Aerial [Aerial]



The dawn has come
And the wine will run
And the song must be sung
And the flowers are melting
In the sun

I feel I want to be up on the roof
I feel I gotta get up on the roof
Up, up on the roof
Up, up on the roof

Oh the dawn has come
And the song must be sung
And the flowers are melting
What kind of language is this?

What kind of language is this?
I can't hear a word you're saying
Tell me what are you singing
In the sun

All of the birds are laughing
All of the birds are laughing
Come on let's all join in
Come on let's all join in

I want to be up on the roof
I've gotta be up on the roof
Up, up high on the roof
Up, up on the roof
In the sun

All The Love [The Dreaming]



The first time I died
Was in the arms of good friends of mine.
They kiss me with their tears.
They hadn't been near me for years.
Say, why do it now
When I won't be around, I'm going out?

"We needed you
To love us too.
We wait for your move."

Only tragedy allows the release
Of love and grief never normally seen.
I didn't want to let them see me weep,
I didn't want to let them see me weak,
But I know I have shown
That I stand at the gates alone.

"I needed you
To love me too.
I wait for your move."

All the love, all the love,
All the love you should have given.
All the love, all the love,
All the love we could have given.
All the love, all the love, all the love,

The next time I dedicate
My life's work to the friends I make,
I give them what they want to hear.
They think I'm up to something weird
And up rears the head of fear in me.
So now when they ring
I get my machine to let them in.

"I needed you
To love me too.
I wait for your move."

All the love, all the love,
All the love you should have given.
All the love, all the love,
All the love we could have given.
All the love, all the love, all the love,

"Take Care, to-de-loo"
"Bye"
"Bye for now"
"Bye"
"Later"
"Byee"
"Cherio"
"Bye"
"Bye bye"
"Bye"
"See ya"
"Byeee"
"Bye"
"Byee"
"Cheers"
"See ya"
"Bye"
"Goodbye"
"I'll see you soon"
"Goodnight"

"We needed you
To love us too.
We wait for your move."



All We Ever Look For [Never For Ever]



Just look at your father
And you'll see how you took after him.
Me, I'm just another
Like my brothers
Of my mother's genes.

All they ever want for you
Are the things they didn't do.
All they ever wanted - a little clue.
All they ever wanted - the truth.
All they ever wanted - a little bit of you.
All they ever wanted,
But they never did get.

The whims that we're weeping for
Our parents would be beaten for
Leave the breast and then the nest
And then regret you ever left.

All we're really looking for
Is another open door.
All we ever look for - another womb.
All we ever look for - is our own tomb.
All we ever look for - ooh, la lune.
All we ever look for - just a little bit of you, too.
All we ever look for,
But we never do score.

[Krishna, Krishna]
[bird sounds]
[street sounds]

All we ever look for - a god.
All we ever look for - ooh, a drug.
All we ever look for - a great big hug.
All we ever look for - a little bit of you.
All we ever look for - a little bit of you, too.
All we ever look for,
But we never do score.



Among Angels [50 Words For Snow]



Only you can do something about it.
There's no-one there, my friend, any better.
I might know what you mean when you say you fall apart.
Aren't we all the same? In and out of doubt.
I can see angels standing around you.
They shimmer like mirrors in Summer.
But you don't know it.
And they will carry you o'er the walls.
If you need us, just call.
Rest your weary world in their hands.
Lay your broken laugh at their feet.
I can see angels around you.
They shimmer like mirrors in Summer.
There's someone who's loved you forever but you don't know it.
You might feel it and just not show it.


An Architect's Dream [Aerial]



Watching the painter painting
And all the time, the light is changing
And he keeps painting
That bit there, it was an accident
But he's so pleased
It's the best mistake, he could make
And it's my favourite piece
It's just great

The flick of a wrist
Twisting down to the hips
So the lovers begin, with a kiss
In a tryst
It's just a smudge
But what it becomes
In his hands:
Curving and sweeping
Rising and reaching
I could feel what he was feeling
Lines like these have got to be
An architect's dream

It's always the same
Whenever he works on a pavement
It starts to rain
And all the time
The light is changing



And Dream Of Sheep [Hounds Of Love/The Ninth Wave]



Little light shining,
Little light will guide them to me.
My face is all lit up,
My face is all lit up.
If they find me racing white horses,
They'll not take me for a buoy.

Let me be weak,
Let me sleep
And dream of sheep.

"Attention shipping information in sea
areas...Bell Rock, Tiree,
Cromaty, gale east...Malin, Sellafield..."

"Come here with me now."

Oh, I'll wake up
To any sound of engines,
Ev'ry gull a seeking craft.
I can't keep my eyes open
Wish I had my radio.
I tune in to some friendly voices
Talking 'bout stupid things.
I can't be left to my imagination.

Let me be weak,
Let me sleep
And dream of sheep.

Ooh, their breath is warm
And they smell like sleep,
And they say they take me home.
Like poppies heavy with seed, oh.
They take me deeper and deeper.



And So Is Love [Director's Cut]



And you huh?
You do huh?

We let it in
We give it out
And in the end
What's it all about?
It must be love

I give you my
I give you my
You give me your
You give me your joy

We used to say
"Ah Hell, we're young"
But now we see that life is sweet

And so is love

Isn't that enough?

You let it slip

(Ooh)
Yeah show me that your love me
(Ooh)
Not for love
Just for the sake of love
(Ooh)
You set me free
I set you free
Can't you see?

Oh yeah, Oh you too.

All for love

Just for the sake of love
(Life is sad and so is love)
You set me free
I set you free
(Life is sad and so is love)

Army Dreamers [Never For Ever]

(Army Dreamers)
(Mammy's hero)
(B.F.P.O)
(Mammy's hero)

Our little army boy
Is coming home from B.F.P.O.
I've a bunch of purple flowers
To decorate a mammy's hero.

Mourning in the aerodrome,
The weather warmer, he is colder.
Four men in uniform
To carry home my little soldier.

"What could he do?
Should have been a rock star."
But he didn't have the money for a guitar.
"What could he do?
Should have been a politician."
But he never had a proper education.
"What could he do?
Should have been a father."
But he never even made it to his twenties.
What a waste --
Army dreamers.

Tears o'er a tin box.
Oh, Jesus Christ, he wasn't to know,
Like a chicken with a fox,
He couldn't win the war with ego.

Give the kid the pick of pips,
And give him all your stripes and ribbons.
Now he's sitting in his hole,
He might as well have buttons and bows.

"What could he do?
Should have been a rock star."
But he didn't have the money for a guitar.
"What could he do?
Should have been a politician."
But he never had a proper education.
"What could he do?
Should have been a father."
But he never even made it to his twenties.
What a waste --
Army dreamers.
Oh What a waste of
Army dreamers.
Oh What a waste of
Army dreamers.
Army dreamers.
Army dreamers.

Atlantis [Demo]



In that ocean.
Wide eyed and deeper in your gaze,
And bluer than the bright that's in the cave.

There is a city,
Came out from you, Atlantis
In ruins, sunken below the waves

But in the city,
Where there is no one.
What's the point of being free, eh?
When there is nothing there to tie me down,
Oh, no more here.

The bluest city,
Covered in coral and coral,
On sea chests,
And sealed Jamaician tales.

There is nobody
To count the soldiering meandering whales,
With a shoal of herring amongst the sails.

But in the city,
Where there is no one.
What's the point of being free, eh?
When there is nothing there to tie me down,
Oh, no more here.

There is the city Atlantis.



Babooshka [Never For Ever]



(Babooshka, Babooshka)
She wanted to test her husband.
She knew exactly what to do:
A pseudonym to fool him.
She couldn't have made a worse move.

She sent him scented letters,
And he received them with a strange delight.
Just like his wife
But how she was before the tears,
And how she was before the years flew by,
And how she was when she was beautiful.
She signed the letter

"All yours,
Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya!
All yours,
Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya!"

(Babooshka)
She wanted to take it further,
So she arranged a place to go,
To see if he
Would fall for her incognito.
And when he laid eyes on her,
He got the feeling they had met before.
Uncanny how she
Reminds him of his little lady,
Capacity to give him all he needs,
Just like his wife before she freezed on him,
Just like his wife when she was beautiful.
He shouted out, "I'm

All yours,
Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya!
All yours,
Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya!
All yours,

Can say the things that make him want to laugh.

Be Kind To My Mistakes [B-side of This Woman's Work]



It is this that brings us together.
It is this that brings us together.

It's all right, darling,
We can do this together.
It's all right, darling,
I can think of nothing better.

I don't know you,
And you don't know me.
It is this that brings us together.

I don't know what you are
(It is this that brings us together.)
Looking for in me.
(It is this that brings us together.)
I don't know what I want,
But my heart is leading.

Am I yours? Are you mine?
We'll find all we're meant to find.
In your life, in my life,
There are secrets too dark
To let out, to let go of,
To get over.

But that's all right, baby.
That's all right by me.
'Coz, it's all right now.

(Just let me say)
Please, ("Yea, yo, yea, yo!")
Please, ("Yea, yo, yea, yo!")
Please, ("Yea, yo, yea, yo!")
Please be kind,
Be kind,
To my mistakes.
Be kind,
Be kind
To me.

"Lum, lum, lum..."



Bertie [Aerial]



Here comes the sunshine
Here comes that son of mine
Here comes the everything
Here's a song and a song for him

Sweet kisses
Three wishes
Lovely Bertie

The most beautiful
The most truly fantastic smile
I've ever seen

Sweet kisses
Three wishes
Lovely Bertie

You bring me so much joy
And then you bring me
More joy



Between A Man And A Woman [The Sensual World]



With her hand in his hand,
They were both happy again.
You started taking sides.
They started arguing.
He said it was her fault.
She said it wasn't at all.
But the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

Where angels fear to tread,
You go rushing in.

Well, I had to tell you then,
And now I'm telling you again:

Stay out of this
You must not interfere
Don't you see this is
Between a man and a woman?

Every day and night I pray,
Pray that you will stay away forever.
It's so hard for love to stay together,
With the modern Western pressures.

I don't want to say it,
But I had to tell you then,
And now I'm telling you again:

Stay out of this.
Oh, I know you mean to help me,
And I know you've good intentions.
But stay out of this.
This isn't your problem.
Do not interfere, you are not needed here.

Let the pendulum swing

Between a man and a woman.

Don't you see? you're in the way

Between a man and a woman.

Every day and night I pray,
Let the pendulum swing

Between a man and a woman.
Between a man and a woman.

Walking out in the Big Sky.

Rolling over like a great big cloud,
Walking out in the Big Sky.

Big Stripey Lie [The Red Shoes]



Oh big stripey lie moving
Like a wavy line
Coming up behi-hi-hind

All young gentle dreams drowning
In life's grief
Can you hang on to me?

Don't want to hurt you baby
I only want to help you
I could be good for you

Your name is being called by sacred things
That are not addressed nor listened to
Sometimes they blow trumpets

Only want to help you
Never want to hurt you
I know I could be good for you

Oh my God it's a jungle in here
You've got wild animals loose in here

Want to help you
Never hurt you
Good for you

Hey all you little waves run away
Mmm run away



Blow Away (For Bill) [Never For Ever]



One of the band told me last night
That music is all that he's got in his life.
So where will it go?
Surely not with his soul.
Will all of his licks and his R'n'B blow away?

Blow away
Blow away
Blow away
Blow away
Blow away
Blow away

Our engineer had a different idea
From people who nearly died but survived,
Feeling no fear of leaving their bodies here,
And went to a room that was soon full of visitors.

Hello Minnie, Moony, Vicious, Vicious,
Buddy Holly, Sandy Denny.
Please don't thump me,
Don't bump me,
Don't dump me back there.
Please don't thump me,
Don't bump me,
Don't dump me back there.
Please don't thump me,
Don't bump me,
I want to stay here.

Put out the light, then, put out the light.
Vibes in the sky invite you to dine (die - in KB Complete).
Dust to dust,
Blow to blow.
Bolan and Moony are heading the show tonight.

Hello Minnie, Moony, Vicious, Vicious,
Buddy Holly, Sandy Denny.
Please don't thump me,
Don't bump me,
Don't dump me back there.
Please don't thump me,
Don't bump me,
Don't dump me back there.
Please don't thump me,
Don't bump me,
I want to stay here.

Brazil [Movie soundtrack]



When hearts were entertained in June
We stood beneath an amber moon
And softly whispered 'some day soon'

We kissed and clung together
Then
Tomorrow was another day
The morning found me miles away
With still a million things to say

Now
When twilight beams the skies above
Recalling thrills of our love
There's one thing I'm certain of

Return I will
To old Brazil



Breathing [Never For Ever]



Outside
Gets inside ooh
Through her skin.
I've been out before
But this time it's much safer in.

Last night in the sky, ooh
Such a bright light.
My radar send me danger
But my instincts tell me to keep

Breathing,
(out in out in out in)
Breathing,
(out in out)
Breathing my mother in,
Breathing my beloved in,
Breathing,
Breathing her nicotine,
Breathing,
Breathing the fall-out in,
Out in, out in, out in, out in.

We've lost our chance.
We're the first and the last, ooh
After the blast.
Chips of Plutonium
Are twinkling in every lung.

(ahh)
I love my
(ahh)
Beloved, ooh
All and everywhere,
(ahh)
Only the fools blew it.
(ahh)
You and me
(ahh)
Knew life itself is
(ahh)

Breathing,
(out in out in out in)
Breathing,
(out in out)
Breathing my mother in,
Breathing my beloved in,
Breathing,
Breathing her nicotine,
Breathing,
Breathing the fall-out in,
Out in, out in, out in, out in,
Out in, out in, out in, out, out, out, out, out

"In point of fact it is possible to tell the
difference between a small nuclear explosion and
a large one by a very simple method. The calling
card of a nuclear bomb is the blinding flash that
is far more dazzling than any light on earth, brighter
even than the sun itself, and it is by the duration
of this flash that we are able to determine the size
(What are we going to do without)
of the weapon. After the flash a fireball can be
seen to rise, sucking up under it the debris, dust
and living things around the area of the explosion,
and as this ascends, it soon becomes recognisable
as the familiar "mushroom cloud". As a demonstration
of the flash duration test let's try and count the
number of seconds for the flash emitted by a very
small bomb; then a more substantial, medium-sized
bomb; and finally, one of our very powerful,
"high-yield" bombs.

(What are we going to do without?)
Ooh please,
(What are we going to do without?)
Let me breathe!
(What are we going to do without?)
Ooh quick, breathe in deep!
(We are all going to die without)
Oh, leave me something to breathe!
(What are we going to do without?)
Oh, leave me something to breathe!
(We are all going to die without)
Oh god please leave us something to breathe!
(What are we going to do without?)
Oh, life is...

Candle In The Wind [Tribute to Elton John]



Goodbye Norma Jean
Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around you crawled

They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set you on a treadmill
And they made you change your name

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
The candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Loneliness was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Hollywood created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid

Even when you died
Oh the press still hounded you
All the papers had to say
Was that Marilyn was found in the nude

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
Well I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
The candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Goodbye Norma Jean
Though I never knew you at all
Goodbye Norma Jean
From the young man in the 22nd row
Who sees you as something as more than sexual
More than just Marilyn Monroe

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
Well I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
The candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Goodbye Norma Jean
Goodbye Norma Jean
Goodbye
Goodbye Norma Jean



Cloudbusting [Hounds Of Love]



I still dream of Orgonon.
I wake up crying.
You're making rain,
And you're just in reach,
When you and sleep escape me.

You're like my yo-yo
That glowed in the dark.
What made it special
Made it dangerous,
So I bury it
And forget.

But every time it rains,
You're here in my head,
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen.
I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.

On top of the world,
Looking over the edge,
You could see them coming.
You looked too small
In their big, black car,
To be a threat to the men in power.

I hid my yo-yo
In the garden.
I can't hide you
From the government.
Oh, God, Daddy
I won't forget,

'Cause every time it rains,
You're here in my head,
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen.
I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.

And every time it rains,
You're here in my head,
Like the sun coming out
Like your son's coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen.
I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen. Oh.
Ohh, just saying it could even make it happen.

Yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yo.
I'm cloudbusting daddy.
Yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yo.
Yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yo.
Yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yo.

The sun's coming out.
Yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yeah-ee, yo.
Your son's coming out.

Coffee Homeground [Lionheart]



Down in the cellar
You're getting into making poison.
You slipped some on the side,
Into my glass of wine,
And I don't want any coffee homeground.

Offer me a chocolate,
No thank you, spoil my diet, know your game!
Tell me just how come
They smell of bitter almonds?
It's a no-no to your coffee homeground.

Pictures of Crippin
Lipstick-smeared.
Torn wallpaper.
Have the walls got ears here?

Well, you won't get me with your Belladonna, in the coffee,
And you won't get me with your arsenic, in the pot of tea,
And you won't get me in a hole to rot, with your hemlock
On the rocks.

Where are the plumbers
Who went a-missing here on Monday?
There was a tall man
With his companion,
And I bet you gave them coffee homeground.

Maybe you're lonely,
And only want a little company,
But keep your recipes
For the rats to eat,
And may they rest in peace with coffee homeground.

Pictures of Crippin
Lipstick-smeared.
Torn wallpaper.
Have the walls got ears here?

Well, you won't get me with your Belladonna, in the coffee,
And you won't get me with your arsenic, in the pot of tea,
And you won't put me in a six-foot plot, with your hemlock
On the rocks.

With your hemlock on the rocks.
"Noch ein Glas, mein Liebchen?" {Another glass my dear?}
With your hemlock on the rocks.
With your hemlock on the rocks.
"Es schmeckt wunderbar!" {It tastes wonderful!}
With your hemlock on the rocks.
"Dann sterb' ich wohl!" {Then I will die!}
With your hemlock on the rocks.
With your hemlock on the rocks.
With your hemlock on the rocks.
With your hemlock on the rocks.



Come Closer To Me Babe [Demo]



Come closer to me, babe,
And the night will come much closer, too.
Can't you see the light
Drawing pictures nearer in the skies?

What is it that you whisper
When you close your eyes?
Come closer to me, babe.
Is it me it's all about?
And who is it that you're always
Calling in your sleep?
Who is Sylvia?

Goodnight, baby. Please
Come on home,
Come on home,
Come on home soon.
Goodnight, baby,
Goodnight, baby,
Goodnight, baby,
Goodnight, baby.

Come closer to me now,
For I know there's something you must tell me.
When slumber slips between your lips
Will the secrets ooze out easily?

What is it that you whisper
When you close your eyes?
Come closer to me, babe.
Is it me it's all about?
And who is it that you're always
Calling in your sleep?
Who is Sylvia?

Goodnight, baby. Please
Come on home,
Come on home,
Come on home soon.
Goodnight, baby,
Goodnight, baby,
Goodnight, baby,
Goodnight, baby.



Constellation Of The Heart [The Red Shoes]



We take all the telescopes
And we turn them inside out
And we point them away from the big sky
Put your eye right up to the glass, now
And here we'll find the constellation of the heart

Steer your life by these stars
On the unconditional chance
'Tis here where Hell and Heaven dance
This is the constellation of the heart

We take all the telescopes
And we turn them inside out
And we point them away from the big sky
Put your eye right up to the glass, now
And here we'll find the constellation of the heart

The constellation of the heart
The constellation of the heart
The constellation of the heart
The constellation of the heart

We take all the telescopes
And we turn them inside out
And we point them away from the big sky
Put your eye right up to the glass, now
And here we'll find the constellation of the heart

The constellation of the heart
The constellation of the heart
The constellation of the heart

Well we think you'd better wake up capt'n
There's something happen'n up ahead
We've never seen anything like it
We've never seen anything like it before

I want a full report
That's it
What do you mean, "That's it?"
That's all you get
You'd better do something 'bout it
What am I supposed to do about it?
We don't know, but you can't run away from it
Maybe you'd better face it
I can't do that
C'mon face it!
I can't do that
C'mon, c'mon face it
What am I gonna do?
Is it gonna hurt, is it gonna hurt me bad?

Ooh here's the constellation of the heart

Who said anything about it hurting?
It's gonna be beautiful
It's gonna be wonderful
It's gonna be paradise

(Just being alive, it can really hurt...)
Ooh find me the man with the ladder
It's gonna be beautiful
And he might lift me up to the stars
It's gonna be wonderful
It's gonna be paradise

(Without the pain there'd be no learning
Without the hurting we'd never change.)

Oooh and if you see the woman with the key
It's gonna be beautiful
It's gonna be wonderful
It's gonna be paradise
I hear she's opening up the doors to Heaven

Wonderful
Wonderful
It's gonna be beautiful
Beautiful
It's gonna be wonderful
Wonderful
It's gonna be paradise

Oh and here comes the man with the stick
It's gonna be beautiful
It's gonna be wonderful
It's gonna be paradise

He said he'd fish me out of the moon
It's gonna be beautiful
It's gonna be wonderful
It's gonna be paradise

Ohoh here's the constellation of the heart
It's gonna be beautiful
It is the constellation of the heart
It's gonna be wonderful
It's gonna be paradise

Oh yes it is the constellation of the heart



A Coral Room [Aerial]



There's a city, draped in net
Fisherman net
And in the half light, in the half light
It looks like every tower
Is covered in webs
Moving and glistening and rocking
It's babies in rhythm
As the spider of time is climbing
Over the ruins

There were hundreds of people living here
Sails at the windows
And the planes came crashing down
And many a pilot drowned
And the speed boats flying above
Put your hand over the side of the boat
What do you feel?

My mother and her little brown jug
It held her milk
And now it holds our memories
I can hear her singing
"Little brown jug don't I love thee"
"Little brown jug don't I love thee"
Ho ho ho, hee hee hee

I hear her laughing
She is standing in the kitchen
As we come in the back door
See it fall
See it fall
Oh little spider climbing out of a broken jug
And the pieces will lay there a while
In a house draped in net
In a room filled with coral
Sails at the window
Forests of masts
Put your hand over the side of the boat
Put your hand over the side of the boat
What do you feel?



Cussi, Cussi [Demo]



Please
Don't be-e afraid of this
Coz' we don't move the way they do.
Surely you don't love them?
So why hide it away from me?

Please be easy you got it I haven't,
Somewhere in your "harmineenou, home-arneenou"
There's a room in a long form
Where you just play a tune
It gets us really stoned,

Really amazingly,
Cussi, Cussi, Cussi,
Cussi, Cussi, Cussi. Ah.

Don't let them in
When you see that secret smile.
Baby, don't let them in
When you feel the ribbons eye.

You get the wrong idea,
You'll get broken,
And you never let yourself go again with me.

And I've notice in your eyes
A sadness I don't like.
To recognise
You are feeling a heavy side of your ecstacy.

Now you're getting to me,
So that I can I hardly bear it.
So that I can I hardly bear it.
No no,
Don't get too deep.

Don't let them in
When you see that secret smile.
Baby, don't let them in
When you feel the ribbons eye.

You get the wrong idea,
You'll get broken,
And you never let yourself go again with me,
Properly.



The Craft Of Love [Demo]



I tried to study it for just a while:
All of the potions, from oysters to seducing smiles.
But I've found it's already inside me:
A big round bubble of sensuality,
Dared to be burst,
But worried about getting hurt.

I know how you like to kiss.
I'll ask you what you're thinking.
Silvers in our dark hair.
The sheets are soaked by your tiny fish.

The craft of love,
The craft of love,
The craft of life,
The craft of love,
Oo-ooh...

Tears spring to mind when I go back in time.
All those lost bodies just seeking security.
Jittering strangers with sweating hands,
Heavy and clever and full of demands.
Well I'm similar to you:
We're familiar with what to do.

I know how you like to kiss.
I'll ask you what you're thinking.
Silvers in our dark hair.
The sheets are soaked by your tiny fish.

The craft of love,
The craft of love,
The craft of life,
The craft of love,
Oo-ooh...



Dali [Demo]



High, in Castille,
Lives senora Dali alone.
And higher still
She keeps her gallery.
Distance means nothing to me.
A-ee-aha-ee-aha-oo,
A-ee-aha-ee-aha-oo...

Debris everywhere,
Gazing. It's amazing.
Ferry me over,
Ferry me over,
Ferry me over
The music, Dali.

Deeper here lies hidden answers and treasures for him.
"Oh, I prefer absence," said she,
"My heart grows fonder alone."
A-ee-aha-ee-aha-oo,
A-ee-aha-ee-aha-oo...

Debris everywhere,
Gazing. It's amazing.
Ferry me over,
Ferry me over,
Ferry me over
The music, Dali.



December Will Be Magic Again [Single]



Doo do-do doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo do-do doo doo dooooo

December will be magic again.
Take a husky to the ice
While Bing Crosby sings White Christmas.
He makes you feel nice.

December will be magic again.
Old Saint Nicholas up the chimney,
Just a-popping up in my memory.

Ooh, dropping down in my parachute,
The white city, she is so beautiful
Upon the black-soot icicled roofs,
Ooh, and see how I fall.
See how I fall
Doo do-do doo doo doo doo doo doo do doooo
Like the snow.

Come to cover the lovers.
(Cover the lovers)
But don't you wake them up.
Come to sparkle the dark up.
(Sparkle the dark up)
With just a touch of make-up.
Come to cover the muck up.
(Cover the muck up)
Ooh, with a little luck.

December will be magic again.
Light the candle-lights
To conjure Mr. Wilde
Into the Silent Night.
Ooh, it's quiet inside,
Here in Oscar's mind.

December will be magic again.
Don't miss the brightest star.
Kiss under mistletoe.
I want to hear you laugh.
Don't let the mystery go now.

Ooh, dropping down in my parachute,
The white city, she is so beautiful
Upon the black-soot icicled roofs,
Ooh, and see how I fall.
Ooh, see how I fall.
Doo do-do doo doo doo doo doo doo do do-do do do dooo
("Fall!") [backwards]
Ooh, see how I fall.
Doo do-do doo doo doo doo doo doo do do-do do do dooo
("Fall!") [backwards]
Ooh, see how I fall.
Doo do-do doo
("Fall!") [backwards]
Like the snow.

Come to cover the lovers.
(Cover the lovers)
But don't you wake them up.
Come to sparkle the dark up.
(Sparkle the dark up)
With just a touch of make-up.
Come to cover the muck up.
(Cover the muck up)
Ooh, with a little luck.

Come to cover the lovers.
(Cover the lovers)
But don't you wake them up.
Come to sparkle the dark uuuuuuup.

Oh, I'm coming to cover the lovers.
Ooh, and I'm coming to sparkle the dark up, a-ha.
And I'm coming to cover the muck u-upup.
Oh, I'm coming to cover the lover-er-ers.
And I'm coming to sparkle the dark up, a-ha.



Deeper Understanding [Director's Cut]



As the people here grow colder
I turn to my computer
And spend my evenings with it
Like a friend.
I was loading a new program
I had ordered from a magazine:

"Are you lonely, are you lost?
This voice console is a must."

I press execute.

"Hello, I know that you've been feeling tired.
I bring you love and deeper understanding.
Hello, I know that you're unhappy.
I bring you love and deeper understanding."

Well I've never known such pleasure.
Nothing else seemed to matter.
I neglected my bodily needs.
I did not eat, I did not sleep,
The intensity increasing,
'Til my family found me and intervened.

But I was lonely, I was lost,
Oh so lost without my little black box.

I pick up the phone and press execute.

"Hello, I know that you've been feeling tired.
I bring you love and deeper understanding.

Hello.

I turn to my computer like a friend.

Hello?

Deeper Understanding [The Sensual World]



As the people here grow colder
I turn to my computer
And spend my evenings with it
Like a friend.
I was loading a new program
I had ordered from a magazine:

"Are you lonely, are you lost?
This voice console is a must."

I press Execute.

"Hello, I know that you've been feeling tired.
I bring you love and deeper understanding.
Hello, I know that you're unhappy.
I bring you love and deeper understanding."

Well I've never felt such pleasure.
Nothing else seemed to matter.
I neglected my bodily needs.
I did not eat, I did not sleep,
The intensity increasing,
'Til my family found me and intervened.

But I was lonely, I was lost,
Without my little black box.

I pick up the phone and go, Execute.

"Hello, I know that you've been feeling tired.
I bring you love and deeper understanding.
Hello, I know that you're unhappy.
I bring you love and deeper understanding."

Hello.
Love.
Hello.
Love and deeper understanding.

I turn to my computer like a friend.

[A chant]
"Hello"
"Hello"

I need deeper understanding.
Give me deeper understanding.

I hate to leave you
I hate to leave you
I hate to leave you
I hate to leave you
I hate to leave you
I hate to lose you



Delius (Song Of Summer) [Never For Ever]



(Delius)
Ooh, he's a moody old man.
(Delius)
Song of summer in his hand.
(Delius)
Ooh, he's a moody old man.
(Delius)
...in...in...in his hand.

To be sung of a summer
Night on the water.
Ooh, on the water.

On the water.



The Disbelieving Angel [Demo]



So much for all the prayers you've learned.
They are no help to basic needs.
And all the worlds they've shown you
Just make you even greedier.

So what about divinity?
I'm further away than before.
You're like two stars colliding,
And you're never going to hit the floor.

Why should I whisper in the church?
Because they say it's sacred ground?
Oh, my sacrilege would do you good.
You see, there's nothing here, I've found.

I feel so sorry for you,
Believing because they control.
And of all the guardian angels
They chose me to save your soul!

Oh, I'm just trying to explain,
I'm a disbelieving angel.



Do Bears...? [From Secret Policeman's Ball]



Rowan Atkinson:
For years I thought
I'd have to live alone
I never got a letter
Had to disconnect the phone
The only girls I ever saw
Were on TV
But now I've got a Venus
Who's sitting next to me

Both:
Do I love you?
Do I want you?
Would I give my life
To you if I could?
Do birds fly?
Do fish swim?
And do bears sha-la-la-la-la
In the woods?

Rowan:
I met her in the first class lounge
Of a jumbo jet
It was love at first sight
Romeo and Juliet
Kate:
He looked pretty rich
And I was down on m' luck
So I charged him a fortune
For a flying f...
Rowan:
...for crying out loud!

Both:
Do I love you?
Do I want you?
Would I sacrifice my life
To you if I could?
Is the Pope Catholic?
Is Luxembourg small?
And do those hairy bears shhh...
In the woods?

Rowan:
I introduced her round my friends
She was ace
I was no longer on Earth
But in better place
Kate:
He's an utter creep and he
Drives me round the bend
And so to alleviate the boredom
I sleep with his friends
Rowan:
Ho ha ho

Both:
Do I love you?
Do I want you?
Kate:
Would I tear out both my eyes
And fry them if I could?
Both:
Is the Bible fiction?
Is True Love a contradiction?
And do bears sha-la-la-la-la
In the woods?

Do I desire you?
Do I adore you?
Rowan:
Would I cut off all my toenails
And put them in an envelope with my feet?

Both:
Is Reagan Godhead?
Is Chairman Mao dead?
And do those bears sha-la-la-la-la?
Rowan [really Tim Brooke-Taylor]:
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-ah
Kate:
Mmmmm...
Rowan [Tim]:
And do those bears sha-la-la-la-la?
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-ah
Kate:
Ahoo Ahoo
Yeah-ye-yeah Yeah-ye-yeah
Both:
Do those bears sha-la-la-la-ah?
Rowan:
On Main Street
Kate:
Oh Yeah Yeah-ye-yeah



Don't Give Up [Peter Gabriel's album "So"]



In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
But no-one wants you when you lose

Don't give up
'cos you have friends
Don't give up
You're not beaten yet
Don't give up
I know you can make it good


Though I saw it all around
Never thought that I could be affected
Thought that we'd be last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, on the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground

Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up
We don't need much of anything
Don't give up
'cause somewhere there's a place
Where we belong
Rest your head
You worry too much
It's going to be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don't give up
Please don't give up

Got to walk out of here
I can't take any more
Going to stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come
And whatever may go
That river's flowing
That river's flowing

Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs

Don't give up
'cause you have friends
Don't give up
You're not the only one
Don't give up
No reason to be ashamed
Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up now
We're proud of who you are
Don't give up
You know its never been easy
Don't give up
'cause I believe there's a place
There's a place where we belong.



Don't Push Your Foot On The Heartbrake [Lionheart]



Emma's come down.
She's stopped the light
Shining out of her eyes.

Emma's been run out on.
She's breaking down
In so many places,
Stuck in low gears
Because of her fears

Of the skidding wheels,
(The skid of her wheels she feels.)
Skidding wheels,
(The skid of her wheels she feels.)
Spinning wheels.
(Wheel-skidding feeling.)

Her heart is there,
But they've greased the road.
Her heart is out there,
But she's no control.

Oh, come on, you've got to use your flow.
You know what it's like, and you know you want to go.
Don't drive too slowly.
Don't put your blues where your shoes should be.
Don't put your foot on the heartbrake.

(She's losing, she's losing, she's losing, she's losing...)

She's losing that inner flame.
It was burning bright,
But she's losing the light fast.

She's only herself to blame.
Well, take care of yourself,
And remember Georgie.
She's so O.D.'d on weeping
She can hardly see

That she's dropping beads.
(Red, red glass is bleeding.)
Dropping beads.
(Red, red glass is bleeding.)
Dropping beads.
(Red, red on the parquet.)

Her heart is there,
But they've greased the road.
Her heart is out there,
But she's no control.

Oh, come on, you've got to use your flow.
You know what it's like, and you know you want to go.
Don't drive too slowly.
Don't put your blues where your shoes should be.
Don't put your foot on the heartbrake.

Oh, come on, you've got to use your flow.
You know what it's like, and you know you want to go.
Don't drive too slowly.
Don't put your blues where your shoes should be.
Don't put your foot on the heartbrake.

The Dreaming [The Dreaming]



'Bang!' goes another kanga
On the bonnet of the van.
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."
Many an Aborigine's mistaken for a tree
'Til you near him on the motorway
And the tree begin to breathe.
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."

Coming in with the golden light
In the morning.
Coming in with the golden light
Is the New Man.
Coming in with the golden light
Is my dented van.

M-m-m-m-m-

Me-me-me-me-me."

The civilised keep alive
The territorial war.
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."
Erase the race that claim the place
And say we dig for ore,
Or dangle devils in a bottle
And push them from the Pull of the Bush.
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."
You find them in the road.
"See the light bounce off the rocks to the sand."
In the road.

Coming in with the golden light
In the morning.
Coming in with the golden light
With no warning.
Coming in with the golden light
We bring in the rigging.
(Dig, dig, dig away)

Woomera.

Eat The Music [The Red Shoes]



Split me open
"ee"
With devotion
"yay"
You put your hands in
"ooh"
And rip my heart out

Eat the music

Does he conceal

What he really feels?

He's a woman at heart
"ooh"

Insides out

All is revealed

Not only women bleed

Take the stone out
"ee"
Of the mango
"yay"
You put it in your mouth

You like a guava?
Grab a banana

Rip them to pieces

Split the banana
Crush the sultana

Split 'em open
"ee"
With devotion
"yay"
You put your hands in

Egypt [Never For Ever]



Follow the Nile
Deep to much deeper.
The Pyramids sound lonely tonight.

The sands run red
In lands of the Pharoahs.
Their symmetry gets right inside me.

I cannot stop to comfort them.
I'm busy chasing up my demon.
I cannot stop to comfort them.
I'm busy chasing up my demon.
Oh, I'm in love
With Egypt.

My pussy queen
Knows all my secrets.
I'll never fall in love again.

I drift with dunes.
I whisper of the tombs.
They offer me Egyptian delights.

She's got me with that feline guise,
Got me in those desert eyes.
She's got me with that feline guise,
Got me in those desert eyes.
Oh I'm in love
Oh I'm in love
Oh I'm in love
With Egypt.



The Empty Bullring [B-side of Breathing]



Disappears through a window
Out of my mind trying to keep him at home
Out into Rome in the early hours
Leaving me here like Tamlain in her Tower
You are going to the Empty Bullring
Taking your red cloak to regain something

Ooh you Rolling Matador
Kill in your eyes for the old Torre
Run home and shut the door
To Glory and gore
The throw of the Rose
It's all you lived for
But you've lost it all

Your Red Streak on the plot where many feet
Left in incomplete
But you kept the meaning
You feel him charge again
And you feel him cut you down
Right on the spot
Where you thought you were ground for good
These fights of fantasy
Make your wounds more sore
But you've every right
To even grab at the last straw
Oh Lord

Ooh you Rolling Matador
Kill in your eyes for the Torro
Run home and shut the door
To Glory and gore
The throw of the Rose
It's all you lived for
But you've lost it all

Lost it all
Lost it all oh-oh-oh



Experiment IV [12"]



We were working secretly
For the military.
Our experiment in sound,
Was nearly ready to begin.
We only know in theory
What we are doing:
Music made for pleasure,
Music made to thrill.
It was music we were making here until

They told us
All they wanted
Was a sound that could kill someone
From a distance.
So we go ahead,
And the meters are over in the red.
It's a mistake in the making.

From the painful cry of mothers,
To the terrifying scream,
We recorded it and put it into our machine.

?"I'll bet my mum's gonna give me a little toy instrument!"?
[haunting laughter]
"Five"
"Experiment four"
"Experiment four"
"Experiment four"
"Experiment four"
"Experiment four"
But that dream is your enemy.
[haunting laughter]

We won't be there to be blamed.
We won't be there to snitch.
I just pray that someone there
Can hit the switch.

But they told us
All they wanted
Was a sound that could kill someone
From a distance.
So we go ahead,
And the meters are over in the red.
It's a mistake we've made.

Hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm hmm.
And the public are warned to stay off.

Feel It [The Kick Inside]



After the party
You took me back to your parlour.
A little nervous laughter
Locking the door.
My stockings fall
Onto the floor.
Desperate for more.

Nobody else can share this.
Here comes one and one makes one,
The glorious union.
Well it could be love,
Or it could be just lust,
But it will be fun.
It will be wonderful.

Oh, feel it. Oh, oh feel it,
Feel it, my love.
Oh, feel it. Oh, oh feel it,
Feel it, my love.
Oh, I need it. Oh, oh, feel it,
Feel it, my love.
Feel it!
See what you're doing to me.
See what you're doing to me?

God, but you're beautiful, aren't you?
Feel your warm hand walking around.
I won't pull away.
My passion always wins.
Keep on a-moving in.
So keep on a-tuning in.
Synchronise rhythm now.

Oh, feel it. Oh, oh feel it,
Feel it, my love.
Oh, feel it. Oh, oh feel it,
Feel it, my love.
Oh, I need it. Oh, oh, feel it,
Feel it, my love.
Feel it!
See what you're doing to me.
See what you're doing to me?
See what you're doing to me!



The Fog [The Sensual World]



You see, I'm all grown up now.
He said,
"Just put your feet down child,
'Cause you're all grown up now."

Just like a photograph,
I pick you up.
Just like a station on the radio,
I pick you up.
Just like a face in the crowd,
I pick you up.
Just like a feeling that you're sending out,
I pick it up.
But I can't let you go.
If I let you go,
You slip into the fog.

This love was big enough for the both of us.
This love of yours was big enough to be frightened of.
It's deep and dark, like the water was,
The day I learned to swim.

He said, "Just put your feet down, child."

"Just put your feet down child,
The water is only waist high.
I'll let go of you gently,
Then you can swim to me."

Is this love big enough to watch over me?
Big enough to let go of me
Without hurting me,
Like the day I learned to swim?

"'Cause you're all grown up now."

"Just put your feet down, child,
The water is only waist high.
I'll let go of you gently,
Then you can swim to me."



Flowers [Zaine Griff's album "Figures" (backing vocals)]



You brought us flowers to share
Beautiful flowers to share
Left them with #love in some cafe#
Danced with #ghosts of Genet#
You danced for hours.
You brought us flowers to share
Tranquil perfumes fill the air
I find it #hard to explain it#.
How does #one explain this#
That you brought us flowers
With so much love to share.
You brought us flowers
With so much love to share.
Into this dream you found the door
that introduced your dreams
Where sailors dance, pimps and whores
Don't even stand a chance,
With sailors.
Your life is #sad, there's no life sadder#
It's something #love can't make better#.
Yet you brought us flowers
With so much love to share.
You brought us flowers
With so much love to share.
(Jean Genet)
You brought us flowers
With so much love to share.
(Jean Genet)
You brought us flowers
(Jean Genet)
With so much love to share.
You brought us flowers
(Jean Genet)
With so much love to share.



Flower Of The Mountain [Director's Cut]



Ahh...
Ahh...
Yes
First I gave him the bit of seedcake out of my mouth
It was leap year like now, yes
Sixteen years ago my God after that long kiss
I nearly lost my breath, oh yes
He said I was a flower of the mountain, yes
So we are flowers o'er a woman's body, yes

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world
Stepping out

And you brought her as a girl
With hours of a flower of the mountain, ah yes
When I put the rose in my hair
Like the angels young girls used
What shall I wear, all wet, yes
And how he kissed me under the moorish wall
And I thought: Oh well, as well him as another

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world
Stepping out, off the page, into the sensual world

And then I asked him with my eyes to ask again, yes
And then he asked me would I?
Yes, to say yes
My mountain flower
And first I put my arms around him, yes
And drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts
Oh perfume yes

Oh his heart was going like mad
And yes I said: yes, I will, yes

Hmm.. yes



Frightened Eyes [Demo]



Just travelling on a bus
From a friend's house,
And all these people are looking at me.
They're gazing out windows,
In any English country gardens.

But as gazes meet,
Vacancy shows on screen.
But I feel inside
The latent hysteria:
"Why is she looking at me?"

And as I drift from one to one I can see
They're all like me.
They've all got frightened eyes
Saying what they're thinking,
What they are doing tonight.

They've all got frightened eyes,
Saying, "Leave me alone,
I'm perfectly safe here inside.
Please don't surprise me."

Expressionless.
Everyone here loves cheap wine
We all know good taste,
We just get too busy trying to find
The right games to play.

Impatient, aren't we all?
Watching the time trip by.
And all these people are looking at me.
They're gazing out windows.
They're burning up in there.

And as I drift from one to one I can see
They're all like me.
They've all got frightened eyes
Saying what they're thinking,
What they are doing tonight.

They've all got frightened eyes,
Saying, "Leave me alone,
I'm perfectly safe here inside.
Please don't surprise me."



Full House [Lionheart]



Driving back in her car.
Watching the wipers
Squashing the leaves away.
Suddenly there in the road
Is your old self,
Trying to get out of the rain.

I am my enemy
Mowing me over,
And towing the light away.
Somehow it just seems to fit
With that old me,
Trying to get back again.

Imagination sets in.
Then all the voices begin.
Telling you things that aren't happening.
(But they nig and they nag, 'til they're under your skin.)

(You've really got to)
Remember yourself.
You've got a Full House in your head tonight
(You've got to, you've got to)
Remember yourself.
Stand back and see emotion getting you uptight.

My silly pride
Digging the knife in.
She loves to come for her ride.
Surely by now I should know
I can control
My highs and my lows

By questioning all that I do,
Examining every move,
Trying to get back to the rudiments.
(If they nig and they nag, I'll just put in the boot.)

(You've really got to)
Remember yourself.
You've got a Full House in your head tonight
(You've got to, you've got to)
Remember yourself.
Stand back and see emotion getting you uptight.

Remember yourself.
You've got a Full House in your head tonight
(You've got to, you've got to)
Remember yourself.
Stand back and see emotion getting you uptight.



The Gay Farewell [Demo Usual]



I've never seen
Such a sad queen
As Eddie.
I've seen him raving,
Maybe even in pain,
But never
Weeping like a baby.

On Saturday afternoon
He was really fine to him.
But on Saturday evening,
Oh, well Eddie was so pretty.
But now his boy is leaving.

Hey, boy, you're so young
To be a queen weeping.
You're just a little princess.
Oh, Eddie, don't!
Cause what can I do
But listen to you tell your story?

On Saturday afternoon
He was really fine to him.
But on Saturday evening,
Oh, well Eddie was so pretty.
But now his boy is leaving.
But now his boy is leaving.
But now his boy is leaving him.

Queenie, come home soon!



The Gay Farewell [Demo Early]



I've never seen
Such a sad queen
As Eddie.
I've seen him raving,
Maybe even in pain,
But never
Weeping like a baby.

On Saturday afternoon
He was really fine to him.
But on Saturday evening,
Oh, well Eddie was so pretty.
But now his boy is leaving.

Hey, boy, you're so young
To be a queen weeping.
Such a little princess.
Oh, Eddie, don't!
'Cause what can I do
But listen to you tell your story?

On Saturday afternoon
He was really fine to him.
But on Saturday evening,
Oh, well Eddie was so pretty.
But now his boy is leaving.
But now his boy is leaving.
Now he's leaving.

Queenie, come home soon!



Games Without Frontiers [Peter Gabriel's album "3" (backing vocals)]



Hans plays with Lotte, Lotte plays with Jane
Jane plays with Willi, Willi is happy again
Suki plays with Leo, Sacha plays with Britt
Adolf builts a bonfire, Enrico plays with it
Whistling tunes we hid in the dunes by the seaside
Whistling tunes we're kissing baboons in the jungle
It's a knockout
If looks could kill, they probably will
In games without frontiers-war without tears
Games without frontiers-war without tears

Jeux sans frontières

Andre has a red flag, Chiang Ching's is blue
They all have hills to fly them on except for Lin Tai Yu
Dressing up in costumes, playing silly games
Hiding out in tree-tops shouting out rude names
Whistling tunes we hide in the dunes by the seaside
Whistling tunes we piss on the goons in the jungle
It's a knockout
If looks could kill they probably will
In games without frontiers-wars without tears
If looks could kill they probably will
In games without frontiers-war without tears
Games without frontiers-war without tears

Get Out Of My House [The Dreaming]



"Hee-haw! Hee-haw! Hee-haw!"
When you left, the door was
(slamming!)
You paused in the doorway
(slamming!)
As though a thought stole you away.
(slamming!)
I watch the world pull you away.

Get out of my house!
No stranger's feet
Will enter me.
(Get out of my house!)
I wash the panes,
(Get out of my house!)
I clean the stains away.

This house is as old as I am.

I will not let you in!
Don't you bring back the reveries.
I turn into a bird,
Carry further than the word is heard.

"Woman let me in!
I turn into the wind.
I blow you a cold kiss,
Stronger than the song's hit."

I will not let you in.
I face towards the wind.
I change into the Mule.

Hammer Horror [Lionheart]



You stood in the belltower,
But now you're gone.
So who knows all the sights
Of Notre Dame?

They've got the stars for the gallant hearts.
I'm the replacement for your part.
All I want to do is forget
You, friend.

Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror,
Won't leave me alone.
The first time in my life,
I keep the lights on
To ease my soul.
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror,
Won't leave it alone.
I don't know,
Is this the right thing to do?

Rehearsing in your things,
I feel guilty.
And retracing all the scenes,
Of your big hit,

Oh, God, you needed the leading role.
It wasn't me who made you go, though.
Now all I want to do is forget
You, friend.

Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror,
Won't leave me alone.
The first time in my life,
I keep the lights on
To ease my soul.
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror,
Won't leave it alone.
I don't know,
Is this the right thing to do?

Oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh ooh oh-oh-oh-oh.
Oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh ooh.

Who calls me from the other side
Of the street?
And who taps me on the shoulder?
I turn around, but you're gone.

I've got a hunch that you're following,
To get your own back on me.
All I want to do is forget
You, friend.

Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror,
Won't leave me alone.
The first time in my life,
I keep the lights on
To ease my soul.
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror,
Won't leave it alone.
I don't know,
Is this the right thing to do?



Hammer Horror [Demo]



Who stands in the belltower,
Now you're gone.
And who knows all the sights
Of Notre Dame?

You knew the girls and the times,
You knew the rites and the rhymes.
Now they're trying to push me into your name.

Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror,
Won't leave it alone.
The first time in my life,
The first break of my life,
Wh(ere) I've let'em go.
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror,
Won't leave it alone.
Oh no,
It's not the right thing to do!

Who calls me from the other side
Of the street?
And who taps me on the shoulder?
I turn around, but you're gone.

You know my mind and my heart.
So you should know I wouldn't take your part.
All I want to do is forget
You, friend.

Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror,
Won't leave it alone.
The first time in my life,
The first break of my life,
Wh(ere) I've letten go.
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror,
Won't leave it alone.
Oh no,
It's not the right thing to do!



The Handsome Cabin Boy [B-side of Hounds Of Love]



'Tis of a pretty female
As you may understand.
Her mind being bent for rambling
Unto some foreign land,
She dressed herself in sailor's clothes,
Or so it does appear,
And she hired with a captain
To serve him for a year.

[The captain's wife she being on board,
She seemed in great joy
To think the captain had engaged
Such a handsome cabin boy,
That now and then she'd slip him a kiss,
And she'd have liked to toy,
But 'twas the captain found out the secret
Of the handsome cabin boy.] verse missed by KB

Her cheeks they were like roses
And her hair rolled in a curl.
The sailors often smiled and said
He looked just like a girl.
But eating of the captain's biscuit
Her colour did destroy,
And the waist did swell of pretty Nell,
The handsome cabin boy.

'Twas in the bay of Biscay
Our gallant ship did plow.
One night among the sailors
Was a fearful flurry and row.
They tumbled from their hammocks
For their sleep it did destroy,
And they sworn about the groaning
Of the handsome cabin boy.

"Oh doctor, dear, oh doctor,"
The cabin boy did cry.
"My time has come, I am undone,
And I will surely die."
The doctor come a-runnin'
And a-smilin' at the fun.
To think a sailor lad should have
A daughter or a son.

The sailors when they saw the joke
They all did stand and stare.
The child belonged to none of them,
They solemnly did swear.
The captain's wife, she says to him,
"My dear, I wish you joy,
For 'tis either you or me's betrayed
The handsome cabin boy!"

[Now sailors, take your tot of rum
And drink success to trade,
And likewise to the cabin boy
That was neither man nor maid.
Here's hoping the wars don't rise again
Our sailors to destroy,
And here's hoping for a jolly lot more
Like the handsome cabin boy.] verse missed by KB



Heads We're Dancing [The Sensual World]



You talked me into the game of chance.
It was '39, before the music started,
When you walked up to me and you said,
"Hey, heads we dance."
Well, I didn't know who you were
Until I saw the morning paper:

There was a picture of you
A picture of you 'cross the front page.
It looked just like you, just like you in every way.
But it couldn't be true.
It couldn't be true.
You stepped out of a stranger.

They say that the Devil is a charming man.
And just like you I bet he can dance.
And he's coming up behind in his long
Tailed black coat dance,
All tails in the air.
But the penny landed with its head dancing.

A picture of you, a picture of you in uniform,
Standing with your head held high,
Hot down to the floor.
But it couldn't be you.
It couldn't be you.
It's a picture of Hitler.

He go do-do-do-do-do
He go do-do-do-do-do
He go do-do-do-do-do
Do you want to dance?

Well, I couldn't see what was to be,
So I just stood there laughing.

A picture of you, a picture of you in uniform,
Standing with your head held high,
Hot down to the floor.
But it couldn't be you.
It couldn't be you.
It's a picture of Hitler.

He go mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh
He go mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh
He go mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh
Heads we're dancing.

do-do-do-do-do
do-do-do-do-do
do-do-do-do-do
Do you want to dance?

a-mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh
a-mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh
a-mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh
Heads we're dancing.

Hello Earth [Hounds Of Love/The Ninth Wave]



"Columbia now at nine times the speed of sound."
"Roger that, Dan, I've got a solid TACAN locked on,
uh, TACAN two and three."
"The, uh, tracking data, map data and pre-planned
trajectory are all one line on the block"
"Show your block decode..."

Hello, Earth.
"Hello Earth"
Hello, Earth.
"Hello Earth"
With just one hand held up high
I can blot you out,
Out of sight.

Peek-a-boo,
Peek-a-boo, little Earth.
With just my heart and my mind
I can be driving,
Driving home,
And you asleep
On the seat.

I get out of my car,
Step into the night
And look up at the sky.
And there's something bright,
Travelling fast.
Just look at it go!
Just look at it go!

[A Georgian traditional song "Tsiv Tskaro" is sung here]

("Listen!")
Hello Earth
Hello Earth

Watching storms
Start to form
Over America.
Can't do anything.
Just watch them swing
With the wind
Out to sea.

All you sailors,
("Get out of the waves! Get out of the water!")
All life-savers,
("Get out of the waves! Get out of the water!")
All you cruisers,
("Get out of the waves! Get out of the water!")
All you fishermen,
Head for home.

Go to sleep, little Earth.
I was there at the birth,
Out of the cloudburst,
The head of the tempest.
Murderer!
Murder of calm.
Why did I go?
Why did I go?

[A Georgian traditional song "Tsiv Tskaro" is sung several times]

"Tiefer, tiefer, irgendwo in der Tiefe gibt es ein Licht."
[English: Deeper,deeper somewhere in the deep there is a light]

Go to sleep little Earth.



Home For Christmas [B-side of Rubberband Girl]



You know that I'll be waiting
To hear your footsteps saying
That you'll be coming home for Christmas.

Please say you won't forget me
That every moment's empty
But only 'til you're coming home for Christmas.

If I only had wings
Then I would fly to you
Through all the snowy weather
We'd be together ---
No-one makes me feel the way you do.

You know that I'll be waiting
To hear your footsteps saying
That you'll be coming home,

Home for Christmas.



Houdini [The Dreaming]



I wait at the table,
And hold hands with weeping strangers,
Wait for you
To join the group.

The tambourine jingle-jangles.
The medium roams and rambles.
Not taken in,
I break the circle.

I want this man
To go away now.

With a kiss
I'd pass the key
And feel your tongue
Teasing and receiving.
With your spit
Still on my lip
You hit the water.

Him and I in the room
To prove you are with us too.

He's using code that only you and I know.
This is no trick of his.
This is your magic.

I'd catch the cues,
Watching you,
Hoping you'd do something wrong.

Everybody thinks you'll never make it,
But every time,
You escape!

Rosabel believe,
Not even eternity
Can hold Houdini!

"Rosabel, believe!"

Through the glass
I'd watch you breathe.
Bound and drowned,
And paler than you've ever been.

With your life
The only thing in my mind
We pull you from the water!

Houdini!

You
And I
And Rosabel believe.



Hounds Of Love [Hounds Of Love]



"It's in the trees!
It's coming!"

When I was a child:
Running in the night,
Afraid of what might be

Hiding in the dark,
Hiding in the street,
And of what was following me...

(do do do do do dooo)
Now hounds of love are hunting.
(oh oh oh oh oh oh-ooh)
I've always been a coward,
(oh oh oh oh oh oh-ooh)
And I don't know what's good for me.

Oh here I go!
It's coming for me through the trees.
Oh help me, someone!
Help me, please!

And take my shoes off,
And throw them in the lake,
And I'll be two steps on the water.

I found a fox
Caught by dogs.
He let me take him in my hands.

His little heart,
It beat so fast,
And I'm ashamed of running away
From nothing real
I just can't deal with this,
But I'm still afraid to be there,

(do do do do do dooo)
Among your hounds of love,
(oh oh oh oh oh oh-ooh)
And feel your arms surround me.
(oh oh oh oh oh oh-ooh)
I've always been a coward.
(oh oh oh oh oh oh-ooh)
Mmmm, and never know what's good for me.

Oh, here I go!
Don't let me go!
Hold me down!
It's coming for me through the trees.
Oh help me, darling,
Help me, please!

And take my shoes off
And throw them in the lake,
And I'll be two steps on the water.
(do do do do do dooo)

I don't know what's good for me.
I don't know what's good for me.
I need love love love love love love, yeah!
Your yeah your your love!
(do do do dooo)

Take your shoes off
And throw them in the lake!

Do you know what I really need?
Do you know what I really need?
I need love love love love love love, yeah!



Hounds Of Love [The Alternative Version]



When I was a child running away from nothing
Heading for home (didi-do do didi-dow dow)
Now hounds of love are hunting (didi-do do didi-dow dow)
I've always been a coward (didi-do do didi-dow dow)
And I don't know what's good for me

C'mon and run, run, run, run, run, run honey
Run from the hounds of love
Run, run, run, run, run, run honey

How To Be Invisible [Aerial]



I found a book on how to be invisible
Take a pinch of keyhole
And fold yourself up
You cut along the dotted line
You think inside out
And you're invisible

Eye of Braille
Hem of anorak
Stem of wallflower
Hair of doormat

I found a book on how to be invisible
On the edge of the labyrinth
Under a veil you must never lift
Pages you must never turn
In the labyrinth
You stand in front of a million doors
And each one holds a million more
Corridors that lead to the world
Of the invisible
Corridors that twist and turn
Corridors that blister and burn

Eye of Braille
Hem of anorak
Stem of wallflower
Hair of doormat

Is that the wind from the desert song?
Is that an autumn leaf falling?
Or is that you, walking home?
Is that the wind from the desert song?
Is that an autumn leaf falling?
Or is that you, walking home?
Is that a storm in the swimming pool?

You take a pinch of keyhole
And fold yourself up
You cut along the dotted lines
And think inside out
You jump 'round three times
You jump into the mirror
And you're invisible

I'm Still Waiting [Aspects Of The Sensual World]



Ah-um Ah-um Ah-um Ah-ummmm

Somewhere a door is opening
Somewhere a door is closing
Somewhere somebody dies
Somewhere a newborn baby cries

Maybe the love has gone, but there's
Still a heart that's beating
Though the clouds have come
Maybe the sun will come out
The storm is coming back
Maybe you'll be coming back

'Coz I'm still waiting
Baby well I'm still waiting
Ah-um Ah-um Ah-um Ah-ummmm
Baby well I'm still waiting

Somewhere a door is opening
Maybe the love has gone but there's still
A heart that's beating
Tough the clouds have come
Maybe the sun will come out
Maybe you'll be coming back
'Coz there's still a heart that's beating
Though the clouds have come
Maybe the sun will come out

Maybe you'll be coming back
There's still a heart that's beating
Maybe the sun will come out
They say the storm will be coming back
Maybe you'll be coming back

'Coz I'm still waiting
Ah-um Ah-um Ah-um Ah-ummmm
I'm still waiting
Ooh I'm waiting
Hmmmmm-aaah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah waiting
Ooh I'm waiting

In Search Of Peter Pan [Lionheart]



It's been such a long week.
So much crying.
I no longer see a future.
I've been told when I get older
That I'll understand it all.

But I'm not sure if I want to.

Running into her arms
At the school gates
She whispers that I'm a poor kid.
And Granny takes me on her knee.
She tells me I'm too sensitive.
She makes me sad.

She makes me feel like an old man.
She makes me feel like an old man.

They took the game right out of it.
They took the game right out of it.

When I am a man
I will be an astronaut,
And find Peter Pan.

Second star on the right,
Straight on 'til morning.
Second star on the right,
Straight on 'til morning.
Second star on the right,
Straight on 'til morning.

Dennis loves to look
In the mirror.
He tells me that he is beautiful.
So I look too, and what do I see?
My eyes are full,
But my face is empty.

He's got a photo
Of his hero.
He keeps it under his pillow.
But I've got a pin-up
From a newspaper
Of Peter Pan.

I found it in a locket.
(I found it in a locket)
I hide it in my pocket.

They took the game right out of it.
They took the game right out of it.

When I am a man
I will be an astronaut,
And find Peter Pan.

Second star on the right,
Straight on 'til morning.
Second star on the right,
Straight on 'til morning.
Second star on the right,
Straight on 'til morning.

"When you wish upon a star,
Makes no difference who you are.
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true."



In The Warm Room [Lionheart]



In the warm room
Her perfume reaches you.
Eventually you'll fall for her.
Down you'll go
To where the mellow wallows.

In the warm room
She'll touch you with your Mamma's hand.
You'll long to kiss those red lips,
But when you do
It'll feel like kicking a habit.

She'll tell you that she'll stay,
Oh, so you'd better barricade the way out.
She'll tell you she's true.
She'll tell you she loves you.
She's waiting in that warm room.

In the warm room
She prepares to go to bed.
She'll let you watch her undress,
Go places where
Your fingers long to linger.

In the warm room
You'll fall into her like a pillow.
Her thighs are soft as marshmallows.
Say hello
To the soft musk of her hollows.

She'll tell you that she'll stay,
Oh, so you'd better barricade the way out.
She'll tell you she's true.
She'll tell you she loves you.
She's waiting in that warm room.

In the warm room.

She's waiting in that warm room.



The Infant Kiss [Never For Ever]



I say good night-night.
I tuck him in tight.
But things are not right.

What is this? An infant kiss
That sends my body tingling?

I've never fallen for
A little boy before.
No control.

Just a kid and just at school.
Back home they'd call me dirty.
His little hand is on my heart.
He's got me where it hurts me.
Knock, knock. Who's there in this baby?
You know how to work me.

All my barriers are going.
It's starting to show.
Let go. Let go.
Let go. Let go. Let go.

I cannot sit and let
Something happen I'll regret.
Ooh, he scares me!

There's a man behind those eyes.
I catch him when I'm bending.

Ooh, how he frightens me
When they whisper privately.
(Poor, stupid girl!)
Windy-wailey blows me.

Words of caress on their lips
That speak of adult love.
I want to smack but I hold back.
I only want to touch.
But I must stay and find a way
To stop before it gets too much!

All my barriers are going.
It's starting to show.
Let go. Let go.
(Don't let go)
Let go. Let go. Let go.



It Hurts Me [Demo]



Slipping past the chimney-pots,
Down among the ashes, away from old times
Why must I self-indulge in memories?
I should be celebrating to a moving melody,

But it hurts me, it hurts me,
Honey, honey, it hurts me.
And I'm feeling like a waltz,
Growing old, old, old, old, old.

I was fiery but you put me out.
I was always one for loving and leaving.
I like to think I was immune to romance.
I should be laughing at some good old comedy.

Oh, but it hurts me, it hurts me.
Honey, honey, it hurts me.
And I'm feeling like a waltz.

If you laughed at me, I'd laugh too.
Waltz, don't you know that I'd be really breaking.
L'amour marche avec un etranger.
I shouldn't care, you're not my darling anymore,

But it hurts me, it hurts me,
Honey, honey, honey, honey.
And I'm feeling like a waltz,
Growing old, old, old, old, old.



James And The Cold Gun [The Kick Inside]



James, come on home.
You've been gone too long, baby.
We can't let our hero
Die alone.

We miss you day and night.
You left town to live by the rifle.
You left us to fight,
But it just ain't right to take away the light.

Remember Genie from the casino?
She's still a-waiting in that big brass bed.
The boys from your gang are knocking whisky back,
'Til they get out of hand and wish they were dead.
They're only lonely for the life that they led
With their old friend.

Ooh, James, are you selling your soul to a cold gun?

Where lies your heart?
It's not there in the buckskin, baby.
It's not there in the gin
That makes you laugh long and loud.

You're a coward, James.
You're running away from humanity.
You're running away from reality.
It won't be funny when they rat-a-tat-tat you down.

Jig Of Life [Hounds Of Love/The Ninth Wave]



Hello, old lady.
I know your face so well.
I know it well.

She says,
"Ooh-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na!
I'll be sitting in your mirror.
Now is the place where the crossroads meet.
Will you look into the future?

"Never, never say goodbye
To my part of your life.
No, no, no, no, no!
Oh, oh, oh,

"Let me live!"
She said.
"C'mon and let me live, girl!"
She said,
"C'mon and let me live, girl!"
("C'mon and let me live!")

"This moment in time,"
(She said.)
It doesn't belong to you,"
(She said,)
It belongs to me,

"And to your little boy and to your little girl,
And the one hand clapping:
Where on your palm is my little line,
When you're written in mine
As an old memory?
Ooh,
na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-

"Never, never say goodbye
To my part of your life.
Oh no, no, no, no, no!
Never, never, never!
Never, never let me go!"

She said,
"C'mon and let me live, girl!'
("C'mon and let me live!")
She said,
"C'mon and let me live, girl!"
("C'mon and let me live!")

I put this moment..............................................here.
I put this moment.........................here.
I put this moment

"Over here!
"Over here!
Can't you see where memories are kept bright?
Tripping on the water like a laughing girl.
Time in her eyes is spawning past life,
Run on the ocean and the woman unfurls,
Holding all the love that waits for you here.
Catch us now for I am your future.
A kiss on the wind and we'll make the land.
Come over here to where When lingers,
Waiting in this empty world,
Waiting for Then, when the lifespray cools.
For Now does ride in on the curl of the wave,
And you will dance for me in the sunlit pools.
We are of the going water and the gone.
We are of water and the holy land of water
And all that's to come runs in
With the thrust on the strand."



Joanni [Aerial]



All the banners stop waving
And the flags stop flying
And the silence comes over
Thousands of soldiers
Thousands of soldiers

Who is that girl?
Do I know her face?
Who is that girl?

Joanni, Joanni wears a golden cross
And she looks so beautiful in her armour
Joanni, Joanni blows a kiss to God
And she never wears a ring on her finger

All the cannon are firing
And the swords are clashing
And the horses are charging
And the flags are flying
And the battle is raging
And the bells, the bells are ringing

Who is that girl?
Do I know her face?
Who is that girl?

Joanni, Joanni wears a golden cross
And she looks so beautiful in her armour
Joanni, Joanni blows a kiss to God
And she never wears a ring on her finger
Joanni, Joanni, Joanni, Joanni blows a kiss to God
And she just looks beautiful in her armour
Beautiful in her armour

Elle parle à Dieu {She talks to God}
Et aux anges {And to angels}
Dans ses prières {In her prayers}

Venez Sainte-Catherine {Come Saint Catherine}
Venez Sainte Marguerite {Come Saint Marguerite}
Elle a besoin de vous deux {She needs you both}

Les voix, les voix du feu {The voices, the voices of fire}
Chante avec moi petite soeur {Sing with me little sister}
Ah, les voix, les voix {Ah, the voices, the voices}



Kashka From Baghdad [Lionheart]



Kashka from Baghdad
Lives in sin, they say,
With another man,
But no one knows who.

Old friends never call there.
Some wonder if life's
Inside at all
If there's life inside at all.

But we know the lady who rents the room.
She catches them calling a la lune.

At night
They're seen
Laughing,
Loving.
They know
The way
To be
Happy.

They never go for walks.
Maybe it's because
The moon's not bright enough.
There's light in love, you see.

I watch their shadows,
Tall and slim,
In the window opposite.
I long to be with them.

'Cause when all the alley-cats come out,
I can hear music from Kashka's house.

At night
They're seen
Laughing,
Loving.
They know
The way
To be
Happy.

"Watching every night.
Don't you know they're seen?
Won't you let me laugh?
Let me in your love.

"Watching every night.
Don't you know they're seen?
Won't you let me laugh?
Let me in your love.

"Watching every night.
Don't you know they're seen?
Won't you let me laugh?
Let me in your love.

"Watching every night.
Don't you know they're seen?
Won't you let me laugh?"



Kashka From Baghdad [Demo]



Kashka from Baghdad
Lives in sin, they say,
With another man,
But no one knows who.

Dark lights at night.
No one thinks there's life inside at all,
That there's life inside at all.

Except for the ladies who clean the house,
Except for the men who put the garbage out.

At night
They're seen
Laughing,
Dancing.
They know
The way
To be
Happy.

Never go for walks.
Maybe it's because
The moon's not bright enough.
They're blind in love, you see.

I watch their shadows,
Tall and slim,
In the window opposite.
I long to be with them.

What would I do if I were seen?
What would I do if they knew my feelings?

At night
They're seen
Laughing,
Loving.
They know
The way
To be
Happy.

The Kick Inside [The Kick Inside]



I've pulled down my lace and the chintz.
Oh, do you know you have the face of a genius?
I'll send your love to Zeus.
Oh, by the time you read this,
I'll be well in touch.

I'm giving it all in a moment or two.
I'm giving it all in a moment, for you.
I'm giving it all, giving it, giving it, giving it.
This kicking here inside
Makes me leave you behind.
No more under the quilt
To keep you warm.
Your sister I was born.
You must lose me like an arrow,
Shot into the killer storm.

You and me on the bobbing knee.
Didn't we cry at that old mythology he'd read!
I will come home again, but not until
The sun and the moon meet on yon hill.

I'm giving it all in a moment or two.
I'm giving it all in a moment, for you.
I'm giving it all, giving it, giving it, giving it.

The King Is Dead [Go West's album "Dancing On The Couch" (backing vocals)]



The king is dead
No doubt about it
We came a long way
Just to say goodbye
And in the end
It was some old swansong
The king is dead
You'd never know it
But we got pictures
Of a different man
He's flesh and blood
No-one knows all the answers
Some days we just do the best we can

You changed my mind in a minute
It breaks my heart to admit it
Don't make me say...

The king is dead
The show is over
We came a long way
Just to turn around
Lesson learned
No-one knows all the answers
Some days we just do the best we can

You changed my mind in a minute
It breaks my heart to admit it
Don't make me say...

You let me in behind the lies
But you're no use to me lifesize
No-one's to blame

Some days we just do the best we can



Kidnapped On A Building Site [Demo]


Ohh

I don't remember
How I came here
I've been shouting out for hours
(Ohh)

Oh they tied me
And they hided me
And I felt alone and cower ohh

This is an unknown address
In a rescued party
Just taken my test
Too long to beat on my death
I've gotta find a way to get out of here

Ohh
Wait

Scissors on a table
(Too far away)
And am I ready am I able?
(We couldn't say)
Will I leave them with a fable?
(Huh? no way!)
Oh I'm banging on the ceiling
(Watch for the plane)
My body is a bleeding
(Get down and pray)
But there isn't anybody in
(All away)
All away, all away

Ohh
Wait

I can hear engines in the distance
And I know that we're in tough land
(Ohh)
Think of my mother
Cry for my brothers
And there's only one can help me
Me!

This is an unknown address
(? ? ? ?)
Gone and taken my test
No place to take up my rest
I've gotta find a way to get out of here

Ohh
Wait

Scissors on a table
(Too far away)
Am I ready am I able?
(We couldn't say)
Well could I leave them with a fable?
(Huh? no way!)
Oh I'm banging on the ceiling
(Watch for the plane)
Well my body is a bleeding
(Get down and pray)
But there isn't anybody in
(All away)
All away, all away

King Of The Mountain [Aerial]



Could you see the aisles of women?
Could you see them screaming and weeping?
Could you see the storm rising?
Could you see the guy who was driving?
Could you climb higher and higher?
Could you climb right over the top?
Why does a multi-millionaire
Fill up his home with priceless junk?

The wind is whistling
The wind is whistling
Through the house

Elvis are you out there somewhere
Looking like a happy man?
In the snow with Rosebud
And king of the mountain

Another Hollywood waitress
Is telling us shes having your baby
And theres a rumour that youre on ice
And you will rise again someday
And that theres a photograph
Where youre dancing on your grave

The wind is whistling
The wind is whistling
Through the house

Elvis are you out there somewhere
Looking like a happy man?
In the snow with Rosebud
And king of the mountain

The wind it blows
The wind it blows the door closed



Kite [The Kick Inside]



(Come up and be kite)

Beelzebub is aching in my belly-o.
My feet are heavy and I'm rooted in my wellios.
(oh oh oh)
And I want to get away and go
(I wanna be)
From all these
(I wanna be home)
Mirror windows.

I look at eye level, it isn't good enough.
And then I find it out when I take a good look up.
There's a hole in the sky
(there's a hole in the)
With a big eyeball
(there's a hole in the sky)
Calling me:

"Come up and be a kite,
And fly a diamond night!
A diamond kite, a diamond kite.
Ooh, what a diamond!

"A diamond kite
On a diamond flight.
Over the lights, under the moon.
Over the lights, under the moon.
Over the moon, over the moon!"

(Come up and be kite)

I feel a rush along my body, like a bullet.
I'm 2-D after a push-and-pull feeling.
And I want to get back to
(I wanna be)
Safe home.
(I wanna be home)
I love the homeland dome.

I got no limbs, I'm like a feather on the wind.
Well, I'm not sure if I want to be up here, at all.
And I'd like to be
(I'd like to be)
Back on the ground,
(I'd like to be down)
But I don't know how to get down, down, down, down!

"Come up and be a kite,
And fly a diamond night!
A diamond kite, a diamond kite.
Ooh, what a diamond!

"A diamond kite
On a diamond flight.
Over the lights, oooh, under the moon.
Over the lights, oooh, under the moon.
Over the moon, over the moon!"

(Come up and be kite)
(Come up and be kite)

Lake Tahoe [50 Words For Snow]



Lake Tahoe.
Cold mountain water. Don't ever swim there.
Just stand on the edge and look in there.
And you might see a woman down there.
They say some days, up she comes, up she rises, as if out of nowhere.
Wearing Victorian dress.
She was calling her pet, "Snowflake! Snowflake!"
Tumbling like a cloud that has drowned in the lake.
Just like a poor, porcelain doll...
Her eyes are open but no-one's home.
The clock has stopped.
So long she's gone.
No-one's home.
Her old dog is sleeping.
His legs are frail now.
But when he dreams,
He runs...
Along long beaches and sticky fields.
Through the Spooky Wood looking for her.
The beds are made. The table is laid.
The door is open - someone is calling: It's a woman.
"Here boy, here boy! You've come home!
I've got an old bone and a biscuit and so much love.
Miss me? Did you miss me?
Here's the kitchen - There's your basket.
Here's the hall - That's where you wait for me.
Here's the bedroom - You're not allowed in there.
Here's my lap - That's where you lay your head.
Here boy, oh you're a good boy.
You've come home.
You've come home."



L'Amour Looks Something Like You [The Kick Inside]



You came out of the night,
Wearing a mask in white colour.
My eyes were shining
On the wine, and your aura.
All in order, we move into the boudoir,
But too soon the morning has resumed.

I'm hanging on the Old Goose Moon.
You look like an angel,
Sleeping it off at a station.
Were you only passing through?

I'm dying for you just to touch me,
And feel all the energy rushing right up-a-me.
L'amour looks something like you.

The thought of you sends me shivery.
I'm dressed in lace, sailing down a black reverie.
My heart is thrown
To the pebbles and the boatmen.
All the time I find I'm living in that evening,
With that feeling of sticky love inside.

I'm hanging on the Old Goose Moon.
You look like an angel,
Sleeping it off at a station.
Were you only passing through?

I'm dying for you just to touch me,

Leave It Open [The Dreaming]



With my ego in my gut,
My babbling mouth would wash it up.
(But now I've started learning how)
I keep it shut.

My door was never locked,
'Til one day a trigger come cocking.
(But now I've started learning how)
I keep it shut.

My eyes would creep and dust
things that decay things that rust.
(But now I've started learning how)
I keep them shut.

(Harm in us, but power to arm)
Harm is in us.

Narrow mind would persecute it,
Die a little to get to it.
(But now I've started learning how)
I leave it open.
I kept it in a cage,
Watched it weeping, but I made it stay.
(But now I've started learning how)
I leave it open.

Oh thou, who givest sustenance to the universe
From whom all things proceed
To whom all things return
Unveil to us the face of the true spiritual sun
Hidden by a disc of golden light
That we may know the TRUTH
And do our WHOLE duty
As we journey to thy sacret feet

Well I said "Lily,

I feel like life has blown a great big hole
Through me"

The Long And Winding Road [Japanese TV show]



The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I've seen that road before
It always leads me her
Lead me to you door

The wild and windy night
That the rain washed away
Has left a pool of tears
Crying for the day
Why leave me standing here
Let me know the way

Many times I've been alone
And many times I've cried
Any way you'll never know
The many ways I've tried

But still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long long time ago
Don't leave me waiting here
Lead me to your door

But still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long long time ago
Don't leave me waiting here
Lead me to your door
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah



Lord Of The Reedy River [B-side of Sat In Your Lap]



I fell in love with a swan.
My eyes were filled with feathers,
He filled me with song,
In the reedy river,
In the reedy river.

I in my boat long hours,
He in his royal plumage
I threw him some flowers,
In the reedy river,
In the reedy river.

Black was the night and starry.
I loosened off my garments
And let forth my hair,
In the reedy river,
In the reedy river.

Sadly we moaned and sighed,
Whilst in evening twilight
Two swans glide and fly
O'er the reedy river,
("Two swans glide and fly")
O'er the reedy river,
("Two swans glide and fly")
O'er the reedy river.

I fell in love with a swan...
ha-ha
ha-ha



Love And Anger [The Sensual World]



It lay buried here. It lay deep inside me.
It's so deep I don't think that I can speak about it.
It could take me all of my life,
But it would only take a moment to
Tell you what I'm feeling,
But I don't know if I'm ready yet.
You come walking into this room
Like you're walking into my arms.
What would I do without you?

Take away the love and the anger,
And a little piece of hope holding us together.
Looking for a moment that'll never happen,
Living in the gap between past and future.
Take away the stone and the timber,
And a little piece of rope won't hold it together.

If you can't tell your sister,
If you can't tell a priest,
'Cause it's so deep you don't think that you can speak about it
To anyone,
Can you tell it to your heart?
Can you find it in your heart
To let go of these feelings
Like a bell to a Southerly wind?
We could be like two strings beating,
Speaking in sympathy.
What would we do without you?
Two strings speak in sympathy.

(What would we do without you?)

Take away the love and the anger,
And a little piece of hope holding us together.
Looking for a moment that'll never happen,
Living in the gap between past and future.
Take away the stone and the timber,
And a little piece of rope won't hold it together.

We're building a house of the future together.
(What would we do without you?)

Mmmm, yeah, mmmm, yeah, mmmm, yeah,
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.

Well, if it's so deep you don't think that you can speak about it,
Just remember to reach out and touch the past and the future.
Well, if it's so deep you don't think you can speak about it,
Don't ever think that you can't change the past and the future.
(What would we do without you?)
You might not, not think so now,
But just you wait and see, someone will come to help you.

Mmmm, yeah, Mmmm, yeah,
Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm, yeah. Laughs.



Lyra [The Golden Compass]



Where are our lives
If there is no dream
Where is our home?

We don't know how
There will be a way
Out of the storm
We will find home

And her soul walks beside her
An army stands behind her
Lyra, Lyra

And her face full of grace
Two worlds collide around her
The truth lies deep inside her
Lyra, Lyra

And the stars look down upon her
As darkness settles on her
Lyra, Lyra

Who's to know what's in the future
But we hope we will be with her
We have all our love to give her
Oh Lyra, Lyra

And her soul walks beside her
An army stands behind her
Lyra, Lyra

And her face full of grace
Two worlds collide around her
The truth lies deep inside her
Lyra, Lyra



The Man I Love [Tribute to Gershwin]



Someday he'll come along
The man I love
And he'll be big and strong
The man I love
And when he comes my way
I'll do my best to make him stay

He'll look at me and smile
I'll understand
And in a little while
He'll take my hand
And though it seems absurd
I know we both won't say a word

Maybe I shall meet him
Sunday, maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I'm sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day

He'll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I'd never roam
Who would, would you?

And so all else above
I'm waiting for the man I love

Maybe I shall meet him
Sunday, maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I'm sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day

He'll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I'd never roam
Who would, would you?

And so all else above
I'm waiting for the man I love



The Man With The Child In His Eyes [The Kick Inside]



Single: "He's here! He's here! He's here! He's here!"

I hear him, before I go to sleep
And focus on the day that's been.
I realise he's there,
When I turn the light off and turn over.

Nobody knows about my man.
They think he's lost on some horizon.
And suddenly I find myself
Listening to a man I've never known before,

Telling me about the sea,
All his love, 'til eternity.

Ooh, he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh, he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.

He's very understanding,
And he's so aware of all my situations.
And when I stay up late,
He's always waiting, but I feel him hesitate.

Oh, I'm so worried about my love.
They say, "No, no, it won't last forever."
And here I am again, my girl,
Wondering what on Earth I'm doing here.

Maybe he doesn't love me.
I just took a trip on my love for him.

Ooh, he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh, he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.



The Magician of Lublin [Movie Soundtrack]



When you reach for a star
Only angels are there
And it's not very far
Just to step on a stair
Take a look at those clowns
And the tricks that they play
In the circus of life
Life is bitter and gay

There are clowns in the night
Clowns everywhere
See how they run
Run from despair
You can be thrilled
And you can be free
"How?"
But only my friend
If you'll listen to me

When the fantasy bells
Of the universe ring
You can fly through the sky
On a dragonfly's wing
There is magic within
There is magic without
Follow me and you'll learn
Just what life's all about
Just what life's all about



Maybe [Radio]



I'm searching for any revolutionary open
Caused him to a light a nerve.
I'm not on cloud nine on a blue sky
and there a-rocking
because he's a-rocking, too.

So maybe, you may have many words
and many thoughts for yawning
You're so like a star upon me
...



Misty [50 Words For Snow]



Roll his body.
Give him eyes.
Make him smile for me,
Give him life.
My hand is bleeding, I run back inside.
I turn off the light,
Switch on a starry night.
My window flies open.
My bedroom fills with falling snow,
Should be a dream but I'm not sleepy.
I see his snowy white face but I'm not afraid.
He lies down beside me.
So cold next to me.
I can feel him melting in my hand.
Melting, in my hand.
He won't speak to me.
His crooked mouth is full of dead leaves.
Full of dead leaves, bits of twisted branches and frozen garden,
crushed and stolen grasses from slumbering lawn.
He is dissolving, dissolving before me and dawn will come soon.
What kind of spirit is this?
Our one and only tryst.
His breath all misty,
And when I kiss his ice-cream lips
And his creamy skin,
His snowy white arms surround me.
So cold next to me.
I can feel him melting in my hand.
Melting, melting, in my hand.
Sunday morning.
I can't find him.
The sheets are soaking
And on my pillow:
Dead leaves, bits of twisted branches and frozen garden,
crushed and stolen grasses from slumbering lawn.
I can't find him - Misty..
Oh please can you help me?
He must be somewhere.
Open window closing,
Oh but wait, it's still snowing.
If you're out there,
I'm coming out on the ledge.
I'm going out on the ledge.



Mna Na h'Eireann [Common Ground album]



Ta bean in Eirinn a phronnfadh sead damh is mo shaith le n-ol
Is ta bean in Eireann is ba bhinne leithe mo rafla ceoil
No seinm thead; ata bean in Eirinn is niorbh fhearr lei beo
Mise ag leimnigh no leagtha i gcre is mo tharr faoi fhod

Ta bean in Eirinn a bheadh ag ead liom mur bhfaighfinn ach pog
O/ bhean ar aonach, nach ait an sceala, is mo dhaimh fein leo;
Ta bean ab fhearr liom no cath is cead dhiobh nach bhfagham go deo
Is ta cailin speiriuil ag fear gan Bhearla, dubhghranna croin.

Ta bean a dearfadh da siulann leithe go bhfaighinn an t-or,
Is ta bean 'na leine is is fearr a mein no na tainte bo
Le bean a bhuairfeadh Baile an Mhaoir is clar Thir Eoghain,
Is ni fhaicim leigheas ar mo ghalar fein ach scaird a dh'ol.

* Cover translation *

The Women of Ireland

There's a woman in Ireland who'd
Give me a gem and my fill to drink,
There's a woman in Ireland to whom
My singing is sweeter than the music of strings
There's a woman in Ireland who
Would much prefer me leaping
Than laid in the clay and my belly under the sod

There's a woman in Ireland who'd envy me
If I got naught but a kiss
From a woman at a fair, isn't it strange,
And the love I have for them
There's a woman I'd prefer to a battalion,
And a hundred of them whom I will never get
And an ugly, swarthy man with
No English has a beautiful girl

There's a woman who would say
That if I walked with her I'd get the gold
And there's the woman of the shirt
Whose mien is better than herds of cows
With a woman who would deafen baile
An mhaoir and the plain of tyrone
And I see no cure for my disease
But to give up the drink

* Alternate translation *

The Women of Ireland

There's a woman in Eirinn who'd give me shelter and my fill of ale;
There's a woman in Ireland who'd prefer my strains to strings being played;
There's a woman in Eirinn and nothing would please her more
Than to see me burning or in a grave lying cold.

There's a woman in Eirinn who'd be mad with envy if I was kissed
By another on fair-day, they have strange ways, but I love them all;
There are women I'll always adore, battalions of women and more
And there's this sensuous beauty and she shackled to an ugly boar.

There's a woman who promised if I'd wander with her I'd find some gold
A woman in night dress with a loveliness worth more than the woman
Who vexed Ballymoyer and the plain of Tyrone;
And the only cure for my pain I'm sure is the ale-house down the road.



Moments Of Pleasure [Director's Cut]



Some moments that I've had
Some moments of pleasure

I think about us lying
Lying on a beach somewhere
I think about us diving
Diving off a rock, into another moment

The case of George the Wipe
Oh God I can't stop laughing
This sense of humour of mine
It isn't funny at all
But we sit up all night
Talking about it

On a balcony in New York
It's just started to snow
He meets us at the lift
Like Douglas Fairbanks
Waving his walking stick
But he isn't well at all
The buildings of New York
Look just like mountains in the snow

And I can hear my mother saying
"Every old sock meets an old shoe"
"Every old sock"

Hey there Bubba,
Dancing down the aisle of a plane

'S Murph, playing his guitar refrain

Hey there Teddy
Spinning in the chair at Abbey Road

Hey there Michael
Do you really love me?
Did you really love me?



Moments Of Pleasure [The Red Shoes]

Diving off a rock, into another moment

The case of George the Wipe
Oh God I can't stop laughing
This sense of humour of mine
It isn't funny at all
Oh but we sit up all night
Talking about it

Just being alive
It can really hurt
And these moments given
Are a gift from time

On a balcony in New York
It's just started to snow
He meets us at the lift
Like Douglas Fairbanks
Waving his walking stick
But he isn't well at all
The buildings of New York
Look just like mountains through the snow

Just being alive
It can really hurt
And these moments given
Are a gift from time
Just let us try
To give these moments back
To those we love
To those who will survive

And I can hear my mother saying
"Every old sock meets an old shoe"
Isn't that a great saying?
"Every old sock meets an old shoe"
Here come the Hills of Time

Hey there Maureen,

Dancing down the aisle of a plane,

'S Murph, playing his guitar refrain,

Hey there Michael,
Do you really love me?

Hey there Bill,
D'you turn the lights up?



The Morning Fog [Hounds Of Love/The Ninth Wave]



The light
"Dom, dom, de-ah, dum, der"
Begin to bleed,
"Dom, dom, de-ah, dum, der"
Begin to breathe,
"Dom, dom, de-ah, dum, der"
Begin to speak.
"Dom, dom, de-ah, dum, dom, de-om, der"
D'you know what?
I love you better now.
"Do ya?"

I am falling
"Dom, dom, de-ah, dum, der"
Like a stone,
"Dom, dom, de-ah, dum, der"
Like a storm,
"Dom, dom, de-ah, dum, der"
Being born again
"Dom, dom, de-ah, dum, der"
Into the sweet morning fog.
"Dom, dom, de-ah, dum, dom, de-om, der"

D'you know what?
I love you better now.
"De, dom. der"

I'm falling,
And I'd love to hold you know.
"De-ah, dom, dum, der"
"De-ah, dom, dum, der"
I'll kiss the ground.
"Do ya?"
I'll tell my mother,
"Do ya? De-ah, dom, dum, der"
I'll tell my father,
"De-ah, dom, dum, der"
I'll tell my loved one,
"a-e-a-e-a-e-a-eeeo"
I'll tell my brothers,
"a-e-a-e-a-e-a-eeeo"
Hey-oo, Ha-oo, Ha-ooow much I love them.



Mother Stands For Comfort [Hounds Of Love]



[crash of glass]
She knows that I've been doing something wrong,
But she won't say anything.
She thinks that I was with my friends yesterday,
But she won't mind me lying,
[crash of glass, and thuds/gunshots?]
Hmm, 'cause,

Mother stands for comfort.
Mother will hide the murderer.

It breaks the cage, and fear escapes and takes possession,
Just like a crowd rioting inside.
(Make me do this, make me do that, make me do this)
Make me do that.
Am I the cat that takes the bird?
To her the hunted, not the hunter.
Ah-oo, ah-oo ah.
Ah-oo, ah-oo ah.

Mother stands for comfort.
Mother will hide the murderer.
Mother,
Ah-oo, ah-oo ah.
Hides the madman.
Mother will stay mum.

Mother stands for comfort.
Mother,
Wahh!
Will stay mum.
She stands for comfort.



Moving [The Kick Inside]



Moving stranger,
Does it really matter,
As long as you're not afraid to feel?
Touch me, hold me.
How my open arms ache!
Try to fall for me.

How I'm moved.
How you move me
With your beauty's potency.
You give me life.
Please don't let me go.
You crush the lily in my soul.

Moving liquid
Yes, you are just as water.
You flow around all that comes in your way.
Don't think it over,
It always takes you over,
And sets your spirit dancing.

How I'm moved.
How you move me
With your beauty's potency.
You give me life.

Please don't let me go.

Mrs Bartolozzi [Aerial]



I remember it was that Wednesday
Oh when it rained and it rained
They traipsed mud all over the house
It took hours and hours to scrub it out
All over the hall carpet
I took my mop and my bucket
And I cleaned and I cleaned
The kitchen floor
Until it sparkled
Then I took my laundry basket
And put all the linen in it
And everything I could fit in it
All our dirty clothes that hadn't gone into the wash
And all your shirts and jeans and things
And put them in the new washing machine
Washing machine
Washing machine

I watched them going 'round and 'round
My blouse wrapping itself around your trousers
Oh the waves are going out
My skirt floating up around my waist
As I wade out into the surf
Oh and the waves are coming in
Oh and the waves are going out
Oh and you're standing right behind me
Little fish swim between my legs
Oh and the waves are coming in
Oh and the waves are going out
Oh and the waves are coming in
Out of the corner of my eye
I think I see you standing outside
But it's just your shirt
Hanging on the washing line
Waving it's arm as the wind blows by
And it looks so alive
Nice and white
Just like it's climbed right out of my washing machine
Washing machine
Washing machine

Slooshy sloshy slooshy sloshy
Get that dirty shirty clean
Slooshy sloshy slooshy sloshy
Make those cuffs and collars gleam
Everything clean and shiny

Washing machine
Washing machine
Washing machine



My Lagan Love [B-side of Cloudbusting 12"]



When rainy nights are soft with tears,
And Autumn leaves are falling,
I hear his voice on tumbling waves
And no one there to hold me.

At evening's fall he watched me walk.
His heart was mine.
But my love was young, and felt
The world was not cruel, but kind.

Where Lagan's light fell on the hour,
I saw him far below me
Just as the morning calmed the storm
With no one there to hold him.

My loves have come, my loves have gone,
And nothing's left to warn me,
Save for a voice on the travelling wind,
And the glimpse of a face at morning.



Ne T'enfuis Pas {Don't Fly Away} [B-side of There Goes A Tenner]



Je viens {I am coming}
Comme un chat {Like a cat}
Par la nuit si noire. {Through the night so black.}
Tu attends, {You are waiting,}
Et je tombe {And I fall}
Dans tes ailles blanches, la-la-la.. {Into your white wings, la-la-la..}
Et je vole, {And I fly,}
Et je coule {And I sink}
Comme une plume. {Like a feather.}

Si les grands yeux de mon Dieu {If the great eyes of my God}
Ne me gardaient pas, {Were not watching (over) me,}
Je te volerais {I would steal you away.}

Ne t'enfuis pas! {Don't fly away!}
Tu as des ailes, {You have wings,}
Le pouvoir de me quitter. {The power to leave me.}
Tu es tombé {You fell}
Du ciel comme un ange, la-la-la {From the sky like an angel, la-la-la}
Et j'ai peur {And I'm afraid}
Que le ciel {That the sky}
Te reprenne. {Will take you back.}

Si les grands yeux de mon Dieu {If the great eyes of my God}
Ne me gardaient pas, {Weren't watching (over) me,}
Je te volerais. {I would steal you away.}

Je viens {I am coming}

Je t'en prie, {I beg you,}
Je t'en prie, {I beg you,}
Je t'en prie, {I beg you,}

Pas! {Away!}



Need Your Loving [Demo]



Passing through air.
You mix the stars with your arms.
Walking through there.
The doom of eternity balms.
Skies of grey,
Are not today.

Oh! If you throw my love away,
I need your loving, I need your loving, I ...
Oh! If you pour down rain today,
I need your love,
So much, so much!

Laughing through smiles.
You lick my love with the years.
Walking for miles.
You cool my brow with your tears.
Skies of grey,
Are not today.

Oh! If you throw my love away,
I need your loving, I need your loving, I ...
Oh! If you pour down rain today,
I need your love, need your care
So much, so much, so much!

Are not today.

Oh! If you throw my love away,
I need your loving, I need your loving, I ...
Oh! If you pour down rain today,
I need your love, need your care
So much, so much, so much!



Never Be Mine [Director's Cut]



I look at you and see
My life that might have been
Your face just ghostly in the smoke
They're setting fire to the cornfields
As you're taking me home

The smell of burning fields
Will now mean you and here

This is what I want
This is where I want to be
This is what I need
This is where I need to be
This is what I want
But I know that it will never be mine

The thrill and the hurting
The thrill and the hurting

I want you as the dream
Not the reality
That clumsy goodbye kiss could fool me
But looking back over my shoulder
You're happy without me

This is what I want
This is where I need to be
This is what I want
This is where I want to be
This is what I need
But I know know it will never be mine

The thrill and the hurting
The thrill and the hurting
Will never be mine

This is what I need
This is what I want

Nevertheless, You'll Do [Demo]



You've never driven through a red light,
Or let your mind leave your body.
It's pitch black in bed every night:
You set the clock right for the morning alarm.

You've never wanted to start any fires,
Don't know a thing about tapping in on wires.

I fill the room with people
but still you sit empty,
Stuck like putty.
I tried to teach you good rock'n'roll,
But you couldn't get over the old one-two,
And nevertheless, you'll do.
Nevertheless, you'll do.
Nevertheless, I do.

You get up in the morning and put on your suit
For the office, and leave me.
You come home all pushed and pulled,
At six-thirty in the evening.

The television, it takes you away
To a picture-world where I have no say in it.

I fill the room with people
but still you sit empty,
Stuck like putty.
I tried to teach you good rock'n'roll,
But you couldn't get over the old one-two,
And nevertheless, you'll do.
Nevertheless, you'll do.
Nevertheless, I do.



Night Of The Swallow [The Dreaming]



The night doesn't like it.
Looks just like your face on the moon, to me.
And I won't let you do
What you want to do.

It's funny how, even now,
You're laughing.
I won't let you do it.

If you go, I'll let the law know,
And they'll head you off when you touch the ground.
Ooh, please, don't go through with this.
I don't like the sound of it.

It's funny how, even now,
You're miles away.

I won't let you do it.
I won't let you do it.
I won't let you go through with it.

"Meet them over at Dover.
I'll just pilot the motor,
Take them over the water

"With a hired plane,
And no names mentioned.
Tonight's the night of the flight.
Before you know,
I'll be over the water
Like a swallow.

"There's no risk.
I'll whisk them up in no moonlight.
And though pigs can fly,
They'll never find me
Posing as the night,
And I'm home before the morning."

In Malta, catch a swallow,
For all of the guilty, to let them free.
Wings fill the window,
And they beat and bleed.

They hold the sky on the other side
Of borderlines.

I won't let you do it.
I won't let you do it.
I won't let you go through with it.

"Meet them over at Dover.
I'll just pilot the motor,
Take them over the water,
Like a swallow flying to Malta,

"With a hired plane,

Like a swallow.

"There's no risk.
I'll whisk them up in no moonlight.
And though pigs can fly,
They'll never find me
Posing as the night,
And I'm home before the morning.

"Give me a break!
Ooh, let me try!
Give me something to show
For my miserable life!
Give me something to take!
Would you break even my wings,
Like a swallow?

"Let me, let me go
With a hired plane,
And no names mentioned.
Tonight's the night of the flight.
Before you know,
I'll be over the water
Like a swallow.

"There's no risk.
I'll whisk them up in no moonlight.

Before you know,
I'll be over the water
Like a swallow.

"Let me, let me go!
"There's no risk.
I'll whisk them up in no moonlight.
And though pigs can fly,
They'll never find me
Posing as the night,
And I'm home before the morning"

"Let me, let me go!"

But you're not a swallow!

No Self Control [Peter Gabriel's album "3" (backing vocals)]



Got to get some food
I'm so hungry all the time
I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop

Got to get some sleep
I'm so nervous in the night
I don't know how to stop
No, I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop

Got to pick up the phone
I will call any number
I will talk to anyone
I know I'm gone too far
Much too far I gone this time
And I don't want to think what I've done
I don't know how to stop
No, I don't know how to stop

There are always hidden silences
Waiting behind the chair
They come out when the coast is clear
They eat anything that moves
I go shaky at the knees
Lights go out, stars come down
Like a swarm of bees

No self-control

You know I hate to hurt you
I hate to see your pain
But I don't know how to stop
No, I don't know how to stop

Street after street
Night after night
I walk on through the rain
I walk on through the rain
I don't know how to stop



Nocturn [Aerial]



"Sweet Dreams..."

On this Midsummer night
Every one is sleeping
We go driving into the moonlight

Could be in a dream
Our clothes are on the beach
The prints of our feet
Lead right up to the sea

No one, no one is here
No one, no one is here
We stand at the Atlantic
And we become panoramic

We tire of the city
We tire of it all
We long for just that something more

Could be in a dream
Our clothes are on the beach
The prints of our feet
Lead right up to the sea

No one, no one is here
No one, no one is here
We stand in the Atlantic
And we become panoramic

The stars are caught in our hair
The stars are on our fingers
A veil of diamond dust
Just reach up and touch it

The skies above our heads
The seas around our legs
The milky silky water
We swim further and further

We dive down
We dive down

A diamond night
A diamond sea
And a diamond sky

We dive deeper and deeper
We dive deeper and deeper
Could be we are here
Could be in my dream

Oh, it came up
On the horizon
Rising and rising

A sea of honey
A sky of honey
A sea of honey
A sky of honey

Look at the light and all the time it's a-changing
Look at the light, climbing up the aerial
Bright white
Coming alive
Jumping off of the aerial
All the time it's a-changing, like now
All the time it's a-changing, like then again
All the time it's a-changing
And all the dreamers awaking



Not This Time [B-side of The Big Sky]



Oh, with a mind that renders everything sensitive,
What chance do I have here?
Put an end, put an end,
Put an end to every dream.
When you're near, I fear you,
And I forget myself.

But not this time, baby.
Not this time.
Not this time, baby,
"Not this time."

I don't know why I give in, but I do every time.
And here I am wondering why I did it again.
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-ay,
That's what I say
To keep me going,
To keep the shit away.

I don't know what it is,
Every time you're near, I fear you,
And I forget myself.

No, not this time, baby.
Not this time, you won't.
Not this time.
Not this time, darling.

C'mon, we all sing:
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Oh haaaa
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Not this time, baby
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Yeah yeah haaa
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Not this time, you won't
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Not this time, baby
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Noooo.
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Ho ho ha
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Not this time, baby
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Yeah haaa
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha
Too-ree-ay, too-ree-o, too-ree-o-ha



Oh England, My Lionheart [Lionheart]



Oh! England, my Lionheart,
I'm in your garden, fading fast in your arms.
The soldiers soften, the war is over.
The air raid shelters are blooming clover.
Flapping umbrellas fill the lanes
My London Bridge in rain again.

Oh! England, my Lionheart!
Peter Pan steals the kids in Kensington Park.
You read me Shakespeare on the rolling Thames
That old river poet that never, ever ends.
Our thumping hearts hold the ravens in,
Keep the tower from tumbling.

Oh! England, my Lionheart,
Oh! England, my Lionheart,
Oh! England, my Lionheart,
I don't want to go.

Oh! England, my Lionheart!
Dropped from my black Spitfire to my funeral barge.
Give me one kiss in apple-blossom.
Give me one wish, and I'd be wassailing
In the orchard, my English rose,
Or with my shepherd, who'll bring me home.

Oh! England, my Lionheart,
Oh! England, my Lionheart,
Oh! England, my Lionheart,
Oh! England, my Lionheart,
Oh! England, my Lionheart,
I don't want to go.



Oh To Be In Love [The Kick Inside]



As the light hits you,
As you shift along the floor,
I find it hard to place my face.
How did I come to be here, anyway?
It's terribly vague, what's gone before.

I could have been anyone.
You could have been anyone's dream.
(dreamer)
Why did you have to choose our moment?
Why did you have to make me feel that?
Why did you make it so unreal?

Oh! To be in love,
And never get out again.
Oh! To be in love,
And never get out again.
Oh! To be in love,
Never get out again.

Oh! To be in love,
And never get out again.
Oh! To be in love,
And never get out again.
Oh! To be in love,
Never get out again.

All the colours look brighter now.
Everything they say seems to sound new.
Slipping into tomorrow too quick,
Yesterday always too good to forget.
Stop the swing of the pendulum. Let us through!

Oh! To be in love,
And never get out again.
Oh! To be in love,
And never get out again.
Oh! To be in love,
Never get out again.

On Fire Inside A Snowball [Demo]



Whenever I look out French windows
It's always snowing outside.
And feel your body relax on mine,
Giving me all the good lines,
(Uh-huh)
All the good lines,
All the good li... ooh.

Hot in the ice,
On fire inside,
A snowball.
Ah, but she's wonderful,
Set in the snow.
Ah, but she's wonderful,
Set in the snow.

Hot in the ice,
On fire inside,
A snowball.
Ah, but she's wonderful,
Set in the snow.
Ah, but she's wonderful,
Set in the snow.

A crystal layer of ice on our skin:
Very numb outside but warm within.
I bend to join our lips, but it's too cold
To kiss and hit. Is that you I'm feeling?
Is it you I'm feeling?
(Yeah!)
Is it you I'm feeling?

Hot in the ice,
On fire inside,
A snowball.
Ah, but she's wonderful,
Set in the snow.
Ah, but she's wonderful,
Set in the snow.

Hot in the ice,
On fire inside,
A snowball.
Ah, but she's wonderful,
Set in the snow.
Ah, but she's wonderful,
Set in the snow.



Once [Roy Harper's album "Once" (backing vocals)]



Earth for all creatures
A thought for all (wo)men
Right for the speechless
Wrong until then?

Eyes for the laughter
Thirst for the tongue
Hands for together
Ears for the song

The song of love
We sing in silence
Every moment long

Once
Here to be done as we do
With only one chance
Here for the wonder of under the stars
For the one and only
Once

Joy for the children
Hope for the chance
Men for the women
Now for the dance

The dance of love
We dance just once
In unique circumstance

Once
Here to be done as we do
With only one chance
Here for the wonder of under the stars
For the one and only once



One Last Look Around The House Before We Go [GLC movie]



(Instrumental)



Organic Acid [Demo]



He got her drunk very quickly
Holding hands, they found the broom-cupboard
Where he had control as far as the fall
When his hand covered wet hair
She took over among furniture wax
Dust, and the cloying yellow of polishing-cloth
When he was sick, she comforted him

Oh hush, my friend, and sleep
And cuddle to the wind
Sleep on through the waves
That may wet your lover's dream

We have been far through this night long hours
We will go far, tomorrow, out of sight, ooh...

He couldn't do it properly
The disco, the office, the pub,
Had left out those details of delight.
Satisfied, he would collapse out,
Puzzled at why she still squirmed,
Held onto him, tears curling into her mouth
This was something their stories always omitted
That her joy would seem like pain
When he focused after his release.

Do sand and shells and stones
Peep in through your night?
But you should not be hurt
For all will pass with time.

We have been far through this night long hours
We will go far, tomorrow, out of sight, ooh...

In the third week of the relationship
She was tripping on organic acid
Would stop to pick up a rained-out leaf
Would give it tenderly into his hand
Full of dead things before they reached the car

When they drove she sat with mouth open
As though photographed on the impact of a stomach punch
Her right fist gripping the skin of his left leg

Hooking the steering-wheel closer to his heart
He feared her, and slapped out sideways into her face
She entered the cut with her tongue
Gurgling gratitude for the strange taste

Do you fear the dark?
Then hush, and realise
That though the angels never come
Prayers can soothe your mind

We have been far through this night long hour
We will go far, tomorrow, out of sight, ooh...

There was no premonition of the wet Hog's Back
The sportscar slumped, snout into a beech
Their corpses giving the vehicle arms
Petrol and blood at last dripping together
But quick flashes of a planned lunch
Cold red beef, white cloth by a cherrywood fire
Game pie, and for him two pints of colder beer
The winter air tucking under their eyelids
As they spun on the gravel at Clandon
Their hands steaming from quick moisture
The aromatic finger drawn up to his nostril
Dazed after mutual masturbation
They zigzagged into a conservative end

Oh hush, my friend, asleep.



Out Of The Storm [The Dinosaur]



Ohh....

Where are our lives
If there is no dream
Where is our home?
If we can't find home
There will be a way
Out of the storm
We must go on

Ohh....



The Painter's Link [Aerial]



The painter:
It's raining
What has become of my painting
All the colours are running

The chorus:
So all the colours run
So all the colours run
See what they have become
A wonderful sunset



Passing Through Air [B-side of Army Dreamers]



Passing through air.
You mix the stars with your arms.
Walking through there.
The doom of eternity balms.
Skies of grey are not today.

Oh! Don't you throw my love away,
I need your loving, I need your loving, I ...
Oh! Don't you pour down rain today,
I need your love, I need your care
So much, so much, so much!

Laughing through smiles.
You lick my love with the years.
Walking for miles.
You cool my brow with your tears.
Skies of grey are not today.

Oh! Don't you throw my love away,
I need your loving, I need your loving, I ...
Oh! Don't you pour down rain today,
I need your love, I need your care
So much, so much, so much!

Oh! Don't you throw my love away,
I need your loving, I need your loving, I ...
Oh! Don't you pour down rain today,
I need your loving, I need your loving.
Oh! Don't you throw my love away,
I need your loving, I need your loving.

With an obsessive nature and deep fascination

In a great big circle

Prelude [Aerial]



Mummy...
Daddy...
The day is full of birds
Sounds like they're saying words



Prologue [Aerial]



We're gonna be laughing about this
We're gonna be dancing around
It's gonna be so good now
It's gonna be so good

Oh so exciting, mmh go on and on
Every time you leave us
So Summer will be gone
So you'll never grow old to us

It's gonna be so good now
It's gonna be so good
Can you see the lark ascending?

Oh so romantic, swept me off my feet
Like some kind of magic
Like the light in Italy
Lost its way across the sea..

Roma Roma mia
Tesoro mio, bella
Pieno di sole luce
Bali cozi bene, bene
Pianissimo
Pianissimo

The chorus:
What a lovely afternoon
What a lovely afternoon
Oh will you come with us
To find the song of the oil and the brush?



Pull Out The Pin [The Dreaming]



Just as we hit the green,
I've never been so happy to be alive.
Only seven miles behind
You could smell the child,
The smell of the front line's survival.

With my silver Buddha
And my silver bullet,

You learn to ride the Earth,
When you're living on your belly and the enemy are city-births.
Who need radar? We use scent.
They stink of the west, stink of sweat.
Stink of cologne and baccy, and their Yankee hash.

With my silver Buddha
And my silver bullet,
(I'm pulling on the pin,)
Ooh, I pull out, pull out the pin.
(pulling on the pin, oh...)

Just one thing in it:
Me or him.
And I love life!
(pull out the pin)
Just one thing in it:
Me or him.
And I love life!
(pull out the pin)
Just one thing in it:
Me or him.
And I love life!
I love life!
I love life!
(pull out the pin)

I've seen the coat for me.
I'll track him 'til he drops,
Then I'll pop him one he won't see.
He's big and pink, and not like me.
He sees no light.
He sees no reason for the fighting

With my silver Buddha
And my silver bullet.

I had not seen his face,
'til I'm only feet away
Unbeknown to my prey.
I look in American eyes.
I see little life,
See little wife.
He's striking violence up in me.

With my silver Buddha
And my silver bullet,
(I'm pulling on the pin,)
Ooh, I pull out, pull out the pin.
(pulling on the pin, oh...)

Just one thing in it:
Me or him.
And I love life!
(pull out the pin)
Just one thing in it:
Me or him.
And I love life!
(pull out the pin)
Just one thing in it:
Me or him.
And I love life!
I love life!
I love life!
(pull out the pin)

Just one thing in it:
Me or him.
And I love life!
(So I pull out the pin)
Just one thing in it:
Me or him.
And I love life!
(So I pull out the pin)
Just one thing in it:
Me or him.
And I love life!
I love life!
I love life!
I love life!
I love life!
I love life!
I love life!
I love life!
I love life!
(pull out the pin)



Ran Tan Waltz [B-side of Babooshka]



Where is she
When the little thing cries?
She lies in a bed
With a friend of mine.
But some nights
She'll run back in fright
If she picks on a dick
That's too big for her pride.

Oh! Oh!
Why did I ever go marry her?
I was a child!
I'm holding the baby,
She's ran-tanning constantly.
She saw me coming for miles.
She saw me open wide.

Four o'clock
And the key's in the lock.
And she's been on the win.
And she's stinking of drink.
Wakes the kid,
So I put him to sleep,
And she's in there all night,
Doubled over the sink.

Oh! Oh!
Why did I ever go marry her?
I was a child!
I'm holding the baby,
She's ran-tanning constantly.
She saw me coming for miles.
She saw me open wide.
She saw me coming for miles.

Open wide.
Open wide.
Open wide.
mmm
Open wide.
oh oh
Open wide.
ooh ooh
Open wide.
Open wide.
Open wide.
oooh
Open wide.
Open wide.



The Rare Flower [Demo]



There's beauty in such a sacred structure, oh,
That thing that is nurtured and loved.
It's quite an occasion.
It's driving me crazy.

I'm not allowed to touch on lust.
I've gotta get a hold of myself.
I mustn't admit it.

I don't see why I shouldn't,
I don't see why I shouldn't,
I don't see why I shouldn't
Pick the rare flower.

I don't see why I shouldn't,
Well I don't see why I shouldn't,
I don't see why I shouldn't
Pick the rare flower.
Whoooo

Walking in a Paradise or Eden,
Whoa, temptation:
Give me one second to succumb.

It's calling me.
With a menacing whisper of,
Magic offer a-charming me./Magical world enchanting me.
Why I've gotta get a hold of myself,
You see, but it ain't easy.

I don't see why I shouldn't,
I don't see why I shouldn't,
I don't see why I shouldn't
Pick the rare flower.

I don't see why I shouldn't,
I don't see why I shouldn't,
I don't see why I shouldn't
Pick the rare flower.
Whoooo

Reaching Out [The Sensual World]



See how the child reaches out instinctively
To feel how fire will feel.

See how the man reaches out instinctively
For what he cannot have.
Yeah, yoy, yeah, yoy, yeah, yoy, yeah.

The pull and the push of it all.

Reaching out for the hand.
Reaching out for the hand that smacked.
Reaching out for that hand to hold.
Reaching out for the Star.
Reaching out for the Star that explodes.
Reaching out for Mama.

See how the flower leans instinctively toward the light
See how the heart reaches out instinctively
For no reason but to touch.
Yeah, yoy, yeah, yoy, yeah, yoy, yeah.

The pull and the push of it all.

Reaching out for the hand
Reaching out for the hand that smacked
Reaching out for that hand to hold.
Reaching out for the Star.
Reaching out for the Star that explodes.
Reaching out for Mama.

Can't we see.

Reaching out for Mama.

Rinfy The Gypsy [Demo]



I fell in love with Rinfy the gypsy.
He said when I grew up he'd marry me,
Carry me away on his steed.

"Don't worry, my baby!
Don't die, my funny little darling!
I'm going away for a little while,
And shouldn't be gone for very long."

Ooh, then I really fell for Geoffrey, our gardener.
He said he'd marry me, too.
Oh, and I believed him, just like a fool.

"Don't worry, my honey!
Don't die, my funny little doll!
I'm going away for a little while.
Shouldn't be gone for very long."
(Ooh, long, long, long ...)

Playing canasta in c-cold rooms,
Playing canasta in cold rooms,
Playing canasta upstairs, downstairs,
And in my lover's...ooh...

I met a boy who took me upstairs,
Then took me in his arms
and told me I comforted him, uh-huh.

"Don't worry, my dear,
Don't cry, you weird little stranger.
I'm going away.
You probably won't ever see me again."

Oh, yes, I know, I'm always falling,
Gazing at hazy goldfish in your swimming eyes.
How could I not lie there with you?

"Don't worry, my darling!
Don't die, my silly little baby!
I'm going away for a little while,
And shouldn't be gone for very long."
(Ooh, long, long, long!)

Playing canasta in c-cold rooms,
Playing canasta in cold rooms,
Playing canasta upstairs, downstairs,
And in my lover's...ooh...



Rocket Man [Tribute to Elton John]



She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Zero hour nine a.m.
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
It's lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I'm a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone

Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact it's cold as hell
And there's no one there to raise them if you did
And all this science I don't understand
It's just my job five days a week
A rocket man, a rocket man

And I think it's gonna be a long long time...



Rocket's Tail [The Sensual World]



That November night, looking up into the sky,
You said,

"Hey, wish that was me up there
It's the biggest rocket I could find,
And it's holding the night in its arms
If only for a moment.
I can't see the look in its eyes,
But I'm sure it must be laughing."

But it seemed to me the saddest thing I'd ever seen,
And I, I thought you were crazy, wishing such a thing.

I saw only a stick on fire,
Alone on its journey
Home to the quickening ground,
With no one there to catch it.

I put on my pointed hat
And my black and silver suit,
And I check my gunpowder pack
And I strap the stick on my back.
And, dressed as a rocket on Waterloo Bridge
Nobody seems to see me.
Then, with the fuse in my hand,
And now shooting into the night

And still as a rocket,
I land in the river.
Was it me said you were crazy?

I put on my cloudiest suit,
(he he he he he he)
(Big red flippers)
(he he he he he he)
Size 5 lightning boots, too.
(he he he he he he)
(Big red flippers)
'Cause I am a rocket
(he he he he)
(Big red flippers)
On fire.
(Big red flippers)
Look at me go, with my tail on fire,
(he he he he)
(Big red flippers)
With my tail on fire,
(heeeee)
(Big red flippers)
On fire.
(heeeee)
(Big red flippers)
Hey, look at me go, look at me...
(heeeeeeeeee)



Room For The Life [The Kick Inside]



Hey there, you lady in tears,
Do you think that they care if they're real, woman?
They just take it as part of the deal.
Lost in your men and the games you play.
Trying to prove that you're better, woman.
But you needn't get heavy with them.
Like it or not, we were built tough,
'Cause we're woman.

No, we never die for long,
While we've got that little life
To live for, where it's hid inside.
No, we never die for long,
Oh! Woman, two in one,

There's room for a life in your womb, woman,
Inside of you can be two, woman,
There's room for a life in your womb, woman,
Mama woman, aha!

Night after night in the quiet house,
Plaiting her hair by the fire, woman,
With no lover to free her desire,
How long do you think she can stick it out?
How long do you think before she'll go out, woman?
Hey! Get up on your feet and go get it, now.
Like it or not, we keep bouncing back,
Because we're woman.

No, we never die for long,
While we've got that little life
To live for, where it's hid inside.
No, we never die for long,
Oh! Woman, two in one,

There's room for a life in your womb, woman,
Inside of you can be two, woman,
There's room for a life in your womb, woman,
Mama woman, aha!

(A-mama-woma-mama-woman-aha! repeated)
Mama woman, aha!
Oh, mama-woman, two-in-a-one, aha!
Oh, woman, woman, two-a, two-a, two-a, two-a
Oh, two in one, aha!
Oh, woman! Woman! Woman! Woman!
There's room for a life in your womb!
There's room for a life in your womb!
There's room for a life in your womb!
There's room for a life in your womb!

Sat In Your Lap [The Dreaming]



I see the people working,
And see it working for them.
And so I want to join in,
But then I find it hurts me.

Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap.
Some say that knowledge is something that you never have.

I see the people happy,
So can it happen for me?
'Cause when I am unhappy,
There's nothing that can move me.

Some say that knowledge is something that you never have.
Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap.
Some say that heaven is hell.
Some say that hell is heaven.

I must admit, just when I think I'm king,
(I just begin.)
Just when I think I'm king, I must admit,
(I just begin.)
Just when I think I'm king,
(I just begin.)

I've been doing it for years.
My goal is moving near.
It says, "Look! I'm over here."
Then it up and disappears.

Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap.
Some say that knowledge is ho-ho-ho-ho.

I want to be a lawyer.
I want to be a scholar.
But I really can't be bothered.
Ooh, just gimme it quick, gimme it, gimme gimme gimme gimme!

Some say that knowledge is ho ho ho.
Some say that knowledge is ho ho ho.
Some say that heaven is hell.
Some say that hell is heaven.

I must admit, just when I think I'm king,
(I just begin.)
Just when I think I'm king, I must admit,
(I just begin.)
Just when I think everything's going great,
(I just begin,)
I get the break,
Hey, I'm gonna take it all
(I just begin.)
When I'm king
(just begin.)

In my dome of ivory,
A home of activity,
I want the answers quickly,
But I don't have no energy.

I hold a cup of wisdom,
But there is nothing within.
My cup, she never overfloweth,
And 'tis I that moan and groaneth.

Some grey and white matter,
"Give me the karma, mama!"
I'm coming up the ladder,
Here coming up the ladder,
"A jet to Mecca,"
Up the ladder,
"Tibet or Jeddah,
To Salisbury,
A monastery,
The longest journey,
Across the desert,
Across the weather,
Across the elements,
Across the water!"



Sat In Your Lap [Demo]



I see in the morning
I get the paper for me
But I don't have no energy
To get quick by the paper

Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap.
Some say that knowledge is something that you never have.

I see the people working,
And see it working for them.
And so I want to join in,
But then I find it hurt me.

Some say that knowledge is something that you never have.
Some say that knowledge is that sat in your lap.
Some say that heaven is hell.
Some say that heaven is hell.

I must admit, just as I'm king,
(I just begin.)
Just as I'm king, I must admit,
(I just begin.)
Just when I ...



Saxophone Song [The Kick Inside]



You'll find me in a Berlin bar,
In a corner brooding.
You know that I go very quiet
When I'm listening to you.
There's something special indeed,
There's something special indeed,

In all the places where I've seen you shine, boy.
There's something very real in how I feel, honey.

It's in me.
It's in me,
And you know it's for real.
Tuning in on your saxophone.

Dabba-dabba-doo

The candle burning over your shoulder is throwing
Shadows from your saxophone, a surly lady in tremor.
The stars that climb from her bowels,
Those stars make towers on vowels.

You'll never know that you had all of me.
You'll never see the poetry you've stirred in me.
Of all the stars I've seen that shine so brightly,
I've never known or felt in myself so rightly,

It's in me.
It's in me,
And you know it's for real.
Tuning in on your saxophone.

Dabba-dabba-doo



Scares Me Silly [Demo]



Here in the studio,
As they're turning down the lights,
I lick my lips to start the first line -
How can this girl be me?
"Oh, little thing, are you looking lost?"
The vertigo, the need to lose."

Ooh, ooh...
They try to put me on the tapes begin to spin,
I feel a little sick and hope my notes are in,
I try to put it all in, do it for you,
Don't even know you but I need you to love me, too.
They try to put me on the tape begin to spin,
I feel a little sick and hope my notes are in,
I try to put it all in, do it for you,
Don't even know you but I need you to love me, too.

Scares me silly, but it gets me going,
Like a Romeo.
Scares me silly, but it gets me going,
Like a Romeo.
Scares me silly, but it gets me going.

Swimming amid the cans
I wonder can I goad myself into another take,
And keep the mood?
It's like a film - such balance.
I close my eyes to the cello solo and ache,
The music will never let me blow away you-oo.

You know the feeling when you're on the right track.
You fall in love and you're never gonna turn it back.
It's a part of you, they're so sensitive,
Oozing without me, filling over with secrets.
You know the feeling when you're on the right track.
You fall in love and you're never gonna turn it back.
It's a part of you, they're so sensitive,
Oozing without me, filling over with secrets.

Scares me silly, but it gets me going,
Like a Romeo.
Scares me silly, but it gets me going,
Like a Romeo.
Scares me silly, but it gets me going.



The Seer [Big Country's album "The Seer" (backing vocals)]



Long ago I beard a tale
I never wilt forget
The time was in the telling
On the bank the scene was set

The sky was rolling blindly on
The daylight had not gone
She washed her hair among the stones
And saw what was to come

All this will pass
There will be blood among the corn
And heroes in the hills
But there is more to come my boy
Before you've had your fill

Men will come and rope the sail
As though it were their own
And they will bathe their feet in oil
As I have bathed my own

All this will pass
All things must come
Just as I tell you here

Stones will stand together
As if searching for the stars
And all come crashing down again
Before they reach too far

She turned to face the setting sun
I turned to walk away
But then she called my name again
And beckoned me to stay

All this will pass
All things must come
Just as I tell you here

She told me of the famous sons
Who write their names in peace
Yet be cut down before the time
Has come for our release

Just as I tell you here

Even now
I wait for the coming day
Even now
She waits in the dawn

For the tales she tells
For the gifts that she will sell
For the sight she knows
For a vision that still grows
With the dream in her eyes no one's seen

I listened for so long that day
That I can hardly tell
If what she said was heaven sent
Or brought to bear in hell

That men of hope would stand alone
And still be cast a lie
Just as Romans cast them
On the day they were to die

All this will pass

There is more of what she told
Much better left alone
For who are we to question her
Who stands among the stones



The Sensual World [The Sensual World]



Mmh, yes,
Then I'd taken the kiss of seedcake back from his mouth
Going deep South, go down, mmh, yes,
Took six big wheels and rolled our bodies
Off of Howth Head and into the flesh, mmh, yes,

He said I was a flower of the mountain, yes,
But now I've powers o'er a woman's body, yes.

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world.
Stepping out.

To where the water and the earth caress
And the down of a peach says mmh, yes,
Do I look for those millionaires
Like a Machiavellian girl would
When I could wear a sunset? mmh, yes,

And how we'd wished to live in the sensual world
You don't need words, just one kiss, then another.

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world
Stepping out, off the page, into the sensual world.

And then our arrows of desire rewrite the speech, mmh, yes,
And then he whispered would I, mmh, yes,
Be safe, mmh, yes, from mountain flowers?
And at first with the charm around him, mmh, yes,

He loosened it so if it slipped between my breasts
He'd rescue it, mmh, yes,

And his spark took life in my hand and, mmh, yes,
I said, mmh, yes,
But not yet, mmh, yes,
Yes.
Mmh, yes,
Yes.



She's Leaving Home [Japanese TV show]



Wednesday morning at five o'clock
As the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the back door key
Stepping outside she is free

She (we gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving (sacrificed most of our lives)
Home (we gave her everything money could buy)
She's leaving home after living alone for
So many years (bye bye)

Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown
Picks up the letter that's lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down and cries to her husband
Daddy our baby's gone
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
How could she do this to me

She (We never thought of ourselves)
Is leaving (never a thought for ourselves)
Home (we struggled hard all our lives to get by)
She's leaving home after living alone for
So many years (bye bye)

Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor trade

She (what did we do that was wrong)
Is having (we didn't know it was wrong)
Fun (fun is the one thing that money can't buy)
Something inside that was always denied for
So many years (bye bye)
She's leaving home (bye bye)

Snowed In At Wheeler Street [50 Words For Snow]



Excuse me, I'm sorry to bother you but don't I know you?
There's just something about you. Haven't we met before?
We've been in love forever.
When we got to the top of the hill we saw Rome burning.
I just let you walk away. I've never forgiven myself.
I saw you on the steps in Paris, you were with someone else.
Couldn't you see that should've been me? I just walked on by.
Then we met in '42 but we were on different sides.
I hid you under my bed but they took you away.
I lost you in a London smog as you crossed the lane.
I never know where you're gonna be next but I know that you'll surprise me.
Come with me, I'll find some rope and I'll tie us together.
I've been waiting for you so long, I don't want to lose you again.
Don't walk into the crowd again. Don't walk away again.
I don't want to lose you.
I don't want to lose you.
I don't want to lose you again.
There's just something about you.
Have we been in love forever?
9.11 in New York, I took your photograph.
I still have your smiling face... In a heart-shaped frame.
Snowed in at Wheeler street, just two old flames keeping the fire going.
We look so good together.
Can't we just stay there forever? We were so happy.
I'd live that day over and over but the world won't stop turning.
When we got to the top of the hill we saw Rome burning.
I don't want to lose you, I don't want to lose you again.
Don't walk away again. Don't leave me lost again.
I don't want to lose you.
I don't want to lose you.
I don't want to lose you again.
I don't want to lose you.
I don't want to lose you.
I don't want to lose you again.
Oh no, not again!
Not again!



Snowflake [50 Words For Snow]



I was born in a cloud...
Now I am falling.
I want you to catch me.
Look up and you'll see me.
You know you can hear me.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
We're over a forest.
There's millions of snowflakes.
We're dancing.
The world is so loud. Keep falling and I'll find you.
I am ice and dust. I am sky.
I can see horses wading through snowdrifts.
My broken hearts, my fabulous dances.
My fleeting song, fleeting.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
My broken hearts, my fabulous dance.
My fleeting song.
My twist and shout.
I am ice and dust and light. I am sky and here.
I can hear people.
I think you are near me now.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
We're over a forest.
It's midnight at Christmas.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
I think I can see you.
There's your long, white neck.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
Now I am falling.
Look up and you'll see me.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
In a moment or two.
I'll be with you.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
Be ready to catch me.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.



So Soft [Demo]



Held in your arms in the back seat,
Cruising down the main street,
How can anyone have such little defense?

You're soft.

In between the sheets, left in limbo,
Covered me like the pillow
I can hardly tell the difference.

You're soft,
So soft.
To be, to be with you
I'd leave everything.

But I don't know how to deal with you.
I swear you'd fall like a feather if I was cruel.
Love would melt me like hot butter.

You're soft,
So soft.
To be, to be with you
I'd do anything.

Walking down the street, brushing arms,
You're moonlight dancing.
I try hard to keep my feelings in.

You're soft.

Dancing to the music, so low.
I knead you like dough.
How can anyone be so loving

And soft,
So soft?
To be, to be with you
I'd leave everything.

But I don't know how to deal with you.
I swear you'd fall like a feather if I was cruel.
You melt me like hot butter.

You're soft,
So soft.
To be, to be with you
I'd do anything.



Something Like A Song [Demo Usual]



There's something that sounds like a song
In my garden, by the willow
A piper:
"Oohoo, ahoo, oohoo, ahoo, oohoo, ahoo, hoooo"

I see him when I turn the lights down low,
In my garden, wading through the pond.
Dressed in sailing wear.
"Oohoo, ahoo, oohoo, ahoo, oohoo, ahoo, hoooo"

I've called him by every name I know,
By every name I know,
But he won't answer me.
He keeps coming forward, but never moving.
Is there no destiny here?

It sounds like a song
In my garden, by the willow
A piper:
"Oohoo, ahoo, oohoo, ahoo, oohoo, ahoo, hoooo"

Somewhere In Between [Aerial]



We went up to the top of the highest hill and stopped
Still

It was just so beautiful
It was just so beautiful
It was just so beautiful

This is where the shadows come to play twixt the day
And night
Dancing and skipping
Along a chink of light

Somewhere in between
The waxing and the waning wave
Somewhere in between
What the song and silence say
Somewhere in between
The ticking and the tocking clock
Somewhere in a dream between
Sleep and waking up
Somewhere in between
Breathing out and breathing in
Like twilight is neither night nor morning

Not one of us would dare to break
The silence
Oh how we have longed
For something that would
Make us feel so...

Somewhere in between
The waxing and the waning wave
Somewhere in between
The night and the daylight
Somewhere in between
The ticking and the tocking clock
Somewhere in between
What the song and the silence say

Somewhere in between
Breathing out and breathing in

The chorus:
Goodnight sun
Goodnight sun

The sun:
Goodnight mum

Stranded At The Moonbase [Demo]



A long way up in light-years,
Just a pinpoint in space,
In a century of planetary storms,
Stranded at the moonbase,

The air is getting low.
The air is getting low.

Looking out at the roof-window,
I've seen many strange things,
From shooting stars to Stars 'n' Stripes
Thought I'd caught a glimpse of golden wings.

The air is getting low,
The air is getting low,
The air is getting low,
The air is getting low.

I got the vision of a big white dove.
I've heard the creaking of the pearly gates above.
I'm wond'ring why the big white dove
Is keeping me waiting, keeping me waiting,
Keeping me waiting, keeping me waiting,
Keeping me waiting, keeping me waiting.

Looking way down below me,
The worlds are all awhirl-whirly.
Won't you come along beside?
This place waits for company.

The air is getting low.
The air is getting low.

I leave my limbs behind me.
As I'm being lifted
Out into the, into the
Spiritual boom-boom abyss.

The air is getting low.
The air is getting low.
The air is getting low.
The air is getting low.

I got the vision of a big white dove.
I've heard the creaking of the pearly gates above.
I'm wond'ring why the big white dove
Is keeping me waiting, keeping me waiting,
Keeping me waiting, keeping me waiting,
Keeping me waiting, keeping me waiting.



Strange Phenomena [The Kick Inside]



Soon it will be the phase of the moon
When people tune in.
Every girl knows about the punctual blues,
But who's to know the power behind our moves?

A day of coincidence with the radio,
And a word that won't go away.
We know what they're all going to say.
"G" arrives "Funny, had a feeling he was on his way!"

We raise our hats to the strange phenomena.
Soul-birds of a feather flock together.
We raise our hats to the hand a-moulding us.
Sure 'nuff, 'e has the answer,
'e has the answer
'e has the answer, be-duh-be-duh-be-duh-be-duh...
"Om mani padme,
Om mani padme,
Om mani padme hum."

You pick up a paper. You read a name.
You go out. It turns up again and again.
You bump into a friend you haven't seen for a long time,
Then into another you only thought about last night.

You hear your sister calling for you,
But you don't know where from.
You know there's something wrong,
But you don't want to believe in a premonition.

Sunset [Aerial]



Could be honeycomb
In a sea of honey
A sky of honey
Whose shadow, long and low
Is slipping out of wet clothes?
And changes into
The most beautiful
Iridescent blue

Who knows who wrote that song of Summer
That blackbirds sing at dusk
This is a song of colour
Where sands sing in crimson, red and rust
Then climb into bed and turn to dust

Every sleepy light
Must say goodbye
To the day before it dies
In a sea of honey
A sky of honey
Keep us close to your heart
So if the skies turn dark
We may live on in
Comets and stars

Who knows who wrote that song of Summer
That blackbirds sing at dusk
This is a song of colour
Where sands sing in crimson, red and rust
Then climb into bed and turn to dust
Who knows who wrote that song of Summer
That blackbirds sing at dusk this is a song of colour
Where sands sing in crimson, red and rust
Then climb into bed and turn to dust

The chorus:
Oh sing of summer and a sunset
And sing for us, so that we may remember
The day writes the words right across the sky
They go all the way up to the top of the night



Sunsi [Demo]



Did you know
I don't know what goes on
When you shut the blind in your eyes?
That moment I come alive.
Nobody knows oh what you can do.

Oh Sunsi, you really make me want to seek it out.
Oh Sunsi, you release the precious key.
Precious key.
Oh Lord, the precious key.
I don't know if your mystery is the same?

Oh where is the light, where I have seen the flame.
Oh where is the light, oh I have been the flame.
Oh river light, go out with a flame.

Falling, you appear so many ways:
Falling over;
Falling down;
Falling in love;
I'm falling under your spell.
Well I know they're not aware of what you can do to me.

Oh Sunsi, you really make me want to seek it out.
Oh Sunsi, you release the precious key.
The precious key.
Oh Lord, the precious key.
I don't know if your mystery will remain?

Oh where is the light, where I have seen the flame.
Oh where is the light, oh I have been the flame.
Oh river light, go out with a flame.



Surrender Into The Roses [Demo]



Last night you were on my balcony.
You needn't try, know the whole story.
Before it's too late I must get away,
But both of us know you must stay.

Oh, come on, Carmilla,
Surrender into the roses.
Go back home under the posies.
Surrender into the roses,
Carmilla, Carmilla, Carmilla.

Tying garlic flowers around the room.
It keeps me safe, but oh! the sickly perfume.
Well, it makes me long for the good times,
When you were really alive.

Oh, come on, Carmilla,
Surrender into the roses.
Go back home under the posies.
Surrender into the roses,
Carmilla, Carmilla, Carmilla.



Suspended In Gaffa [The Dreaming]



Out in the garden
There's half of a heaven,
And we're only bluffing.
We're not ones for busting through walls,
But they've told us
Unless we can prove
That we're doing it,
We can't have it all.
(I want it all.)

He's gonna wangle
A way to get out of it.
She's an excuse
And a witness who'll talk when he's called.
But they've told us
Unless we can prove
That we're doing it,
We can't have it all.
(I want it all)
(and I want it all)
We can't have it all.
(I want it all)
"I caught a glimpse of a god, all shining and bright."

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud.
It all goes slo-mo.
I don't know why I'm crying.
Am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not until I'm ready for you,
Not until I'm ready for you.
Can I have it all.

I try to get nearer,
But as it gets clearer
There's something appears in the way,
It's a plank in me eye,
With a camel
Who's trying to get through it,
Am I doing it?
Can I have it all now?
(I want it all)

I pull out the plank and say
"Thank you for yanking me back
To the fact that there's
Always something to distract."
But sometimes it's hard
To know if I'm doing it right.
Can I have it all now?
(I want it all)
Can I have it all now?
(I want it all)
Can I have it all?
(I want it all)
I can't have it all.
"We all have a dream...maybe."

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud.
It all goes slo-mo.
I don't know why I'm crying.
Am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not until I'm ready for you,
Not until I'm ready for you.
Can I have it all.

I won't open boxes
That I am told not to.
I'm not a Pandora.
I'm much more like
That girl in the mirror.
Between you and me
She don't stand a chance of getting anywhere at all.
(I want it all)
Not anywhere at all.
(I want it all)
No, not a thing.
(I want it all)
She can't have it all.
"Mother, where are the angels? I'm scared of the changes."

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud.
It all goes slo-mo.
I don't know why I'm crying.
Am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not until I'm ready for you,
Not until I'm ready for you.

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud.
It all goes slo-mo.
"I don't know why I'm crying."
Am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not until I'm ready for you,
Not until I'm ready for you.
Can I have it all now.



Symphony In Blue [Lionheart]



I spent a lot of my time looking at blue,
The colour of my room and my mood:
Blue on the walls, blue out of my mouth;
The sort of blue between clouds, when the sun comes out,
The sort of blue in those eyes you get hung up about.

When that feeling of meaninglessness sets in,
Go blowing my mind on God:
The light in the dark, with the neon arms,
The meek He seeks, the beast He calms,
The head of the good soul department.

I see myself suddenly
On the piano, as a melody.
My terrible fear of dying
No longer plays with me,
For now I know that I'm needed
For the symphony.

I associate love with red,
The colour of my heart when she's dead;
Red in my mind when the jealousy flies,
Red in my eyes from emotional ties,
Manipulation, the danger signs.

The more I think about sex, the better it gets.
Here we have a purpose in life:
Good for the blood circulation,
Good for releasing the tension,
The root of our reincarnations.

I see myself suddenly
On the piano, as a melody.
My terrible fear of dying
No longer plays with me,
For now I know that I'm needed
For the symphony.

I spent a lot of my time looking at blue
No wonder that I blue it!

Ohhh.



Them Heavy People [The Kick Inside]



Rolling the ball,
(rolling)
Rolling the ball,
(rolling)
Rolling the ball
(rolling)
To me.
Rolling the ball,
(rolling)
Rolling the ball,
(rolling)
Rolling the ball
(rolling)
To me.

They arrived at an inconvenient time.
I was hiding in a room in my mind.
They made me look at myself. I saw it well.
I'd shut the people out of my life.

So now I take the opportunities:
Wonderful teachers ready to teach me.
I must work on my mind. For now I realize:
Everyone of us has a heaven inside.

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Them heavy people help me.
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Rolling the ball,
(rolling)
Rolling the ball,
(rolling)
Rolling the ball
(rolling)
To me.
Rolling the ball,
(rolling)
Rolling the ball,
(rolling)
Rolling the ball
(rolling)
To me.

They open doorways that I thought were shut for good.
They read me Gurdjieff and Jesu.
They build up my body, break me emotionally.
It's nearly killing me, but what a lovely feeling!

I love the whirling of the dervishes.
I love the beauty of rare innocence.
You don't need no crystal ball,
Don't fall for a magic wand.
We humans got it all, we perform the miracles.

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Them heavy people help me.
(heavy heavy)
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Rolling the, rolling the, rolling the, rolling the.

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Them heavy people help me.
(heavy heavy)
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Rolling the, rolling the, rolling the, rolling the.

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Them heavy people help me.
(heavy heavy)
Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Rolling the, rolling the, rolling the, rolling the.

Them heavy people hit me in a soft spot.
Them heavy people help me.



There Goes A Tenner [The Dreaming]



Okay, remember.
Okay, remember,
That we have just allowed
Half an hour
To get in, do it, and get out.

The sense of adventure
Is changing to danger.
The signal has been given.
I go in.
The crime begins.

My excitement
Turns into fright.
All my words fade.
What am I gonna say?
Mustn't give the game away.

We're waiting.
We're waiting.
We're waiting.

We got the job sussed.
This shop's shut for business.
The lookout has parked the car,
But kept the engine running.
Three beeps means trouble's coming.

I hope you remember
To treat the gelignite tenderly for me.
I'm having dreams about things
Not going right.
Let's leave in plenty of time tonight.

Both my partners
Act like actors:
You are Bogart,
He is George Raft,
That leaves Cagney and me.
(What about Edward G.?)

We're waiting.
We're waiting.
We're waiting.

You blow the safe up.
Then all I know is I wake up,
Covered in rubble. One of the rabble
Needs mummy.
(What's all this then?)
The government will never find the money.
(What's all this then?)

I've been here all day, (What are we gonna do with the money?)
A star in Strangeways. (I've got it!)
Apart from a photograph
They'll get nothing from me,
Not until they let me see my solicitor.

Ooh, I remember
That rich, windy weather
When you would carry me,
Pockets floating
In the breeze.

Ooh, there goes a tenner.
Hey, look! There's a fiver.
There's a ten-shilling note.
Remember them?
That's when we used to vote for him.

[In one of her descriptions of this song Kate supplied a few related lines
of verse. They appear to be additional lyrics to There Goes a
Tenner, although the meter is a little different. Here are
Kate's remarks in toto, taken from her self-penned article
"explaining" the album The Dreaming:]

"Everybody synchronize watches. Remember there's only
half an hour to do the job. We've been rehearsing for weeks,
so nothing should go wrong. Let's run through it one more time:

"I go in and distract the guard,
Frank's out the back in the getaway car,
The sign on the door turns from open to shut,
We keep them all covered, you blow the safe up,
We grab the cash, make a hasty retreat,
And tear across London using the backstreets.
Remember, be careful, give nothing away,
The arm of the Law is as long as they say."



This Woman's Work [Director's Cut]



Aha-ooh! Aha-ooh! Aha-ooh!

Pray God you can cope
I'll stand outside
This woman's work
This woman's world
Ooh, it's hard on the man
Now his part is over
Now starts the craft of the father

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking:
Of all the things I should have done, but I never did
All the things I should have said, but I never said
Make it go away!

Give me these moments back
Give them back to me
Give me that little kiss
Give me your hand

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking:
Of all the things I should have said, but I never said
All the things I should have done, but I never did
The things that you wanted for me
The things that you wanted from me
All the love I should have given, but I didn't
All the things we should have done, but we never did
All the things we should have given, but we didn't
Make it go away!
Just make it go away

Pray God you can cope.

This woman's work,
This woman's world.
Ooh, it's hard on the man.
Now his part is over.
Now starts the craft of the father.

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.

Oh, darling, make it go,
Make it go away!

All the things that you needed from me.
All the things that you wanted for me.
All the things that I should have given, but I didn't.
Oh, darling, make it go away.
Just make it go away now.

Top Of The City [Director's Cut]



One more step to the top of the city
Where just a couple of pigeons are living
Up on the angel's shoulders

I don't know if I'm closer to Heaven but
It looks like Hell down there
These streets have never been paved with gold
Welcome to the loneliest city in the world

Oh baby
It's no good for you now
Keep looking up for the ladder

I don't know if you'll love me for it
But I don't think we should suffer this
There's just one thing we can do about it

Take me up to the top of the city
Take me up to the top of the city
Take me up to the top of the city
And put me up on the angel's shoulders

See how that building there is nearly built
There's a big fire over on the north of the city
I see you walking down the street with her
I see your lights going on and off

No baby
She's no good for you now
Look I'm here with the ladder

I don't know if you love me or not
But I don't think we should ever suffer
There's just one thing we can do about this

Take me up to the top of the city
Take me up to the top of the city
Right up to the highest point of the city
Just you go up to the top of the city

I don't mind if it's dangerous
I don't mind if it's raining
Take me up to the top of the city

And put me up on the angel's shoulders
Take me up to the top of the city
Mmm yes, one more step to the top of the city
And put me up on the angel's shoulders

Un Baiser d'enfant [B-side of Ne T'enfuis Pas]



Je dis bonne nuit-nuit.
Je le borde dans le lit.
Mais ça ne va pas.

Qu'est-ce que c'est? Un baiser.
Ça me fait frémir.

Je n'ai jamais avant
Aimé un enfant
Sans contrôle.

Il n'est qu'un jeune, et à l'école.
Chez nous ils n'aimeront pas.
Sa petite main joue dans mon cour,
Juste là où ça fait mal.
Toc-toc. Qui est dans ce bébé?
Tu sais si bien y faire.

Toutes les barrières tombent.
Ça va se voir.
Ça va se voir.
Ça se voit, ça se voit, ça se voit.

Je ne peux laisser faire
Je le regretterais.
Ouh, il m'effraie!.

Il y a un homme là dans les yeux.
Je le vois en me penchant.

Ouh, il me fait peur
Quand ils chuchotent entre eux.
Le vent souffle.

Sur leurs lèvres des caresses
Qui parlent de l'amour.
Je veux frapper, je me retiens.
Je veux juste toucher.
Je dois rester et arrêter
Tout ça avant qu'il ne soit trop tard!

Toutes les barrières tombent.
Ça va se voir.
Ça va se voir.
Ça se voit. Ça se voit. Ça se voit.

L'amour.



Under Ice [Hounds Of Love/The Ninth Wave]



It's wonderful.
Everywhere, so white.
The river has frozen over.
Not a soul on the ice.
Only me skating fast.
"Hello..."
I'm speeding past trees,
Leaving little lines in the ice,
Cutting out, little lines in the ice,
Splitting, splitting sound,
Silver heels spitting, spitting snow.

There's something moving, under
"Sonar says you beat the deepness"
Under the ice,
Moving under ice,
Through water,
Trying to
"It's me!"
Get out of the cold water.
"It's me."
Something,
"It's me."
Someone help them.
"Ohhh...."



Under The Ivy [B-side of Running Up That Hill]



It wouldn't take me long
To tell you how to find it,
To tell you where we'll meet.
This little girl inside me
Is retreating to her favourite place.

Go into the garden.
Go under the ivy,
Under the leaves,
Away from the party.
Go right to the rose.
Go right to the white rose

"For me"

I sit here in the thunder,
The green on the grey.
I feel it all around me.
And it's not easy for me
To give away a secret
It's not safe,

But go into the garden.
Go under the ivy,
Under the leaves,
Away from the party.
Go right to the rose.
Go right to the white rose

"For me"

Go into the garden,
Go under the ivy,
Go under the leaves, for me.
Go right to the rose.
Go right to the white rose
I'll be waiting for you.

It wouldn't take me long
To tell you how to find it.



Violin [Never For Ever]



Four strings across the bridge,
Ready to carry me over,
Over the quavers, drunk in the bars,
Out of the realm of the orchestra,
Out of the realm of the orchestra.

Filling me up with the shivers.
Filling me up with the shivers and quivers.
Filling me up with the shivers.

Get the bow going!
Let it scream to me:
Violin! Violin! Violin!

Get the bow going!
Let it scream to me:
Violin! Violin! Violin!

Paganini up on the chimney,
Lord of the dance,
With Nero and old Nicky.
Whack that devil
Into my fiddlestick!
Give me the Banshees for B.V.s,
Give me the Banshees for B.V.s.

Jigging along with the fiddle, oh, Johnny.
Jigging along with the fiddle-dee-dee.
Jigging along with the fiddle-dee-diddle-dee-dee!

Get the bow going!
Let it scream to me:
Violin! Violin! Violin!

Leaves me enough for my country.

Hearing the Banshee a-riddle.
Hearing the Banshee a-riddle.

And jigging along with the fiddle.
Jigging along with the fiddle.
Jigging along with the fiddle.

Get the bow going!

Walk Straight Down The Middle [The Sensual World]



Can't move my arms,
Can't move my legs.
Can't say no,
I can't say yes.
Can't help myself.
I need your help.

We go
"Ooh, ooh, what do we do,
Now we just can't move?"
We're calling out for Middle Street.

We go
"Ooh, ooh, what do we do,
Now we just can't move?"
We hang on to every line,
And walk straight down the middle of it.

He thought he was gonna die,
But he didn't.
She thought she just couldn't cope,
But she did.
We thought it would be so hard,
But it wasn't.
It wasn't easy, though!

Can't say yes,

Warm And Soothing [B-side of December Will Be Magic]



Warm and soothing,
That's how I remember home.
Walking into arms
Through the back door.
Hearing voices I know well,
And long for.

Cold and boozy,
Our holiday in the Alps.
Sitting in the lobby,
Mostly smoking.
Choking on the woozy afternoon.

I'm reeling in the music
And I've only had a few.
And I'm afraid
By the way we grow old,
My darling.

Abrupt, too moody,
You making our party list.
I remember sulking
On the sofa.
For most of the winter
We were strangers.

Just one more
To ease the ache,
Before the night takes me.
When you stay asleep
On your side of the bed,
Don't look at me,
Don't look at you...

I'm reeling in the music
And I've only had a few.
And I'm afraid
By the way we grow old,
My darling.



Watching You Without Me [Hounds Of Love/The Ninth Wave]



("What's that?")
("It's four, five, six, seven...")

You can't hear me.
You can't hear me.
You can't hear what I'm saying.
You can't hear what I'm saying to you.

You watch the clock
Move the slow hand.
I should have been home
Hours ago,
But I'm not here.
But I'm not here.

You can't hear me.
You can't hear me.
You can't feel me
Here in the room with you now.
You can't hear what I'm saying.
You don't hear what I'm saying, do you?

Can't let you know
What's been happening.
There's a ghost in our home,
Just watching you without me.
I'm not here.
("You don't hear me.") [backwards]
But I'm not here.
(You can't hear me.)
But I'm not here.
(You don't hear what I'm saying.)

(Don't ignore, don't ignore me, Let me in and I won't be long)?

"We see you here." [backwards]
"We see you here."
"We see you here."
"We see you here."
"We see you here."
"We see you here."
"We see you here."
"We see you here."

You don't hear me come in.

"Help me, baby! Help me, baby! Talk to me! Listen to me, baby
listen to me, listen to me! Talk to me! Help, please listen."
"I was here before, you talked to me, you said that you didn't
think it was too late to help me..." [when played backward]

("You can't hear me.") [backwards]

"Listen, baby! Listen to me, baby! Help me, help me, baby!
Talk to me! Talk to me! Please, baby, talk to me!"

("You can't hear me.") [backwards]
You won't hear me leaving.



The Wedding List [Never For Ever]



No, I'll never give the hunt up,
And I won't muck it up.
Somehow this was it, I knew.
Maybe fate wants you dead, too:
We've come together in the very same room,
And I'm coming for you!

Do you think I'd ever let you
Get away with it, huh?
He swooned in warm maroon.
There's gas in your barrel, and I'm flooded with Doom.
You've made a wake of our honeymoon,
And I'm coming for you!

"All of the headlines said 'Passion Crime:
'Newlyweds Groom Shot Dead
'Mystery Man.' God help the bride!
She's a widow, all in red,
With his red still wet."
She said:

I'll put him on the wedding list!
I'll put him on the wedding list!
I'll get him and I will not miss.

Now, as I'm coming for you,
All I see is Rudi.
I die with him, again and again.
And I'll feel good in my revenge.
I'm gonna fill your head with lead
And I'm coming for you!

And when it's all over you'll roll over
The butt of my gun:
One in your belly, and one for Rudi.
You got what you gave by the heel of my bootie.
Bang-bang, Out! like an old cherootie,
And I'm coming for you!

"All of the headlines said 'Passion Crime:
'Newlyweds Groom Shot Dead
'Mystery Man.' God help the bride!
She's a widow, all in red,
With his red still wet, but

She sure got him on the wedding list."
I got him on the wedding list!
I got him and I did not miss.
I pinned him on the wedding list!

"After she shot the guy,
She committed suicide.
I'm coming, Rudi!
"And later, when they analysed,
They found a little one inside.
Oh oh oh ahh.
"It must have been Rudi's child."
I shot him, shot him, shot him, honey!
"Never mind, she got the guy."
He hit the ground, Rudi!
"eye for an eye."
Ashes to ashes to ashes
"An Eye for an eye."
I hit him, hit him! Ah ah ah a-oh
"An Eye for an eye."
Rudi! A-oh
"An Eye for an eye."
Rudi! Coming, coming, coming, honey.
"An Eye for an eye."
Rudi!



The Wedding List [Demo]



No, I'll never give the hunt up
And I won't muck it up
Somehow this was it, I knew
Maybe God wants you dead, too
We've come together in the very same room
And I'm coming for you!

Do you think I'd ever let you
Get away with it, huh?
We were just wed
Too happy to meet you
Rudy and me, were one of two
You've made a wake of our honeymoon
And I'm coming for you!

"All of the headlines said 'Passion Crime:
'Newlyweds Groom Shot Dead
'Mystery Man.' Oh help the bride!
She's a widow, all in red
With his red still wet"

She said
I'll put him on the wedding list!
Oh I'll get him on the wedding list!
I'll put him on the wedding list!

Now, as I'm coming for you
All I see is Rudi
I die with him, again and again
And I'll feel good in your blood and your pain
And I'll blow a hole right through your brain
And I'm coming for you!

Oh when it's finished you'll kiss the butt of my gun
One in your head, and one for my man
You got what you gave by my gold band
Now my turn for the old bang-bang
And I'm coming for you!

"All of the headlines said 'Passion Crime:
'Newlyweds Groom Shot Dead
'Mystery Man.' Oh help the bride!
She's a widow, all in red
With his red still wet"

Oh she sure got him on the wedding list
Oh she got him on the wedding list
(Ready)
She got him and she didn't miss
(Ready)
She got him on the wedding list
(Ready)
The wedding list
When they analysed
The wedding list
Was the cause of suicide
The wedding list
They found a little one inside
The wedding list
Must have been Rudi's child
The wedding list
Never mind, she got the guy
Whoa oh wedding list
She got him on the wedding list
The wedding list
She got him on the wedding list
The wedding list
She got him on the wedding list
The wedding list
She got him on the wedding list
The wedding list
She got him on the wedding list



Where Are The Lionhearts [Demo]



Destiny took me in her arms and told me:
"You're a little lost on the fall.
You fall for all the men
You shouldn't fall for, at all."
Ooh, I know she knows, but still I go on,
Well, I'm a fool.

Climbing up the (l)adders
To slide down the adders
On the rocks,
On the rocks,
On the rocks,
On the rocks...

Joan of Arc walks into my mirror,
A burning sword.
I'd like to cry. I look into her eyes.
I see she's seen, the long days and nigh(t).
"Ooh," she says,
"The games are still the same, I see,
But they've changed the names now.
Are all Lionhearts put in parks, apart?"

Lionhearts in the asylums,
Lionhearts tossed at sea,
Lionhearts who've lived their lives, like Arthur.
Lionhearts in cathedrals,
Lionhearts at mournings,
Lionhearts in every seed
But they're sown
On the rocks,
On the rocks,
On the rocks,
On the rocks...

Somebody I couldn't see
Tied me up and put me away,
Here on the rocks,
Here on the rocks,
Here on the rocks...



While Davy Dozed [Demo]



I stayed the night in your arms.
Over half an hour I stayed awake,
Looking at you.

Your face seemed radiant,
The walls to Steve
With a crack emerged
As I held you.

Oo-ooh...

While na-na ne-ne-na ne-na-na Davy dozed.
I closed my eyes
Realised the time is close for us to go.
Hold me, oh hold me.

Davy, Davy,
Bending like a willow-branch.
He rocks me like a baby.

Oo-ooh...

I know he loves another lady,
But I still see him in the hallway
Calling me.

Oh, when we danced so closely,
I really felt as though I was melting
In a pool.

Oo-ooh...

Oh while na-na na-na na-na-na Davy dozed.
I closed my eyes
Realised the time is close for us to go.
Hold me, please hold me.

Davy, Davy,
Bending like a willow-branch.
He rocks me like a baby.

Oo-ooh...

Wild Man [50 Words For Snow]



They call you an animal, the Kangchenjunga Demon, Wild Man, Metoh-Kangmi.
Lying in my tent, I can hear your cry echoing round the mountainside.
You sound lonely.
While crossing the Lhakpa-La something jumped down from the rocks.
In the remote Garo Hills by Dipu Marak we found footprints in the snow.
The schoolmaster of Darjeeling said he saw you by the Tengboche Monastery.
You were playing in the snow. You were banging on the doors.
You got up on the roof, Roof of the World.
You were pulling up the rhodedendrons. Loping down the mountain.
They want to know you. They will hunt you down, then they will kill you.
Run away, run away, run away.
While crossing the Lhakpa-La something jumped down from the rocks.
In the remote Garo Hills by Dipu Marak we found footprints in the snow.
We found your footprints in the snow. We brushed them all away.
From the sherpas of Annapurna to the rinpoche of Qinghai.
Shepherds from Mount Kailash to Himachal Pradesh found footprints in the
snow.
You're not a langur monkey nor a big brown bear - You're the Wild Man.
They say they saw you drowned near the Rongbuk Glacier.
They want to hunt you down. You're not an animal.
The Lamas say you're not an animal.



Wow [Lionheart]



Emily...

We're all alone on the stage tonight.
We've been told we're not afraid of you.
We know all our lines so well, uh-huh.
We've said them so many times:
Time and time again,
Line and line again.

Ooh, yeah, you're amazing!
We think you're incredible.
You say we're fantastic,
But still we don't head the bill.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Unbelievable!
Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Unbelievable!

When the actor reaches his death,
You know it's not for real. He just holds his breath.
But he always dives too soon, too fast to save himself.

He'll never make the screen.
He'll never make the 'Sweeney',
Be that movie queen.
He's too busy hitting the vaseline.

Ooh, yeah, you're amazing!
We think you are really cool.
We'd give you a part, my love,
But you'd have to play the fool.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Unbelievable!
Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Unbelievable!

We're all alone on the stage tonight.
We're all alone,
On the stage,
Tonigh-ee-i-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-i-e

Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, ohh.



Wuthering Heights [The Kick Inside]



Out on the wiley, windy moors
We'd roll and fall in green.
You had a temper like my jealousy:
Too hot, too greedy.
How could you leave me,
When I needed to possess you?
I hated you. I loved you, too.

Bad dreams in the night.
They told me I was going to lose the fight,
Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights.

Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy,
I've come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your win-dow.

Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy,
I've come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your win-dow.

Ooh, it gets dark! It gets lonely,
On the other side from you.
I pine a lot. I find the lot
Falls through without you.
I'm coming back, love.
Cruel Heathcliff, my one dream,
My only master.

Too long I roam in the night.
I'm coming back to his side, to put it right.
I'm coming home to wuthering, wuthering,
Wuthering Heights,

Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy,
I've come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your win-dow.

Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy,
I've come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your win-dow.

Ooh! Let me have it.
Let me grab your soul away.
Ooh! Let me have it.
Let me grab your soul away.
You know it's me, Cathy!

Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy,
I've come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your win-dow.

Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy,
I've come home. I'm so cold!
Let me in-a-your win-dow.

Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy,
I've come home. I'm so cold!



You Want Alchemy [Red Shoes CD Single]



On a lonely afternoon,
On a cloudbusting kind of day.
We took a wrong mystery tour,
We got completly lost.
Somewhere up in the hills,
And we came upon a bee-keeper,
And he said.

Did you know they can change it all?

You want alchemy,
You turn the roses into gold.
You turn the lilac into honey,
You make love for the peaches.

And we're thinking,
Who is this guy?
Is he some kind of mad or what?
He said.

I don't meet many people,
I'm very busy with the hives.
Oh, the sun's going down,
Oh, when's my cloud of bees coming home?

They got alchemy,
You turn the roses into gold.
You turn the lilac into honey,
You make love for the peaches.

And they'll do it,
Do it for you.
They'll do it,
Do it for you.
And if you see them,
Send them right on home to me.

What they going to do-oo-oo?

They're going to "argh-argh-argh" turn the roses into gold.
And they'll do it for you,
Do it for you.

What they going to do-oo-oo?

Turn the "argh-argh-argh"

You make love for the peaches.

What they going to do-oo-oo?

Turn the lilac into honey.
And they'll do it for you,
Do it for you.

And why not?
It brings you so much pleasure.



You Were The Star [Demo]



Were the star
When there was no one,
You were in the sky
And I was nowhere to be seen.

You have fallen, oh my star
And you have lost your faith,
And tomorrow means the same to me,
To all.

Nevermind
For tomorrow
Will be
Half a genius shining

You were the star
When there was no one,
You were in the sky
And I was nowhere to be seen.

Now you have fallen, oh my star
And you have lost your faith
And tomorrow means the same to me,
To you,
To all.

Nevermind
For tomorrow
Will be
Half a genius shining
Half a genius shining



You're The One [The Red Shoes]



It's alright I'll come 'round when you're not in
And I'll pick up all my things
Everything I have I bought with you
But that's alright too
It's just everything I do
We did together
And there's a little piece of you
In whatever
I've got everything I need
I've got petrol in the car
I've got some money with me
There's just one problem

You're the only one I want
You're the only one I want
You're the only one I want
You're the only one I want

It's alright I know where I'm going
I'm going to stay with my friend
Mmm, yes, he is very good looking
The only trouble is he's not you
He can't do what you do
He can't make me laugh and cry
At the same time
Let's change things
Let's danger it up
We're crazy enough
I just can't take it

You're the only one I want
You're the only one I want
You're the only one I want
You're the only one I want

I know where I'm going
But I don't want to leave
I just have one problem
We're best friends, yeah?
We tied ourselves in knots
Doing cartwheels 'cross the floor
Just forget it alright

Sugar
Honey
Sugar
Whaaaat are you doing??
Treacle!
Sugar.
