Autumn Waltz

Chill winds and blue Skies are everywhere And I’m sentimental Cause I still care Constantly dreaming Of one love affair When I hear the autumn waltz Golden October is when we met The wind dries the leaves But my eyes stay wet You are the one love That I can’t forget When I hear the…

Rainy Season

Say that you love me, even if it’s not true And say that this storm is just passing through And, baby, tell me you’re not leaving It’s just the rainy season The air’s getting heavy and we both know why So dance one more dance and tell one more lie Baby, let’s keep make believing…

Soft Caress

The sweetest thing I’ve ever known Was like the kiss on the collarbone The soft caress of happiness The way you walk, your style of dress I wish I didn’t get so weak Oooh, baby, just to hear you speak Makes me argue just to see How much you’re in love with me See, like…

I feel it in my bones

Blow by blow. I didn’t see it coming. Blow by blow. Sucker punch. Rushes in. Here to stay. Rushes in. You are here to stay. What rushes in to my heart and my skull, I can’t control. Think about it, feel it in my bones. What rushes in to my heart and my skull, I…

My heart is in Havana

Havana, ooh na-na (ay) Half of my heart is in Havana, ooh-na-na (ay, ay) He took me back to East Atlanta, na-na-na All of my heart is in Havana (ay) There’s somethin’ ’bout his manners (uh huh) Havana, ooh na-na He didn’t walk up with that “how you doin’?” (When he came in the room)…

Plum Season

My mother loved the summer But not for the weather She loved the mid-season plums June, July, August sweet ones My father kept them plenty Always stocked in our pantry Some ripe and some well past peak Till she was too sick to eat Still at my childhood home The only home that I’ve known…

The Crows

Golden days are so far away There’s a black rain up above Out on the wind you hear her call She’s under your skin and you drift away She spreads her wings when she’s gonna fly, the crow… If you make her sing when she’s coming she will let you know… Her frozen hand takes…

The Only Place

We were born with sun in our teeth and in our hair When we get bored we like to sit around, sit around and stare At the mountains, at the birds, at the ocean, at the trees We have fun, we have fun, we have fun when we please We wake up with the sun…

Tokyo, Tokyo

Baby’s got a lot of baggage… It don’t seem to matter, it don’t seem to matter Got a ticket for the mid-west, just for business but dismissed it for the interest it was a risk just for a mistress that was a hostess on the west-coast Don’t you see it in my eyes tonight-ight-iiiight …Baby’s…

Season of change

Season of change life feels so strange Look into my eyes do you see the truth I’m lost and alone feelings unknown Come to me stronger than before On winds of time my soul will fly The angels are knocking at my door Oh now I need to be free From all this hatred I…

Rebel

Hey babe, your hair’s alright Hey babe, let’s go out tonight You like me, and I like it all We like dancing and we look divine You love bands when they’re playing hard You want more and you want it fast They put you down, they say I’m wrong You tacky thing, you put them…

Rockabye

She tells him: “Uh, love, no one’s ever gonna hurt you, love I’m gonna give you all of my love Nobody matters like you” (Stay out there, stay out there) She tells him: “Your life ain’t gonna be nothing like my life You’re gonna grow and have a good life I’m gonna do what I’ve…
