I found this one. From :http://www.geocities.com/chloe_dancer.geo/the_frames/lyrics.html

FALLING SLOWLY (Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova - from Once)

I don't know you but I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me and always fool me
And I can't react

You have suffered enough and what with yourself
It's time that you won
Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time, raise your hopeful voice
You had the choice, you've made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'll paint it black

Games that never amount
To more than themselves
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time, raise your hopeful voice
You had the choice, you've made it now

Copied from http://fp.acappella3.f9.co.uk/falling_slowly.htm

FALLING SLOWLY
Lester Simpson, Voice Publishing

Another Friday dance-hall drunken night, hung over 'til morning.
Unfamiliar bed-sit passion rubber-stamped with a government health warning.
Milk, mail and headaches arrive, and I'm counting cracks in the ceiling.
There's toast and closeness and I'm all confused with this warm unfamiliar feeling.

For the glass is rising and the temperature's high,
But I'm still failing slowly.

No conversation, no forwarding address, no ties, it goes without saying.
Just love well and leave and then off with the tide, was the game that I thought I was playing.
But back in my steel world, trapped by the freedom, how I feel there's no way of knowing;
And the routine can['t] hide, there's no turning back, and the need to be near you is growing.

A cold back against a bulkhead, sleepless now at midnight.
She buries her head in the dark, dark sea and I wonder if she's all right.
Then a voice comes on the radio, confirms we've got foul weather.
Can you hear that same voice far away? Do you wish that we were together?

There's no bawdy barroom tales of weekend conquest.
You've left this sailor all at sea;
And I'm alone with my private thoughts, warm in the memory.
Can this be happening to me?

So I'll just dream about the shore lights that'll tell me that I'm home,
And I'll step down upon the quay-side, maybe wonder why I roam.
For we may be more than a weekend obsession. Perhaps I'm always a sailor,
But I know I want you, and I know I need you, as a lover but not as a jailer.

Meanwhile, what HAS happened to the CBS website? Funny way to celebrate a tenth birthday, taking it all off line.

Apologies for the temporary loss of the Coope Boyes & Simpson and No Masters websites. Both will be back on line as soon as Coope Boyes and Simpson get back from their tour. In the meanwhile, please mail Georgina as shown on the temporary website if you'd like any information about Coope Boyes & Simpson or any other No Masters musicians or recordings.
