My command

You’re standing in a deep dark hole Beneath a sky as black as coal It’s just the fear of losing control You know so well Don’t miss it when the moment comes Be submissive just this once Imagine there is something to be done Some truth to tell I would love To trouble you in…

At the pier

At the end of the pier I can stare out at nothin’ After the sun goes down I just hear the waves crashin’ I just hear the waves crashin’ After everyone’s gone I plug my guitar in But I can’t think of a song So I just smash on it So I just smash on…

Claudia

Oh, Claudia, don’t take it away, girl, if you leave me this way I’m gonna search night and day to find your love Oh Claudia, don’t take it this way What kind of bad mistake is worth our saying goodbye? The last time we vowed we would not part, my love And so take heart,…

All the small things

All the small things True care, truth brings I’ll take one lift Your ride best trip Always I know You’ll be at my show Watching, waiting, commiserating Say it ain’t so, I will not go, Turn the lights off, Carry me home Na, na… Late night, come home Work sucks, I know She left me…

Well I didn’t tell anyone, but a bird flew by. Saw what I’d done. He set up a nest outside, and he sang about what I’d become. He sang so loud, sang so clear. I was afraid all the neighbours would hear, So I invited him in, just to reason with him. I promised I…

A Pure Feeling

Blinded by the glare I was moving like I didn’t care But it was more than I could bear You know I hoped I’d see you there Staring out the window I could see into the soul of every passer by So many lives So many pairs of eyes A pure feeling I’m invisible and…

I just need a moment

Well, you were burning up the sky Looking for a light when you saved me I was convinced no one would take me You turned and took me by the hand But now that look in your eyes All of your sighs are saying “Go, please” “Leave me alone and leave you lonely” It looks…

A New Year

So this is the new year. And i don’t feel any different. The clanking of crystal Explosions off in the distance (in the distance). So this is the new year And I have no resolutions For self assigned penance For problems with easy solutions So everybody put your best suit or dress on Let’s make…

Shhh dont tell!

There’s something I know That no one else does You want me to tell you what it is? But if I did that then it wouldn’t be, a secret Mommy sees the look in my eyes, she can tell something’s different Daddy doesn’t understand why, but he can tell something’s different I’ve got a secret,…
