IF I SAW YOU IN A MOVIE - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Chorus A)
Sweet, won't let you go
Sweet, won't let you go

(Verse 1)
Got an email from you today
With a poem that you wrote
I was touched because you felt it
Cause I nearly let you go

(Chorus A)

(Verse 2)
This long distance has me out of my mind
But it gives me time to think
And it gives me room to see you
In another light

(Chorus B)
Sweet, won't let you go
Sweet, won't let you go (go)
Sweet, won't let you go (won't let you go)
Sweet (won't let you go)

(Break)
And I know if I saw you in a movie
I know, doing all the things you do for me
I know, if I saw you in a movie
Doing all the things you do
I would fall in love with you

(Chorus C)
Sweet, won't let you go (won't let you go)
Sweet, won't let you go

(Break)

(Chorus D)
Sweet, won't let you go (won't let you go)
Sweet, won't let you go (go) (won't let you go)
Sweet, won't let you go (won't let you go)
Sweet (won't let you) (won't let you go)

(Denouement)
If I saw you in a movie (won't let you go)
If I saw you in a movie (won't let you go)
If I saw you in a movie (won't let you go)
If I saw you in a movie (let you go)


TALK TO ME - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Talk to me, mmm, talk to me
Like you used to darling
I know it's cold, I know it's late
But let's go out walking

(Bridge 1)
Cause we haven't found each other in a long time
And we have been treading water, living side by side

(Chorus A)
You take my breath away, yeah, you still do
Even though we've been down
So come on, talk to me, ye- yeah, come on
Even though we've been down so long
So long long, long long long

(Verse 2)
Come to me, mmm, come to me
Like you used to darling
Every day, every way
We've been losing something

(Bridge 2)
Cause we haven't held each other in a long time
And I need to feel your body close to mine, mmm

(Chorus B)
You take my breath away, yeah, you still do
Even though we've been down
So come on, talk to me, yeah yea-eah
Even though we've been down so long
La- long long, long long long

(Break)
Cause it's still inside you and it's still inside me
Still in our blood, in our memory
I'm still longing for you... Are you longing for me?
La- long long, long long long long

(Chorus C)
You take my breath away, yeah, you still do
Even though we've been down
You take my breath away, yeah, you still do
Even though we've been so down

(Denouement)
You give me the feeling and I la la la la love to feel
Long long, long long long long
You give me it all, before we'll ever take a round
Long long, long long, long

So long long
Talk to me, talk to me, yeah
So long long
Talk to me, talk to me
So long long, long long long long long long, mmm-mm


VIRUS OF THE MIND - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Intro)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(repeat x3)

(Verse 1)
Well, I was watching this talk show the other day
And on it there was this guy and he was saying
"When you let other people tell you what's right
when you leave your instinct and your own truth behind
That's a virus of the mind
That's a virus of the mind"
Well I guess it's kinda like loosing your sight
For a second you feel that they might be right
And it feeds the doubts that you have inside
And almost starts to feel like a crime
To follow your own rhythm and rhyme

(Chorus A)
I'm pretty happy, living in my
My own sweet time, living in my
Yeah, I'm pretty happy, and I don't need your
Virus of the mind

(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
Your virus of the mind
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)

(Verse 2)
Well I went to this party thing last night
A lot of people I hadn't seen in a long, long time
And they wanted to know about my life
But making me feel like it wasn't quite right
Like "Where's your kids?" and "Where's your car?"
I said "I don't have either but I have a guitar"
And I ended up feeling like I was a freak
So I found some wine and something to eat
And I talked to the dog to pass the time
I told myself "I'm doing just fine
It's just a virus of the mind
It's just a virus of the mind"

(Chorus A)

(Break)
It's in the deep of your soul, it's on the tip of your tongue
It's the feeling you get when you feel young
It's in the sound of a beat, it's in the base of your spine
It's in your gut reaction, yeah, every time
They tell you what you should have, they tell you who you should be
It's in the TV and ads and in the magazines
I'm kicking it off like a bug in the breeze
Cause is anyone out there inside me?
I say "Is anyone out there inside me?"
I say "Is anyone?"
Oo hoo hoo

(Chorus B)
I'm pretty happy, living in my
My own sweet time, living in my
Yeah, I'm pretty happy, and I don't need your
Virus of the mind

(Chorus C)
I'm pretty happy, living in my
My own sweet time, living in my
Yeah, I'm pretty happy, and I don't need your
Virus of the mind

(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
Your virus of the mind
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(no no, no no)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)

(Denouement)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(mind)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(mind mind) (no no, no no, I don't need it)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)

(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(mind mind) (no no, no no, don't you feed it)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(mind mind) (I want a mind of my own)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)

(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(of the mind, of the mind)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)
(it's in your mind, it's in your mind)
(Do do do do do, do do do do)

A better life to bring us 'round

WASTE THE DAY - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Intro)
Do do do do do, do do do do
Do hoo hoo hoo hoo, oo hoo hoo hoo

(Verse 1)
The streets are all busy
And we're still in bed
We should be up working
We're lying here instead
I look outside, the weather's fine
For playing music and drinking wine

(Chorus A)
I could waste a day with you
I could slip away into another dimension
What a perfect way
To spend the day
With you

(Verse 2)
Let's walk to the café
And sit in the sun
And read all the papers
And watch everyone
Cause life is short and life is sweet
And sometimes you just got to set yourself free

(Chorus B)
I could waste a day with you
I could slip away into another dimension
What a perfect way
To spend the day
With you oo hoo hoo hoo, oo hoo hoo hoo

Oo hoo hoo hoo hoo, oo hoo hoo hoo
Oo hoo hoo hoo hoo, hoo hoo hoo hoo, hoo hoo

I could waste a day with you
I could slip away into another dimension

You oo hoo hoo hoo, oo hoo hoo hoo

HEAVEN SENT - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Got the lights down low, the street below
The world inside is spinning
All my memories, my doubts about
The ways that I've been living
You come on like the sun
And blow it all away

(Chorus A)
I guess heaven sent you cause I'm heaven high
And I'm heading into what I can't describe
You're all I ever wanted but I'm terrified
You're in my head, in my veins, in my world
And you're here to stay

(Verse 2)
Every day I wake, I hesitate
I feel you in my sky
All my melodies, my dreams, it seems
You're always on my mind
You come on like the tide, you turn me
And I can't turn away

(Chorus A)

(Instrumental Break)

(Chorus B/Denouement)
I guess heaven sent you cause I'm heaven high
And I'm heading into what I can't describe
You're all I ever wanted but I'm terrified
In my head
Heaven sent you cause I'm heaven high
In my veins
Heading into what I can't describe
You're all I ever wanted but I'm terrified
In my head, (heaven sent you) in my veins, in my world, yeah
In my head, (heaven sent you) in my veins, in my world, yeah
In my head, (heaven sent you) in my veins, in my world
And you're here to stay


IT'S ONLY LOVE - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Intro)
Love

(Verse 1)
I used to think that I knew what we needed
I just assumed we would always be fine
Now I don't think that we lost the feeling
But we let everything build up inside

(Chorus)
It's only love
But love should make us strong
It's only love
But love has been hurting so long

(Verse 2)
What a challenge, honesty
What a struggle to learn to speak
Who'd've thought that pretending was easier

(Chorus)

(Break)
And it's all part of me
Tearing my heart
Only love
And it's all 'ternity
Hoping to learn
Only love

(Transition)
Love
Oo

(Verse 3)
There's a part of you I'm trying to reach
Still a part I don't know
Tell me, is devotion a gift or a thief?
Do you wish I'd let go?

(Chorus)

(Break)

(Denouement)
Only love, oh
Only love
Love, oh

Only love
Only love
Only love
Only

Only love
Only love
Only love
Only lo-ove
Only love


I'M NO ANGEL - (discography)
by Heather Nova and Bernard Butler

(Verse 1)
Are you ready
For me to be stronger?
I'm keeping my distance
My voice to a whisper

Are you ready
For me to surrender?
Cause I find in my return
There's no need to hide these words

(Chorus A)
Cause maybe (maybe)
I'm no angel (I'm no angel)
But I feel like I could fly
Maybe (maybe)
There's no rainbow (there's no rainbow)
But my love for you still shines

(Verse 2)
And I want to
I wanna be endless
I wanna be helpless
I wanna be true

Like a sunbeam (like a sunbeam)
The shadow's behind me (the shadow's behind me)
Sliding out of view
Let me bring it home to you

(Chorus A)

(Break)
Cause here I am
Here I am
I've been running long enough to know
Yeah, here I am
Here I stand
All this running's got me longing in my soul, oh
Longing in my soul

(Chorus A)

(Chorus B)
Yeah, maybe (maybe)
I'm no angel (I'm no angel) angel
(I feel) I feel like I could fly
Yeah, maybe (maybe)
There's no rainbow (there's no rainbow)
But my love, (for you still) my love for you still shines
My love still shines


HELP ME BE GOOD TO YOU - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Here in the light of late afternoon
Sun on the water, I'm thinking of you
Have we come too far now to be drifting apart?
All this distance we're losing, I know it's my fault

(Bridge A)
But I think that I love you
I know that I do
I just need you to help me

(Chorus A)
Help me be good to you
Help me
Help me be good to you
Help me
Help me be good to you

(Verse 2)
I don't know why I can't settle down
Something from my childhood I still haven't found
And I don't wanna hurt you, darling, with all my longings and my doubts
Just the way I need to feel free, I can see how it brings you down

(Bridge B)
Well I think that I love you
I know that I do
I just need you to help me

(Chorus B)
Help me be good to you
Help me
help me be good to you
Help me please, help me darling
Help me be good to you

WHEN SOMEBODY TURNS YOU ON - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Can you hear me?
Am I loud enough?
Could you see it coming
Like an avalanche?

When somebody turns you on
It's like a light in the dark goes on
You've waited for rain, you've waited so long
When somebody turns you on

Were you waiting (were you waiting)
When you took my hand?
Were you aching with me?
Did you understand? (understand)
I only felt the heat, mm-hmm

(Chorus A)

Your eyes go straight to my soul
And I know this is good
Goes deep like I know it should, yeah
Just got to let love grow, oo

(Chorus B)
(When somebody turns you on)
It's like a light in the dark goes on
You've waited for rain, you've waited so long
When somebody turns you on

When somebody turns you on (when somebody turns you on)
When somebody turns you on (when somebody turns you on)

GLOOMY SUNDAY - (discography)
music by Rezsň Seress
original Hungarian lyrics by Laszlň Jŕvor
translated English lyrics by Sam M. Lewis


(Verse 1)
Sunday is gloomy, my hours are slumberless
Dearest, the shadows I live with are numberless
Little white flowers will never awaken you
Not where the black coach of sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thought of ever returning you
Would they be angry if I thought of joining you?
Gloomy Sunday

(Verse 2)
Gloomy is Sunday, in shadows I spend it all
My heart and I have decided to end it all
Soon there'll be candles and prayers that are sad, I know
Let them not weep, let them know that I'm glad to go
Death is no dream, for in death I'm caressing you
With the last breath of my soul, I'll be blessing you
Gloomy Sunday

(Break)
Dreaming
I was only dreaming
I wake and I find
You asleep in the deep
Of my heart
Here

(Verse 3)
Darling, I hope that my dream never haunted you
My heart was telling you how much I wanted you
Gloomy Sunday

(Denouement)
Gloomy Sunday
Gloomy Sunday ay ay-ay ay-ay
Sunday
Sunday
Sunday, Sunday
Sunday


TESTED - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Simplicity is what we need
And I know it in my heart
So many choices make us think we need
What we haven't got

(Chorus A)
I been blessed by you
I been tested by an angel
I been blessed by you
And I know and I believe
There's a way out to the sea of happiness

(Verse 2)
And if I knew what Buddha taught
Would my wings unfold?
And if I had all that I want
Could I let it go?

(Chorus B)
I been blessed by you
I been tested by an angel
I been blessed by you
And I know and I believe
There's a way out to the sea

(Break)
Well, sometimes I feel like I'm learning to crawl
Like I'm still learning how to love
And sometimes I feel like I'm losing it all
But I know there must be some way we can rise above

(Chorus A)
I been blessed by you
I been tested by an angel
I been blessed by you
And I know and I believe
There's a way out to the sea of happiness

(Denouement)

And I know and I believe
And I know and I believe
