forget-the-night-aheadThe lyrics to The Twilight Sad’s “Forget The Night Ahead” don’t seem to be available anywhere online. Here’s my solution. Many thanks to redskyatnight from The Twilight Sad forum for typing these in from the booklet.

REFLECTION OF THE TELEVISION

There’s people downstairs
I’m more than a fighter you know
There’s people downstairs
It wasn’t even yours to share

I know you are old
Heavy hand takes hold
television’s too loud
he leaves without a sound

And I know you are old
Heavy hand takes hold

There’s people downstairs
I stole it from a letter
Off your tongue it rolled
Sheltered from the weather you could be so bold
You told me it’d get better
And I know you’re old

There’s people downstairs
I’m more than a fighter you know
Heavy hand takes hold
And I know you are old

There’s people downstairs (x3)
I’m more than a fighter
I’m more than a fighter you know
There’s people downstairs
I’m more than a fighter
People downstairs
There’s people downstairs

I BECAME A PROSTITUTE

There’s a girl in the crowd
And she’s bawling her eyes out
Only girl in the town with her fingers in eyelids

And we’re all fine in the back of your mind
If we do what we like then we could be with you tonight
if we bleed you dry
We’re alright in the back of our minds
If we do what we like then we could be with you tonight
if they bleed you dry
Taken half your tide, taken all your tide
If we bleed you dry

Bleed you dry
We’ve taken half your tide
If we bleed you dry

You are the bearer of a womb without love
You could have had it all
Is that what you said
Is that what you said on a low ride
You said in your hands you’ll stay, all with me today (x2)

There’s a hand in the till
Still believing what she sells
Only girl in the town with her fingers in eyelids

We’re all fine in the back of your mind
If we do what we like then we could be with you tonight
if they bleed you dry
Taken half your tide, taken all your tide

Chorus(x2)

Bleed you dry
I’m taking half your tide
And If I bleed you dry


SEVEN YEARS OF LETTERS

If you say go
There’s a chance that we’re running scared
When they say you’ll never be there
In the dress that you’ll never wear

It’s a sorry affair
We’re on a hiding to nowhere
It’s only right to swear
They pray that I won’t answer you back
It’s the dance that we’ll never share
And alarms that you can’t do without
Running scared
We’re on a hiding to nowhere

No, no, no
It takes a chance a truth or dare
Is there a chance your lover be spare
If we say that we are running scared

Chorus

So you button, you button your lip
And you button, you button your lip
Button, button your lip

If you say go
There’s a chance that we’re running scared
When they say you’ll never be there
In the dress that you’ll never wear
So you button, you button your lip
And you button, you button your lip

We’re on a hiding to nowhere
They pray that I won’t answer you back
It’s the dance that we’ll never share
And alarms that you can’t do without
Running scared
We’re on a hiding to nowhere

MADE TO DISAPPEAR

So show him what you lose when you answer no
Catch the cold
You sail on your own, we share in the toll
And we’re all alone

Reminds me of her groan
You said, forget the night ahead
She’ll never find her on her own
Find her on her own

So tell me if it’s wrong then who’s to know?
We share in the toll
We sailed on our own
And she fits the mould

To the one we know
You’ll never have some honest fun
You said, lover be fair throw your ties to the pair
You’ll always have your honest one

On the way to Bordeaux
You’ll never have some honest fun
You said, lover be fair throw your ties to the fare

You’ll always be your honest one
I’ll always be your honest one
You’ll always have some honest fun

So tell me, do you lose when you answer no
Catch the cold
You sail on your own, we share in the toll
And we’re all alone
Find her on her own, goodbye
Find her on her own
You’ll never find her on her own
Find her on her own, find her on her own

She told you to be fair
I only want some honest fun
She said, lover be fair throw your eyes to the floor
You’re looking at the guilty one

So tell me what you know and then it will be said and done
She said, be gentle, be fair was the fog even there
You’re looking at the guilty one
I only want some honest fun

She told you to be fair
I only want some honest fun
She said, lover be fair throw your eyes to the floor
You’re looking at the guilty one

So tell me what you know and then it will be said and done
She said, be gentle, be fair was the fog even there
You’re looking at the guilty one
I only want some honest fun
I’ll always be your honest one

THE ROOM

And your face is turning hard through the winter
There’s nails in our feet
Hide her, don’t break her
And we’ll hide her
And we’ll leave

And her blood is never spilled after dinner
There’s wine on our breath
We’ll hide her, don’t wake her
And we’ll hide her
And we’ll leave

You’re the grandson’s
You’re the grandson’s toy in the corner
Don’t tell anyone else
You were seen in the cherry tree
Look what you have done
‘Cause you’re a handsome
Just a clever boy on the border
Don’t tell anyone else
And you were seen near the hollow tree
Look what you have done

You’re all on your own ’cause you said you failed to care

There’s a message in the card in your favour
And we’re grinding our teeth
Hide her
Don’t wake her
And we’ll hide her
And we’ll leave

Chorus

You’re all on your own
‘Cause you said you failed to care
Don’t leave your morals there
And you said you failed to care

Do you fall when we dragged her along
You will never know Thursday’s gone
I called you every name from her son
Did you fall
‘Cause you said you failed to care (x2)

THAT BIRTHDAY PRESENT

Have another skin full
Put it in your eye
And if it’s lying on the table
Don’t be so shy

You should be afraid
Take it everywhere
Or you could have the bruises
When the water’s on its way
I could be someone you hate
Familiar to the taste
The feather’s on the blind sight
And always on your case

Have another skin full
Put it in your eye

So you pass it, you pass it
The ceiling’s black and grey
Pushing your arms with her weight
You pass it, you pass it
The purple rope won’t tear
Why do you rest when you stare

The curtains closed again
If your lady’s on parade
You take it on the call there ’cause you have this made
Because your birthday’s getting cold
Just wishing you could go
‘Cause we could be much older
If you only did what you’re told

Have another skin full
Put it in your eye
And if it’s lying on the table
Don’t be so shy

So you pass it, you pass it
The ceiling’s black and grey
You’re pushing your arms with her weight
Winning prize for holding shame
You pass it, you pass it
The purple rope won’t tear
Why do you rest when you stare

So you pass it, you pass it
No rare, take your hands off all the chairs
Will you play off all the others
If you say it will be fair
Your birthday cards with no presents
With your charms down by your side
Will you play off all the others
You’ll go nowhere
If you tip toe so slowly
And you’ll go nowhere

FLOORBOARDS UNDER THE BED

Taken all of our mistakes
And we’ve turned them into aeroplane
Still the boy’s throwing rocks off my face
And the boy’s throwing rocks off my face (x2)

INTERRUPTED

The room was so tight
I’ll see you in the morning light
You and I could bury them all
You said your head was so sore
So tight, depends on who you invite
You and I will bury them all so deep in the snow

And I won’t feed them, feed them to the dogs again
But you come and greet them, greet them with the dogs again
You are the olive rose
Bite down on your pillow

And harrow to woman you sold
Take it all off
See your story unfold
Invite you in and I’ll see your murmurs below
And harrow to the woman you sold
Now it’s you and I
You and I, you and I know
That it’s you and I

They put up no fight but you’re so hard to fright
You and I will bury them all
You said your head was so sore
Such a sorry sight
Especially in the morning light
You and I will bury them all so deep in the snow
And I won’t feed you, feed you to the dogs again
Your heart stops beating
Beat them to the ground again
You are the olive rose
Bite down on your pillow

And harrow to woman you sold
Take it all off
See your story unfold
Invite you in and I’ll see your murmurs below
And harrow to the woman you sold
Now it’s you and I
You and I, you and I know
That it’s you and I

That it’s you and I, you and I
That it’s you and I, you and I

You and I will bury them, bury them
You and I will bury them, bury them
You and I will bury them, bury them
That it’s you and I, you and I

THE NEIGHBOURS CAN’T BREATHE

They’re no thoughts of mine, this time
When the paint went dry, don’t fight ’cause you’re right
Did it pass you by, when the shower wasn’t on?
You had to lie, your secret’s safe and sound

Don’t frown, don’t frown
‘Cause everybody’s wearing black clothes and I’m wearing white
Don’t frown, don’t frown
There’s your sister with her answer and she’s always right
You keep pulling all the heart strings

You hide it in the cupboard
You’re under the sheets
You’re frowning and you know it
You’re happy the neighbours can’t breathe
You’re coming strong when your friend went wrong

I’m not in the white when we play hide and seek
I’m not in the white when we play hide and seek

They’re no thoughts of mine this time
Is your camera blind, don’t fight ’cause you’re right
Will it pass you by, when your sister’s dead and gone?
She had to lie, her secret’s safe and sound

Don’t frown, don’t frown
‘Cause everybody’s wearing black clothes and I’m wearing white
Don’t frown, don’t frown
There’s your sister with her answer and she’s always right
You keep pulling all the heart strings

You hide it in the cupboard
You’re under the sheets
You’re frowning and you know it
You’re happy the neighbours can’t breathe
You’re coming strong when your friend went wrong

I’m not in the white when we play hide and seek

You’re playing in the forest, get down on your knees
Forgetting where you’re from
You’re wrong, you’re begging please

You’re coming on strong
When your friend went wrong
I’m not in the white when we play hide and seek

Although your friend went wrong
I’m not in the white when we play hide and seek (x3)

AT THE BURNSIDE

We can’t all be there so far
At the Burnside
We’re taking everyone in the car
to the Burnside

The brothers were born with a lump in their hearts
Wearing no clothes
Someone knows where they are
Sharing their lungs
Seeing ghosts in the park
Houses in trees
Holding hands with a spark

We can’t all be there so far
At the Burnside
We’re taking everyone in the car
To the Burnside

You’re bending the truth with your hand in your heart
Games for a laugh
Jump from my mark
And we can’t all be there so far
At the Burnside

Hope for the best
When you are flying your kite
It happened before, taken from her side
Wearing no clothes
Someone knows where they are
Holding our torches through the night
At the Burnside

No sign, no sign, no sign anymore (x3)

Anymore, anymore, anymore
