The Script

 

Dublin Dr Pepper anyone? ...well will you settle for Dublin, Ireland?

From the great land that brought us The Cranberries, The Chieftains, Thin Lizzy, The Corrs, Enya, Van Morrison, Sinéad O'Connor and U2 (to name a very, very few) comes The Script.

With such a great pedigree, one might expect Ireland to deliver nothing but great music, and one would be exactly right when it comes to The Script.

Thoughtful lyrics and a knack for the technical details gives no hint at their boy-band past, however the three piece mix nicely with the likes of Maroon 5, Coldplay, One Republic and John Legend.

Danny O'Donoghue and Mark Sheehan took their Irish good sense and headed to LA to engineer projects with the Neptunes, Teddy Riley and Rodney Jerkins after the collapse of their previous effort, Mytown. The skills they honed are not lost on their self-titled debut on Sony BMG. Ten solid tracks are included with one live track giving you a hint of the great things to expect from The Script in concert. The obvious hits, "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" and "We Cry," are flanked on all sides by intimate, soulfully crafted pop masterpieces. Together with drummer, Glen Power, Sheehan and O'Donoghue have set themselves a high bar and given us all high hopes for their next effort.

Released November 4, 2008, The Script’s self-titled debut is available now on iTunes at the great $7.99 rate. Well worth it.

"We Cry Lyrics" Lyrics

Together we cry
Together we cry

Jenny was a poor girl, living in a rich world
Named her baby hope when she was just 14
She was hoping for a better word for this little girl
But the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree
When she gets that call, Hopes too far gone
Her baby's on the way, with nothing left inside
Together We Cry

What about the john play, could have gone the whole way
Lighting up the stage tryna get a deal
Now he's lighting up the wrong way, something for the pain
Man you wanna see this kid he was so fuckin' unreal
When he gets that call, he's too far-gone
Can't get it together to sing one song
And they won't hear tonight, the words of a lullaby

Together We Cry [X4]

Mary's ambition, she wants to be a politician
She's been dreaming about it since she was a girl
She thought, that she'd be the one who could change the world
Always tryna pave the way for women in a man's world
But life happened, house, kids, 2 cars, husband hit's the jar,
Checks that don't go very far now
Now she ain't making changes, she keeps her mind on her wages
The only rattling cages are her own

Together We Cry [X4]

The comes a time that every bird has to fly
At some point every rose has to die
It's hard to let your children go, leave home, where they go, who knows?
Gettin' drunk, gettin' stoned all alone
Teach a man to fish, feed a man for life
Show your kids the truth, and hope they never lie
Instead of reading in a letter that they've gone to something better
Bet your sorry now, I wont be coming home tonight

I'm sick of looking for those heroes in the sky
To teach us how to fly
Together we cry, we cry, we cry

Together We Cry

 

"Before The Worst" Lyrics

It's been a while since the two of us talked
About a week since the day you walked
Knowing things would never be the same
With your empty heart and mine full of pain
So explain to me, how it came to this
Take it back to the night we kissed
It was Dublin city on a Friday night
You were vodkas and coke, I was Guinness all night

We were sitting with our backs against the world
Saying things that we thought but never heard
Who would have thought it would end up like this?
Where everything we talked about is gone
And the only chance we have of moving on

Is try to take it back
Before it all went wrong

Before the worst, before we mend
Before our hearts decide
It's time to love again
Before too late, before too long
Lets try to take it back
Before it all went wrong

There was a time, that we'd stay up all night
Best friends talking till the daylight
Took the joys alongside the pain
With not much to loose, but so much to gain
Are hearing me? Cause I don't wanna miss,
Set you a drift on memory bliss
It was Grafton Street on a rainy night
I was down on one knee and you where mine for life

We we're thinking we would never be apart
With your name tattooed across my heart
Who would have thought it would end up like this?
Where everything we talked about is gone
And the only chance we have of moving on

Is try to take it back
Before it all went wrong

Before the worst, before we mend
Before our hearts decide
It's time to love again
Before too late, before too long
Lets try to take it back
Before it all went wrong

If the clouds don't clear
Then well rise above it, well rise above it
Heavens gate is so near
Come walk with me through
Just like we use to, just like we use to

Lets take it back
Before it all went wrong

Before the worst, before we mend
Before our hearts decide
It's time to love again
Before too late, before too long
Lets try to take it back
Before it all went wrong

 

"Talk You Down" Lyrics

I can feel the colour running
As it's running from my face
Try to speak but nothings coming
Nothing I could say to make you stay
Grabbed your suitcase called a taxi
It's 3am now where you gonna go?
Gonna stay with friends in London
And that's all I get to know

Just a cigarette gone
No you couldn't' be that far
So I'm driving in my car where I hope you are
Maybe I can talk you down
Maybe I can talk you down

We're standing on a tiny ledge
Before this goes over the edge
Gonna use my heart and not my head
and try to open up your eyes
This is relationship suicide

Cos if you go, I go...

Taking shortcuts through the alleys
While your racing through my mind
Cops can chase but they wont catch me
Not before I get to speak my mind
If there's still time

Just a cigarette gone
No you couldn't be that far
So I'm driving in my car where I hope you are
Maybe I can talk you down
Maybe I can talk you down

We're standing on a tiny ledge
Before this goes over the edge
Gonna use my heart and not my head
and try to open up your eyes
This is Relationship suicide

Cos if you go, I go...
Cos if you go, I go...
Cos if you go, I go...
Cos if you go, I go...

We're standing on a tiny ledge
Before this goes over the edge
Gonna use my heart and not my head

Just a cigarette gone
No you couldn't be that far
So I'm driving in my car where I hope you are
Maybe I can talk you down
Maybe I can turn around

We're standing on a tiny ledge
Before this goes over the edge
Gonna use my heart and not my head
and try to open up your eyes
This is Relationship suicide

 

"The Man Who Can't Be Moved" Lyrics

Going Back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I'm not gonna move
Got some words on cardboard, got your picture in my hand
Saying, "If you see this girl can you tell her where I am?"

Some try to hand me money, they don't understand
I'm not broke I'm just a broken hearted man
I know it makes no sense but what else can I do
How can I move on when I'm still in love with you

'cause if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinkin maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet
And you'll see me waiting for you on our corner of the street
So I'm not moving, I'm not moving

Policeman says, "Son you can't stay here"
I said, "There's someone I'm waiting for if it's a day, a month, a year"
Gotta stand my ground even if it rains or snows
If she changes her mind this is the first place she will go

'cause If one day you wake up and find that you're missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet
And you'll see me waiting for you on our corner of the street
So I'm not moving, I'm not moving,
I'm not moving, I'm not moving

People talk about the guy that's waiting on a girl
There are no holes in his shoes but a big hole in his world

Maybe I'll get famous as the man who can't be moved
Maybe you wont mean to but you'll see me on the news
And you'll come running to the corner
'cause you'll know it's just for you
I'm the man who can't be moved

[Chorus 2x]

Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I'm not gonna move

 

"Breakeven" Lyrics

I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
Just prayed to a god that I don't believe in
Cos I got tI'me while she got freedom
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't break even

Her best days will be some of my worst
She finally met a man thats gonna put her 1st
While I'm wide awake she's no trouble sleeping
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven

What am I suppose to do when the best part of me was always you
What am I suppose to say when I'm all choked up and your ok
I'm falling to pieces
I'm falling to pieces

They say bad things happen for a reason
But not wise words gonna stop the bleeding
Cos she's moved on while I'm still grieving
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven

What am I suppose to do when the best part of me was always you
What am I suppose to say when I'm all choked up and your ok
I'm falling to pieces
I'm falling to pieces
(One still in love while the other ones leaving
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)

You got his heart and my heart and none of the pain
You took your suitcase, I took the blame.
Now I'm tryna make sense of what little remains
Cos you left me with no love, no love to my name.

I'm still alive but I'm barely breathing
Just prayed to a god that I don't believe in
Cos I got tI'me while she got freedom
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't break even

What am I gonna do when the best part of me was always you
What am I suppose to say when I'm all choked up and your ok
I'm falling to pieces
I'm falling to pieces
(One still in love while the other ones leaving
Cos when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven)

 

"Rusty Halo" Lyrics

It's been a long time coming
Ye it's been a long time coming
But you know you had it coming
You know you had it coming

Everyones running from something but we don't know when it's coming
So we keep running and running

Now I'm looking up the bible tryna find a Loophole
Ye Im living for revival, dying for a new soul
Now there's no light to guide me on my way home
Now there's no time to shine my rusty halo

It's been a long time coming
Ye it's been a long time coming
It's been a long time coming
Been so long but i gotta Shine my Rusty halo

Now I'm running for the light in the tunnel but it's just the train
Ye im looking for the right type of pleasure but all i find is pain
Now theres no light to guide me on my way home
Now there's no time to shine my rusty halo

It's been a long time coming
Ye it's been a long time coming
It's been a long time coming
Been so long but i gotta Shine my Rusty halo

Everyones running from somthing but we don't know when it's coming
So we keep running and running

 

"The End Where I Begin" Lyrics

Sometimes tears say all there is to say
Sometime your first scars wont ever fade, away
Tried to break my heart
Well it's broke
Tried to hang me high
Well I'm choked
Wanted rain on me
Well I'm soaked
Soaked to the skin

It's the end where I begin
It's the end where I begin

Sometimes we don't learn from our mistakes
Sometimes we've no choice but to walk away, away
Tried to break my heart
Well it's broke
Tried to hang me high
Well I'm choked
Wanted rain on me
Well I'm soaked
Soaked to the skin

It's the end where I begin
It's the end where I begin

Now I'm alive
and my ghosts are gone
I've shed all the pain
I've been holding on
The cure for a heart
Is to move along, is to move along
So move along
[X3]
What don't kill a heart
Only makes it strong

Sometimes tears say all there is to say
Sometime your first scars dont ever fade, away
Tried to break my heart
Well it's broke
Tried to hang me high
Well I'm choked
Wanted rain on me
Well I'm soaked
Soaked to the skin

It's the end
End where I begin
It's the end
End where I begin

Sometimes we don't learn from our mistakes
Sometimes we've no choice but to walk away, away

 

"Fall For Anything" Lyrics

Girl that brings you down, down, down

Don't give yourself away
Don't live your life that way
Of course he's gonna say, anything you want
Then leave quicker than he came
Now you've got yourself to blame
Don't put yourself back in the fire again

It's the same damn things your so quick to believe
You do it over and over again
And it's the same mistakes that I'm watching you weave
You do it over and over again
So before they bring you down

You gotta stand for something or you'll fall for anything
You gotta stand for something or you'll fall for anything

Girl that brings you down, down, down

Please don't be so na¯ve, don't wait till your heart bleeds
Love wasn't built for speed, listen to me girl
He keeps fuckin' with your head, tryna get you into bed
And in the morning you'll just hate yourself
It's the same damn things your so quick to believe
You do it over and over again
And it's the same mistakes that I'm watching you make
You do it over and over again and over again
So before they bring you down

You gotta stand for something or you'll fall for anything
You gotta stand for something or you'll fall for anything

Girl that brings you down, down, down

And you give until there's nothing to give
Until there's nothing to give until there's nothing to give...
Before they break you down

You gotta stand for something or you'll fall for anything
You gotta stand for something or you'll fall for anything
Before they bring you down
Cos Girl they'll bring you down, down, down

 

"If You See Kay" Lyrics

If you see my friend
Doesn't matter where or when
Tell me if you see Kay

She said I Won the battle but I lost the war
And now my head is sore
And If I try to sail back in
She's gon push me from the shore
Now I wont ever get the time of day
No way no way no.
Not for what I said but for what I didn't say
what I didn't say so

If you see Kay
Will you tell her that I love her
And if you see Kay
Let her know I want her back
If she listens, say that I'm missing
Everything about her
Make sure you say
Im sweet FA without her
If you see Kay

If you see my friend
Doesn't matter where or when
Tell me if you see Kay

She got me saying sorry through the door
She don't care anymore
She says it's too late know
Should have thought of this before
But I aint gonna take this as defeat
No way no way no
Cos I'm gonna shout this out to every one I
Every one I meet

If you see Kay
Will you tell her that I love her
And if you see Kay
Let her know I want her back
If she listens, say that I'm missing
Everything about her
Make sure you say
Im sweet FA without her
If you see Kay

Now I'm sitting here in disbelief
At how it truly broke my heart to have to watch her leave
But she was thorn between what she wants and what she needs
They say you love someone enough you gotta set them free
See she was born to leave this town behind
Knew the truth but still she looked me in the eyes and lied
Saying its time to cut the ties
Time to say goodbye, So she left
But she never never left my mind.. never never left my mind..

If you see Kay
Will you tell her that I love her
And if you see Kay
Let her know I want her back
If she listens, say that I'm missing
Everything about her
Make sure you say
I'm sweet FA without her.
And make sure you say I lost my way without her
If you see Kay

If you see my friend
Doesn't matter where or when
Tell me if you see Kay

 

"I'm Yours" Lyrics

You touch these tired eyes of mine
And map my face out line by line
And somehow growing old feels fine
I listen close for I'm not smart
You wrap you thoughts in works of art
And they're hanging on the walls of my heart

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
And though I may not look like much
I'm yours
And though my edges may be rough
And never feel I'm quite enough
It may not seem like very much
But I'm yours

You heeled these scars over time
Embraced my soul
You loved my mind
You're the only angel in my life
The day news came my best friend died
My knees went week and you saw me cry
Say I'm still the soldier in your eyes

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
And though I may not look like much
I'm yours
And though my edges may be rough
And never feel I'm quite enough
It may not seem like very much
But I'm yours

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
I know I don't fit in that much
But I'm yours
