SOPHIA - 'THERE ARE NO GOODBYES' LYRICS

1. There are no goodbyes
I lost my head in a landslide
I should have seen it coming
But you took me surprise

Well fold me up gently
And tuck me away into your silence
Where I will sleep
Safe in the secrets that bind us
because...

There are no goodbyes
There are no goodbyes

And sweetheart
You know that I don't blame you
How can I when I know the pain you hide?

And I'm sorry
Can you forgive me?
I wish that I was stronger but I tried
And even though
I know I should really be letting go
Somehow
Yeah somehow
I just keep holding onů

Because there are no goodbyes
There are no goodbyes


2. A Last Dance (To Sad Eyes)
Let's light the candles
And drink more wine
And turn the music up to drown out our noise for a while
Then pull the curtains
And break out the knives
You said 'Why waste a perfect evening when can just cut straight to the fight?'

Come on
Come on
Baby can't we sing this song?
Or maybe we can just dance our sad dance to Sad Eyes?

Come on
Come on
Baby where did we go wrong?
Can't we just dance our last dance to Sad Eyes?

And you said you hate the ups and downs
Well I hate the stops and starts
Maybe what drew us together was what pulled us apart?
So tonight why don't we light more candles and drink more wine
And turn the music up to drown out the truth for a while?

Come on
Come on
Baby can't we sing this song?
Or maybe we can just dance our sad dance to Sad Eyes?

Come on
Come on
Baby where did we go wrong?
Can't we just dance our last dance to Sad Eyes?

Come on
Come on
Can't we just dance our last dance to Sad Eyes?

Come on
Come on
Baby where did we go wrong?


3. Storm Clouds
Let the storm clouds pass
And the tempest fade
Dry your eyes my dear and don't be afraid
Because the daylight is coming
And all our ghosts they have names
Dry your eyes my dear
And don't be afraid
No don't be afraid


4. Dreaming
We closed our eyes and I began dreaming
But you weren't used to the stops and starts and the silent screaming
You held me close and said you could sense the torment inside me
You even touched my cheek to see if I was still breathing
But I was only dreaming
I was only dreaming
I was only dreaming


5. Obvious
Hey
What am I supposed to say?
Babe
Can't you see that I'm hurting here?
And I know that I promised I would never be your shadow
But why you'd have to bring your light back in to my life?

And why do we fight it deny it defy it?
Oh isn't it obvious?
Why do we fight it deny it defy it?
Oh isn't it obvious?
Oh isn't it obvious?

And hey?
Is there something you'd like to say?
Babe
You disappear and then you reappear
And I know that I promised I would never be your shadow
But then you had to bring your light back in to my life...

And why do we fight it deny it defy it?
Oh isn't it obvious?
Why do we fight it deny it defy it?
Oh isn't it obvious?
Oh isn't it obvious?
That to me
That to me
We're still a perfect 3

Oh wasn't it obvious
That to me
That to me
We were still a perfect 3?


6. Something (Duet)
I'm jealous (You're jealous)
And possessive (And possessive)
Neurotic
Insecure
And obsessive (Insecure and obsessive)

I ain't much
What's half of nothing?
I never felt like I was something (But you're something)
And I know that I ain't easy (You ain't easy)
When you're only trying to please me (I'm only trying to please you)
And I know that I ain't easy (You ain't easy)
But I love you

Oh I love you

And that's gotta mean something
Yeah that's gotta mean something
When nothing means anything
When nothing means anything

Doesn't anything mean something?

Sometimes I feel so stupid (What's stupid?)
And ugly (Or ugly?)
And I wonder how you can love me (But how I love you)
Cuz I'm a fuck up and a nightmare (No you're a dreamer I can see the light there)
And I know that it ain't easy (It ain't easy)
When you're only trying to please me (I'm only trying to please you)
And I know that I ain't easy (You ain't easy)
But I love you

Oh I love you

And that's gotta mean something
Yeah that's gotta mean something
When nothing means anything
When nothing means anything

Yeah that's gotta mean something...


7. Signs
I remember the first time we laughed
The old couple argued confused by our map
And you smiled and said "Someday that's how I want to be"

And I don't know how I ever thought I had a chance with you
No I've never been good with signs
And I don't know how I ever thought I had a chance with you...

You said you should have left me a Christmas
And then again on Valentines
We never made it to St. Petersburg
But princess I hope you make it there sometime...

And I don't know how I ever thought I had a chance with you
No I've never been good with signs
And I don't know how I ever thought I had a chance with you
No I've never been good with signs...


8. Heartache

The Mondays come
And the Fridays go
I'm like a child waiting for the postman at the front door

And it's been weeks
But still no sign
I even tried holding my breathe to help me pass the time

And I thought I knew heartache
And I thought I knew heartbreak
But I've never known anything like this before

And the winter’s ice has melted
The air is warm and sweet
And the baby birds are singing as the world rustles from it's sleep

But I guess that I should know by now
That nothing ever lasts
And all we're ever left with is our I'm sorrys and our regrets

I thought I knew heartache
I thought I knew heartbreak
But I've never known anything like this before

No I've never known anything like this before


9. Leaving
I said that was a good day a grey day
You should see me when it all turns black
Sometimes I even scare myself with the shadows I cast
And as we lie side by side with the tears rolling down our cheeks
I ask "How can you love someone that just sees the hate in everything?"

I thought you were a fighter
But in the end I guess you lost your faith in me
But I don't blame you for leaving
No I don't blame you for leaving me
No I don't blame you for leaving...


10. Portugal
I tilt my head and turn my face to the sun
I breathe deep and let the warmth fill my lungs

I decided today I'm gonna be a better person
No it's never too late to change

And yeah I decided today I'm gonna be a better person
No it's never too late to change

No it's never too late to change...
