Malefica

Beware the unsavoury grief of the serpent Eschew her feeble heart, her juices, her tongue Thou wouldst follow a siren’s voice through a sea of caustic Absinthe And with malicious lust inflamed, thou shalt fail, and writhe in hate Mala ergo mulier ex natura – The female is bitterer than death! An generatiuam potentiam seu…

Laced

These were the days that you tried to fade It was the last thing you said to me Lost in the ways that you tried to take Made in the rain of our history It’s in my heart, it’s in my head for you It’s in my heart, it’s in my head for you You…

Explosion

You left my soul bleeding in the dark So you could be king The rules you set are still untold to me And I’ve lost my faith in everything The nights you could cope, Your intentions were gold But the mountains will shake I need to know I can still make Explosions…on the day you…

Lately you have been asking me If all my words are true Don’t you know I’ll do anything for youSometimes I haven’t been good to you Sometimes I’ve made you cry And I am sorry for everything But I promise you, girl I promise you this When the blue night is over my face On…

Midnight Train

So I pick up the pieces, I get on the midnight train I got my reasons, but darlin’ I can’t explain I’ll always love you But tonight’s the night I choose to walk away I can’t stop cryin’, I hate that I’ve caused you pain But I can’t deny it, I just don’t feel the…

At Maggie’s

I wandered today to the hills, Maggie To watch the scene below The creek and the creaking old mill, Maggie As we used to long, long ago The green grove has gone from the hills, Maggie Where first the daisies sprung The creaking old mill is still, Maggie Since you and I were young Oh,…

Little Moments

Let it go Let it roll right off your shoulder Don’t you know? The hardest part is over Let it in Let your clarity define you; In the end We will only just remember how it feels Our lives are made In these small hours These little wonders These twists and turns of fate Time…

Prince Frog

An old fairytale told me The simple heart will be prized again A toad will be our king And ugly ogres are heroes Then you’ll shake Your fist at the sky “Oh why did I rely On fashions and small fry?” All promises broken Feed your people or lose your throne And forfeit your whole…
