Daylight’s wasting

washington square’s right up the street
that was the place where we would meet
Outside the dog run
Don’t be late
Most of the time I’d sit and wait
Looking at people passing by
A customer’s bagging his supply
Just as you thought she wouldn’t show
There she comes running, don’t you know it
Daylight’s wasting
Daylight’s fair, but got it wrong
He never did justice to my songs
He did more for me and that’s a fact
When he went and stabbed me in the back
So i’ve gotta do now, don’t you know
What I should’ve done five years ago
daylights wasting
daylight
yeah, I can taste it
as it falls from the sky

————————————————————————
Tears from a stone

In the dawning hour
break of day
Strikes an old church tower
A mile away
based on old transcriptions
From a song
we’ll be mining
Tears from a stone
As the morning daylight
enters here
We’ll be adding curses
to a prayer
Taking notes down
as we go along
yeah, we’ll be mining
tears from a stone
You shoot the blame out
like a star
that never asked us
Who we are
You shoot a wish out
To the sky
It never asked us
where we hide
… where we hide

Velvet

Her skin is like velvet
Her face is cut from stone
Her eyes when she’s smiling
Will never reach home
But hear how she sings
Her touch would be tender
Her lps would be warm
but when we’re toghether
I’m always alone
But hear how she sings
Her skin is like velvet…
So I went to her home
her place, like a palace
With things you can’t own
Her skin is like velvet
And hear how she sings

————————————————————————

Foolish

Woke up
To a lonely type of day
I’m running out of reasons
I should stay
Put your arms around me
What can I say
Leave me where you found me
Then walk away
I’m staying through to friday
Then I’m gone
Unreachable by letters
or by phone
But one day I’ll be calling
way down the road, baby
Stop me then from falling
Don’t let me go
One day you will know
I’ll be damned if I ever
will let you go
And it keeps me together
to know
I let her slip away
That was foolish
I bow to the ovation
in my head
Put your arms around me
One for the road, baby
Leave me where you found me
Then walk away

Half an hours worth

Oh how, I wouldn’t mind
Half an hours worth
of feeling fine
Oh yeah, I won’t pretend
half an hour
would be heaven sent
Once in a while
I felt a smile
Oh why, can’t you see…
(it’s okay)
Those clouds will pass away
Go see a friend of mine
(it’s alright)
Stay out right through the night

————————————————————————

Underground

I crossed the town
Underground
You turn, turn away
When I’m there
people stare
So I turn away
Oh Joan, we should’ve stayed together
It’s wrong, your friend don’t make you better
I crossed the town
Underground
You turn, turn away
When I’m there
people stare
So I turn away
I know, for her my heart will weep
I know, Hey Joan, I’m in too deep
From my head down to my toes
there are places you should know
From my hips down to my knees
What peculiarities
So take me down
Underground
Don’t turn, turn away
tell me how
help me now
you turn
turn away

————————————————————————

Get up now

You don’t know how people talk
They say it’s in the way she walks
Friends come up to you and say
I’ve never seen you act this way
Get up now
Get up now
She comes through a ring of fire
Preys on your heart’s desires
She rules your woild entire
she’ll laugh as you walk right by her
she believes in what you do
Know exactly what you’re going through
she tries hard to be best
she’ll break down before she rests
Get up now
Get up now
Your down fall will take her higher
don’t ask what goes on inside her
what could this world deny her
She cuts like a piece of wire
something grabbed a hold of me
I don’t know what it was
what could this world deny her?
She’ll laugh as you walk right by her

 ————————————————————————

Still I’m on your side

Maybe I can’t see
All of that you hide
mm, baby
still I’m on your side
I can’t really know
for without a sound you smile
mm, baby
Still I’m on yourside
Should I step away
Should I bow out now
And go about my day
what would happen here
If I ran my fingers
gently through her hair
Maybe I can’t be
The one tath makes it right
MM babe
Still I’m on your side

————————————————————————

We will never forget

We will never forget
those times
we will never gorget
our lives
Head in a cloud
ears to the ground
we’re making the wind rush by
but my baby
well, she don’t know me
for all of the years gone by
we will never forget
those times
we will never forget
our lives
we will walk through the fields
all right
we will know how it feels
all right
your face to the wind
eyes to the rain
you’re holding your head up high
but my baby
well , she won’t show me
For all of the tears we’ve cried
I will never forget her
standing there
we will never belong
elsewhere…
but the summers are good
oh yeah
nothing misunderstood oh no
head in a cloud
ears to the ground
we’re making the wind rush by
but my baby
well, she don’t know me
For all of the tears we cried
we will never forget
those times
take a look as the clouds
go drifting by
we will walk through the fields
all night
we will never forget
our lives

————————————————————————

Raise your sleepy head

You hide from the day
Don’t be this way
raise your sleepy head
old clothes fill the bed…
Use me instead
Yeah, raise your sleepy head
You picked words that
I’d fall for
Why say something
So uncalled for
Little things that I’d die for
You make it clear now what to try for
this morning has come
…will soon be done
so raise your sleepy head
our weekend away
starts today
yeah, raise your sleepy head

————————————————————————

Mary is coming

Something in the morning
Something in the air
Although she’s right above me
I don’t think she knows I’m there
I raise my hands to hold you
tie you down
keeping you where
Empty lines i’ve told you
disappear
and right as I’m there
mary is coming
mary is coming
mary is coming
everybody’s saying
one day at a time
you never minded waiting
oh, but make it in my prime
mary never shows you
what she likes
you can pretend
mary never blows you
but that’s alright
‘cause what I like is when
mary is coming
mary is coming
mary is coming
