SOLACE

Waking in the morning, 

you won’t get through to me.

Put my old jeans on,

Brew my coffee strong

Set my wandrin’ soul free.

 

Free as sunshine, 

I’ll come and go.

Free in winter, 

I’ll fall like snow.

Loved one’s will leave as the time grows old,

but there’s peace in the fabric of memories we hold.

 

Sometimes it seems as though, 

my heart is fooling me.

Maybe this whole life, 

is nothing but a dream.

 

And I won’t find freedom,

until I find my truth.

There’s no use in chasing time, 

because I’m bound to lose.

And I won’t find answers, 

in the books I read,

Because in there reason,

there’s no space for me.

 

Down by the pine trees,

where the flowers bloom.

Carried by the wind,

hear the springtime sing

and I’ll watch the weather pass on through.

 

With the seasons,

We come to change.

Some days of sunshine,

Some days of rain.

Some days the darkness can hide your way,

just don’t let your heart fall,

soon there’ll be brighter days.

And I won’t find freedom,

until I find my truth.

There’s no use in chasing time, 

because I’m bound to lose.

And I won’t find answers, 

in the books I read,

Because in there reason,

there’s no space for me.

 

Sometimes it seems as though, 

my heart is fooling me.

Maybe this whole life, is nothing but a dream.

 

And I won’t find freedom,

until I find my truth.

There’s no use in chasing time, 

because I’m bound to lose.

And I won’t find answers, 

in the books I read,

Because in there reason,

there’s no space for me.

 

WE WILL BE FREE.

 

RAINFALL

Is there someone there?

Can you patch me through?

Despite my fears,

I can’t get hold of you.

 

Where’s the sunshine

and her shades of blue?

It keeps on raining,

I don’t want it to.

 

~

 

Inside this song,

you can find a place.

You can rest your heart

I will keep it safe.

I’m losing touch,

over my control.

You take me in,

then you let me go.

 

~

 

Though I try so hard

Not think of you,

You remain a part of everything I do.

I try stay strong,

But you make me weak.

Defences gone,

there’s nothing left if me.

 

~

 

Something doesn’t feel right,

Operator,

put me back on the line.

I’m losing my damn mind,

Operator,

Put me back on the line.

 

INDIGO

I look to the night sky,

and ask,

where do all your secrets hide?

Your indigo skies,

the mask to your disguise,

may be fooling them

but you’re not fooling me;

pull the strings too far and you’ll fall.

 

Come on,

let me in.

Don’t leave me waiting out here again.

I’m getting tired of your ways

and I’m growing sick of this game.

Give me some truth now.

 

~

 

Suspended under your gaze,

I wonder,

who am I?

Just the worn out parts,

From some faded stars,

That have coalesced in time.

 

And what of my kingdom?

Will it burn down all the same?

Are we just the teardrops that fall with the passing rain?

 

 

~

 

 

I look to the night sky and ask,

where do all your secrets hide?

Your indigo skies,

the mask to your disguise,

may be fooling them,

but you’re not fooling me.

Pull the strings too far and you’ll fall.

 

I look to the night sky and ask,

where do all your secrets hide?

 

ST. JAMES INFIRMARY

I went down to St James Infirmary

I saw my baby there,

She was stretched out on a long white table,

So cold, so sweet, so sweet, so fair.

 

Let her go, 

Let her go, 

God bless her,

Wherever she may be.

She can search this whole world over

She won't ever find another man like me.

 

~

 

When I die, 

bury me in straight laced shoes.

A box backed suit

and a Stetson hat

Put a 20 dollar gold piece on my watch chain,

So the boys know I died standin' pat.

 

Let her go, 

let her go, 

God bless her,

Wherever she may be.

She can search this whole world over

She won't ever find another man like me.

 

~

 

Folks I’m going down,

down to St James Infirmary.

I’m gonna see my baby there,

I don’t want to see her on a long white table,

So cold, so sweet, so sweet, so fair.

 

Let her go, 

let her go, 

God bless her,

Wherever she may be.

She can search this whole world over

She won't ever find another man like me.

ANXIOUS

I had a dream I was stuck in a storm alone,

All of my friends had left and ran back home.

It’s cold, waiting in the rain.

Waiting for time to change her ways,

Take me back home again.

~

 

When summer comes, she never stays here for long.

One day she’s here and the next, she’ll be gone.

These clouds seem to turn a certain grey,

Every time my darling moves away.

But I’ll see her again someday.

~

 

When winter comes, he just won’t let me go.

But I’ll endure the cold if he’ll bring snow.

Once more into the fray,

My anxious mind leads me astray,

It's cold waiting in the rain.

 

NO SHOES, NO NEWS

I've got no money for my ticket

and I doubt I'll have any soon.

Just some scraps of paper in my pocket,

I'll stitch them up and try to them through.

Won't you leave me to my dreams now?

The roses never smelled too sweet.

This time tomorrow, I'll be washed out

I may be young,

but shit,

I ain't free.

Walk your ine son,

Because you'll find no peace,

in giving them your tears.

There'll come your time son,

just keep your chin up

and you'll soon be out of here.

~

Another day sat at the window,

watching all the planes go by.

To stranger destinations unknown,

I can dream about them in my mind.

Walk your ine son,

Because you'll find no peace,

in giving them your tears.

There'll come your time son,

just keep your chin up

and you'll soon be out of here.

~

Still got no one to call my own yet,

but maybe that's my own damn fault.

Well I'll go steal the colours from the sunset

And make them into something of my own.

Walk your ine son,

Because you'll find no peace,

in giving them your tears.

There'll come your time son,

just keep your chin up

and you'll soon be out of here.

~

I don't need nobody.

I've got my time now.

I don't need nobody.

I'll be fine now.
