Katie Melua - Belfast

I've got a ticket to the fast city, 
Where the bells don't really ring, 
Getting off the plane the cold air, 
Rushes like bullets through my brain. 

And I'm divided 
Between penguins and cats, 
But it's not about what animal you've got, 
It's about being able to fly, 
It's about dying nine times. 

Walked on Broadway, 
Going up to Falls, 
Where the old man I used to know, 
The paintings on the walls of release, 
Are colourful but they are no Matisse. 

And I'm divided 
Between penguins and cats, 
But it's not about what animal you've got, 
It's about being able to fly, 
It's about dying nine times. 

It's about being able to fly, 
It's about dying nine times. 

Katie Melua - Blame it on the moon

Gonna blame it on the moon, 
Didn't want to fall in love again so soon. 
I was fine, feeling strong, 
Didn't want to fall in love with anyone. 

Now that it's gone too far to call for a halt, 
I'll blame it on the moon 'cause it's not my fault; 
I didn't think that this would happen so soon, 
So I'll blame it on the moon. 

I was happy, to be free 
Didn't think I'd give myself so easily. 
Guilty feelings in the night 
As I wonder is it wrong to feel so right? 

Now that it's gone too far to call for a halt, 
I'll blame it on the moon 'cause it's not my fault; 
I didn't think that this would happen so soon, 
So I'll blame it on the moon. 

Now that it's gone too far to call for a halt, 
I'll blame it on the moon 'cause it's not my fault; 
I didn't think that this would happen so soon, 
So I'll blame it on the moon, 
So I'll blame it on the moon. 

Katie Melua - Call off the search

I won't spend my life 
Waiting for an angel to descend 
Searching for a rainbow with an end 
Now that I've found you 
I'll call off the search 

And I won't spend my life 
Gazing at the stars up in the sky 
Wondering if love will pass me by 
Now that I've found you 
I'll call off the search 

Out on my own 
I Would never have known 
This world that I see today 
And I've got a feeling 
It won't fade away 

And I won't end my days 
Wishing that love would come along 
'Cause you are in my life 
Where you belong 
Now that I've found you I 
I'll call off the search 

Now that I've found you 
I'll call off the search 
Now that I've found you 
I'll call off the search 

Katie Melua - Closest Thing to Crazy

How can I think I'm standing strong, 
Yet feel the air beneath my feet 
How can happiness feel so wrong 
How can misery feel so sweet 
How can you let me watch you sleep, 
Then break my dreams the way you do 
How can I have got in so deep 
Why did I fall in love with you 

This is the closest thing to crazy 
I have ever been 
Feeling 22, acting 17, 
This is the nearest thing to crazy 
I have ever known, 
I was never crazy on my own: 
And now I know that there's a link between the two, 
Being close to craziness and being close to you. 

How can you make me fall apart 
Then break my fall with loving lies 
It's so easy to break a heart; 
It's so easy to close your eyes. 
How can you treat me like a child 
Yet like a child I yearn from you 
How can anyone feel so wild 
How can anyone feel so blue 

This is the closest thing to crazy 
I have ever been 
Feeling 22, acting 17, 
This is the nearest thing to crazy 
I have ever known, 
I was never crazy on my own: 
And now I know that there's a link between the two, 
Being close to craziness and being close to you. 

Katie Melua - Crawling up a hill

Every morning 'bout half past eight, 
My Mamma wakes me says, "Don't be late", 
Get to the office, tryin' to concentrate, 
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill. 

So I stop one day to figure it out, 
I'll quit my job without a shadow of a doubt, 
To sing the blues that I know about, 
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill. 

Minute after minute, second after second, 
Hour after hour goes by, 
Working for a rich girl, staying just a poor girl, 
Never stop to wonder why. 

So here I am in London town, 
A better scene I'm gonna be around, 
The kind of music that won't bring me down, 
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill.

Katie Melua - Faraway voice

Ooh, faraway voice, 
We can hear you voice, 
What's it like to be heard? 
But from you not a word, 

Are you over those hills? 
Do you still hum the old melodies? 
Do you wish people listened? 
Over here with me, 

Ooh, faraway voice, 
What I would give, would give 
To hear that voice, 
What's it like to breathe? 
My ears deceive me, voice. 

And I will walk with you 
On a summers day, 
And I will talk to you, 
Though you're far away, 
And we'll sing through the years. 

Are you over those hills? 
Do you still hum the old melodies? 
Do you wish people listened? 
Over here with me, 
Over here with me, 
Over here with me. 

Katie Melua - I think it's going to rain today

Broken windows and empty hallways 
A pale dead moon 
In a sky streaked with grey 
Human kindness is overflowing 
And I think it's going to rain today. 

Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles 
With frozen smiles to chase love away 
Human kindness is overflowing 
And I think it's going to rain today. 

Lonely, lonely 
Tin can at my feet 
Think I'll kick it down the street 
That's the way to treat a friend. 

Bright before me the signs implore me 
Help the needy and show them the way 
Human kindness is overflowing 
And I think it's going to rain today. 

Katie Melua - Learnin The Blues

The tables are empty, 
The dance floor deserted, 
You play the same love song, 
It's the tenth time you've heard it. 
That's the beginning, just one of the clues, 
You've had your first lesson 
In learnin' the blues. 

The cigarettes you light 
One after the other, 
Won't help you forget him 
When you're losing your lover. 
You're only burning a torch you can't lose, 
But you're on the right track, 
For learnin' the blues. 

When you're out in a crowd 
The blues will taunt you constantly, 
When you're out in a crowd 
The blues will haunt your memory. 

The nights when you don't sleep, 
The whole night you're cryin', 
But you cannot forget him, 
Soon you even stop tryin', 
You'll walk the floor, 
And wear out your shoes, 
When you feel your heart break 
You're learnin' the blues. 

Katie Melua - Lilac wine

I lost myself on a cool damp night 
I gave myself in that misty light 
Was hypnotised by a strande delight 
Under a lilac tree 
I made wine from the lilac tree 
Lost my heart in its recipe 
It made me see what I want to see 
And be what I want to be 

But I think more than I ought to think 
I do things I never should do 
I drink much more than I ought to drink 
Because it brings me back you... 

Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love 
Lilac wine, - I feel unsteady, like my love 
Listen to me... 
I cannot see clearly 
Isn't that he, coming to me 
Nearly here? 

Lilac wine is sweet and heady 
Where's my love? 
Lilac wine, - I feel unsteady 
Where's my love? 
Listen to me... 
Why is everything so hazy? 
Isn't that he, or am I going crazy? 

Lilac wine, I feel I'm ready 
for my love... 
Feel I'm ready for my love 

Katie Melua - Mockingbird song

Now hush now, Honey, here's the word 
My Baby's gonna buy me a mockingbird 
And if that mockingbird don't sing 
Baby's gonna buy me a diamond ring 
And if that diamond ring won't shine 
We'll still have a real good time 
So I'm making it clear 
Woah, woah. 

To this man that I have found 
I'm gonna sing the sweetest sound 
And if that sweetest sound won't rock 
I'm gonna buy him a music box 
And if that music box don't play 
He's gonna stay with me anyway 
So I'm making it clear 
Woah, woah. 

When that man and I are wed 
I'm gonna keep him warm in bed 
And when my man's no longer hot 
I'm gonna bring him a vodka shot 
And when that spirit's made him strong 
I'm gonna stay with him all night long 
I'll be holding on tightly 
Woah, woah. 

Katie Melua - My aphrodisiac is you

Some people say 
That oysters make you come on strong, 
But I don't buy it, 
I don't believe my diet turns me on. 
Won't take no pills, 
That's the last thing that I need to do, 
I can't deny it, my aphrodisiac is you. 

Alright, 
I could sniff some powdered rhino horn, 
And go to bed in rubber gloves. 
But I don't need no stimulation, 
potions, balms or embrocation, 
I'm in love, - in other words: 

Don't smoke no grass 
or opium from old Hong Kong, 
That hubble-bubble 
Just makes me see you double all night long. 
Don't waste my time 
With Spanish fly and roots to chew, 
They cause me trouble, 
Because my aphrodisiac is you. 

Alright, 
I could sniff some powdered rhino horn, 
And go to bed in rubber gloves. 
But I don't need no stimulation, 
potions, balms or embrocation, 
I'm in love, - in other words: 

Some people like 
To read the Khama Sutra first, 
But I don't need it, 
I think if I should read it I'd be worse! 
Don't ask me why, 
'Cause baby, I ain't got a clue. 
I just concede it, 
My aphrodisic is you. 

Katie Melua - Tiger in the night

You are the tiger burning bright 
Deep in the forest of my night 
You are the one who keeps me strong 
In this world 

You sleep by the silent cooling streams 
Down in the darkness of my dreams 
All of my life I never knew 
You were the dream I'd see come true 
You are the tiger burning bright 

I was the one who looked so hard 
I could not see 
And now I could never live 
Without the love you give to me 

I lived like a wild and lonely soul 
Lost in a dream beyond control 
You are the one who brought me home 
Down to earth 

For you are the tiger burning bright 
Deep in the forest of my night 
All of my life I never knew 
You were the dream I'd see come true 
You are the tiger burning bright
