Face to Face Lyrics

I won’t shed a tear cos nothing ties me here
So it’s time to move on and get rid of my fears
The chains will fall away and with time on my hands
I swear and I swear again
I’m gonna feel so free at last

I’m setting off at dawn, got no time to spare
I only hope that you’ll be there
I’m setting off at dawn, got no time to spare
I only hope that you’ll be there

I’m gonna close my eyes and take a leap of faith
Now the dice is cast and nothing will stand in my way

The chains will fall away and with time on my hands
I swear and I swear again, I’m gonna feel so free at last.

(Morris, Escutia)

You know life ́s never easy
At the end of your rope
You can hardly keep your head high

And the people who once were at your beck and call
Have been calling the shots for a while
You laugh at their jokes and you swallow your pride
When you would rather look them in the eye

You toss and turn at night, and you can ́t help but wonder
If things will ever be the same
And you wander crowded streets like a little boy lost
Like a mongrel lost after the rain

Where can I go?
Where can I hide?
What can I do not to give up the fight?

The people who once were at your beck and call
Have been calling the shots for a while
You laugh at their jokes, bend to kiss their feet
When all you want to do is go your own way
You feel out of place, and you ask yourself
How long this is going to last It is real or a nightmare, or a trick of the light
Or only a figment of your feverish mind?

(Morris, Escutia)

If I could spend the night with you
Get lost between your sheets If
I only could spend one night with you alone
You know I would
Blowing secrets in the dark
So soft, so proud
And wait till I kiss the morning in your mouth

If only I could turn back the clock
And turn my life around
I’d go back to the time and place where we first met
In a distant past
I’d try my best to wipe the slate
And make things right
Make no more mistakes, no more mistakes this time

I need your skin like I need the air I breathe
I need your soothing voice as you whisper in my ear
Ohohohohoh…
And get lost in the rain, and get lost in the rain
Together for a while And get lost in your heart

If I could spend the night with you
See the morning in your smile
Feel your naked skin with my fingertips

And let time go by I’d be glad to wipe the slate
And keep you from all harm
Caress your cheeks and kiss your lips this time.

(Morris, Escutia)

Standing at a crossroads with a suitcase in my hand
The cold cold wind is blowing right where stand
I won’t ever waste my time, my time looking back
On the life, the life I left behind

The road stretches on ahead but
I stand my ground I don’t know where
I’m headed, don’t know where
I’m bound And every ray of hope, and every drop of rain
Make me feel so glad I’m alive

I look ahead and push my past aside
Keep my eyes on the sunny side of life
Look around and I see no greener grass
None’s greener than mine

Bright sunny days, starry nights
And you by my side
That’s all I need, all I need to survive
Bright sunny days, starry nights
And you by my side

That’s all I need, all I need to survive
Standing at a crossroads with a suitcase in my hand
Wondering if I ever will make up my mind
I may either sink or swim, I might turn left or right
But I know the choice is mine.

(Morris, Escutia)

There’s noise outside
I can’t even hear my thoughts
And miss the sound of your voice It’s cold outside

On this frosty window pane
My finger scribbles your name

Feel my warmth
At the other end of the line
Fill the empty space ‘tween us

In a strange place
I hear the traffic roar outside
Lying on a cold and empty bed

Time drags by
As in a long slow-motion scene
I fade to black on the screen
Desde este rincón del mundo

Feel my heart
From this corner of the world
Reaching out for you, reaching out.

(Morris, Escutia)

These are the very same clouds
That cast shadows
On the streets of her faraway town
Now it’s here Over my head
Now it’s here Miles away

This is the very same rain
That caused the flood
That washed away her fear, her fear and pain
Now it’s here Miles away
Now it’s here Over my head

And I walk on my own in her rain
And I walk, getting so aked in her rain
And I walk on my own in her rain
And I walk, getting soaked in the second hand rain

This is the very same wind
Where she blew me a kiss
And I keep it pressed to my chest.

(Morris, Escutia)

Dim the lights and closet the door
And welcome to my private world
It’s all lost in a drunken haze
Right where it belongs
A thousand tiny drawers in my head
Full of tales of woe

However cold it might be outside
My world is cosy and warm
I learnt to put the past behind
Let bygones be bygones
Good news in every letter that
I read Full of empty words

Isn’t it a shame that your world is such a bore
Isn’t it a shame it’s such a bore
Isn’t it a drag you have all become killjoys
Isn’t it a shame you’re such a bore

Dim the lights and close the door
And welcome to my private world
It’s all lost in a drunken haze
Right where it belongs
A thousand tiny drawers in my head
Full of tales of woe

(Morris, Escutia)

Years ago
I spent all my time trying to have fun
Almost always I got it
Then I knew
There were so many things that I could change
Quickly I forgot it
Squeezing life
Opened all the doors to many dangers
And none declined my offer
I believed in me
And in my ability to evade hits
But I didn’t know how to climb stairs

Now I know
That things are stupid and absurd
Run away, I do it too
Hey you all, do not help me
I prefer to spoil my life in my own way

I grew up
And another kind of problems came along
Money and disappointment
Music’s fine
At last I found a way to soothe my soul
And my mother loves it.

(Morris)

I’ll set off tonight and head for the coast
I’ll follow my gut with only clothes I have on
Choo…

With time on my hands and I’ll spend it with you
I’ll make you an offer, girl you cannot refuse
Choo…

I’ll erase my memories till my mind’s a blank
I’ll go back to square one I’m starting from scratch
Choo…

I’ll lie on the beach all day
And feel the burning sand
I’ll find a place to hide away
The trouble and the strife
I’ll lie on the beach all day
And let the bitter wind
Blow all around me
And bite my naked skin

And in this eternal bliss, you’ll be at my side
One thing I can tell you, this is paradise
Choo.

(Morris, Escutia)

You know you’re a King
And your Yes men all agree
Money won’t buy their respect
And it won’t buy their hearts
It will only buy their fear

They know how Judas felt
They can feel it in their flesh
But still they worship your name
And say what you want to hear
And they curse behind your back

When you’re dead, when you’re dead
The whole world will sigh and you will bring a smile
Upon each and every face

Your legion of Men Fridays
They are here to satisfy
To satisfy every wish, satisfy every whim
While turning a blind eye

But me, I want out
I feel there’s nothing for me here
I got no reason to stay and the chains simply fell
The moment I took off your mask.

(Morris, Escutia)

With all your hard-earned money,
your bonds and your shares
packed in a leather briefcase

Snapshots and mementos,
and your prized possessions
are all scattered out in the rain

A glance at the past,
lost distant memories
and somethings you’ll never forget

One day you notice
there’s no compensation
for all you missed along the way

We’ll all be homeless,
the only thing I know’s
We’ll all be destitute in the end
We’ll all be homeless, one thing I know for sure

You can’t take anything to your grave
We’ll all be homeless, ohoh…

Your pride and your status,
your life and your values
have all been built on shifting sand

It’s no use pretending
that this never happened,
they all fell like a house of cards

Stacked in your head’s
the time that you wasted
and dreams that you failed to fulfil

But no amount of money
will bring back those moments
And boy, now you know how it feels

Now you live for today,
and your life’s turned around
Maybe it’s just a blessing in disguise
And you’ve learnt the hard way
That a house is not always a home

At the end of the day
there’s nothing you can do or say
everybody’s homeless

At the end of the day
there’s nothing you can do or say
Cos everybody’s homeless.

(Morris, Servera, Escutia)

I can hear your name in every whisper
I can see your face in every window pane
Hear your laughter in the rain
I want to know, I want to know
You’ll give me shelter from myself
And that’s more than you’ll ever get from me

I came in here
Trying to escape my fate
I came in here
Knowing full well what I would find
I knew I would find you
nd that’s enough, more than enough
Cos you will give me shelter from myself

And that’s the best thing
someone’s done for me

The sun comes up and I wonder what you’re doing
Rumours spread and they might be true
I swear I hate to bring bad news
But I never broke my word, I never sold my soul
I’m not like you… uhhhh.

(Morris, Escutia)

I’m the giant with feet of clay
I’m the one who fell from grace
The one who lost his way to see the light

And I’ve slept in the same clothes
For as long as I can recall
Shabby, torn and tattered as they are

Nobody knows what is like
To go from riches to rags
No one really knows the life I had
Now I’m stuck inside these walls
And my ceiling is your floor
And your floor is where I always lie

You may think this is where I belong
But I can swear that this is not my home

No, no, no… This won’t be my home.

(Morris, Escutia)
