The Cooper Temple Clause New Toys

We came we played we drifted away

We came we played but it got away oh no

What’s happening to us?

We came we played we drifted away

We came we played but it got away oh no

What’s happening to us?

Well I’ll just shut my eyes ’til we get back home

‘Til we touch back down and keep playing dumb

And I’m carving my own little masterpiece

Go ahead cut deep but don’t tell the boys

I tried but now I can’t feel a thing

Just gagged and bound and clipped at the wings oh no

What’s happening to us?

I tried but now I can’t feel a thing

Just gagged and bound and clipped at the wings oh no

What’s happening to us?

Well I’ll just shut my eyes ’til we get back home

‘Til we touch back down and keep playing dumb

And I’m carving my own little masterpiece

Go ahead cut deep but don’t tell the boys

And I’ll just shut my eyes ’til we get back home

‘Til we touch back down and keep playing dumb

And I’m carving my own little masterpiece

Go ahead cut deep but don’t tell the boys

The Cooper Temple Clause Waiting Game

From the littlest things

And the pain that it brings

Down to the things you miss the most

But you won’t let yourself go

No you won’t let yourself

‘Cos time and time again

We feel the load a little more

But if you let yourself go

Then we won’t hit that road

‘Cos I can see the sky

But it’s yours to be seen

If you can be with someone else

If you can let yourself go

If you can let yourself

But is this the time

Is this the place

And is this the end

Is all I can say

I promise I never meant to turn you away

Why did you trust me with your heart

So consider the things

From the pain that it brings

Down to the things you miss the most

And if you let yourself go

Well the next thing you know

I have seen this guy

And he’s looking at me

Yeah and he thinks I’m something else

So you can walk yourself home

Yeah you can go

Even though you waited

I know that you can begin on your own

You can begin on your own

But is this the time

Is this the place

And is this the end

Is all I can say

I promise I never meant to turn you away

Why did you trust me with your heart

I promise that I never meant to turn you away

Why did you trust me with your heart

The Cooper Temple Clause Music Box

This is my music box

And this is my home

Come in take a look if you like

Just you on your own

But don’t make your mind up

Cos it’s not done yet

Yeah this is my music box

In a state of regret

Cos you drag me down

Yeah you drag me down

But I’ve had a plague of late

A niggle of doubt

Yeah I’ve had questions of conscience

Of what this is about

Can anyone hear me these days

Have I lost my tongue

Did I lose the battle sweet stuff

Before I’d begun

Cos I am a private man

Or am I a whore

We’ll settle the bill first then

Well we’ll settle the score

Yeah this is my music box

My pride and my joy

Come in take a seat look around

Say hi to the boys

Yeah this is my music box

And this is my home

Yeah this is my sanctuary

Now leave me alone

Cos you drag me down

Yeah you drag me down

The Cooper Temple Clause Talking To A Brick Wall

I’m not quite how I should be

been finding tricks too hard

I’m thinking something must be broken

Cause it’s wasn’t like this before

Now everyone is ugly and everyone is stoned

Small things about you excite me

But then I’d hate to spoil the tone

All my little somethings just ran out of luck

Secret dates with strangers

Dirty words and fighting talk

I’m so scared it’s killed me

Time and time again

I can’t live with compromise

So maybe we could talk as friends?

If at first you don’t succeed try again for me

Today is going to be fine

tomorrow will be fine too

I asked for things to better me

Even though they silenced my soul

I can taste is just for a second and then it disappears

The flowers look like glitter but then so do you my dear

It’s in the way that you look

It’s in the books that won’t read

It comes and goes like a friend

It’s with me right ’til the end

It’s in the memories I’ve lost

It’s concentrating too much

It’s breaking down of relations

And it’s the beat of the clock

It’s not being able to be explain

Or get your feelings across

It’s in the pain that won’t leave you

It’s coming straight back for us

It’s in a new lease of life

And a search that ends well

It’s in finding that change

It’s being happy again

The Cooper Temple Clause Digital Observations

I guess i’m not the kind of boy

Who’s seen it all before

Anymore

I thought i’d figured out the way

To see the sunny side

Of the day

Making plans, making good

And keep on asking on

Could it be so good

I’ll have to sit and calculate

Think myself a mess

For the best

It seems i have to complicate

All the thing i see

Lucky me

And when you all go out to play

I’ll keep an eye on you

For a clue

Cos i won’t take it anymore

Being the jealous one

In the sun

And when i come and see the light

Heaven help you all

At the sight

Cos fireworks and movie screens

Can’t prepare you all

For the scene

All my plans making good

I can’t stop thinking now it’ll be so good

Cos now it seems I’m all the rage

Such a tender heart

Such and early age

Now tell me where the hell were you

When i was the only one

Who couldn’t see the sun

All my plans making good

I can’t stop thinking now

It could be so good?

The Cooper Temple Clause Take Comfort

To think I showed such promise, such potential as a lover

but I guess I had my hands full with myself without another

to occupy my fancies to take food amongst the words ??

hell I should’ve known I’d never come up with the goods ??

I never could

I will laugh and I won’t cry

and I’ll take comfort in ‘that someday I shall die’

I’ve said and I’ve done things in my time that’d make you shiver

I’ve spent time with wistful eyes just staring at the river

in the end I couldn’t even find the words you wanted me to say

in her heart she knows she never knew me anyway

what can I say?

I will laugh and I won’t cry

and I’ll take comfort in ‘that someday I shall die’

I will laugh and I won’t cry

and I’ll take comfort in ‘that someday I shall die’

Take for instance if you will a person you don’t care for

Not someone you hate just someone you’d turn off the phone for

Spare a thought for them because no matter how much they whine and they moan

There’s not a bad thing you can say about them they’ve not said when they’re alone

Pick up the phone

I will laugh and I won’t cry

and I’ll take comfort in ‘that someday I shall die’

I will laugh and I won’t cry

and I’ll take comfort in ‘that someday I shall die’

The Cooper Temple Clause Who Needs Enemies?

My oh my, i’m seeing the potential

Lets just see what we can do

Looks like it’s your lucky day

A killer key change

But who needs enemies

When you’ve got friends

Now your hands are tied

And who needs accidents

When you’ve got me

Now i’m on your side

Now lets try and teach you how to mingle

Then we’ll teach you how to kill

Lies will always be your best of best friends

Never be alone again

A killer key change

Is all you’ll ever need

[chorus]

All these animals

That you call friends

Now they’re on their knees

Man, you tricked ’em all

You played the fool

So damn easy to please

I made my name in function rooms

And drifting through the walls

Come on let me teach you boy

Teach you ’bout it all

[chorus]

All these animals

That you call friends

Now they’re on their knees

Man, you tricked ’em all

You played the fool

So damn easy to please

The Cooper Temple Clause Did You Miss Me?

Did you miss me?

I bet you did?

Did you miss me?

And what I did?

How’s it going kid?

Hows the love life?

Not good?

Good

Im back now

Back with what I got

But its not for sale

Its for someone else

Someone beautiful

Someone who loves

Not you

She screams my name

Yeah she makes me rise

With the look in her eyes that you will never give

And she knows just how to hit the spot

She gives it all shes got

Then

Shit I blow my top

And we kiss

And we writhe

And this is everything I miss with you

And no matter how hard you try

With each and every lie

You’ll never scream my name

She can scream my name

The Cooper Temple Clause Murder Song

As he sits on the moor

With his new found friend

Who had shown him the way

To bow out at the end

With a dignity only

A murder can bring

With sweet violation

That versatile thing

Please believe me when i say

This is how it has to end

This is easy on us all

Well easier than other ways

Sleep is all i ask of you

Sleep and not to wake again

See this through and leave my friend

Tears will come and i will end

While i hope you all miss me

And weep at my grave

I imagine you’ll pray some

And give hope to the brave

To the ones who have loved me

And cared for me

And who die when i tell them

I just had to go

Please believe me when i say

This is how it has to end

This is easy on us all

Well easier than other ways

Sleep is all i ask of you

Sleep and not to wake again

See this through and leave my friend

Sears will come and i will end

The Cooper Temple Clause House Of Cards

Turn off this fire

Switch off the lights

It’s time to retire

It’s no time to fight

This house is in pieces

I never saw it falling

It was such a beautiful thing

What does it matter now

You’ll never come home

What does it matter now

You’ll never come home with me again

Not now

I burst the bubbles

And I broke you’re heart

It seems I’m in trouble

Let’s go back to the start

‘Cos all I want is you

And all I have is wrong

And just to have you in the place where you belong

You understand me when I don’t even understand myself

What does it matter now

You’ll never come home
