Cardigans – Communication

Posted in Cardigans with tags on October 2, 2009 by kJouL

For 27 years I’ve been trying

to believe and confide in

different people I found

Some of them got closer than others

some wouldn’t even bother

and then you came around

I didn’t really know what to call you

you didn’t know me at all

but I was happy to explain

I never really knew how to move you

so I tried to intrude through

the little holes in your veines

And I saw you

But that’s not an invitation

That’s all I get

if this is communication

I disconnect

I’ve seen you, I know you

but I don’t know

how to connect

So I disconnect

You always seemed to know where to find me

And I’m still here behind you

In the corner of your eye

I never really learned how to love you

But I know that I love you

through the hole in the sky

where I see you

And that’s not an invitation

That’s all I get

if this is communication

I disconnect

I’ve seen you, I know you

but I don’t know

how to connect

So I disconnect

Well, this is an invitation

it’s not a threat

if you want communication

that’s what you get

I’m talking, and talking

but I don’t know how to connect

and I hold the record for being patient

With your kind of hesitation

I need you, you want me, but I don’t know

how to connect

So I disconnect

I disconnect…

I will never know

cause you will never show

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

I will never know

cause you will never show

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

Carnival came by my town today

bright lights from giantwheels

fall on the alleyways

and I’m here

by my door

waiting for you

I will never know

cause you will never show

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

I will never know

cause you will never show

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

I hear sounds of lovers

barrel organs, mothers

I would like to take you

down there

just to make you mine

in a merry-go-round

I will never know

cause you will never show

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

I will never know

cause you will never show

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

hmmmmm come on and love me now

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

come on and love me now

Cardigans – Love Fool

Posted in Cardigans with tags on October 2, 2009 by kJouL

Dear, I fear we’re facing a problem

You love me no longer, I know

And maybe there is nothing that I can do to make you do

Mama tells me I shouldn’t bother

That I ought to stick to another man

A man that surely deserves me, but I think you do

So I cry, and I pray, and I beg

Love me, love me, say that you love me

Fool me, fool me, go on and fool me

Love me, love me, pretend that you love me

Leave me, leave me, just say that you need me

So I cry and I pray for you to

Love me, love me, say that you love me

Leave me, leave me, just say that you need me

I can’t care about anything but you

Lately I have desperately pondered

Spent my nights awake and I wonder

What I could have done in another way to make you stay

Reason will not lead to solution

I will end up lost in confusion

I don’t care if you really care as long as you don’t go

So I cry, I pray, and I beg

Love me, love me, say that you love me

Fool me, fool me, go on and fool me

Love me, love me, pretend that you love me

Leave me, leave me, just say that you need me

So I cry, and I beg for you to

Love me, love me, say that you love me

Leave me, leave me, just say that you need me

I can’t care about anything but you (anything but you)

Love me, love me, say that you love me

Fool me, fool me, go on and fool me

Love me, love me, I know that you need me

I can’t care about anything but you
