Home – Sept 2022

Take that look of worry
I’m an ordinary man
They don’t tell me nothing
So I find out what I can
There’s a fire that’s been burning
Right outside my door
I can’t see but I feel it
And it helps to keep me warm
So I, I don’t mind
No I, I don’t mind

Seems so long I’ve been waiting
Still don’t know what for
There’s no point escaping
I don’t worry anymore
I can’t come out to find you
I don’t like to go outside
They can’t turn off my feelings
Like they’re turning off a light
But I, I don’t mind
No I, I don’t mind
Oh I, I don’t mind
No I, I don’t mind

So take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
Cos I’ve been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you

Take that look of worry, mine’s an ordinary life
Working when it’s daylight
And sleeping when it’s night
I’ve got no far horizons
I don’t wish upon a star
They don’t think that I listen
Oh but I know who they are
And I, I don’t mind
No I, I don’t mind
Oh I, I don’t mind
No I, I don’t mind

So take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
Well I’ve been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you

But I don’t remember
Take, take me home…

A Thousand Years – June 2022

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone?
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Hanalei – April 2022

I miss the kiss of treachery
The shameless kiss of vanity
The soft and the black and the velvety
Up tight against the side of me
And mouth and eyes and heart all bleed
And run in thickening streams of greed
As bit by bit, it starts the need
To just let go, my party piece
Yeah, I miss the kiss of treachery
The shameless kiss before I feed
The stench of a love for younger meat
And the sound it makes when it cuts in deep
The holding up on bended knees
The addiction of duplicities
As bit by bit, it starts the need
To just let go, my party piece
But I never said I would stay to the end
I leave you with babies and hoping for secrecy
Screaming like this in the hope of sincerity
Scream with me over and over and over
I leave you with photographs, pictures of trickery
Stains on the carpet and stains on the scenery
Songs about happiness murmured in dreams
And we both of us knew how the ending would be
So it’s all come back round to breaking apart again
Breaking apart like I’m made up of glass again
Making it up behind my back again
Making it afraid for the fear of sleep again
Pushed in deep to bare bone again
Take him outside like he’s all on his own again
Round and round and round, it’s coming apart again
Over and over and over
Now that I know that I’m breaking to pieces
I’ll pull out my heart and I’ll feed it to anyone
Crying for comfort, crocodiles cry
For the love of the crowd and the three cheers from everyone
Dropping through sky, through the glass of the roof
Through the roof of your mouth, through the mouth of your eye
Through the eye of the needle, it’s easier for me
To get closer to heaven than ever feel whole again
I never said I would stay to the end
I’d leave you with babies and hoping for secrecy
Screaming like this in the hole of sincerity
Scream with me over and over and over
I leave you with photographs, pictures of trickery
And stains on the carpet and stains on the memory
Songs about happiness murmured in dreams
And we both of us knew how the end always is
How the end always is

 

Waimea – December 2021

I’m always wanting more
Anything I haven’t got
Everything I want it all
I just can’t stop
Planning all my days away
Never find new ways to stay
Never feel enough today
Tomorrow must be more
More drink, more dreams
More bed, more drugs
More lust, more lies
More hate, more love
More fear, more fun
More pain, more flesh
More stars, more smiles
More fame, more sex
However hard I want
I know deep down inside
I’ll never really get
More hope or any more time
Any more time
Any more time
Any more time
I want the sky to fall in
I want lightning and thunder
I want fire instead of rain
I want the world to make me wonder
Want to walk on water
Take a trip to the moon
Oh, give me all this
And give me it soon
More drink, more dreams, more drugs
More lust, more lies, more love
However hard I want
I know deep down inside
I’ll never really get
More hope or any more time

Sunsets – September 2021

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I’ll wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails, she makes me wait
And I wait without you
With or without you
With or without you
Through the storm, we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I’m waiting for you
With or without you
With or without you, ah, ah
I can’t live
With or without you
And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away
My hands are tied
My body bruised, she got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

Christmas – May 2021

When you’re still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn’t really feel like Christmas at all

Up above candles on air flicker, oh they flicker and they float
And I’m up here holding on to all those chandeliers of hope
Like some drunken Elvis singing, I go singing out of tune
Saying how I always loved you darling and I always will

When you’re still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn’t really feel like Christmas at all
Still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn’t really feel like Christmas at all

Those Christmas lights
Light up the street
Down where the sea and city meet
May all your troubles soon be gone
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on

Those Christmas lights
Light up the street
Maybe they’ll bring her back to me
Then all my troubles will be gone
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on

Oh Christmas lights
Light up the street
Light up the fireworks in me

May all your troubles soon be gone
Those Christmas lights keep shining on

Faith – March 2021


Mother, mother, tell your children
That their time has just begun
I have suffered for my anger
There are wars that can’t be won

Father, father, please believe me
I am laying down my guns
I am broken like an arrow
Forgive me
Forgive your wayward son

Everybody needs somebody to love
(mother, mother)
Everybody needs somebody to hate
(please believe me)
Everybody’s bitching
‘Cause they can’t get enough
And it’s hard to hold on
When there’s no one to lean on

Faith: you know you’re gonna live through the rain
Lord, we’ve gotta keep the faith
Faith: don’t you let your love turn to hate
Now we’ve gotta keep the faith
Keep the faith
Keep the faith
Lord we’ve gotta keep the faith

Tell me baby when I hurt you
Do you keep it all inside
Do you tell me all’s forgiven
Just hide behind your pride

Everybody needs somebody to love
(mother, father)
Everybody needs somebody to hate
(please don’t leave me)
Everybody’s bleeding
‘Cause the times are tough
Well it’s hard to be strong
When there’s no one to dream on

Faith: you know you’re gonna live through the rain
Lord we’ve gotta keep the faith
Faith!
Don’t you know it’s never too late
Right now we’ve gotta keep the faith
Faith: don’t you let your love turn to hate
Lord we’ve gotta keep the faith

Keep the faith
Keep the faith
Oh, we’ve gotta keep the faith
Keep the faith
Keep the faith
Lord we’ve gotta keep the faith

I’ve been walking in the footsteps
Of society’s lies
I don’t like what I see no more
Sometimes I wish I was blind
Sometimes I wait forever

To stand out in the rain
So no one sees me cryin’
Trying to wash away this pain

Mother father
(Everybody needs somebody to love)
There’s things I’ve done I can’t erase
(Everybody needs somebody to hate)
Every night we fall from grace
(Everybody’s bitching ’cause they can’t get enough)
It’s hard with the world in your face
(Everybody bleeds)
Trying to hold on, trying to hold on
(Everybody, keep the pain)

Faith: you know you’re gonna live through the rain
Lord you’ve gotta keep the faith
Faith: don’t you let your love turn to hate
Right now we’ve gotta keep the faith

Perfect – December 2020

There is something that I see
In the way you look at me
There’s a smile, there’s a truth
In your eyes

But in an unexpected way
On this unexpected day
Could it mean this is where I belong
It is you I have loved all along

It’s no more a mystery, it is finally clear to me
You’re the home my heart searched for so long
And it is you I have loved all along

There were times I ran to hide
Afraid to show the other side
Alone in the night without you

But I know just who you are
And I know you hold my heart
Finally this is where I belong
And it is you I have loved all along

It’s no more a mystery, it is finally clear to me
You’re the home my heart searched for so long
It is you I have loved all along

Over and over I’m filled with emotion
Your love rushes through my veins
And I am filled with the sweetest devotion
As I look into your perfect face

It’s no more a mystery, it is finally clear to me
You’re the home my heart searched for so long
It is you I have loved
It is you I have loved
It is you I have loved all along

Serenity – May 2020

Sir, we have a green light.
Inspection’s positive and we’re clear for up-thrust.

Think she’ll hold together?

She’s tore up plenty. But she’ll fly true.

Make sure everything’s secure.
Could be bumpy.

Always is.

Taking her out…should be about a day’s ride
to get you back to your girls.

Right.

Ready to get off this heap, back to civilized life?

I, uh…I don’t know.

Good answer.

So, you gonna ride shotgun with me, help me fly?

That’s the plan.

Think you can work out…
Okay.Clearly some aptitude for the…
It ain’t all buttons and charts, little albatross.
You know what the first rule of flying is?
Well, I suppose you do, since you already know what I’m about to say.

I do. But I like to hear you say it.

Love.
You can learn all the math in the ‘verse…
but you take a boat in
the air that you don’t love…
she’ll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.
Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down…
tells you she’s hurting before she keels.
Makes her a home.

Storm’s getting worse.

We’ll pass through it soon enough.

Beautiful Life – May 2020

I was lost, but you found me
Hiding in the shadows from my destiny
And you saw things that no one else could see
You saved me when I was my worst enemy

It feels so good to be alive
Just you and me tonight
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life
I heard your heart call mine
And then all the stars aligned
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life

Spread through me like a wild flame
I feel it in my veins
I’ll never ever be the same
I’ll never be the same
Cheers to the thing money can’t buy
Can’t buy what I feel inside
This thing, I can’t deny
Our pretty little paradise

It feels so good to be alive
Just you and me tonight
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life
I heard your heart call mine
And then all the stars aligned
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life
