THE ACADEMY IS… Sputter

Posted on

Welcome to musicforlittlelearners Lyrics THE ACADEMY IS… Sputter Lyrics, singer by THE ACADEMY IS…

Wake up, try on your new disguise,
Would they recognize you anyway?
Would they?
Dead leaves lie down beneath your feet
As you step into the street and
Notice the distance between the hearts and homes

But still you know it’s alright.
You’re not looking back this time.
You know it’s alright.
You’re stepping on the cracks and you feel fine.

Don’t waste your breath.
You wouldn’t want this anyway.
And if you did, I think I’d let you,
Talk this to death, or in circles like we’re aeroplanes.
But all along I knew that we would sputter out.
We would sputter.

Outside constructions workers pour
A brand new basement floor.
But then the ground starts shaking
fault lines to your own front door.
I looked at this and thought of you,
And all that is and isn’t true,
And with the strength left in me,
walked on while the walls came down.

It’s alright.
You’re not looking back this time.
You know it’s alright.
I’m stepping on the cracks and I feel fine.

Don’t waste your breath.
You wouldn’t want this anyway.
And if you did, I think I’d let you,
Talk this to death, or in circles like we’re aeroplanes.
But all along I knew that we would sputter out.
We would sputter.

We would sputter…
We would sputter…
We would sputter out…
We would sputter out.

Don’t waste your breath.
You wouldn’t want this anyway.
And if you did, I think I’d let you,
Talk this to death, or in circles like we’re aeroplanes.
But all along I knew that we would sputter out. (We would sputter)
But all along I knew that we would sputter out. (We would sputter)
But all along I knew that we would sputter out.
We would sputter
We would sputter down.

THE ACADEMY IS… Days Like Masquerades

Welcome to musicforlittlelearners Lyrics THE ACADEMY IS… Days Like Masquerades Lyrics, singer by THE ACADEMY IS…

I said,
ďHey you, this is me.
The idealist inside that holds your love on a string,
wound and tied like kites to all your hopes and dreams.
What a tangled mess that theyíve turned out to be.
Take a breath, and ask yourself what matters.Ē

Days like masquerades, silent, hiding in the shadows,
Oooh, stripped of their disguise leave you haunted as you scatter.
But youíre always on my mind.
Youíre always on my mind.

When you feel lost out at sea,
surrounded by on equal sides the same routine,
Becoming what you swore youíd never be.
Donít distress, thereís a big bright place if you stay close to me.
Take a breath, and Iíll show you what matters.

Days like masquerades, silent, hiding in the shadows,
Oooh, stripped of their disguise leave you haunted as you scatter.
But youíre always on my mind.
Youíre always on my mind.

Oh, oh, oh…

Youíre always on my mind.
Youíre always on my mind.

Days like masquerades, take a breath and feel what matters.
Days like masquerades, take a breath and feel what matters.
Days like masquerades, take a breath and feel what matters.
Days like masquerades, take a breath and feel it.
Breath and feel it.

Welcome to musicforlittlelearners Lyrics THE ACADEMY IS… I’m Yours Tonight Lyrics, singer by THE ACADEMY IS…

Forever alone until I found you,
and now youíre always there
voice on the air, scent on my clothes.
Oh, but when the sun exposes all my demons,
will you stay or run away?

Iíll help you find your way
every moment youíre awake.
You know Iíll stay,
even in your dreams
Iíll pull the stars down from the heavens
to fill your empty skies
Iím yours tonight.
Iím yours tonight.

Wherever you go, they say Iím bad news.
When every one agrees,
whispers start sounding like screams.
Oh, but I know what you want
to say before the words escape your teeth.
Will you trust in me?

Iíll help you find your way
every moment youíre awake.
You know Iíll stay,
even in your dreams
Iíll pull the stars down from the heavens
to fill your empty skies
Iím yours tonight.
Iím yours tonight.

My good intentions
can leave the hardest hearts,
the harshest scars youíve ever seen.
My bad impressions they follow me,
making enemies that I canít see.
Forever alone, until I found you.
I know that youíll stay.
You wonít run away.

Iíll help you find your way
every moment youíre awake.
You know Iíll stay,
even in your dreams
Iíll pull the stars down from the heavens
to fill your empty skies
Iím yours tonight.

Iíll help you find your way
every moment youíre awake.
You know Iíll stay,
even in your dreams
Iíll pull the stars down from the heavens
to fill your empty skies
Iím yours tonight.
Iím yours tonight.
Iím yours tonight.

THE ACADEMY IS… Tokyo Bay

Welcome to musicforlittlelearners Lyrics THE ACADEMY IS… Tokyo Bay Lyrics, singer by THE ACADEMY IS…

I’m not impressed, the slightest bit,
by anything that you said.
Rinse and repeat your opinion of me,
and all of my off-beat friends.
While we’ll be making plans,
you’ll be too cool to clash between these lines.

September nights, we’ve come so far
from broken homes and battle scars.
Tomorrow drops, we’ll still remain.
What if I saw you now?
I doubt you’ll ever change.

I’m not distressed, the slightest bit,
If you think that you’ve got me pegged.
You sit, unwrung, like a tired sponge,
soaking up all the piss.
You’ll never take a stance,
’cause you’re too cool to clash beneath these lights.

September nights, we’ve come so far
from broken homes and battle scars.
Tomorrow drops, we’ll still remain.
What if I saw you now?

September nights, we’ve come so far
from broken homes and battle scars.
Tomorrow drops, we’ll still remain.
What if I saw you now?
Doubt you’ll ever change.

I’m seeing clearly now…
With the backseat window down.
From the corner of my eye,
I see you in the rear view mirror.
You feel so good to leave behind,
without your face against the window.

September nights, we’ve come so far
from broken homes and battle scars.
Tomorrow drops, we’ll still remain.
What if I saw you now?

September nights, we’ve come so far
from broken homes and battle scars.
Tomorrow drops, we’ll still remain.
What if I saw you now?
Doubt you’ll ever change.

With the backseat window down.
From the corner of my eye,
I see you in the rear view mirror.
It feels so good to leave behind,
without your face against the window.
Doubt you’ll ever change.

THE ACADEMY IS… Sodium

Welcome to musicforlittlelearners Lyrics THE ACADEMY IS… Sodium Lyrics, singer by THE ACADEMY IS…

Don’t call, don’t write, don’t speak my name
Though we’ve tried this twice
I’m just another face
Even when you’re running out of luck
You think we’ll get it right this time
Get it right, all right, all right, all right

Run, in another five months you’ll be alone
And you’ll drive around this empty town
To the places, to the places we used to go
You gotta get used to going out
And you’ll drive around this empty town
To the places, to the places we used to go

By now, by now, I’m sure you’ve heard
So you called me yesterday
But I had nothin’ to say
Message said I’m running out of time
So, so much for the honesty
Because after all, you know you’ve won
Run, in another five months you’ll be alone
And you’ll drive around this empty town
To the places, to the places we used to go
You gotta get used to going out
And you’ll drive around this empty town
To the places, to the places we used to go

I’ll write you one more song
Spell it out for you to leave you
Where you’re standing now
You’re running out of lies
So, so much for the honesty
Because after all, you know you’ve won

Run, in another five months you’ll be alone
And you’ll drive around this empty town
To the places, to the places we used to go
You gotta get used to going out
And you’ll drive around this empty town
To the places, to the places we used to go
To the places, to the places we used to go
To the places, to the places we used to go

THE ACADEMY IS… Every Burden Has A Version

Posted on

Welcome to musicforlittlelearners Lyrics THE ACADEMY IS… Every Burden Has A Version Lyrics, singer by THE ACADEMY IS…

She’d rather repair her face with the lights turned off.
The door wide open in an empty house.
The frozen minutes are melting slow
as she watches from the window.
The street light’s flickering like a tongue that can’t stop licking.
Like the cat that caught the cream,
she’s never gonna be.
She’s never gonna be quite satisfied.

Just like a hundred dollar bill
folded up and tearing at the crease.
There’s not much left inside your chest,
but it’s worth much more than what you see.
Every burden has a version in somebody else.

She smokes her smokes outside to avoid the fight.
She’d rather be enjoying the silent stillness of the suburbs.
After midnight, what’s the point.
Don’t try to hide, don’t justify a thing.
She’s so naive to think she’d be capable.
Like the cat that got the cream,
she’s never gonna be quite satisfied.

Just like a hundred dollar bill
folded up and tearing at the crease.
There’s not much left inside your chest,
but it’s worth much more than what you see.
Just like a hundred dollar bill
folded up and tearing at the crease.
There’s not much left inside your chest,
but it’s worth much more than what you see.

And this will be the last time she hides her eyes behind her hair.
And this will be the last time, this will be the last time.
And this will be the last time she hides her eyes behind her hair.
And this will be the last time, this will be the last time.

Just like a hundred dollar bill
folded up and tearing at the crease.
There’s not much left inside your chest,
but it’s worth much more than what you see.
Just like a hundred dollar bill
folded up and tearing at the crease.
There’s not much left inside your chest,
but it’s worth much more than what you see.

And this will be the last time she hides her eyes behind her hair.
And this will be the last time, this will be the last time.
And this will be the last time she hides her eyes behind her hair.
And this will be the last time, this one last chance to say goodbye.

THE ACADEMY IS… One More Weekend

Posted on

Welcome to musicforlittlelearners Lyrics THE ACADEMY IS… One More Weekend Lyrics, singer by THE ACADEMY IS…

Somewhere hiding underneath,
kicking off covers while you sleep.
Soon you’re gonna leave, so leave us one
more weekend.
You’ve got all the friends you need,
bad tattoos and worse IDs. You feel alive,
do you feel alive?

You’ll go off, you’ll forget,
you’ll grow out of hanging from the edges,
breaking off the past.
You’ll know when to move on,
you’ll know when to take all the right chances,
never looking back.

Somewhere hiding underneath,
running around these empty streets.
Do you think you’re better off dead,
better off dead than alive in here?
You’ve got all the friends you need,
bad tattoos and worse IDs. You feel alive,
do you feel alive?

You’ll go off, you’ll forget,
you’ll grow out of hanging from the edges,
breaking off the past.
You’ll know when to move on,
you’ll know when to take all the right chances,
never looking back.

How could you think the time we spent
was all wasted
sleepwalking through every morning that
we took for granted?
Maybe the time we spent was not wasted…
Let it go, I’ll let you go.

You’ll go off, you’ll forget,
you’ll grow out of hanging from the edges,
breaking off the past.
You’ll know when to move on,
you’ll know when to take all the right chances,
never looking back.

We are half alone, our hearts are leaving home.
Now that we don’t belong to anyone at all.
[x2]

Somewhere hiding underneath,
kicking off covers while you sleep,
you feel alive.
