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…

A Thousand And One Nights

Darling, the hands of time must always point ahead, yesterday’s passed Today has come and gone, the secret of tomorrow’s coming fast Which bedtime story shall I sing to you when we turn out the lights? One of eternity or one of just a thousand and one nights? Is there a mystic with the answers…

No Promises

Oh na na, just be careful Na na, love ain’t simple Promise me no promises Oh na na, just be careful, na na Love ain’t simple, na na Promise me no promises Baby, I think about you And I feel it, deep in my heart Maybe we just ain’t meant to be something Maybe we…

Horse and I

Got woken in the night, by a mystic golden light. My head soaked in river water. I had been dressed in a coat of armor. They called a horse out of the woodland. “Take her there, through the desert shores.” They sang to me, “This is yours to wear. You’re the chosen one, there’s no…

You can’t reach me

You say that we’re apart And you can’t reach me Yeah you can’t reach me You got a broken heart Don’t let them see it Don’t let them see it You built a wall bigger than your dreams Feeling so small, covered in your fears Baby, open the door Let me come closer I’ll dry…

Beautiful Day

The heart is a bloom Shoots up through the stony ground There’s no room No space to rent in this town You’re out of luck And the reason that you had to care The traffic is stuck And you’re not moving anywhere You thought you’d found a friend To take you out of this place…
