Lady d'Arbanville
My lady d'arbanville, why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

My lady d'arbanville why does it grieve me so?
But your heart seems so silent.
Why do you breathe so low, why do you breathe so low,

My lady d'arbanville why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

My lady d'arbanville, you look so cold tonight.
Your lips feel like winter,
Your skin has turned to white, your skin has turned to white.

My lady d'arbanville, why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

La la la la la....

My lady d'arbanville why does it grieve me so?
But your heart seems so silent.
Why do you breathe so low, why do you breathe so low,

I loved you my lady, though in your grave you lie,
I'll always be with you
This rose will never die, this rose will never die.

I loved you my lady, though in your grave you lie,
I'll always be with you
This rose will never die, this rose will never die.back to top
Maybe You're Right
Now maybe you're right and maybe you're wrong
But I ain't gonna argue with you no more
I've done it for too long.
It was getting so good why then, where did it go?
I can't think about it no more tell me if you know.
You were loving me, I was loving you
But now there ain't nothing but regretting
Nothing, nothing but regretting everything we do.

I put up with your lies like you put up with mine,
But God knows we should have stopped somewhere,
We could have taken the time,
But time has turned, yes, some call it the end.
So tell me, tell me did you really love me like a friend?
You know you don't have to pretend,
It's all over now it'll never happen again, no no no,
It'll never happen again , it won't happen again
Never, never, never, it'll never happen again
No, no, no, no.....

So maybe you're right, and maybe you're wrong
But I ain't gonna argue with you no more
I've done it for too long.
It was getting so good why then, where did it go?
I can't think about it no more tell me if you know.
You were loving me, I was loving you
But now there ain't nothing but regretting
Nothing, nothing but regretting everything we do.back to top

Oh mama, mama see me, mama, mama see me
I'm a pop star.

Yes, I'm going on the t.v. now.
Yes, I'm going on the t.v. now.
Yes, I'm going on the t.v. now.
Oh mama, mama see me, mama, mama see me

I Think I See the Light
I used to trust nobody, trusting even less their words,
Until I found somebody, there was no one I preferred,
My heart was made of stone, my eyes saw only misty grey,
Until you came into my life girl, I saw everyone that way.
Until I found the one I needed at my side,
I think I would have been a sad man all my life.

I think I see the light coming to me,
Coming through me giving me a second sight.
So shine, shine, shine,
Shine, shine, shine,
Shine, shine, shine.

I used to walk alone, every step seemed the same.
This world was not my home, so there was nothing much to gain.
Look up and see the clouds, look down and see the cold floor.
Until you came into my life girl, I saw nothing, nothing more.
Until I found the one I needed at my side,
I think I would have been a sad man all my life.

I think I see the light coming to me,
Coming through me giving me a second sight.
So shine, shine, shine,
Shine, shine, shine,
Shine, shine, shine.back to top
Trouble
Trouble
Oh trouble set me free
I have seen your face
And it's too much too much for me

Trouble
Oh trouble can't you see
You're eating my heart away
And there's nothing much left of me

I've drunk your wine
You have made your world mine
So won't you be fair
So won't you be fair

I don't want no more of you
So won't you be kind to me
Just let me go where
I'll have to go there

Trouble
Oh trouble move away
I have seen your face
And it's too much for me today

Trouble
Oh trouble can't you see
You have made me a wreck
Now won't you leave me in my misery

I've seen your eyes
And I can see death's disguise
Hangin' on me
Hangin' on me

I'm beat, I'm torn
Shattered and tossed and worn
Too shocking to see
Too shocking to see

Trouble
Oh trouble move from me
I have paid my debt
Now won't you leave me in my misery

Trouble
Oh trouble please be kind
I don't want no fight
And I haven't got a lot of timeback to top
Mona Bone Jakon
Yes, I've got a mona bone jakon
But it won't be lonely for long.
Yes, I've got a mona bone jakon
But it won't be lonely for long.

Yes, I've got my reasons and to me they're all true,
And I wouldn't change them, not even for you.

Yes, I've got a mona bone jakon
But it won't be lonely for long.

Yeah!...back to top
I Wish, I Wish
I wish I knew, I wish I knew
What makes me, me, and what makes you, you.
It's just another point of view, ooo.
A state of mind I'm going through, yes.
So what I see is never true, ahhh.

I wish I could tell, I wish I could tell
What makes a heaven what makes a hell.
And do I get to ring my bell, ooo.
Or land up in some dusty cell, no.
While others reach the big hotel, yeah.

I wish I had, I wish I had
The secret of good, and the secret of bad.
Why does this question drive me mad? ahhh.
'cause I was taught when but a lad, yes,
That bad was good and good was bad, ahhh.

I wish I knew the mystery of
That thing called hate, and that thing called love.
What makes the in-between so rough? ahhh.
Why is it always push and shove? ahhh
I guess I just don't know enough, yes.back to top
Katmandu
I sit beside the dark
Beneath the mire
Cold grey dusty day
The morning lake
Drinks up the sky

Katmandu I'll soon be seeing you
And your strange bewildering time
Will hold me down

Chop me some broken wood
We'll start a fire
White warm light the dawn
And help me see
Old satan's tree

Katmandu I'll soon be touching you
And your strange bewildering time
Will hold me down

Pass me my hat and coat
Lock up the cabin
Slow night treat me right
Until I go
Be nice to know

Katmandu I'll soon be seeing you
And your strange bewildering time
Will keep me homeback to top
Time
Time rise
Time fall
Time leaves you nothing,
Nothing at all

Words, just words don't know
Words take you nowhere,
Nowhere to go, to go.

Back....
I'm going back.
Ooo, going back.back to top
Fill My Eyes
And in the morning when you fill my eyes
I knew that day I couldn't do,
Ahh, no wrong, I couldn't do.

And so my mind begins to memorize
'cause time will never seem the same,
Ahh, no more, never again.

I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't go,
My legs are weak my heels are low.
I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't roll.
Can't make no headway on this road.

There's an empty space inside me now,
A wasteland deep beneath the snow,
So cold, nothing'll grow.

I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't go,
My legs are weak my heels are low.
I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't roll.
Can't make no headway on this road. what road?

And in the morning when you fill my eyes
I knew that day I couldn't do,
Ahh, no wrong, I couldn't do.back to top
Lilywhite
Back up on the mended road
I pause
Taking time to check the dial

And the lilywhite
I never knew her name
But she'll be passing my way sometime again.

I raise my hand and touch the wheel
Of change
Taking time to check the dial

Thank the lilywhite
I never knew her name
But she'll be passing my way sometime again.
But she'll be passing my way sometime again.back to top
