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


Biting On Clouds

October 28, 2011

Turn to reason doors revolving
seasons bringing us together
pray to winter gone evolving
clouds controlled wrap round your shoulders

people function concepts forming
forcing us into equations
movements slowly windows falling
ghosts and fingers in the air

biting on clouds
when you get so high

image fades into the laughter
sensing lies that touch my face
turn to reason the equation
clouds are falling at my feet

biting on clouds
when you get so high
biting on clouds
when you touch the sky


She’s The Bad Guy

October 28, 2011

She’s got connections a rascal valiant
white charging gnomes in the dusted sphere
hoping for a nightmare sleeping in the sun
deserted angels a secret fear
she’s the bad guy

she knows no money a collector of love
a cheque on her soul sells security
looking for a lover looking for another
looking for someone she can have for free
she’s the bad guy
