TINY DANCER

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand Continue reading

THE ONE

I save you dancing out the ocean, running fast along the sand,
a spirit born of earth and water, fire flying from your hands.
In the instant that you love someone, in the second that the hammer hits,
reality runs up your spine and the pieces finally fit. Continue reading

TAKE ME TO THE PILOT

If you feel that it’s real i’m on trial and i’m here in your prison
Like a coin in your mint, I am dented and i’m spent with high treason.
Through a glass eye your throne is the one danger zone
Take me to the pilot for control, take me to the pilot of your soul. Continue reading

SORRY SEEMS TO BE THE HARDEST WORD

What have I got to do to make you love me, what have I got to do to make you care
What do I do when lightning strikes me and I wake to find that you’re not there.
What do I do to make you want me, what have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it’s all over and sorry seems to be the hardest word. Continue reading

SOMETHING ABOUT THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT

There was a time I was everything and nothing all in one
When you found me I was feeling like a cloud across the sun
I need to tell you how you light up every second of the day
That in the moonlight, you just shine like a beacon on the bay Continue reading

SOMEONE SAVED MY LIFE TONIGHT

When I think of those east end lights, muggy nights, the curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima donna lord you really should have been there, sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
And it’s one more beer and i don’t hear you anymore
We’ve all gone crazy lately, my friends out there rolling round the basement floor. Continue reading

SACRIFICE

It’s a human sign when things go wrong, when the scent of her lingers, and temptation’s strong.
Into the boundary, of each married man, sweet deceipt comes a callin’ and negativity lands.
Cold, cold heart, hard done by you, some things look better, baby, just passin’ through.
And it’s no sacrifice, just a simple word, it’s two hearts living in two separate worlds. Continue reading

ROCKET MAN (I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE A LONG LONG T

She packed my bags last night pre-flight, zero hour nine a.m.
And I’m gonna be high as a kite by then, I miss the earth so much i miss my wife
It’s lonely out in space on such a timeless flight.
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time, till touch down brings me round again to find Continue reading

NO VALENTINES

No more valentine’s day, no more christmas cards
I’ve thrown them all away, no more sequined stars
No birthday wishes, no more surprises
Who needs them anyway, no reason to get excited. Continue reading

MICHELLE’S SONG

Cast a pebble on the water, watch the ripples gently spreading
Tiny daughter of the camargue, we were meant to be together
We were made for one another, in a time it takes to grow up
If only we were old enough, then they might leave us both alone. Continue reading
