Roisin Murphy Footprints

Footprints in the morning snow

You’ve got me rocking like an echo, echo

Fresher than the daisy eaves

It drives me crazy when you play me this

Footprints in the morning snow

You’ve got me rocking like an echo, echo

Fresher than the daisy eaves

It drives me crazy when you play me this

Teddy bear

Baby, can we take it slowly?

‘Cause I’m a junky for love

But we can still have a party

Take care

‘Cause baby, I’m a dirty flower

But I could still open up

Just like a beautiful orchid

Footprints in the morning snow

You’ve got me rocking like an echo, echo

Fresher than the daisy eaves

It drives me crazy when you play me this

Footprints in the morning snow

You’ve got me rocking like an echo, echo

Fresher than the daisy eaves

It drives me crazy when you play me this

Teddy bear

Can we take it softly, softly?

Just let me fix up for love

And we could still get it started

Steady there

Let me maybe talk you through it

Just ’cause this feeling’s for real

Don’t mean you know how to do it

Footprints in the morning snow

You’ve got me rocking like an echo, echo

Fresher than the daisy eaves

It drives me crazy when you play me this

Take a chance on a night romance for you

For a change, gonna do what I have to do

Footprints in the morning snow

You’ve got me rocking like an echo, echo

Fresher than the daisy eaves

It drives me crazy when you play me this

Footprints in the morning snow

You’ve got me rocking like an echo, echo

Fresher than the daisy eaves

It drives me crazy when you play me this

Footprints in the morning snow

You’ve got me rocking like an echo, echo

Fresher than the daisy eaves

It drives me crazy when you play me this

Footprints in the morning snow

You’ve got me rocking like an echo, echo…

Roisin Murphy If We’re In Love

If we’re in love

If we’re in love

If we’re in love we should make love

Where the sun it never sets

And where the wind forgets

I will forget you

Where the sky goes on for miles

And never ties of an improbable blue

When the supreme mysteries

Decide to reveal all to us

And make an endless night

Still I will come to remember

If we’re in love we should make love

If we’re in love we should make love

If we’re in love we should make love

When will we be lovers?

If we’re in love we should make love

If we’re in love we should make love

If we’re in love we should make love

When will that be?

I’m gonna forget you

When the rivers stop and turn to run

To where they’ve begun

Back up the mountainside

When the sun it comes to the night to play

And like I do just sleep all day

When the moon and the stars turn to the light

Not in the dark of night

But in the morning sky

When the roses turn to bloom

Not in June—but in the bitter cold of December

There’s not a

There’s not a joy in this whole world to give

There’s not a joy

As lovely as the bird that flew away

Last night I

I think I dreamt a

Beautiful song

But when I woke

The birds had flown

And it was gone

If we’re in love we should make love

If we’re in love we should make love

If we’re in love we should make love

When will we be lovers?

If we’re in love we should make love

If we’re in love we should make love

If we’re in love we should make love

When will that be?

Roisin Murphy Ramalama

Bang, bang!

Could a body close the mind out?

Stitch a seam across the eye?

If you can be good, you’ll live forever

If you’re bad, you’ll die when you die

Hearing only one true note

On the one and only sound

Unzip my body

Take my heart out

Cause I need a beat to give this tune…

Taking a picture

Oh the body swayed to music

Oh the lightning glance

If I would give it all and all

Maybe you would hear me

Ask for half a chance

Hearing only one root note

Planted firmly in the ground

Undo my heart, unzip my body and

Lend to my ear a clear and a deafening sound

Unzip my heart

And if I need a rhythm

It’ll be to my heart I listen

If it don’t put me too far wrong

(And if I, and if I)

Everybody smile please

Nobody pay no mind to me

Finger in position on the switch

A little flash photography

Taking a picture of you

Taking a picture of

Taking a picture of me

Taking a picture

Roisin Murphy Parallel Lives

My ring kept him on, been learning fast

I just got you wrong, it’s not built to last, it’s not built to last

Time keeps on tripping on, though I learn my lessons fast

And it was time for me to cut and run

And if I ever do the past, you’re not the only one, we’re living

Parallel lives

Oh, you’re not the only one

We’re so entwined to lose it

To the passing of time

Oh, we came undone

We came untied, we came untied

We live separate lives, can’t even organize

One more meeting of minds ain’t gonna make it right, no

There’s more humanity in just letting it be now

‘Cause I can’t seem to justify when we’re living separate dreams

Have we forgotten love, we’re lost in

Parallel lives

Oh, you’re not the only one

We’re so entwined to lose it

To the passing of time

Oh, we came undone

We came untied, we came untied

Parallel lives

Oh, you’re not the only one

We’re so entwined to choose it

To the passing of time

Oh, we came undone

We came untied, we came untied

Are we chose to give it

Are we chose to live it, our separate lives?

Got too close to heaven

But are we too driven in a parallel light?

All because we chose to live it

Are chose to give in our separate lives?

Got too close to heaven

Well, are we too driven in a parallel light?

What were we destined for, to live in

Parallel lives

Oh, you’re not the only one

We’re so entwined to lose it

To the passing of time

Oh, we came undone

We came untied, we came untied

Parallel lives

Oh, you’re not the only one

We’re so entwined to choose it

To the passing of time

Oh, we came undone

We came untied, we came untied

Roisin Murphy Gone Fishing

I am uncommon sense

Close to abandonment

Learning, concerning

The different between do or die

Each step taken away from

A place of hopelessness

Takes me closer

To building another kind of family nest

There is no inclusion for sick and tired

Nobody close to us and recognize

Only exclusion for us, out there

Only delusion for her, sits in despair

I can’t taste, so beautifully dressed

In the moment will feel this

I fear I could get to feel this

Destined to upon my name

Have around this far from home

The children of the day [?]

My new friends are like that

Mechanism I’m so alive in this

Children of god, the children of the passion

Found a place to express myself

Go on ahead, shadows hold

Circle into the board to get my prayers

Expensive things as cheap as thrill

No such thing as overkill

Children of god, the children of the passion

There is no inclusion for sick and tired

Nobody close to us and recognize

Only exclusion for us, out there

Only delusion for her, sits in despair

Roisin Murphy Evil Eyes

There where I’ve been and the things I’ve seen

Well I just try remembering

That in their dreams those Kings and Queens

Are feeling just the way I feel

Agi-magic-la-talagy

To see it all again anew

That this is all I have to do

To get to you

Hocus

Hocus pocus

Out of the realm of a dark material

Opus

New modus

Can’t describe adequately

This ethereal dream

Makin’ love’s only make believe

It’s possible to be achieved

If you’re brave enough to take the lead

Invention always follows need

I have come to claim my prize

To kiss you on your tired eyes

My hopes and dreams are realised

The moment I’ve made up my mind

Focus

If I just focus

If I superstitiously believe

This wish will come true

(I wish for you)

Evil eye

I’ll keep you by my side

This evil eye

Has powers I would prize

Your strange magic play

Keep me from harm’s way

I’ve witnessed, Eye

It’s mystery claim

Gonna put those demons in their place

(Get to know)

Gonna slap myself across the face

(Comings and goin’)

Gotta face my demons all the day

(You know it)

The devil’s work is made by idle hands

(Comings and goin’)

Gonna put them demons in their place

(Get to know it)

Gonna slap myself across the face

(As long as you know it)

Gotta face my demons all the day

(You know it)

The devil’s work is made by idle hands

(Comings and goin’)

Gonna put those demons in their place

Hocus

Hocus pocus

Out of the heavens we fell

With a formula

Roisin Murphy Ruby Blue

You’d better stop

And try to think

Look what you’re doing

Oh, Ruby

You never get to

Give it all you got

Cause you forgot

To take it to the top

Come On

Ruby Blue

Why do you make a start

With no means to go on?

It’s on the tip of your…

Ruby, we used to love you truly

You used to make us laugh

It really was a gas…

But now you’re a bore

One

Two

Three

It was you

And them

And me

Look what you do

Oh, Ruby Blue

You’d better stop

And try to think

Look what you’re doing

Oh, Ruby

You never get to

Give it all you’ve got

Cause you forgot

To take it to the top

Come on Ruby Blue

Ah Yeah

Nobody cares anyway

If you play the painted lady

Four and more and

Five and six

Who would have believed

It would come to this?

Look what you do

Oh, Ruby Blue

You’d better stop

And try to think

Look what you’re doing

Oh, Ruby

You never get to

Give it all you’ve got

Cause you forgot

To take it to the top

Oh Ruby Blue

One

Two and

Three

Look what you’re doing

Ah Ruby

And them

And ME

Look what you do

Oh, Ruby Blue

Roisin Murphy Scarlet Ribbons

From the cradle to the floor

My flesh and my bones

Is that the way it’s supposed to be

How the story goes

Ribbons and bones

Like a thorn on a rose

When the one man who gave it all to you

Has to let you go

He found for me scarlet ribbons

Scarlet ribbons for my hair

What becomes of a father’s love

When another has his daughter’s love

Don’t you know they’ll never be here but

I’ll always be your little girl

It’s all borrowed time

And you always said I would regret it

If I grew up to fast

But my heart is strong and true

I’m doing fine

The things that you said

I won’t forget them

I’ll do as you ask

And always play fair for you

You found for me scarlet ribbons

Those scarlet ribbons for my hair

What becomes of a father’s love

When another has his daughter’s love

Don’t you know they’ll never be here but

I’ll always be your little girl

There’s a part of you

In every part of me (should know better)

Maybe you should know

I won’t let that go

As long as I can cry on your shoulder

Won’t be growing up

Just older

You have got to let me go

You found for me scarlet ribbons

Those scarlet ribbons for my hair

What becomes of a father’s love

When another has his daughter’s love

Don’t you know they’ll never be here but

I’ll always be your little girl

I’ll always be, always be your little girl

Always be, always be your little girl

Always be, always be your little girl

Always be your little girl

You have got to let it go, oh oh

You have got to let it go

You have got to let it go, oh

You have got to let it go

You have got to let it go, oh oh

You have got to let it go

Roisin Murphy Ten Miles High

Let’s ride ten miles up

Just inside the stratosphere

More sky, more blue jets

Stream by, you’re gonna love it here

Let’s fly ten miles up

Just outside the atmosphere

We’ll climb, oh straight up

Set aside your rational fear

Goodbye, oh little cruel world

Never again will I ever be grounded on Earth or be bound by the hurt in you

Blue eyes offer a brave new world

Out in the starry skies of paradise found

As we rise so far above

Our little lights, in miniature

And even your eyes can be transfixed

Knock, knock, knock it down, your heavenly door!

(One mile into the sight, something’s pulling me back)

One mile in, it keeps pulling me back

(Ten miles [?])

Have you got to ever leave?

(Feeling’s coming now, no turning back)

Higher now, there’s no turning back

(Ten miles gone in the blink)

Gone in the blink of an eye

Goodbye, oh little cruel world

Never again will I ever be grounded on Earth or be bound by the hurt in you

Blue eyes offer a brave new world

Out in the starry skies of paradise found

Lift me off the ground

Then I look down

Sing a sad goodbye

The city is a toy town

Left the law behind

Straight up for miles

Or you can hang down

An alternative never given very much for you

Never be ten miles high

We’ll defy right by your side

Come fill your eyes with its majesty

The tears you’ll cry in the water mist

Leave it all behind and come with me

Goodbye, cruel world

Never again will I ever be grounded on Earth or be bound by the hurt in you

Blue eyes, brave new world

Out in the starry skies of paradise found

Roisin Murphy Don’t You Agree?

With my heart and with my skin

From time to time and back again

With my skin and with my soul

How each one smiles when she’s alone

And here we are, Convention Center

Traveled so far ‘cross many rivers

No time to rest, no time to sleep

Keep movin’ on, my tired feet

Sometimes we need a hero

Can’t make it on our own

Sometimes you need a strong man

With seize of all control

[Chorus:]

Don’t you agree, agree with me?

Don’t you agree, don’t you agree?

Don’t you agree, agree with me?

Don’t you agree, don’t you agree?

Who needs a chair whose roof has leaks?

The children’s name, what each one did

Got my people everywhere

The bellboys and operators

Who stood up to the Japanese?

Who cares about the Philippines?

He built a house, I decorate

I’m telling all, you delegate

[Chorus]

Sometimes you need a hero

Can’t make it on our own

Sometimes you need a strong man

With things of all control

Don’t you agree, agree with me?

Don’t you agree, agree with me?

Don’t you agree, don’t you agree?

[Chorus x2]

Don’t you agree?

(Don’t you agree?)

Agree with me

(Agree with me)

Don’t you agree?

(Don’t you agree?)

Agree with me

(Agree with me)

Don’t you agree?

(Don’t you agree?)

Agree with me

(Agree with me)

Don’t you agree?

(Agree with me)
