LONDON RAIN - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I'm coming, I'm coming home to you
I'm alive, I'm a mess
I can't wait to get home to you
To get warm, warm and undressed

(Verse 2)
There've been changes beyond my dreams
Everybody wants me to sing
There've been changes beyond my grasp
Things I'm sinking in

(Chorus A)
So keep me (keep me)
In your bed all day, all day
Nothing heals me like you do
Nothing heals me like you do

(Verse 3)
And when somebody knows you well
Well, there's no comfort like that
And when somebody needs you
Well there's no drug like that

(Chorus B)
So keep me (keep me)
In your bed all day, all day
Nothing heals me like you do
Keep me (keep me)
In your bed all day, all day
Nothing heals me like you do

(Break)
Mm-hmm mmm, mm-hmm
Mm-hmm mmm, mm-hmm

(Verse 4)
And when I'm home, curled in your arms
And I'm safe again
I'll close my eyes and sleep, sleep
To the sound of London rain

(Chorus C)
So keep me (keep me)
In your bed all day, all day
Nothing heals me like you do
Keep me (keep me)
In your bed all day, all day
Nothing heals me like you do
Nothing heals me like you do

(Denouement)
Nothing falls like London Rain
Nothing heals me like you do
(repeat x2)


BLOOD OF ME - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1 A)
Oh, big ring around the moon
Oh, it's gonna rain hard soon

(Verse 2)
Hey, I know you're gonna leave
It's like a storm inside

(Chorus A)
You're the blood of me
You're the truth that hurts (hurts)
You're the memory
You're the drug that works

(Verse 3)
Oh, why do people change?
When hearts, hear- hearts, still beat the same?

(Chorus B)
You're the blood of me (you're the blood of me)
You're the truth that hurts (hurts)
You're the memory, yeah (you're the memory)
You're the drug that works

(Break)
I don't believe you when you tell me
I don't believe you when you hold me
I don't believe you, oh you're my medicine
I don't believe you when you fuck me

(guitar solo)

(Chorus C)
You're the blood of me (you're the blood of me)
You're the truth that hurts (hurts)
You're the memory, yeah (you're the memory)
You're the drug that works (works)

(Chorus D)
You're the blood of me, yeah (you're the blood of me)
You're the truth that hurts (hurts) hurts
You're the memory, yeah (you're the memory)
You're the drug that works

(Verse 1 B)
Oh, big ring around the moon
Gonna rain hard soon


HEART AND SHOULDER - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Wanna cry for you
Would it do any good?
If I rained for you
It would just be water

And the night's with you
And the storm's in your hand
And you're down, and you're down
And I can't lift you

(Bridge 1)
I'm powerless to change your world
I'm powerless to stop the hurt

(Chorus)
But I'll, I'll give you my heart, give you my shoulder
I give you my heart, give you my shoulder
Over and over

(Verse 2)
Wanna run for you
Would it do any good?
If I flew for you
You would still be standing

And it's hard watching
Cause I'm part of you
And it's hard not to
Not to know what I can do

(Bridge 1)

(Bridge 2)
I'm trying hard to be your tower of strength
I'm trying hard to bring you back to joy

(Chorus B)
I give you my heart, give you my shoulder
I give you my heart, give you my shoulder

(Break)
When the night just cuts you through
And the dream is lost to you
When you're worried and confused

(Chorus C)
I will give you my heart, give you my shoulder
I give you my heart, give you my shoulder
Over and over

(Denouement)
Time and again, give you my shoulder (I will)
I will I give you my heart, give you my shoulder (I will)
I will, time and again, over and over
I give you my heart, give you my shoulder


WHAT A FEELING - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Now's the time when this will turn to fruit
All the poppies gonna push up through

(Bridge 1)
And I can see the ground below
The places that I know disappearing
And I can see the winter fade
I don't feel so afraid, it's clearing

(Chorus A)
Ooh, what a feeling (oo-ooh oo-ooh)
Ooh, what a feeling (oo-ooh oo-ooh)
Oo-oo-ooh oo-ooh, what a feeling (oo-ooh oo-ooh)

(Verse 2)
Life is only halfway in our hands
Years have passed while I was making plans

(Bridge 2)
And I could never find the words
I always felt absurd and always outside
But now I know I shouldn't care
There's a song already there, waiting inside

(Chorus A)

(Instrumental Break)

(Bridge 3)
And I can feel the clock unwind
The parts of me I tied are running
And all the birds are in my head
The laughter that was dead is coming

(Chorus B)
Ooh, what a feeling (oo-ooh oo-ooh)
Ooh, what a feeling (oo-ooh oo-ooh)
Oo-oo-ooh oo-ooh, what a feeling
The laughter that was dead is coming
Oo-oo-ooh oo-ooh, what a feeling
The laughter that was dead is coming


VALLEY OF SOUND - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Move me, don't try
Let the music reach me tonight

Push me over into something new
I've been riding all day on a bus just to listen to you

(Chorus A)
I love, I love, I love, I love the look
In your trespassed eyes
I love, I love, I love, I love the way
You could make me cry

(Verse 2)
Sink me into stirred-up sea, yeah
Something I can drown in, only you can do this to me

(Chorus A)

(Break)
Love
In love

(Verse 3)
Fill me up and drop me down, yeah
Now I'm alive in the valley of sound

In the valley of sound, in the valley of sound, yeah
In the valley of sound

(Chorus B)
I love, I love, I love, I love the look
In your trespassed eyes, yeah
I love, I love, I love, I love the way
You could make me cry

I'M THE GIRL - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I got a memory a thousand years old
And I know secrets I've never been told
And I got jewels I haven't found
And they'll return me to the ground

(Chorus A)
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me

(Verse 2)
And I'm a Siren, I wreck you on my shores
And I'm Godiva, I'll call you back for more
And I'm Medusa and I'm your favorite doll
And I'm a Georgia O'Keefe hanging on your wall

(Chorus B)
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me

I'm Joan of Arc
I'm the girl next door
I'm the mother and the daughter of the mother and the daughter before

(Break)
And I remember being born just sound and lights, sound and light and light
And I remember the first time, skin on skin, yeah, in the arms of the night

Well how many times have we looked up into the starry skies?
And how many times have we felt the passion rise?

Every ruby-lipped girl baby, old lady, squaw junkie, girl after girl after girl
Every muse, whore, good witch, princess, back-arching year after year after year

(Chorus C)
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me

I'm Joan of Arc
I'm the girl next door
I'm the mother and the daughter of the mother and the daughter
The mother and the daughter of the mother and the daughter
The mother and the daughter of the mother and the daughter before

(Denouement)
Be alive, reach your hand out
Now at first love when she said, yeah, she loved you
Mmm, I'm a girl, I'm a girl, I'm a girl, I'm a girl, I'm a girl

Go ahead and put your hand out
Baby, please don't scare me
Yeah, take me... (unintelligible)
Oh darling, oh darling, so darling, so darling
Darling, darling, darling in your arms
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon

(unintelligible)


WINTER BLUE - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Kiss your lashes, kiss you low
I'm driven to you like the driven snow
There's a place for us to lie
For every lover, there's a piece of sky

(Chorus A)
To every life, a light that shines
To every heart, a beat that's true
Baby, you're my yellow summer
Baby, you're my winterblue

(Verse 2)
You know that this was meant to be
Long ago, a hundred years from now
Tossing on an open sea
Love so good it's easy to go down

(Chorus B)
To every life, a light that shines
To every heart, a beat that's true
Baby, you're my yellow summer
Baby, you're my winterblue
Baby, you're my yellow summer
Baby, you're my winterblue

I love you like a jungle fever
I never, never, never, could never leave you
Through every vein and every fiber
I never, never, never, could never leave you

To every life, a light that shines
To every heart, a beat that's true
Baby, you're my yellow summer
Baby, you're my winterblue

Baby, you're my winterblue

I'M ALIVE - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Your hands were covered in paint
The pillow smothered my cry
You were half charmer, half snake
I lived in dreamtime

(Chorus)
But I'm alive
I survived you
And the bitter taste, the years I wasted, all the hate is gone
Cause I'm alive

(Verse 2)
Some nights I'd sleep in the car
Just to escape you
You drove devotion too far
No one could save you

(Chorus)

(Break)
I still have visions of you, oh
I still have nights to get through, oh
And when the trust isn't true
I have these visions of you
I have these visions of you
Bringing me down

(Chorus)

(Denouement)
(I'm alive)

I'm alive
Ride on and fade away (alive)
I'm alive
There's nothing more to say (alive)
(repeat)

I'm alive
Ride on and fade away (alive)
And the bitter taste, the years I wasted, all the hate is gone


WIDESCREEN - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Lately I been slipping down
Thinking I'm the only one
Drifting in and out of blue

But destiny's a state of mind
And today I'm doing fine
Rolling through the afternoon with you

(Chorus A)
And it's a widescreen world around me
And I'm lying on the backseat of my mind
And it's a widescreen, you beside me
We're just riding on the backseat, feeling fine

(Verse 2)
I will be your misfit queen
I'll take you where the grass is green
Past the littered sidewalk to the sun

I hear the traffic move outside
Yeah but if I close my eyes
I can make it sound like waves rolling in

(Chorus A)

(Break)
And if we lie still, can you feel the room?
Feel the city, can you feel it move?
Tell your body, your body from mine?
Can you la, la, la, la, la?

And if we lie still, can you feel the room?
Feel the city, can you feel it move?
Can you tell your body, your body from mine?

I'm on the backseat of my mind
(repeat x2)

(Chorus B)
And it's a widescreen world around me
And I'm lying on the backseat of my mind
And it's a widescreen, got you beside me
We're just riding on the backseat, feeling fine

(Chorus C)
And it's a widescreen all around me
And I'm lying on the backseat of my mind
And it's a widescreen, you beside me
We're just riding on the backseat, feeling fine

(Denouement)
I'm on the backseat of my mind
(repeat x2)


PAPER CUP - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Wishful thinking I might be yours
Drifting on every step
I'm always drawn to the dark horse
Sweet, sweet, oh nothing's said

(Bridge)
And every dream (every dream) is just a dream after all

(Chorus)
And everything stands so still when you dance
Everything spins so fast
And the night's in a paper cup
When you want it to last

(Verse 2)
Wishful thinking you might be mine
Every shiver sends
One breath under the bridge of sighs
Bending where the river bends

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

(Saw Solo)

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

(Chorus)


AVALANCHE - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I lie in a field, in the trailerpark of my dreams
Saving up for someday, but what does someday mean?
And I'm young, but I let it slip on by
I'm co-dependent and I'm lost inside

(Chorus A)
And you, you look like freedom
You look like the avalanche I need
The avalanche I need

(Verse 2)
And there's a road, leads away from here
And every day I stand in place and I watch it disappear
And there's a bird, circles in my mind
Security's a whore in me that never lets me fly

(Chorus B)
And you, you look like freedom
And you, you look like change
You look like the avalanche I need
The avalanche I need

(Break)
With your sunburned soul
And your hunger for the road
I'm snowblind and I'm crying after
Yeah, like nothing matters

When you go down, take me
When you go down, yeah, make me
Go down
I got a hunger you could feed

(Chorus C)
You're the avalanche I need
The avalanche I need

(Verse 3)
And I know it's a fine line divides
The place I'm looking for and what's inside
And I know it's a long, long way
Through the outskirts of everyday

(Chorus B)

(Denouement)
Avalanche
Coming over me, avalanche
It's coming over me, mmm, avalanche

(do do do do do - do do do do do)
Avalanche
(do do do do do - do do do do do)
Coming over me, avalanche
(do do do do do - do do do do do)
Ooh, avalanche

(do do do do do - do do do do do)
Ooh, avalanche
(do do do do do - do do do do do)
Avalanche
(repeat)

(do do do do do)

RUBY RED - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Intro)
I got a ruby red desire
Like a virus, like my last hope

(Verse 1)
I got a ruby red desire
I got to hear the red bird sing
I got to rip this cord and rinse this lazy blood
Clear a path and walk away

(Bridge)
I've been waiting for the sky to fall
I've been worried I could lose it all
I've been waiting for the safety net
Tell myself that I'm not ready yet

(Verse 2)
And every memory's a dream
And each uncertainty reminds me why
I saw a kid outside playing by a moongate
Making paper things that fly

(Bridge)

(Chorus)
I wanna live (come shed your skin)
I wanna live (come dive in)
I wanna live, 'a live, 'a live, 'a live, 'a live (come shed your skin)
I wanna live, live, live (come dive in)

(Instrumental Break)

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

(Denouement)
I wanna live
Gonna get what your gonna give, gonna give
(repeat x 3)

Come dive in


NOT ONLY HUMAN - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Morning is almost here, let it wait
I just wanna lie here awhile tempting fate
I don't think I could breathe now with you gone
But it's not weakness, it's just something I've begun

(Chorus)
Maybe there's a light that's always on (maybe)
Maybe we're not only human (maybe)
Maybe there's a light that's always on (maybe)
And we're not only human

(Verse 2)
When you're sleeping, your ceramic, you're surrounded by little stars
Every shimmer is a searchlight, every planet is ours
Change the street, change the decade, still the longing's left inside
Why am I too small to carry you? Why does twilight make me cry?

(Chorus)

(Break A)
When all is said and done
When all the weight is gone
When all is said and done
When all the weight is gone
We're not only human

(Verse 3)
Life is something set to music, I can hear it when I'm sad
There's a chord in every muscle, every kiss you ever had
There's a power when you're near me, in our heads or in our bones
I know nothing, but I'm guessing when we die we're not alone

(Chorus)

(Break B)
When all is said and done (yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
When all the weight is gone
When all is said and done (yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah)
When all the weight is gone
We're not only human

(Denouement)
Not only human
Not only human
Not only human
Not only human (yeah)
(Human)

Not only human
Not only human
Not only human
Not only human
(No)

Human
Human

(when all the weight is gone)
(when all the weight is gone)

Not only (only) only (only)
Human

(human, human)
