Aria

Oh, how divine Glamour, music, and magic combine See the maidens so anxious to shine Look for a sign that enhances chances She’ll be his special one What a display What a breathtaking, thrilling array Every prince, every dog has his day And I’ll sing with passion, gusto, fit to bust Oh, not a care…

Winter fields

Hurtling through heavy snow Our hands are cold and the moon sets low Little sister let your sharp teeth show Pass winter fields Stop the car by the old wire post Scaredy rabbits make good paper ghosts That lick the salt off the Sussex coast And fall into winter fields Rows of white Spelled our…

My North

Years I go I said Goodbye to the south where we met The warmth that we both had I can’t find you there You don’t understand That we aren’t here Our direction is yet not there And follow your stars To the cold, black north This is where we belong For now No bloody east,…

Blue Princess

We’ve all been told when we were little We could grow up and live a fairy tale But no one ever bothered telling us that The story book ending never started out well Why’s there always gotta be a hero? What if Cinderella had to save herself? So princess, hold your head high Even if…

I’m going camping

I got my gear in my pack I got my pack on my back Today’s the day I’m going camping Just got the goahead sign The weather’s gonna be fine Today’s the day I’m going camping I’m gonna pitch me a tent Won’t have to pay any rent It looks like ev’rything is “A O.K.”…

Waiting for your message

Burning Heart

In the warrior’s code There’s no surrender Though his body says stop His spirit cries – never! Deep in our soul A quiet ember Knows it’s you against you It’s the paradox That drives us on It’s a battle of wills In the heat of attack It’s the passion that kills The victory is yours…

Old Love

This was all you, none of it me You put your hands on, on my body and told me Mmm You told me you were ready For the big one, for the big jump I’d be your last love everlasting you and me Mmm That was what you told me I’m giving you up I’ve…

Peony

I want you to meet me at my houseboat Be sure and wear your little black rubber rain coat Write you a letter on thin lined note paper Hide it in the tree where the houseboat float Pulled a pully bone and make a fat wish Crawdad in the skillet, gonna catch a catfish Write…

Futura

Give me back my broken night my mirrored room, my secret life it’s lonely here, there’s no one left to torture Give me absolute control over every living soul And lie beside me, baby, that’s an order! Things are going to slide, slide in all directions Won’t be nothing Nothing you can measure anymore The…
