Riding On The Tide Of Love

I was born in the deepest and darkest of monthsa
And the fields were all frozen and raw
I was raised in the dawn of the hydrogen bomb
Ready for shock and awe
I was wakened by fear in a terrible year
When the ground opened up its jaws
And the sight of the dead coming out of the earth
Scared me so much I ran off
Hiding
Taking shelter
From the wind, from the wind
I was waiting
For the world
To begin

But I’m living, and I’m breathing and I’m real
And I’m sliding and and I’m clinging
But you’re here
And I’m riding on the tide of love!

One night I got caught by the cinema lights
As I tried to get home in the dark
There was a terrible boy bringing terror and noise
And the screams echoed over the park
And the thought of that drug thin blade of a man
Made ever bone in my body shake
I was barely alive from my nine to five
I was needing to stay awake

Hoping
That you’d
Hear my cry, hear my cry
I was longing
For love
Inside

But I’m living, and I’m breathing and I’m real
And I’m sliding and and I’m clinging
But you’re here
And I’m riding on the tide of love!


She Loved The Snow

Long slow days
it was barely dark 
Even as we slept
You told me
Wild winter follows
To pay back this haloed heaven

Picking through the bones of the day
So pleased her world could easily be changed
She loved the snow
She loved the snow

Ground lay hard
Under paths
We had walked
One spring day
Our earth transformed
Under a late, spring fall

Picking through the bones of the day
So pleased her world could easily be changed
She loved the snow
She loved the snow


Nothing's Changed

There nothing that you know
Nothing you’ll be told
Nothing here you can hold on to

There’s nothing in my face
For you to read for you to trace
Nothing to realise even if you want to

I’ve been here so many times before
So many times you won’t believe
What is it you really want to learn?
You know I can only tell you if you trust me

That
Nothing’s changed
There’s nothing to be scared of, no reason to fear
Cause
Nothing’s changed
We’re not the people that we were, but my love for you remains
Nothing’s changed

Nothing I’m holding back
No love, no cash no facts
Nothing to make you mad or stoned or crazy

There’s nothing in my pockets
No flowers, hearts or lockets
There’s no secrets I been holding on to lately

I was once a jealous man
Too much in love with love to be true
But I let go of everything
My heart can tell you true

That
Nothing’s changed
There’s nothing to be scared of, no reason to fear
Cause
Nothing’s changed
We’re not the people that we were, but my love for you remains
Nothing’s changed

Look Up

If you can’t win you should know
That losing’s not the worse thing
Say you don’t know where to begin
Then this one time try to start again
After the tears and the rage and the shouting
You let him in again wondering why it is you doubted him

Then on a Monday morning when you’re driving to work
And dawn breaks over you and it’s making it worse
You’ll know that it’s over
You’ll know that it’s over

If you can’t say what it is
That’s hurting, that’s the worst thing
If you’re carrying the blame that should be his
Lay it down and walk away from him
After the years and the cages that surrounded you
You can be free again from everything that bound you

Then on a Monday morning when you’re driving to work
And dawn breaks over you and it’s making it worse
You’ll know that it’s over
You’ll know that it’s over

Look up to see the colours of the spring
Look up and see all that you’ve been missing
Look up and take in everything
Look up, lift your head, lift your head up

Cause next Monday morning when you’re driving to work
You’ll be glad it was you who discovered it first
Cause you’ll know that it’s over
You know that it’s over
You know that it’s over
You know that it’s over


Time

Time
If I did everything wrong
Time
You did everything right
Time
So what are we gonna do
Time
With the rest of it?
Time
What do I need to know?
Time
Do I need to trust some more?
Time
Or is there just enough road
For us both

There’s only words to say we ever were
I hear your voice inside me saying (singing)
Telling me there’s still time
Is there still time

Time
The noise has died down
Time
And everyone’s gone
Time
You’re standing beside me
Time
So here we are then, facing
Time
And all that I know
Time
And all that I love
Time
Is here in this moment of (time)

There’s only words to say we ever were
I hear your voice inside me saying (saying)
Telling me there’s still time
Is there still time

Walking ways and ways to go
Understanding what we know
Time to look, time to hide
And time

There’s only words to say we ever were
I hear your voice inside me saying (saying)
Telling me there’s still time
Is there still time

Send A Note Out

Somebody’s angry
Somebody’s hurting
They didn’t look you in the eye
So now you’re worried

There’s a corner
Where you used to meet your friends
But it’s gone now
These days it feels like nothing seems to mend

always, always,
always, always
Send a note out
Tell them how you feel
Send a note out
You know that something’s needed
Send a note out

I’m going to write it down
Don’t need no Valentine’s Day
I’m going to tell you I feel now
Gonna say what I’m gonna say

always, always,
always, always
Send a note out
Tell them how you feel
Send a note out
You know that something’s needed
Send a note out

Some houses and special things
Can slip away with a cold hard wind
a cold hard wind

I don’t love you any more
That’s the worst thing I could ever say
So if it’s something that I’m thinking
If it’s something that I’m feeling…..

always, always,
always, always
Send a note out
Tell them how you feel
Send a note out
You know that something’s needed
Send a note out

Not Gonna Be That Girl

I saw her standing beneath the street lamp
Gold beams falling down on her hair
Made it look like
She was wearing a halo
She was surely heaven sent
But i was smart enough to know
Oh no, that’s not what it meant
She’s not gonna be that girl

She’s gonna be what she is
And what she is I want to know
Like the back of my hand
Not at all like I planned
Nothing like what this man
Thought he wanted
But now I want it

I saw her standing in our kitchen light
The evening shadows falling on her face
Made her look like
Some kind of princess in a poor man’s house
When she smiles I think of diamonds
And surely she wants out
But she’s not gonna be that girl

She’s gonna be what she is
And what she is I want to know
Like the back of my hand
Not at all like I planned
Nothing like what this man
Thought he wanted

She’s gonna stand where she stands
Where she stands is gonna change
Changing me in every way
Filling up my nights and days
She’s the reason that i say
Thank God I was wrong
In what I thought I wanted
She’s not gonna be that girl

She’s not gonna be what you dreamed up
Or the one that you’ve had cleaned up
But now you’re teamed up

She’s not gonna be everything you wanted
So be careful how you flaunt it
She’s what you didn’t know till you got it

She’s not gonna be the one who’ll change you
Make up new arrangements
Don’t you see that there’s no danger

She’s not gonna be yours to hold forever
No, not unless you let her
Go with her to make things better


It's Still Early

The rain had made
A map
Round where
We lay
A while, that day
Late summer

No one saw us come
No one caught us
I guess we disappeared from view

Gone, to everybody else
And all the people said
They were much too young
Gone, but we know what we had
And no one understood that
It’s still early

The sun has gone
Behind
The trees
Too late
For home, we’ll stay
Till morning

If they saw us come
They’d imagine
How we’d disappear so soon

Gone, to everybody else
And all the people said
They were much too young
Gone, but we know what we had
And no one understood that
It’s still early
