Paolo Nutini - Autumn

Autumn leaves under frozen souls
Hungry hands turning soft and cold
My hero crying as we stood out their in the cold
Like these autumn leaves I have nothing to hold

Handsome smiles wearing handsome shoes
Too young to say, though I swear he knew
And I hear him singing while he sits there in his chair
While these autumn leaves float around everywhere

And I look at you, and I see me
Making noise so restlessly
But now it's quiet and I can hear you sing
'My little fish don't cry, my little fish don't cry'

Autum leaves have faded now
That smile I've lost, well I've found somehow
Because you still live on in my father's eyes
All these autmn leaves are yours tonite

Ich ließ dich gehn

In jeder Stadt sollte ein Manhmal stehn
In Stein gehaun wär ein Idiot drauf zu sehn
Der ständig auf die Tonne haut
Und dann am Ende in die Röhre schaut
In jeder Stadt sollte ein Mahnmal stehn
Darauf ein seltsamer Typ, dessen Haltung verrät
Dass er nicht von ungefähr kommt
Aber auf jeden Fall zu spät
Der leichtfertig das Glück verspielt
Dass er schon hundertfach in Händen hielt
Und dann benennt diesen Typen,
Dann benennt diesen Typen nach mir
Denn ich ließ dich gehn
Ich Idiot ließ dich gehn

I Dare You

God only knows how I needed a friend
Who can see through the boldness and pride
Someone strong enough I can put my faith in
Someone willing to let me inside
So be my woman

I dare you to need me
Like nobody else
I dare you to feel me
Like you've never felt
I dare you to want to want
To wanna be good to me

Baby you've got your reasons
Dangling from kite strings
But you can open your hands, let them fly
I know you won't always say and do the right things
But some things are worth a try
So if you can, please be my woman

I dare you to know me
Like I've never know
I dare you to show me
That I can be shown
Dare you to want to want
To wanna be good to me

Tell me I'm the one who deserves you
And every time you know that you want to

I dare you to hold me
Like you never will again
Kiss me and leave
The world standing still
Dare you to want to want
