Words Of Truth Idea 112

 

Tonight falls gently

Tonight calls to you

And me

Tonight falls

 

Purple and blue

Mist around you

 

Our love

Falls upon your heart

Our love

Calls me

 

The history of your dreams

Calls out to me

 

The mystery of your dreams

Lies sleeping by your body

 

The armour of my heart

It flies and cries to you

 

Golden beams across the bay

Twinkle through the night

To greet the day

 

Your hair falls

Your eyes call

And lies upon the dreams

That I fall for

 

Did you come to me with

Words I don't believe

With dreams aimed to

Deceive me

 

Is the word of truth here to stay

Or did the words like dreams

Fall away

 

Or did the word of truth

Fall away

Fall away

 

 

 

Sweet As Time Idea 111

 

You ride past on your bicycle

Waving me goodbye

Don't want to see the sea today

Just want to sit inside

The sun beats upon you

And upon your dreams

Things that I forgot to

Tell you don't seem what they seem

Every time you wave goodbye

I won't bat my eye

Every time you wave at me I don't see the sea

The times are pulling in to today

People stay home

Don't want to play

Every body's pulling

To their love

That died

Every one knows what's coming outside

You fly by in your jet

Part of the jet set

And I just stay at home

Singing songs alone

And you tell me

Your secrets

And I keep them safe

And the time is here

Where I can hear

You outside of my place

The telephone set rings

The birds they sing

The sun beats down upon my life

Of remembering

And your body's layed out on my table

Tanned and wet from the sea

I kiss your stomach

I kiss your thighs

I kiss you where you want me to be

And every time I kiss you

You wave at me

And every time you wave

I feel you move away from me

I feel you move away from me

 

And now you're on all fours

Knocking on my door

I walk to you

I walk the way we walked before

 

And every time you wave

It's like your dream

But it don't seem to be the

Dreams that used to be

 

And every time you call upon my door

I kiss you and I stroke you

As you stand upon all fours

 

I kiss your body this way

I kiss your body that way

But no body come to kiss me

The way we kissed before

 

In the sun your body shines one last time

In the sun your body tastes sweet as time

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've got my mind

 

Got my mind running in circles

Round your feet and your legs

Got my mind running to the time that we met

Every time you see me come

Every time you cry

I've got my mind singing songs

Singing goodbye

Every time you look at me

Makes me come your way

Every time you time you touch me

Makes e want to stray

With your love girl

With your love girl

 

I've got my mind on kissed that you left

At the door

I've got my mind running up your body

And your flaw

I've got my mind on you

And nothing else will do

I've got my mind

Singing sweetly

Twisted thoughts of you

 

I've got my kisses softly touching the corner of your mouth

I've got your eyes looking at mine

Got you when you're just about to shout

You come to me and I'm filled with desires for you

I've got my mind singing thoughts of what I want to do

 

If you come to me

Come to me

You've got my mind

Singing thoughts of how we used to be

Will you gently roll around

My mind

Will you come to me

Will you hold me to this time

Pin me to your mind

Let me dream of you

Feel you wrapped around me til it's the end of me and you

I've got my mind singing thoughts

Got them forgetting you

Got them getting you

Begetting you

Begetting

Be getting you.

 

The Chemistry Of Tears

The rhythm of the seasons call

Upon the shadows on my wall

 

As I wait for the phone to ring

I feel the thoughts hurting

 

But the times they come to me are sharing tears

And the time we visited Galilee last year

And the sun it calls over prison walls

And the time you loved me

Will recall what I first saw and

This is the geology of our love

A fault line through my heart

And the shingle of your tears

Resounds to me for a million years

 

I wave at you across the canyon

You shoot a starry look at me

And say that this was a place

Where once they'd been a sea

And on dry land star fish come to me

 

But the times they come to me are tearing tears

And the time we visited Galilee last year

The bullet it landed here and made a mark upon the wall

This where the body came to fall

 

Instrumental

 

This is the time of my life

And this is a photo where

You once were my wife

This is the weapon

This is the song

This is the reason why it went wrong

And this is the chemistry of

This is the biology

This is the psychology of goodbye

The Place Where The People Meet – Idea 108

Welcome to my humble house, friend

This is a where I choose to live

Cigarettes are left outside

Shoes can be worn

Magazines lay unread and un-torn

 

Welcome to the town I live in

It's been a sunny here for years

But there's a lake outside of town

Which the locals fill it with their fears

 

And the waves they're a crashing on our front doors

But we don't care ‘cause we're tall

And the storm it comes and goes every year

And I don't know which way to run

 

So lay across my bed my sweet one

I will stroke you ‘til you sleep

And as you dream I'll take your tears

And your fears

To the lake where the locals meet

Where the locals meet

Where the locals sleep

 

Mid 8

 

So welcome to my house

This is the place that I was born

This is the place where magazines go un-torn

And unread

Lay across my bed

The animals are happy and are fed

 

So this is the town where I come from

The lights go out at midnight

So if you're out and about

It's hard to find your way home

And so alone

 

And this is the place where my fears grow stronger

With every candle that I light

And this is the place where I live, longer

If I go to bed at night

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So lay across my bed my sweet one

I will stroke you ‘til you sleep

And as you dream I'll take your tears

And your fears

To the lake where the locals meet

Where the locals weep

Where the locals sleep

That's where you're weak

That's where we're in deep

With the secrets I keep

 

 

 

 

So this is where my dreams come to

I leave them here for you

And when I'm long gone

You'll listen to my song

And you'll know my dream was true

And you'll know my dream was for you

And you'll know my dream came true

And you'll listen to my songs all night long

And you'll know I wasn't always wrong

Well These Times They've Changed Me Idea 107

 

Well these times they've changed me

Used to feel happy

Now I wake up down

And you say my face does frown

Everybody I'm not like I used to be

The way you want me to be

Well this lady she's changed me

I used to be care-free

But now I'm down

Now I walk around with a frown

And I'm no longer the way I used to be

 

But now those times have changed

And re-arranged my personal diary

And the times have changed me

Don't want to be

 

And I want to run

And I want to fly

And I want to kiss your ass good-bye

And I want to drive

Around and around

And get to meet you in the town

 

Well the flights flicker in the distance

The storm is coming so they say

I walk along the streets

Paved in the prayers you told me

Now it's just not the way it used to be

And the time it changes me

And I don't want it to drift upon me

So slowly it passes over me

To change me

To change me

 

 

 

 

The Sky Is Falling For You Idea 106

 

I saw you at the window

Dancing real slow

Couldn't see me

Down below

Night is falling

My heart's calling

Night is calling

And my heart is falling for you

 

You didn't see me

Waiting by the phone

You didn't see me reading

At night alone

 

But the sky is falling

And my heart is calling

And the night is falling for you

 

You didn't see me

Walking away

You didn't see me

Trying to play

I was falling

You weren't calling

And the night is falling away

And the night is falling away

 

 

 

 

 

You Never Where The Journey Goes

 

 

You never where the journey goes

You follow your map

Follow your nose

You write down the route

And go your way

But one day you'll come to see

What I say

 

You follow your dreams

And they break your heart

You often end up at the place you start

 

You follow your nose and you follow your dreams

You always return to the places you've been

And you fly away and you cry to me

And you take your dreams and throw them away

You let yourself flow

Let your dreams go

Let the night take you

Let the day break you

You don't know where

The tears will come to be shed

You go on about

What's right and what's fair

You want to know if my love cares

You want to know of my secret affairs

You want to feel me in the death of night

You want to know what's good and right

And I said be clever before being right

And watch me fade in to the night

And watch your love fade in the light

And watch your dreams break at the end of the night

The Honeymoon Is Over

 

 

Well the honeymoon is over

As you look me in my eye

I want to hold you still

Want to feel you

Want to feel your kiss goodbye

But the times have changed

And you want me re-arranged

And you want me to take your love away

And you want me to stay

 

Well the honeymoon is over

And you want me to go

I say “Do you love me baby?”

And you whisper you don't know

 

But the times have changed

And our love is re-arranged

And I'm sitting there 1000 miles away

And I don't know if you want me

To go or stay

But the honeymoon is over today

 

Well the little things you did and said

They just slipped off my bed

Now you lay along way from me

And I can't even get to see

The look on your face

Can't see you no more

And the honeymoon is over today

 

I used to be swimming about

But the only romance

Is what you make me watch on TV

And the you're wishing it was

Over to me

And you wonder

If I'll ever get back

To who you dreamed I'd be

 

 

 

 

 

I've Got Nothing to Say

But I don't want hear

The words of your play

The things you fear

 

I've Got Nothing to Say

But I don't want hear

 

I've Got Nothing to Say

No where to go

Nothing to tell you

No body to know

 

I've Got Nothing to Say

But plenty to see

I got plenty to feel

I don't know what's real

 

I've Got Nothing to Say

But plenty to hear

I don't want hear your words

Don't want to feel your fear

 

I've Got Nothing to Say

Nowhere to hide

Nothing to do

 

I've Got Nothing to Say

But plenty to feel

I've Got Nothing to Say

But nobody's here

 

I've got plenty to do

But I'm unable to move

 

I've got plenty to say

 

I've got plenty to do

And nothing to say

I've got plenty to do

Got plenty to go away with

 

I've got plenty to do

But nothing to feel

I've got plenty to dream

Cos nothing seems real

I've got plenty to say

But no one to see

I've got plenty to love

But I don't love me

 

Don't love me

 

 

Keep My Love Girl

Well keep my life girl

Run away

Take my thoughts and watch them play

You tell my love song to all you meet

You walk away

Upon my feet

You Keep my love girl

And you run away

You keep a flying on another day

Light comes through my window

It's like any other day

But it's a time that I will never

Feel again this way

You keep my love girl

You run away

You keep my love girl

And it's how you wanna play

And if it's true

That it's the last day

Then I'd like to feel you

Feel you come my way

And you take your heart girl

And you run away

Say don't do it

Don't want to be blue

You keep my love girl

And you wanna play

You keep my love girl

And you're gonna play

She swam in cold water

To free her soul

But all she found was a great big hole

You take my heart and it's made of clay

And you walk upon feet of desperate days

You keep my love girl

And you wanna play

Take my life and get away

But I did your dirty work

And I did it well

I can see everything now

And no one can tell

Well the truth will tell

Well it's the truth to tell

Well it's the truth to tell

You keep my love girl

And you run away

Keep flying on another day

Well I did your dirty work

And I did it well

No one can see who did it

No one can tell

You keep my love girl

And you run away

You keep my love girl

And it's how you want to play

And if it's true

That it's the last day

Then I'd like to feel you

Like to feel you come my way

 

You keep my love girl

And you run away

You keep my love girl

And it's how you want to play

Today

Is

The

Day

 

 

 

 

Did You Roll The Ball

 

 

 

In Handcuffs You Are Laughing

In handcuffs you're laughing as they take you away

Good luck to you on this sunny day

Didn't know that

That was the way you wanted to go

Didn't know

How you like to run the show

 

You're talking dirty

And you're talking mean

You killed the king

And you hid the queen

Take me to the place

Where you run away

Take me there

Until the dark day comes

 

Well you wash away the tears

And you install my fears

And you like to keep me where

You want me to stay

 

But I'm here

And I'm full of fear

And I don't know

If you'll come to take me

 

But I'm lying in fear

And I'm waiting here

And I'm staying in this place

Of “life-fear”

 

You don't know

And you doubt you'll come today

And I see you laughing at me

And I'm holding your memory clear

And I'm laughing too

At the paradox of light

 

 

Did You Roll The Ball

Well I met a girl and I didn't know the way

Summertime was when you were going to stay

Didn't know why, it wouldn't work, but I still had to pay

 

When you walk through the first door baby

And you talk of love

You knew you'd take my heart today

 

Did you come

Did you a run

Did you see me all alone

Did you play the part so well

Did you fall

Did you call me

Did you fall

Did you roll a ball

Did you see me

Did you fall.

 

I won't Say Goodbye

 

Come and sing

My heart feels everything

If you feel like crying

Don't hold back

Let go

Every time you see me

I don't if I'm real

Don't if I feel

Don't know if I love you

Don't know if my heart's crying

Don't know if it's time to die

Don't know if you're gonna come

Leave my heart to cry

Every time you walk my way

Every time you come to me

Every time you lift my heart

It's the start of dying

It's the start of my denying

It's the start of you and me

It's the start of a life that's free

It's the start of every thing

Kiss my heart and say goodbye

Don't care for the where or why

Don't care if I have to try

Every time you say goodbye

Now

Go away and go away

Go away and go away

Go away and go away

I can feel you

Go away

Go away and go away

Go away and go away

Every time you hold me close

It's goodbye and say goodbye

I won't try to say

Goodbye

Go away and go away

Go away and go away

So every time you hold me close

Go away and go away

So every time you hold me close

Every time you hold me close

I won't say goodbye

Every time you hold me close

I won't say goodbye
