Waiting for the day to start... Spent all night far from home In a room not alone As a voice filled my head With the dark of the dead I tried harder to breathe as the night failed to leave... Chorus Waiting for the day to start Praying for the clouds to part Hoping for a change of heart Spent all night out of mind In a place lost to time Make a break for the door Was not there anymore Thought of you far away wished to see you again... Repeat Chorus (Words & Music Simon Parker)

From here it looks much better A mile above the ground But balloons can be deflated Sometimes we're all let down Funny if i slipped away When everybody's head was turned Gravity it say 'Maybe we have all been burned' Chorus Be with me I just need to know if I'm living Won't you be with me I'm keeping it all in so you can be with me Come on survey the damage Silent like the birds tonight But when the storm is over We'll fly the new daylight Then maybe we'll slip away when everybody's head was burned Gravity is say ' Maybe we have all been, maybe we have all been turned...' Repeat Chorus So you can be with me The 7th is the saddest day I know When you reach the end of the line When you reach the end of the line Call... Repeat Chorus (Words & Music Simon Parker)

She has that solar sister glow But I've still got far to go to get home To the place where it began Colour changed and pattern ran But every day I'm gathering clues Picking up the pieces of me...and you Chorus Deep inside, buried in time A memory of your face Desire-illuminate me and take me to that place Light me way back every time She has an elemental smile Makes it rain in her own style I was free so I went from A to B I found myself I'm all at C But every day I'm gathering clues Picking up the piece of me...and you Repeat Chorus The truth it shows when Everything is in slo-mo My world remains so lost in space And I cant say but I think about it every day The world remains so lost in space (Words & Music Simon Parker)

I know what they know But i refuse to show my hand at this time I go where they go But I walk a different side of the line I take what they take But it leaves me feeling dead to this world I feel the blue snakes And sense that they've got no place to go Chorus It's like writing all your thoughts on the back of a stamp And mailing to the wrong address Packing all your things in the back of a car And driving over Beachy Head So now when they call I leave them standing out in the street It's you and that's all You made me smile through tears and defeat Repeat Chorus Why don't we take a raincheck on Sunset Street? Why don't we take a raincheck on Sunset Street? We could take the weight off-feel complete Why don't we take a raincheck on Sunset Street? We could leave those past times buried deep Why don't we take... (Words & Music Simon Parker)

Took a room at the Plaza suite beside the family plot Gonna drive out to Nashville soon, Hollywood forgot... Chorus You never strayed far from home Stayed cool when they picked at your bones It's sad-life runs away with the prize But genius is measured by time I hear you're keeping mixed company with at thousand clowns Harry Kellerman's saying things-it's all over town Repeat Chorus You looked good, you were fine I bet you could turn water to wine I tell friends all the time Your heyday '71-'79 Hitching down a dead end road Nice girls they don't explode Nice girls don't explode (Words & Music Simon Parker)

Bird in the sky you on my mind This is the way the bind lead the blind Say you don't know like I don't know Blood on the glass stain on my heart There is no way to tell us apart And say you don't know like i don't know Chorus You said wear something that's grey i was only one step away from the girl The blue sky fell in and it rained Now I'm only dressed for the end of the word Wide of the mark and lost on the trail There is no time to reach for the rail And say you don't know like I don't know Repeat Chorus You said where something that's grey... I'm dressed for the end of the world (Words & Music Simon Parker)

Times a wheel, a heart shaped wheel Times a wheel, a heart shaped wheel Chorus Everybody's busy going places, nobody's around these days Everybody's busy going crazy nobody's around these days Your mind's a wheel, a heart shaped wheel Your mind's a wheel, a heart shaped wheel Repeat Chorus These days... Linus! (Words & Music Simon Parker)

She says she's no need for a diary 'Every single day is the same to me The moment comes along and I watch it pass Every single story is the same as the last' IS every single story just the same as the last...? Chorus We must stop meeting like this I've been asleep since the very first kiss We must stop meeting like this Lost inside the moment where the lights they don't change Colour fades to morning when the day remains grey From the second that I met you the clocks have stood still Now time is right behind me coming in for the kill Time is right behind me coming in for the kill Repeat Chorus We must stop meeting like this It's hard to know if I really exist We must stop meeting like this Why do the pages stay bank? Are you just pulling rank, now? Why, did you write me a part That will just break my heart now? (Words & Music Simon Parker)

You know it's true you are my best friend I've come to depend on you But everyday I'm counting backwards trying to make good The doubts that cross my mind I'm like a ghost you saw the most back then When we first me the snow was melting And you were shouting at cars Then summer came we watched the blue sky it made us all cry Now i cant find my voice I'm like a ghost the one who loved you most back then Now i can't find my voice I'm like a ghost The one you ditched the most back then Days-that seem much colder At night the spirits older Somewhere the spirit smoulders And we ride the ghost train home You know it's true we're on a fast ride But something inside is wrong And everyday we do things your way It's time for my say But i cant find my voice (Words & Music Simon Parker)

Bought a gun and walked into town i didn't know that they'd shut it all down and moved on... Days become years Hills have eyes, walls have ears As the night shivers down Shadows cast make no sound And i'm lost to the world (that) never cared never heard Today.. Used to have that look in my eye Can't see it now cos I'm always crying and it's gone Gone, gone, gone Lost my mind I don't know how to feel Walking round like I'm on sleeping pills and it's wrong Wrong, wrong wrong I got it wrong Lights shiver down Shadows cast make no sound As the ghost on the stairs, trips me up unawares And I'm lost to a world never cared, never heard Today... I bought a gun and I walked into town I didn't know that they'd shut it all down and moved on Took my place at the back of the line Can i just say I never knew what to say so i lied It's wrong, it's wrong I got it wrong (Words & Music Simon Parker)

There's no need to feel much There's no need to cry I fell asleep at Christmas Life just passed me by Chorus This hangdog smile I'm living It's all that I was given This hang dog smile means more than words can say You told me it was over You said we should pretend So i sent my weight in flowers 'Cos pollen's not your friend... Repeat Chorus

Blue snakes surround me Blue snakes surround me (Words & Music Simon Parker)

about

'Blue Snakes' was the second Villareal album and ventures into slightly darker territory, but is still full of pop melodies. Again the Sparklehorse and classic indie influence is present, but there is an underlying world-weariness to a lot of these tracks, making it a a fascinating listen.
