Stormy Skies


Stormy Skies


STORMY SKIES

It shall end the sun will go down

Beauty but melancholy at the same time

By the sea you have to embrace

That’s life, that’s relations

Acceptance of the waveform

And arising and falling at the same time

By the sea you have to embrace

Keep looking forward

 

 

 

It shall end the sun will go down

Beauty but melancholy at the same time,

At the same time, at the same time

Stormy skies won’t put me off

Stormy skies won’t let me down

Stormy skies….

It shall end the sun will go down

Beauty but melancholy at the same time

By the sea you have to embrace

That’s life, that’s relations

 

Acceptance of the waveform

And arising and falling at the same time

By the sea you have to embrace

Keep looking forward

Keep looking, keep looking, keep looking forward

You can look forward, just keep your head up high

You will you will you will

Impermanence


Impermanence


IMPERMANENCE

Colour, don’t want it to stop

So can you come around and see all the circles and the sounds I’ve got

And the lights, don’t want to turn off

But I’m happy here soaking up all the refractions I’ve caught

The clock, don’t want it to stop

For there’s a never ending line of giants trying to push me off

But you want to be something you’re not

So my empathy is draining quickly as I beat my heart

As the colours’ fade to grey

All that was here has gone away

It’s all impermanent you see

That’s the way, its meant to be.

Meant to be. Meant to be

The calm, don’t want it to stop

So as the leaves fall down down so will the storm

But you want to be someone you’re not

So my empathy is drifting far away you beat my heart

As the colours fade to grey

All that was here has gone away

It’s all impermanent you see, that’s the way

When the shadows take over me

Turn away from eternity

No regrets for yesterday, that’s the way it’s meant to be

Meant to be meant to be.

As the colours’ fade x2

Al that was here gone x2

It’s all impermanent, all impermanent, all impermanent

The waves they won’t remain that way, they arise and die and start again

Don’t try to escape the inevitable there’s nothing constant in us all

There’s nothing constant in us all, there’s nothing constant in us all

As the colours’ fade to grey

All that was here has gone away

It’s all impermanent you see, that’s the way

Raging River


Raging River


RAGING RIVER

As she turned to darkness

They all did did

Where did it come from?

Was it simple as what coursed through their veins?

Fire, we’re in the middle of a raging river

Fire, we’re in the middle of a raging river

But only if you’re worth that, only if you are

But you won’t talk

 

 

 

I’m beginning to know you,  

Where you’ve been and who are you

Me I am tired, tongue tied

I’m losing my mind, free of words I’m

Losing my mind

Take me away I’m too high

Take me away I’m inspired

I’m losing my mind, free of words

I’m losing me mind

I see myself in the mirror...

As she turned to darkness

They all did, did

Where did it come from?

Was it simple as what coursed though their veins?

I’d like to know you have it in you to be like that

I can see

Fire, we’re in the middle of a raging river

But only if you’re worth that, only if you’re worth that

And they see it in me, and they see it in you…

Metamorphosis


Metamorphosis


METAMORPHOSIS

So you said today, it’s not so good

You worked yourself too hard

Put in everything mama

Which I do respect

But in turn you’re on the floor

Give yourself a break

Don’t get caught

For if you do

You’ll be the first to know…be the first to know

So in just a day, it changes fast

Being in control, to at the mercy of your heart

Take it on board and just live it as it comes

You’re so strong

Give yourself a break

Don’t get caught

For if you do

You’ll be the first to know

Give yourself a break

Don’t get caught

For if you do

Be the first to know

Be the first to know

Listen to your heart don’t let it go out the window x2

Listen to your heart don’t let it go out the window

Give yourself a break

Don’t get caught

For if you do

You’ll be the first to know

Give yourself a break

Don’t get caught

Doesn’t help it, wasn’t here to, fight the notion

For if you do

Be the first to know

You’ll be the first to know, don’t let it go out the window x 2

Doesn’t help it, wasn’t here to, fight the notion x 4

Light & Dark


Light & Dark


LIGHT & DARK

Blowing hot and cold

know it must be hard

I’m up and down

it’s just the way it works

But that’s the place

I feel I’m in right now

Nothing permanent;

just a game I’m in

It’s a game I chose to play

doesn’t lend itself to feeling secure

You’re not used to me that way

doesn’t mean it's for you to endure

 

Watching the clock

as my time ticks on. 

Sometimes I cry

sometimes I smile wide.

And I feel the blues

but I feel real too.

Nothing permanent; 

just a game I’m in.

It’s a game I chose to play

doesn’t lend itself to feeling secure.

You’re not used to me that way

doesn’t mean it's for you to endure.

'Cos there’s darkness on the side of your face

I can sense it in the air today.

I suppose that’s what I’m to say

there’s both light and dark at play... [x2]

Blowing hot and cold

know it must be hard.

I’m up and down

it’s just the way it works.

But that’s the place

I feel I’m in right now.

Nothing permanent;

Just a game I’m in...

Prophetise


Prophetise


PROPHETISE

Let us go our hands embrace

Furtively we search our way

For I’ve known these eyes

Already known them all

Nothing seems new today

As familiar face displays

For we’ve seen the skies

Already seen them all

On my way

On my way

For the lights are dim but I can find my way

On my way

On my way

And never be afraid to pave the way

 

 

 

 

What we see we chose, to face

Noticing the marks, we trace

And bask in eyes we hoped for all along

What we know now we worked for

Dealing with the grey and knock backs

And held those burning stares

We’ve held them all

On my way

On my way

For the lights are dim but I can find my way

On my way

On my way

And never be afraid to pave the way

Give in to the moment

For us got us this far

Not without patience

We become who we are..

See I'm Calling


See I'm Calling


SEE I'M CALLING

See I told you so, see I’m calling out and you can hear me

Whether near or far from where I am,

I don’t need to shout

You’ll take my hand, and had it from the start

Like the blood that runs through my veins

You inspire me to believe

 

 

 

 

See I told you so, see I’m calling out and you can hear me

So when the fear returns, I breathe you in and feel real

Face to face with my fears, there’s strength in your allegiance

Grounded by our unity of mind

That holds me up

When skies fade to grey, changing seasons guide our way

And I’m calling out your name,  I’m calling out your name

When you’re looking for the answer

I call out your name

Give in to the seasons

The skies and all they rain (x4)

When skies fade to grey, changing seasons guide our way

And I’m calling out your name,  I’m calling out your name (x2)

Dirty Yam


Dirty Yam


DIRTY YAM

We fall in, we fall out

The same old ways, we fly out

We’re all here, we’re all out

It takes time to feel about

So deep in, so far out

A balance to strike to work it out

We’re within, we’re without

Falling in, we clamber out

Finding the way through,

Knowing how to play the game (x4)

 

 

 

To walk in, to walk on

Remain unscathed and learn from

We all fear, we all doubt

Takes time to feel about

So deep in, so far out

Challenge to be, to dream aloud

Beginning to see now

Falling in, we clamber out

Finding the way through,

Knowing how to play the game (x4)

We won’t try to lead out astray

Light behind guiding your way

When countless choices bombard you everyday

There’s a skill in seeing straight, there’s a skill in seeing

Straight…….

Finding the way through,

Knowing how to play the game (x4)

Einfall


Einfall


EINFALL

So it’s no coincidence that I came upon you

Knew that very first day you were made of something true

You had that fire, couldn’t put it into words

They weren’t required we already knew

And I wouldn’t be here without you.

No I wouldn’t be here…

 

 

It’s our given expression, created by two

We move together in these patterns we use

There’s a fire,  it burns deep inside

And one desire,  to get into you.

And I wouldn’t be here without you

No I wouldn’t be here without you

(x2)

Can't Switch Off


Can't Switch Off


CAN'T SWITCH OFF

My mind is working round the clock

And no matter how I try, I cannot sleep

It’s beginning to send me a little loopy,

Can someone teach me how to switch off

I just want to switch off

And think of nothing (x2)

My mind is working round the clock

And cutting me no slack it rolls on and on.

It says you go and think it over now,

There’s plenty to ponder

Go and think it over now, go and think it over now

When the clock won’t move forward

Time won’t move on

Hand is going nowhere

Seconds never felt so long

I just want to switch off

And think of nothing

I wonder why, given time

Running round in circles, no clear lines to find

So the clock won’t lie, as the hours pass me by

Can’t put one foot forward without leaving one behind

When you’ve given in to time, heart over mind

Well I don’t quite believe, we know which way to go

You look so far ahead at all there is to come

As the hear and now just fades away to one.

 

When the clock won’t move forward

Time won’t move on

Hand is going nowhere

Seconds never felt so long 

I just want to switch off.

And think of nothing
