Invincible lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I thought I had the right day, but I was in the wrong place.
I tried to open a door, but got it slammed in my face.
I'm at the back of the line, feels like eternity.

Well, they tell me I'm gettin' close, but I know I'm still far.
You can dress me up, but you can't cover my scars.
I've become a professional at hide and seek.

I'm a danger to myself.

I can take a wrong turn, you're right behind me.
Crash and burn, I know you'll find me.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

I can call your name and you'll come running.
It's pouring rain, you'll make it sunny.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

Want to be part of the cure, but I'm part of the disease.
I can chase butterflies, but I get stung by the bees.
Sometimes I think too much, forget my clarity.

I bought every self-help book that I could fit on the shelf.
Too many Downward Dogs, they can be bad for your health.
I don't know who I am, so much for therapy.

I'm a danger to myself.

I can take a wrong turn, you're right behind me.
Crash and burn, I know you'll find me.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

I can call your name and you'll come running.
It's pouring rain, you'll make it sunny.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

I'm not the same old girl, no.
I want a brand new world.

I can take a wrong turn, you're right behind me.
Crash and burn, I know you'll find me.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

I can call your name and you'll come running.
It's pouring rain, you'll make it sunny.
As long as you're here, I'm invincible.

I thought I had the right day, but I was in the wrong place.
I tried to open a door, but got it slammed in my face.
I'm at the back of the line, feels like eternity.

Half Of Me lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

That was the sweetest song that I ever heard.
Sometimes I feel we're just tryin' to steal from the way that we once were.
I'm not the kind of girl to throw the first stone.
But this isn't fun, the damage is done. Don't know which way to turn.

When half of me is ready to leave and half of me is you.
You're the reason I'm alive. Oh honey, you.
And there's no way I can deny all you inspire in me.
I'm so inspired.

It's not a perfect world, but it's the one we live in.
We get so spoiled and think we need more.
Grass is greener where someone else is.
Don't really think that I'm goin' out on a limb
if I say that you're the greatest chord that I ever hit.

Half of me is ready to leave and half of me is you.
You're the reason I'm alive. Oh honey, you.
And there's no way I can deny all you inspire in me.
I'm so inspired.

I don't know what I'm doin' here. I don't know what I'm doin' here.
But, it's these times, oh I've gotta trust there's someone bigger than us.
I don't know what I'm doin' here. Oh, I don't know what I'm doin' here.
So I'll, I'll just trust.

Oh honey, you. You're the reason I'm alive.
Oh honey, you and there's no way I can deny all you inspire in me.

Oh honey, you and you're the reason I'm alive.
Oh honey, you and there's no way I can deny all you inspire in me.

I'm so inspired.
I'm so inspired.
So inspired.

Ordinary People lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I close my eyes, but I can't sleep again.
There's static in my head.
And the world outside is finally closin' in.
I guess it is what it is.

The sun still rises, those clouds are comin' this way.
They always come this way.
The stars keep fallin' and disappear.

We punch that clock, day begins.
Work gets done, we start over again.
We're ordinary people.

We're not the same, but we are one
In the end, it makes no difference where we're from.
We're ordinary people.

I paid the rent, all my money spent.
But I know where I am.
And I'm satisfied 'cause I know I did my best.
I always do my best.

The sun still rises, the clouds are comin' this way.
They always come this way.
The stars keep fallin' and disappear.

We punch that clock, day begins.
Work gets done, we start over again.
We're ordinary people.

We're not the same, but we are one.
In the end, it makes no difference where we're from.
We're ordinary people.

Once I was afraid, my sorrows out on display.
I'm not ashamed.

We punch that clock, day begins.
Work gets done, we start over again.
We're ordinary people.

We're not the same, but we are one.
In the end, it makes no difference where we're from.
We're ordinary people.

In the end, it makes no difference where we're from.
In the end, it makes no difference where we're from.
We're ordinary people.

5000 Days lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I thought of you for 5000 days
That's a long time
That's a big wave
I look in your eyes
In search of the truth
There's some kind of heaven
Maybe some proof

My link to thee unknown
My connection
My hope
My hope
This isn't temporary

Did we have a clue
When we started this
How far we'd get
From just a kiss
I have to trust
So I don't lose my mind
The world we have built
We'll be leaving behind

My link to thee unknown
My connection
My hope
My hope
This isn't temporary

So many vibrations
Weaving through my soul
Can't be my imagination

Did we have a clue
When we started this
How far we'd get
From just a kiss
My hope
My hope
My hope
My hope
My hope
My hope
This isn't temporary

Today lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

The sun hits your face, wide open space.
Forest is bare, cut everywhere.
There's no one around, just the faces and clouds
and a heart that's breaking.

You're not exactly where you're supposed to be,
but tomorrow don't allow for guarantee.

So, today, today, today is the greatest day.
Today is the greatest day.
Today, today, today is the greatest day.
Today is the greatest day.

Chasing the crowd, all twisted around.
It's not what you lost, it's what you've found.
Eyes of a child, it's getting harder to smile.
You're an angel on these streets.

You tell yourself you're not quite what you seem.
But, one more chance and you will be redeemed.

Oh, today, today, today is the greatest day.
Today is the greatest day.
Today, today, today is the greatest day.
Today is the greatest day.

I don't know what you mean.
And I don't know what you need.

You tell yourself you're not quite what you seem.
But, one more chance and you will be redeemed.

Today, today, today is the greatest day.
Today is the greatest day.
Today, today, today is the greatest day.
Today is the greatest day.

Today, today, today is the greatest day.
Today is the greatest day.
Today, today, today is the greatest day.
Today is the greatest day.

Today, today, today is the greatest day.
Today is the greatest day.

The Way lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

The sky was grey for so long by the time the sun came out,
I didn't notice. I was too far gone.
And now this building's not so high and forever ain't so long.
I don't remember, no. What went wrong?

This is the way I'm feelin', can't take away what's real to me, no.
This is the way I'm turnin', so let me go and don't do anything at all.

Sorry for how I drag you around, up when you're down
and down when you're up. I should just cheer you on.
Somewhere, there's your middle ground, you know you're there,
oh, when you're found, you're lost and then you're free.

This is the way I'm feelin', can't take away what's real to me, no.
This is the way I'm turnin', so let me go and don't do anything at all.

Somewhere, there's your middle ground, you know you're there,
oh, when you're found, you're lost.

This is the way I'm feelin', can't take away what's real to me, no.
This is the way I'm turnin', so let me go, don't do anything, no.

This is the way I'm feelin', can't take away what's real to me, no.
This is the way I'm turnin', so let me go, don't do anything at all.

Plain Jane lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I feel so plain jane
I have no costume
I have no hairdo
Limited attitude
But I can blend in
With the best of 'em
Bring me a crowd and
Watch me get lost within

All the skies
All the nights
Every star
Every moon's so bright

No more lies
Or disguise
This is me
And it's genuine

I feel so plain jane
I have no costume
I have no hairdo
A limited attitude

But I can blend in
With the best of 'em
Bring me a crowd and
Watch me get lost within

All the skies
All the nights
Every star
Every moon is mine

No more lies
Or disguise
This is me
It's paradise

Oh my serenity
Oh my liberty
Oh I paid my price

Oh my sincerity
Oh my humanity
Oh it feels so nice

I feel so plain jane
I have no costume
I have no hairdo
A limited attitude
But I can blend in
With the best of 'em
Bring me a crowd and
Watch me get lost within

Say The Word lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

Come on lay your body down
No I won't let you down
Won't disappoint you
And go to where you've turned around
Where the lost is found
And I will join you

I'm transformed
When I see you're at peace
Call it selfish
Call it greed

I'll pick you up
I'll push you down
Be your devil
Be your clown
Say the word

I'll be your love
I'll be your hate
I'll take you now
I'll make you wait
Say the word
(Say the word)

Come on lay your body down
No I won't let you down
Won't disappoint you
And go to where you've turned around
Where the lost is found
And I will join you

I'm transformed
When I see you're at peace
Call it selfish
Call it greed

I'll pick you up
I'll push you down
Be your devil
Be your clown
Say the word

I'll be your love
I'll be your hate
I'll take you now
I'll make you wait
Say the word
(Say the word)

And it's hard to say
Better put this way
Words are a disgrace

To your sovereign reign
I will humbly state
No one takes my place

I'll pick you up
I'll push you down
Be your devil
Be your clown
Say the word

I'll be your love
I'll be your hate
I'll take you now
I'll make you wait
Say the word
(Say the word)

Kerosene Lamp lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

Have you seen a flame when it comes to life?
It was always waitin', it just needed a strike.
Have you got a match? 'Cause I'm lookin' to be lit.
Open up your stash, I'm a kerosene lamp.

I thought I told you I would need more than your average affection.

So, why? Tell me, why should I ever be cold in the night?
It just isn't right. Oh, why should I be cold?
I'm too cold.

Across this moonlit room, I see the silhouette of a man
sleepin' all alone on the edge of the bed.
But, I am right here. Are you really that tired?
Now, would it really be so hard to come to my side?

Oh, I thought I told you I would need more than just sometime attention.

Why? Tell me, why should I ever be cold in the night?
It just isn't right. Oh, why should I be cold?
Yeah, I'm too cold.

Has it been too long, am I just an old shoe?
When the trends are all gone, am I your go-to?
What did you see when you brought me in from the storm?
Our bed used to be so warm.

So, why? Tell me, why should I ever be cold in the night?
It just isn't right. Oh, why should I be cold?
Yeah, it's too cold.

Why should I ever be cold? Never be cold.

Halfway Around The World lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I don't get what people do.
They lie and they cheat and they steal from you.
So I, I made my own world.
I'm not sayin' I'm perfect yet, I've got my share of regrets.
But I, I'm doin' my best.

You make me feel like I've gone halfway around the world.
And you let me know that I'm not such a crazy girl.
All that it takes to make you happy, whatever you need to know
that you make me feel like I've gone halfway around the world.

I know what some of 'em say. Let 'em talk, let 'em chip away.
You're not real without a broken heart.
Remember lyin' beneath the stars?
We could be on Earth or Mars.
I'm so good because I'm in your arms.

Oh, you make me feel like I've gone halfway around the world.
And you let me know that I'm not such a crazy girl.
All that it takes to make you happy, whatever you need to know
that you make me feel like I've gone halfway around the world.

When did we all get so distracted?
I think we've gone insane.

You make me feel like I've gone halfway around the world.
And you let me know that I'm not such a crazy girl.
All that it takes to make you happy, whatever you need to know
that you make me feel like I've gone halfway around the world.

I don't get what people do.
They lie and they cheat and they steal from you.

Na Miso lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

Nalingi namona yo na miso
Nalingi namona yo na miso
But we are world away
Yes, we are world away

Nataka kuku kumbatiya alakini siwezi
Nataka kuku kumbatiya alakini siwezi
Cuz we are world away
Yes, we are world away

Nina ucungu sana yakuwa mbali na wewe
Nina ucungu sana yakuwa mbali na wewe
Because we are world away
Because we are world away

Nalingi namona yo na miso
Nalingi namona yo na miso
But we are world away
Yes, we are world away

Ghosts Of You lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

We were occupied
We never had to go outside
I was your alibi
We were planning our escape

We stayed up all night
With Lucy and the diamond sky
Drank cheap red wine
And talked ourselves to sleep

[Chorus:]

Please don't go
These ghosts of you
The only thing that help get me through the day
Baby please don't go
Cause I love you
You're the only one that will stay the same

We could laugh out loud
And sing until the sun came out
We took a secret vow that we would never change
You always loved to dance
I wish we had another chance
To go back in time and do it all again

[Chorus]

I don't wanna live forever
But if we could be together
Then I wouldn't mind infinity
I don't wanna live forever
Oh but I can still remember
No I wouldn't mind infinity

[Chorus x2]

All I Can Do lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk



When you're on your own
When you're at the fork in the road
You don't know which way to go
There's too many signs and arrows

You haven't left in a while
When you can't even fake a smile
When you feel ashamed
The uniform don't make you brave

[Chorus:]

All I can do is love you to pieces
Give you a shoulder to cry when you need it
When the day is long
And then night is coming down on you
All I can do
All I can do
All I can do

When you forget your name
The pleasure can't disguise your pain
You don't feel the same
I won't forget the love you made

[Chorus]

What a lovely day to shape your dreams
And you don't even have to sleep
You can make it what you want to be
You can fly away
You can change your name
Have a happy faith
If you'll be so real
Oh

[Chorus]

It's all that I can do

Spoke In Tongues lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I don't mean to get into your dreams
But you seem to think it's alright to destroy
You became such an opportunist
Somewhat dim it's a bad combonation

[Chorus:]

You can never erase
That you were not popular in school
You can't erase you were poor
And a no one
You can never erase who you were
No matter what you become
I know where you are from
And that you spoke in tongues

I know you're really just hurt and afraid
But you pretend that nothing gets to you
I'm not the one to dance on a break
But you're the one who bought me these dancing shoes

[Chorus]

Yeah yeah yeah yeah [x2]

I can still remember the day
When we first met
And I saw myself in you
I don't mean to rain on your parade
But the sky's getting dark
And there's nothing that you can do

So Cold lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

All they know is to photograph
People when they're on their knees
Say your prayers and wear your black
And be grateful it's not you and me

How am I supposed to live
Knowing that they're dying
How am I supposed to laugh
Knowing that they're crying

When did we get so cold
When did we get so cold
When did we grow so old
So old

Raise me up to where the wind blows
Out of the ghettos oh
Raise me up to where the sun glows
Out of these shadows oh

When did we get so cold
When did we get so cold
When did we grow so old
So old

Waiting For The Sun lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I don't need to be forgiven
I don't want your sympathy
It's a mad mad world
But it's still turning

Don't wanna get too complicated
Or get so dark that I can't see
Yeah it's a mad mad world
But I'm hoping

[Chorus:]

I'm waiting for the sun to shine
I wait until the day I die

I'm tired of living in the shadows
But I'm not giving up on me
It's a sad sad world
But I'm still waiting

I can't worry about tomorrow
What each new day's gunna bring
Cause every dark cloud
Has a silver lining

[Chorus x2]

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

[Chorus x2]

It's a mad mad world
Oh I'm gunna live my life
Oh
It's a mad mad world
Oh
Die
I

You Blame Yourself lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I don't know why the winter's so long
It wears me out
It goes on and on
Yeah I don't know why the winter's so long
It seems never ending
It goes on and on

I know you blame yourself but don't

oh oh oh [x6]

I don't know why this town is so small
It makes me mad
I've seen it all
Yeah I don't know why this town is so small
There's nobody left here
Everyone's gone

I know you blame yourself but don't

Oh [x6]
oh oh oh [x6]

Grow Up So Fast lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

It's mothers birthday
She's forty years
I don't know what to say
Buy her roses and cry her tears
She'll just give them away

Maybe I'll fight it
Maybe I'll fight it

[Chorus:]

Why'd I have to grow up so fast?
I just wanna stay here and laugh
Oh we only
Oh we only bloom away

You were wearing my favourite dress
When you left that day
My pillow covers your photograph
You come to me in ways

Maybe I'll find her
Maybe I'll find her

[Chorus]

I don't wanna be the one who has to be afraid
I don't wanna be the one you feel you sorry for
I just wanna be the one to make you smile
And kiss your face

It's mothers birthday
She's forty years
I don't know what to say

[Chorus x2]

Wonderful lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I'm alone in this life
And these old jeans are too tight
And now I can't pick my feet off the floor
I try to laugh but I cry
My dignity's undignified
I guess i'm really on my own

Love is like a little boy
No I'm not paranoid
But I'm onto you yeah yeah
Well I'm not seventeen
And I don't wanna be
So why am I hiding?

[Chorus:]

Is it too late to call you on the phone
Too late to tell you I'm alone
I wanna wake you from another lonely night
Is it too late to wonder where you are
Too late to hold you in my arms
Cause if you're looking for wonderful
I'm wonderful

I'm a very simple girl
And I don't fit into this world
The city lights leave me in a daze
And even though we've enver met
You know what I'm trying to forget
Some things you can never change

[Chorus]

I'm underneath
Underneath
I'm underneath
I'm underneath

[Chorus x2]

Asylum lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I get so blind
From all of these colours
Dressed up like kings and queens
But it don't mean a thing

A killer I'm not
Murderers get caught
If I'm such a criminal
Then take me away

Well I get so tired
Of the word on the wire
It's all so black and white
But how quickly it fades

We eat food for thought
And forget what we've got
She was a prisoner
Now I nearly am

Over the ocean
A world away
Ghosts from her home
Asylum can't chase away

Oh oh

Over the ocean
A world away
Ghosts from her home
Asylum can't chase away

Over the ocean
A world away
Ghosts from her home
Asylum can't chase away

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Wendy House lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

A child is born
A life begins
To take and hurt oh
A precious gift

When I'm alone
It all hits home
Don't it all just seem a little much
When I'm alone
It all hits home
Don't it all just seem a little much

And the night gets further from the day
Take me to your Wendy House to play

[Repeat all]

When I'm alone it all hits home
Don't it all just seem a little much

[Repeat 4 times]

And the night gets further from the day

Blue lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

They say we're in a state of emergency
So how come no one is panicking

Where were you when they wrote the news
And how are you, are you feeling blue

Well, the paper doesn't cause too much of a fuss
Perhaps it's because it's not, it's not sad enough

Where were you when they wrote the news
And how are you, are you feeling blue

You've never seen the colour blue

Call me in the morning, we'll go for toast and tea

Where were you when they broke the news
And how are you, are you feeling blue

You've never seen the colour blue
You've never seen the colour blue

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Well you've never ...
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
No you've never seen the colour ...
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
You've never seen the colour blue
Never seen the colour ...
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
You've never seen the colour blue
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
No no no you've never seen the colour ...
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Never the seen the colour blue
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
You've never ...
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
You've never seen the colour blue
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
No no you've never seen the colour blue, oh

You've never seen the colour blue

Dear Life lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

You'll never know how you run me down
And I don't even need you, no
And still you keep me holdin' on
Just for dear life

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

If you live a loveless life
Just blame it on me
On the count of oblivion
I'm guilty

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

No we've never been away from here
So we'll try to lose ourselves again
No we've never been away from here
So we'll try to lose ourselves again

I'm over playin' with your massive ego
Still I keep on holdin' on for dear life

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

No we've never been away from here
So we'll try to lose ourselves again
No we've never been away from here
So we'll try to lose ourselves again

When you're cold and under the covers
Does it ever bother you
Do you remember how warm the truth is
How can you live without it

No we've never been away from here
So we'll try to lose ourselves again
No we've never been away from here
So we'll try to lose ourselves again
We've never been away from here
So we'll try to lose ourselves again
We've never been away from here
So we'll try to lose ourselves again

Ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

Until We Die lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

I could almost remember your face
When I heard your voice today
I could see your lips moving
At the other end of the receiver

It was almost a very good bye
But dialtones tend to make me cry
I call back within moments
You laugh and don?t even ask why

That's what we do
Can we do it
Until we die

You don't see me but I feel so exposed
Each time there's a pause on the phone
I wish there was another button to press
So I could read your mind

In heaven we won't have to call
I'll be with you spring summer and fall
But for now soon you?ll be here
And heal in my arms as the night goes by

That's what we do
Can we do it
Until we die

So for now soon you'll be here
And heal in my arms as the night goes by

That's what we do
Can we do it
Until we die

That's what we do
Can we do it
Until we die

Souls lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

Messages from where I used to grow
Twenty thousand frames of mind
This is my soul

Relentless where I'm most alone
Twenty thousand faceless names
This is your show

And, oh, I feel
I am a wandering
A fleeting transient

Soul
All I feel is I am holding on
But only for a moment then it's gone

Covenant we will always grow
Our skin will fade transcend beyond
All we've been told

I feel I am the wandering
A fleeting transient

Soul
All I feel is I am holding on
But only for a moment then it's gone

And oh all I feel is I am holding on
But only for a moment then it's gone

Heal me
I'm healed when you see me
You see me when you feel me

Souls
All I feel is I am holding on
But only for a moment then it's gone

And oh all I feel is I am holding on
But only for a moment then it's gone
It's gone
It's gone
It's gone
It's gone
It's gone

Before You lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

Baby, before you
Well, I was bad news
In lettin' me love you
I think I can get through

Oh, baby before you
Well, I was so scared
I was a train wreck waitin' to happen
On the way to nowhere

And now I think it's kinda funny that you say you love me
You tell me that I'm crazy then you smile

And now I think I'll get through
The end of the world
And now I think I'll get through
Bein' a girl
Now I think I'll get through
Anything
And now I think I'll get through

Now honey around you
I'm feelin' so good
'Cause you picked me up out of the rough
And you polished me up and made me brand new

And baby before you, ho ho
There was just a black hole
Yeah I was beat down, blacked out
My darling you couldn't even know

But ever since I met you on a cloudy Monday
I can't believe how much I love the rain

And now I think I'll get through
The end of the world
And now I think I'll get through
Life as a girl
Now I think I'll get through
Anything
Now I think I'll get through

Ever since I met you on a cloudy Monday
I can't believe how much I love the rain

And now I think I'll get through
The end of the world
And now I think I'll get through
Life as a girl
Now I think I'll get through
Anything
Now I think I'll get through

Oh ... ho ...
Now I think I'll get through
Oh ....
Now I think I'll get through
Oh ... ho ...
And now I think I'll get through

And now I think I'll get through
Oh, and now I think I'll get through
Oh, and now I think I'll get through

M lyrics - Chantal Kreviazuk

They must mean business
To say there's nothing worse
Then to let your precious love child
Leave the planet first

'Cause, oh whoa whoa
They've gotta just let her go

All the things that you swear you're gonna do
Reservations on the next train to the moon
Pack your things cause there ain't no time lose
And all the things you never ...

So I think we're gonna have to record her
Sometimes against her will
We're gonna keep her alive with black and whites
Colour moving and still

And then, oh whoa whoa
We've gotta just let her go

All the things that you swear you're gonna do
Reservations on the next train to the moon
Pack your things cause there ain't no time to lose

Let her go
Let her go
Let her go
Let her go

All the things that you swear you're gonna do
Reservations on the next train to the moon
Pack your things cause there ain't no time to lose

All the things that you swear you're gonna do
Reservations on the next train to the moon
Pack your things cause there ain't no time to lose

No time to lose
No time to lose
No time to lose
