Better Than Ezra - Absolutely Still Lyrics




This Grey room,
This bunker,
The air is humming
Us to sleep

While outside,
The city hurries;
The endless worries
Are out of reach

Promise me we'll never leave this room,
A million years from now would be too soon.

The world is spinning turning day to night
And my thoughts are running at the speed of light
Got an empty feeling that I never want to fill
Absolutely still
I waited longer 'cause I needed proof
That every door I shut is leading me to you
And there's a nervous feeling that i never want to kill
Absolutely still

We were running
From the same noise,
We were stuck in
The same pursuit

Now the door's locked
And I find that
The dizzy madness
Is bleeding through

Promise me you'll never leave this room,
A million years from now would be too soon.

The world is spinning turning day to night
And my thoughts are running at the speed of light
Got an empty feeling that I never want to fill
Absolutely still
I waited longer 'cause I needed proof
That every door I shut is leading me to you
And there's a nervous feeling that I never want to kill
Absolutely still

Promise me you'll never leave this room,
A million years from now would be too soon.

The world is spinning turning day to night
And my thoughts are running at the speed of light
Got an empty feeling that I never want to fill
Absolutely still
I waited longer 'cause I needed proof
That every door I shut is leading me to you
And there's a nervous feeling that I never want to kill
Absolutely still

I'll go anywhere you want tonight
'cause my head is spinning like a satellite
I got a restless feeling that I never want to fill
I'm absolutely still

  5. Luann Rouff

  9. Phil W

    Better Than Erza just rocks....I remember listening to them in High school yeeeears ago...they never lost a step

  10. Shain Knowles

    Better Than Ezra has hung in so well for a small band from the deep south. One of the better bands to come out of the 90's.

  11. Phil Mogler

    funny bro, lol :-p

  12. Zinaiita

    I like this song :3

  18. Ayelet Daphna

    wow this is beautiful! is it made "frame by frame" or is it a video footage? very nice music video

  19. Piang Duremdes

    It's hard to describe the feeling this song gives me...every time I hear it I feel...free.

  20. Nina Nina

    I like Val's better though. (:

  22. Brad Fontaine

    Great song, Val Emmich's version is 10x better though

  23. Sara Boudwin

    I hate to say it, but I really expected more from this video. I love the song sooo much that I just really felt the video lacked the beauty and passion the song possessed. But they definitely made up for it with Just One Day.

  24. Sara Boudwin

    Omg... I didn't even think about that. Wow... lol. KG is getting old. SO how the hell does he still look so tasty... lol.

  42. Noellenc

    Are you kidding? They have been around since the early 90's. Ever heard Good ("It was good living with, wah ahh") or Desperately Wanting (I remember through the wet grass, falling a step behind, both of never tiring, desperately wanting) or their newer songs Extraordinary or A Lifetime?? They are classic. My fav band. They are pretty much awesome :)
