Lyrics & Credits

Coffee

“Coffee”

By Sabolitai

Vocals:  安部 深穂

Compose/Arrange/Keyboards: Nick Clegg

Lyrics:  Terri MacMillan

Recording/Mix:  Nick Clegg 

 

v1
There is a man
Standing across my street
He dries his hands
On cotton towels
And as he stands there
Looks in her mirror
She won’t remember
She ever knew him

ch
It takes too long now
Making the coffee
Just a reminder
He can still see her

v2
he sinks in stories
heartbreak is just a word
he knows he’s standing
seems like he’s losing ground
not only lonely
he doesn’t care enough
who would believe him
he cant believe himself

ch
It takes too long now
Making the coffee
Just a reminder
He can still see her

v3
maybe its time
maybe the stars lined up
I cant be sure, but
I think he’s had enough
I will walk over
I will be braver still
stand in his doorway
finally I think he will

ch
It wont be long now
Making the coffee
Just a reminder
He doesn’t need her

v

the thrill 

of rising

again

you’re fighting

your way

through the dark grey overhead

Look up and lift up

Come on and stay

And if you give up

Then no one, no one

Gives a damn

ch

Light dawns slowly 

You can’t see the sky

But you know it’s there so

Look up

Lift up…

v

Your heart

will fill up

it’s time

to carry

yourself

moving forward

once again

Middle 8 (instrumental)

ch

Light dawns slowly 

You can’t see the sky

But you know it’s there so

Look up

Lift up…

Light dawns slowly 

You can’t see the sky

But you know it’s there so

Look up

Lift up… 

Distance

“Distance”

By Sabolitai

Vocals:  安部 深穂

Compose/Arrange/Keyboards: Nick Clegg

Lyrics:  Terri MacMillan

Trumpet solo: Aiko

Recording/Mix:  Nick Clegg 

 

v
It’s easy to see
you turn away and
somehow you hold on to
illusions that pull you through
v
I think you’re not so strong
and you think you can’t go wrong
we watch as the daylight fades
just how can you walk away

v
I watch as you fly
off in the distance
your wings only go so far
And you can’t be where you are

Flight

“Flight”

By Sabolitai

Vocals:  安部 深穂

Compose/Arrange/Keyboards: Nick Clegg

Lyrics:  Terri MacMillan

Percussion: 西室モヒ泰治 Yasuharu Mohi Nishimuro

Recording/Mix:  Nick Clegg 

 

v1
in the air when you see me
in your heart as you flow away
closer further smoke will cover
maybe you can love another

but
you may lose the game
there are too many prizes
yet they all look the same
a single one suffices

ch
closing slowly
stretch yourself and when it
fades to black you never
see it coming go

v2
the map asynchronous
the landscape rushing past
the chemical dependence
the glorious descent

this is the super play
this is the main attraction
you are a step away
from going going over

ch
closing slowly
stretch yourself and when it
fades to black you never
see it coming

v3
get pen and parchment babe
write down the bitter tidings
look for a fool to save
drowning is mesmerizing

this is the super play
this is the main attraction
you are a step away
from going over

ch
closing slowly
stretch yourself and when it
fades to black you never
see it coming

Ocean

“Ocean”

By Sabolitai

Vocals:  安部 深穂

Compose/Arrange/Keyboards: Nick Clegg

Lyrics:  Terri MacMillan

Recording/Mix:  Nick Clegg 

 

v
when love rescues me
she moves so slowly
and carefully she begs me just to wait
to hold her breath in my hands

when love enters me
the cords of pain descend
they only leave scars of permanence again
and then again

ch
You will find her walking on a wave 
Some to lose and maybe some to save

v
If she follows me
beyond my understanding
and all of my dreams begin to
breathe and leave
the center
of my hands

and she moves away
the speed of time is ending
the air turnsaround me as//
I look for her// and look
and look again

ch
You will find her walking on a wave (la, la la)
Some to lose and maybe some to save

Chorus repeat

Thoughts

“Thoughts”

By Sabolitai

Vocals:  安部 深穂

Compose/Arrange/Keyboards: Nick Clegg

Lyrics:  Terri MacMillan

Recording/Mix:  Nick Clegg 

 

Alone
Alone
how many
lost random
thoughts that never
free you

Regrets
Harsh words
No more of
This crazy
Argument
It’s over

I sleep
So deep
the dreams
that kept me
haunted till the
sun rise

Polite
so slightly
keep walking
dont touch them
they will never
touch you
