LYRICS

RIVER

 

I've made a decision, to throw away the letters that I've kept for years

I don't need permission, just sitting in a room full of souvenirs    

Turning a new page, I can't wait.  Didn't think I had it in me.

 

Eye of the river

Mouth of the sea

I wanna be like the water

Going where I need to be

If I'm to deliver

I have to believe

I am a river

 

It's part of my condition

It's hard to let go of the devil that you know

But now I'm in remission 

Packing up my boxes letting it all go    

Starting a new day, I can't wait, didn't think I had it in me.

 

Eye of the river

Mouth of the sea

I wanna be like the water

Going where I need to be

If I'm to deliver

I have to believe

I am a river

 

A hundredth time, the well worn lines they drags me down and they pull me under

and I wonder in this life of mine, can make the climb?

Can turn the tide

one more time?


NEWTON'S LAW

 

I sometimes lie sometimes lie on the grass at night

wondering if I fell

Through the sky through the sky smash the glass ignite

the oyster in the shell

Could I fly, cut the tie to the past, slide on

culling the unanswered calls

I sometimes lie sometimes lie on the grass at night

 

I’m not too young to say I’m lonely

I’m not too old to say I’m bored

I’m not too proud for you to hold me

Won’t you help me, like you did before

Can you help me now?

Newton’s Law

 

I sometimes lie sometimes lie on the grass and dream

wanna feel the heat you burn

In the flesh rip the corner run down the seam

feel the pulling from the planet’s palm

Can’t deny bitter light in the love I’ve seen

won’t you come on in and turn me on

I sometimes lie sometimes lie on the past it seems

 

I’m not too young to say I’m lonely

I’m not too old to say I’m bored

I’m not too proud for you to hold me

Won’t you help me, like you did before

Can you help me now?

Newton’s Law

oh oh oh Newton’s Law

 

I sometimes lie sometimes lie on the grass and cry

could gravity let me go

Holding on to the ringing in the great divide 

there’s something else you don’t know

I walked the line til the dust and the grime dried on

til the dying outlived the grow

I sometimes lie sometimes lie on the grass and cry

 

I’m not too young to say I’m lonely

I’m not too old to say I’m bored

I’m not too proud for you to hold me

Won’t you help me, like you did before

Can you help me now?

Newton’s Law 

oh oh oh Newton’s Law


INTIMATE CONVERSATION

 

The most intimate conversation I ever had was with a stranger

He was almost naked on the bed

All I could do was speak my mind and bread the bread

 

His eyes so dark hair darker still

Skin so white as he lay in the sheets

I told him things I’d never said before

The way he listened made me show him so much more

 

He brushed my hair

The way he cared

Surprised myself

He brushed my hair

The way he cared

Surprised myself

I didn’t know I had it in me

I didn’t know I had it in me

 

The most intimate conversation I ever had was with a stranger

He took me places I never dared to go

Backstage in his one man show so sacred

 

He smiled as the words I spoke rolled off my tongue and then he kissed me  

I could see us in his eyes so bright

The way he held me close that night

Come injest me

 

He brushed my hair

The way he cared

Surprised myself

He brushed my hair

The way he cared

Surprised myself

I didn’t know I had it in me

I didn’t know I had it in me


AS LONG AS WE'RE DANCING

 

Bird fly north

Far wind blow

I'm your ebb

You're my flow

 

As long as we’re dancing

As long as we’re dancing

 

One day

You’ll say

We were something

 

Youth’s last song

In one voice

Here and gone

Endless joy

 

As long as we’re dancing

As long as we’re dancing

 

My blood, my kin

Wake my body

 

As long as we’re dancing

As long as we’re dancing

 

In the union 

Run the ribbon round
