My Lighthouse
Come up to my lighthouse for I have something I wish to say
It can wait for a moment; well in fact
It can wait all day
I just wanted to bring you up here so you could have the chance to see
The beauty of this situation that
You could share with me

It may seem strange
To talk of love and then lighthouses
It's not strange
To me
Hey
All alone
You and I in our high tower
That's the way
To be

Some laugh at my lighthouse they say it's just an ivory tower
But I don't mind because I know
Their envy grows by the hour
See I have a purpose up here to guide the ships upon their way
All this is mine; it could be yours too
What do you say?

It may seem strange
To talk of love and then lighthouses
It's not strange
To me
Hey
All alone
You and I in our high tower
That's the way
To be
Hehehey hey.back to top
Wishful Thinking
When I was with this girl last night / she held me tight; it turned me on / the moon was
Dark and those clothes were tight / her perfume strong; it turned me on / fleeting moments
Touched in the night / then so strong but banished by the light / her presence gone,
Memories remain / of how she kissed and turned me on / now there's this love inside of me
/ I've got this love / inside of me / and I still have dull aching pain / desire to reach
And touch you once again / distractions cannot sate the need / it grows once more, it
Grows once more / I've got this love inside of me / I've got this love / inside of me /
I've got this love inside of me / I've got this love / inside of me / I have this pain
Inside of me / why can't you see? why can't you see? / I'm stranded here with no way home
/ please rescue me, oh won't you rescue me? / I've got this love inside of me / I've got
This love / inside of me / I've got this love inside of me / I've got this love / inside
Of me.back to top
Joking Aside
I hate to complain, you know, but then again / I cannot pretend nothing's wrong / looking
At my present situation, the act cannot last for long / viewed from outside these pursuits
I might try / seem possessed of a certain allure / now they're no longer a source of
Mystery my faith in them's more unsure / now the time to play is over / time to dispose of
The lies / time to show what's really / on my mind / yes I'd like to turn you over / to
See what's on your other side / to see if the problem's / in my mind / in my mind / the
Choice is quite clear, to move on or stay here / decision is harder to take / reject what
I have for something unstable could easily be a mistake / so I walk round the place with a
Smile on my face / pretending the best that I can / hoping to lose the inclination to
Desire what I can't understand / and the time to play is over / time to dispose of the
Lies / time to show what's really / on my mind / yes I'd like to turn you over / to see
What's on your other side / to see if the problem's / in my mind / in my mind / lalalalala
Lalalalala... / now the time to play is over / time to dispose of the lies / time to show
What's really / on my mind / yes I'd like to turn you over / to see what's on your other
Side / like to turn it over / in my mind / in my mind / in my mind / in my mind / in my
Mind.back to top
Boats and Trains
Would you like to hear / about the things I fear? / about my life, and loves too? / well
Why should I tell you? / if I told you a secret / you'd be sure to leak it / you couldn't
Keep it inside / no matter how hard you tried / on boats and trains and / and boats and
Trains and / funny things and / funny things and / la la la...back to top
Blue Girls
The blue girls that bake in the sun
Skin falls in flakes from each one
Like leaves from autumn trees
They float upon the breeze
These girls you have loved
Are slowly decaying
Ah
Drying out in the sun
Before your eyes
Wild stares in your face
They seem to accuse you
Oh
What have you done
To earn this prize?
The flesh underneath candy-pink
Quite a strange affair you might think
They gasp and moan for air
Beached fish on your lawn-chair
These girls you have loved
Are slowly decaying
Ah
Drying out in the sun
Before your eyes
Wild stares in your face
They seem to accuse you
Oh
What have you done
To earn this prize?
Fragments left at the end of the day
A pile of blue that is soon swept away
Goodbye, blue girls, goodbye
Would it be too much to cry?
These girls you have loved
Have slowly decayed
Ah
They dried out in the sun
Before your eyes
Wild stares in your face
They seem to accuse you
Oh
What did you do
To earn this prize?back to top
Love Love
I thought so long and suddenly I realised / I love love / I thought so long and suddenly i
Realised / I love love / am I loving the girl / or the feeling I feel? / is it just the
Idea that I like / or is it for real? / I recall a special friend, I invited her home for
Tea / and while my mother cooked a meal she was under the table with me / I thought so
Long and suddenly I realised / I love love / I thought so long and suddenly I realised / i
Love love / these ideas that I have / remain fixed in my head / only the characters change
/ it's someone else there instead / one day we went down to the park to feed the ducks
Some bread / foul fowls wouldn't touch a scrap so we jumped in the duckpond instead / i
Thought so long and suddenly I realised / I love love / I thought so long and suddenly i
Realised / I love love / lalalalala...back to top
In Many Ways
Hey
You're treading on my life
You're leaving marks, but that's alright
In a year or so, I'll look back and I'll smile
These things last only for a while
In many ways
This is a waste of time
What will become of it all?
I make you cry
Know you in crowded streets
Not what I wanted at all
Then
What else could I do
Instead of thinking about you?
Pleasure now will justify our love
See, I even call it love
In many ways
There's nothing I'd rather do
One kiss makes sense of it all
And what's to come?
Let's just not think about it, it might never happen at all.back to top
Looking for Life
Sure you had something to hide
I took your bag and looked inside
I was looking for life
Nothing inside but memories
The same as those I keep with me
I'm still looking for life
Yes I'm looking for life
Yes I'm looking for life
There's more to love than holding hands
But I think that we both understand
It's part of looking for life
I thought so long I couldn't think
But thought was what was hindering me
And now I'm looking for life
Yes I'm looking for life
Yes I'm looking for life
Yes I'm looking for life
Yes I'm looking for life
Yes I'm looking for life
Yes I'm looking for life
I'm looking for life
I'm looking for life.back to top
