Winter Blue
Kiss your lashes, hiss you low
I'm driven to you like the driven snow
There's a place for us to lie
For every lover there's a piece of sky

To every life a light that shines
To every heart a beat that's true
Baby you're my yellow summer
Baby you're my winterblue

You know that this was meant to be
Long ago a hundred years from now
Tossing on an open sea
Love so good it's easy to go down

To every life a light that shines
To every heart a beat that's true
Baby you're my yellow summer
Baby you're my winterblue
Baby you're my yellow summer
Baby you're my winterblue

To every life a light that shines
To every heart a beat that's true
Baby you're my yellow summer
Baby you're my winterblue

Love you like a jungle fever
I'll never never never, I'll never leave
Through every vein and every fibre
I'll never never never, I'll never leave

To every life a light that shines
To every heart a beat that's true
Baby you're my yellow summer
Baby you're my winterblue
Baby you're my yellow summer
Baby you're my winterblue
Baby you're my yellow summer
Baby you're my winterblue
Winterblue, winterblue ...
Winterblue, my yellow summer ...back to top
Walk This World
I have slept beside the winter and the green is growing slow
I have watched you find the places hidden by the snow
I have tripped into a valley that is blue till you can see
I want you to come walk this world with me

With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
Holding on and on to what we believe
I'm not touched but I'm aching to be
I want you to come walk this world with me.

And I'm sucked in by the wonder and I'm fucked up by the lies
And I dig a hole to lie in and I build some wings to fly
And I think that I could love you 'cause you know how to be free
I want you to come walk this world with me.

With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
Holding on and on 'til we believe
With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
I'm not touched but I'm aching to be
I want you to come, I want you to come
I want you to come walk this world with me.

And it's burning in our fingers and it's burning on the road
And I like the way you're broken and I'll like you when you're old
And I see you in the garden and I feel you plant the seed
I want you to come walk this world with me.

With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
Holding on and on 'til we believe
With the light in our eyes it's hard to see
I'm not touched but I'm aching to be
I want you to come, I want you to come
I want you to come walk this world with me.back to top
Island
There are parts of me he'll never know,
My wild horses and my river beds,
And in my throat voices he'll never hear.
He pulls at me like a cherry tree,
And I can still move, but I don't speak about it.
Pretend I'm crazy, pretend I'm dead.
He's to scared to hit me now, he'll bring flowers istead.

I need an island, somewhere to sink a stone
I need an island, somewhere to bury you,
Somewhere to go.

And the dogwoods shimmer in october sun,
'oh sweet thing' he sings to me,
'you're the only one.'

I need an island, somewhere to sink a stone
I need an island, somewhere to bury you, somewhere
I need an island, somewhere to sink a stone
I need an island, somewhere to bury you, somewhere to go.

And I don't know why I can't tell my sister,
He spat in my face again, and I don't want to die here.
You know that dream when your feet won't move,
You want to come but your body won't let you.
He steals it from me.he steals it from me.
It shines like sweat, like jewels,
Like something that has died to soon.
He fucks with the beauty.
A kiss, a kick, a kiss, a kick, a kiss kiss kick.
He steals it from me.
It's out of my hands again.

I need an island, somewhere to sink a stone
I need an island, somewhere to bury you,
Somewhere to go, to go...back to top
Heart and Shoulder
Wanna cry for you
Would it do any good?
If I rained for you
It would just be water

And the night's with you
And the storm's in your hand
And you're down, and you're down
And I can't lift you

I'm powerless to change your world
I'm powerless to stop the hurt

But I'll give you my heart
Give you my shoulder
I give you my heart
Give you my shoulder
Over and over

Wanna run for you
Would it do any good?
If I flew for you
You would still be standing

And it's hard watching
'cause I'm part of you
And it's hard not to
Not to know what I can do

I'm powerless to change your world
I'm powerless to stop the hurt

I'm trying hard to be your tower of strength
I'm trying hard to bring you back to joy

I'll give you my heart
Give you my shoulder
I give you my heart
Give you my shoulder

When the night just cuts you through
And the dream is lost to you
When you're worried and confused

I will give you my heart give you my shoulder
I give you my heart
Give you my shoulder
Over and over

Time and again
Give you my shoulder
I will
I give you my heart
Give you my shoulder
I will
Time and again
Over and over
I give you my heart
Give you my shoulderback to top
Paper Cup
Wishful thinking I might be yours
Drifting on every step
I'm always drawn to the dark horse
Sweet sweet, oh nothing's said

And every dream, every, is just a dream after all
And everything stands so still when you dance
Everything spins so fast
And the night's in a paper cup
When you want it to last

Wishful thinking you might be mine
Every shiver sends
One breath under the bridge of sighs
Bending where the river bends

And every dream, every, is just a dream, after all

And everything stands so still when you dance
Everything spins so fast
And the nights in a paper cup
When you want it to last

And every dream, every, is just a dream after all
And everything stands so still when you dance
Everything spins so fast
And the night's in a paper cup
When you want it to last

And everything stands so still when you dance
Everything spins so fast
And the night's in a paper cup
When you want it to lastback to top
London Rain (Nothing Heals Me Like You Do)
I'm coming, I'm coming home to you
I'm alive, I'm a mess
I can't wait to get home to you
To get warm and undressed

There've been changes beyond my dreams
Everybody wants me to sing
There've been changes beyond my grasp
Things I'm sinking in

So keep me, keep me in your bed all day, all day
Nothing heals me like you do
Nothing heals me like you do

And when somebody knows you well
Well, there's no comfort like that
And when somebody needs you
Well, there's no drug like that

So keep me, keep me in your bed all day, all day
Nothing heals me like you do
Nothing heals me like you do

And when I'm home, curled in your arms
And I'm safe again
I'll close my eyes and sleep, sleep
To the sound of london rain

So keep me, keep me in your bed all day, all day
Nothing heals me like you do
So keep me, keep me in your bed all day, all day
Nothing heals me like you do
Nothing heals me like you do

Nothing falls like london rain
Nothing heals me like you do
Nothing falls like london rain
Nothing heals me like you do
Nothing falls like london rain
Nothing heals me like you do
Nothing falls like london rain
Nothing heals me like you doback to top
Not Only Human
Morning is almost here - let it wait
I just want to lie here awhile, tempting fate
I don't think I could breathe now with you gone
But it's not weakness it's just something I've begun

Maybe there's a light that's always on
Maybe we're not only human, maybe
Maybe there's a light that's always on
And we're not only human

When you're sleeping your ceramic
You're surrounded by little stars
Every shimmer is a searchlight
Every planet is ours

Change the street change the decade
Still the longing's left inside
But why am I too small to carry you?
Why does twilight make me cry?

Maybe there's a light that's always on
Maybe we're not only human, maybe
Maybe there's a light that's always on
And we're not only human

When all is said and done
When all the weight is gone
When all is said and done
When all the weight is gone
We're not only human

Life is something set to music
I can hear it when I'm sad
There's a chord in every muscle
Every kiss you ever had
There's a power when you're near me
In our heads or in our bones
I know nothing but I'm guessing
When we die we're not alone

Maybe there's a light that's always on
Maybe we're not only human, maybe
Maybe there's a light that's always on
And we're not only human

When all is said and done
When all the weight is gone
When all is said and done
When all the weight is gone
We're not only human
Not only human
Not only human
Not only human
Not only, yeah, human.
No, human, human.

Doubled Up
I saw a mountain from higher above.
I held your hand and I was doubled up in love.

Big sky above me, a river inside me
And I'm doubled up in love.

You're watching your step but you fall as you're walking.
You take it in stride but still you fall as you're walking.

Big sky above me, a river inside me
And I'm doubled up in love.

Feels good it feels like poetry
Don't ask me to explain it just
Feels good, like poetry,
I'm doubled up again.

Look at the sky,
Lift off like an aeroplane,
Watch the ground come up to meet you.

Big sky above me, a river inside me
And I'm doubled up in love.

Feels good, it feels like poetry,
Don't ask me to explain it just
Feels good, like poetry.
I'm doubled up again.back to top
Truth and Bone
Sometime I can feel you breathing into me.
And these hands I can feel them tugging at my sleeve,
I move through the day in the rhythms that I've known.
I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to truth and bone.

All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down.
All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone.

My mouth is full of secrets I'm too afraid to tell.
My body's full of longing for you to know me well.
I move through the day in the rhythms that I've known.
I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to thruth and bone.

All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down
All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone.

I think of sinking in way over my shoulders,
Let the water, the water take me in and i
Need you to cut through to where I'm hidden,
I'm awkward and I'm too polite and I want
Two stars for arms like orion I could
Breathe in and breathe in and breathe out.
If I could only lose myself
I would lose myself in you,
I move trough the day in the rhythms that I've known.
I've got this crazy dream of stripping down to truth and bone.

All of it, all of it, all of it stripped down
All of it, all of it, all of it, to truth and bone.back to top
I'm the Girl
I've got a memory
A thousand years old
And I know secrets
I've never been told

And I've got jewels
I haven't found
And they'll return me
To the ground

I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me

And I'm a siren
I'll wreck you on my shores
And I'm godiva
I'll call you back for more

And I'm medusa
And I'm your favourite doll
And I'm a georgia o'keefe
Hanging on your wall

I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me

I'm joan of arc
I'm the girl next door
I'm the mother and the daughter
Of the mother and the daughter before

And I remember being born just sound and light
And sound and light and light
And I remember the first time, skin on skin in the arms
In the arms of the night
Well how many times have we looked up into the starry skies
And how many times have we felt the passion rise

Every ruby-lipped girl baby, old lady, squaw junkie, girl after girl after girl
Every muse, whore, good witch, princess, back arching, year after year after year

I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me
I'm the girl, I'm the girl, I'm the girl
You know me

I'm joan of arc
I'm the girl next door
I'm the mother and the daughter
Of the mother and the daughter
The mother and the daughter
Of the mother and the daughter
The mother and the daughter
Of the mother and the daughter

Heal
Fall for me, my southern cross, my star
Shine for me when love has gone too far
I've got you belly-deep in me.

Just a little breath on the water is all we need
Just a little strenght in our hearts -
Enough to heal,
Enough to heal.

Dig me out, can't leave this love for dead
Hand to mouth we're picking up the thread
I've got you belly-deep in me.

Just a little breath on the water now is all we need
Just a little strenght in our hearts,
Enough to heal,
Enough to heal.

And the sea glistens,
And the waves pull us in
There's something rising up and up.

Just a little breath on the water now,
Just a little strenght in our hearts,
Enough to heal,
Enough to heal.back to top

Sugar
On the vermont transit bus I leaned my arm into alittle chink of sun,
Going somewhere older than I was,
Strapped into something tight, keeping me small.
I dug into you like rock climbing;
Too scared of coming down,
Too scared of going up,
Too scared of rockface.
I should've split my sides or spilled my guts or hit you or something,
But I was good, and your father's little pancakes
So round and perfect and me sitting up too straight,
Laughing in wrong places, kissing you,
Kissing up, kissing too soon.

When the cock crows
When the morning comes where will I go?
When the cock crows
When the love is gone where will I go?

And when you got me pregnant I stopped the party and
I stopped the typewriter and I stopped your dumb ball game in the red barn and i
Stopped your father and bled instead.
And I felt the lie - something sticky on the inside,
A bitter wind in my throat,
Stopping me wanting,
In my stomach, in my head and you said

Sugar sugar, you couldn't come come
Sugar sugar, without your mother
Sugar sugar, you couldn't taste it
Sugar sugar, in my throat.

When the cock crows
When the morning comes where will I go?
When the cock crows
When the love is gone where will I go?back to top
I'm on Fire
Hey little boy is your mum home
Did she go away and leave you all alone
I got a bad desire
Oh oh oh, I'm on fire.

Tell me now baby is she good to you
Can she do to you the things that I do
I can take you higher
Oh oh oh, I'm on fire
Oh oh oh, I'm on fire.

Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby
Edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
Through the middle of my soul.

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running through the middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
Oh oh oh, I'm on fire
Oh oh oh, I'm on fire.back to top
