Bloom

I’ve been passing by time in the house on the hill
Looking out from my window everyway is winter still
There’s a roof on this world we need to lift off
To let all the rain ????????  life

Heading out from the winter the spring moves so fast
It cuts through the earth and nothing stands in its path
And then all the joy and juice and the dew
And nothings old cos everything’s made new

Let all the birds of the month of May sing in tune
Let go of all the wind and rain and gloom
Let’s gather every bit of life in one room
And let it all bloom

When this years gone dark and dark and old
When the night closes its door to keep your spirits in love
Your autumn can taste and smell the spring
But all of life ????? breathes and ?????

Let all the birds of the month of May sing in tune
Let go of all the wind and rain and gloom
Let’s gather every bit of life in one room and let it all bloom

So let’s shift the old sun til there's nothing left
Tell the rivers to walk so the seas can swell
Tell the cold blast of the north to go and go soon

Let all the birds of the month of May sing in tune
Let go of all the wind and rain and gloom
Let’s gather every bit of life in one room
And let it all bloom

 

All Of This Or Nothing At All

Walking hard walking slow taking up that time until you go
Climbing up that track deep into the dark
Everything we’ve ever said
All the days we’ve ever spent
So much joy we’ve missed from lack of innocence
Like the wild flowers of wintertime
All the leaves the wind has stolen
Colours that we long forgotten things we should of known

Yeah all of this or nothing at all
Oh all of this or nothing at all

Take them letters leave the pain
Let loose the losses take all the gains
That’s not possible in our world
Sometimes I wish it could be so
Everything you’ve ever said
All the days we’ve ever spent
So much joy we missed through lack of innocence
Like the wild flowers of wintertime
All the leaves the wind has stolen
Colours that we’ve long forgotten things we should of known

Yeah all of this or nothing at all
Oh all of this or nothing at all

Everything we've ever said
All the days we’ve ever spent
So much joy we missed from lack of innocence
Like the wildflowers of wintertime
All the leaves the wind has stolen
Colours that we’ve long forgotten
Things we should of known

Yes all of this or nothing at all
Yes all of this or nothing at all


Just Come Home Now

I opened your letter imagining your life your place and the weather there
You see its pretty but you're missing something
Cause its summer there its creeping cold here
So I wrote you straight back and I put in it to you
If you're worried about anything please don't think on it

Just come home now don't worry about anything
Come home now bring yourself in
Just come home now don't worry about anything
Come home now bring yourself in

Don't worry about the journey the distance the words before you went
There's nothing left now it’s Christmas and all the money's spent
Just come home now just come home

Your dad put up the tree and I've been out shopping on Queens street
We watched meet me in saint Louis and I thought of you
I hear your friends are meeting on Hogmanay outside the central station
One last drink then home to bring the bells in
If there's one thing I know it's how I miss you tonight
So do this one thing for me now and be on that flight

Just come home now don't worry about anything
Come home now bring yourself in
Just come home now don't worry about anything
Come home now bring yourself in

Don't worry about the journey the distance the words before you went
There's nothing left now it’s Christmas and all the money's spent
Just come home now just come home
Just come home now just come home

There's 
no room for fear anymore
We can only do what we do best
You get me right through anything
I'd let the snow swept streets do the rest

Just come home now don't worry about anything
Come home now bring yourself in

Don't worry about the journey the distance the words before you went
There's nothing left now it's Christmas and all the money's spent
Just come home now just come home
Just come home now just come home


Scent and Cigarettes

What did I do
What did I say
That you took everything I had to give
Then went away
Cos I’ve been alone
But not like this before
Oh no

All you left me with is scent and cigarettes
Now everything else I own means so much less

I’d phone I’d call I’d write
If I knew your address
Now all I have is your perfume and the memory of your sweet tenderness

Was as easy to slip away as to break my heart
Why did you smile and laugh and kiss
And pull our love apart

Was there nothing that you missed did you know I’d not get over this
All you left me with is scent and cigarettes
Now everything I own means so much less

I’d phone I’d call I’d write if I knew your address
Yes yes yes

But all I have is your perfume and the memory of your sweet tenderness
Scent and cigarettes
Scent and cigarettes
Scent and cigarettes


God Gives You Dreams

I found a train just need a ticket
Destination I need to pick it
I'd have a job if I committed
Or I did some work but I didn't

I know that feeling from a distance
Sunshine’s there but there's something missing
Got some directions but I wasn’t listening
My friends all said it's not my business

I got in trouble for gazing out the window
And staring out those far away scenes
I kept wondering what all this lying means
If there's something pulling and you just can't let go
No matter how hard it seems
Just remember god gave you dreams

Got no plan I've got no mission
I can take this life I'm living
I keep asking and I keep thinking
This worlds for wandering this worlds for living

I got in trouble for gazing out the window
And staring out those far away scenes
I kept wondering what all this lying means
If there's something pulling and you just can't let go
No matter how hard it seems
Just remember god gives you dreams

I got tired of waiting on tomorrow
To see what everybody else is seeing
No one seems to know which way the wind will be
If there’s something pulling and you just can't let go
No matter how hard it seems
Just remember god gives you dreams

Gives you dreams
Gives you dreams
Gives you dreams
Gives you dreams


More People More

Ohh ohhh ohhh ohhh
And people mean so much more
Ohhh and people Ohhh and people Ohhh and people Ohhh and people
People mean so much more

The sun the snow the mountain tops
The wind that crosses fields and stops
These buildings halfway to the sky
A flame that bursts alive then dies
The endless motions of the sea
The months that follow tirelessly and the moon

Ohhh and people ohhh and people ohhh and people ohhh and people
Yeah people mean so much more

No myths remains on painted walls
Unmapped places only unrecalled
The half-remembered childhood kiss
Some sweet forgotten melodies
I’ll sigh as swallows dive and soar
For colours that exist no more and wait

Ohhh ohhhh ohhh ohhh
Ohhh and people Ohhh and people Ohhh and people Ohhh and people
And people mean so much more
And people mean so much more


Just Fine

Staring from the pavement at some poor dog in the road
Wishing for his eyes to open
And a women’s watching TV trying to recognise a face
Of a man she hoped she’d never see again

There’s no other exit there’s no better way
Your gonna do the hardest thing you’ve ever done
This man’s lost his memory this women’s lost her sons
They’ve both been waiting for a long time

Someday this’ll pass and mostly be forgotten
You’ll get along just fine
There’s no getting round it there’s no turning back
And call the righteous and the wretched and wronged

The Hindus and the Hutus the masters and the slaves
The hangman and the criminal the cowards and the brave
They’ll get along just fine
They’ll get along just fine
They’ll get along just fine
