Paulusma - Somehow Anyhow 2019

I See You Through

 

 

It would be nice to see you

Some other day

For duty calls

And i'm not up for it anyway 

Would be really nice to see you soon

And hold you in my arms

Whenever you're around     

 

Will you be there   

When i need you

O I promise

I'll take care of you

 

It would be nice to go out

For a walk

It's been a while

Since you and I have been in touch

Would be really nice to walk you home

I'd hold your hand for sure

I wouldn't ask for more

 

When you're lonely

I'll be there for you

We could go wild

We could leave it all behind

 

Wonderful you          

I see you through      

Whatever you do     

I see you through 

 No Harm Done

 

 

 Valerie is winding down the road

 Left hanging out to dry

 Looking for good times

 Shooting pool in bars around the corner   

 Playing till she turns into stone      

 

 Where the road seems a dead end street

 It's time to see

 The sun will rise again

 And by the time you hit that wall 

 Everything is under control     

 You come running home     

 

 Valerie is a troubled girl

 Playin all the boys

 Just making small talk               

 Shooting up around just about every corner 

 Tripping till she turns into stone   

 

 Where the road seems a dead end street

 It's time to see

 The sun will rise again

 But by the time you think you hit that wall

 

 Thunder's slowly rolling in

 Lightning strikes randomly

 Planes a-circling                                                                  

 Waiting to touch ground                                                     

 Thunderbolt and hurricanes    

 Make you fly high again            

'This is Ground Control to Major Tom'

 There's no harm done

 

 And by the time you think you hit the wall

 You come running home 

 Back home

Quiet Little Place

Take me out

The world appears 

A quiet little place

Quiet little place to hide

 

Take me out 

The world appears

A quiet little place to hide in

Quiet little place to hide in 

Fatherlike

 

 

After all these many years 

I'm a lot like you

Didn't plan to be that way    

But I'm a lot like you

 

And the truth is I'll be waiting

For the best to come

I am looking up to you      

You're my friend 

I'm your son

 

Fatherlike

Father's son

There's nothing much to choose

All the time I wasted on

Arguing with you

 

I don't care what some might say

We all have our faults  

I'll be following your way 

I don't mind getting old

 

And the truth is I'll be waiting

For the best to come

I am looking up to you      

You're my friend 

I'm your son

 

Fatherlike

Father's son

Getting closer to the truth

All the time I wasted on

Arguing with you

What a waste of time 

Was it wasted time?

Singer Without Song

 

 

This melody 

Inside your head

I don't understand

Why it sits there

Hey let it all come out

Yeah scream and shout   

It's been there way too long

 

But no matter the heat is on

You're just a singer without a song

And a singer without a song

Is a lousy ass singer 

 

This harmony 

You call your own

I can't figure out

Why we'd need that   

Hey let it all come out

Make me twist and shout

Play it fucking loud

 

And no matter the night is young

You're just a shooter without a gun

And a shooter without a gun

Is a lousy ass killer

 

These strange ideas 

That you present

I don't understand

How it gets there

 

But no matter the heat is on

You're just a singer without a song

And no matter the night is young

You're just a shooter without a gun

Shooter without a gun

Singer without song

And a singer without a song

Is a lousy ass singer

Say Goodbye 

 

 

My heart just skipped a beat

In the middle of the fight

Trying to get through to you

I didn't mean to steal

Wanted to take back what is mine

Didn't know what else to do

 

I simply wanted to get by

I didn't mean to turn the day into a fight  

But I do believe

That everything's gonna be fine

 

The writing on the wall

Is my reading for the night

For twenty years or more to come

I'm longing to be free

But i'm just looking at my life

Slowly grinding to a halt

 

I simply wanted to get by

I didn't mean to turn the day into a fight

O but I still believe

Don't you worry baby it's gonna be just fine 

 

I simply wanted to get by

I didn't mean to ruin the day and take a life         

But everything is going to be fine

 

I simply wanted to get by

I simply wanted to say goodbye

Phones

It's the time of the season

It's a world full of thugs

Clouding our minds and      

Speaking in tongues

 

On my phone

Me and my phone

 

It's just rhyme without reason

On Twitter accounts

Instagram feeds

That make the world go round

 

On my phone

Me and my phone

 

It's the time of the season

There is no one to blame

We are one happy family

In the virtual domain

 

On my phone

Me and my phone 

 

Life's being groovy

To the innocent and young

While the adults awake

With the worries bout their sons

And their daughters and granddaughters

Wasting their time

Looking for kicks      

Getting lost online

 

On my phone

Me and my phone

Crying Shame

 

 

Every little thing you do to me       

Everything you give is all that i need 

The colors that you paint 

And how you fade to grey

And just because you're beautiful 

I'll come out to play

 

I'm heading for the mountains, climb every tree

Dive to the ocean floor, conquer every sea

I get blinded by the light, desperate for the shade

Missing out on all of that would be a crying shame

 

When times are changing     

With colors slowly fading   

You better take your turn 

Before you take the fall

Nothing ever feels the same 

when everything's out of control

 

How about a little time, time on your own

Don't you take too much or you'll end up alone

Whenever you desire, I'll come out to play

Missing out on all of that would be a crying shame

Borrowed Time

 

 

Alcohol means the world to me

When there's nothing that seems to make things right Within the walls of the infirmary    

Desperate for a drink, just trying to survive   

 

And in my hour of need

Where i was looking for distraction

I simply wanted to resign

And leave it all behind

 

Our home just down the street    

Was built upon our dreams and wasted time

How come after all those years

I'm getting closer to the point

Where i would leave it all behind

 

And in my hour of need

Where i was looking for distraction

I simply wanted to get out

The doctors told me to hang on

To keep it all together

We are closer to the point

Where we will figure something out

 

Beg steal or borrow

Whatever it takes

Like there's no tomorrow 

Even if it's borrowed time

 

I don't know who will come for me

When things start going from bad to worse

I shoot the walls of the infirmary 

While waiting on a friend that will never stop by

                                                                                     

My legs and arms are heavy

And the walls they start to spin

Lying smack-dab in the middle of the floor

There's constant ringing in my ears 

I can't keep myself together 

I'm done with all this crap, I can't take it anymore   

 

Beg steal or borrow

Whatever it takes

Like there's no tomorrow

There's no tomorrow

Drowning In Laughter

 

 

Where are the young ones   

That we used to be                

Always up for a new challenge 

And we wandered the night 

And watched the sun come up again

Somehow anyhow       

 

We were the young ones

We made our own lives     

All about music 

And parties at night

Guitars were playing 

And our singing filled the room

Weekends were made for us

Intoxicated by the innocence of youth

We couldn't get enough

 

We were standing on top of the mountain    

Floating up above the world

Nobody worried 

And memories were made      

We were drowning in laughter    

We did it our way

We were drowning in laughter 

And we were ok

Drowning in laughter

Laughter remains

O we were the young ones

We did it our way
