Portishead Seven Months

How can I forget you

Disregard how I feel

Silently listen

To the words I can’t see

For as long as I have tried

And as low as I can be

I will never resign myself

From the trial I seek

Why should I forgive you

After all that I’ve seen

Quietly whisper

When my heart wants to scream

For as long as I have tried

And as low as I can be

I will never resign myself

From the trial I seek

There’s no time to rest

Or to reconsider

For this cruel unsaid, won’t concede

For as long as I have tried

And as low as I can be

I will never resign myself

From the trial I seek

Portishead Strangers

Ohh……..

Can anybody see the light

Where the morn meets the dew and the tide rises

Did you realise, no one can see inside your view

Did you realise, for why this sight belongs to you

Ohh……..

Just set aside your fears of life

Thru this sole desire

Done it warning

Done it now

This ain’t real

On in this side

Done it warning

Done it now

This ain’t real

On in this side

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Done it warning

Done it now

This ain’t real

Done it warning

Done it now

This ain’t real

On in this side

Ohh…………

Can anybody see the light

Were the morn meets the dew and the tide rises

Did you realise, no one can ever see inside you view

Did you realise, forewhy this sight belongs to you

Portishead Glory Box

I’m so tired of playing

Playing with this bow and arrow

Gonna give my heart away

Leave it to the other girls to play

For I’ve been a temptress too long

Just…

Give me a reason to love you

Give me a reason to be a woman

I just wanna be a woman

From this time, unchained

We’re all looking at a different picture

Through this new frame of mind

A thousand flowers could bloom

Move over and give us some room

Give me a reason to love you

Give me a reason to be a woman

I just wanna be a woman

So don’t you stop being a man

Just take a little look from outside when you can

Sow a little tenderness

No matter if you cry

Give me a reason to love you

Give me a reason to be a woman

I just wanna be a woman

It’s all I wanna be is all woman

For this is the beginning of forever and ever

It’s time to move over

It’s all I wanna be

I’m so tired of playing

Playing with this bow and arrow

Gonna give my heart away

Leave it to the other girls to play

For I’ve been a temptress too long

Just give me a reason to love you

Portishead Plastic

I wonder why

I don’t know what you see

Of course I care

I won’t pretend

It’s just a thought

I’ve said enough

Don’t you know life turns me

Always wants me

I can hardly pray

I could try

But don’t know what you hear

‘Cause in my heart

You were so clear

It’s just a thought

I’ve said enough

Don’t you know life turns me

Always wants me

I can hardly pray

On your stage

A show that you create

All by yourself

I am nowhere

You never noticed

You were so sure

Don’t you know life turns me

Always wants me

I can hardly pray

Portishead Undenied

Your softly spoken words

Release my whole desire

Undenied

Totally

And so bare is my heart, I can’t hide

And so where does my heart, belong

Beneath your tender touch

My senses can’t divide

Ohh so strong

My desire

For so bare is my heart, I can’t hide

And so where does my heart, belong

Now that I’ve found you

And seen behind those eyes

How can I

Carry on

For so bare is my heart, I can’t hide

And so where does my heart, belong

Belong

Belong

Belong

Portishead Over

I can’t hold this day

Anymore

Understand me

Anymore

To tread this fantasy, openly

What have I done

Ooh this uncertainty, is taking me over

I can’t mould this stage

Anymore

Recognise me

Anymore

To tread this fantasy, openly

What have I done

Ooh this uncertainty, is taking me over

is taking me over

To tread this fantasy, openly

What have I done

Ooh this uncertainty, is taking me over

is taking me over

is taking me over

Portishead Half Day Closing

In the days, the golden days

When everybody knew what they wanted

It ain’t here today

Through the times of lasting love

When parents talked of things tried and tested

It don’t feel the same

Dreams and belief have gone

Time, life itself goes on

Far beyond the shrinking skies

Where money talks and leaves us hypnotised

It don’t pave the way

Underneath the fading sun

The silent sum of a businessman

Has left us choking

Dreams and belief have gone

Time, life itself goes on

In the days, the golden days

When everybody know what they wanted

It ain’t here today

Dreams and belief have gone

Time, life itself goes on

Portishead Its A Fire

Its a fire

These dreams they pass me by

This salvation I desire

Keeps getting me down

Cos we need to

Recognise mistakes

For time and again

So let it be known for what we believe in

I can see no reason for it to fail…. …

Cos this life is a farce

I can’t breathe through this mask

Like a fool

So breathe on, sister breathe on

[INSTRUMENTAL]

From this oneself

Testify or tell

Its fooling us now

So let it be known for what we believe in

I can see no reason for it to fail…

Cos this life is a farce

I can’t breathe through this mask

Like a fool

So breathe on, little sister, breathe on

Ohh so breathe on, little sister, like a fool

Portishead Nylon Smile

I’d like to laugh at what you said

but I just can’t find a smile

I wonder why you can’t

I struggle with myself

hoping I might change a little

hoping that I might be someone I wanna be

looking out I want to know someone might care

looking out I want a reason to be there

cause I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve you

and I don’t know what I’ll do without you

looking out I want to know some way might clear

looking out I want a reason to repair

cause I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve you

and I don’t know what I’ll do without you

I can’t see nothing good

and nothing is so bad

I never had a chance

to explain exactly what I meant

Portishead Threads

Better if I could find the words to say

Whenever I take a choice it turns away

I’m worn, tired of my mind

I’m worn out, thinking of why

I’m always so unsure

I battle my thoughts I find I can’t explain

I’ve travelled so far but somehow feel the same

I’m worn, tired of my mind

I’m worn out, thinking of why

I’m always so unsure

I’m always so unsure

I’m worn, tired of my mind

I’m worn out, thinking of why

I’m always so unsure

I’m always so unsure

I’m always so unsure

I’m always so unsure

I’m always so unsure

I’m always so unsure

I am alive when I sleep

Why am I not in all that I got?

I can’t find no one to blame

Stand, stand, damned one

Damned one

Damned one

Damned one

I am one

Damned

One

Where do I go?
