A Sort Of Homecoming
And you know it's time to go
Through the sleet and driving snow
Across the fields of mourning
Light in the distance

And you hunger for the time
Time to heal, desire, time
And your earth moves beneath
Your own dream landscape

Oh, oh, oh...
On borderland we run...

I'll be there
I'll be there...
Tonight
A high road
A high road out from here

The city walls are all come down
The dust, a smoke screen all around
See faces ploughed like fields that once
Gave no resistance

And we live by the side of the road
On the side of a hill
As the valley explode
Dislocated, suffocated
The land grows weary of it's own

Oh, oh, oh...on borderland we run...
And still we run
We run and don't look back
I'll be there
I'll be there
Tonight
Tonight

I'll be there tonight...i believe
I'll be there...somehow
I'll be there...tonight
Tonight

The wind will crack in winter time
This bomb-blast lightning waltz
No spoken words, just a scream...

Tonight we'll build a bridge
Across the sea and land
See the sky, the burning rain
She will die and live again
Tonight

And your heart beats so slow
Through the rain and fallen snow
Across the fields of mourning
Light's in the distance

Oh don't sorrow, no don't weep
For tonight, at last
I am coming home
I am coming homeback to top
Pride
One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come, he to justify
One man to overthrow

Chorus:
In the name of love
One more in the name of love
In the name of love
One more in the name of love

One man come on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

Chorus

Early morning, april four
Shot rings out in the memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

Chorus

Spoken: for the reverent martin luther king - saint.

Chorus

In the name of loveback to top
Wire
Innocent and in a sense I am
Guilty of the crime that's now in hand
Sutch a nice day
To throw your life away
Sutch a nice day
To let it go
Oh these eyes, I can't believe it
Cold, this heart is slow,
Heart is stone

Call me
Sutch a cold heart
Sutch a cold man
Watch you tear your self apart
Soul leaves on my soul to kill
Soul leaves on the longest sleep
The longest sleep

On I come and out you go you get
Here we are again, now place your bets
Is this the time ?
The time to win or loose ?
Is this the time ?
The time to choose ?

Oh these eyes, I can't believe it
Soul burns with a cold fire
Cold, this heart is slow,
Heart is stone

Any time your on there
Give some away
Wont you tell me
That's it just give me it

I'm on your side
Be on the same side
I'm alright jack
You get off my back
I won't go
I give you hope
Here's the rope
Here's the rope
Now swing awayback to top
The Unforgettable Fire
Ice.
Your only rivers run cold,
These city lights,
They shine as silver and gold,
Dug from the night.
Your eyes as black as coal.

Walk on by, walk on through,
Walk till you run.
And don't look back.
For here, I am.
Carnival, the wheels fly and the colors spin
Through alcohol.
Red wine that punctures the skin.
Face to face in a dry and waterless place.
Walk on by, walk on through
So sad to beseige your love so,
Head on, stay this time.
Stay tonight, in a lie.
I'm only asking but I think that you know.
Come on take me away.
Come on take me away.
Come on take me home.
Home again.

And if the mountain should crumble,
Or disappear into the sea.
Not a tear, no not I stay in this time.
Stay tonight in a light.
Ever after, this love in time.
And if you save it all, save you love.
Don't push me too far tonight.back to top
Promenade
Earth, sky, sea, and rain
Here she comes back again.
Men stroll, sneak the hall
Words that build or destroy.
Dirt dry bones and stones.
Bobbed wire fence cut me down,
I'd like to be around.
In a spiral staircase
To the higher ground.
And I like a firewall
And explode.
Roman candlelightning lights up the sky.

In cracked streets, tremble under fort.
Sidestep, sidewalk.
I see you stare into space.
Have I gotten closer now,
Behind the face.
Tell me, will you dance with me,
And turn me around tonight.
Up though the spiral staircase to the higher ground.

See slide show, see side town,
Coca-cola radio radio radio . . .back to top
4th Of July
[this song is entirely instrumental]back to top
Bad
If you twist and turn away
If you tear yourself in two again
If I could, yes I would
If I could, I would
Let it go
Surrender
Dislocate

If I could throw this
Lifeless lifeline to the wind
Leave this heart of clay
See you walk, walk away
Into the night
And through the rain
Into the half-light
And through the flame

If I could through myself
Set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away
See you break, break away
Into the light
And to the day

To let it go
And so to fade away
To let it go
And so fade away

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping
Oh, no, no, no

If you should ask then maybe they'd
Tell you what I would say
True colors fly in blue and black
Bruised silken sky and burning flag
Colors crash, collide in blood shot eyes

If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would
Let it go...

This desperation
Dislocation
Separation
Condemnation
Revelation
In temptation
Isolation
Desolation
Let it go

And so fade away
To let it go
And so fade away
To let it go
And so to fade away

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping
Oh, no, no, noback to top
Indian Summer Sky
In the ocean
Cut, swim, deep the sky
Like there, I don't know why
In the forest, there's a clearing
I run there towards the light
Sky...
It's a blue sky

In the earth a hole dig deep, decide
If I could, I would
Up for air to swim against the tide
Hey, hey, hey
Up toward the sky
It's a blue sky

To lose along the way
The spark that set the flame
To flicker and to fade
On this the longest day

So wind blow through to my heart
So wind blow through my soul
So wind blow through to my heart
So wind blow through my soul
So wind blow through to my heart...

You give yourself to this the longest day
You give yourself, you give it all away

Two rivers run too deep
The seasons change and so do i
The light that strikes the tallest trees
Will light a way for i
Will light a way
Up toward the sky
It's a blue sky

To lose along the way
The spark that set the flame
To flicker and to fade
On this the longest day

So wind go through to my heart
So wind blow through my soul
So wind go through to my heart
So wind blow through my soul
So wind go through to my heart
So wind blow through my soul
So wind go through to my heart...

You give yourself to this the longest day
You give yourself, you give it all awayback to top
Elvis Presley And America
(Black flash)
Black flash over my own love
Tell me of my eyes
Black flash come though my own life
Telling these things
And I believe them
And I believe in you

White flash sees the sky
And it turns its side from you
She won't turn my back
And I know you turn so blue
And you know
And your sky is feeling blue
And your heart
So cold when I'm with you
And you feel
Like no one told you to
And your time is your side
And your time with me
Ah, don't talk to me
Ah, don't talk to me
Don't talk to me

You know
Like no one told you how
But you know
Though the king that howls has howled
But you feel like sentimental
But you don't care
If I just share it in your heart
(Heart...)

Hopelessly
So hopelessly
I'm breaking through for you and me
And you don't
Though no one told you to
And you found out
Where you were going, where to
You're through with me
But I know that you will be back
For more

And you know
And though no one told you so
And you know, blue sky
Like a harder shade of blue
And you walk
When you want
To let go
Me, I'm the outside, tell me fade away
Drop me down but don't break me
In your sleep

In your sleep, inside
It's in your heart and mine
Whole sea is dark
It's in your heart and mine

Sweetly, those will come
Loving is on your side walking through
So let me in your heart
Your beat is like something...

They...
Run...
See say you're sad and reach by
So say you're sad above beside
Oh stay sad above beside
So stay sad above we said

You know I don't
No one told you how
(And you don't)
(And you wipe sweat off your white brow)
And you care
And no one told you tried
And your heart
Is left out from the side

And the rain beats down
And the shame goes down
And this rain keeps on coming down
And this sky
Tonight...

You know "S" "O" "N" "G", why
You're going go join to God
You know "S" "O" "N" "G", why
Give away some him no lie
Give away some my de day no

You know
And though no one told you sky
And you feel
Like you pretend you can
You say go, you live
Go live outside of me
Don't you leave
Don't leave out part of me
Then I can feel
Like I feel before
Like I hurt now
And I see the floor
If you pick me up
Bits and pieces on this floorback to top
Mlk
Sleep, sleep tonight.
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thunder cloud
Passes rain.
So let it rain, rain down him.
So let it be.

Sleep, sleep tonight
And may your dreams be realized.
If the thundercloud passes rain,
So let it rain.
Let it rain, rain on himback to top
