FRIENDS AND LOVERS

I see her walking past my window
With milk in her hands for the friends that she’s made
Got tears in her eyes for the days that have gone away

She remembers a handsome young man
And how he made her laugh
When they ran, and ran, and ran
And the way he touched so gently
His eyes were blue and strong and free
And they way he said ‘Marry me, marry me”

And she remembers kissing after dark
And the way he smiled and played so wild
And the way her children laughed

And how she prayed her days would last forever
cause she says her life was just her
Friends and lovers
Friends and lovers
Friends and lovers

I see her walking home
Same time same dress
She wonders when her life became this mess
She needs hello or how’d you do
She’ll tell you her stories
How every word is true
She’ll tell you every word is true

And she remembers kissing after dark
And the way he smiled and played so wild
And the way her children laughed
But now she prays her days won’t last forever
Cos she says there’s no life when you got no
Friends and Lovers
Friends and Lovers

 

RIP IT UP

Something must be done
A western face cries from the pages
See a child with a gun
The same mistakes run through the ages

See a bullet burn
Bought from a country we charge with peace
Watch the tables turn
They say they’re in the wrong hands but who are we

Rip it up
More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are headlines and they won’t blow away
More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are our headlines
Cause these are all our days

How many die before we try
We have the means to end
A genocide won’t turn the tide
Ignore a continent

Rip it up
More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are headlines and they won’t blow away
More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are our headlines
Cause these are all our days

So where do we turn To get some truth in it
A breath of time holds a thousand voices
Should we get use to it
When the profits god and war rejoices
See the pictures run
Knowing eyes on a ward of death
They know none return
We turn the page. shake our heads

Rip it up
More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are our headlines and they won’t blow away

More than I can say
I wanna rip it up
But these are our headlines
Cause these are all our days

 

KICK THE DOOR

I see your eyes across the room
You shake your hair, I know what you’re doing
You know we’ve played this game before
If you and I walk out that door we’re ruined
You said that you had no idea
When you walked in that I’d be here
We’ve played this game so many times
We’ve danced and dance, we know the lines
And somehow you forget
You said we were through

You say you miss me when I’m not around
You say I’m drowning
I’m on solid ground

You kick the door
I run and hide
You know that I want you
But I don’t know why

It’s getting hard
I need your touch
You know that I want you
I want you so much

So here we are again
Scared to tell the truth again
Two easy mistakes

I just lie here silently
I feel you lying next to me
Who’s fast awake
Now this is when the shouting starts
We do our best to break our hearts

You know we should be bailing out
There’s nothing here worth working out
But you say we can make it
Just one more time we’ll fake it

You say you miss me when I’m not around
You say I’m drowning
I’m on solid ground
You kick the door
I run and hide
You know that I want you
But I don’t know why

It’s getting hard
I need your touch
You know that I want you
I want you so much

Don’t tell me that things can change
cause I’ll be the one left out in the rain
Out in the rain just trying to say
What I can from this pain
From this pain

You kick the door
I run and hide
You know that I want you
But I don’t know why

It’s getting hard for me
All I do is dream of your touch
You know that I want you
I want you so much

You kick the door
I just run away and I hide
You know that I want you
But I don’t know why

 

SOUL SWIMMING

Soul Swimming, drowning in blue
Sirens are singing saying nothing is new
I feel the doubt ripping strips from my heart
while my imperfections they threaten to tear us apart.

Soul swimming, diving serene
can’t say I’m winning, theres monsters in the deep.

I feel the doubt ripping strips from my heart.
While my imperfections they threaten to tear me all apart.

Somebody help me, is there someone out there?
Someone console me and show me that you care

Because I’ve dived too deep and I’m trying
I’m tryin’ hard just to breathe

Soul Swimming so dark and so warm
but I cant enjoy it, as I wait, I wait for the storm

I feel the doubt ripping strips from my heart
while my imperfections they threaten to tear me all apart

Somebody help me, is there someone out there?
Someone console me and show me that you care

Because I’ve dived too deep I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’ hard just to breathe
because I’ve dived too deep and I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’ hard just to breathe

The trick is to breathe…

 

I’M SORRY

You said you wanted more than I could bring, More than birds can sing

You said you needed time to find yourself, but you found someone else

You said I was your one and only, You said with me that you’d never be lonely

And I drank in every lieI am sorry… I am sorry

So here I am apologizing but one question keeps on rising

Why… why?

We’ve closed this chapter; leave the title till the end… “your lost and naive friend”

We’ve built this tower. You built the steps of sand. You don’t care where I land. You’re holding someone else’s hand

You said I was you’re one and only You said with me that you’d never be lonely.  And I drank in every lie

I am sorry… I am sorry

Here I’m apologizing but one question keeps on rising.  Why… tell me why

LOST DIRECTION

I’m on this train again
Past the point I’ve been past
A thousand times
Watching the silver tracks
counting all the cracks
I find in my mind

But all I really need is you…

I go back many years
And visit all the tears
That pushed me down this road
I look at all the crossings
The left and rights of walking
Its a heavy load

All the people I could have been
And past the places I should have seen

But all I really need is…
Yeah, all I really need is…

There must be more to life
There must be more to try
I’m running, yes, I’m running
But I’ve lost direction

There must be more to life
There must be more to try
I’m running, yes, I’m running
But I’ve lost direction

All these places a trains can give
With time and rhythm and ways to live

I wish that there were words that I could say
But poetry keeps getting in the way
To let you feel how I felt with that kiss
But the best that I can do is just sing this…
The best that I can do is just sing this…

(harmonica break)

All I really need is you…

There must be more to life
There must be more to try
I’m running, yes, I’m running
But I’ve lost direction

There must be more to life
There must be more to try
I’m running, yes, I’m running
But I’ve lost direction

There must be more to life
There must be more to try
I’m running, yes, I’m running
But I’ve lost direction

BALL OF EARTH
Steal the night To a light that’s still far away You’re still further

Pace the floor Find the door through a fish-eyed stare Search for tomorrow

Time creeps like a southern storm Time marches in uniform

But your smile It sends me a thousand rainbows
Catch my eye, Reflect in this hotel window

I wish that I could see you again, My friend

A ball of earth falls through the sky
A million hearts and souls break forth tomorrow

I send a kiss out to the night
I hope it finds your lips and soon I will follow
Oh…

(instrumental interlude)

Sit and stare at this prize of a foreign sky No joy for me.

Need to share all this wonder I’ve chanced upon I need you to see

Cry… wonder who’d hear me now? Fly into your arms, but how?

But your smile  It sends me a thousand rainbows
Catch my eye reflected in this hotel window

I wish that I could see you again, my friend

A ball of earth falls through the sky
A million hearts and souls break forth tomorrow

I send a kiss out to the night I hope it finds your lips and soon I will follow

A ball of earth falls through the sky A million hearts and souls break forth tomorrow

I send a kiss out to the night I hope it finds your lips and soon I will follow
Oh no, no no…

Steal the night to a light that’s still far away You’re still further

ROOF TOP

He sits on his rooftop She opens his wine
He’s drinking alone and it’s not the first time
He stares at her back and his eyes traces that sweet line

He feels the chill as it touches his heart
Is it the guilt, too much time apart
He calls her name but stops so it’s lost in the dark

He sits and dwells on their time apart
Building an empire, Breaking her heart
Searching for words and starting anew
If he’d just listen, then he’d hear the truth

All you ever wanted All you ever needed Is here in my arms

All you ever wanted All you ever needed was here

All you ever wanted All you ever needed Was here in my arms

All you ever wanted All you ever needed was here… Right here

(instrumental interlude)

He climbed the staircase where nothing is new
The darkness can chill him the dreams that came true
He got it all But it came at a price
Who in here wouldn’t live their life twice?  ’cause living is nice….

He sits and dwells on their time apart
Building an empire Breaking her heart
Searching for words And starting anew
If he’d just listen, then he’d hear the truth

All you ever wanted All you ever needed Was here in my arms
All you ever wanted All you ever needed Was here
All you ever wanted all you ever needed Was here in my arms
All you ever wanted All you ever needed
Was here….Right here

He closes his eyes and the song ends
But who shares love when the replay begins

POUR MY WINE

The wind’s been blowing way too long
And I’m starting to lose my mind
And now the rain’s started
And I’m broken-hearted
I’m running three hours behind

I know I said that I’d be home in time for the evening news
The world’s been fired and I’m so tired
I’m starting to live the blues

Just pour my wine I’ll be fine Give me time I’m coming home to you

Another tree’s past and it won’t be the last
But it’s a quarter to three or four (?)
I could hire a car but if they’ve gone too far
I’m here until they open the door

I keep my pain way down deep
Where no one else can see
It feels so right
But sometimes at night
It’s starting to eat at me

Just pour my wine I’ll be fine Give me time I’m coming home to you

(bass solo)

(spoken)
Sometimes I feel like I’m in the middle of a really bad Andy Warhol story. When I’m just famous for being fifteen minutes late. I mean, that’s on a good day. It also depends on how important the meeting, or the appointment – the rendezvous – whatever it is. How important it is directly relates to how late I’ll be. Could be a couple of days, sometimes. Almost makes you totally believe that there’s someone up there. Someone controlling things. Otherwise, why would these things happen? Like there’s God, or gods, up there… just having a laugh. Having a laugh. Enjoying a glass of wine, and just having a laugh. Just having a laugh.

Pour my wine I’ll be fine Give me time I’m coming home to you

Ah just pour my wine Yeah I’ll be fine Just give me time I’m coming home to you

I’m coming home I’m coming home to you I’m coming home to you I’m coming home

I’m coming home… to you…

.
SAME RECORD

It’s been a war to get out of bed
Fighting a battle both sides alone in my head
I fake surprise when I feel the floor
And I hear a knocking indeed
And its there at my cellar door

And the same record plays on my radio
The same records play on my radio

And the shadow brings dusk till dawn
I look at all that I own
And there’s nothing to put on

Cuz nothing here reminds me of me
Two cans side by side cause it buy one get one free

And the same record plays on my radio
The same records play on my radio
Just tell me there’s more
If that’s all there is
Then there’s nothing to explore
And I screaming, I’m screaming…inside I’m laughing

I try to be who you want me to be
And every week I buy what you tell me I should read
And I drive the car I’m supposed to drive
I’ve got 2.4 and my prefect wife
And I’m trying to be who you want me to be
The chat show host on my HD TV

And the same record plays on my radio
Yeah the same records play on my radio

Just tell me there’s more If this is all there is Then there’s nothing to explore

And I’m screaming Screaming Screaming Screaming inside I’m laughing

 

SOMETHING’S WRONG

I know there’s something wrong
You’ve been cleaning the house for way too long
You whisper so I don’t hear
That look in your eye says there’s no one near

We never talk now, we only shout
Living in silence that’s what we’re about
Burning bridges and building walls
Biding time until it all falls

I know there’s something wrong
I’ve been killing time for way too long
A day with this luke warm beer
I’ve got nothing to say, and no one to hear

We never talk now, we only shout
Living in silence that’s what we’re about
Burning bridges and building walls
Biding time until it all falls

I know there’s something wrong
I know there’s something wrong
I know there’s something wrong
I know there’s something, something, something

I know there’s something wrong
I know there’s something wrong
I know there’s something wrong
I know there’s something, something, something

I know there’s something wrong
I know there’s something wrong
I know there’s something wrong

I know there’s something wrong
Maybe it’s all ‘cos we just don’t get along

 

THIS IS HAPPENING
These shoes don’t fit, I’ve had them on before.
But I squeeze til they’re on because I know what shoes are for.
This waters getting hot, but no one here will move.
We wait til the skin peels off and there’s nothing left to prove,
I got nothing to lose.

Dear sir, did you just say the sky was falling down
I recognize your face so I don’t see you around.

And the lies that you made did you  laugh while you saved
Cause the next chapter is clear, how long til it comes clear

Basically I’m hungry, basically I need some love.

These shoes don’t fit, I’ve had them on before.
But I squeeze til they’re on because I know what shoes are for.

This waters getting hot, but no one here will move
We wait til the skin peels off and there’s nothing left to prove,
We got nothing to lose.

I see the snow capped mountains never heard the lie
I watched the dried up fountain, rain just passed it by
It’s time that we talk, is it real or maybe not,
And the years go rolling by and the interest rates are high

Basically Im hungry, basically I need more love.

These shoes don’t fit, I’ve had them on before.
But I squeeze til they’re on because I know what shoes are for.

This waters getting hot, but no one here will move
We wait til the skin peels off and there’s nothing left to prove,
We got nothing to lose.

These shoes don’t fit, I’ve had them on before.
But I squeeze til they’re on because I know what shoes are for.

This waters getting high, but no one here will move

This waters getting high, but no one here will move

but no one here will move no one here will move

 

BOY
Too few letters that were sent,
Too photographs for me to see

Just to know you held your pen, selfish pleasure in my make believe
The nights are way too long, and I’m not strong like you

I cant breathe without you son

My beautiful boy, my beautiful boy, my beautiful, beautiful boy

This house still hold your smell
Your voice still echoes through these walls

I wasnt with you when you fell, I was with you through so many falls
The nights are way too long, and I’m not strong like you

I cant breath without you son

My beautiful boy, my beautiful boy, my beautiful, beautiful boy

My beautiful boy, my beautiful boy, my beautiful, beautiful boy.

 

BROKEN SONGS
I’ve been wronged.  I’ve been wrong Seen truth just come and go
I’ve sang songs, broken songs What’s the reason for the show?
I’m standing at this puzzle, staring. So near that nothing’s clear
Can’t focus on what’s closest to me Gotta soar above these fears

I wanna crawl through this waterfall just to kiss your lips again
I wanna crawl through this waterfall just to touch your skin again

I’ve been proud, talking loud, saying nothing to no one
And silence comes, familiar eyes stare out at me We’ve been here more than once

I’m standing at this puzzle, staring. So near that nothing’s clear
Can’t focus on what’s closest to me Gotta soar above these fears

I wanna crawl through this waterfall just to kiss your lips again
I wanna crawl through this waterfall just to touch your skin again

Look inside, see outside here with youThousand times or maybe more My love is sure

I wanna crawl through this waterfall just to kiss your lips again
just to touch your skin again just to kiss your lips again
just to kiss your lips again just to kiss your lips again

Time, the foolish drum beats not for you.

 

THIS IS NOT AN EXIT

I’ve been feeling kind of foolish
There’s nothing up but sky
and there’s someone making toothpicks for us,

one for every tree that has to die.
And I’ve been feeling so lonely
and a wolf sleeps at my door
they’ve built another car park
cos God knows we don’t need the churches anymore

I’m feeling kind of lonely
No emotions for no one
I’m feeling kind of seasick
We’re stuck now on this journey
and the plan is on the run
this is not an exit

I dreamt of something really
I sank into the mud and grew a head
and a nice man put me on TV
when the audience choose who and when I wed

And I’ve been feeling so lonely and the wolf sits at my door
and they’ve built another car park
God knows we don’t need the churches anymore

I’m feeling kind of lonely
on this journey to nowhere
I’m feeling kind of seasick

Just need someone to hold me all the people turn and stare
You should all just get to know me

I’m feeling kind of lonely no emotion for no one
I’m feeling kind of seasick

We’re stuck now on this journey
but the plan is on the run
this is not an exit until you let it

All is nothing everything is one
dream your dreams and know everything will come

All is nothing everything is one
dream your dreams and know everything will come

all is nothing everything is one
dream your dreams and know everything will come

all is nothing everything is one
dream your dreams and know everything will come.

DRUNK (Cover By World Without Sundays)

If I told you I was drunk. Drunk on your smile,wasted on your eyes and most of your wine

Would you be kind to someone so shy and take advantage of me tonight?

‘ Cause I, I swear I wouldn’t mind. no I, I swear I wouldn’t mind
If I told you I was done acting so cool would you then say “it wasn’t working anyway”

I’m not your type, but that’s alright ‘ cause you’re feeling drunk so I’ll do for tonight
‘ cause I, I swear I wouldn’t mind.  No I, I swear I wouldn’t mind

If I told you I was drunk, drunk on your smile wasted on your eyes and most of your wine
Would you be kind to someone so shy and take advantage of me tonight

 

DOGS WALTZ

I dreamt I was a dog. Running full pell through the long wet grass, enjoying every moment as it came and went, not a second of my existence spent worrying about a future I knew nothing about

I laid panting on some cool concrete and watched the humans busily rushing back and forth, shouting, crying, laughing in a language I didn’t understand, trying to stick to their 5-year plans, buying and selling, hoping their second house investment was a good one, fighting wars for oil, or land, or because their God is a better God, a vengeful God, the only God

And I close my eyes

When I wake, I find a stick, and I busy myself throwing it around, enjoying the stick for all that it is. Then I see another dog, with a better stick, and I think “I might fight him for it”

Maybe I’m evolving?

 

IMAGES

Images rising show us what we got.  Spark the horizon or turn off the sun.

Why do we wait, what games to play today?  What do we make of this sweet gift we take, this beautiful day.

Burning out my heart, we are all we need to start, we are the answers.  The fear is going out my heart, we are all we need to start, we are the answer, we are the answer.

I’m feeling lonely, that’s a choice I make. I let the sky hold me, I’ll dance in the parade.  Where do I go, how do I know this way is right?  Stare by the past.  Better than the last one, we are the light.

Burning out my heart, we are all we need to start, we are the answers.  The fear is going out my heart, we are all we need to start, we are the answer, we are the answer.

Burning out my heart, we are all we need to start, we are the answers.

Burning out my heart, we are all we need to start, we are the answers.  We are the dancers.

 

THE CLOWN

This Ancient Rot
Makes you hold what you’ve got
Makes you hold on tight

Makes you plan for the fight

But you won’t take a hand
You’d rather crash than have help land

And you’re strong as a Bear
But you weep when nobody’s there
You see you’re not in control
Smile and Hope
Hold on, Hold on, Hold on, Hold on

Choosing the love over fear
Knowing the truth is so near
Cheer Up
Hold on, Hold on, Hold on, Hold

Repeat 3 times

Repeat Chorus 4 times.

But the sweetest sound is
When it all comes tumbling down
Can you still sing along
When you don’t know the song
Hold on, Hold on, Hold on, Hold on
Chorus:
Give it up you know just what you’ve got
It’s pulling you down to that hole in the ground
It fills you with fear, It’s all that you hear
As the night takes away, say goodbye to the day that you’ve lost
When you can’t find your feet
Taste the Honey, still as sweet

 

BLESSED EYES

I’ve been sitting here just staring at the moon.  Same moon who watched me walk away from you too soon.

I, I should learn from my mistakes.  And I would do anything it takes.

But have I stayed away too long?  I here to let you know I know I was wrong, But my feet wont move.

There’s too much here to lose. I know you blesses eyes, I cant watch them cry or my heart would break, break, break,.

Oh your blessed eyes, I cant watch them cry or my heart would break, break, break, break.

Time will build a wall, build a wall so high. But I’m breaking out, Ill watch outside the moon go fly by.

And I, I should learn from my mistakes.  And I would do anything it takes. But my feet wont move.

There’s too much here to lose, aww its true. I’m staying here with you!

Oh your blessed eyes, I cant watch them cry or my heart would break, break.

Oh your blessed eyes, I cant watch them cry or my heart would break, break.

Oh your blessed eyes, I cant watch them cry or my heart would break, break.

Oh your blessed eyes, I cant watch them cry or my heart would break.

 

WAITING FOR YOU

I’ll be waiting here for you, you say you don’t want me to, but I’ll be waiting here for you until you do!

I’ll be waiting here for you, you say you don’t want me to, but I’ll be waiting here for you until you do!

This isn’t how I imagined it.  We were so together when we met!  This isn’t how I imagined it, more like Harry and Sally, I thought one day we’d marry, have a love like Romeo and Juliet!

I’ll be waiting here for you, you say you don’t want me to, I’ll be waiting here for you until you do!

I’ll be waiting here for you, you say you don’t want me to, I’ll be waiting here for you until you do!

You said that nothing lasts forever, the only thing that’s sure in life is change.  But I’m sure that we will stay together.  But you changed and its not fair, ‘cause I remained the same!

Its such a beautiful life and you with me.  Its just a beautiful life do you ever miss me?   Cause I’m blue with out you.

I’ll be waiting here for you, you say you don’t want me to, I’ll be waiting here for you until you do!

I’ll be waiting here for you, you say you don’t want me to, I’ll be waiting here for you until you do!

 

 

THROUGH THE TREES

And so I find some peace of mind. I’m still the boy I was.  I answer just because. I wander free.  I still believe its me.

I know I’m fine.  Still in my mind, I’ve fallen so far behind.  I look for a sign. I wander through the trees, I believe it’s real. I’m who I aught to be.  I’m who I aught to be.

 

THE CLIMB

I wanted to climb a tree.  Remember how it felt not caring what people think.  Feel the rough branches on my hands, the wet leaves brushing my face. Watching the ground become a memory, the sky getting closer from the strength of my arms and my legs. The youthful joy pumping through my veins.  Then I get scared I might fall and I cant move and my knee aches quite a bit.

 

FACES CHANGING

Colors changing from green to brown.  Faces changing on the side of town.  But if you need somebody you can hold, I’ll be that man if I may be so bold. Yeah, I’ll be there for you. Yeah, I’ll be there for you.

If you want me to, I’ll be there for you.

When there are no pass you can find through the day, where are no words that hold what to say.  When the pain is digging deep, and no weight just need to drop.  When your sweet eyes need to weep and it all needs to stop. And if need somebody you can hold, Ill be that man if I may be so bold.  Yeah, I’ll be there for you. If you want me to, I’ll be there for you.

Dreams can only help you through the night.  But I’ll be there in the morning when the time is right and we’ll sit and watch the morning light, light.  I’ll be there for you.  Yeah, I’ll be there for you. If you want me to, I’ll be there for you.  If you want me to, I’ll be there for you. If you want me to, I’ll be there for you.

 

 

PLEASE STAY

The loud thoughtless Drunk’s song
Makes me open my eyes
And I watch you breathing
In our bed where you lie

You say we should walk when it calls
Just move on don’t stop, or you’ll fall
Please Stay Please Stay

I pour a coffee, sit down on your chair
This new silence kills me Were you ever there

We were so long together it’s all that I know
I love you so fully  I just can’t let you know

You say we should walk when it calls
Just move on don’t stop, or you’ll fall
Please Stay Please Stay
When the lights seem to dim
When the day wouldn’t let me walk in
I had someone

When the books that you read
Needed sharin’, there was a room and our bed
You had someone We had someone

I knew you, just a kiss as he walked away
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

When the lights seem to dim
When the day wouldn’t let me walk in
I had someone You had someone

Please Stay

 

BLUE SKY PARADISE

Ten million walking with their feet on fire, but it’s not that hot around here.

Children running with ice in their shoes, while a child cries alone with the fear.

Cheap faces shining on the TV tonight, but there’s not a lot of light around here.

6 of 7 numbers I pray to appear, but my God just don’t want to hear.

Ohhhhh and its still goes on, ohhhh and the worlds still turns, its turning and turning and turning around.

Its turning around. Its turning around. Its turning around.

Five was my number and seas have sung, paid all my money, Im done.

Same season blowing through this desert each day.  What happens in this city should stay.

Weak politicians, would lie to your face and lead us all to disgrace.

Two swords swinging some ones lost their head, I want to be left for dead.

Ohhhhh and we know its wrong, ohhhh and it still goes on.

And the world still turns, its turning and turning and turning around.

Its turning around. Its turning around.

Its turning around, its turning around

Its turning around. Its turning around Its turning around.

 

HARBOUR

Wake to recognize these roofs that pierce this sky

I plough this gutter, rains falls on my face

A long day drove me slowly to this place

Walk towards your, walk towards your door.

Walk towards your, walk towards your door.

 

Slip past faces swimming in a life we share

Catch a smile for a moment, love is in the air.

My bag feels heavy, my legs feel old, still dressed for this morning

No wonder I feel, no wonder I feel cold.

Walk towards your, walk towards your door,

Walk towards your, walk towards your door.

 

He who loves a rosy cheek or a coral lip admires

Through starlight eyes he must seek love to maintain his fire.

 

CASCADE

If you can hear me, stay where you are, stay where you are

It’s been a long time to get here

If you can hear me, open your heart, open your heart

It’s been a long time to get here

 

Soon you’ll wake and this spell will break and this lie I lead will break with me

Soon I’ll see you leave, as this life is long, I belong to you

 

If I could say what perfect day

If you can hear me, stay where you are, stay where you are

It’s been a long time to get here.

 

THE LAST GOODBYE – Closing song for the Hobbit

I saw the light fade from the sky, on the wind I heard a sigh

As the snowflakes cover my fallen brothers

I will say this last goodbye

Night is now falling, so ends this day

The road is now calling, and I must away

Over hills and under tree

Through lands where never light has shown

By silver streams that run down to the sea

Under cloud, beneath the stars

Over snow one winters morn

I turn at last to paths that lead me home

And though where the road then tales me,

I cannot tell.

We came all this way, but now comes the day

To bid you farewell

Many places I have been

Mant sorrows I have seen

But I don’t regret nor will I forget all who took that road with me

Night I snow falling, so ends this day

The road is now calling and I must away

Over hill and under tree,

Through lands where never light has shown

By silver stream that run down to the stream

To these memories I will hold,

With your blessing I will go

To turn at last

To the paths that lead home

And though where the road will take me, I cannot tell

We came all thi sway but now comes the day

To bid you farewell

I bid you all a very fond farewell

 

 

STREETS it’s about letting where you grow up define who you are, and how someone special can open you up to possibilities. BB x

A morning sun falls soft at my feet

A morning bird is singing for me

Walking home the slow miles from school

Forgotten days falling ’till I’m a fool

And still you wait for me like the broken dream from the memory of a fool

Sweet eyes see why I love it when you hold me

New love be kind You’re the only one who told me

The streets that I have walked on will always be on my mind

Deep in my past I’m living again

Where boys fought wars on streets they would live as men

Full of all the poster painted on walls

The wall’s so high you knew you would always fall

And still you wait for me like the broken dream from the memory of a fool

Sweet eyes see why I love it when you hold me

New love be kind You’re the only one who told me

The streets that I have walked on will always be on my mind

Ooh what a choice she said Ooh learn to talk she said Ooh you’re a fool she said Ooh take a walk she said

Sweet eyes see why I love it when you hold me

New love be kind You’re the only one who told me

Sweet eyes see why I love it when you hold me

Sweet roaming guy

The streets that I have walked on will always be on my mind

 

 

BOUGH BREAKS – Inspired by the death of his agent and friend

You gave so much to me

You gave so much to me

Twenty-two steps

And then turn left

I take my seat by you

That sudden wealth

Cuts the night in half

And happy days sing true

When days are dark as night

You bring the light and make it simple

You talk

And stories walk

From your past I feel the joy

You arms wide

Youre broke inside

You play the hours like your toy

When days are dark as night

You bring the light and make it simple

And if the bough should break

I’ll hold on to your embrace

Ignoring all the fears below me

And if the bough should break

I’ll see the truth, ignore the lie

Knowing souls can never die

You gave so much to me

Hold on

To your sweet song

Your story plays without a que

Cherished days

Gifted ways

I was blessed to know you

And if the bough should break

I’ll hold on to your embrace

Ignoring all the fears below me

And if the bough should break

I’ll see the truth, ignore the lie

Knowing souls can never die

And if the bough should break

I’ll hold on to your embrace

Denying all the fears below me

And if the bough should break

I’ll see the truth, ignore the lie

I know that souls can never die

You gave so much to me

You gave so much to me

You gave so much to me

You gave so much to me

You gave so much to me

 

WORLD OF THINGS – Written with Robin Williams in mind

If we had your call I think you’d still be here

We weep at the fall

The clown never shows his tears

I don’t know the words

When the story gets so absurd

I do know that love is true

I give you the world of things

I would show you how your smile sings

I don’t believe in superman

But I would love to fly with you

To look at your smile

No one would dare believe

But walking a mile maybe we start to see

I don’t know the words

When the story gets so absurd

I do know that love is true

I give you the world of things

I would show you how your smile sings

I don’t believe in superman

But I would love to fly with you

Heartbreak fills every space

Run fast to hide this face

And we confided all alone

Oooohhhhh

I give you the world of things I would show you how your smile sings

I don’t believe in superman But I would love to fly with you

I give you the world of things

I would show you how your smile sings

I don’t believe in superman

But I would love to fly with you

I give you the world of things

To show you how your smile sings

Don’t believe in superman I would love to fly with you
