The Frames The Blood

When you look and find

You(‘ve) lost your place

To the girl behind

With the honest face

Ain’t that the way..

And your heroes

They pass by on broken feet

With the girls they find

Between the roof and street

On a thin escape

And I can’t explain where the blood goes

And I can’t explain cause I don’t know

It finds a way

And the wise, they talk of honesty

While the boats, they keep pointing

Always set for sea

And a fool’s escape

And there’s a note, I found

Reminding me, not to wait

That you’d come and look for me

And not to wait

And I can’t explain where the love goes

And I can’t explain cause I don’t know

It finds a way

Ohhhh, ooooh, ooooh

The Frames Stars Are Underground

The stars are underground

And the proof is flying overhead

So kick me when I’m down

And I’ll be the one you’re laughing about now

I don’t know if its real

Or how I’m supposed to feel now

That I’m out of your life

And into the darkness

And out of the darkness I’m coming now

When I’m out of your sight

And into the blackness

I drag myself along

Not sure of how I got in here

Well I must have done you wrong

Cause you always insist on telling me

Now how it feels

That I’m out of your life and into the darkness

And out of the darkness I’m coming now

When I’m out of your sight

And into the blackness

Tell Mairéad that you saw me

And see how they follow

When the piper plays the song

The Frames In This Boat Together

Well I never want to land

‘Cause I’m high on you

Beyond all sleight of hand

And tell me if you’re sure

And I won’t pretend to fall down anymore

‘Cause you’re all I really want

Headlong, I’m falling in headlong

And act a little braver

And the lies that try to trip you

Will be my slaves

And tell me if you’re sure

And the precious, precious waiting I’ve endured

‘Cause you’re all I’ll ever want

Headlong, I’m falling in headlong

Headlong, I’m falling in headlong

The Frames Early Bird

The early bird he slips away

And he lives to fly another day

He only serves to point the way

That you should or should not return

Two simple birds that never stray

When the lights go out on us

Just before when we we’re found

Will not rush it, will enjoy it

Will not touch it, will rejoice it

The early bird he knows his place

And he’ll stay all day there if he has to

He never hides or runs away

When the voices crowd on his

Cry so loud that you will die

Will not rush it, will enjoy it

Will not touch it, will rejoice it

Where did this come from

How long has this been going on

Where is it from

I feel my wheels are turning

I see the sky falling on every face

Telling us now that we ought to stay

I feel my wheels are turning

I see the open road before us stretch

Leading us somewhere past the hour

The Frames The Dancer (Acoustic Version)

She was in a class of 44 beautiful dancers

And I watched her pirouette around the stars

In her poms

And I must have told her one thousand times

In my mind, that I loved her

I got drunk one night, she was on the steps

She touched my shoulder

oh oh oh oh

I was young and full of grace

When I stepped into the fire, with my dancer

She had barely come of age

But she was egging me on, all the way down

And I told her as the ship sank

That I loved her

And I told her as we walked off of the plank

I was all hers

Oh oh oh oh

Step 2, 3, 4, jump 2, 3, 4

Step 2, 3, 4, jump 2, 3, 4

Step 2, 3, 4, jump 2, 3, 4

Step 2, 3, 4, and jump

That’s good

The Frames God Bless Mom

God bless mom

Best of all

Spread your wings

Fly or fall

You’ll see how hard it can be

To keep your side of the deal

And you’ll see how hard it can be

To keep one foot in the real

God bless you

Strong and true

Stay at home

Good as gold

And you’ll see how hard it can be

To keep your side of the deal

And you’ll see how hard it can be

To keep one foot in the real

The Frames Hollocaine

Well I never want to land

‘Cause I’m high on you

Beyond all sleight of hand

And tell me if you’re sure

And I won’t pretend to fall down anymore

‘Cause you’re all I really want

Headlong, I’m falling in headlong

And act a little braver

And the lies that try to trip you

Will be my slaves

And tell me if you’re sure

And the precious, precious waiting I’ve endured

‘Cause you’re all I’ll ever want

Headlong, I’m falling in headlong

Headlong, I’m falling in headlong

The Frames Fitzcarraldo

Here, back, down a long and straight track

I have chose the long road

That leads me out to god knows

So I can’t stop right now

Even the good stars can fall from grace and falter

Lose their faith and slide

But I can’t get an ocean that’s deep enough for my day

It’s the first of the ascension

It’s a sad way we’ve flown after the storm

And her last words were “I was only thinking of you”

In my golden days I was a slave

Well now it’s time for to sound your voice

And capture what you’re after

My ship was sold right up the river

But I’m not going down here

This journey isn’t over

It’s a long way to the house of Fitzcarraldo

And her last words were “I’m always thinking of you”

In my golden days I was a saint

Even the good stars can fall from grace and falter

Like lapdogs that stride that mystery

And her last words were “I’ll see you down in history”

It’s the only way that we can go

I shall eclipse you

It’s a long way to Fitzcarraldo

I don’t want to pray for you

In the name of something true

The Frames People Get Ready

People all get ready

‘Cause we’re tearing down the stand

Rebuild what’s gone unsteady

And see it through with newer hands

And what has gone between us

Is a lot, is a lot

And who’ll be there to clean us

When you’re not, when you’re not

People all get ready

‘Cause we’re breaking down again

Rebuild what’s gone unsteady

And see it through with wiser hands

And what has gone before us

Is a lot, is a lot

And who’ll be there to ignore us

When you’re not, when you’re not

We have all the time in the world

To get it right, to get it right

We have all the love in the world

To set alight, to set alight

People all get ready

‘Cause we’re breaking down the bands

Rewrite what’s gone already

And see it through with angry hands

And what has gone before us

Is a lot, is a lot

And who’ll be there to ignore us

When you’re not, when you’re not

And we have all the time in the world

To get it right, to get it right

And we have all the love in the world

To set alight, to set alight

Just look up, just look up

And we have all the time in the world

To get it right, to get it right

And we have all the love in the world

To set alight, to set alight

Just look up, just look up

People all get ready

‘Cause we’re coming to a stop

The Frames Sideways Down

Maybe I should just move along

But you know I’d draw blood if that’s what you want

And you found someone who makes you laugh

Who’d stick around but that’s not what you want

You slipped at the start

And dragged the whole thing sideways down

And everybody fucks up

It’s just something that’s been going ’round

And you found someone who said he’d stay

Who’d give it all but that’s not good enough

You’re standing alone

And you’re waiting alone cause you don’t know what you want

And you’re living alone

And your wondering now, cause you don’t know what you’ve done

Maybe I should just disappear for now

Then maybe you could see a little clearer now

And you found some one who makes you laugh

Who promised you he’d never let you down

And you blame it on your broken heart

But everyone who reaches out gets stung

Now you’re standing alone

And you’re waiting alone cause you don’t know what you want

And you’re living alone

And you’re wondering now cause you don’t know what you’ve done

Maybe I should just move along

But you know I’d draw blood

If that’s what you want
