a heavy load

I put my dreams into you, they’ll grow

So I make a dress from my sorrows, and shoes from my sadness

And dance all the way into love

Trouble passes (Trouble passes), and beauty remains (Beauty remains)

And though I know this could turn tragic (Could turn tragic)

It’s alright, It’s alright

‘Cause I am willing to take more hurt if it’s from you

Oh baby

I’ll take the pain from you

Oh yeah

And oh and know that trouble passes (Trouble passes)

And beauty remains (Beauty remains)

And Oh I now this could turn tragic (Could turn tragic)

But it’s alright, it’s alright

‘Cause I am willing to take more hurt from you

Oh baby

I’ll take the pain from

Oh yeah

Trouble passes (Oh Trouble passes)

And beauty remains (Beauty remains)

And though I know this could turn tragic (I know this could turn tragic)

It’s alright, it’s alright

‘Cause I am willing to take more hurt if it’s from you

Oh baby, I’m willing to take more hurt from you (Beauty remains)

Oh yeah

I’ll take the pain from you, Oh yeah

Paloma Faith Politics Of Hope

[Owen Jones, from “The Politics of Hope”:]

The rights and freedoms that we have today were won by your mothers, your fathers, your grandmothers, your grandfathers, your ancestors before them.

We stand on the shoulders of giants and we owe it to our ancestors. Not just to defend the rights and freedoms that they fought for at such cost and at such sacrifice, that continue their struggle that a different sort of society, not a society run in the interests of a tiny elite, but a society run in the interests of the majority.

Paloma Faith The Crazy Ones

Always the crazy ones, the crazy ones

Will never forget it all

Cause it’s the crazy ones, the crazy ones

Who make our life such a beautiful mess

Woo, even the worst times were the best times

The best times ever, woo

Even the bad days were the good days

I’ll always remember, woo

Then I’ll always keep parts of you

Are part of me forever

Oh, cause it’s the crazy ones, the crazy ones

The ones are pushed too far

The ones will fly too fast

The flames that burn too bright

That burn too bright to last

They’re anything but easy

They’re anything but sane

But once they’re in your life

You’ll never be the same

Woo, even the worst times were the best times

The best times ever, woo

I’ll always remember, woo

Then I’ll always keep parts of you

Are part of me forever

Paloma Faith You Never Give Me Your Money

You never give me your money

You only give me your funny papers

and in the middle of negotiations

you break down

I never give you my number

I only give you my situation

and in the middle of investigation

I break down

Out of college, money spent

See no future, pay no rent

All the money’s gone, nowhere to go

Any job, but got the sack

Monday morning, turning back

Yellow lorry slow, nowhere to go

But oh, that magic feeling, nowhere to go

Oh, that magic feeling

Nowhere to go

No there’s not, there’s not, there’s not nowhere to go

One sweet dream

Pick up the bags and get in the limousine

Soon we’ll be away from here

Step on the gas and wipe that tear away

One sweet dream came true… today

Came true… today

Came true… today… yes it did

One two three four five six seven,

All good children go to Heaven

One two three four five six seven,

All good children go to Heaven

One two three four five six seven

All good children go to Heaven.

Paloma Faith Mouth To Mouth

Put on your crisp white shirt

I’ll wear a bright red skirt

I’ll take a taxi ride

So we can drink all night

I know it’s been so long

But boy you still turn me on

‘Cause tonight I want to

Make love like strangers

No more fighting, no more pain

It would drive us both insane

Let’s just do it like we just met

(Do it, do it, do it, yeah)

Write your number on my hand

Sweat it off when we dance

And we’ll do it like we just met

Ooh oh mouth to mouth we touch

Resuscitating

What we nearly lost,

I never wanna

Let you go so just

Do it like we never met before

Give me mouth to mouth

Walk through the neon lights

I love this London eye

Come here my big brown eyes

And kiss these lips of mine

Now will you walk me home? (Yeah, yeah)

And if you’re wanting more (yeah, yeah)

Just ask I won’t say no (yeah, yeah)

Let’s make this magic

No more fighting, no more pain

It would drive us both insane

Let’s just do it like we just met

(Do it, do it, do it, yeah)

Write your number on my hand

Sweat it off when we dance

And we’ll do it like we just met

Ooh oh mouth to mouth we touch

Resuscitating

What we nearly lost,

I never wanna

Let you go so just

Do it like we never met before

Give me mouth to mouth

Oh when you touch me I turn golden

Forgot to remember you could make me feel this

Won’t go to work tomorrow morning

Stay in all day and tell the neighbours, know your name

And I know that sometimes baby (sometimes baby)

I can seem a little crazy (little crazy)

Just grab me by the back of my neck

And give me mouth to mouth

Ooh oh mouth to mouth we touch

Resuscitating

What we nearly lost,

I never wanna

Let you go so just

Do it like we never met before

Give me mouth to mouth

Ooh oh mouth to mouth we touch

Resuscitating

What we nearly lost,

I never wanna

Let you go so just

Do it like we never met before

Give me mouth to mouth

Paloma Faith My Legs Are Weak

I’m collecting people’s tears they cried because they miss you

They fill the seas and all the lakes

With memories the wind blew

I’d run out of jars before a second could pass

Didn’t have enough time with you to turn the hourglass

Pictures in my head

Suddenly appear

Why’d you have to go away

It’s all not very clear

Goodbye sweet angel

Sail away on teary seas

Tattooed the times we had

On my memory

My legs are weak

When I close my eyes I see you

The dimples in your cheeks

I forgot to thank you for the things

Cause I didn’t see you for weeks

Woke up this morning and hoped for a dream

But reality sat next to me and forced me to believe

Knocked down too soon

Like a skittle on the lanes

The man who took the wrong stop

From life’s fast moving train

Goodbye sweet angel

Sail away on teary seas

Tattooed the times we had

On my memory

Funeral Flowers

Won’t make me believe

They can carry out the casket

And I’ll still expect to see

You

You

You

Come round tomorrow and tell me all your news

I won’t ask for much from you

Sleep to my lullaby

Only give me one more chance

To say my last goodbye

Goodbye sweet angel

Sail away on teary seas

Tattooed the times we had

On my memory

Oh

Goodbye sweet angel

Sail away on teary seas

I tattooed the times we had

On my memory

Goodbye sweet angel

Sail away on teary seas

I tattooed the times we had

On my memory

(Oh, oh, I’ll, I’ll never forget you,

Wish you didn’t have to leave

Oh, oh, goodbye my sweet angel

Take your boat and sail away

My legs are weak

Paloma Faith I’ll Be Gentle

[John Legend:]

Puttin’ on a brave face, I wipe the tears away with no trace

I’m OK, Mister Grey

I’m not as strong as you think

There’s a hurt behind my smiling face

I say, “I’m OK”

[John Legend & Paloma Faith:]

Every saint has a past

Every sinner has a future

And I feel your pain

We all hurt the same

And I’ll be there to hold you

There’s nothing that I won’t do

‘Cause we all need a little kindness

All this cruelty is so mindless

I promise I’ll be tender

So darling just surrender

I see through all your pretending

So let go ’cause I can take it on

I’ll take it on (listen, baby)

Yeah, I’ll be gentle

[Paloma Faith:]

I see you putting on a brave face

I guess you need to learn to have faith

I’ll stay and wait

I shake it off and have a few drinks

And forget about everything they say

I’ll be your escape

[John Legend & Paloma Faith:]

Every saint has a past

Every sinner has a future

And I feel your pain

We all hurt the same

And I’ll be there to hold you

There’s nothing that I won’t do

‘Cause we all need a little kindness

All this cruelty is so mindless

I see through all your pretending

‘Cause our love is never ending

Oh, so hold my hand

‘Cause I got nowhere else to turn

Please be gentle and be kind

Lend me your ear, lend me your time

It takes a real man to let me see him cry

I’m here to dry your eyes

I see your’re hurt, don’t cry tonight

And I’ll be there to hold you

There’s nothing that I won’t do

‘Cause we all need a little kindness

All this cruelty is so mindless

And I’ll be there to hold you

There’s nothing that I won’t do

‘Cause we all need a little kindness

All this cruelty is so mindless

I promise I’ll be tender

So darling just surrender

I see through all your pretending

So darling just surrender

I see through all your pretending

So let go ’cause I can take it on

I’ll take it on (oh, take it on)

I’ll take it on

Oh, baby

And I’ll be gentle

Oh, I’ll be gentle

Paloma Faith Evolution

[Samuel L. Jackson:]

There is a beauty in the distant sound of a weeping man. There’s wonder in your child’s eyes, or maybe your future child’s eyes. And many things you may remember that you had, that you lost, that you let slip through your fingers, so cherish them all.

You are the poor, the refugee, the bloody victim. You are the power, the winner and the fighter. Breathe in, you’re lucky to

Be the beauty, the memory, the past, the past, the present and the future, be infinite. Do something, say something, believe in something, but most of all, know you can change things. Yes, you. What are you waiting for? Do not be fearful of evolution, the time is now!

Paloma Faith Guilty

I’ve been a criminal, I made a mistake

Believed in the fictional

Then let everything slip away

I can’t accept my faith

Thought the alternative looked so crystal clear

Drowned in the muddy waters

And I’m living in my worst fears

Begging you back through tears

You had this picture of me

And now I have shattered your dreams

I know the drill and I know the truth

And it kills me

Yeah, I’m guilty

Don’t come near me

The one thing I’m good at is messing up somebody else

Baby, I’m guilty

I’m turning sweet love into poison

And I got the scars, if you’re talking ’bout hurting yourself

Baby, I’m guilty as hell

I sit here all alone, my defense is down

Wishing I could be home

But I’m locked out and it’s my fault

Grazes with added salt

Thought I would be okay without you and I

Now that I realize it was all just an awful lie

Take me back, I might die

You had this picture of me

And now I have shattered your dreams

I know the drill and I know the truth

And it kills me

Yeah, I’m guilty

Don’t come near me

The one thing I’m good at is messing up somebody else

Baby, I’m guilty

I’m turning sweet love into poison

And I got the scars, if you’re talking ’bout hurting yourself

Baby, I’m guilty as hell

I should’ve known that I could not go on here without you

Instead of walking away, know that I’ll feel terrified

I know I was wrong, now I’m hurting myself, I wish I knew

Please, take me back, I don’t wanna believe this goodbye, oh

Yeah, I’m guilty

Don’t come near me

One thing I’m good at is messing up somebody else

Baby, I’m guilty as hell

(Yeah, I’m guilty)

Oh, I’m guilty

(Don’t come near me)

Don’t come near

The one thing I’m good at is messing up somebody else

(Please, forgive me, darling)

Baby, I’m guilty

I’m turning sweet love (I’ll turn sweet love) into poison (into poison, oh no)

And I got the scars (oh no), if you’re talking ’bout hurting yourself

Baby, I’m guilty as hell

Paloma Faith When You’re Gone

When I’m with you my heart sings of a joy

And everything washes over me and cleans me ’til I’m shining

For your touch there are no words

I fly with high hopes and the birds

And I know there’s nothing better ’cause I’m smiling

Everyone I’ve ever loved has left me lonely

Every time I let it go I’m high and dry

Every time I think I’m one and only

I find myself alone not knowing why

All the mystery and the magic

You light up what once was tragic

And I know that I will miss you when you’re gone

I could never have imagined

All the heavens pour with passion

But I know that I will miss you when you’re gone

You tell me that you are different

I’ll be saved and I’ll be lifted

It’s not easy but I’m trying to believe you

All the angels lost their halos

I have no choice but to let go

There are times when I feel paper thin and see-through

Everyone I’ve ever loved has left me lonely

Every time I let it go I’m high and dry

Every time I think I’m one and only

I find myself alone not knowing why

All the mystery and the magic

You light up what once was tragic

And I know that I will miss you when you’re gone

I could never have imagined

All the heavens pour with passion

But I know that I will miss you when you’re gone

When you’re gone [x2]

You’re gone

Everyone I’ve ever loved has left me lonely

Every time I let it go I’m high and dry

All the mystery and the magic

You light up what once was tragic

And I know that I will miss you when you’re gone

I could never have imagined

All the heavens pour with passion

But I know that I will miss you when you’re gone

When you’re gone [x2]

You’re gone

When I’m with you my heart sings of a joy

And everything…

And I know that I will miss you when you’re gone.
