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

Like a lover should

 

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

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

Nobody ever spread my wings 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

Oh 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

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
