Sacred Female
You make the man
Helping hands are holier than lips that pray
Welcome to wherever you are
Anne Frank
Whatever happened to Sameem Ali
Ave Maria
Role model
Keep my love closer to your heart
Guilt kills
A confession
Avida dollars
Wind palace

You make the man
Be the steel of my right hand
A confidant to understand
Around on downs
A place to dream
You are the staff on which I lean

You are the base on which I build
You are the food on which I fill
You are the sun
You are the moon
All seasons start and end with you

Tell them, we are coming
We are on our way
Say your prayer

You know
I know
I can feel it

Working together living in the funky town blues
Do good then disappear

Helping hands are holier than lips that pray
Helping hands are holier than lips that pray
When she needed love were you there for her

Was she your companion
True and constant friend
Never left you lonely
From dawn till daylights end
She with quiet footsteps
Walks ever closer to me
Follows like a shadow
Her name is memory

She suffered your losses
For her children she did bear
Carried your crosses
When you were in her care
Troubles of the present
She sees through different eyes
Dreamy days of long ago
My blessing in disguise

Once again she is young and she is free
All she ever was is still a part of me

Welcome to wherever you are
My how you have grown
You have come into your own
Welcome to wherever you are
Wherever you are today

Welcome you made it this far
You have become your own star
How wonderful you are
Welcome glad that you realised
Your wings were meant to beat
Against the skies

With eyes that look just like mine
Evolution design
Tangents and cosines
We are moving with the times
To opine talking free
In sweet harmony
Wherever you are
Hope travels far

Across oceans of night
And through the deep black calm
Till we have learned how to rebuild shattered worlds

Turn on Tune in Drop out
It’s true certain most true
I remember things that never happened to you
It’s true without lying
I remember things that are yet to come true

Smile a child may be watching
Turn on Tune in Drop out
Celebrate before the lights go out.

Anne Frank
So we went down to Old Amsterdam

Let me tell you all about a girl
Who left the world a better place than she found it
Let me tell you all about a girl
Who makes the world rejoice when it hears her name
All she had was all she left behind
Her life was ended while she was so young
May the winds of love that whisper softly
Carry her to heaven where she belongs
But her truth goes marching on

Her story is the glow that warms the earth
Her life illuminates the world
She inspires me through all my endeavour
May her light shine on now and forever
Where she belongs
But her truth goes marching on
So we went down to Old Amsterdam

Whatever happened to Sameem Ali
Sameem Ali forced to marry
No-one can hear your anguished cry
By arrangement, no engagement
Where does your salvation lie

Yes you will
Submit to his will
Yes you will
Give yourself freely to him
Yes you will
Obey all his demands verbatim
Yes you will
Dishonour is an unforgivable sin

Whatever happened to Sameem Ali
Keep on running run away
Keep on hiding hide away
They don’t own you and they don’t own me
You don’t let them steal your life away

Show don’t tell
Is the only way
To break the spell

Sameem Ali matrimony
Is it right for you to choose
No one to protest the elders know best
Traditional values
Yes you will
Burst the bonds of reason
Yes you will
Make a dash for freedom
Yes you will
Stand up for yourself
Yes you will
When there ain’t nobody else to help

Whatever happened to Sameem Ali
Keep on running run away
Keep on hiding hide away
They don’t own you and they don’t own me
You don’t let them steal your life away

Show don’t tell
Is the only way
To break the spell

Ave Maria
Star of the sea
Maria Ave Maria
Don’t you worry now
Don’t you worry baby

Her love it takes me higher
Fills my desire
Ave Maria
In her arms I will stay
She takes my pain away
Ave Maria
And she is filled with grace
Tears run down her face
Ave Maria
Still she cries for me
Tears of ecstasy
Ave Maria

Maria Ave Maria
See the flowers in her garden grow
Springtime procession spectacular show
No rings on her fingers or bells on her toes
There shall be new life wherever she goes

Maria
Don’t you worry now
Don’t you worry baby

The matriarch to whom I pray
Through endless nights and lonely days
Ave Maria
Unbreakable in her belief
The bearer of my grief
Ave Maria
The silent witness to my dream
Always around but never seen
Ave Maria
She is the wind that fills my sail
Never known to fail
Never known to fail

Role Model
Role model
Sorrow follow you
If you want to be a model
Be a role model

The lady of the lake
The fairy on the cake
The naked and the dead
Follow in her wake

Lead by example
If you want to be a model
Be a role model
Blowing cold kisses

Keep my love closer to your heart
Come what may
Sharing each day
All that survives of us is love

Keep my love closer to your heart
When I get lost along the way
Keep my love closer to your heart
And I have seen her
Leaning in the windows of the sunset

Gentle and kind
Pure in mind
Half shy of your own glory
Come what may
Sharing each day
Mother, daughter, sister
All that survives of us is love

Keep my love closer to your heart
Standing side by side
Wayfarer and guide
Lead me back to life

Keep my love closer to your heart
Reaching out to me
Hands across the sea
On the banks of the River Aire
Where we sat down and cried

Poverty is her freedom
For her that I love
I wish to be free
Even from me
And I’m so glad I found you
I build my world around you

Come what may
Sharing each day
Mother, daughter, sister
All that survives of us is love

Guilt kills
Thoughts of you run through my days

Guilt kills
If you knew then
What you know now
Would you still turn out
To greet me anyhow

Guilt kills
Make of it what you will
A penance for my ills
Sorry for breaking your heart
The seams are falling apart

A confession
Capital vices deadly sins
A confession here begins
Lust for life foolish pride
Along I went for the ride
Mission creep crash and burn
I strayed at every turn
His and hers non sequiturs
The lines between became blurred
Errors strewn across the page
I knew the folly of my ways

A confession here begins
All accountability took flight
Might not right
Insatiable appetite
For hedonistic delights
When I got what I wanted
I was as quiet as can be
No greater sinner than me
Green eyed envy
Fury displayed
Take me from the place
Where I learnt how to hate

Thoughts of you run through my days

Avida dollars
Avida dollars

Wind palace
Imagine a song called give peace a chance
Rattle your jewellery make people dance
Try to get married in Holland or France
Portrait of the artist as a young man

Don’t give in to hate
Flying to America BOAC
Nobody told me there’d be days like these
Shea Beatle mania, JF Kennedy
Absence of malice in the wind palace
I’m learning how to levitate

The emperor he ain’t wearing no clothes
The emperor he got a roman nose
Spending his days making the bread
Fighting the daemon inside of his head

There’s a monster living under the stairs
A poltergeist is moving the chairs
Ghost on the Island the man from nowhere
Plays Revolution on Madison Square

Don’t give in to hate
Jesus he loves me, I’m bigger than Christ
Bonfire of vanities I saw the light
Nothing to steal, nothing is real in my life
Absence of malice in the wind palace
I’m learning how to levitate

Posing for a photo with Muhammad Ali
Float like a butterfly sting like a bee
Jamming with Elvis at the Heartbreak Hotel
A guru mystic put you under a spell

Brian Wilson nightmares on wax
Robert Zimmerman Blood on the tracks
Where fiction end and truth begin
The fallen angels are living in sin
Never meet your idol

John is a phoney Yoko’s a witch
Ted drove his car into a ditch
To the great Gatsby and the idle rich
Instant karma loves hypocrites

Meanwhile back at the Dakota
The catcher in the rye non grata persona
Gets in so close now he can’t miss
Highest new entry on the celebrity hit list

Don’t give in to hate
Across the silent borderlands of now and yesterday

The blue meanie killed the fool on the hill
Buffalo Bill went out tiger hunting
Deep in the Big Apple urban jungle with Harry and Phil
Mary and Julia are living there still

Anthems for lovers sang the two brothers
For lost and lonely little boys missing their mothers
