Waiting on a Word
Standing on the highway
Watchin' all the cars go by
I've been searching the horizon
Wind is blowing dust in my eyes

You've been gone such a very long time
Seems like a hundred years have passed

I left my heart down at the pawnshop
Can't afford it anymore, no more
Now I'm feeling such a space inside of me
Every time there's someone at the door

I'm not living till I hear you on the line
and then you got to fly so very fast

Ooh, waiting on a word
Ooh, fires still burning
Ooh, baby turn around
Ooh, you gotta
Come on home

All those promises
That we drove

Together
With nowhere to go

Well we started out so fine
Now the flame is all but dying

Ooh, waiting on a word . . .

Willpower
What a lot of talk about it
Ooh such a lot of talk about willpower
Ooh talkin' talkin' talkin' willpower
Desire
Talkin' talkin' talkin' talkin' talkin' about willpower

Tell the world how well it's working
Never say how much it's hurtin'
Easy sayin' what to do
Easy if it isn't you

Willpower
What a lot of talk about it
Running head first down that slide
Burnin' up so bad inside
So much bullshit on the front
Give 'em more of what they want

Willpower
Lady willpower
Willpower
Lady willpower

Ships in the Night
Ships in the night
Searching for day
Beckoning lips
So far away
Shadows adrift
Hiding from light
Ships in the night
Sometimes you feel
Then again you can't
Morning comes down
Soon after the dance
Time slowly drowns
Streets so unreal
Needing to heal

Harbours of love
Shining so calm
Far beyond pain
Outside of harm
Why must we move
Into the rain
Again . . .
Ships in the night
Riding the waves
Yesterday slips
Into the haze
Memories ripped
Sliding from sight
Ships in the night

Maybe you win,
Maybe you lose
Future seems like
Just another ruse
Sirens invite
Us to begin
Come right on in

Harbours of love
Shining so calm
Far beyond pain
Outside of harm
Why must we move
Out of the sun
Into the rain
Again . . .

Peaces of East
They walk on my head,
They run through my bed

I hear those voices everywhere
Screamin' ragged down the road
Like a river's overflowed
They got mud in their hair
They dance in your face
They're wrecking my place
No medical care

Pieces of East, nieces of beast, there's no retreat
Sweating with heat, military feet, out in the streets
We've got the least, where is the feast, always repeats . . .

They yell in my dreams
They bang big tureens

They say they love their nightmare

Falling happy into war
Like their brothers gone before
Deprived of their share

Pieces of East, nieces of beast, there's no retreat
Sweating with heat, military feet, out in the streets
We've got the least, where is the feast, always repeats . . .

They dance in my brain
They drive me insane

I see their faces everywhere
Dying happy hand in hand
Why don't they take a stand

They love their nightmare

 

 

 


 
 

Close Enough for Love
Close enough
Close enough for love
Will the pieces flow together
Close enough
Fitted like a glove
People can be friends and lovers

Spending the time
Feeling that I'm
Living outside love
Without love
Nothing can grow

Close enough
Close enough for love
Play the changes through together
Feel it love
Growing in my heart
Watch the fire start
To burn love

Spending the time
Feeling that I'm
Living without love
Without love
Nothing tastes right
Without love
Without love

Close enough
Close enough for love
When push comes to shove you find love
Close enough
Close enough for love
People can be friends and lovers

G.B. Dawn Blues
Sun movin slowly through the street
Birds singin down it's time to eat
Watch people walkin in their sleep

We were together doin fine
Out on the road drinkin that wine
Livin much faster than our time

You made a bargain with the man
Said let them catch me if you can
Soon he was playin in the band

World got you up one afternoon
Busted you down and pretty soon
There you were starin at the moon

Sun movin slowly through the street
Birds singin down it's time to eat
Watch people walkin in their sleep

Criminality
I get a little tired when the sun goes down
I get a little wired livin' underground
Fascinating fire ain't no one around
Feeling some desire
Nothing going down

I get a little tired
Tired
Feel it comin' down
Come down

Now the night has come
And the flame has gone
And I heard them say it
On the wireless
It's so cold inside
There's no place to hide
On the wireless
What they said was true
Life don't wait for you
And it's gone
Gone

Childsong
She shakes her head and says
That her last word is spoken
Tumbling down
Something she found
Where happiness lay
Not far away
Hear it now

You got so many ways
When the last chains are broken
Tumbling down
You hear a new sound
It's dark into day
not far away
Hear it now

When summer leaves
The tangles that it weaves
are floating in the wind
Hard to begin
To get back in
You stay but it's never in only one piece
You got to find release

He runs away and plays
his laughter's just awoken
Tumbling down
The eyes of a clown
And truth sings today
Not far away
Hear it now
