In The Middle Of The Night

 

 

I'm watching the storm on my TV

Look out the window at the rain

I see you smiling in the puddles of the sky

Don't know why you go,

Don't know why you go,

 

Lights are flashing

The wind is blowing

And the rain comes down

Trains go by and cars drown out the sound

 

Planes are flying high

Gonna touch the sky one day

Gonna take it all away

Gonna know you're waiting there

Upon a wing

Upon a prayer

 

In the middle of the night I drive away

Drive along gonna take away today

Gonna love you and keep my love today

Gonna take my life, gonna take it away

 

I don't know I can't see

But your love is in the wind

Like a bird that's home to stay

I can feel you here next to me

A thousand miles away

A thousand miles away

 

Standing in a phone box

Singing tales of woe

Exchange your money

For the things that you don't know

Forces come and go

‘til my love goes somewhere

I'll pretend that I don't care

Memories of love are everywhere

 

In the middle of the night I drive away

Drive along gonna take away today

Gonna love you and keep my love today

Gonna take my life, gonna take it away

 

In the middle of the night I'm with you

In the middle of the night I need you

In the middle of the night I'm loving you

In the middle of the night I'm with you

 

Forces come and go

‘til my love goes somewhere

I'll pretend that I don't care

Memories of love are everywhere

 

In the middle of your breath I'll kiss you

In the middle of our dance we speak a truth

In the middle of journeys that make us stay

In the middle of a crisis peace be with me

 

In the middle of the night,

In the middle of the night

In the middle of our life,

In the middle of our life

In the middle of the night,

In the middle of our love

In the middle of our love

Love On The TV Edit 9

 

Look out a long way to sea

People on a boat lookin' back at me

I'm sitting quietly watching the world go by

Don't you see me cry

Don't you see me

 

I'm watching the trees grow

Watching the peace blow by

I'm watching people dancing

Walking hand in hand - no cry

 

And if you knew the things we did

Then maybe you'd come to see

But our love is something

You'll never find on the TV

 

I'm watching the history of our love on TV

Rewind to the part where you say you love me

 

But our love was a story that could make a film

On A TV coming soon to you

But you'd never know if it was real

If it was ever true

 

I'm looking out the window

Our words fall from the sky

The letters of our love

Are scattered far and wide

But our love was a story that could make a film

On A TV coming soon to you

But you'd never know if it was real

If it was ever true

 

If it was ever true

If it was ever true

If it was ever true

 

But if you knew the things we did

Then maybe you'd come to see

But our love is something

You'll never find on the TV

 

Flying by on TV

Flying by on TV

Flying by on TV

You and Me

 

I'm happy now

You're sleeping here

This love is pure

 

You come to me

And go away

Play songs of love

From yesterday

Lovers kiss eternally

That's the way it's

Meant to be

 

Everybody learns by heart

How the love is gonna start

It's gonna be

You and me

Everybody wants

You and me – come with me –

You and me

 

Keep my love

Don't take away

I know I'm gonna stay

And run away

Fled by me

Keep today

In my love – oh no no

 

Every time you go away

My love will come

And say no more to you

Kiss the blue

Start to lose

Je t'accuse

 

And you make my heart sing

Of dreams where truth is something

 

If our love is meant to be

Then it's something that we'll see

If this dream is going to live

Then we'll have to learn to give

 

Every time you go away

My love'll call another day

And every time you see my heart

Gonna take us to the start

 

Everybody take my hand

Everybody understand

Everybody laughin' with me

Everybody come to me

 

In time we'll be fine

Walk away my love

With you

 

Every time you go away

My love'll call another day

And every time you cry no more

Gonna open up a door

 

Every time you go away

My heart it says

It gonna stay like

Everybody who loved me

Is gonna see

If it's you

And I am me

 

Well you're gonna take me

Forsake me for a lie

My love is true

Dressed in blue

Start to lose

Je t'accuse

 

And you make my heart sing

Of dreams where truth is something

 

If our love is meant to be

Then it's something that we'll see

If this dream is going to live

Then we'll have to learn to give

If we're gonna live at all

We're gonna have to risk a fall

Now here's my number

And here's the ball

Speak the truth

Now make the call

 

Every time you leave

Your heart calls

Through doors n walls

Fate may choose

That we should lose

I'll kiss the blues

Je t'accuse

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 Locals 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

 

Round And Round / Persuading You

 

I'm riding the wheel

Going round and round

Listening to the same sound

And it's going round

I'm watching you spin

I'm feeling everything

It's hard to know

If it's time to

Stay or go

 

Persuading you persuading me

Persuading you persuading me

 

Watching the wheel turn

Watching the sun burn

Watching the telephone

And I'm waiting for your return

My love is shining through

You don't know what to do

But I feel your love for me is

 

Persuading you persuading me

Persuading you persuading me

 

My advice to you is hope my words are true

My advice to you is keep my trust in you

My advice to you is gonna keep me for you

My advice to you is

 

Persuading you persuading me

Persuading you persuading me

 

Persuading you persuading me

Persuading you persuading you

 

Feel your key turn

Feel the sun burn

Feel the telephone

As I yearn for return

But words ain't coming through

I don't know what is true

But I can't feel you

 

Like they used to

Feeling you no more

Listening to the film score

A song that says no more

 

 

Lifting the bridal veil

A thief in a bridal gown

 

Watching the sun burn

Watching the telephone

And I'm waiting for your return

My love is shining through

You don't know what to do

But I feel your love me is

 

 

Go around with somebody else

You can leave me here to stay

And I'll pay my way

If you're going round and round

Then you may as well dance with me

Cos this is the place where we can be

Going round

 

Persuading you

Persuading me

 

And the way you say

You can't come back to day

Well I've heard you say the same

To everyone of you blame

Beneath this golden sun

Our love will be lost or won

 

Persuading you

Persuading me

 

Well my life goes round and round

Spinning dances to the same old sound

 

If you see me walk away

Then come back another day

If you see me walk to you

Then you'll know just what to do

If you see me run this way

Then you better to me too

If you hear me sing this way

Then I hope you'll sing with me.

 

If you feel I'm tied to you

Then I guess our words are true

If I sing to you

Then you better hope my words are true

If I come your way

Then you better hope I'll stay

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

Walk away girl

Upon my feet

You keep my love girl and

You run away

You keep them flying on a sunny day

Light comes through my window

It's like any other day

But it's a time that I will

Never feel this way

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

Come my way

And you'll 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

Want to play

You keep my love girl and

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 a desperate day

You keep my love girl and

Wanna play

Take my heart then walk away

 

But I did your dirty work and I did it well

I can see everything go, 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

Run away

You keep them flying on a sunny 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

And 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

Feel you come my way

 

You keep my love girl

And you

Want to play

You keep my love girl

And you

Want to play

Today

Wait and Wait edit 6

 

Going to wait and wait, wait and wait for you

I'm gonna to wait and wait, wait and wait for you

A room with a view

Funny what time did to you

Dance some thoughts round your place

Sunshine on your face

Take off your threadbare clothes

And show me your lace

The wind blows to cue

And I hold your hand and say I love you

The truth is funny how it times your love to go

The truth is funny how it wants you to know

Love is like trees growing out of the sea

I'm gonna to wait and wait, wait and wait for you

The truth is funny how it times your love to go

The truth is funny how it wants you to know

 

And your love is coming to me out of the night

Holding me tight

Singing my songs

Knowing if it was or wasn't wrong

Didn't you know if things are right

They're kept out of sight

Didn't you know the way they tell you love is blind

Didn't they know the things you hear have to be signed

Love is restless

Love is pure

Love is dirty when you're not sure

Love is jealous when you are blind

To the truth of what's behind

Don't you know the things we said

Can leave you lying dead

Don't you know the things you do

Can take the life from me and you

And you're walking hand in hand

Through nights of red and gold

And you're walking to the end of the film

Where we grow old

 

Can see a long way out to sea today

And the clouds are spreading slowly across the sky

You keep my heart

And your love it smiles

And whistles all the while

And takes me a long way long way long

It takes my heart

Take my heart

Don't take my heart to bed

Gonna say

Take my love

It Gone away

Gonna see that

Love it's gone

Gone

Gone away

Gone away

Going to wait and wait, wait and wait for

I'm gonna wait and wait, wait and wait for you

I'm gonna love, love you for you

I'm gonna wait and wait, wait and wait for you

I'm gonna wait and wait, wait and wait for you

I'm gonna wait and wait, wait and wait for you

I'm gonna wait and wait, wait and wait for you

Jam With David 25th June 2009

 

 

All the songs are over and the words have been said

The sun grows tired as it falls on your bed

The sweet thing we had has gone

You ask me if something is wrong

 

And rightly said you take me down

And rightly said thank me for the time

 

The cars go by and I wonder why you say this to me

I don't know what you're talking about so it's pointless you see

I just flow with you I just know what to do

Watch the birds fly in a sky of grey and blue

 

Well the time has come and they say it's time to go

And rightly said the rain comes down upon our summer show

I see the shadow of birds flying round me

And I know my time has come

 

I lay down and watch the camera follow me

Taking my image to a place I'll never see

And I know the time is coming

I know my life will go

And I know the things you write

And I know you have to know

 

Sitting in the sun with your glasses on and you're looking so good

But there's something inside me that knows that you shouldn't but you could

 

The waves of love that break on the lies I heard from you

You hold your hands up but there's nothing I can do

Flow from my heart and drive away

Come back a long time later, don't come back today

 

Leave your number on my telephone

Leave your voice upon the days I'll never own

And it's time to go home

It's time to go home

Leave me alone

Now it's time to go home.

 

For Neda Agha-Soltan

 

 

Destination Destiny

 

You call to me

Your words unsaid

Lying softly

‘Tween the sheets of our bed

 

I keep my love for you

But I know we won't come through

I cross my heart

While you make me pray

 

But the love you feel

I can feel it too

I know we're gonna

Give a going to

Gonna Fly

Gonna go away forever

To find a heart of gold

You'll find your strength in me

Gonna Fly

 

 

You lay in front of me a long time

Gonna cycle up a hill

Gonna fly on down

Gonna take away the night

Gonna live a good life

Come to me

Come to me

 

 

I remember the time when we first met

A chance encounter

You may care to forget

You loved forever with all your heart

From the start you knew you'd love until you die

Come to me

And I will show you a way to fly

 

 

 

Gonna Fly

Gonna feel my life away

Gonna see the love today

Gonna feel that I'm alone

Gonna cross my heart and pray

Gonna Fly

Please be mine

Please be mine

 

Solo

 

Our time has come

And now it's gone

Our aim was true but the stars were wrong

This Destination was destiny led

Now I've learned the words you whispered

Were dreams upon our bed

 

Because I know the lies you told me

Were lies you told yourself

But I ain't here to drift along

Can't fill this hole with wealth

 

Gonna see you in the dark

Gonna feel you in the night

Gonna take my love for you

And choose to fly or fight

Gonna check my memory

Gonna see if love was right

Gonna Fly

The rain comes down

The sun it shines

Gonna Fly

Rainbows are travelling

Around my mind

Gonna live without your love

For evermore

 

19/12/2009

 

 

There are two alternative versions of this, a cut down one (version 7)
and the original unedited version (version 4).

I still have to re-record the vocals on this track.

 

 

 

 

On The Side Of Many Trees Idea 120

 

I've been this way before

Been through these hills

I've seen the maps

And I've taken the pills

 

I've read the words

That you sent to me

I carved them out

On the side of many trees

 

And you tell me that it's time to go

And you don't know if you know

And you walk the darkest way

And you dance away that way

And you want to play this song

But you want to go

You don't know if you know

And it's time for me to show the way

Gonna run today

Gonna take my life away

Gonna run to you

But I find you're gone

And the road goes on

 

I'm not sure if you

Meant it to be this way

I'm not sure if you're sure

It'll stay this way

 

But the time has gone away

I watch you walk away

The sun sets

On this long and lonely day

 

Dot to dot across the stars Idea 121

 

 

Well the world's going by past my window

Don't know where you are girl

Nothing I want to know

Everybody's looking in at me

So I smile at them

Sun is shining on the TV

So are my friends

And the sun falls down on my window

And lights softly come to be

I draw upon the night sky

Dot to dot across the stars

Romantic pictures of me and you

 

And the love you took

Has now safely arrived

And the photos that I took

Are coming alive

But the tears that fell

Have made their way to the sea

And the way we used to be is not how it's going to be

Our love was found so it we buried it underground

In time this in this world

I know that it'll be found

If you see me here

Then I guess one day I'll be there

And if you see me here then I guess

One day I maybe there

 

The moon is brightly lit in the night sky

I mean the light sky

The moon is lit and I think I know why

But other times are coming

So I'd better walk away

And if I find you here

Then maybe I'll stay

 

Turns that make me blind Idea 121b

 

 

Running past my window and you look at me

Everybody's smiling at the way we used to be

But the trouble is that time has moved on

And you have gone

And I smile at empty spaces

Where our love used to be

 

And the moon's in the sky

And I don't know why

Because the sun still shines

But I guess this road has taken

Turns that make me blind

 

And our love will go and I can't say anything to you

And anything I do will be misconstrued

But at the chance of finding ways to be free

I lay my gifts upon your feet and stories

And you know the way has gone

I don't like the way you hear my song

I don't care if sounds like you used to be

Cos there once was me

There used to be you and me

 

Well I'm spreading my wings and flying high

Look down below from my moon in the sunny sky

See you walk alone past my window looking in

Called you but you can't hear a thing

 

But my love it travels through the times

I know one day you'll find it there

In the corner of your mind

Somewhere you left it behind

In the corner of your mind

Somewhere you left it behind

 

Round And Round Original Idea 122

 

Riding the wheel going round

Listening to the same sound going round

I'm watching it spin I'm thinking about everything

I need to know if it's time to stay or go

 

Watching the wheel turn

Watching the sun turn

I'm watching the telephone

And I wait for your return

 

And my love is shining through

And you don't know what to do

And I'm going to take you

And I know you're going to go now

 

 

In The Lovely Night Idea 123

 

In the lovely night I saw your eyes call to me

Take me dancing and you set me free

And your love came to me

Through stormy nights

Took my hand and stole the light

But your love has gone and you want my song for you

And you love the song but my heart is untrue

And the crowds throw confetti upon the whispered words you said

But now all remains is an empty bed

And the sun it shines upon the sheets upon which you lay

And upon the promises we made

But your love has gone away and time stands still

And the cars drive by at will

And the confetti is strewn along the street

And the place where once I placed a kiss upon your feet

 

They assured me from the glass doors that you ran through

They assured me from a place that I thought true

And there's no safe place for me to run

And there's no safe place for me to find where our love begun

That's where the sickly maestro said you would become

And the love we had I no longer know

And the low lies low on the streets below

 

 

A Witness To Everything Idea 124

 

 

You dance through doorways with a smile on your face

You ingratiate yourself to everyone in the place

And after you're done

You pull out your

You take the rings first

Then you take everything

Then you walk upstairs

And tell of your affairs

Lying naked underneath the chairs

Then you write upon the wall

“Love will conquer all”

And you think about a cigarette

 

Then you dress as a maid

And steal from your victim's grave

You lie upon the ground and smoke your cigarette

Then you smile at the pain you breed

Then you poison everyone

And you have so much fun

Then you concede

The articles you read

That tell of your misadventure

Then you conceive

Everything you read is

Everything you'll ever need

And the plot thickens with everyone you kill

Till eventually you've had your fill

And you walk around

Upon hallowed ground

And you look for adventure

But I am gone

With the words of this song

A witness to everything

That was wrong

 

 

The Unsympathetic Song Idea 125

 

 

All you people who've had it tough

I've had enough of your tears and fears and the way you like to spin on

All you people who've had it tough

I'd like to make it clear I've had enough of your fear

It's time for you to move on

Stop spreading your poison amongst us

Start to grow

Let yourself be happy

You know you could be

Read the books that'll help you

Look for the truth

Understand that you are trying to use me

Abuse me

All you people who come my way

I'd like to say

It's time for you to learn to play

Stop playing with my heart

Start a life that could be yours

Keep out of closed doors

Open your heart

The way that your love runs to me

Cos I'm gonna tell you now

That your heart is in the ground

And your love is spilling down

You want to die

You want to cry

Rainy days without you here is a thing that we don't fear

And I want to feel you close

I want to know you most

And I don't know why you want to run

When there's so much time for fun

And all you people who want to laugh

There's always room for you to pass

And all you people who run

Spinning the web you spun

It's time to come

And let your love in

Let your love begin

Let everybody try to love you

Let everyone connect with you

All you people who want to run

All you victims who've had it done

It's time to forgive and understand

That all those people who did what they did

Were victims too

Spitting it out on you

 

All you people who want to run it's time to see the spells you spun

Just one on one, doing what was done

And the only way out is forgiveness and understanding

And all you people who want to cry

And all you people who want to die

You can choose to be happy

You can choose to be friendly

You can choose to love me

You can choose to be true

You can choose not to be blue

It's up to you

 

Well The Secrets You Keep Idea 126

 

Well the secrets you keep

They don't tell me well

And the lies I like to tell you

Are taking us to hell

 

And if you know my way

Then you'll bring my heart to bear

And if you don't know my way

I guess you don't care

 

But the people you're in with are lying to your soul

I don't know and I don't see you anymore

But a click on the window and you see me crying

And I take you down a lighter way

 

And every time you see me come and go

I can take you any day

Love it says it conquers all but I don't really know

Cos you turn that switch on and off

And I feel my fall

 

But the tears they cry in the night

But you don't care if they fall

And you don't know if it's there for me to see you

In the cold light

 

The calling light that's at night

That's the time it comes alive

But my heart is calling you every time you fall

I don't know, I can't go, I can't sing to you

 

I can't sing to you

I can't sing

Anymore, anymore,

Every Time You Walk Away Idea 127

 

 

These are the words from a jam session with Steve Dumelow which though very confused formed the main building blocks for the song “You And Me” listed above.

 

Every time you walk away

My love comes

You know what's going to go

Here they come

Going high

Going there

Gonna lie down away here today

Everybody sings with me

Everybody loves away

Cry now

 

Beware

The time is coming the time is leaving

Everybody knows just how to play

How to pray

 

Away today

Go to sea today

Every body loves the way you call

When you fall

 

And love can come and love can go

And every time you see me come

I can't pay your hearts desire

And I know what will happen tonight

Cos every time you go away

I can sing love keeps coming to me

Walk away

You play the day

You're gonna come

You play the gun

And I know just what way to go

But you don't know

Every time you come to me

I know that treason will be free

Betrayed by me

Every time you walk away

My love will pay with someone else's heart

You know that I can see you walk away

With everything

And every time you go away

My love can come

And say no more to you

Kiss the blues

Start to use

Je t'accuse

We're going to lose our way

 

Wait And Wait Original Idea 130

 

The following lyrics were ad-libbed in a jam session with Steve Dumelow. Nearly al the lyrics, vocal melodies and music formed the basis of “Wait And Wait” above.

 

A room with a view

Funny what time did to you

Dance some thoughts round your place

Sunshine on your face

Take off your threadbare clothes

And show me your lace

The wind blows to cue

And I hold your hand and say I love you

The truth is funny how it times your love to go

The truth is funny how it wants you to know

Love is like trees growing out of the sea

One bad storm and

It's the end of you and me

And you know the time is coming

And you know the job ain't done

And you look at me through broken eyes

That looked in to the sun

Everybody's twisting round

Waving their hands to the ground

And your love is cooling me

And your love is fooling me

And your love is coming to me out of the night

Holding me tight

Singing my songs

Knowing if it was or wasn't wrong

Didn't you know if things are right

They'll be kept out of sight

Didn't you know the way they tell you love is blind

Didn't they know the things you hear have to be signed

And the wind it blows right on cue

And the love we hold is not for me and you

And I watch you walk away through times of golden sun

And I watch you sail away when I know the job ain't done

But your love is fading

High and low thoughts in my mind

Gonna take you here

Take you there

And never gonna leave you behind

Love is restless

Love is pure

Love is dirty when you're not sure

Love is jealous when you are blind

To the truth of what's behind

Don't you know the things we said

Can leave you lying dead

Don't you know the things you do

Can take the life from me and you

And you're walking hand in hand

Through nights of red and gold

And you're walking to the end of the film

Where we grow old

 

 

 

Wait And Wait Original Second Part Idea 131

 

 

Can see a long way out to sea today

The waves wash upon my love

The wind it blows warm on my face in this place where you and I stood

And the clouds are spreading slowly across the sky

Look out my window and I see the pace where you cry

Didn't know our love was dying

And didn't know you would go

But my love is here

And somewhere our show goes on

Slow boat to loving and

You keep my heart

Couldn't tell which way was out

But I now see we had to part

And your love it smiles

And whistles all the while

And takes me a long way long way long

Get on your knees and beg me to forgive your ways

Get on your knees and let me watch you play

I'll fight for my imaginary friend if you fight for yours

And when you're ready

I'll balance on the floor

Kiss me, own me, love me,

Take away the smile

And in Connecticut

I'll let you run wild

You driving miles and miles

Across the sea

But I won't be there for you

And you won't be there for me

And it's time to roll away the stone and wish I was alone

It's time to hold everybody

Know which way to go

Take my heart

Take my heart

Take my heart

Every body wants a part

Dance with me

Dance with me

Drink and lay

And dance and die with me

Push backwards against me

Push your breasts against me

And feel my heart a coming out to love you

Gonna take my heart today

Go to bed

Gonna say

Gonna take my love away

Gonna see that love has gone

Gone, gone away

Gone away

Gonna see my heart and gonna part

Gonna take my love

Gonna way

Gonna dream

And everybody dreams

Which way you gonna have me

You gonna walk away

Walk away

 

Wait and Wait third Part Idea133

 

It's only the very last lines that were put to any use, but they became the basis of the chorus in “Wait and Wait”

 

So you're kissing the blues

You're kissing my heart away

Take my love today

You're kissing my sunshine

And I know you're going to stay

But love is sad

Your love is blue

So they tell me it's a long way to the places I was with you

The kisses of my heart are a long time going blue

You crossing my love away and I know it's time for you

And you're taking my heart

Out to the sea

Long time you're coming

Now you're saying goodbye to me

Well kissing my heart

Keep them

Walk away

Long time

Long time

Mister

Gonna break my heart today

And you died your hair

And your die rolled everywhere

But your love was a risk

That would end in my despair

Gonna keep my love

Keep it there

Keep my heart

Every way

Keep my heart

Gonna take my love today

Gonna take my love

Come

Gonna watch you walk

Don't run

Gonna watch you grow and die

Watch you laugh and sigh and cry

On a body that comes and goes

My love ain't coming

My love it may come and go

Take my heart and run away

Keep my love

It's gonna stay

And everybody wants you too

And everybody loves you too

Gonna Wait and Wait

Wait and wait

Wait and wait for you

Gonna love and love for you

Gonna wait and wait for you

 

Gonna take my turn

Then I'll go to you

 

 

I Am Gonna Leave You Idea 134

 

Walk along the beach hand in hand but out of reach

I heard your words, wrote them down, then used them for a speech

The way you said it and the way you moved your hips

Made me want you, made me love you, made me see right through you

 

And you're walking hand in hand and you're wondering if he's the right man

Change him for another and you'll see it's just your pattern

Take me down to sunshine world where you'll do your loving talk

Gonna see the way you fly, gonna kiss your love goodbye and oh no

 

It's your drama and it's your talk, it's the way you have to walk

It's the way you're gonna dance, it's the way you're gonna sing

And I tell you now

It's just the way and how

That things are now

 

Walk down the beach and tell me you love me

Wake up in the morning and say you care

I reach out to you but you turn away, you'll be walking by

Don't you know the things you do repeat every crime

 

If it's not me it's you

If it's me it's gonna be

If it's the way we dance

Take the lead or take the chance

And I gonna leave you

And you're gonna stay

And you, you're gonna leave me

And I am going to play your way today

 

Gonna run along way baby

Gonna take my heart

Gonna see that everybody

Knows just where to start

 

But the chance you take is the chance you make

And it doesn't matter who you choose cos it's the same thing anyway

 

But I gonna leave you

And I am gonna stay

I am gonna leave you

If you love me this way

And your arms are asleep upon me

And you feel my kisses on you

And the street lights shine

Upon your skin

And I'm feeling everything

Lay on your spine

Stretch your body out

Rub my face across your body

Can't rub these feelings out

 

 

 

 

First Ideas For In The Middle Of The Night Idea 137

 

Lights are flashing

The wind is blowing

And the rain comes down

Trains go by and cars drown out the sound

Planes are flying high

Gonna touch the sky one day

Gonna take you all away

Gonna keep me here and there

Gonna take our love everywhere

And go girl baby come with me

Love it coming out to see

And every time you walking my way

I'm going to sing

Well the wind is blowing

And the lights are flashing high in the sky

And you take my love and me

And I can sing and don't know why

Every time you come to me our love shines

Every time a train goes by

I'm feeling blind

Standing in a phone box singing tales of woe and blow

Exchange your money for the things that you don't know

And the adverts blow upon the wind in the rain

And you come and lie by me again and again

Forces come and go to tell my love to go every where

I don't care

And the adverts flying high in the sky

And the adverts fly high

In the sky

And an old man runs by

The woman starts to cry

Every time you see me

You're waving from the train goodbye

Love comes up on the sky

Limp to the door

And sleep upon the floor tonight

And your love comes and goes

And your love comes and goes

And everybody wants to know

Hold me tight

Let me write

Everybody's gone tonight

Everybody's going to fight

 

 

Idea 138

 

I'm watching the storm on my TV

Look out the window at the rain

Birds fly down

Sitting on the ground where we last sat in the rain

Watch the wind blow

As I look in your eyes

You close down and sleep

You turn away and I feel the love you feel for me

I see you smiling in the puddles of the sky

I don't know why you go

 

The trees are blowing in the wind

The clouds are flying by

The TV's going and the radio's a blast

Everybody's flying by everyone wants to know

 

Don't let it slip away don't let it go

Come the wind and the snow

 

The flowers are blooming

 

The waves are washing on the sea

 

I don't know I can't see

 

But your love is turning in the wind

Like a bird that's coming home to stay

I can feel you here next to me

A thousand miles away

But I don't know if it's time

 

Come to me and take my hand, my love, my song

Come to me and take this story what went wrong

You come to me upon the lights upon the ground

There's no sound

It's not loud

You lie across my sofa and you smile

You turn the numbers on my dial

You look at me and whistle all the while away

I won't stay

I won't pray

 

All the rain upon the floor brushes on my feet no more

The cars go by and the planes up in the sky

I don't know I can't sing I can't tell you everything

But I know you love to come, be with me,

So hold your breast against my heart

Take this love back to the start

Hold my hand and make me smile all the while

I can't die keep the style everybody knows the way

And I can't sing and I can't go and I can't go my heart today

And I don't know the way you're going to keep my lovin'

Everybody gonna know gonna go gonna take that love to soul

Gonna take my love to keep my heart

Everybody knows

And I can't sing and I can't ring and I can't tell you everything

And don't know if this will go

Gonna take my everything

And I don't know.

In the middle of my dying I will play

In the middle of your life I'll sing this way

In the middle of my dying I will keep you away

 

In the middle of the night

In the middle of your dreams

In the middle of a storm we sing

 

In the middle of the way we make love

I will kiss you and tell you I love you

In the middle of the night

 

In the middle of your breath I'll kiss you

In the middle of the way we dance we're true

In the middle of the words I say to you

In the middle of my life I find you

 

 

In the middle of the things we do and say

In the middle of the visions that come our way

In the middle of the journeys we're meant to see

In the middle of a crisis

Our peace be with me

Other lyrics from 2009

 

Going to taste you

Wind blows the leaves

You walk hand in hand

While birds lie in a field

Till the rain has passed

Dogs are walking

Painted skin

Hand outstretched means everything

Kissing in the car
