only me, only you: lyrics: blue cartoon

i could tell by your smile – you don’t see the way that i do
all this time, in your arms – you’ve been poking me, like voodoo

i can’t tell if it’s only me or only you

we got close long ago – after you stepped up to meet me
i was fine, before you came – now i need someone to keep me

if it’s you – then i have tried
if it’s me – then i can’t see it
it was you – who paralyzed
if it’s me – i can’t explain it
i can’t tell if it’s only you or only me

then something cooled, when we got close – like a freeze frame in a movie
you pulled away like sliding glass – closed your eyes, but didn’t tell me

if it’s you – then i have tried
if it’s me – i can’t explain it

bridge

if it’s you – then i have tried
if it’s me – then i can’t see it
it was you – who paralyzed
if it’s me – i can’t explain it

can’t explain

do you feel : buzzie lyrics : the mind reels

when we’re done
there will be nothing left of you
i’ll let go
every little thought of you

do you want time? do you want love?
do you want anything… do you feel

what i’m sayin
you’re missing the very heart of me of me
fascination
trying to keep you here with me

do you want time? do you want love?
do you want anything… do you feel

bridge
do you feel
do you feel – me
or anyone

i want time
i want to be surrounded
i need time
and everything we use to be

do you want time? do you want love?
do you want anything… do you feel

Inside You (lyrics video) by Buzzie / with 2 Alt Versions

This song was imagined as a love song sounding directly inside the head of my listener through their headphones. When I wrote it, the iPod didn’t exist yet. Now the song makes even more sense, as headphones are probably to the most common way that people listen to music. And now my idea is complete. Listen to this song with headphones. Let the chorus wash in the space between your ears.

As an example of songwriting in motion, here is the original version, I recorded in my home studio. The song was practically written by the lush reverb effect that bounces around in your head.

And here is the Blue Cartoon version. Notice the subtle lyric changes.

It is fun to hear all three versions again. Each one has it’s own vibe. Thanks to my mates in Blue Cartoon for allowing me to republish this song.

Namasté,

she’s gone : buzzie lyrics : are you feeling anything yet

 

She’s alone, pretty face and a smile left out for me
She looks up, penetrates the darkness around me
Surrounding me…

She’s gone – now I’m sorry she was ever here
She’s gone – now I’m wishing she would reappear
She’s gone – I was hurting, even less…
When she was here

I can still feel her near, and the taste of her perfume
In my bed, on my tongue and in summers fading hue
We move on through the days, she was captured for a while
She was here yesterday, I don’t know if she’ll come todayCome today
She’s gone and am sorry she was ever here

She’s gone – now I’m sorry she was ever here
She’s gone – now I’m wishing she would reappear
She’s gone – I was hurting, even less…
When she was here

She moves on, I’m alone, but it feels like yesterday
She was here, in my arms, I don’t know if she’ll come today

last flowers : buzzie lyrics : radiohead cover : admitting there’s a problem

appliances have gone bazzerk – i can not keep up,
treading on people’s toes – nosed little punk
and i can’t face the evening straight
you can offer me escape
houses move and houses speak
if you take me than you’ll get relief

and if i’m gonna talk – I just want to talk
please don’t interrupt – just sit back and listen
cause I can’t face the evening straight
you can offer me escape
houses move and houses speak
if you take me then you’ll get relief

it’s too much
too bright too powerful

lyrics by radiohead
from the album In Rainbows (extra tracks)

the same thing : buzzie lyrics : are you feeling anything yet

 

wake up baby, I can’t sleep
must be the ghosts I keep
everywhere I go, they’re around again
when I think i know, here I go again

i’m in a tailspin
i’m in a daydream
i’m falling again
fallin for the same thing

kiss me baby i’m all right
as long as you’ll be here each night
every time I go, you’ll be round again
and when I don’t know, you can pull me in

when all the life i’ve left behind me
trips me up from time to time
i reach for you when the pain is blinding
i’m getting closer all the time

i wanna love you : buzzie lyrics : shooting beer cans off the buddha

i wanna love you

if i go away, i’ll miss you
i wanna say, here with you

and i wanna love you

i wanna stay here with you
and everyday, I’ll kiss you

and I wanna love you

walk way : buzzie lyrics : shooting beer cans off the buddha

walk away

i’d like to sit and listen to you, but it’s all the same
you could tell me what to do, here it comes again

and so I walk away
and then I …

i can’t tell you where I’m going, I’d have to know where I am
I’m leaving with a bitter tear, won’t be round again

and so I walk away
and then I run

somethings tears don’t wash away
you’re saing things you shouldn’t say
and with I’m sorry comes the day
and with I’m sorry comes the day

And when I saw you yesterday, well I hummed this song
There’s nothing left of you in me, I’ve just moved along

and then I walk away
and then I run

somethings tears don’t wash away
you’re saying things you shouldn’t say
and with I’m sorry comes the day
and with I’m sorry comes the day
