You had on blue jeans. Your eyes couldn't hide anything. I saw you breathing. And I saw you staring out in space. I next saw you, you was at a party. Though you was a queen, oh so flirty. I cam against. Didn't say excuse. You knew what I was doing. We looked very fine 'cause we were leaving. Like Saint Joan, doing a cool, cool, jerk. Oh I want you, Oh I want you... Like a kangaroo... @SONG: Song to the Siren On the floating, shipless, oceans I did all my best to smile til your singing eyes and fingers drew me loving into your eyes. And you sang "Sail to me, sail to me, Let me enfold you." Here I am, here I am waiting to hold you. Did I dream you dreamed about me? Were you here when I was full sail? Now my foolish boat is leaning, broken lovelorn on your rocks. For you sang "Touch me not, touch me not, Come back tomorrow." Oh my heart, oh my heart shies from the sorrow. I'm as puzzled as a newborn child. I'm as riddled as the tide. Should I stand amid the breakers? Or shall I lie with death my bride? Here me sing: "Swim to me, swim to me, Let me enfold you." Here I am, Here I am, waiting to hold you." @SONG: Holocaust Your eyes are almost dead Can't get out of bed. And you can't sleep. You're sitting down to dress and you're a mess. You look in the mirror. You look in your eyes. Say you realise. Everybody goes leaving those who fall behind. Everbody goes as far as they can, they just don't care. They stood on the stairs laughing at your errors. Your mothers dead she said "Don't be afraid." Your mothers dead. You're on your own. She's in her bed. Everybody goes leaving those who fall behind. Everybody goes as far as they can, they just don't care. You're a wasted face. You're a sad eyed lie. You're a holocaust. @SONG: Fond Affections Fond affections are never said. They're only sung in songs. I never was naive enough to know when I was wrong. There's no light at the end of it all. Let's all sit down and cry. There's no light at the beginning. Let's all sit down and cry. Now it's time to say goodbye. Now it's being forced upon you. It's just the person by your side remaining distant. Now the winter's growing close. The days are getting older. I can tell by your face that your heart is getting colder. There's no light at the end of it all. Let's all sit down and cry. There's no light at the beginning. Let's all sit down and cry. @SONG: Another Day The kettle's on, the sun has gone, another day. She oiffers me Tibetan tea on a flower tray. She's at the door, she wants to score. She really needs to say. I loved you a long time ago, you know. Where the wind's own forget-me-nots blow. But I just couldn't let myself go. Not knowing what on earth there was to know. But I wish that I had 'cause I'm feeling so sad. That I never had one of your children. Across the room, inside the tomb, a chance has waxed and waned. The night is young, why are we so hung up in each other's jeans? I must take her. I must make her while the dove domains. And feel the juice run as she flies. Run my wings under her sighs. As the flames of eternity rise. To lick us with the first born lash of dawn. Oh really my dear I can't see what we fear. Standing here with ourselves in between us. And at the door, we can't say more, than just another day. And without a sound, I turn around, and walk away. @SONG: Not Me It may be as you say. I'll admit. But you don't sound convinced. Between the surface you and the surface me. You didn't touch me. It may be as well that, I didn't see the point. You didn't touch me I suppose it's just hollow. No idea- no spark When I thought that in order to survive. You need to touch me. All of the me's.
