Sing Till You Follow – Lady & Jo 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

                                          

You are but a tiny seed 

A willow wild, and Autumn breeze 

Waking deep inside of me 

Born of stars and galaxies 

I am but the earth of gold 

Warm and wise, a tale untold 

Lay your head your precious soul 

And bloom within my soil 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

You are stories yet to hear 

Of Winter’s warmth, Spring is here 

And with her you shall soon appear 

As perfect as a song 

I am but the waves of green 

Of where we are, and where we’ve been 

Carry you down the promised stream 

To lights beyond the warm 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing your tomorrow 

I will sing till you follow 

I will sing till you follow 

We are but those tiny seeds 

Of wisdom wild, to grow and feed 

Shade us ‘neath your tallest tree 

We’ll bloom within your soil

Some Just Come

which way did you come from
did I let you in
to spaces where the darkness played
suddenly the sun shines in

hazy eyed though I cant sleep
neath a candle burning low
a painting brush in my right hand
and the evening sky begins to cry

so slow
she begins to cry
so slow

I’m painting perfect melodies
all sung in perfect time
with perfect smiles when all the while
there's a little girl entwined

in showing you her loveliness
hiding neath her colours sage
with a smile she lets her heart out
behind violet eyes and emerald skies she plays

oh she dances in the rain
she plays

I’m all awash and seeping
deeper love neath blackest lash
you captured me in keeping
all yourself in sweet Nicholas-ness

and undercover glances
what you didn’t see me find
I stumbled on a treasure
and on certain winds you hear me sing

so fine
oh you hear me sing
so fine

she dances in the rain
oh she plays

and the evening sky
begins to cry
slow
she begins to cry
so slow
she dances in the rain
and the evening sky begins to cry
and the evening sky begins to cry
and the evening sky begins to cry
and the evening sky begins to cry
and the evening sky begins to cry....


City Moonshine Fragile Heart

I write you of this night
Of a city moonshine fragile heart
This heart of mine today
Feels, she is made, of glass

Yet another bus
On yet another fragile day
This you and me of us
From here, to there, and back again
From here, to there and back again

Love
Weave me
The ghosts of our world
Breathe me
Love
Weave me
Breathe me
Like we've never been

A day more hard than some
To kiss your mouth and walk away
Play me like an accordion
Till the bellows
Blow me through
Your gates

My belly feels the call
My belly all anticipates
The you and me of all
Your hand holds mine
Beneath the mists of fate
Beneath the mists of fate

Love
Weave me
The ghosts of our world
Breathe me
Love
Weave me
Breathe me
Like we've never been

Sing me sing me the time
Where the white
and the black birds fly...

Love
Weave me
The ghosts of our world
Breathe me
Love
Weave me
Breathe me
Like we've never been



Inny

when i was a sailor of the sea
in ragged clothes on a ragged boat
there's me

white horses prance
they dance eternally
as my ship she sails me closer
to where i want to be

well my white cat
mans the bow
my black the stern

and when the lady calls my name
through air that burns

its your time to cross on over
come to learn
of the women's ways
we'll initiate your turn

they say lets sail
they say lets sail...away

well the dark howled rain
the sea unfurled her storm
as my ship she sailed the water
three sails torn

lightning crossed the sky
those with watchful eyes
blew horns

for the women of past future now
they're born

they say lets sail
they say lets sail...away

this is the end
beautiful friend
the end
this is the end
my only friend
the end
of our elaborate plans
the end
of everything that stands
the end
no safety or surprise
the end
i'll never look into your eyes
again

neath jungle growth
they wove a story old
tents of red
and sister's hands they hold
secrets waived for centuries
untold
the bones of the mothers and the mothers
and the mothers of old

i join the circle and the cycle
and the song
part of the tapestry in colours strong
weaved together in a wilderness
along the way
we play

the music
is where we belong...



Fortunes of Free

You push me out to sea
And i disappear from view
The waves are coming in
Past the walls, you can't see through

The lostness all appears
And we're apart again
Broken down by fear
Though you're here
Holding my hand

I'm lost
Inside this love
Lonely, lonely
I am not enough

Not enough to be
All your
Fortunes of Free
Lonely Lonely
I am only Me....

The blindfold
leaves the dark
Cross my eyes
Across my heart
Silence crashes in
Louder than
The words, they spin

Circles in my mind
Trailing, I am left behind
Protection walls her in
As we're, apart, again...

I'm lost
Inside this love
Lonely, lonely
I am not enough

Not enough to be
All your
Fortunes of Free
Lonely Lonely
I am only Me....

Gently Softly
Gently Softly
Gently Softly
Gently Softly
Gently Softly
I am only
Me.......





Are Birds in Love

Are Birds in Love
do they feel shivers down their wings
when feathers touch
do they feel such

Are Birds in Love
do they lay their weary heads
on lover's crest
within love's nest

Are Birds in Love
Ride the night home she whispers
Fly with me he says
Chase the wind on she whispers
Fly with me he says

Are Birds in Love
do they feel flutters bells and butterflies
do they lock eyes
do they lock eyes

Are Birds in Love
do they wake at break of day
to share the sun
with just their one

Are Birds in Love
Ride the night home she whispers
Fly with me he says
Chase the wind on she whispers
Fly with me he says

There is a swan that falls
the day her love
is gone and cries
out song

Am i that swan
that loves just one just one
that swan that falls
the day her love
has gone

Are Birds in Love
Are Birds in Love
Are Birds in Love
Are Birds in Love



State of My Soul

I am now
You are tomorrow
Embrace this hour
Whose time can I borrow

I am here
You are endlessly there
Lonesome tear
Runs rivers nowhere

Oh oh oh oh oh
State of my soul

Golden gate
With your arrow and bow
Defend your heart
In a pleasure all slow

Your silence seeks
To the beat of a drum
Sorceress seeks
As night comes undone

Oh oh oh oh oh
State of my soul
Oh oh oh oh oh
Mate of my soul

We will find
One lover’s shrine
Where exists no time
There exists no time
And love love
Love will grow
For the state of my soul

I am now
You are tomorrow
Embrace this hour
Whose time can I borrow

I am here
You are endlessly there
Lonesome tear
Runs rivers nowhere

Oh oh oh oh oh
State of my soul
Oh oh oh oh oh
Mate of my soul

Purple stallions
Fly the sky
Wings embedded in
Rubies found on Mercury
And undiscovered seas

Purple stallions
Fly the sky
Wings embedded in
Rubies found on Mercury
And eyes
For the state of my soul

Mate of my soul
State of my soul
Mate of my soul

Soul
For the state of my soul
For the mate of my soul
For the state of my soul…



Called Her Down

the old ones told me
she's on her way
she's on her way

the old ones called me
leave today
you better leave today

on the dawn of a rising sun
i set sail

the wise ones told me
your time is now
your time is now

the wise ones told me
woman take your vows
you better take your vows

neath the light of a rising moon
we called her down

songlines travel the earth neath my feet
destinies dance neath the waters deep
my belly begins to swell like the sea
as a star crossed the sky
from the west
to the east


the sweet one whispered
your day is near
your day is near

the sweet one whispered
mama
let go of fear
let go of your fear

and the wind from the north
she blew
from there to here

songlines travel the earth neath my feet
destinies dance neath the waters deep
my belly begins to swell like the sea
as a star crossed the sky
from the west
to the east

songlines travel
songlines travel
songlines travel
songlines travel



Yemaya


Dreamt of a dragon
of fire and of stone
lapis lazuli eyes

dreamt of the water
of which she was born
lapis lazuli cries

dreamt of a scorpion
the sun in her sign
her tale, a tale to be

dreamt of yemaya
daughter of mine
yemaya queen of the sea

she was the wildest song
i ever sung
howling wolves
singing in tongues

lions roar, ancient lore
knights and kings drew their swords
for yemaya, queen of the sea

ammonite spirals,
kaleidescope love
a queen in aquamarine

goddess incarnate,
a gift from above
a queen, from my lucid dreams

left from the heavens
to play upon this earth
her way is paved in gold

dreamt of yemaya
daughter i birthed
yemaya great love of old

she was the wildest song
i ever sung
howling wolves
singing in tongues

lions roar, ancient lore
knights and kings drew their swords
for yemaya, queen of the sea



When My Love went Down


When my love went down
To kingdoms underground
The earth on which he lay
It disappeared, gave way

Time toward he fell
Twards sounds of ringing bells
And lizards long they sang in songs of shells

When my love he woke
To 7 pipes of smoke
Their chanting raised the dead
Their stories weaved and led
Through deserts of a dream
To a distant running stream
They bathed with him neath setting suns of steam

When my love he spoke
A language 'fore unknown
His words turned into dust
His body turned to lust
The tears on which he rode
A stallion down that road
Carved canyons of his trails
That ships do sail

When my love returned
All hair and skin of burn
He lay down by my skin
Til he disappeared within
To the blood within my veins
To the words with which i say
That lizards long
They sang in songs of rain

When my love went down
To kingdoms underground
The earth on which he lay
It disappeared, gave way

Time toward he fell
Twards sounds of ringing bells
And lizards long
they sang in songs
of shells



My Muse

rambling solider
let the leaves smoulder
wizard comes dancing
times we were older

dogs lay in silence
trees wept in salt tears
loss of the embers
fever runs high here

travelers roam lands
empty with crows black
carrying dreams
in bags upon their backs

Luminar birthed near
Yemaya in time
winter wind blows here
red sky becomes wine

sleep where the world ends
stars fall on mountains
run fox to dark dens
safe from all past men

lay down your old bones
rest neath the earths stone
wizard keeps dancing
we'll follow him home

and i return to you
and i return to my muse









lyrics.

Once

Once upon a sweet time
You stood on a hill
Alone and unreal
And I kept walking

Once upon a sweet time
The world ceased to spin
I looked back and grinned
And we were caught in

Darling love me now
Won’t you love me now
As I move so brave in your sea

Darling love me now
Till the dark climbs down
And we’re wild, and naked
and free

Under dark desert night
One boy and one girl
On the edge of the world
And chimes rang slowly

Once upon a sweet time
We stood on the wind
She wrapped us within
And your eyes, your eyes
Your eyes…

Darling love me now
Won’t you love me now
As I move so brave in your sea

Darling love me now
Till the dark climbs down
And we’re wild, and naked
and free

We are wild and naked and free
We are wild and naked and free…


Tel Aviv Song

Dawn breaks my reverie
Vagabonds come to me
Here there and everywhere
I sing them songs

Nine thousand windows
And nobody’s home
We have hearts like volcanoes
All set to explode
To explode

I’m walking, I’m walking
This sweet of a Tel Aviv street
You’re standing there smiling
You don’t know
How you do to me

And I’m singing as I’m walking
This sweet of a Tel Aviv
Sweet of a Tel Aviv street

I see you there smiling
You don’t know
How you do to me

I’m singing
Sweeeeeet love melody
Sweeeeeet Tel Aviv melody
Sweet, Tel Aviv melody
Sweet, Tel Aviv melody
Sweet.

Night owls make their sounds
And I have been lost and found
Many times over
And over again

Whisper me new tales
Of serpents and nightingales
Fly through this light time
This night time
This light time


I’m walking, I’m walking
This sweet of a Tel Aviv street
You’re standing there smiling
You don’t know
How you do to me

And I’m singing as I’m walking
This sweet of a Tel Aviv
Sweet of a Tel Aviv street

I see you there smiling
You don’t know
How you do to me

I’m singing
Sweeeeeet love melody
Sweeeeeet Tel Aviv melody
Sweet, Tel Aviv melody
Sweet, Tel Aviv melody
Sweet.

Dawn breaks my reverie
Vagabonds come to me
Here there and everywhere
I sing them songs


Unknown

I was a girl laid next to him
I was a girl who slept upon her wings

I was a girl who stayed up late
I was a girl who fed the hands
of fate

I was a girl who bled in blue
I was a girl who waited for the moon

I was a girl who cried for man
I was a girl who traded gold for sand

And the waves washed her away…

I was a girl who loved the lost
I was a minstrel’s song of silver frost

I was a girl who wrote of lions
I was a girl who spoke in tongues my own

And the waves washed her away…


Ithaca


As you set out for Ithaca
May your voyage linger on
Thoughts held high amongst the stars
No your demons don’t belong

As you set out for the Isle of Time
May your body feel the stir
Visions new delight your skies
She is where you’re destined for
Whoa whoa whoa

Ebony and coral
Amber and peal
Egyptian cities call you
And the voices
In your soul

Ithaca
Lights your eyes
And all your ships are sailing

Ithaca
Frees your mind
Your destiny, your destiny
Your destiny’s unveiling

As you set out for Ithaca
Where your Cyclops dares to hide
Poseidon bares all before
Your traveler’s heart so wide

Oh as you set out for Ithaca
There is no need to fear
Your fortune lay in the journey
She is wiser for your years
Whoa whoa whoa

Ebony and coral
Amber and peal
Egyptian cities call you
And the voices
In your soul

Ithaca
Lights your eyes
And all your ships are sailing

Ithaca
Frees your mind
Your destiny, your destiny
Your destiny’s unveiling

As you set out for Ithaca
You will find her rich or poor
A never ending traveler’s tale
Unfolds upon her shore…


City Moonshine Fragile Heart

I write you of this night
Of a city moonshine fragile heart
This heart of mine today
Feels, she is made, of glass

Yet another bus
On yet another fragile day
This you and me of us
From here, to there, and back again
From here, to there and back again

Love
Weave me
The ghosts of our world
Breathe me
Love
Weave me
Breathe me
Like we’ve never been

A day more hard than some
To kiss your mouth and walk away
Play me like an accordion
Till the bellows
Blow me through
Your gates

My belly feels the call
My belly all anticipates
The you and me of all
Your hand holds mine
Beneath the mists of fate
Beneath the mists of fate

Love
Weave me
The ghosts of our world
Breathe me
Love
Weave me
Breathe me
Like we’ve never been

Sing me sing me the time
Where the white
and the black birds fly…

Love
Weave me
The ghosts of our world
Breathe me
Love
Weave me
Breathe me
Like we’ve never been


5:30am


There are words on the wind
And I breathe life in
And I taste the sky
And wonder why
I forget to remember
How to live this life

And the city she
Breathes on my skin
As I watch a lilac night roll in
And a day disappear
Oh the birds are all I hear

All I want to do is
Lay lay lay
All I want to do is
Stay stay stay
Everything else just fades away
All I want to see is your face

All I want to see is your face

Well a city bus rolls on by
As I
Close my eyes, dream of fireflies,
Warm nights
You and I don’t forget to remember
How to live this life

And this city she beats in my blood
As the northern lights call me
From above
So far, so far
You are
My love

All I want to do is
Lay lay lay
All I want to do is
Stay stay stay
Everything else just fades away
All I want to see is your face

All I want to do is
Run run run to you
All I want to do is
Come come come with you
All I want to be is one one one
With you
All I want to see is your….

All I want to see is your…
Your face smiling through the window
See a new expression that I don’t know
Feel your piano fingers on my..
Watch you sleeping til the sun rise high

Hear you sing Jim Morrison to me
Save tonight
I’ll leave at 5:30am
Back on the bus to my city life again
Leave at 5:30am

All I want to see is your face…


Unseal Reveal


Winter chill is at my door again
Hard to tell where my skin begins
and where warmth ends
I ain’t answering no call
I ain’t answering no call

Today’s the day to withdraw again
Solitude I choose
My company I can’t refrain
And it’s your words on which I draw
It’s your words on which I draw

You wrote
Unseal reveal
There are snakes entwined
This place of rhythm,
where I rest

You wrote Unseal reveal
There are snakes entwined there

We can dance here sister
We can dance here sister
We can dance here sister

Scarlet ravishes the sky to the west
A staircase to the sun
She hides behind the clouds their grey

And I’m safe within these walls
I’m so happy ‘tween these walls

To the girl who wrote the words
of which I sing
It’s for you I dream
It’s for you that I am thinking

and Your poetry’s my score
Your poetry’s my score

You wrote Unseal reveal
There are snakes entwined
This place of rhythm,
where I rest

You wrote Unseal reveal
There are snakes entwined there

We can dance here sister
We can dance here sister
We can dance here sister…..


Come run with me

Come run with me
Where the shadows meet the sea

Come run with me
Let our softest secrets be

I want to hold your hand
Across these sands
If you hear this song
If you hear this song
Know I sing for you

My body falls
In waves caress my face
Your body talks
My eyes speak endless space

I want to hold your hand
Across these sands
If you hear this song
If you hear this song
Know I sing for you

You are my someone to run with
You are my someone to run with
You are my someone to run with…


Broken Bones

I am without protection
To your affection
To our unease

I am a without a horseman
I’ve no field force man
To this disease

I need to build a castle of my own
With walls of china old
I'll build with walls of broken bones
Cause baby when we’re sailing
In the stormiest of seas
I need a place of mine
My castle’s where I’ll be
My castle’s where I’ll be

I am all emotion
A heart too open
A breath unsafe

I am a river’s water
My mama’s daughter
A box of faith

I need to build a castle of my own
With walls of china old
I'll build with walls of broken bones
Cause baby when we’re sailing
In the stormiest of seas
I need a place of mine
My castle’s where I’ll be
My castle’s where I’ll be

I'll cover her with vines
That creep and wind her stony path
Candle flame
A million tiny lights pervade her dark
The path to which you’ll find her
Shall be only known to one
Fortress in a forest
My island in the sun

I will build with broken bones
And bones and bones
And bones and bones

I will build with broken bones
And bones and bones
And bones and bones…
 

State of My Soul

I am now
You are tomorrow
Embrace this hour
Whose time can I borrow

I am here
You are endlessly there
Lonesome tear
Runs rivers nowhere

Oh oh oh oh oh
State of my soul

Golden gate
With your arrow and bow
Defend your heart
In a pleasure all slow

Your silence seeks
To the beat of a drum
Sorceress seeks
As night comes undone

Oh oh oh oh oh
State of my soul
Oh oh oh oh oh
Mate of my soul

We will find
One lover’s shrine
Where exists no time
There exists no time
And love love
Love will grow
For the state of my soul

I am now
You are tomorrow
Embrace this hour
Whose time can I borrow

I am here
You are endlessly there
Lonesome tear
Runs rivers nowhere

Oh oh oh oh oh
State of my soul
Oh oh oh oh oh
Mate of my soul

Purple stallions
Fly the sky
Wings embedded in
Rubies found on Mercury
And undiscovered seas

Purple stallions
Fly the sky
Wings embedded in
Rubies found on Mercury
And eyes
For the state of my soul

Mate of my soul
State of my soul
Mate of my soul

Soul
For the state of my soul
For the mate of my soul
For the state of my soul…

i can’t eat

there’s a fire burning some place warm
i’m gonna follow my feet

and my heart she skips a beat
as i'm riding through these streets
on my horse she has no name
but she speaks, she says

keep singing on
keep singing on
keep being strong
keep riding on and on and on
keep singing on
keep singing on
cause baby, my baby
this is my impossible song

i’m untamed
in this frame
and it feels an ancient language
allows me to love in this way
though i’m seeped in overwhelm
i am standing at the helm
looking out to sea
and it’s you i carry with me and i say,

keep singing on
keep singing on
keep being strong
keep riding on and on and on
keep singing on
keep singing on
cause baby, my baby
this is my impossible song

beautiful world

you and i, in this beautiful world
under tiny fires burning in the sky
you and i, in this beautiful world
where i’m feeling so big and so small
at the same time

and you told me how you loved me
like the rocks they love the waves
and your words sweep me away
beyond the dusk

and you took me to your banyan tree
on the day that I first came
and I lost myself
somewhere between love and lust

you and i, in this beautiful world
where your love’s too big
for just one girl to hold
you and i you and i you and i
in this beautiful world
where in one long moment
i’m feeling so young, and so old
and you told me how you loved me
with the words you couldn’t say
and I smiled and with my eyes I said the same
and you drew from me emotion
that was caught within the seams
and I have to choose myself or you
it seems

and you told me when I let go
that you could see translucent wings
invisible to all the eyes but yours
and you laughed so, when you smiled at me
as I was dancing on the beach
we felt so close and now
we’re out of reach

you and i, in this beautiful world
where I finally see how to
read behind your eyes
you and i you and i you and i
in this beautiful world
where we’re holding hands
and drinking chai
neath those tiny fires
in the sky…..

sinbad says

on a sultan’s roof the wind she plays
across the seas a prayers wail
and Oshan dreams
all his troubles away

neath October skies
sweet Sophia lay
a thousand eyes each their own
they pray
and the world outside
what’s on the news today

on the cobbled stones of Istanbul
Sinbad says, it’s written full
world peace is inevitable
on the cobbled stones of Istanbul
Sinbad says, it’s written full
world peace is inevitable

under Turkish sun how Marco draws
charcoal lines, what beauty saw
and Julian plays, black and white
so quiet

and Ebert paints in strokes of tea
washes bronze the world he seas
and we all bow
to this precious now

on the cobbled stones of Istanbul
Sinbad says, it’s written full
world peace is inevitable
peace is inevitable…..

halfway

sing low sweet honey bee row row row your wooden boat to me
sail on, oh gently cross the seas
oh love of mine...chase my melody

humming birds they shall lead your way
glide the wind, oh through another day
bicycles fly on our red hibiscus way
ride on, my love...to these strings i play...

winter turns a frozen river dream
skate on pearls, oh so melancholy
can you hear one distant heart beat
hear the sounds of my love ring the bells upon my feet

.....fly the sky like our wings say we could
climb the tide like our jim...
like our jim he said we would

night falls now, and the day she fades away
disappear like watercolours in the rain
rock a bye my baby upon my moonshine train
oh tonight my love, i'll meet you half way
yes tonight my love...i'll meet you half way
sweet kipi love...i'll meet you half way.....
 
feathers and string

standing in your kitchen
tears running down my sides
holding tight my little green bag
you pull me back inside
and hold me as I cry

you let me paint your walls that night
in fuchsia, red and green
i painted the morning in transparent light
you had a beard and pony eyes
i held my head upon my knee
you trace my face like
i’m a queen

all my walls come tumbling down
all my walls come tumbling down
my armour
of feathers and string
me and my feathers and string

you sing of crystal ships and now
the storm is almost gone
holding tight my little red heart
we travel south
you kiss my mouth

a million words that I can’t say
i sing for you to hear
i ask the past to fall away
the world to disappear
just for one day
maybe for a year
maybe for a year

all my walls come tumbling down
all my walls come tumbling down
my armour
of feathers and string
me and my feathers and string
i am all feathers and string
me and my feathers and string

you told me that your answer
it wasn’t the right one
my tears like rain are dancing
cause maybe
there’s no room in your heart for me
like I wish that there could be

all my walls come tumbling down
all my walls come tumbling down
my armour
of feathers and string
me and my feathers and string

milk and honey won’t you bring
to me and my feathers and my string
milk and honey won’t you bring
to me and my feathers and my string
me and my feathers and string
i am all feathers and string
me and my feathers and string….

I am all for you

i am all for youlike the leaves are to the trees
the rocks are to the seas yes
i am all for you
like the sky is to the blue

my hand is for your hand
like the waves are to the sand
like Paris is to France
my hand is for your hand
beautiful lady, handsome man

way way way up above
in the place where they make love
they whispered to a pretty bird
oh have you heard those two
honey i
i am all for you

my light is for your eyes
like the breath is to the sigh
the wonder to the why
my light is for your eyes
it’s you and me
you and i

way way way up above
in the place where they make love
they whispered to a butterfly
won’t you flutter by those two
honey i, honey i, honey i
i am all for you…

the bravest song

the line that divides
the truth from the lie
is sometimes so pale
when you stand on the side
and some things it seems
are bigger than we
like the force of a love
that showed me to see
the light that you shone
from a heart you saw dammed
allowed me to show you
the woman i am
the woman i am

sweet bravery of surrender
i don’t know if we’re
beginning, or we’re ending
are we beginning, or we’re ending
is this beginning
are we ending…

we planted a seed
we’re letting it go
to stand on that sideline
and see how she grows
so now here i stand
my face toward the sun
so you cannot see how i’m
coming undone
i’m coming undone

sweet bravery of surrender
i don’t know if we’re
beginning, or we’re ending
are we beginning, or we’re ending
is this beginning
are we ending

you said, you want to be
the man to protect
not the man to replace
all the armour i've shed
but i’m not made of steel
and i’m not made of glass
and somewhere between
lies this question I ask

is it me who you love?
is it you who’s my man?
could you be, would you be
could you be, would you be?

sweet bravery of surrender
i don’t know if we’re
beginning, or we’re ending
are we beginning, or we’re ending
is this beginning
are we ending…

is this the start
is this the end
how do we part
where are you my friend

is this the start
is this the end
across the seas
do you think of me

is this the start
is this the end
where do you stand
are you my man

is this the start
is this the end
where is your heart
to you this song i send…

eternal springtime

i walked into your house tonight
you walked behind me and you
asked me should I turn on the light
i said no, let’s leave it dark for a while

you held me with your coffee coloured eyes
i held your gaze but I had no place to hide
you told me it’s about letting go
but its letting go I don’t know

it’s like the rising sun
of this eternal springtime
rising sun
of this, our eternal springtime

you held me in a place I couldn’t move
sharpened all my senses, told me exactly what to do
and so i breathed so deep into the ground
and tried to quieten the heart of my sound

my body it is beating like a drum
the air it feels unsteady, I can hear a distant hum
and this energy is moving like a train
i saw us in the mirror
we blew me away

and when we said goodbye
my fingers touched your face
and when we said goodbye
all seasons four embraced
and when we said goodbye
we blew me away…
 


Blue

Well I'm blue
Does there have to be a reason
Ain't nobody stealing me
This time
I'm alone in my crime

Yeah, I'm blue
So I sit and watch Pulp Fiction
Wonder what the dictionary defines
This state of mind

Clay pots clang in silent unison
Lace your fringe boots oh my baby
Get ready to walk on, won't you walk on

Cause the bass walks a funky rhythm
Emanates beneath my feet
Blue sky bound for fortune
And rumours told in Chinese whispers

There's a lone fly, in his silken web
Blind shepherds roam my home
Mr. Moon, between me and you
This sky, this sky
And promise me Promise me love Drifts by...

Well I'm blue
And I wear it like a cloak
Like the poor man spoke
It's in his eyes
He's here too

Yeah I'm blue
On this frayed and desperate morning
Paper snakes all torn in
Sheets so fine
Up the ladders I'll climb

Clay pots clang in silent unison
Lace your fringe boots oh my baby
Get ready to walk on, won't you walk on

Cause the bass walks a funky rhythm
Emanates beneath my feet
Blue sky bound for fortune
And rumours told in Chinese whispers

There's a lone fly, in his silken web
Blind shepherds roam my home
Mr. Moon, between me and you
This sky, this sky
And promise me
Promise me love
Drifts by...




some just come

which way did you come from
did I let you in
to spaces where the darkness played
suddenly the sun shines in

hazy eyed though I cant sleep
neath a candle burning low
a painting brush in my right hand
and the evening sky begins to cry

so slow
she begins to cry
so slow

I’m painting perfect melodies
all sung in perfect time
with perfect smiles when all the while
there's a little girl entwined

in showing you her loveliness
hiding neath her colours sage
with a smile she lets her heart out
behind violet eyes and emerald skies she plays

oh she dances in the rain
she plays

I’m all awash and seeping
deeper love neath blackest lash
you captured me in keeping
all yourself in sweet Nicholas-ness

and undercover glances
what you didn’t see me find
I stumbled on a treasure
and on certain winds you hear me sing

so fine
oh you hear me sing
so fine

she dances in the rain
oh she plays

and the evening sky
begins to cry
slow
she begins to cry
so slow
she dances in the rain
and the evening sky begins to cry
and the evening sky begins to cry
and the evening sky begins to cry
and the evening sky begins to cry
and the evening sky begins to cry....




Unseal Reveal  

Winter chill is at my door again
Hard to tell where my skin begins
and where warmth ends
I ain’t answering no call
I ain’t answering no call

Today’s the day to withdraw again
Solitude I choose
My company I can’t refrain
And it’s your words on which I draw
It’s your words on which I draw

You wrote
Unseal reveal
There are snakes entwined
This place of rhythm,
where I rest

You wrote Unseal reveal
There are snakes entwined there

We can dance here sister
We can dance here sister
We can dance here sister

Scarlet ravishes the sky to the west
A staircase to the sun
She hides behind the clouds their grey

And I’m safe within these walls
I’m so happy ‘tween these walls

To the girl who wrote the words
of which I sing
It’s for you I dream
It’s for you that I am thinking

and Your poetry’s my score
Your poetry’s my score

You wrote Unseal reveal
There are snakes entwined
This place of rhythm,
where I rest

You wrote Unseal reveal
There are snakes entwined there

We can dance here sister
We can dance here sister
We can dance here sister…..




so long song 

 we are what might have been
a question mark scribbled in green
this my love is you and me...

we are where the turquoise meets the blue
somewhere between the 3 and the 2
this my love is me and you...

let me go
its not me you want this we know
and
when you call
I cant help but pick up the phone...

I’m dressed in white
and I sing to the night of this song
so long my love
I shall fly on the wings of a dove
so far, so wide
to sing under Sinai skies
of you and I....
this our so long song

we are could be stars
somewhere between venus and mars...
the space, between the bars

and we
we are the promise of love
we exist between below and above
yes we are the promise of love

set me free
we both know its not me
cause across the seas
you have a queen.....

I’m dressed in white...




The Recordings

it's all honey
he said its all honey
why do you cry
princess today

she said its all sunny
why does the sky
cry to me grey

he bathed her in water
she sank in the warm
his skin on her made

he cradled her small
she lay in the last
light of the day

wild forces run through my veins
wild horses run through my days

he said its all honey
why do you cry
princess today

she said its all sunny
why does the sky
cry to me grey

he said he slept i
n the scent
of one beautiful
pink haired babe

she gave him one flower
alone on the bed
the bed where they lay

wild forces run through my veins
wild horses run through my days
wild forces run through my veins
wild horses run through my days ....
