Dusty Roads

Gift of vision, gift of sound
Throw the blanket on the ground
And the glory, yes the glory shone around

Show you who I am
Tell you what I’ve seen
I’ve come to share with you my dream

I go down dusty roads
To the place where the old house once stood
Back home where the fair winds blow
And once again your smile
Will reach your eyes

Shed my tears and walked away
Lived to fight another day
And I put my hands into the fire
And watched the flames grow higher

And now you’ve gone without a trace
There’s no one can take your place
And all I have is the memory of your face
I go down dusty roads

To the place where the old house once stood
Back home where the fair winds blow
And once again your smile
Will reach your eyes
Lightning dance beneath the gathering clouds
All of the darkness cannot put out

Language of Love

Sky is torn clouds are burst
Injured feelings that I nurse
Language of love

Every line every verse
The pain of losing you is worse
Language of love

Keep our own counsel and act on advice
Shivering in our kingdom of ice
Unanswered prayers and intentions were good
If I could I’d teach you the language of love

Shouts and screams
Fading dreams
Tragedy behind the scenes
There’s no one gains, chaos reigns
Things could never be the same
Cos we don’t speak the language of love

One more chance one more try
There’ll be no more tears left to cry
Our bridges burn we build our walls
Baby how much further can we fall

Keep our own counsel and act on advice
Shivering in our kingdom of ice
Unanswered prayers and intentions were good
If I could I’d teach you the language of love

Shouts and screams
Fading dreams
Tragedy behind the scenes
There’s no one gains, chaos reigns
Things could never ever be the same
Cos we don’t speak the language of love
Anymore

A Day in the Sun

Woven into time and space
Never to be erased
Surrounded by love
And free from pain

Forest fires funeral pyres
The rains could not quell my desires
Im searching for that elusive Day in the sun

The wind never lies
True love never dies
And hope springs eternal
We now realise

I heard you say
That everything would be fine
As we stared at the sun
For the very last time

Together like water we flow
Inside us all theres a tree that grows
Hoping for a day in the sun
Money never sleeps
And doesnt trickle down
We all pay the price
On the merry go round

A day in the sun
How to make sense in a world of no sense
Dont have to pretend to be somebody else

Home

Home no place like home

Born out of fear we run with the pack
All our defences have started to crack
To being sad and lonely there ain’t no going back
Will you keep a light on for me?

Home no place like home

Trying to walk before I could crawl
Running upstairs and climbing the walls
Desperate to answer the rallying call
Will you keep a light on for me?

Speaks to my soul
I don’t believe I know
Wherever your love takes me
And if the journey breaks me
Home no place like home

Dream of a mansion live in a shack
The very foundations are under attack
We made a promise and there’s no going back
Will you keep a light on for me?

Arms Open Wide

V is for vendetta
But it’s not the mask I wear
If I could believe in love once more
If only you would care

The perfect storm is getting close
Vicious thorn and bloody rose
Anguished lovers tortured souls
Stranded by the rising tide
For all the pain and all the hurt I caused you I apologise

If it’s time to say goodbye
One thing I hope was true
That I was worthy of your love
And mine did honour you
So my love you are free
And if it means you’ll be happy
You know I will stand aside
And I’ll be waiting here with my arms open wide

If my wish was granted
And all my demons slain
I would not hesitate
To have you back again

And every passing moment is a chance to turn it round
The lantern lays broken on the ground
And as you turn to leave I start to grieve
And all that’s left is bittersweet

If it’s time to say goodbye
One thing I hope was true
That I was worthy of your love
And mine did honour you
So my love you are free
And if it means you’ll be happy
You know I will stand aside
And I’ll be waiting here with my arms open wide

Nadir

Traumatised if I could weep
I lie awake in a dreamless sleep
Nothing to be done just waiting

The love I gave was not a duty
My gift to you was a thing of beauty
Holding up a mirror to our times

Fatally flawed right from the start
Wounded my broken heart
Only hope left in the jar
This time we’ve gone too far

You said you could never love me like a lover should
All the friends of yesteryear seem somehow
Like they are strangers to me now
Final curtain one last bow
My own words have struck me down

My motivation was to prove you wrong
Was it the singer or was it the song
The lure of temptation you know was too strong
If only we could get along

You said you could never love me like a lover should

Spinning wheels and laser beams
They’re messing up, they’re messing all my schemes
I saw the devil, the devil was in my dreams

Separation you know it draws near
Wisdom fell on deaf ears
The only way is up from the nadir

Ignore at your peril the danger signs
Playing with fire in a room filled with dynamite
Delusions of grandeur sucking up the light
Watch a dying star explode upon the canvas of the night

Cross My Heart

My life is hanging by a thread
Haunted by the words you said

Never felt so lonely

Love lies bleeding virtue is stained
There’s only me left to stamp out the flames
A prisoner in a moral maze
The sonic boom still resonates

Nobody ever pulled my strings like you do
Nobody ever spread my wings like you do
Speak no evil and tell no lies
I cross my heart and I hope to die

A moment of weakness in a battle of wits
Fell to the floor in a hail of bullets
All hopes of salvation vanish in the mist

Never felt so lonely

Watch our kingdom come undone
Everybody has to serve someone
A crime of passion fair-weather friend
The past catches up with us all in the end

Nobody ever pulled my strings like you do
I love you more than you realise
Cross my heart and hope to die
Looking back to the time when we knew love

Drivetime

Newspaper vendor said there’s nothing to pay
There is no bad news today
The owner of the car wash said there’s no cars to clean
And the taxi driver said there’s nothing left to dream

Into the city of lights the passengers ride
The traffic lights are green for go
All that glitters is gold

Into the city tonight the people take flight
The speed of life it starts to slow
All that glitters is gold

Drivetime switch on the morning zoo
Sing along and think of you
Drivetime it seems to slow right down
I’ve got that Friday feeling
Oh it feels like I’m freewheeling
Yeah they’re playing our song

If it feels right then it is right something so good must be real

Patiently I make my way through the crowds
Those avenues and those elegant streets
Each step that I take brings me nearer to you
I don’t wanna wake up, wanna wake up in a city that never sleeps

Lions of stone mannequins come alive
And the day gives way to the creatures of the night
Pavements of strangers follow the signs
Reciting their mantra through the bars of a rhyme

Drivetime switch on the morning zoo
Sing along and think of you
Drivetime it seems to slow right down
I’ve got that Friday feeling
Oh it feels like I’m freewheeling
Yeah they’re playing our song
If it feels right then it is right something so good must be real

Long Time Coming

Stayed up all night drinking champagne
From all we knew we ran away
Raised a glass to absent friends
Hope these times will never end

Just like summer turn to fall
I could not forsake you at all
Sleepy winter gives way to spring
It’s been a long time coming

We know that love’s a crying game
Never got wet as we danced in the rain
And here we are starting out again
You are my equal we are the same

Lovers made it through the night
When morning comes the sun will rise
This is our awakening
It’s been a long time coming

It’s been a long
It’s been a long
It’s been a long long time
It began with a spark
Chasing shadows in the park
We found each other in the dark

It’s you that I see before I close my eyes
We really did have the time of our lives
All those fears were unrealised
I still believe in paradise

We can’t change all that went before
Faith is when you don’t hold on to anything no more
Let the miracle begin
Oh it’s been a long time coming
It’s been a long
It’s been a long
It’s been a long long time
It began with a spark
Chasing shadows in the park
We found each other in the dark

Temple of Love

Holding a new-born for the first time
See eternity in their eyes
All sense of the sacred don’t lose your way
Good things come to those who wait
Treasure each moment it’s only a ride
From ourselves we cannot hide
Love is a teardrop on the cheek of time

Temple of love

Come to our senses stop all the fight
We can bathe the world in light
You left me a gift so I’m not afraid
The gift of your life I will celebrate

The miracle of love we damn with faint praise
On a tiny blue dot floating in space
Why can’t tomorrow be today
I’ll come back for you to show me the way

Temple of love

In my hour of need
You are the air that I breathe
Heaven is state of grace
Hell the truth learned too late
On the wind you rest a while
We shall be reconciled
Love is a teardrop on the cheek of time
