For what they didn't say

Mary

Gleaming

These days are not for ever

Drive in my car

Travel this life a long long way

Well my time has come to say goodbye

Everybody wants to know what happened to Jules and Romeo

Can't Pull Away

Sun Is Shining

Sun Shines Through My Window

The Dying Sun

Wake Up Alone

From The World of You and I

Come Take My love

Break of Dawn

The Hound and My Cat

 

 

 

 

 

2004


For what they didn't say

31/07/2004 © Simon Smith


B A7 C G
I look in to your eyes…… The words upon my tongue

B A7 C G
If I said what I was thinking……then our world might be one

B A7 C G
But I can't tell you how I feel…… I can't tell you what's inside

B A7 C G
And history becomes another room to what I hoped inside

B A7 C G

B A7 C G
If I could tell you what I want then maybe you'd be free

B A7 C G
But my fear holds me to, ……….. to this destiny……………….

B A7 C G
How many lives have traded happiness because of words unsaid?

B A7 C G
How many people share their lives… With an empty bed?.....

B A7 C G
For what they didn't say… For what they couldn't say…………….

B A7 C G
I look in to your eyes……… do you want me to speak to you?...

B A7 C G
But I don't want to be the fool…. who lay down in front of you..

B A7 C G
And then you'll turn away………. and you'll laugh at me…..

B A7 C G
How many silences echo through a lonesome destiny?

 

Mary

Earlier version

31 / 07 / 04



Mary sits at the café
Waiting for her friends
She's sitting there
Waiting till the end of the day
Now Mary's gone away


She waits in her house for her husband
She takes herself to bed alone
5 AM in the morning he comes in
And silently slips in to her dreams

Mary sits at the café
Reading her life away
Waiting for the sun to pour in
Waiting for the dreams to stay
At night Mary prays
That life will get better someday
But life doesn't seem to want the games she plays
The dreams betray
Mary don't dream don't dream your life away
Mary don't dream your life away


The sun it shines on Mary
And it dreams that one day she'll run away
The moon it listens to Mary's prayers
And it prays that she'll move away

So Mary take your dreams
Pack your bags and run away
Somewhere your dreams are waiting

Waiting where your heart can play

At night Mary prays
That life will get better someday
But life doesn't seem to want the games she plays
The dreams betray
Mary don't dream don't dream your life away
Mary don't dream your life away


These days are not for ever


These days are not for ever
They will slide in to our history
Like paper on a river
One day they'll float out to sea

These days are gonna float away

Sometimes you'll be here
Taking my heart
Some days you'll feel here
At the start

But come to me
And you'll feel my heart despair
And my breath upon your neck
And my face against your hair

Sometimes you'll feel that the night is dark as ice
And the love we had is all we had to guide us to paradise

The darkest night will come to you
No matter where you hide
It's part of life she says to me
As she takes me inside

But the darkest night
Can be warm inside
Can be warm
For you and I

We live in a world
Where strangers come
And greet us like old friends
They come with gifts that make us feel good
And leave us to defend against the hatred

31 / 07 / 04

 


Drive in my car

9 o'clock get out my shower
Put my blade to my face
9 thirty shut the door
To my place

Drive in my car down to the town
Got no where to go

10 o'clock stop at the bar
Take a drink feel it cool
Standing at the bar
Looking around
For you

Get in to my car
Drive around
Got no where to go

11 o'clock down by the river side
Throwing stones

Get in to my car drive around
Got no where to go

See a girl on the road side
Wave her hair round
Look in to her eyes
Take a drive.


31 / 07 / 04

 

Travel this life a long long way


Travel this life a long long way
I didn't know if I was going stay
But my heart broke a long time ago
And so I just kept on rolling on rolling by

I'm going to see you
Gonna come by
I'm gonna run away out of this life
I'm gonna see you, in the Sun.

I'm gonna run a to your side
When you need me
No matter why
I'm gonna run to your every whim
Your every call
Until I'm …..
I'm gonna see you
Come in
I'm gonna see

31 / 07 / 04

 

Well my time has come to say goodbye

Well my time has come to say goodbye
And I don't want to remember all the times that we tried
But my heart is stalling
And I don't know if you'll be there
But if you choose to will you remember me sometimes when I'm there
Well my tie has been coming and I don't know what to say
But my love has ended and gone away, oh yeah

Well the sun it shines but the time is gone
And I know that I'll forget you when you're gone, oh yeah

But the time has gone and I don't know if I should run
But my love has never begun, oh no

Will you cry when I'm gone,
Will you love will you sing
Well the times are changing
The times they are changing

31 / 07 / 04

 

Gleaming


Well you're gonna, gonna run girl
You're gonna take my heart
All through town you've been talking my name
You've been playing those games
With all the people that I don't like
And I'm gonna take you take you away
Gonna keep my woman
Gonna take my day
Gonna love, love, love
Till you break it away girl

Well the chimney's they are burning smoke
Everybody's coming away
The sky is black and streets are gleaming
Everybody's nowhere to be seen
I'm gonna, gonna run to you
When you don't expect me to
I'm gonna come,
Come a little love on

Gonna come now
Gonna take you away
Gonna run on a run away

31 / 07 / 04

 

Everybody wants to know what happened to Jules and Romeo

Well they ran off together
Across the sea In a boat built for two to
Uruguay / south America
That's the place they wanted to be

Romeo he loved Juliet
And they found a place to be
Took their time as we all do
Now they've got their own family

Everybody's dancing in their place everybody's having fun
Everybody back home wants to run them down and speak of what they done, BUT
Everybody's having fun dancing round to the crack of dawn
Everybody in their place is laughing dancing and having fun

Romeo followed Juliet
Well he used to smoke a cigarette
and he used to strut around
But in time he stepped off the merry-go-round

Romeo and Juliet didn't die like the story says

Sometimes stories have happy endings
Sometimes people live a good life
Sometimes people have lots of children
Sometimes together as husband and wife

Love doesn't have to be
A pain filled tragedy
It's a gamble for everybody
Well R and J they got lucky

So don't feel bad for those who are happy
Don't feel too sad if you are not
Your time will come when it is ready
And it'll come if you're ready or not
Because Love comes once in a while
Sometimes it stays and sometimes not
Sometimes it's there for ever and ever

Did you want them to you be happy? Or did you want them to fade away?

Well they are not fading away, everybody is knocking on their door
Everybody is coming to their house to dance and sing 'till the crack of dawn
So Romeo and Juliet are having a good time by the sea
Singing and dancing with their friends living their lives in harmony

Break Of Dawn

 

Everybody's running around the world

Taking my love away from her

Taking my heart away from me

Gonna keep a long distance destiny

 

I'm gonna run away

Take in a forgotten shore

Out the way on I plan

To unlock your door

 

I don't know why

It'll be you'll come to

I don't know why

It'll be that you'll be loving me

 

Everybody run around

I'm gonna keep that route

Closed at the end of town

 

I don't know where they

I don't care where they go

I'm gonna take my love

Out to New Orleans

 

Everybody running around

Running round on this barren ground

Gonna take my heart

Gonna keep it here

Gonna lock it away for you to fear

I'm gonna ride it around

And sing my song

I'm gonna take that love to Babylon

 

I'm gonna chu-hoo baby

I'm gonna hoo-hoo baby

Keep that sail up way too long

 

..

I'm gonna please, gonna please,

I'm gonna please

Gonna keep my woman

Gonna take her food

 

Till the break of dawn

 

Walked out of your mind

 

 

Didn't you know that everybody's

Waiting at your door

Knocking at midnight

Ringing in the morning

Everybody's waiting for

You to come

 

I know

I can't se you anymore

You are running through this storm

Away

You are running through this storm

Away

You are going that way

This way

In my mind

But

It is oh so difficult to see you

From here

You are going

This way

That way

Everybody wants to know

The dreams that we have left behind

Come Take My love

 

 

The clouds are low across the sky

I can't see you anymore

Sun is blinding my eyes

I don't wanna hear you cal

 

Where do you think

I should really know

Cos I sing the night away

And I sing night today

 

Come take the wave

From the window

Come take the love from me

 

Will you run through the storm?

Way when I get home baby

I know that in the morning

I'm gonna live forever

Gonna take

Gonna see you

Gonna take me up

Love me babe

Be forever

Everyday

 

You don't want me

 

Gonna take me up

Come take the wave from the window

Love me

Be together

Forever and a day

 

You break your promise

Even though you said you were true

You break your promise

Like you said you'd never do

You break your promise

Like the earth is green

You break your promise

And left me here to cry for you

 

Be together

Forever and a day

 

You prefer me out of view

Come take the wave from the window

Come take the love from me

Can't Pull Away

 

In to night with broken dreams

You can make the streams run dry

I can sing to you a golden song

But won't listen won't even try

 

In the night I can hold you

Keep your fear aligned to fright

And though I know it's time to go

It's time to leave you searching for rain

 

Keep me here talking to you

Every moment of sleep

Oh my, I feel you searching

 

Can you tell me where your love has gone

Can you tell me if we'll ever be in each others arms again

Can you tell me if we'll ever be friends, each other's only friends again

Could you over throw the past for us?

 

Without your memory dear enemy

Love will summon you to start

I don't know if I should stay

But I just can not pull away

I can not pull away

 

Will you flee once the door is cast aside

 

Through the night sky I will find you

I will come and call your name

Through the night sky I will blind you

I will come and call your name

 

Can you tell me where we're going

Can you tell me what we'll find

Can you tell me if our love

Is always on your mind

 

Can you tell that you love me

Can you tell me that you heard

Can you tell me if forever is a word

That you wish I'd sing to you

To sing to you

To sing to you

To sing to you

The Hound and My Cat

 

Hound dog

Was playing

With my little cat

One day

So I took

That hound dog

Down the mine shaft

And gave him a good shaft

Up his dog gone arse

Now that hound dog

He don't hound my cat no more

 

(Can't believe I just typed this one up)

***

Sun Is Shining

 

My love please take me out of here

Leave me alone

I had my dreams but my dreams are gone

Life is here to stay

 

Sometimes I've been good

Sometimes I've been cruel

But we've playing ball a long time

I guess I learn the rules

 

Oh Baby take down to

Where you going

Take me too

Love is keeping our hearts true

 

I don't know if you are here

To stay forever no more

I ain't gonna see another day

I'm gonna is all go no more

 

Our love shone long long time

It took me a long long way

But every time I see you more

I get down and I pray

I say

I don't want to be here no more

Baby you know it

I've been a here too long

 

Every time you kiss me

I just wanna, wanna run

Don't you know it in your self?

 

Seconds are ticking

Minutes are shrinking

Everybody's going away

 

Sun is shining

Moon is crying

Everybody's going away

Don't you know it's a shame?

 

 

Sun is shining

Moon is crying

Everybody's saying goodbye

Don't you know it's a shame?

 

Sun is shining

Moon is crying

Everybody's going away

Don't you know it's a shame?

 

Seconds are ticking

Minutes are shrinking

Everybody's going away

Sun Shines Through My Window

 

Sun Shines Through My Windows

Rain pours through my mind

It doesn't matter that you don't love me

It doesn't matter that you don't care

 

Sun Shines Through My Window

Rain pours through my mind

Every time you don't come to me

I just go out of my mind

 

I'm going blind from the sun shine

I'm going blind from the sun shine

The Dying Sun

 

We'll lay in fields when the sun shines bright

Everyone knows that day follows night

And you know

That your love will go

That your love will shine

That your love will take me to the end of time

 

And you know

That the sun doesn't blow

And the wind doesn't shine

On a life that'll go

 

And do you know

And do you sing

And do you play

In the evening sun

 

And the life cries

And do you know

There's always

Always goodbye

 

Do you know

And do you run

And do you hold me

When the day begins

 

Life takes me

And love breaks me

And will you hold me

In the dying sun

Wake Up Alone

 

Guess I'm gonna help you

But I don't know how

Sometime you might need me

Sometimes my heart seems to cling

 

But there is always

Trying to find where you are

Sometimes

Life shines over your shoulder

And guides you to where you are

But there are times

When this love of of love won't know we've gone too far

 

A light shines through the window

You turn to me and smile

You're standing in the headlights

Of a car that goes unkown

 

And when I look back

You'll be gone

The summer shadow shines

A long time after you've gone

 

A long time after you've gone

I'll hear you

A long time after you've gone

I'll hear your words

That I miss you

And though I know it's time

I just don't want

To let time fly

 

Sometimes the pain is easy to bear

Sometimes I feel you everywhere

But it is time

To let go

You surround me

You surround me

There was a time when we had to heal

There's a time when our love goes out to sea

And though I miss you

When rain falls

Those summer shadows and your words they call

Those summer shadows and your words they call

 

I call you now

You turn my way

The sun shines through your hair just like it did that day

But you're not here

It was a dream that won't come true

It's just enough time

To say goodbye to you

And though the sun goes

And the shadows grew so long

What did you do when you found the rain had gone

What did you do with a million birds that had flown away

What was it like to be alone on a sunny day

 

Loves comes in funny ways or so they say

You walk backwards to this house

Walk up the stairs and lay back down by me

As I fall asleep and dream

 

When I wake I feel you

But it's a funny old world

Coz I missed you before

Before you went away

 

Your fingers through my hair

Dance with me up and down

Guide me to the place

Where we cut our way

 

I wake up alone

 

 

2004

 

***

From The World of You and I

 

Baby sing my song

 

Lives all night

 

Baby you know my heart is singing

Over the clouds and far away

Every time you see me call

Doesn't mean I'll go away

 

Doesn't mean the sun is shining

Doesn't mean I hear you're near

Doesn't mean my love will save you

From a night of deepest fear

From a night of oh so clear visions

 

Where are you running to?

Will love come to save you?

Will it take you from the hoard?

And leave you in the hands of the Lord?

 

Will you come and see me crying?

Will you come with a love so pure?

Will you still be holding me tomorrow?

When the night feels oh so dour?

 

Where will your money take you?

Where will religion lead you?

Where will your love forsake you?

From the world of you and I

From the world of you and I

From the world of you and I

 

I've come to live here with you

The stream was flowing here

But our love formed a dam so big

That now there's a stagnant lake of fear

 

Where will your love take you?

Where will the night leave you?

Where will the darkness keep you?

Running safely with the Lord?

 

Running safely with the Lord?
