Lyrics

Lay me down. Lay me low. Let me sleep. Let me go. Cuz this heart it’s beatin' slow and the blood beneath it coils. May tomorrow never come and the moon put out the sun. And the stars on fire above. Oh, Lay me down. Take me home. Take me down. Under the soil. Under the ground. Take this kiss upon the brow. Let me lay here with you now. For tomorrow I'll be gone. And the road it lingers on. So tonight let's be as one. Oh lay me down.

Lyrics

When you burned my eyes I was just a child. When the leaves had gone I was all alone. When the blossoms fell love had cast its spell. When the frost had come I was twenty-one. If we catch the sun. Before it comes undone. If we touch the wind before it ever ends. When you burned my eyes. When I was done with school you were fifty-two. The day I went away you drove me to the bay. So the years have gone. Seldom home I come. I see it in your face. In hugs and wet misplace. If we catch the sun. Before it comes undone. If we touch the wind before it ever ends. When you burned my eyes.

Lyrics

Ain´t no life. Ain´t no fun. Ain´t no job. Ain´t no home. Be the one. Shout it out. Fuck this town. Fuck this life. Run. Leave. Quit. Go. Hunt. Search. Seek. Grow. Ain´t no time. Ain´t no place. Ain´t no world. Ain´t no race. Be the one. Shout it out. Fuck this town. Fuck this life. Run. Leave. Quit. Go. Hunt. Search. Seek. Grow. I need to find a deepness inside. I need a better place to run. I need to go where the heart meets the soul. I need a better place to run. I need to see the leaves on the tree. I need a better place to run.

Lyrics

St. Peter’s Isle I was touched by your smile shining down on me. Though it was late apple petals touched my face falling down on me. Oh, how holy life is by your side. Oh, how lonely time is as it flies. I can see by your eyes the light has expired. Stars will come out soon above. Sit for a while as the evening star catches fire. All I need is your smile. Your smile. Oh, how holy life is by your side. Oh, how lonely time is as it flies.

Lyrics

Seven-thirty-five and the tired pour out on the street. Where the weary and the worn and the naked all come to meet. And every step you take upon this battered road you see the sign’s the same. And when you turn this broken corner see that nothing much has ever changed. Lines of faces stuck inside the window spilling coffee, cream and pain. The waitress at the counter telling stories filled with sadness once again. No one ever said it snows in April once again. No one said the lonely heart is always filled with dread. No one said the phones at night are ringin' 'til their dead. No one said. Six-thirty-eight and the silent crack of light down the hall. The sleeping rise to write the holy message high upon the wall. You rise and watch the sun as it boils across this city’s dirty shelf. And wonder how the hell you’ll put upon this frozen smile of sacred wealth. The shower stains of rust leave broken marks of Cain upon your breast. The early morning news speaks of fire, brimstone, and death. No one ever said it snows in April once again. No one said the lonely heart is always filled with dread. No one said the phones at night are ringin' 'til their dead. No one said. Twelve-twenty-three and the lonely pour back to the street. Toting sacks of brown, sunglasses, and greasy things to eat. And all museum steps are cool and white to offer solace from the swell. And all the glass and steal climbs upwards high above this city cell. Think of all the ships floating down like crystals in the night. Tumbling down forever cathedrals towering and bright. No one ever said it snows in April once again. No one said the lonely heart is always filled with dread. No one said the phones at night are ringin' 'til they're dead. No one said. No one said the neon lights are flashin' in your head. No one said the blood inside is rushing thick and red. No one said the human heart is fragile in the end. No one said. No one said that all the days were worse than all the nights. No one said that every soul would one day be alright. No one said the flowers stay all colorful and bright. No one said. And the heart is just a snowflake wandering in the night. A soul a piece of star falling wet and bright. And when it hits your face it stings with all its might. All its might.

Lyrics

Rip down the walls. Tear up the chair. Pull down the clocks downstairs. Crash all the cars. Dig up the road. Wreck all the bars you know. It´s no fun without you anymore. There´s just no sun without you anymore. Smash all the glass. Break all the toys. Shed all the past you shared. Cut all the chords. Shred all the ties. Slit all the worlds some more. So say your goodbyes soft and low. Say you won´t cry no more. So say it´s OK. Say it ain´t so. The sky won´t crash when you go. It's no fun without you anymore.

Lyrics

’Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought’’ P.B. Shelley

Skylark, skylark. Skylark you’re a song drifting in the sky. Starlight, starlight. Starlight you’re a poem shining in the night. I’m flying. I’m climbing. I’m crying here by you side. Higher, higher. Higher you will climb in your flight. Shimmer, shimmer. Shimmer burning bright passing by. I’m flying. I’m climbing. I’m crying. Here by you side. Skylark, Skylark. Skylark will you die? In the morning light? Skylark. Skylark. Skylark you and I in the night.

Lyrics

For Anne Blonstein

Shiny pearl. Coloured Glasses and worlds so blue. Broken voice and twisted words. Scratch the pages black and true. Break the lines, the verses in two. Change the world my shiny pearl. And you shine. And you shine. Day is through. And the night it whispers to you. Like summer vows. Like grains that grew. Yellow waves and fields in hue. Touch the earth in poems so few. Change the world my shiny pearl. My sweet pearl. In the light and under the moon. Through the books and darkened room. Wounded rhyme and hollow womb. Change the world my shiny pearl. Chase away these Autumn blues. Help me make it. Help me through. Help me find my shiny world. Help me find my shiny pearl.

Lyrics

Red earth underneath my shoes. Colder than Nevada snow. I saw light on foggy bay. I walked under the Golden Gate. Oh, carry on. Before you’re dead and gone. Oh, carry on. The road it waits for thee. A home for you and me. I drove cross the USA. I saw pain in every face. Headlights chasing down the dawn. Lost souls each and every one. This life is a ramblin’ stone. This town will one day grow old. I’ll find a place to roam. Cause this life’s a tumblin' storm. The road it waits for thee.

Lyrics

You pick up the phone. Go downstairs. Fix up the room and do up your hair. Answer the door and move all the chairs. Look outside. Nobody's there. Whatever you do there's nobody there. So lift up the weight and heave up the stone. Break all the lights and strip down the floors. Cut all the ties and rip up the chords. Whatever you do there's nobody's there. Wash all the clothes and ring all the bells. Sing all the songs and mix the cocktails. Drain all the baths and set off the flares. Whatever you do there's nobody's there. So step out the door. Run outside. Put on a coat. Put on a disguise. Look for the girl. Hunt for the guy. Look for the sign way up in the sky. Whatever you do there's nobody there.

Lyrics

In the town where you live. See the folks. See the kids. See the cracks that line the streets. In the town where you live. On the road where you go. See the cars. See the snow. See the lives as gently they flow. On the road where you go. Far away long ago. You were young. Time was slow. Trees were tall. Branches bowed. Far away long ago. Higher and higher, climbing we go. Faster and faster, upwards we go. See us go. Close your eyes. Come with me. Take a breath by the sea. Board the ship that waits for thee. On the boat by the sea. On the street where you live. See the folks. See the kids. See the lines that mark the trees. On the street where you live.

Lyrics

I was lost, I was gone. I was stray. I was wrong. And my life it is long. Broken chord, minor song. I was following the sign. I was searching all the time. But the road how it winds. Shattered word. Wounded rhyme. On the road the wild wind blows. Listen as it goes. I was calling out your name. I was weeping at the gate. But the hour it was late. Bad time. Twisted fate. Now the years have passed us by. On the road from born to died. How we wander. How we fly. Don’t get far but how we try. On the road the wild wind blows. Listen as it goes.

Lyrics

Sometimes it hurts so bad. Sometimes there´s pain. Sometimes the sun don´t shine. Sometimes there´s rain. I know that flowers go. They come again. I know the sky outside will not remain. Let it come down. Don´t cry. Everything must die. It all goes away in the end. Don´t look so sad. Hold on to what you have. It all washes away with the rain. Sweet, sweet rain. Let it come down.
