Dreams Away

October 29, 2011

When i turned towards you
you were never there
when i turned away from you
that’s when i find you care

the mind conceals
what the heart can feel
whose image is it now
is it us that’s real

give you my heart you want my soul
give you a part you want it all
give you the rose you chose the blade
and then you cut the dreams away

making love
with only words
voices tough
but still not heard


Slicer

October 29, 2011

Turn away another meaning
hold the dream a change in time
face this way where are we going
trapped in this state

force the change who moves for you
standing still against the rain
taking aim into the structures
the time we take

and i remember what you said

turn this way who moves for you
pray towards the gods we break
face the strange who am i calling
i just can’t wait


She Takes It All

October 28, 2011

Wait just a moment going too fast
i want it all but i want it to last
there’s no reflection nothing at all
all she wants is someone to call

a graceless beauty that never waits
first she fakes and then she breaks
i’ve got the questions she’s got the needs
there aren’t no promises just what you see

and she takes and she takes
she takes it all
and she takes and she takes
she takes my soul away

what do you see when you turn off the light
i want to see it in your eyes
just give me one word one’s all i need
is it you you love or is it me


Inside My Head

October 28, 2011

Mary calls out for an answer
waits all day to question me
mary moves towards the shadows
i can hear her call for me

mary calls for me to answer
dragging me down to her needs
mary moves into the shadows
i can hear her pray for me

inside my head she said
inside my head

mary screams out for an answer
what can it be that no one see’s
mary moves beyond the shadows
i can hear her scream for me


Judy/Judy

October 28, 2011

Dark night standing on the corners
no sight pulling off a loner
can’t fight they’re driving me under the skin

judy judy
how can i get through to you
judy judy
i’m slipping out of you

we exchanged eyes down on the border
your glass body shines as we get older
i’m nothing more than a colour burst in your mind

i’m down man they push me under
i drown from the rain and the thunder
no sound the needle slips under the skin

judy judy
how can i get through to you
judy judy
i’m slipping out of you


Walk Alone

October 28, 2011

I saw you in the morning
i caught you in the light
i loved you till the sun went out
i moved into the night

i heard somebody laughing
i heard somebody scream
would you be my candle
and burn me with a dream

i’ll walk away
i’ll walk alone

i sold my soul to have you
twice now to forget
would i sell it for a third time
to have you back again


Turn Around

October 28, 2011

Outside the moment
in the shadow of the eye
when the whispers come out slowly
and they open up the sky
i heard the voices calling
i thought i heard your name
but the mystery divides us
then leaves me with the blame

turn around
turn around look again once more

i was hoping for a reason
but all i get is lies
when the hand came down to touch us
and it opened up your eyes
i see the clouds all rising
frozen to the wall
it’s getting near the hour
and it’s time for us to go


Remembrance

October 28, 2011

I jump my mind to see the day
you turn around i turn away
what am i for what can i do
is what i see really you

remembering to forget
remembering i’d get you yet
remembering what’s it for
remembering let her go

wasted day waste away
is see your words but not your face
the rage of fears the rage of  tears
the rage of you and those lost years

remembering to forget
remembering what i said
remembering what’s it for
remembering let her go
remembering yesterday
remembering it’s gone away
remembering what’s it for
remembering let her go

Slip Away

October 28, 2011

Yellow cars inside my mind
i want to look but i can’t find
another day again i’ll try
another chance it goes on by

hold on there’s something that i want to say
oh never mind it slipped away

open my eyes look in my eyes
walk this way i’ll close my eyes
walk away again you’re gone
walk away i guess i won’t

hold on there’s something that i want to say
oh never mind it slipped away
hold on there’s something that i’ve got to say
oh never mind you slipped away

they’re only dreams these phony dreams
they fake me out they play so mean
how can i say what’s in my head
or is it in my heart instead

open my eyes look in my eyes
walk this way i’ll close my eyes
just walk away again you’re gone
walk away i guess i won’t

hold on there’s something that i want to say
oh never mind it slipped away
hold on there’s something that i want to say
oh never mind you slipped away
oh never mind i’ll slip away


Snow Horses

October 28, 2011

I was running out of mornings
i was singing with the angels above
i thought i heard your voice a calling
thought i felt a piece of love

i was standing on your mountains
i was moving through the valleys below
i had left my life in your hands
for piece of mind i give you my soul

oh the nights were hard
and the dreams were soft
but the times they
weren’t long enough
so we cut our hair
bought ourselves a gun
and then we rode into the sun
to fade away to fade away

i thought i saw you in my eyes
feeling lonely a stranger to hold
can’t you hear me softly falling
spirits frozen electric cold




Take Back The Night

October 28, 2011

Wake up the sky is falling
rains parade across your face
lost again who are you calling babe

down the hall the baby’s crying
all you give is all you take
the hand is slowly rocking as you wait

close your eyes no one’s watching
close your eyes tonight
almost there almost touching
we can still take back the night

i see you ever waiting
looking for that embrace
i only tried to warn you
it’s too late


She’s Your Lover Now

October 28, 2011

She saved me from the city
she saved me from the rain
she took me through the shelters
then brought me back again
she took me to the water
she led me to the edge
and then she left me waiting
with a bullet in my head

she’s your lover now
she’s your lover now

she picked me up broken
in the middle of the road
she took me to the river
then let me overload
i’ve got the cold cold shivers
i’m falling to my knees
she just turned around
and then she dusted me

sometimes i need a lover
but now i need a friend
to take me through the darkness
and bring me back again
