AIRPORT

Late night, last train
Rich sounds of evening
Look for the rain
And fly through small towns

Vines grow over
Small shapes of snow drift
Sparrows are loose on the street

Above modern falling light
We move beyond
And you river to weave me oh slowly slow sky

Late night
Last train
This quiet feeling
Seems the moonlight was here

 

 

OTHERSIDE

If I could steal a moment I would lock it up in time
I'd wrap it up with ribbon , declare it as divine.
I'd savour every second like it was a tasty treat
Recall each special flavour like we're seated at a feast.
Hold on to that moment, frozen space in time
Preserve that rare illusion & gratify my mind
We'd wander round each statue on a tour of stolen treats
Each moment is eternal we would not accept defeat.
If I could steal that moment then I'd give it all to you.
Bestow a precious treasure and we'd see our world a new.

Don't fly away
Don't fly away today
Don't fly away across that changing sky
Just stay here by my side


If  I could steal a moment and record my favourite date
I'd track it onto vinyl so I wouldn't have to wait
I'd play it at my leisure, I'd wear down every track
It would be my favourite album, my symphony in black
I’d study every measure
Familiarize each line
The melody is mastered, unparalleled design.
Imagine that each sound you hear was made with you in mind
I'd planned that note just for you to recall that place in time
If I could steal that moment then I'd give it all to you
Bestow this precious treasure and we'd see our world a new

 

 

MONTAUK

He came for the comfort of strangers
He came un-assured, full of doubt
Falling for her care free behaviour
Irreverence hooked him from the start
She said I’m messed up, impulsive
I don’t need redemption
And I cannot help you be saved
Now it’s too late
They’re stuck and they’re sinking
Predestined to live the same way

Love requires payment for
Each moment that’s been lent
No drug can save them
They must remember
In order to forget

Won't you come back
Come back for me
I’ll set you free

She tried to erase his presence
Dissolve the trace on her heart
I just couldn’t quit you
You’re the one I come back to
I find you each new place I start
You know my body like your back hand
your scent, my best friend
Our world can’t be stolen so fast
Give me a chance
Explain all that happened
Distinguish the good from the bad

I can’t recall a thing without you
A dawning of my life
Guard that memory
Oh keep just this one
By morning it might be gone

Didn’t you see the same thing
Didn’t you feel the same thing
That turbulent tide
Compelled it's our guide
Didn't’ you want that passion
Those frenzied highs
I told you would pull you back in
Don’t play me hopeless gambler
You won’t win!

Won't you come back (come back to beginning)
Come back. (Make us a good, goodbye)
Come back for me

 

 

NERO

Lower your guard. Why scorn before you start?
Slow down play hard, know when you've gone too far
Confessions your card
When there's a a will to learn
Desire this part, can't stop you've gone too far

You're always preaching the answers
You're always playing the fool
Offering only maybes
In the end it's only you.

Whispered it once, I heard it loud and clear
You're out of time - the red line is all too near
Enraged by the fight
Know when you'll play your part
You're out of touch. Fuelled by the fire's heart.

We're always wokring to sunrise
We're always chasing the jewel
A search for a winsome lover
It ends with only you - You're our of time!

Oh my heart knows, Oh My heart sings

 

 

SIMPLE WISHES

Little one, why so shy?
You close your eyes, playing seek your way to hide
You don't have to be scared, illusion, empty fear, until your wish is clear
Hold on, hold on now - I'll be your guide

Little one, how you shine!
Northern lights, they illuminate the night
Calling out to your youth
Moonchild you once knew, whatever you do
Hold on, hold on now - all will be right.

No burden you hide behind, fragile heart will find
Cunning lies try and taunt you
Don't let them haunt you
Dream! There is magic here
Shining so bright

 

 

LITTLE TALKS

Morning creeps into being
Taking it’s place to rise
Drenching the sun I could see that I was
Making a space in the light

Here I feel that soft feeling
It’s like a warm sweet cup of tea
Content for the time in this new peace of mind
Considering if I should stay

New sounds, new towns appearing to me
Making me shiver and sigh
Well I think that I’ll choose to go looking some more
Walking that road even if I should fall
The more time that passes I’m certain it’s all about
These things called little talks

Drawn to the things that surround me
What will I find today
A scattered light dust, moved in shadows across
A stillness transformed in the light

I’ve compared all my thoughts and my glories
To find nothing has come from this
The things from the earth fill men with new light
 But dash them back down in the fall

What are the signs to this highway of life
Are we so lost or just blind?
Well I think that I’ll choose to go looking some more
Walking that road even if I should fall
The more time that passes I’m certain it’s all about
These things called little talks

 

 

CHELSEA MORNING

Lyrics by Joni Mitchell
 

Woke up, it was a Chelsea Morning
And the first thing that I heard
Was a song outside my window
And the traffic wrote the words
It came a reelin' up Like Christmas bells
And rappin' up Like pipes and drums
Oh, wont you stay
Well put on the day
And we’ll wear it
Til the night comes

Woke up, it was a Chelsea Morning
And the first thing that I saw
Was the sun through yellow curtains
And a rainbow on the wall
Blue, red, green And gold to welcome you
Crimson crystal beads To beckon
Oh, wont you stay
We’ll put on the day
There's a sun show Every second

Now the curtain opens on a portrait of today
And the streets are paved with passersby
And pigeons fly, and papers lie waitin' to blow away

Woke up, it was a Chelsea Morning
And the first thing that I knew
There was milk and toast and honey
And a bowl of oranges too
And the sun poured In like butterscotch
And stuck to all my senses
Oh, wont you stay we’ll put on the day
And we’ll talk In present tenses

When the curtain closes and the rainbow runs away
I'll bring you incense owls by night
By candlelight, by jewel-light
If only you will stay
Pretty baby, wont you stay
Wake up, its a Chelsea Morning

 

 

GAMES

Soon there’ll be no bitterness in this world of solace
Making up for all the time we lost
Knowing answers in this place weren’t to be

Soon, Its all but here just steal or borrow
Claiming this reckless heart
Taking chances to a life never free

We’ll find a heart that let’s us hope, that will yearn, that will grow
Finding pleasure in every hope, that can play, and we’ll know that there’s nothing we cannot hold
So we’ll love and we’ll learn
And we’ll make up little games to play!


Soon, there’s no final world to break this sorrow
Chasing this wicked heart
Trading answers to a test never seen

Who’d ever let their heart go freely?
Hoping for light in every change
You’ll let your heart run wild if it’s only for a day
But we’ll never ever start too soon

We’ll find a heart that let’s us hope, that will yearn, that will grow
Knowing pleasure in every hope, that can play, and we’ll know,
That there’s nothing we cannot hold
So we love and we’ll learn, to surrender to nature’s hold
As we play, and we learn, and we’ll make up little games, make up little games!

 

 

LOVE NOT LOVIN'

Say you wanna know if I'm alright
Say you wanna know that I'm ok
Say to me any old sweet lie and I'll be on my way
Say you love not lovin' and that you're ok

We were like children on a tightrope, nit knowing the net had gone
Lost in a n endless silence refusing to say what's wrong
Oh I feel I'm running free on any road away from you
Yet I spend my time, my days, maybe my life trying so hard, trying to forget you.

An endless sea of questions, in defiance you answer none
You're mouthing all the right words, a silent bullet in a gun
You wear pretence just like your skin but not all heroes wear a mask
Cos the girl in red can no longer accept a saviour who can't confess

Oh there's no way, no place, no part of time I don't wish I could take it all back
I'm thinking bout your skin, your touch and damn your heart
I'm addicted and I cannot adapt - we had it so good!
But it was just too right
Unbelievably so good, but it was just too right.
Cos the crazy, the panic, the hope that was fear could not hide. I awoke and you'd left me there
Thinking I could not understand.

Say you wanna know if I'm alright
Say you wanna know that I'm ok
Say to me any old sweet lie and I'll be on my way
Say you love not lovin' and that you will stay.
