Calling

Roll the carpet and pour out the wine
Treat me like it's your first valentine
Cause honey baby you've been on my mind
Like all of us who have waited for a time

I'm calling can you hear me
The angels will steer me
To your door, feel so sure
The night is the brightest
Who knows what I really will hear
What I really will say
What I really will feel
Who knows what you really will hear
What you really will say
What you really will feel

Call the papers and call your friends
No longer do we have to pretend
Cause honey baby you've been on my mind
Like all of us who have waited for a time, oh

I'm calling can you hear me
The angels will steer me
To your door, feel so sure
The night is the brightest
Who knows what I really will hear
What I really will say
What I really will feel
Who knows what you really will hear
What you really will say
What you really will feel

Quicken your beating drums and
Draw me some wildfires, oh

I'm calling can you hear me
The angels will steer me
To your door, feel so sure
The night is the brightest
Who knows what I really will hear
What I really will say
What I really will feel
Who knows what you really will do
What you really will say
What you really will feel

I'm calling can you hear me
The angels will steer me
To your door, feel so sure
The night is the brightest
Who knows what I really will hear
What I really will say
What I really will feel
Who knows what you really will do
What you really will say
What you really will feel

I'm calling can you hear me
The angels will steer me
To your door, feel so sure
The night is the brightest
Who knows what I really will hear
What I really will say
What I really will feel
Who knows what you really will do
What you really will say
What you really will feel

I'm calling can you hear me
The angels will steer me
To your door, feel so sure
The night is the brightest.

Yes, It's Called Desire

Sweet melodies bring bitter memories
Sing in my ear and drown out my heart
Who will it be to silence the storms
Who will it be to bring on the organs, the violins the charms

Hold out your arms the streets are on fire
Don't waste no time, yes, it's called desire
Getting quite sleepy but you held the door
The light from your eyes asks me for more

Rolling down hills and climbing up trees
Means something to you when you are locked
In New York city
Come find me there if I'm anywhere
I will be in the gardens beneath the tree line
Make a bee line

Don't waste no time, the streets are on fire
Hold out your arms yes it's called desire
Getting quite sleepy but you held the door
The light from your eyes asks me for more

Don't waste no time, the streets are on fire
Hold out your arms yes it's called desire
Getting quite sleepy but you held the door
The light from your eyes asks me for more

Don't waste no time, the streets are on fire
Hold out your arms yes it's called desire
Getting quite sleepy but you held the door
The light from your eyes asks me for more
Asks me for more

Don't Use My Broken Heart

Don't use my broken heart to pick up other girls
You know as well as I do or should I remind you
That yours was broken too
So smile through your days
And believe in what the papers say
You know as well as I do,
Or should I remind you?
Nothing is sad as a man with bells on his shoes

So don't look back
Don't look down,
Stay real still,
I'm not around

Don't use the records I played you,
To seduce and reduce what remains
You know as well as I do,
They only will remind you
That you'll never have this heart again

So don't look back
Don't look down
Stay real still
I'm not around

Halloween, it was you who kissed me
That's where it began and all ended for me

And I loved you before you were king
Before the money was rolling in
And I was just a child and I was running wild
But I only ran wild for you\

So don't look back
Don't look down
Stay real still
I'm not around
Don't look back
Don't look down
Stay real still
I'm not around

How Sweet

I'm letting it go oh
Gonna tear it apart
Go back to the start
Pull the strings of my little heart oh
Gonna build it right back
Into a castle not a shack
With the sun across my back
Are you ready

Oh stay with your lady
Lay just come back and save me
Stay it's so slow with me honey
But oh how sweet, how sweet, how sweet how sweet
Life could be

Time falls like snow
On the tip of my tongue
When it's gone, it's gone
Now hand me your gun

Where did you go
Oh did you tear it apart
Now you're back at the start
Now there's nothing here left
Of my broken heart

Stay
Stay with you lady
Lay just come back and save me
Stay it's so slow with me honey
But oh how sweet, how sweet how sweet
Life could be
Oh how sweet, how sweet, how sweet
Life would be

When I am walking down his street
I can hear the rhythm and the music and the beat of his feet
I know I'll find you there
Tied up in some other conversation, frustration
But it just won't be mine
Stay
Stay with you lady
Lay just come back and save me
Stay it's so slow with me honey
But oh how sweet, how sweet how sweet
Life could be

He's Gone

He has gone
Like meaning from a song
He is gone
Like a vampire in the sun
Apologies, but no thank yous please
He is gone
Like a bullet from a gun
So my wheels are turning
And this heart is yearning

Oh Daddy give me one more chance
At least another dance
Cross the floor
Spin me round
Throw me up
And push me down
Oh throw me back
But pull me up close to your heart

He has gone
Like a teenager from home
Webs been spun
And the funeral march has been sung
And our wheels are turning
And our hearts are burning oh

Oh Daddy give me one more chance
At least another dance
Cross the floor
Spin me round
Throw me up
And push me down
Oh throw me back
But pull me up close to your heart

Oh throw me down
And pull me up
Crash into me and then break apart
Throw me down
But pull me up close to your heart

Follow my eyes across the room
You drunken groom
What a surprise
Music stopped the other shoe has dropped

If you go then I go
If you throw then I throw
But you know and I know
I just can't dance with anyone

Oh throw me down
Pull me back
Crash into me and then break apart
Pull me up
Just pull me up close to your heart
Oh throw me down
And pull me up
Crash into me and then fall apart
Pull me up
Just pull me up close to your heart
He is gone
He is gone
He is gone
He is gone
He is gone
He is gone
He is gone
He is gone
He is gone
He is gone

Home

Home I don't know where you could be
Look for you in mountains of oceans across seas
Though we live under the same moon
Catch you in the glimmer of my spoon
Would you be
Where love raised his head
Where my youth was gallantly led
And the sun took a holiday
Fell in love, decided to stay

I'm so tired
And down, down, down, down, down
Down down down down
Down down down down

Could you be where my best friend plays
Where the nights bleed longer then the days
Where I lost my only child
Where there are no trees but wolves run wild
Maybe somewhere I have never seen
Tangiers or the bank of Berlin
Strangers can veil a friendly eye
Rather be with you than a lie

I am so tired and down
Down down down down
Down down down down
Down down down down

Could you be where my angel sleeps
When he sings willows begin to weep
When I think of all I have done
Home you know you're the one

Home is where my heart lives
Home is where my heart lives
Home is where my heart lives
Home is where my heart lives

I like what you did, you did a part at the end
That was really nice

Star Signs

And I still love him tonight
No distance or time can bite
And I still feel out of place
In crowded rooms
And the silence of space

No love could be
This hard to beat
I still read your star signs
Star signs

And they know just when to hit
When morning comes and your friends
They gotta split
And you know just what to say
When no one's around you know how to play

No love could be this hard
To beat
I still read your star signs, star signs

Baby, baby can't you see
This world ain't big enough for you or me so
Light the candles and turn out your light
Turn on my light

No love could be this hard to beat
I still read your star signs, star signs
I don't even know what they mean
What you mean

I don't even know what you mean
What you mean

Christmas

Words are falling form your lips like
Christmas to my hips
So dangerous the strangest feeling of being
I want willow trees, melodies and flowers counting
Hours till he's breathing leaving the rest behind

Cause I'm full of love
Like the waves wash the sounds clean
And the sun sparkles meadows green

I want kisses and dresses
A late night message that cradles, halos me to sleep
Cause I am full of love
Yea I;m full of, of the above

Like a mother leads her cubs astray
I'm the teach chiles at the end of the day
I'll stay

So cover me but lover be patient
Love's ancient but not for me

Cause I'm full of, of love
Yea I'm full of, of the above
Like Christmas stays with you
Walk through darkened streets as we lay true
Lights from your heart lead me to you

Ballerina

I'll never feel the weight of your hands
Side mine like diamonds
Lay so far ballerina
Cupcake and my earthquake
Wakes me from my sleep bed
Never comes are you breathing
Waiting for me

I didn't really want you
But I want you now
Was so foolish of me
Feel you tumbling down
Into that empty room
The lights went out
Want to rescue want to scream out loud

I didn't think I needed you
But I need you now
Was so empty in me
Feel you crashing down
Into the empty world
The music stops
Wanna rescue want to scream out loud
You will always be mine

The room spins
Pull you from me
My body burns
Tell me of the rainbows
The colors that the rain throws
Ballerina dance softly
She knows when to come only
When she's called and slowly coming to

I didn't really want you
But I need you
Was so foolish of me
To feel you tumbling down
Into that empty room
The lights went out
Want to rescue want to scream out loud

I didn't think I wanted you
But I want you now
Was so empty in me
Feel you crashing down
Into the empty world
The music stops
Want to rescue want to scream out loud
You will always be

So so sorry
Just come back for me now
So so sorry
Just come back to me now
Oh sorry

I didn't think I wanted you
But I want you now
Was so foolish of me
Feel you tumbling down
Into that empty room
The lights went out
Wanna rescue want to scream out loud
I didn't think I needed you
But I need you now
Was so empty in me
Feel you tumbling down
Into that empty room
The lights went out
I wanna rescue want to scream out loud
That you will always be mine

One Kind of Love

Speak to me in rhymes
And all kinds of pretty words to defend my world
Tell me it's divine
War keeps raging
Through my melodies
It's a tragedy to find

There's only one kind of love
And that's love sweet love
Try to drag it down
And change its name
But it's always gonna be love and it will mess
You up the same

If you swept away by the girls of summer
Those dancing birds of prey
If you go away further then my garden, the tree line,
Like a wandering neighbor's feline

Remember what I say
Before you grow too old
There's only one kind of love
And that's love, sweet love
Try to drag it down and change it's name
But it's always gonna be love
And it will mess you up the same
The same
All feelings are good
Ask your friendly doctor it's all understood
All feelings are so good
Ask your friendly doctor it's understood yeah
All feelings are so good
Ask your friendly mama it's understood yeah
All feelings are so good
Ask your friendly papa it's understood
All feelings are too good
Ask your friendly doctor it's understood
Cause there is only one kind of love
And thats love sweet love

Dues to Pay

The moon sits above the streets
Echo the beats of the lonely city feet
As my heart
Sits inside it's cage
Talks across the page
Where songs for you are made

Oh it's only been pain loving you
Your're my dues to pay
I hunt down the night that brought you here
And made you this way
Cause I just can't wait

As I wake up
Turn to put my makeup
Trying to shake up the shape I am in
As I stumble in and out of bars
Talk of fancy cars and wounded love scars

Oh it's only been pain loving you
You're my dues to pay
I hunt down the night that brought you here
And made you this way
Cause I just can't wait, baby baby

All along this candle burned for you
All along keep coming back for you
All along this candle burned for you, you you

It's only been pain loving you
You're my dues to pay
I hunt down the night that brought you here
And made you this way
Cause I just can't wait, baby baby baby
Baby baby baby
When you hold me
The way you hold me
Baby baby baby
When you hold me
The way you hold me
Baby baby baby
When you hold me
The way you hold me
Baby baby baby
When you hold me
The way you hold me
Baby baby baby baby
Baby baby baby baby
Baby baby baby
When you hold me
The way you hold me
Baby baby baby
Just hold me the way you hold me
