BARE - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Intro)
I want to live where the sky is big
Simple and free
That's where I want to be
Simple and free
That's where I gotta be

(Verse 1)
Take my clothes off
Be the one I am
In my own rhythm
Like the water

(Chorus A)
Simple and free
That's where I gotta be
Just living day to day to day to day

(Verse 2)
Like a cherry seed
Let me learn to bleed
Break it open
Like the sun

(Chorus B)
Just living day to day to day to day to day
Just living day to day to day to day, day

(Break)
Why do I keep fucking up?
Why do I keep fucking up?
Why do I keep fucking up?

(Chorus C)
Just living day to day to day to day to day
Just living day to day to day to day to day

(Denouement)

Am I correct?

Simbalimbel:
Yes

Oh, bye for now

Bye for now


MY FIDELITY - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Is it something ritual?
I'm caught in, can't break the spell?
Is it moving in my body?
Is it biological?
I gotta hand it to you
You've got one heart ten times divided
Did you cut yourself in pieces
To get them all inside?

(Chorus A)
You dream about her, can't you see?
She's only shining bright
Cause she is so out of reach
You dream about the seven seas
While I'm staying home each night
Making love to my fidelity

(Verse 2)
I'm rocking in my bed
I can't talk, can't think, can't sleep
And nothing's jumping fences
I only count what I cannot keep
I lick my wounds
I chase my instinct, like a cat
I don't know how I got so good
Or why my heart's a trap

(Chorus A)

(Break A)
Why I love you, why I love you
Why I love you I don't know
Why I love you, why I love you, why?
Taking sides with my enemy
Making love to my fidelity

(Chorus A)

(Verse 3)
I'm landlocked, stuck in here
I don't want to take my freedom
I can't change what makes me high
And I can't change what I believe in
I'm not pleasing no guru
I'm not out to look for Jesus
I'm not afraid to break the rules
It's just one love keeps me breathing

(Chorus B)
Dream about her, can't you see?
She's only shining bright
Cause she is so out of reach
You dream about the seven seas
While I'm staying home each night
Making love to my fidelity

(Break B)
Why I love you, why I love you
Why I love you I don't know
Why I love you, why I love you
Why I love you, why?
Taking sides with my enemy
Making love to my fidelity


SPIRIT IN YOU - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Under your skin there's something beckoning
There's something that makes me believe in you
Behind your eyes, that's where the sacred lies
You know I need to get through

(Bridge A)
Oh here I go again
Through the undergrowth again
Feel the earth move, the planets spin
But I can't get through

(Chorus A)
It's the spirit in you
It's the spirit in you
It's the spirit in you
That I want to find

(Verse 2)
I've seen your face, the one your mother made
Now let me see what makes you really move
I know you're scared, I know it's tender there
Just let me in close and let me get through

(Bridge A)

(Chorus B)
It's the spirit in you (spirit)
It's the spirit in you (spirit)
It's the spirit in you (spirit)
That I want to find

(Break)
And when you make me feel
When you make me bleed
My lucky stars fall down on me
You know I need to know you
I need to see
I need to take a hold of what underneath

So close your eyes, close your eyes
Unlock your mind, unlock your mind
Throw off the fear
And let us fly

(Bridge B)
Here I go again
Through the undergrowth again
Feel the earth move, the planets spin
But I can't get through

(Chorus B)
It's the spirit in you (spirit)
It's the spirit in you (spirit)
It's the spirit in you (spirit in you)
That I want to find

(Chorus B)
It's the spirit in you (spirit)
It's the spirit in you (spirit in you)
It's the spirit in you (spirit in you)
That I want to find


SHELL - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1 A)
Look at me, I'm smooth like a shell
Put your head down, hear the ocean
Hold my body, feel it roll
So much inside and it's all been broken

(Bridge A)
You know it's just one step out, it could all be over
You know this could rip us out at the seams

(Chorus A)
I'm falling, it's all in your hands
Don't let it wash away
I'm aching, don't take it all away
Breaking the shell again

(Verse 2)
Look at me, I'm out on the edge
Put your hand here, see I'm bleeding
I can't get it, get the light out
I can't seem to tear out the feeling

(Bridge A)

(Chorus A)

(Break)
(woo hoo hoo)
(look at us)
(what can - I feel I oughta - now)
(woo hoo hoo)
(filled with life, feel the kill)

I am a box, I am a fish, I am a trail, I keep you warm (woo hoo hoo)
And I remember stripping down to meet the water
Wading out to where the sky turns under
My insides smooth like a shell (like a shell)
Like a shell (like a shell)

(like a shell) (like a shell)
(like a shell) (like a shell)

(shell)
(put your hand here)
(shell)

(Bridge B)
You know this could rip us out at the seams

(Chorus A)

(Chorus B)
I'm falling, it's all in your hands
(wash away) Don't let it wash away
I'm aching, don't take it all away
(shell again) Breaking the shell again

(Verse 1 B/Denouement)
Look at me, I'm smooth like a shell
Put your head here, hear the ocean roar


GLOW STARS - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Kiss me, kiss me, under a glow-star sky
If they're stuck on the ceiling, I don't mind
It's a brittle world but it's soft inside
I'll make the Milky Way for you, only you
For you, only you

(Chorus A)
And I will always ride far into the night with you
And I will take my chances far into the night with you, only you
With you, only you

(Verse 2)
Love me, love me, under a glow-star sky
It's a galaxy when we get high
And sleep to the junkies' lullaby
As I close my eyes for you, only you
For you, only you

(Chorus B)
And I will always ride far into the night with you
And I will take my chances far into the night with you

(Break)
I touch your face, I'm flying over fields
I touch this moment, it's mine
I'm an angel, I'm a parasite
I'm a vessel, I shine

(Verse 3)
Kiss me, kiss me, under a glow-star sky
We'll be pushing up soil someday, sometime
So hold me now, hold me tight
I'll make the Milky Way for you, only you
For you, only you

(Chorus C)
And I will always ride far into the night with you
And I will (always) take my chances, far into the night with you

(Chorus D)
And I will always ride, (kiss me, kiss me) far into the night with you
And I will (always) take my chances (kiss me kiss me) far into the night with you
With you


EAR TO THE GROUND - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I've been wondering
Waiting for something to give
I won't be a heroine
I'm just looking for something to live by

And there are lesions in the soil
And there are pockets of pain where the shadows lie
And there are voices in the ocean
And there is something in the sky

(Chorus A)
A mother should say
A father should say
Oh you, look up
Look down
Keep your ear to the ground
Keep your ear to the ground

(Verse 2)
It's washing
It's washing over me
And it's spinning
It's spinning under me

And am I looking up at the angels
Or am I really looking up at the clouds floating by?
And when I say I'm listening
Why is it I only hear you when you cry?

(Chorus A)

(Break)
(ooh ah) I, (ooh ah) even I, (ooh ah) even I, (oo-oo-ooh)
(Ooh ah) Even I, (ooh ah) even I, (ooh ah) even I, (oo-oo-ooh)
Even (ah), even (ah), even (ah), (ooh)
(ee-ee) Even I, (ey-ey) even I, even I, ooh

(Chorus B)
A mother should say
A father should say
Oh you, (ee ee ee ee ee-ee) look up
(ee ee ee ee ee-ee)
Look down
(ee ee ee ee ee-ee)
Keep your ear to the ground
Keep your ear to the ground

(Denouement)
(ee ee ee ee ee-ee) (oo-ah ooh)
(ee ee ee ee ee-ee) (oo-ah ooh)
Keep your ear to the ground
(ee ee ee ee ee-ee) (oo-ah ooh) (ee-ee)
Keep your ear to the ground
(ee ee ee ee ee-ee) (oo-ah ooh) (ee-ee)
Keep your ear to the ground
(ee ee ee ee ee-ee) (oo-ah ooh) (ee-ee)
Keep your ear to the ground
(oo-ooh oo-ooh) (oo-ah ooh)
Keep your ear to the ground


SECOND SKIN - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
The bullet's deep, I am not dreaming
The blood I keep, while you are healing

(Chorus A)
Have you found your second skin, second wind?
Have you found your second skin, second wind?

Second skin (even as you lie, you die, I'm gonna love you)

(Verse 2)
You're riding high, you won't be falling
Don't look behind, I am crawling

(Chorus B)
Have you found your second skin (second skin), second wind?
Have you found your second skin (second skin), second wind?

(Break)
(ooh) Oo-Oh, you could have been born to swim
(ooh) Ooh, you could have been born to camouflage
(ooh)

(Chorus C)
Have you (have you found) found your second skin (second skin), second wind?
Have you (have you found) found your second skin (second skin), second wind?

(Verse 3)
Does it pull, a ring around your finger? (when in life we die, it's for the first time)
Does it hurt and will it linger on? (in life we lie, it's for the first time)

(Chorus C)

(Denouement)
Have you, have you, have you, have you?
(repeat x5)


MOTHERTONGUE - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I got my daddy's eyes
But you gave me your double vision
I got my daddy's stride
Now I'm walking blind with double vision

(Chorus A)
And I can almost see your face (now in me) now in me
And I can almost feel the weight (you carried) you carried

(Verse 2)
You had to break the skin
To put the blood between us
You did the dirty work
To put the blood between us

(Chorus A)

(Break)
Oo-ooh, rocking the seed in me
Oo-ooh, learning to speak the mothertongue

(Verse 3)
Sometimes between the lines
I crashed, I coulda killed you
I tried to go too fast
And I crashed, I coulda killed you

(Chorus B)
And I can almost see your face (now in me) in me
And I can almost feel the weight (you carried) you carried

(Break)

(Chorus A)

(Denouement)
Mothertongue
The mothertongue


ALL THE WAY - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
When birds fly, they navigate by stars
These nights the walls come down, these nights are ours

(Verse 2)
This love is life, I want to stay
I'll be beside you all the way

(Denouement)
All the way, all the way, all the way
All the way, all the way, all the way


FRONTIER - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Sometimes I'm an Indian
Caught only by the sky
I can't go further
I'm going inside

See, it's like a ride
It turns you out in the night
You're far from the road now
But it's getting brighter

(Chorus A)
If you don't believe it (believe it)
Then lose yourself and feel it
This is the bright frontier
Right now, right here
This is the bright frontier
Right now, right here

(Verse 2)
Taking hold of what we have
It's easy now
We're splitting it open
To eat the seeds

Looking in at what we've found
It's easy now
This big horizon
It's you and me, oh

(Chorus B)
If you don't believe it (believe it)
Then lose yourself and feel it
This is the bright frontier
Right now, right here (where the love runs free)
This is the bright frontier
Right now (the sky is the limit for you and me)

(Break)
When you get to the top of something
Do you get that feeling?
Do you get that high?
You get to the top of something
Do you get there?
You want to jump right off?
Oh, we're going to keep on stretching out
We're going to ride on, oo-oh

(Chorus C)
If you don't believe it
Then lose yourself and feel it
This is the bright frontier
Right now, right here (where the love runs free)
This is the bright frontier
Right now, right here (the sky is the limit for you and me)

(Denouement)
This is the bright frontier
Where the love runs free
Oo-ooh-oh, oo-ooh-oh, oo-ooh-oh, oh (the sky is a window for you and me)
Oo-ooh-oh, oo-ooh-oh, oo-ooh-oh, oh (where the love runs free)
(sky is a window for you and me)
Oo-ooh-oh, oo-ooh-oh, oo-ooh-oh, oh

This is the bright frontier, oh-oh


SHAKING THE DOLL - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Oh, I won't be your pretty baby
I won't eat from your hands again
And the man in the white says it's alright
He says, "Come on, girl, give up the fight
You'll go to sleep, there will be no pain"
Well I, I want to live with myself again
Ooh

(Verse 2)
Well, where we live, there is a lighthouse
Throwing a white beam into our house
Over my body when I was sleeping
Over the secrets I was keeping
I could tell myself there would be no pain
But I, I have to live with myself again
Ooh

(Alt. Verse 1)
I'm digging up, I'm digging up, I'm digging up, I'm digging up
I'm digging up, I'm digging up, I'm digging in the earth

(Alt. Verse 2)
(touching... we steal it)
I'm looking for signs and I'm shaking the dolls
(hurry up, hurry up)
And the fairy-tales lied

(Alt. Verse 3 A)
(touching... did we steal it?)
And somewhere, back there, I didn't understand
Man and woman and woman and man
And I'm shaking the dolls, I'm shaking the dolls

(Break 1)
Ooh, the dream isn't coming through
I can't feel for you

Ay-ay ah
Ay-ay ooh

(Alt. Verse 3 B)
Well somewhere, back there, I didn't understand (ay-ay)
Man and woman and woman and man (ah)
And I'm shaking the dolls, I'm shaking the dolls

(Break 2)
Ooh, I wanna live with myself again
Oh, I have to live with my body again
Ooh, you can't make me hollow again
Ooh, I have to live with myself again

Ooh, the dream isn't coming through
I can't feel for you

(Denouement)
La-la-la la-la la-la, la-la-la la-la la-la la la-la
La-la la-la la-la, la-la-la la-la la-la la la-la

Love, shooting up, through my veins
I gotta get a hit again


TALKING TO STRANGERS - (discography)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I'm talking to strangers
To see what I feel
Your face is changing now
And nothing seems real

(Chorus A)
These things I know
Are like a baby, how they grow in me
I pull them out
Just like a baby, for you to see them all, now

(Verse 2)
I'm talking to strangers
To see what I need
This love between us now
How it's twisting in me

(Break 1)
I wanna get it out
I wanna feel the breathing
I wanna really love
I wanna know the meaning
I wanna share all these things

(Chorus A)

(Break 2)
(wordless vocals throughout)

(love is power)

(take, just walk this road)
(take this road)

(Chorus B)
These things I know
Are like a baby, how they grow in me
I pull them out
Just like a baby, for you to see them all, oh

(Denouement)
(come on, feel you trying)
(beautiful disappointment)
