The Stills Allison Krausse

So what do I say? So what can I say?

The cards out on the table, Allison

She lied and said she was a virgin

And I asked which, which version?

The cards out on the table, Allison, Allison

So what do you say? So what do I pay?

The cards out on the table, the cards out on the table

Lay down on the table, Allison, Allison, Allison

The Stills Love & Death

I’ll make my own way; I’ll make my own way

Don’t bother counting on me, loving me, just act like I’m gone

Well this sorry joker joke, it’s all we really need

There’s nothing that I need

Too late and too bad, I’m stuck feeling bad

Without you, I’m a mess, without you, you just don’t know

This is really not a joke; you’re all I really need, you’re all I really need

And I’m just so bored of wasting my time

Love and death always on my mind

And I’m just so sick of wasting my time

Love and death always on my mind

I’ll make my own way; I’ll make my own way

Don’t bother counting on me, loving me, just act like I’m gone

Oh, this sorry joke, a joke, it’s all we really need

There’s nothing that I need

And I’m just so bored of wasting my time

Love and death always on my mind

And I’m just so sick of wasting my time

Love and death always on my mind

The Stills Everything I Build

The tide is high

I’ve never been so low

You got room to grow

You can never look up

You can’t ever look down

You get kicked around

But I built it with sand

And I built it with rock

I built it with all of the

Things that I’m not

And I watch from the hill

As it burns to the ground

I can still see the smoke

From my train out of town

Everything I build is breaking down

Everything I build is breaking down

I close my eyes

Scared of what I saw

Are you mad at all?

Been an open book

Been a slamming door

Apple of the trojan war

Everything I build is breaking down

Everything I build is breaking down

Drink a little bit

Dance a little bit

Take a chance

I lose it all

I have no remorse no regrets

When I’m hanging from

This seventeenth floor

The tide is high

Never been so low

You got room to grow

Everything I build is breaking down

Everything I build is breaking down

The Stills In The Beginning

This story ends

In bloodshed

The face I love

The city I’m from

The persons I’ve met

The persons I’ve let down

But a hero never turns around

It’s nice to see you’re moving on

I know it’s hard to carry on

But it’s just never what it was

In the Beginning

How did this start?

And where did we begin

In a ball of fire

And stars and suns

And that brings me here, now

Where my heart’s caving in

A tornado whips in around the poles

And it’s raining

In a Ball of Fire

The Stills Destroyer

And you don’t seem to miss me

And you’re eyes sag

So don’t make a goddamn sound

I’m coming to your town

I will destroy you

Your soul impedes on mine

Let go my free will

I can’t stand compromise

Only when you’re dead

I’ll make you mine

And the arrows are pointed

And the archer’s delighted

The thrill, the smell

The shit I’ve been put through

An angel to no one

I hate you and you’re blood

So don’t make a goddamned sound

Cause I’m coming

To your town

The Stills She’s Walking Out

Dead of winter, desolate grey

White and silver home

Climb the staircase, spiderwalk

Into my bed and bones

Can I stand the pain

Of all the things I’ve left behind

Caught with butterflies

We’ll be regretting ’til we die

She’s walking out on me

Darker early, four o’clock

We’ll leave in a balloon

Thirteen crows are dragging

You and me up to the roof

Blow out all the candles

Let the wine flow to your brain

No ages, no one changes

No one’s trying to

The Stills Eastern Europe

You hit Eastern Europe

With a broken heart

And when you came back the town was gone

Now every little step that you take feels wrong

And I’m here acting chicken

Remember

Kissing, making love

In the rolling Black Sea

Underwater

Slipping your tongue

Through my teeth

A million years later alone in dreams

The night is howling

Listen

The sun shines down

On my whole world now

Pouring over everything

That we know

A little bit of soul

In the bottle that I drink down

Fucked up

Singing to the Heavens above

Kissing the bricks of the home I was born in

Stars all full of song

Go

Guns in the distance

Drums in the deep

A train rolls home, the countryside sleeps

Our love is blowing, all over the streets

You can hear it howling

Listen

The Stills Of Montreal

The falling free on, it’s turning me on

It drips on the street, the sun cries from the heat

I love feeling beat, I’ll kiss the lipstick on your teeth

Friends getting old, we all dig for gold

The crumbs and pieces, the dead mess in the sink

Turning me on, Turning me on

The night’s so happy, the base drum heavy

The photo glossy, the people pretty

Turning me on… [4x]

The Stills Lola Stars And Stripes

We all need to feel secure and so middle-class

But I’m still waiting for next week’s chemical blast

Don’t go feelin’ insecure, no feelin’ sad

With an M-16, you’ll feel the surge of you’re American past

But are you afraid, you always said the world will never last

And Lola I’m not afraid, if you star-wipe all your past away

And the sun comes one more day

Lola, Lola,

Will the world end? Me and you

Lola, Lola,

No we’re never going to make it through

Can you take me back to that place where stars glow?

Comets swarm like fireflies outside your window

But are you afraid, you always said the world will never last

And Lola I’m not afraid, if you star-wipe all your past away

And the sun comes one more day

Lola, Lola,

Will the world end? Me and you

Lola, Lola,

No we’re never going to make it through

Lola… [4x]

The Stills Snow In California

Like snow in California

Signs from up on high

Bring things back to life now

Bring things back to life

Oh, the world is changing

Mayan calendar ends

Oh, the world is changing

So rally up your friends

I lost my way out

In a land of darkness, end of light

With no one left here

To show me how I died

Like snow in California

Signs from up on high

Bring things back to life now

Bring things back to life

Oh, the world is changing

Mayan calendar ends

Oh, the world is changing

So rally up your friends

I lost my way out

In a land of darkness, end of light

I lost my way out

In a land of darkness, end of light

With no one left here

To show me how I died

Like snow in California

Signs from up on high

Bring things back to life now

Bring things back to life

Bring things back to life now

Bring things back to life

Bring things back to life now

Bring things back to life
